I was looking for a kitchen gadget to help me out with my blending needs. I found the Cuisinart CSB-76 SmartStick to make an ideal choice. This Cuisinart blender is a hand blender that runs on 200-watts so it has the power I need to produce smooth blending each and every time. It is also attractive and fits well with my kitchen decor. The blender is white in color and stands vertically, with a small blade at the bottom and an ergonomic handle up top, making it easy to hold, even when the blender is running at full speed.
This immersion hand blender features an ultra-sharp blade to ensure I always get the smoothest blending in the shortest amount of time. A large guard surrounds the blade, acting as a sort of protective shield. This is helpful as past hand blenders I have tried without this feature only resulted in my getting splattered while I was blending. There are no fancy, hard to understand dials or controls on the blender and in fact, it is incredibly easy to use. There are simple push-button controls allowing me to easily set and use the blender as needed, without a ton of time or hassle involved. Since I spend a lot of time baking and preparing meals and need a blender that is quick, convenient to use and which can get the job done fast, this is ideal. It enables me to move on to other tasks, as opposed to having to constantly put together a blender and clean off large pieces each time I want to go from one job to another. Cleaning the Cuisinart SmartStick is simple, as there is only a single blade to rinse off.
Typical blenders are quite large in size, but the SmartStick by Cuisinart is not only comfortable to hold, but also very space-saving with its small design, measuring just 3 by 3 by 14 1/8 inches in size. This makes it a very convenient kitchen gadget to have, as I place it in a drawer or cupboard, or even leave it out on the countertop when it is not in use. A large-sized blender takes up such a large portion of space that it can be senseless to keep out and take up needed space on your counters.
The SmartStick is dishwasher-safe, a feature that I like as it makes cleanup easier. I feel confident with this Cuisinart as it comes with a 3-year limited warranty. This means if you ever have any troubles with your SmartStick you are – within the limitations of the warranty agreement – able to get a replacement or your money refunded. This quality hand blender is certainly a top contender if you are in need of a handy blending tool for your home or workplace.
