Product Description

Cook in Style

Cuisinart

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.

Cuisinart

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.

Product Features

  • Exclusive Auto-reversing SmartPower Blade
  • Touchpad Controls
  • Chops or Grinds
  • Spatula
  • 4-cup Work Bowl with Handle
  • Instruction / Recipe Book
  • Work Bowl Cover
  • Cuisinart
  • Dishwasher safe parts
  • Limited 18-month Warranty

Delicious recipes are easy!

Accessories include a custom spatula and an instruction book with recipes for guacamole, hummus, pesto, roasted red pepper sauce, peanut butter, and more.

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.

Customer Reviews

The little plastic clips on the lid are very flimsy and broke, one at a time.
Cate
This is really light compared to the full size and it is perfect for a small kitchen since I have no space on the counter and have to take out every time I need it.
MLE
I highly recommend this product to anybody looking for a compact food processor which works great!

The Cuisinart 4-Cup Mini Prep is great for simple light-weight jobs like making salad dressing and chopping onions, but when I use it with heavier foods (like cooked spinach) I can smell the motor burning. So to avoid motor burnout, I no longer use the Mini Prep to process even small quantities of high-density foods - a use limitation I hadn't anticipated.

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.

Check out this video for some great recipes and ideas.

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.

I was 21 years old, wandering the William Sonoma store, holding my gift certificate from Dad. I was totally lost. With little knowledge or direction I stumbled upon this little food processor. Honestly, I think I bought it because I thought it was "cute". But I'm so glad I did! Now 6 years later this little baby still earns the honor of being a "counter-top" appliance. The Mini-prep has a sharp blade for quick and even chopping. It's perfect for small batches of pesto or hummos. I use it to grate onion, carrot and cheese and to make a quick smoothie for one. It's small and easy to clean, which I absolutely love. It gets far more use than my big guy and after 6 years it works as well as the day I bought it. A great buy!

I shot this short to show a design flaw which, had I known of it, would have stopped me from buying an otherwise a good product.

I searched for the 4-cup processor and was not able to find it locally. Everyone had the 3-cup processor. This new one will easily chop a medium-sized onion and most everything needed for a recipe. It is light and small enough to keep on the counter. Just what I needed!

I researched this handy counter top tool and read all reviews for days before purchasing. This being my THIRD, yes third kitchen tool of its kind (the other two got donated to Good Will because they didn't live up to the manufactures claims)I have to say that this is the best little kitchen companion. It has cut my prep time 75%...it is a must have!!! Really!

We love this processor. It is perfect for normal use, a bit small for party's. We use this for salsa, onions etc... Almost every meal we use it for some small chopping, grinding or mixing job. I love using it for the garlic cream cheese for celery. We had the Black and Decker one before this and loved it. The only part that makes this better is that all the parts that get covered with food go in the dishwasher. This was not the case with the Black and Decker.
