    I have a separate blender and food processor, and I’m really glad I do.  My mum had a combo (not the one you have, though) and it was just never stellar.  We have a KitchenAid blender and it’s been wonderful, and I have a KitchenAid food processor (12-Cup with a mini bowl) and it is fabulous.

    In terms of space, you definitely take a hit, but having specialized machines seems to mean the machines work better. I’d rather sacrifice the space and have ones I know work well. Maybe that’s just me!

    I will say, I don’t know anything about the Cuisinart combo, so it might be a much better product than the one I grew up with, but I can’t say anything negative about my KitchenAid blender & fp.

    It’ll all depend on what you are looking to do.

    We own a Ninja Blender/Food Processor combo. I use it more than I do my bleender, but it chops ice better (and we like to drink). I also own a blender, which I don’t use as often, but it has come in handy a few times.

    If I had to pick, I think I’d keep my Ninja over the blender. Ours has two pieces – a larger ‘pitcher’, which we use for milkshakes and the like, and a smaller ‘mini food processor’ sized which I use for individual drinks, breadcrumbs, and other small things.

    Our combo has the double blades, which helps with the ice. I hate my normal blender when it comes to mixing the way I want. Now, if I had a commercial blender, I’d buy one of each, but I’m not forking over that kind of money for a blender!

    I have a combo and it’s awful. The blender is ok, but the food processor doesn’t work at all and it’s as loud as a jet engine. I’d much rather have seperate units but a good food processor can be pricy. I’m hoping to get one for my shower but unfortunately that’s still a long way off.

    I know this is old but if any one else stumbles opon this and wants an opinion I also have a stand one blender and a Bosch Kitchen Machine.  I love my blender and my Kitchen Machine has a blender slot but I haven’t used it yet.  I would have keep the blender and bought a different food processor.
