  • 250-watt food processor with 3-cup plastic work bowl
  • Chops and grinds with patented reversible stainless-steel blade

Product Description
Powerful, versatile, and blessed with sleek good looks, this processor packs a lot into a small package. The 3-cup workbowl is convenient for many prep tasks and the exclusive SmartPower Blade auto-reverses to chop or grind at your command. Unlike larger models, this machine takes up very little counterspace, so leave it out to help you with daily meal prep like chopping onions, making garden fresh salsas and more.This little 250-watt workhorse comes in handy when a full-size food processor is unnecessary. The 3-cup work bowl is just right for making pesto or a salad dressing, and two receptacles in the lid have pinholes for one or two oils to stream into the bowl while the processor is blending a perfect emulsion. It’s also ideal for chopping and grinding. Pressing the “chop” button deploys the sharp edge of Cuisinart’s patented reversible blade to chop onions, herbs, or bread crumbs. Pressing the “grind” button whirls the blade in the other direction so its blunt side can grind nuts, coffee beans, or cheese. Compact at just 9 inches high and lightweight (it has a plastic body), the Mini Prep Plus can be tucked away in a cabinet, and the little spatula accompanying it goes into a drawer. It carries an 18-month warranty against defects. The plastic work bowl and lid are dishwasher-safe, but the stainless-steel blade should be hand washed to protect its edges. –Fred BrackAmazon.com Review

  • Call me a food snob, but I believe strongly in the right tool for the right job. And, sorry kids, the right tool is almost always a sharp knife and a little skill. There is no replacing that.

    Slicing vedgies? Get yourself a mandoline. Chopping them instead? 8 inch chef’s knife. Grinding cheese? That’s what they make cheese graters for. You don’t use a food processor for mixing, mincing or grinding either. Why? Simple. Consistency.

    Your hands and your skill are your most valuable kitchen tools. When you work with your hands, all of your senses are in action to help ensure you get the best quailty end product. By tossing things into a processor and hitting a button, you take away virtually all the sensory feedback that helps you perfectly prepare good food every time. And consistency is the key to quality.

    Are they useless? No. I use mine for making breadcrumbs or a half dozen other applications in which the end result is a powder or puree (except, really, I prefer a blender for pureeing. The cyclonic action of a blender leads to better results, in my experience). But to think that this will slice, chop, grate, grind, mince or mix on par with what your hands and a sharp blade will do, is simply mistaken. Will it do it fast? Sure. Do you have to have skill to use this? Nope. But quality is more important than convienence, and skill will always produce better results than any gadget.

    Also, I agree with what some other reviewers have said, this peticular model is much too small for most serious applications. It’s pretty, though. That counts for something.

    So, I guess, if you MUST have a food processor, this one will do the job. But please don’t over-use it.

  • We make a lot of Asian food. For some salads, we use peanut and dried shrimp powder. I purchased this Chrome processor for grinding powder. When I put dried shrimps, this machine did not grind or even make small chanks. I removed shrimps and put peanuts but did not grind either, instead just crushed large chanks. I just wanted to grind the way I used my old Braun coffee grinder. Then, I started smell smokes. It seemed burning. I put this back in Amazon’s box and returned the next day.

    If you intend to use this as a grinder, this is not for you. Besides, Chrome means just chrome color, this machine is just a cheap plastic. Light weight of course, but not durable. I will keep using my old Braun coffee grinder for grinding dried shrimps, peanuts, red pepper, black pepper, etc., (except coffee 😉 though it’s quite small.

  • When Received it, the package was badly damaged in shipping. Bought as a gift and had to buy another one because I could not give it in the state it was in. Returned the product two weeks ago. Giving a little extra time for a refund due to the holidays but will not accept any longer. They were very nice about returning the product. It’s the refund part that I’m starting to wonder about. It would be easier just to go to a store and buy it.

  • This mini food processor, chopper, grinder is everything it is advertised to be. My vegetables chop perfectly and coffee is ground to perfection.

    I highly recommend the Cuisinart for quick preparation of foods and meals.
