Review: If youâre the kind of person who likes to experiment in the kitchen, you would know that a blender is an incredibly helpful tool to have when preparing soups, creams, sauces, single-serve drinks, and others. Unfortunately, blenders arenât the easiest things in the world to clean, especially if the bottom part where the blades are attached is fixed to the pitcher. With a wand-style blender like the Cuisinart CSB-76 SmartStick Immersion Hand Blender, you can create anything you want to your heartâs content. The Cuisinart SmartStick CSB-76 is divided into two main parts: the top, which houses the blenderâs motor, and the detachable blending shaft, which is made of food-grade stainless steel. The blending shaft is tipped with the actual blades, which are shrouded with a metal hood to minimize splatter. The upper part meanwhile is covered in an ABS plastic shell with a total of 20 color options available. Cuisinartâs SmartStick CSB-76 makes use of a 200-watt motor to turn the blending end of the device, resulting in a finely-processed whip. As with other handheld blenders, the Cuisinart CSB-76 offers simple, one-touch operation. You only need to grip the upper part of the SmartStick blender securely, with the blend/pulse button falling well within the reach of your fingers. Press the button one time for pulsing, and hold it down for more thorough blending. The body of the SmartStick CSB-76 blender is contoured to give you a more stable grip. One of the strengths of the Cuisinart CSB-76 SmartStick Immersion Hand Blender is, as mentioned, its detachable blending part. You can, given its metal construction, drop it easily in the dishwasher to clean up quickly after preparing food items. Unfortunately, the convenience that this feature offers also seems like the SmartStickâs biggest flaw; the blending tip attaches to the blender through a plastic coupling gear that will have a shorter lifespan than a metal one. Another issue that comes up is that the power of the motor inside the CSB-76 may be a bit too much for people with weak hands when it comes to blending thick mixtures. The second issue may not be a big one though, especially in light of the prior one with the plastic coupling gear.
