Giveaway – Cuisinart Smart-Stick Hand Blender
Before I had the Cuisinart Hand Blender, when puréeing soups I would then have to use a ladle to transfer the chunky soup (often hot) into a stand blender. I disliked this for 2 reasons:
- I had to clean another container – UGH!
- I had to be careful that the liquid wouldn’t explode out of the top of the blender since it was hot. I was always careful though and put a towel over the lid just in case it came bursting out.
Once puréed , simply remove the blender from the pot, separate the blender attachment, wash and store. That’s it! Then I’m ready for my soup.
A favorite is my Butternut Squash soup for recipe view here.
You can also blend ingredients directly in pitchers, bowls, or the clear plastic beaker that’s included with the blender. For something so small it has a powerful 200-watt motor that operates with an easy one-touch control. It blends drinks, purées soup, mixes pancake and crêpe batters in seconds! Plus you can put both the stainless steel blending shaft and beaker in the dishwasher! What could be easier?
This giveaway will be conducted through Rafflecopter. Just follow the prompts below and the rest is simple.

Such a great idea! I really only got into soups last year, and I was using my food processor to puree but it’s a maaaajor hassle. I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a hand blender for so long, thanks for the giveaway 🙂
They’re great for soups, smoothies even jams as Noelia mentioned. Good luck!

An immersion blender is a must in any kitchen! I love mine but it is starting to get old. 🙂 I blend soup, sauces, smoothies – chop, whip. What a great tool! thanks for the opportunity to win one!
You’re welcome. Thank you for your comments
I could really use of these. I use them so much that I am ready for a third one…
Wow you must use them a lot. I use mine as well but it hasn’t worn out. Good luck. Thank you for your comments.
Aren’t hand blenders the best? I use mine all the time for soups. I already have one (so don’t enter me in the giveaway) but this is really a terrific gift.
I agree. You could have entered the Rafflecopter and in case you won you could have given it for a gift. In any case thank you for your comments.
This is one of the best kitchen tool inventions, ever!
I agree. I wish I’d created it.
Love your beautiful autumn soup! I have the immersion blender so hope someone will win this. It’s the best kitchen gadget in this season and you have a great giveaway just in the right time!
(p.s. Sorry about the earlier comment. =P)
I love it too. I should have mentioned this is a great holiday gift even if you already have one. Not everyone in my family has one so if I was entering I’d be thrilled to gift one to them. You may want to reconsider the Rafflecopter and enter for a gift.
to make mashed potatoes!! 🙂
I would give it as a gift.
I love my immersion blender and have had it for 22 years and it still does wonders. I would probably give it as a gift since I have one. Your soup looks great and I love soup too.
for just about anything…pancakes,smoothies
I just recently bought a Cuisinart immersion blender and I love it. I use it to make soups, pancakes, smoothies, etc. It works so much better than a blender on many things I make. If I won, I’d definitely give this as a gift to one of my friends.
I would use the immersion blender for soups and sauces. I have an old one that I’ve used to death and have loved it but it’s on it’s last legs 🙂
Maybe I could make gravy that would not be lumpy if I used this. 🙂
Hi Vicki! I emailed you my info, let me know if you didn’t receive it! 🙂
I couldn’t agree more. A nice puréed souplike this is a real treat when the temperatures dip.
