Cuisinart Smart Power Premier 600-Watt Blender CBT-500


The very user-friendly Cuisinart Smart Power Premier 600-Watt Blender CBT-500 is excellent at blending, is dishwasher-safe, and comes with handy extras like a built-in digital timer. In brushed metal/stainless steel.

Burned out after less than 1 minute of use


I had this model and loved it in general. Unfortunately I dropped and broke the glass beaker so ordered the refurbished version to replace it. I used it and it literally burned out after less than 1 minute of use. Smoke and all! Be ware.

Excellent blender, but refurb is so-so


Not sure why the previous reviewer says the blender shakes - it's one of the heaviest blenders out there - maybe they got a bad unit? The refurbished quality is almost perfect except the control panel plate is poorly attached (it hasn't come off, just...

Do not buy!


I bought this blender to replace an old one that I have had for many years. This one didn't work any better. I am returning it and going back to using my old one. This Cuisinart is loud and doesn't blend without shaking the whole unit.

Great blender


This blender is an excellent product as I have found most of Cuisinart's products. It easily crushes ice and blends with power and precision. Also easy to clean and disassemble!! Always a plus

Ice Crusher


I purchase Cuisinart blenders because the ice crusher function works just the way I want. This is my third - I use the blender a lot and the motors eventually fail. This time I went for the higher powered motor and hope it will last longer. This is...

Works OK


This blender works OK, but has some problems. The plastic gasket slips when assembled without very close attention. Thus encouraging less washing due to the need to closely monitor the re-assembly of the machine after using and washing parts. If the...

Looks cool and the idea is good, too bad execution is poor as the coffee is weak and cold. This is my second cuisinart appliance that has disappointed


I waited a long time and bought the stainless version with the thermal carafe. I was so disappointed in the product. It wastes coffee beans as the grind is too large and the coffee comes out cold and weak. Cleaning it is a major chore, it needs to be...

Looks ; Maybe branding if you're into that

Everything else ; Wastes coffee beans ; Coffee is weak and cold ; Cleaning half a dozen parts after every brew is a chore
