Great size for small family
I love my mini food processor. Its small size makes it perfect for prepping meals for just me and my husband. It's great that I can easily store it in my cupboard and easily pull it out for use instead of the oversized and heavy versions. The pieces are easy to take apart and clean.

"Handy, but not as Good as the Real Thing"
This is convenient to use when precision isn't particularly important. It is a nice and much lighter alternative than whipping out my full size Cuisinart Food Processor, but it leave a lot to be desired.

It's not quite as good as a blender for purees, nor is it particularly well suited to teh even chopping that my big Cuisinart can handle. It also doesn't really hold all that much in terms of volume. That being said, a quick garlic puree, pesto, or chimmichurry sauce is easy enough to achieve with this baby, but for now my chunky salsas will be left to the Pro

Smoke?
My first time using this product after purchasing it from Sur La Table, smoke started coming out of where the top screws into the base within twenty seconds of pressing "chop"! I was chopping butter and 2 cups of cornmeal together--not too much for a 4 c. capacity food processor. SMOKE? My entire kitchen reeked of burnt plastic for a day.

OK for small jobs
I have the 3 quart which was too small and I have the little one which is perfect for very small jobs. I thought the 4 quart would be able to do everything I need, but I still found it too small. It works perfectly but even when I just need to chop 2 apples, I have to stop and take out the first one an then put in the second. It holds 2 apples, but by the time the second one is chopped, the first is mush. I finally broke down and went to the Sur La Table store and bought the larger Cuisinart food processor with the wide chute and I just love it. It's so much faster. I cut two apples in half, drop them down the chute and done!

A process
This little machine does the job. It helps make quick work of smaller jobs especially if you're in a rush. Just put everything in the bowl and push the button, bam! Onions celery, carrots processed in snap of your finger. I love it. While I love prepping my veggies for stews etc sometimes I don't feel like it that's when this little whizzer comes in handy. A great purchase. A time saver.

My husband loves it!
This purchase was a gift for my husband. He had a 2 cup Mini-Prep but says this one is much more versatile.

I LOVE IT! It chops/grind well, easy to clean, compact enough to fit in a cozy spot. I live in a apartment, small kitchen, but to have that type of appliance readily accessible makes a lot of difference when preparing a meal.

Peggy D on Aug 21, 2017
Wanted a small appliance to keep on the counter to make pesto and do small scale chopping. Also wanted something easier to wash than my bigger Cuisinart processor which takes up too much room on my counter.

It's just my husband and I so I don't need to cook large batches of anything. The larger capacity food processors are too much for our needs. The size of this one is perfect for two people.
jwittek on Apr 17, 2017

Jerry M on Mar 6, 2017
I bought this food processor when I was living in an apt and short on space. Cuisinart is a preferred brand, so this processor is effective and efficient for basic recipes that don't require large quanties or more cuts than chop and purée.
karissa k on Feb 19, 2017
I hate pulling out the large food processor, when all I need is a few small items chopped or grated, so I was looking for a coffee maker and saw this, It was a good price, and I will use it often.

I needed a new one after my old one broke.

can pie crust dough be made in the cuisinart mini food processor?

Will it chop fresh ginger pretty fine?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2016

Can I use this food processor to make salad dressing?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2015

Does this food processor shred cheese?

Can this item purée chopped onions?
A shopper on May 5, 2017

Is it relatively quiet?
A shopper on Feb 26, 2015
