    I had an older version of this cusinart 3 cup food processor for the past 7 years, it still works but the cup finally cracked and the blade became a little dull. I got this new one to replace that.
    I’m happy with it. It’s easy to clean, easy to store away, and I like the little spatula that comes with it. It chopped garlic, ginger, parsley well. It did take a few minutes to get chopped down to really fine paste, but it worked.
    I also chopped hazelnuts into hazelnut butter. It heated up but did the job. Not the most powerful but I have a bigger more powerful food processor that I rarely use, because it’s so big and bulky to take out, clean, and put away. This one is a nice and light and works well enough that I will use regularly.

    My mother has neuropathy in her hands and joint issues, so we needed a mini-chopper that was easy for her to open/close and clean. This one is pretty close to perfect for her needs in that regard. She is still a little wary of the delicateness of the lid locking parts, but so far she’s been able to do it without too much problem.

    Our previous mini-chopper’s lid broke so we needed to get a new one. Although we have a large food processor, my mom really likes to do a lot of smaller jobs rather than one large job, so we needed to replace the broken chopper. I looked around and finally settled on this one for the following reasons.

    1. double the capacity of previous chopper – in the previous appliance mom was frequently having to split the amount of things to be chopped in half in order to get it all chopped, it was still not enough for the larger food processor, but it was too much for the little one. this chopper is 3 cups and that gives her enough space to put all the item in at one time and still have a little space in the bowl.

    2. different modes – we had a nut & seed grinder & we had the little chopper, the nut & seed grinder had a very small working bowl and couldn’t really handle walnuts because the moisture would gum up the blade, and the chopper was not great for dealing with the pumpkin and sesame seeds when it still worked. My mom has been experimenting with this chopper and was able to get the walnuts chopped up quickly and easily, and she really likes the way it handles chopping an onion up especially when you can add a little oil to it. This device improved on as well as replaced the other two.

    3. ease of use – as I said, my mom’s hands experience numbness and so she has trouble gauging how much force she needs to use to do something. with our old chopper this meant she’s often over-turn the lid and lock it too roughly, this lead to that thin part being over-stressed and breaking. this lid locking set up is easier for her to see, which means she can check her efforts against the visual and not over do it. The lid is also wider and easier for her to grip, and the base that raises it up off the table makes it easier for her to see and operate.

    4. cleaning – the larger size makes it easier for my mom to wash it up after use, the parts wash off easily and are sturdy enough that it doesn’t feel like they’ll break if they are washed vigorously

    All in all, we’re very satisfied with this appliance and the price we paid.

    This is not suitable in our family . To operate this a additional requirement is required which I don’t want to buy.

    I can smell the engine when I run it even when using an adaptor. I think the wattage is too high for the EU. Also can’t put the barrel in the dishwasher or food gets stuck in side the handle and it has a special type of screw to unscrew it so I can’t get it clean. Don’t buy.

    This little gem is better than the large ones in many respects. I was hesitant to buy it because of the problems I have with the large models, but this operates very differently.
    I have been using and partly hating Cuisinart for 30 years. The large models leak through the central stem; they need to be scraped down frequently during operation, they are difficult to clean, as some parts collect food and cannot be flushed out, and the plastic tabs break eventually. I do not subject the parts to harsh dishwasher conditions and have a score of special brushes to clean the parts.
    This small processor is actually more powerful in some regards because it operates differently, which is poorly explained by the manufacturer. The two buttons “chop” and “grind” are named so that they give you no idea of how they are different. Operating it clarifies everything. One works clockwise and the other anti-clockwise, presenting a different blade surface, elevation and angle. Alternating between the two shifts the bowl contents back to the blade, sort of. And here is my main disappointment: it doesn’t puree small amounts. I put in two stems of steamed broccoli with hopes of creaming it. It chops everything into tiny bits and sprays them all over the entire bowl, the underside of the lid, the sides. I scraped the bowl down to put everything on the bottom again and the blades just blew everything back without making the particles smaller. I added water and it splattered around into a chopped mess with water, but it was impossible to make it puree.
    Cleaning is really a snap. Immediately run the three pieces (lid, bowl, blade) under water and that’s it. If there is grease in the bowl, use soapy water, but it hasn’t needed scrubbing yet.
    It was able to handle something my large Cuisinart couldn’t: making bone meal. This small unit minced bones into bone meal in a flash. My large Cuisinart got stuck every 4-5 seconds when it wedged a bone between the blade and the bowl.
    Having both sizes is a great advantage. I need to process small amounts of fresh vegetables and fruits to add to every meal for my dog. I have tried several manual mills, juicers, presses, ricers, grates, and have settled on this Cuisinart as the most effective processor. Being the easiest to clean, the least expensive and no problem to add to a crowded kitchen makes it a great solution.
    I just wish it worked more like a blender, being able to pull the bowl contents back for reprocessing instead of splattering them. I will not use the ninja pulse smoothie blenders because they have gasket issues that harbor mold and break down. Until someone designs something better, this Cuisinart is probably my best option.

    Ordered recently after oral surgery to facilitate wider array of food consumption. I’m tired of smoothies, apple sauce, and jello.
    This small unit wirks just fine for chopping down pasta, chicken nuggets, soups, etc.
    It’s easy to clean and after few tries I’ve found sweet spot for textures. Not too fine not too big. Yep, this unit is a game changer for anyone who’s chopper challenged.
    My only concern is the loose ness of the plastic handle. I hope it doesn’t break
    This is way better for daily use than my regular sized blender and cuz of small footprint I can leave on counter.
    I recommend and would purchase again.
