I am a food professional and have used this many times since it is a perfect size (not too large or too small) for the little tasks that often come up at home, and I don't want to use my big machine. It has done a terrific job on everything from bread crumbs to salsa, mayonnaise, grinding nuts, pureeing onions, etc. It is easy to control and not 'over process' whatever the job is since the blade comes to a complete stop immediately. The instruction book is Cuisinart's usual competent quality. I do highly recommend it for a small size processor.

Our household consists of just my husband and I, so I've never felt the need for a full-sized food processor. However, when my tiny (<2 cup) Black & Decker mini-chopper finally died, I thought that getting a slightly bigger model might be in order. After much research, I decided on this Cuisinart model. Overall, I have been very happy with it, but I have detailed some specific pluses and minuses below.

LIKE:
*Chops very well! Almost every job takes only a few pulses of the "Chop" button. In general, foods are chopped more evenly than with my previous model. Also, the Cuisinart, although it is larger, does a better job with smaller batches of food.
*Again, although the Cuisinart is larger, it has a relatively small, upright profile. It could easily sit out on the counter, although we store ours underneath a cabinet.
*The pieces clean very easily. Although each piece is dishwasher safe, most of the time (unless I have chopped a more oily food), I feel that a rinse in soapy water under the faucet is sufficient.
*The locking blade is a nice feature--i.e., you can turn the cup upside down and dump the food without the blade coming out--although it is NOT foolproof.
*It is surprisingly quiet! The first time I used it, I was impressed but how little noise it made.
*Finally, I like that the handle and lid are all large and easy-to-grasp, so even if your hands are wet/slippery from cooking, the unit is easy to manage.

DON'T LIKE:
*My main disappointment with this product has been the built-in "cord keeper" underneath. This feature might work if you were only keeping part of the cord wrapped around it and having the unit sit permanently on the counter.

I'm one of those who agonizes over appliance purchases...I read epinions and Amazon reviews and any other specs and faqs I can find. This was not a major purchase (in terms of outlay of money), but I wanted something a)easy to assemble, b)easy to use, c)that does what it is supposed to do, and d)that is easy to clean and put away. This little unit does all that. It is just right for small jobs, and cuts quickly. There is a small learning curve -- for me, anyway -- I've had to learn when to use "pulse" as opposed to a steady "chop" to prevent ingredients from being ground too small.

But overall, a great little cook's helper!

Color: Die Cast Verified Purchase
The "die cast" model is just silver plastic. And before you say "that's just the name of a silver-like color", let me stop you. Williams-Sonoma and Crate & Barrel sell a version of this model that is *actually* die cast. As in metal. I actually went down to their stores and saw them in person. They sell them for $60, a considerable premium over the plastic models. Calling this plastic model "die cast" is a deliberate misrepresentation of the product.

I had an immersion blender with chopper accessory, but the chopper broke to bits. I used that accessory often, but they can't be replaced for the model(s) of immersion blenders I own, so I decided to just get small with the food processor.

Cuisinart. Good name, good reviews, reasonable price. Let's go.

It can't grind Parmesan cheese. I cut the cheese into small pieces, put the pieces into the bowl and pressed "grind". It sort of chopped, but minutes of whirring (stop, check, whir again, stop, check, whir again...) produced some fine cheese and lots of big chunks. It seemed like the blade was bending during the effort. It's just cheese for crying out loud, not the hard Parmesan rind and definitely not a brick.

The Elite is a very lightweight, cheap, plastic appliance -- much like the cheap chopping accessories that come as enticing afterthoughts with immersion blenders. On a bright note, it was properly designed so the bowl and lid don't "catch" water during the dish washing cycle, as many food processor parts do. So one star for that.

Sending it back. (There's a small bowl and blade somewhere in the cabinet for the full size food processor, right? That'll just have to do, and now that I think of it, will probably do it best.)

Fast and much quieter than our (much) older machines. Also dis-assembles more easily, and parts look to be durable.

I owned the CH-4DC's predecessor since it originally came out, and this re-take on the basic idea of a quick, uncomplicated everyday chopping tool is flawless. The highlights:
1. The bowl is really quite big.
2. This little guy is FAST. To start, pulse everything. I mean that unless you meant to make soup.
3. Blade stays put when you turn the bowl upside down to empty it. I don't always want that, but when I do, it's great to have it. It's not complicated. All you do is push the blade assembly straight down until it clicks. It releases very easily.
4. As with all food processors, having an extra bowl is enormously handy. I don't know about you, but 90% of my cooking is done under the gun with no time to clean up between the garlic and the parsley.
5. The only bad thing is the scraper that comes with the CH-4DC. It's laughably inadequate. What it is, basically, is a plastic version of the stick the doctor uses to depress your tongue during a throat inspection. While they're not exactly building the space shuttle, Cuisinart is in its own way a very sophisticated company with a proud heritage of innovation and design. What I want to know is who on Earth over there thought that a see-saw for field mice was a "scraper" for an otherwise perfectly lovely product.
