CUISINART IS BRINGING TO THE TABLE …

SmartPower® Compact Portable Blending/Chopping System

Food for Thought:

Beyond Blending – Cuisinart Introduces Portability and Increases Efficiency in the Kitchen

In today’s fast-paced society, consumers are willing to spend their money on ready-made smoothies, jarred salsas, pre-made shakes and blended cocktails simply because there is no time to make them at home. Cuisinart, however, is changing the status quo once again, by introducing the SmartPower® Compact Portable Blending/Chopping System (model no. CPB-300). This new blending/chopping system is a sleek and powerful product that does it all.  Spices and herbs can be minced in seconds in the 8-oz. chopping cup, and custom drinks, smoothies and almost anything else can be quickly prepared in the streamlined, 32-oz. blender jar or directly in any of the unit’s four 16-oz. travel cups.  This allows consumers to take smoothies to the gym, iced beverages to the pool and even baby food on a trip.  The unit combines power and simplicity with its single-hand operation, electronic touchpad with LED indicator lights and 350-watt motor.  Additionally, new bisphenol A (BPA)-free Tritan™ from Eastman co-polyester is used for all the vessels: blender jar, chopping cup and travel cups.

What to Look for When Purchasing a Blender:

Design:

Cuisinart’s new blending/chopping system is specially designed for portability, ease of use and the ability to perform multiple functions.  Equipped with a Standby mode, safety interlock and auto stop features, the unit marries the performance of a larger blender with the convenience of a single-serve blender.  Because of these features and its four travel cups, lightweight blender jar, chopping cup and two high-quality blade assemblies, the SmartPower® Compact Portable Blending/Chopping System is designed to fit, and go, almost anywhere.

Additionally, the blending/chopping system reduces countertop clutter, thanks to its sleek profile and the cord storage compartment at its base. The underside of the unit also features a slip resistant material that prevents it from moving or leaving marks on the table or counter.

Performance:

The SmartPower® Compact Portable Blending/Chopping System features Cuisinart’s patented ultra sharp stainless steel blades, along with a 350-watt motor that combine to give consumers all the power needed to make any liquid sensation in a snap.  This lightweight, versatile blender features three settings: high, low and pulse, to allow home cooks to quickly liquefy complex smoothies, homemade purees and shakes, or to chop flax seeds for smoothies or crush ice for mixed drinks. The unit’s versatile design is ideal for travel-ready beverages to take in the car or for lounging in the backyard with friends and family.

Convenience:

Cuisinart’s do-it-all blending/chopping system can be easily operated with one hand, and its touchpad design features three buttons that are equipped with easy-to-see blue LED lights that show home cooks the speed at which the unit is operating.  In addition to its simple yet powerful and versatile design, all removable parts and containers are dishwasher safe.
