Not bad if you are into metal shavings and flying blades
This is my Cuisinart Sucks story:: A few years back I bought the CUISINART SMARTPOWER PREMIER BLENDER, Model #CBT500/CBT500C. I can say In the few years I've owned it that it has been used no more than 40 times. I decided to use it yesterday to mix a cocoa drink and heard I very loud grinding sound. After pouring out the drink I looked underneath the solution holder and found that the nut holding the bolt to the blade was not there. There was also a large amount of metal shaving sitting on top of the motorized assembly. What in the world happened! It's not like I used it a few hundred times and things started to wear away. Plus this situation was potentially very dangerous, with a blade spinning at a high RPM could have come up the shaft and slammed into the glass cup area. I called CUISINART, they asked for my first name and wanted to sell me a new blade. What kind of company is this anyway? I'll never buy any of their products ever again. MADE IN CHINA, that tells me a lot.
