The one-touch control feature makes it easier for the user to add more ingredients during the blending process if necessary.
The two-hundred watt motor easily operates the Cuisinart CSB-75BC Smart Stick 2-Speed Immersion Hand Blender and provides enough power for effective blending and mixing. It features two speeds that allow the user to handle almost any food preparation with ease on either high or low speed. It is easy to activate the hand blender with only the touch of a button. Pressing and holding the button on low or high-speed blends or pulses on touch. Simply releasing the button stops the blending instantly, which gives the user more control.
The Cuisinart CSB-75BC Smart Stick 2-Speed Immersion Hand Blender is equipped with a specially designed blade that works well for mixing and stirring all foods. All types of sauces and salad dressings are easily blended regardless of the thickness or texture. Sometimes powdered drink products produce a lumpy drink if they are not blended well. This problem is eliminated with the Cuisinart CSB-75 Smart Stick hand blender that allows the use of both high and low speeds for more effective blending. It also is great for combining dry ingredients to be added to liquid ingredients.
Even though this hand blender provides plenty of power, it is extremely quiet to operate on either speed. When making some soup dishes, most of the blending can be effectively accomplished on low speed. Even chunky vegetables and thicker liquids are easily blended on low speed, which reduces excess splashing and makes cleanup easier. The sharp blade makes it easier to blend and puree in only a matter of minutes. The Cuisinart CSB-75 Smart Stick hand blender eliminates the need for a food processor or traditional blender. It evenly distributes all ingredients into a uniform mixture that is ready in a short amount of time.
This blender has many great features and works well for most blending and mixing jobs, but it does not always work as well when making drinks with ice. Smoothies made with frozen fruit and ice require using the high-speed option and the user may find that it does not always dissolve some frozen fruit. Lowering the blade on the unit would allow better blending when using a small amount of ingredients that tend to spread out during the mixing. The long cord works well and provides more flexibility for the user, but storage when not in use is a problem since it is attached to the unit.
The stick design of the Cuisinart CSB-75 Smart Stick hand blender allows it to easily reach into pots, pans, bowls and pitchers making it much more convenient to use. It is easy to clean this hand blender after using. The blending shaft is easily removed from the motor body for more thorough cleaning. The motor body requires cleaning with a sponge or damp cloth only. Any harsh abrasive cleaners should not be used in order to avoid scratching the surface. Both the shaft and the beaker are completely dishwasher safe. Once the parts are cleaned, they are easily reassembled for their next use in processing flavorful, full-bodied liquid recipes. Whether it is pureeing delicious soup or making a pot of frothy, hot chocolate, this hand blender works well.
