It proved a junk for me. I do not have cuisinart blender. I have cuisinart ice cream machine with freezer that is working great.

I also own a Cuisinart Smart Power Duet, and while it is beautiful (Chrome) on display, it does not to the same quality of my Ninja: puree, crush ice, and it is a lot louder in operation.
To be fair, the Duet, also has a Food Processor Base (which I use, the blender I no longer use) will slice, shred. Therefore if you are interested in making chopped salads, home fries/scalloped/hash brown potatoes, uniform veggies, or home Pizza toppings, you will still require a Food Processor.
My Ninja, has made Salsa, Coffee Drinks, Cocktails, Shakes, even Quiches, to absolute gourmet perfection.

It is very simple to use, not really heavy or bulky, and in my opinion light years ahead of other more expensive blenders. I bought the Ninja over the Cuisinart after balancing my personal needs. Please remember everyone is different and what works for me may not work for you. You be the judge based on your needs. They are both excellent products.

For chopping and mincing it is far superior to any other food processor or blender--I have cooked professionally for years and just recently invested in first one Ninja and then 4 more--they are the way to go--but if you need to shred cheeze or cabbage or potatoes or slice then you would want a mandolin (my choice) or cuisinart--actually, for the money you absolutely cannot beat the Ninja--I make one thing right after another, the clean up is very quick and easy so that you can switch to another food item for prep--but I never put it in the dishwasher, ever!--I make instant salsa, maranades, salad dressings, grind chicken thighs for chicken patties, combine several herbs and whip them up for combo herb rubs and seasonings and I could go on and on forever! As an owner of 5 I advise you to Buy one--you will not be sorry!
