Cook in Style
The Mini-Prep Plus is the perfect little helper for small food preparation. Finished with elegant brushed stainless steel, the Mini-Prep Plus is a fashionable fit for any kitchen.
The Cuisinart 4-Cup Mini-Prep Plus Processor handles a variety of food preparation tasks including chopping, grinding, pureeing, emulsifying and blending. The patented auto-reversing blade provides a super-sharp edge for the delicate chopping of herbs and for blending and pureeing other soft foods, while the blunt edge offers a powerful cutting surface to grind through spices and other hard foods. Pulse activation gives maximum control for precision processing, whether chopping or grinding.
The powerful high-speed motor works hard and fast to accomplish any small job with ease. Chop herbs, onions, garlic; grind spices, hard cheese; puree baby foods; blend mayonnaise and flavored butters, all with the same compact appliance. The Mini-Prep Plus Processor takes up minimum counter space and stores neatly on the countertop or in a cabinet.
Auto-reversing Blade Technology
The auto-reversing Smart Power Blade moves in one direction to chop and in the other direction to grind. The unit provides an easy-grip handle, and dishwasher-safe parts make cleanup a snap.
The Everyday Food Processor
With a 4-cup capacity, this mini food processor comes in handy for everyday food prep in the kitchen. Simply add food to the work bowl, lock the cover into position, and press either the "chop" or "grind" control button. Small enough to keep on the counter for everyday use, the mini food processor measures 5-2/5 by 7-3/5 by 9-8/9 inches and carries an 18-month limited warranty.

The chop function works great for chopping, pureeing, and mixing; use it to puree cooked vegetables, make mayonnaise, mix salad dressing, or chop foods like herbs, celery, onions, garlic, and most cheeses. Use the grind function for grinding spices and for chopping hard food such as peppercorns, seeds, chocolate, and nuts.

Regarding capacity, keep in mind that although the total volume held by the work bowl is 4 cups, you really can't work in batches much over 2 cups (less for dry items). If you exceed the batch limit, you'll end up with a result that is over processed on the bottom and untouched on the top. The user manual also advises that to avoid motor strain, the work bowl should never be filled more than two-thirds the way up the blade assembly column. So in practice, the 4-cup work bowl translates to a best-case maximum of 2 cups end product.
I'd also like to point out that the motor casing for the Cuisinart Mini Prep listed here (model DLC-4CHB) is plastic with a faux stainless steel finish. When I bought this product, I inferred from the item title that the casing was constructed of stainless steel. But if you look closely at the detailed item description, you'll see (as I discovered only after purchase!) that the construction is plastic made to look like stainless steel. And the plastic is pretty flimsy at that, so just be aware of what you are buying.
Bottom line: Would I buy this Mini Prep again? Probably not. For my needs, I think I'd look for something sturdier and more versatile. Do I think the Mini Prep is a complete train wreck? No, I use it for what it's worth at least 4 times a week and I appreciate how easy it is to clean.Read more ›
I have a larger Cuisinart that sits on the shelf for months at a time and a 2 cup Black and Decker mini processor, which is just way too small, but I used it for years anyway. I had seen this model on a lot of TV cooking shows, but had no idea what size or brand it was. Now I am recognizing my model in use almost everyday.
I recently came across this 4 cup Cuisinart, quite by accident, and I absolutely love it. I have used it more in the last few weeks that I used the 2 cup in 6 months. It makes excellent bread crumbs, fresh and dried, and just the right amount of salsa or tapenade in seconds. Yes, it does pulverize onions, but I watch it very closely and since they are an ingredient, not served by themselves, they work out fine.
Four cups is a good size and it has a lot of power. It's easy to use and clean.
*** In response to the review where the motor died after only a few uses ... this happened to me the third or fourth time that I used it - it just stopped working. Fortunately my husband was standing there and while I was having a fit, he simply pushed the long plastic thing into the base to make the connection. I hadn't pushed it in all the way. No problem after that and I now make sure it is inserted properly.

This food processor is very small and only works for small items. If you put more than a 1/2 cup of something in it, it bounces around. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Diana S Worthington

It's a pretty good litte guy. The only draw back is the leaking through when you use it with a lot in it. Not terrible at all, but seems like they could make it better.Published 27 days ago by IMAD!man
