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.

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.
