Bought this food processor/blender combo thinking it would be a highly versatile appliance. My husband and I have used it far less than we anticipated- the food processor attachment is a little too small to do much except a sauce, and the blender has a very difficult time making smoothies with frozen fruit or crushing ice- when we try to blend anything frozen, the unit emits a burning smell as if the motor is working too hard- if the motor can't handle frozen foods or ice, there should not be a "crush ice" option, but I digress . . .
What has been really frustrating, is that the blade unit for the blender has cracked twice, causing whatever we are blending to leak all over the place. The first time the piece cracked, Cuisinart replaced the part even though the blender was out of warranty, which I appreciated. Now it has happened again, and Cuisinart wants me to spend $20 (including S & H) to replace a twice-faulty piece. I understand that the blender is out of warranty, but given that the blade has failed twice, I would expect Cuisinart to stand behind their product- or at least waive the S & H! I paid $80 when we first purchased the blender- why would I spend 25% of the original price to replace something that has failed twice?! If the blade unit had honestly cracked due to wear and tear, I would gladly pay for the replacement piece, but we have used it so little (we've been a little afraid to given how fragile it has been) I am more than a little frustrated that Cuisinart will not replace what is a fundamentally flawed part. We are taking the $20 Cuisinart wants us to spend and putting it towards a new blender from a different manufacturer, probably KitchenAid. They have lost my business!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Identical
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor!
I have owned a Cuisinart Duet food processor/ blender combo for at least ten years. I dropped and broke the glass blender container several years ago but continued to use the food processor almost daily. After much use and abuse it finally gave out so I purchased another. I was pleased with the price and prompt shipping from Overstock.com.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Correct
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well made
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Correct
I comparison shopped and Overstock had the best price for this product. The appliance is "reconditioned" but arrived in a new, unopened box and in like-new condition. It's compact in size but does the job of a full size food processor other than the bowl being slightly smaller. I was able to eliminate my blender as this is a combination appliance.
Bought this item refurbished from another website. I immediately had to go online to Cuisinart to purchase a new locking lid for the food processor attachment because the one it came with didn't screw on right, it would go on so tight that it was impossible to remove. Likewise, the blade attachment never sat right in the center and I had to almost force it in. Food processor parts were very difficult to disassemble to clean, very hard to get the blade out. It looked like the center hole in the food cup was misshapen, whether that was the way it was shipped or it got that way in the top rack of the dishwasher, I don't know, but it was a waste of money. Meh as a blender.
i think the last question was is this product brand new vs being a refurbished model which means it was repaired when it failed and is being resold.
my question is what is the mfr warranty - how long? and please, whether this is made is china? where is the country of mfr please?fireylotus on Jan 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
