Anyway, after unpacking and washing everything, I've already made carrot raisin salad. Chopped brussels sprouts salad and cranberries with walnuts. Even though it states "3-cup", it doesn't mean you can process 3 cups. The chute helps with shredding larger capacities of dry (carrots, cabbage, etc.) processing into a bowl.
I haven't seen mentions in reviews (of which there are many) of the instruction manual with recipes. Before you pass up the MANUAL and recipes, note that the recipes are actually instructional. Which part to assemble for what, when to add ingredients, how many times to pulse, blah blah, and best of all, basic recipes are scaled down for this small processor. Hummus, potatoes au gratin, meatloaf, pizza, baguettes, brownies, apple pie, cheesecake? By the time you try a half dozen or so, you'll be well on your way. (judging from some of the complaints and low ratings, some folks did NOT bother to read the manual!)
To quote another reviewer, 'J. Janssen':" What these things do well is puree ingredients into sauce bases, tapenades, soups, salsas and the like. Don't buy one expecting to throw away the paring or chef knives. If you are preparing large quantities of sliced vegetables you're better off with a mandolin or a good set of knives."
Amen. No food processor in the world will ever replace a patient and dedicated cook with a good set of knives. Machines like the Cuisinart will make things a lot easier, but they're not a magic wand. And a mandolin can be nearly priceless when it comes to doing French fries, sliced cucumbers and carrots for salads or other tasks. But for a quick batch of salsa or relish, or if you like veggies sliced thin and quickly, the Cuisinart will be right up your alley. It's rare to find a processor with this much power and with such a small 'footprint' (counter space).
It is perfect for innumerable small tasks like chopping, making pesto, can make small portions of pizza dough and so much more....all the things you might want to do in a regular food processor but find it too big. Awesome for a small household as well. I use it all the time and totally love it. i do have a full size Cuisi as well: with this mini around, I find I use the big one less often; i aso have an immersion blender which I use a ton, but find my mini can do some things better that the stick blender (which happens to totally RULE for salad dressings and smooth soups/sauces.) i use it for smaller portions of tabbouli salad so we can eat it freah...excellent!
One reviewer complained that it was too loud. I heartily disagreed. It makes the same sound as a food processor, only scaled to its size. Nothing weird about that. The Cuisinart mini preps ARE loud, with a hi-pitched whine. This one is not like those. I have only one complaint: it is 3 cups. I keep thinking that they really should have made it 4 cups/1 quart. It is a tad small and that extra cup would have been perfection. But...that preference aside, it s a great, indispensable worthwhile little food processor. Highly recommend!
I looked around at a couple of the highly rated processors on Amazon, specifically the KitchenAid one. Very easy to clean, takes up a small amount of space so I just keep it out most of the time. Got pretty much what I wanted.
The bowl and the lid have gone through the dishwasher countless times and have held up exceptionally well, although the lock on the lid has developed a crack and is close to breaking off. Replacement parts are easy to come by on Amazon (I've purchased a few replacements for lost blades).
Can't imagine my life without it!
