INTRODUCTION
This Cuisinart® Smart Stick Hand Blender is designed to handle a variety
of basic tasks, like blending, mixing, chopping, grinding, whipping,
pureeing – even processing bread crumbs – to give you time for more
creative culinary undertakings! Elegant brushed stainless steel houses a
powerful motor, and the handy “stick” design lets you blend in a pot, bowl,
or pitcher. Operation is easy and cleanup is quick. What could be better?
UNPACKING INSTRUCTIONS
Place the package containing the Cuisinart® Smart Stick Hand Blender on
a sturdy surface. Unpack the Smart Stick Hand Blender from its box by
removing the upper protective insert. Gently slide the unit from the box.
Remove all support materials from the box and replace the upper insert.
Save packaging for possible repacking of the unit.
Note: The blending blade is extremely sharp. Use caution when
removing and unpacking the storage stand. The blending blade is
stored in the storage stand.
Before using the Cuisinart® Smart Stick Hand Blender for the first time, we
recommend that you wipe the unit with a clean, damp cloth to remove any
dirt or dust. Dry it thoroughly with a soft absorbent cloth. Handle
carefully; wash each individual blade attachment, mixing container and
detachable shaft by hand or in the dishwasher. Dry thoroughly before use.
Read all instructions completely for detailed operating procedures.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
1. One Touch On/Off Button: Allows you to activate the hand
blender at the touch of a button. Simply press and hold down on the
toggle switch to blend or pulse. Once the button is released, blending
will stop.
2. Comfort Handle: The handle allows you to control the hand blender
with ease.
3. Motor Body Housing
4. Detachable Shaft: By pressing the release button on the back of the
unit, the shaft will detach for easy cleaning.
5. Blending Attachment with Stainless Steel Blade and Blade
Guard: This attachment easily snaps into the motor body housing.
The stainless blade is partially covered by a stainless housing that
keeps splashing to a minimum.
6. Whisk Attachment: Whisk attachment snaps into the motor body
housing. This attachment is great for whipping cream, egg whites
and other delectable treats.
4
7. Chopper/Grinder Attachment: Chop, mince and grind with
the Cuisinart® Chopper/Grinder attachment. Chopper/Grinder
attaches to the blender motor body in place of the blender shaft or
whisk attachment.
8. Mixing Beaker: 2-cup mixing beaker is microwave- and dishwasher
safe. Use this container to blend drinks, shakes, salad dressings and
more. Designed for easy gripping and drip-free pouring.
TIPS AND HINTS
1. Liquid should come within an inch of where the shaft attaches to the
motor housing.
2. Some spices may scratch the chopper/grinder attachment.
3. When using with a nonstick cooking surface, be careful not to scratch
the coating with the hand blender.
4. Do not immerse motor body housing, chopper/grinder cover, or whisk
gearbox in water or any other liquid.
5. Cut most solid foods into 13mm cubes for easy blending. Suggestion:
use chopper/grinder for chopping and grinding solid foods.
6. Pour liquid ingredients into the mixing container first, unless recipe
instructs otherwise.
7. To avoid splashing, don’t turn the hand blender on until the blade is
beneath the surface of the mixture and do not pull the hand blender
out of the mixture while blender is running.
8. Do not let hand blender stand in a hot pot on stove while not in use.
9. Do not put fruit pits, bones, or other hard material into the blending
mixture, as these are liable to damage the blades.
10. Do not fill mixing containers too full. The level of mixture will rise when
blending, and can overflow.
11. Adding liquids that are warm, not cold, facilitates blending solids
with liquids.
12. For recipes calling for ice, use crushed ice (not whole cubes) for
best results.
13. Using a gentle up-and-down motion is the best way to blend and
incorporate ingredients uniformly.
14. To avoid spatter, turn the hand blender off and let the blade stop
completely before lifting the unit out of the mixture you are processing.
15. To whip air into a mixture, always hold the blade just under
the surface.
16. To make a soup creamy in texture, use the hand blender to purée
the soup solids to the desired consistency using a gentle up-and-down
5
motion right in the saucepan. You can quickly change your soup into a
thick and creamy blend.
17. If you are making a dip or spread, it is not necessary to process
completely into a smooth purée; leave some texture for interest.
18. When making compound butters, remove the butter from the
refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before blending
the ingredients.
19. The hand blender is perfect for frothing milk for cappuccino or lattes.
20. Use the hand blender to make smooth gravies and pan sauces.
21. For best results when adding celery to a recipe, use a vegetable
peeler to remove tough outer strings from the celery before slicing.
WHISK TIPS
Use the whisk attachment for beating heavy cream or egg whites. It may
also be used for whisking eggs for scrambled eggs or fluffy omelettes.
BEATING EGG WHITES
When beating egg whites use a very clean metal or glass bowl, never
plastic. Plastic can contain hidden oils and fats that can ruin the delicate
egg white foam. To help stabilize the egg whites add 1/8 teaspoon of
cream of tartar per egg white prior to beating them. (If using a copper
bowl omit the cream of tartar). Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form
that do not droop over. Beating the egg whites longer causes them to dry
out and become even less stable. When adding sugar to beaten egg
whites add it slowly when soft peaks just begin to form and then continue
beating to form soft peaks that don’t droop over.
BEATING HEAVY CREAM
When beating heavy cream, if possible and time allows, use a chilled
bowl, and chill the whisk attachment. The best shaped bowl for whipping
cream is one that is deep with a rounded bottom. The cream should come
out of the refrigerator just before whipping. Hold the Whip attachment so
that it is just skimming the surface, and whip until the cream begins
to thicken and develop some body; then immerse the whisk totally into
the cream. Whipped cream may be used at either soft or firm peaks
depending on preference. It may be flavoured as desired. For best
results, whip cream just before using.

REVERSIBLE BLADE
The Cuisinart® Smart Stick Hand Blender chopper/grinder attachment is
equipped with a reversible blade. This blade is sharp on one side and
blunt on the other. The blade is attached to a plastic ring which slides
over the blade assembly shaft, so it can be easily turned over to select
the appropriate blade. A guide for proper blade selection follows in the
section, Frequent Uses for Chopper/Grinder (page 15.)
Before you process any food, assemble the parts.
1. Place the prep bowl on a flat, dry, stable surface. It should be close to
an electrical outlet of the same voltage as stated on the rating plate on
the Smart Stick Hand Blender.
2. The metal blade assembly shaft is attached to the bottom of the prep
bowl. If not already in place, slide the fully assembled blade assembly
over the top of the blade assembly shaft.
2a. Putting together the blade assembly:
Connect the blade ring (F) to the plastic blade sheath (G). Line up the
blade ring opening with the plastic sheath. Let the blade ring slide to
the bottom of the plastic sheath. HOLD THE BLADE RING BY THE
CENTRAL HUB HOLDING RIBS (grips)(K) ONLY. DO NOT TOUCH
THE RAZOR-SHARP BLADES.

Note these important features of the blade ring. The blade ring can be
placed over the plastic blade sheath in two different ways:
If you hold it this way (A), you will see the word “Sharp” on the blade.
Assemble the blade this side up to use the sharp edge. (see the section
on processing food for information about when to use the sharp edge.)

If you hold it this way (B), you will see no writing on the blade.
Assemble the blade this side up to use the blunt edge.
(See the section on processing food, for information about when
B.
to use the blunt edge.)
BLUNT SIDE UP
9
There are notches (C) on opposite sides of the interior of the hub.
These fit over ridges on the sides of the plastic blade sheath.
C.
NOTCH
Pick up the blade ring by its hub holding ribs (grips) and line up the
notches in the interior of the blade ring hub with the ridges on the sides
of the plastic blade sheath. Let the blade ring slide down to the bottom
of the plastic blade sheath. The lower blade should almost touch the
bottom of the prep bowl.
Lift the prep bowl, holding it firmly from the bottom. Pick up the blade
ring by its hub holding ribs (grips) and turn it very slightly clockwise.
This locks it in place on the plastic blade sheath and prevents it from
sliding up during processing.
3. Connect the Smart Stick Hand Blender
motor body to the top of the
chopper/grinder attachment cover.
Align the spine in the chopper/grinder
cover’s drive shaft with the ribbed
opening on the underside of the motor
body. When aligned properly, slide the
two pieces together until they meet.
You will feel and hear a slight click.
It may be helpful to press the rubber
release button when sliding these
pieces together.

4. With the hand blender in place,
locate the chopper/grinder cover
and place it on top of the prep bowl.
4a. Be sure that the 3 ridges at the top of the blade assembly
line up with the 3-arm propeller gear in the underside of the
chopper/grinder cover, and that the cover is seated all around the
top of the prep bowl.
4b. To properly seat the cover, you must line up the three molded
pins from the cover with the 3 slots at the top of the prep bowl.
Rotate cover counterclockwise to secure it to the prep bowl.
Rotate the cover until the pins are in the far left position in
the slots.

until ingredients are well combined, about 40-50 seconds. Season with
salt, pepper and basil. Stir in cream if using.
While soup is cooking bring 2 cups of water to boil. Add the asparagus
tips and cook for 2 minutes until bright green. Drain and immediately
plunge into an ice-water bath to stop cooking.
