Cuisinart Smart Stick
The Cuisinart Smart Stick is an immersion blender. This particular Cuisinart Smart Stick is as basic as they come and one of the cheaper Cuisinart Smart Sticks they sell, however, being a Cuisinart it is still top quality in my opinion. Amazon sells these starting around $35.00 and up depending on what you are looking for.
I have used mine to make smoothies, soups, mayonnaise……etc. You can put the blade right into a hot pot of boiling soup while it is cooking on the stove. Blending the soup slightly will thicken up the soup base. I also put the blender into a tall glass with frozen fruit and other ingredients to whip up a frozen smoothie in seconds.
There are two parts to this immersion blender, the top half that cannot get wet and the bottom half that can get wet. The black button at the top of the left picture is the power button and where you hold on to the blender.
There is ony one blade and it is very sharp. It is tucked up in the protective metal casing at the bottom to prevent getting cut. It can be a little tricky cleaning the blade because it is all one piece. I found that by rinsing immediately after using it makes this job very easy. I have even put it in my soapy dishwater and turned it on to clean it. This gadget gets a thumbs up from me.
Now for the funny part about my review of this product. I took my pictures first and sat down to write my blog. I wanted to see how much amazon sold them for now because I have had mine for a few years now. I looked at the label on my picture to see the specifications of my blender. I blew up the picture to read the fine print and what does the label say? Remove before using! I can’t tell you how many times I have used this over the past 3 or 4 years and never took off the label!
So nice it is
I love my immersion blender! I don’t use it often, but when I need one it makes the job much faster 🙂
They are wonderful!
I need a new immersion blender. Thanks for the review.
You’re welcome! I love mine!
This is one of my most used kitchen gadgets. I love using it to make soups. But I also use it to chop nuts and make smoothies. Every cook should have one in their kitchen.
I agree! You can do so much with it! Have a great day Joanna!
Yes, we tend to miss the one printed at the bottom! 😀
I just want to inform you that I have nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Please check my recent post.
I have an immersion blender. I don’t know the brand, but I have a lot of different blades. For awhile I was using it all the time. But then I got my super blender and I started using it. I need to get back to use them both!
I have so many gadgets and use them all. They all have their own purpose but really….. I just love gadgets…lol
Ha. There are so many gadgets that do so many things! Usually I don’t like to clean them. Some are easier than others!
I think the label is still on mine too. I love cuisinart products!
Oh good I’m not the only one! hahaha
