Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender
Man, oh man, was I ever in need of a stick blender for a cheesecake pie.
I went old school before purchasing my hand blender and used my regular Vitamix blender. It worked like a dream, but clean-up is messier than the Cuisinart immersion hand blender.
After the first use, I slapped my forehead in a D’OH! moment.

Immersion Blender Uses
My stick blender’s inaugural use came when I was making Cream of Broccoli soup (this Veggie Soup is good too!). After throwing in the allotted amounts of veggies (broccoli/carrots/celery/garlic), I let them cook until tender, then plunged my stick blender into the pot (off the stove, naturally).
This baby has some power to it, so make sure you keep it in an upright position when blending things, especially hot burny things!
It made quick work of pulverizing the veggies, blending everything perfectly. The best part was I ended up omitting the cream portion of the recipe because of the fabulous consistency and thickness of the blended veggies. Bonus!
More Cuisinart Hand Mixer Uses
- Cake batter
- Waffle/Pancake batter
- Whipped Cream (with special attachment)
- Marinade/ Salad Dressing
- Hummus (oner of my favs)
- Refried Beans
The options are endless and I’d love to know what you use yours for.
Stick Blender For The Win
I still can’t believe it has took me this long to use a stick blender. Old dog = learnin’ new tricks.
I haven’t used the container to whisk anything yet, but when I do, I’ll let you know how that goes. I’m thinking a small batch of whipped cream for waffles.
If you haven’t used one yet, don’t wait as long as I did.
If you enjoyed this post, here are recipes the Cuisinart Immersion blender will work with:
Best Cake Filling
Goodness. This cake filling is one of the easiest you’ll find. And the one you’ll want to eat straight from the mixing bowl (yes, yes, I have!)
This zucchini bread is perfection. It’s light and addictive. Yummy enough for both adults and kiddos.
Banana Bread Pancakes
These pancakes have been grandkiddo tested and approved! The taste of banana bread in a pancake – genius!
A easy breakfast hack is that these pancakes can be made ahead and frozen – or kept in fridge – for a fast, grab and go breakfast.
As you can see – so many uses for a Cuisinart smart stick hand blender (or any hand blender you love).
Let me know how you use yours in the comments.
Happy blending, y’all!

I have a confession to make...I have one of these, and I've never used it. Isn't that horrible? I love to cook and soup is one of our favorites, you've pushed me into getting it out and charging it up and actually using it!
My advice to anyone reading this...get one of these babies, use it! They are awesome! We use them in the restaurants that I've worked in and they are incredible!
