The Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender is one convenient kitchen gadget. I use it at least a few days a week for our everyday meals. I also recall that it was once very convenient for mashing up baby food too! This is one versatile tool especially if you don’t have room for too many kitchen gadgets. In addition to the blender, it comes with a whisk attachment, chopper and mixing beaker.
I use the hand blender mostly for blending cooked beans and making soups. I’ve also noticed that it’s especially handy for making Indian dals and curries. The chopper has been great for grinding up nuts and making chutney. The whisk attachment makes whipping cream a breeze over hand whipping.
I love that I can blend food in the same pot that it was made in. It saves me the time of setting up and cleaning a larger blender. The Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender is a snap to clean up. You just have to take off the attachment and wash that one piece. The stainless steel finish is an added bonus when compared to plastic. I often cook with tomato sauce and turmeric, which are notorious for staining plastic.
The Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender has an easy to use one touch button. However, this means that there is only one speed setting. I sometimes find this to be too fast and end up with some splashing if my container is not deep enough. Although it has taken some forethought and practice, I no longer have that issue.
