Rated 5 out of 5 by rockannroller I love this blender
I mix up my special blend of coffee each morning and getting out the big blender or hand mixer was more hassle than I could face before my first cup of go juice. The Cuisinart SmartStick is perfect for my quick mix fix. It comes with a great blending cup so I just add all my ingredients to the blending cup, put it under my Keurig, snap the blender on the handle and give it a couple of spins. My coffee is hot and the handle stays standing in the cup until I have decided I have had enough. I put a drop of dish soap in the cup, hot water give everything a swipe and it's ready to go again. The handle stays plugged in behind the Keurig so it's always ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DesertRose76 Great kitchen help!
I love this smart stick hand blender. The one that I have -was bought from JCP store- included a whisk and a blending/mixing cup, so it has additional accessories to the one displayed here. It is such a great help in the kitchen with preparing soups and mixing different food ingredients in small portions for quick small meals. I use it also for mashing potato, grinding small chops of meat, and making smoothies. It is also easy to clean, and won't take much space in kitchen like conventional blenders/mixers. I definitely recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dawn12 Good quality and ease of cleaning
I'm a first time user so it seems it takes awhile to completely blend (I was making home-made non-toxic body cream)..it is easy to take apart and clean and seems nice and strong tho' it sounds rather loud to me (I hate noisy appliances) AND a gorgeous color-sugar plum! Might as well have beauty and color in the kitchen as I spend so much time there!
Only used once so far so no more to report for now .

Rated 5 out of 5 by happygirlie Replacement hand blender
I bought this hand blender to replace a Braun model which had stopped working. The Cuisinart is a sturdy and well made unit and performs well. This model does everything that I expect out of it and I use it every day (really). I also had a cheaper unit a while back and it crapped out very quickly, so if you want something that lasts, spend a little more to get a good quality model. As always, I enjoy shopping at Penney's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gshumar Very nice, does the job!!
I bought this immersion blender specifically to make it easier to blend soup right in the pot instead of transferring to a blender (sometimes in batches). I have only used it once, but it worked Great!! I definitely plan to use it many more times and for a variety of things. I probably will never use my standard blender again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KitKate12 Nice Blender
Purchased this one for my sister because I like mine so much. Good immersion blender, handles everything from smoothies to soups. Still has trouble with large chunks but most immersion blenders do. It is comfortable to use to, which is something you don't always think about when buying an immersion blender.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MadCrafty Nice, very nice
I bought this because I can easily get an additional blender attachment in another color. I use one for food and the other for crafts and just keep the same motor. Works well and feels good in my hand. Its not too heavy but sturdy enough to get the job done. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crafterandcook Stainless steel blade. Perfect. My last one was a name brand & was plastic. Broke in the pot!
I'm like this for the stainless steel blade. Good grip. Strong motor for blending. My previous immersion blender came in nice packaging and had a few more features. However, the blade was plastic & broke off in my soup!
