Small appliance for small quantities
I've used these mini preps a few times during SLT classes. Often times recipes are cut in half and they worked fine for those small quantities. Unlike the large ones, they are easy to clean with just the bowl, lid and blade.

There are two very small holes in the lid for adding liquids but only use one at a time or your liquid has trouble entering the bowl. I will say, the lid is difficult to get a good grip of, especially when it gets dirty or wet.

All in all, this is a handy helper and I'm considering one for my home kitchen

had one for years, use it all the time
I love this thing. I'm on my 3rd one.
1st was lost to an expired relationship
2nd one was lost to an abrupt move across the country
3rd one is in it's 4th year and going strong.
It's my most used appliance.
It's great for chopping onions, garlic & herbs, making pesto and sauces. I've crushed Oreos and graham crackers, chocolate chips ( I keep an extra coffee grinder for nuts)
It's small, so you're not going to make tons for an army - that's what the big one is for - but dinner for 2-4 people after work, it's a handy helper.
Small. Fast. Easy to store. Easy to use. Easy to clean.
it's a great, affordable gift for someone just starting out, or who has a small kitchen. but also a bug kitchen...it's just a good little tool

Wonderful and practical
It is a wonderful tool. it grinds and chops everything, it is easy to clean and it does not take much space. It is supper easy to use and it is very durable. I use it on a daily basis and I have the same one for more than 4 years now

Doesn't even work
Bought one. Didn't turn on at all, went back to exchange it, second one doesn't work either. Waste of time. If you decide to buy this have them test it in the store

Love it, so handy
I just love this product had it for two years now. I use is just about for everything, to make salsa, grind oats to make flour and to chop veggies when needed. Very easy to use and clean, I take on vacation because is just the right size.

Worth its Counter Space
Bought it for small jobs, and it performs! Chops a single onion or small amount of garlic (2 cloves) into small, surprisingly uniform pieces with minimal stops to scrape down.

Safety lock operates easily.

Haven't tried grinding hard items yet.

Great buy!
I have had this food processor for several years and it still works great! I love it for small things and if it ever gives out I'll buy another one immediately. If you're looking for a good small or starter food processor you can't go wrong with this one.

Good tool
I'm replacing older model w/this new one. It's great for small jobs.

Karen A on May 25, 2016
Had old one and they are very handy when you have a smaller job.
April H on May 10, 2016
I had a larger one and never used it and donâ??t have room to store the larger one. Everything I do is only for 2 people so donâ??t need a large processor. The price was right and I get a credit from my CC company on this purchase.
Lynne S on May 4, 2016
I have great experiences with this brand and I wanted a back-up chopper since my old one is old, even though it still works fine. I also love the red color
corinne t on May 1, 2016
Good size, good price.

Kandy K on Mar 27, 2016
I chose this mini prep because I have one that is a little older, my daughter (great cook) wanted one so I am treating her to this model - love the color!! It is very versatile and can conquer many tasks. I watched the video - looks easier than how mine works; but I am sure some features have changed! Also, I am a LEFTY and tend to do things backwards!!

I attended a cooking glass and we made pesto using this processor. It is small and compact so it will not consume a lot of counter space or cabinet space. I also loved the stop and start reverse buttons which are important for grinding a spread like pesto!
Patricia A on Jul 31, 2015
Convenient small processor when you don't want or need to take out and use the full size model, and I love that it comes in Red, and its $10 cheaper than its metallic silver counterpart.
CINDY J on Jul 26, 2015
We've had one for years and use almost daily. It was just time for a new one.
Delia M on Jul 16, 2015
I had my original mini mixer for 20 years - literally. It was one of my first purchases out of college in 1996 and it finally died this past year. This is my (cooler) replacement. Hopefully it lasts as long

Is this mini processor powerful enough to grind raw meat?
arbit on Jul 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, this food processor cannot grind raw meat
Is there a small cuisinart that will also slice and shred?
A shopper on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not that I am aware of. This one does great with chopping, grinding, mincing, etc. But it is just a knife blade, so no slicing!
Can I make tahini or/and hummus in this small food processor?
A shopper on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: i have made hummus in my larger cuisinart, so i would assume absolutely yes! but i haven't tried that particular recipe in the 3 cup mini yet. i do love using the mini.
Does this processor have a tube for allowing slow oil flow into a salad dressing? I am trying to replace my Little Pro Plus which has been discontinued.
A shopper on Oct 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this processor does not. However, you could perhaps use a funnel and pour from this processor into the funnel for slow oil flow.

The product is great, but I wish it had a few other things:
1. A pointed end for which to pour, thus reducing mess.
2. An easier-to-clean blade/processor mechanism.
are there replacement bowls for this ?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we ordered one from Amazon. They can also be purchased directly from Cuisinart. They are about $11 or $12.
Can this make cauliflower rice?
Kim P on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would think it would be fine for that purpose. Just use caution not to overprocess into cauliflower crumbs! Since it is a pulse mechanism you will have better control of the chop than in a standard large processor.
Can I make pie crust dough in this?
ROSSANA F on Oct 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Due to the small size I would say 'no'. Also, It is a chopper rather than a food processor and motor and blade are not designed for that type of use.
Will this grate raw carrots?
Nancy C on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes.........i have even grated caulifllower florets to make the rice.
HOW MANY WATTS IS THIS PROCESSOR? JUST PURCHASED CUISINART'S SMART STICK 2-SPEED HAND BLENDER AND IT IS 200 WATTS!
A shopper on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's 250 watts.
