Cuisinart Smart Stick PLUS Review

The Cuisinart Smart Stick PLUS Cordless Rechargeable Hand Blender ($79.95) is a versatile kitchen tool that allows you to take the blender to the food, no matter where the food is located. Transferring hot soup back and forth into a typical blender can be a dangerous and difficult task. The Smart Stick PLUS allows you to take the mixing wand right to your stock pot and puree easily without the hassle of cords getting in the way. The blender is attractive and has a contemporary look, with its brushed stainless steel base and comfort grip black handle. It is both sturdy and well made, and offers a powerful DC motor for even the most challenging chopping or pureeing tasks. The hand blender has 3 pieces to its design: the handle, the motor body, and the detachable shaft.  The power plug is ingeniously hidden in the handle, and can be slid out to easily plug into an outlet for fast charging. Once fully charged, the hand blender can run continuously for up to 20 minutes, by simply pushing the on-off button located on the top of the handle. The Smart Stick PLUS is much more than a hand blender. It comes complete with a Chopper / Grinder Attachment, which is a small mixing bowl that attaches to the wand and becomes a mini food processor. Inside the prep bowl, there is a reversible blade with a sharp side and a blunt side.  The sharp side can be used for such items as herbs or onions, while the blunt side can be used for items such as hard cheeses or nuts.  In addition to the Chopper / Grinder Attachment, there is also a Whisk Attachment that easily snaps into the motor body.  Perfect for whisking up the perfect omelets or making fresh whipping cream by hand. Also included in the set is a handy Mixing / Measuring Cup.  This dishwasher safe container allows you to view the precise measurements for mixing up your favorite vinaigrette dressing or protein shake. The folks at Cuisinart have thought of everything, they have also included a storage stand that can be used as a counter top holder or comes complete with mounting hardware to free up your counter-space. If you have never tried using a hand blender, you might consider adding this versatile piece of equipment to your kitchen. After making fresh salsa and pesto easily from scratch, you’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without one before. (Reviewed by Meredith Fire-Hess)

    Would the chopper work for chopping vegtables for salads?

    Hi Shari, I think that the Smart Stick PLUS is geared more towards chopping and pureeing. However, Cuisinart makes wonderful Food Processors that have many attachments for slicing veg for salads.
