Chop Chop Choppa!
I really like this mini chopping machine! I use it to make sofrito, chopped onions for guacamole, really anything that requires me to chop two or more of any thing, peppers, garlic, onions, carrots whatever. I was iffy on the purchase originally but I am really happy with it. I’d totally buy it again for what I use it for.

I have a huge food processor that takes up so much space on the kitchen counter. Since I am only cooking for two, very rarely do I have a lot of chopping and/or any other food prep that requires the use of the big machine. The mini does the job and takes up very little space. Love it!

Size matters
This works very well for small quantities. There are many times I simply don’t need the full size processor and this is perfect.

Just right
I live in a small house with a small kitchen and must make every appliance count; as well as the storage space for them. This is a nice smaller (but not tiny) machine. It does what it says-helps prep food. Much more manageable than a full size food processor and perfect for cooking for 2-4 people.

BEST PURCHASE EVER
Seriously -- so easy to clean and use and is used frequently to make the most amazing guac and other delicious sauces.

Cannot recommend enough!

My small blue Cuisinart food processor didn’t make it through the holidays, it was very old, and I needed a replacement.
Grace T on Jan 6, 2019
had one for almost 12 years, just died yesterday. So convenient to use, next to my kitchen aid mixer, it is the most used item in my kitchen. Hope it lasts as long as my old one!
Kathlynn S on Jan 4, 2019
smaller size
Angela N on Dec 31, 2018
I wanted a compact food processor, b/c I cook for just one and my kitchen is small. I was thrilled when I saw that Cusinart ... probably the most trusted brand in this space ... made such a product. When I was married in the 70s, food processors hit the market big time and newlywed baby boomers such as I and my then husband scooped them up in droves. Ours lasted as long as our marriage ... 11+ years!!!
Maureen L R on Dec 29, 2018
It is my personal favorite kitchen appliance for every small touch when cooking or baking....
Sandra S on Dec 23, 2018
I have a tiny one and a big one. I think this size will be good for smalll to medium size recipes, chopping garlic, nuts, etc.
Cherryl F on Dec 22, 2018
i have really big one and sometimes it's just too big.
Dierdre D on Dec 21, 2018
I attended a cooking class with my grandson in Madison, WI, at your store, and I loved cooking with this product.
Lynda M on Dec 21, 2018
Sometimes the mini processor is too small and I don’t like to get out the large one - so this should be just right!

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.
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.
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 food processor have the capability to slice potatoes like in scalloped potatoes?
Trisha on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it's small and only chops or purees.
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.
Can you chop peppers?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but not perfectly, and you will need to cut them in large pieces first, of course. I primarily use my mini food processor for chopping nuts, grinding spices, and emulsifying salad dressings--it is absolutely fantastic for this!
does this have a juicer attachment?
A shopper on May 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No juicer attachment. But the best tool in my kitchen. I use it all the time for salsas, humus, sauces. And to hide vegetables from my kids because it can chop the veggies really fine. Hope this helps.
Can this make cauliflower rice?
Kim P on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It will chop up the cauliflower florets up fine so you can then transfer to pan to prepare the recipe according to directions. I have made the rice and it is delicious.
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.
Can this processor grind coffee beans?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have not personally tried Coffee beans in it but have done several kinds of Nuts with no issues at all. Hope that helps. Love mine!
Does the processor grade cheese?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not exactly grate, but chop fairly well for firmer cheeses, not for softer cheeses. Keep the cheese refrigerated or frozen until you are ready to grate. Best to use device with grater blade or hand held unit for grating.
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

A shopper on Mar 17, 2019
