Ruined our dinner party,
This review is from: Cuisinart CSB-79C Smart Stick Hand Blender with Whisk & Chopper Attachment (Kitchen)
The item was delivered promptly and looked good.
It was used twice as a wisk, twice as a blender and twice as a chopper. The third time my wife planned a dinner party and bought expensive ingredients. BUT when she tried to use the chopper, the motor just spun without turning the blade.
The three tools snap into the motor unit, and the connection failed between motor and tool. It consists of a rubber O-ring around the shaft of the tool which mates with a nylon sleeve on the motor unit. After only six uses, the O-ring spun off the shaft and stuck in the nylon sleeve. I removed the O-ring from the sleeve but the other tools will no longer work - they spin slowly but stop wehn they encounter the slightest resistance.
Our disapointment was compounded by being out of the 30 day Amazon return period - $106 divided by 6 uses = 6 very expensive meals.
