4.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't have bought it had I known..., May 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cuisinart DLC-4CHB Mini-Prep Plus 4-Cup Food Processor (Kitchen)
Length:: 1:07 Mins

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 see where you are coming from, however this is commonly the case with food processors- you CAN'T fill them up more than 1/2 or 2/3 if what you are processing is liquidy at all, or it will like you said ooze out the middle, etc. i guess it's good for people to be aware of this, which is common with almost all food processors, so if you want something for bigger batches you do have to get a bigger bowl.
although the product is appropriately named "mini" and appropriately priced, IMHO. I don't consider a 2-can batch of hummus "mini" by any means. I have the 7 cup cuisinart which is a good size for all but the most mini jobs, and could def handle 2 or maybe 3 cans of beans.
i have had a similar experience to yours in the past- and initially i was pretty ticked off! but then i looked at the design of the center stem and realized it should have been obvious to me that it was not intended to contain liquidy stuff above the level of the stem, it is obviously not sealed. but why can't they fix this design flaw, maybe with a taller stem piece? after all, the name is a little misleading when 4 cups really means 2 or 3. more solid chopping food isn't so much of an issue, though.

Great feedback, Lizi. Yeah, I didn't know this about food processors when I made this video. But now I just put one can of beans in at a time and make a batch that fills it half full, and I'm pretty happy with it.

Excellent! Very helpful and good to know before purchasing. Thanks, Chris! I guess I make hummus in two cup batches!

I noticed this right away when I was trying to make two cups of baby food (first time using this machine). What a disappointment. Thanks for your video.

it is fairly standard knowledge that you should only fill it half way - and not over the top of the blade chamber. Glad to see that you now like it though! Your comments are appreciated!!
