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

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

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.
June 11, 2016
It is OK for me. I live alone, I am very old and don't cook very much any longer.

Nancy N on Nov 26, 2016
Current mini food processor broke and we loved the cuisinart one we had. That one lasted about 8 years and served us very well. That is why we purchased it again. We really beat it up and it works great. Much easier than taking out the big one that we have.

Elizabeth M on Oct 25, 2016
I have a larger Cuisinart that I love but sometimes need to do only a small amount of processing. The mini version will, i hope, be helpful. Cuisinart is a great brand.
Kim L on Oct 24, 2016
I'm single in a very small apartment, it's the perfect size for me. Among other things it makes perfect hummus.

Deborah H on Sep 3, 2016
because i have one and have used it so many times while cooking. Its amazing how much time I cut back chopping veggies in the food processor than by hand. Plus I hate cutting onions - and the food processor does such a good job! Love this item and was happy to get it or the bride and groom!

I've never owned a food processor before and I got this one as a starter.

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

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
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.
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!
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.
