blends well, but a bit wimpy,
This review is from: Cuisinart DLC-4CHB Mini-Prep Plus 4-Cup Food Processor, Brushed Stainless Steel (Kitchen)
The mini-prep does a great job of blending small amounts of food and takes up very little counter space. I've used it to make pesto and hummus, and to blend a flaxseed oil and cottage cheese mixture with berries (sometimes partially frozen), and for the most part it just chugs along and processes really well. But it does bog down sometimes and just stop if you fill it more than about half full, and I've had to dig out some of the blended stuff and let it work on the rest, so the motor may be a bit underpowered. The plastic of the work bowl is also pretty thin; I worry about it breaking and can't just toss it in the sink with everything else. But on the whole, it's a great little machine for small jobs. It's a nice-looking little appliance too, with the shiny stainless steel.

About what volume of chick peas are you able to process at one time for your hummus batches? I am going to use this primarily for smoothies and hummus.
