Product Description

Product Description

The name Cuisinart is synonymous with food processors and this 7-cup unit is the perfect size for daily food prep for an average family of four. This versatile appliance comes with two blades and two discs that perform a variety of kitchen tasks in a short time. The main stainless-steel blade chops or pur????????????es raw or cooked fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, and nuts. A switch on the motor base flips up for mincing or pur????????????eing and flips down for the pulse option, which offers better control when chopping food into larger chunks. The included plastic blade kneads up to two pounds of perfectly textured bread, pastry, or pizza dough in less than two minutes. Other attachments include a slicer disc for slicing or julienning luncheon meats, cheeses, and various vegetables, and a shredding disc for vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, or iceberg lettuce. Foods to be sliced or shredded are inserted through an extra-large plastic feed tube above the processor's bowl and helped through with a pusher.

For convenience, the bowl, feed tube, and pusher are all dishwasher-safe, reducing cleanup as well as prep time. The sleek base gives this processor a commercial-kitchen look and its weight and rubber feet make it immovable during use. This Cuisinart food processor comes with a spatula and a colorful instruction and recipe book as well as a full five-year warranty on the motor.

I use my Cuisinart primarily for chopping veggies or making my own ground beef. I can use more flavorful cuts than the leftover bits usually made into ground beef and control the texture to my preference.

The Cuisinart 7 Cup performs great for my needs. It's both powerful and very quiet. Cheap proccessors with side mounted, belt driven motors are usually so noisy that you don't want to bother with them.

Others may disagree, but I find Cuisinart's safety interlocks only a minor hassle. The small center feed tube isn't interlocked and is useful for adding ingredients while processing.

I looked at other food processors in stores before I bought the Cuisinart, and found I prefer the ergonomic feel and control of the old-fashioned Cuisinart paddle switch. Whether it be the new Cuisinarts or KitchenAids, I don't like to have to search around for the little sealed-dome lumps on modern control panels. The first time you use the Cuisinart up-for-on / down-for-pulse lever switch, it's so easy and intuitive, you don't have to look to use it ever again. I've never regretted my choice - I love the paddle!

When your fingers are wet or messy, you can press the lever down to pulse with a knuckle much more easily than trying to find the right tiny plastic bump on a typical control panel.

If you actually like membrane switches, the KitchenAid food processors are good choices, too, but the Cuisinart classic paddle / lever switch is the trump card for me.

I always check Consumer Reports before I buy anything and they gave this machine it's top rating. After using it for a while, I have to agree. It performs very well and the wide opening lets me chop large pieces of vegtables without having to chop them up thin in order to get them into the chute. I can't recommend this processor highly enough.

I'm cooking for two, in a New York kitchen. I still recall my Grandmother's house in Iowa, where the kitchen was somewhat larger than my current living room, but that was a long time ago, and now my counter space is roughly the size of my cutting board. For me, the 7 cup food processor is pretty much optimal in terms of both footprint and capacity. Also, I routinely use it for slicing. chopping and shredding. A food processor is the right device for these tasks. While it may be used for kneading bread dough, it's not a replacement for a stand mixer, and a blender is the right tool for pureeing. For these uses, the food processor is a compromise.

The Cuisinart DFP is pretty much the same as the original food processor introduced in the 1970s. It has one speed, and a single three position switch: on, off and pulse. It comes with a blade for chopping, a device for making bread, and blades for slicing and shredding. There is a dual feeling tube. The outer tube is quite wide, and has a safety feature that requires it to be locked in place before the machine will work. A narrower tube, which is not locked, and is intended for narrower items such as carrots, or for adding liquids or continuous feed items such as garlic.

Used for chopping and slicing, the machine is excellent. It can whiz through a head of cabbage or a fennel bulb for slaws, and breezes through potatoes. I still find it surprising how quickly it can race through a job that would take up to half an hour with a knife and about 20 minutes with a mandolin. The safety interlock is a trivial annoyance, and cleaning is easy.

There are two reviews on this site as well as some on others claiming that the safety features on this model are a problem and/or that the feeder pusher can't be removed without removing the entire top. My conclusion is that these people must not have read the instructions, which I feel are clear as to how to remove the dual-pusher (which is the notable feature of this model vs. the DLC-5). I'm having no problems at all and think this is a great product. The large dual-pusher feeding tube is a very useful feature.

We had one of these babies in my apartment at college and we used it for everything. Put any good food into the cuisinart and it comes out even better than before. Imagine, chipped roast beef sandwiches, fruit smoothies, home made salsa, hummis, just about anything. If the Cuisinart could withstand college apartment use, it can withstand anything!! Wow, Cuisinart is the God of the kitchen!!

I was not prepared for how quiet this appliance is! Naturally, depending on what is being processed, there will be some sound, but not from the motor. Solidly made, stable on the countertop, does not bounce around like some lighter weight machines.

Be sure to read the instruction manual thoroughly so you will know how to use it properly, and also what it can and cannot & should not be used for.

The description says it is a "7-cup" food processor. However, do not attempt to put 7 cups of liquid in it. The maximum liquid capacity is not more than 2 cups. There is a fill line right on the bowl indicating the maximum. You can expect liquid to leak out the bottom if liquid exceeds this line.
