Overall Design Scoring

At first, we were mightily impressed with the blending shaft's unique design, but its disappointing testing results then diminished our excitement. Sure enough, the UTALENT’s distinctive design doesn’t make it any more effective or easier to use.

This Cuisinart is a well-priced device to suit the needs of many users, though there are some limitations in its overall design that entirely dissatisfied us. Like most immersion blenders, it can only run for a limited amount of time (60 seconds) before needing a break to prevent its motor overheating.


Ease of Use
Blade Assembly
Overall Usability Scoring

As mentioned above, the UTALENT is quite complicated to use and cannot ensure smooth operation. More to the point, it lacks a few nice features that we like about some other more user-friendly models.

Cuisinart packs its blender with many unique features to create the most enjoyable blending experience for the users, and we appreciate this effort. However, none of its things really impress us, with the exception of the blender’s cleanability.

Overall Performance Scoring

The UTALENT didn’t perform as well as other blenders we’ve tested. Although it includes all the standard features of a decent hand blender, it still couldn’t blend evenly or cleanly. It is also worth noting that during our testing, we encountered a great deal of frustration with its operation.

As a mid-powered blender, the Cuisinart Smart Stick is designed for certain kinds of blended drinks, including cocktails, milkshakes, and fresh fruit smoothies. It can even handle thicker blends such as hummus or sorbet without too much trouble.

Pros & Cons

  • It’s inexpensive.
  • Its milk frother can make milk foam.
  • We got extra blending tools in one set.
  • All the attachments are dishwasher safe.
  • Powerful enough for a wide range of tasks
  • The ergonomically-designed handle makes the blender easier to maneuver  
  • The included 24-oz beaker allows for easy gripping and drip-free pouring
  • The release button is really helpful during assembly and disassembly  
  • The specially designed blade can be used to emulsify sauces
  • It works inconsistently. 
  • The motor power is low rating. 
  • It isn’t effective at blending solid foods.
  • The stainless steel blending shaft will damage non-stick coatings
  • Fairly complicated to use
  • The blade guard doesn’t prevent splashing very well


The Cuisinart CSB-175 offers better value than some of its rivals in the same price range and its affordability makes it a good starting point if you’re new to the blending world.

Compared with the UTALENT, it has fewer speed options, but this doesn’t influence its overall efficiency. 

Of all its tests, it was only challenged by the beaten egg whites recipe due to the lack of a whisk attachment. The other remaining tests, including soup-making, smoothie-blending, nut-grinding, and mayonnaise-emulsifying, were finished pretty impressively. 

The UTALENT, on the other hand, churned out less efficient results, and we also found it quite uncomfortable to use. The only advantage of this blender over the Cuisinart is its accessory package.
