Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Icy drinks performance was excellent. Puree performance was excellent. Ice Crush performance was very good.
Fantastic smoothies, great at crushing ice, silky-smooth purees
The Cuisinart gave us better results than we expected from even our local smoothie shops, completely chopping kale into microscopic bits. It also crushed ice and successfully powdered almonds and oats — outperforming even the formidable Vitamix in the blueberry almond oatmeal challenge. We particularly liked the Cuisinart’s churning power. Unlike many blenders, there were no hiding spots for powder to get stuck in, so our smoothies got their full protein-punch without any surprise pockets of dust.
The flat controls are easy to wipe down for maintenance.

What reviewers didn't like

This model had no discernible flaws in its performance.
Blade showed signs of wear and tear
While it wasn’t the loudest blender we tested (that prize went to the Blendtec), we weren’t overly fond of the Cuisinart’s slightly shrill tone. It’s not a dealbreaker by any means, but it may be annoying to hear every morning.
Other machines are better at crushing ice.
The Cuisinart Hurricane Pro is by no means a bad blender, but with a price point that’s on par with our Best Overall winner, this machine looks mediocre in comparison.
