Rated 1 out of 5Â by tarynmichelle Do not buy!
I bought this blender last year, and I expected it to be a great product with it being made by Cuisinart. The one my mom has from them has been working great for many years, so that's what made me choose this one. However, I used it maybe 5 times and then it just stopped. I can't get it to do anything. So, now I have to go buy another blender since the warranty is up, and sadly, it probably won't be one made by Cuisinart.

I read the reviews, but ... it was on sale and I liked the blender/food processor design. In theory, the idea to have one base for both functions is good. Unfortunately, the "made in China" motor is cheap. Was only able to use the blender prudently a few times in 1 week before it seized-up and died. Never even got to use the food processor part. Fortunately, Kohl's has the best prices, sales, and returns department and they took it right back. I will continue to shop at Kohl's. But unfortunately the quality of Cuisinart appliances has deteriorated over the years and are no where near worth what you pay for them. Don't waste your time and money.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MinnieT Good product
I bought this product in white colors for over ten years and it still works great as the first day. This product only 500w so I use it with care (2-3 times a week). I use the Food Processor to crush ice before put ice into the blender to make smoothies. In the other ways to make smoothies, I pour juice or milk and a little frozen fruit first, then turn the machine on. After that I drop a little by little more frozen fruit through the cap of the lid until I get the consistency I want. The only problem I had that I broke the lock from the cap of the food processor but it still work if I hold the cap right position. This product is good to spend money on.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MrsSutton I use it nearly every day
I like the product but the food processor is plastic and mine broke. No worries though, although it has been more than a year, I took it back to Kohls and they exchanged it for a new one. This is the second one I have taken back. About 1 week shy of a year, the motor went out. I took it back to kohls and they exchanged it straight across for another. Yay!! Less than a year, the food processor part cracked and was leaking. So, I took it back and exchanged it. I've had this one for approx. two years and it works fabulously! I love it and use it nearly daily
