Overall Design Scoring

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.

The Chefman 6-in-1 has a hard plastic body, giving it a light, balanced weight. All the parts are designed well for the price, but they don't look really opulent. They have much in common with other blenders in this price range, so nothing in particular makes this one stand out.

Overall Usability Scoring

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.

The balanced weight and simple controls make this blender a breeze to use, and its ergonomically-designed handle means that it’ll fit comfortably in your palm. Sometimes it’s difficult to maneuver, though, since it can create quite a bit of suction at the bottom of the container.

Overall Performance Scoring

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.

The Chefman 6-in-1 worked great for beating eggs and emulsifying mayonnaise. We wish we could say the same when it came to preparing frozen fruit smoothies, puréeing leafy greens, and grinding nuts; it was very mediocre in those tests. For a broader spectrum of blending tasks, we recommend considering other higher-powered blenders.

Pros & Cons

  • 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 can blend frozen fruits, chop vegetables, emulsify sauces, and beat eggs.
  • The motor runs quietly.
  • Its accessory package includes many helpful pieces.
  • The ergonomically-designed handle provides a comfortable grip.
  • The stainless steel blending shaft will damage non-stick coatings
  • Fairly complicated to use
  • The blade guard doesn’t prevent splashing very well
  • The metal blending shaft and whisk damaged our cookware’s surface.


Unless you want extra blending attachments for a wider range of tasks, the Cuisinart Smart Stick is our recommendation. 

In our hands-on testing, this blender was among the best at preparing smoothies, mayonnaise, pureéd soup, and almond milk. Even when it couldn’t pass the test of beating egg whites, it still placed high in our rankings. 

The Chefman 5-in-1, on the other hand, is built for smooth and powerful blending, but in that respect, it does not hit the mark. While it performed slightly above average in every test, the results were somewhat mediocre for the segment. On the bright side, it comes with plenty of extra accessories, which you won’t find in the Cuisinart Smart Stick.

In terms of build, the Cuisinart’s design has nothing preeminent, if not a little bit fussy with an unnecessary locking mechanism. Compared with the Chefman 5-in-1, however, it uses higher-quality materials in some areas so it feels and looks more expensive.
