Taking you down memory lane with some of the best Cuisinart Blender Reviews

Let’s all agree:

Cuisinart is one of America’s most respected kitchen brands.

The sad thing is that many home cooks have no idea how extensive their selection is which is why I want to refresh your memory today.

If you’re a newbie, then this will be your perfect guide to finding the best Cuisinart blenders, and if you’re already familiar with them, just take a moment to pay some respect to some of Cuisinart’s Best Blenders of 2015.

There isn’t a lot of small talk that I can keep you occupied with, so let me get to the point here.

Cuisinart Blender Reviews

I’ve rounded up 3 of Cuisinart’s best offering for the year gone by. Here’s my countdown to their best performer…

3. Cuisinart Smart Stick Variable High Speed Hand Blender Review

I’m a total fan of immersion blenders. They’ve come a long way from being deemed unnecessary accessories to being some of the most essential tools I have in my kitchen today. The CSB-100 from Cuisinart is no exception to the rule. It’s got all you need like variable speeds, a powerful 700 Watt motor (outperforming most food processors) and a selection of attachments that are rocking!

This baby gives you the power to puree soups in the pot, whisk up a batch of meringue, whip cream, chop nuts, shred cheese and create the perfect mashed potatoes. The long, slim, stainless steel shaft reaches into bowls, pots and pitchers plus it comes with cool gadgets like the 3-cup chopper with its reversible blade, a slicing and shredding disc, a whisk, a tall pitcher and a potato masher.  I don’t see any reason why a home cook wouldn’t want to own one of these little geniuses!

The Pros:

  • It’s versatile
  • It’s made very well
  • It comes with great attachments

The Cons:

  • At roughly $90 a pop, it’s kind of expensive considering there are food processors that cost less than the Cuisinart Smart Stick Variable High Speed Hand Blender
  • It uses a cord, so you’ll always need to work it near an outlet

2. Cuisinart Smart Stick Variable Speed Cordless Rechargeable Hand Blender Review

As the solution to their regular (cord operated) version, Cuisinart ingeniously released this little beast to the market. The CSB-300 has pretty much everything that the CSB-100 as, but get this: it also comes with a kick-ass electric knife attachment for carving up those roasts and fresh loaves of bread.

This hand blender boasts 5 different speed settings and sports an anti-battery-person-approved lithium ion battery that’ll run for 20 minutes per charge. That’s 20 minutes of blending wherever the heck you feel like doing it, which I love.

Measuring in at 9.5 inches long, the CBS-300’s blade is generous enough to take care of more processing over a shorter period of time, in short, it cuts down blending time. The blender comes with a 4-cup measuring cup and a nifty little pouch to store it with the attachments.

The Pros:

  • It cuts down blending time
  • It comes with an electric carving knife attachment
  • It’s cordless

The Cons:

  • It’s heavier than most other immersion blenders (due to the rechargeable battery)
  • The handle feels a little weird and needs some getting used to

1. Cuisinart Hurricane Pro 3.5 Peak HP Blender Review

Cuisinart’s most powerful blender to date is their Hurricane Pro 3.5 Peak HP. The 3.5 Peak ensures you that the blender is armed with a commercial 3.5 Peak HP motor, but it also sports integrated BlendLogix™ technology that provides you with consistent blending speeds no matter how dense the ingredients are or how much of it you’ve got in there.

The Hurricane has a variable speed control, ranging from 3,000 to 25,000 RPM plus it also has a 30,000 RPM Turbo Burst feature for when you need a little more power for a short period of time. The 6 prong stainless steel blade takes care of just about anything you throw at it, there’s not a lot that the Hurricane can’t master.

The all metal ball bearing drive system is backed by a more-than-solid 10 Year Motor Warranty, which is a lot more than I can say for most other top-end blenders by the way. If there was ever a Cuisinart blender that stood out from the crowd, this would be it, I mean its comparable with the likes of the Vitamix and Blendtec machines.

You won’t even need an immersion blender if you’re got one of these in your arsenal, it’ll whip up hot soup right in the pitcher! The blender comes standard with a 64 ounces BPA-free Tritan pitcher, which is a perfect family and entertaining size, plus it’ll probably fit under your kitchen cabinets with ease.

I totally love the pre-programmed settings; Smoothie, Green Smoothie, Hot Soup and Crush Ice. It also has a customizable memory control function so you can program any preset button to your preferences. The Variable Speed Control Dial is hands down one of my favorite features.

The Pros:

  • It sports a powerful 1,500 watt motor
  • It comes with a Variable Speed Control Dial
  • It comes with 5 pre-programmed and timed settings
  • It has a dedicated cleaning function
  • It comes with a 3 year limited warranty and a 10 year motor warranty

The Cons:

  • It’s a bit expensive, but then again considering its abilities, it’s really not that bad
  • The lid feels cheap
  • It doesn’t have a cancel function
