Cleaning the unit is simple; just make sure a dish brush is located nearby. The 16-ounce to go cups are a bit narrow so getting a hand inside to clean them is impossible, but a dish brush works wonderfully. If the four cups that come with the blender are not enough more cups and lids can be ordered from Cuisinart.
- Various Safety Features – One thing that I love about this blender is the various safety features that it comes with. One of the best ones is the auto-stop feature that automatically turns off the blender if the motor starts to overheat due to the blender being overloaded. There is also a standby mode and a safety interlock feature.
- 3 Different Controls – This blender comes with two speed settings, high and low, but also comes equipped with a pulse setting. To properly use the blender the pulse setting should be used until all big chunks of products are broken up, only after that should high or low be used.
- 32 Ounce Blender Cup – The blender comes with a 32-ounce blender cup that allows users to make one large batch for the entire family, but also comes with four 16-ounce cups that can be used to make individual items for the family. I love how the 16 ounce cups and the 32-ounce jar all fit on the same base.
- Chopper Cup – This blender is more than just a blender the chopper cup can be used to chop up a variety of things. My favorite thing is to use the chopper cup to chop up fresh herbs out of my garden, but it can also be used to chop up nuts for my favorite cookie recipes.
- To go lids aren’t fully sealed – The only issue I have with this blender is that the lids that fit onto the to go cups aren’t fully sealed. Each lid has a small opening so a person can drink their smoothie while driving or sitting in an office. This can be problematic because the cup cannot be tossed in a bag or turned upside down, so it is not a true travel cup.
The Cuisinart CPB-300 is not only easy to clean; it is also very easy to use. The blender measures 10.1 x 15.8 x 10 inches, so it will easy store inside any kitchen cupboard. The blender will also look nice on any countertop due to its stainless steel design; the entire front panel is stainless steel giving it that sleek look.
