This smooth little baby is a fabulous smoothie and sauce/dressing blender par excellence! The L’Equip blender is small, ergonomic, and powerful! I compared it with my Cuisinart Smartpower Premium blender, Model CB-600 only for the purpose of this review.
As you can see from the pictures, I began with an equal amount of fresh fruit in order to see how my blender compared to the L’Equip. I use my blender only for smoothies and dessert sauces and to make homemade mayonnaise and sauces and dressings for salad. So I have to say that my Cuisinart also performs chopping, pulse and other features that regular blenders perform. So the comparison is not apples to apples, but I wanted to see how the L’Equip fared on smoothies against my chug a lug blender, the Cuisinart.
The L’Equip comes with a lightweight plastic pitcher and cleaned up in seconds. My Cuisinart pitcher is heavy glass, and fruit always gets under the casing, so I have to remove the stand and the blades and casing to clean after every use, a five minute task I would rather not have to perform!
The L’Equip is so fast on the draw – one hit of the ON button, seconds later perfect smoothie – that I had to say a sad goodbye to my trust ole Cuisinart. Just as an aside, the L’Equip does not have the ability to pulse, nor crush, and if you are chopping, this is not the blender that you need. However, since I hand slice tomatoes for salsa, etc., I didn’t care!
