Amazon Renewed Ninja Auto-iQ Nutri Ninja Blender – Love it!

I’ll never need another product like it.

It’s so easy to use my ten year old makes his own concoctions in this machine. It blends smoothies and vegetables to a creamy smooth liquid. I use it to blend up vegetables to sneak nutrition into our diets without them even knowing.My husband even uses it and he uses nothing in the kitchen. The sizes are the cups are perfect. I can either make a large on for two or a single serving for just me. It comes with a few recipes and clear concise directions to make the perfect healthy smoothies.

I love the nutri ninja iq i have a nutri ninja as well the iq gives me a better consistency overall in my smoothies without having to blend ingredients separately, only thing i don’t like is it makes some ingredients warm if you don’t have enough ice or frozen fruit. Here are the specifications for the Amazon Renewed Ninja Auto-iQ Nutri Ninja Blender:

Jj smith’s green smoothies perfect for me.

He comes from that age of monstrous juicer machines with hundreds of parts that took over an hour to get about 2 ounces of cloudy floaty-filled liquid. And, his wife was delegated to clean up the whole kitchen afterwards. Lol now, that’s all changed. Mom & dad are separated 🙁 dad misses his healthy juices. I already have the ninja blender, which my husband & i love. So this nifty littler version, i figured would work great for dad. This little sweety does it all. It’s light weight, easy to store away, easy to clean (rinse it off) and let dry—done. No other product works better. This nutri niinja does seeds, skins, all of everthing. People, that is everything, including seeds: pumpkin, sunflower, flax, also all dried fruits including raisins, dates, apricots, yes, apricots. You don’t have to cut anything up.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • from refurbished products because I’ve a few not so good experiences in the past
  • Not your grandma’s blender
  • IQ Awesome

Liked the first one, so i bought another. Both have been trouble-free. If i needed another, i would purchase the same item.

I wish there were one more larger cup. It’s louder than the older model.

So far i could not ask for better perforance. Does everything as stated and arrived on time in perfect shape.

Very loud- but its only for about 30 seconds cause it works amazing. My only issue and the reason it got 4 stars is because if you fill it at all about the max fill line its difficult to screw on the lid. Other than that great purchase.

I use it for breakfast smoothies. I just started using it so i’m still waiting to find out more about cleaning the rubber gasket that people are talking about but so far cleaning is a cinch.

. Changing my life one smoothie at a time.

I absolutely love my nutri ninja and would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to make smoothies. It works perfectly and i really enjoy coming up with my own recipes and trying the recipes in their free app which you can download.

I have used the iq function for every smoothie that i have made. Would like to know where i can get extra blender containers.

I’ve had and used many different blenders. This thing will blend just about anything you throw at it. I made a home made ice frap recently. If you know the recipe, ya know it requires a ton if ice. Anyway, i blend 1-2 smoothies 6-7 days a week. I use mostly frozen fruit, ripe banana, and juice.

This has exceeded my expectations. I have pushed this too the limit with a small whole beet and bam within 60 sec (plus 2 min heating time) i can whip up a ginger beet soup that’s economic, delicious and nutrious. Prep and clean up are quick and easy and the iq is great, hit start, come back in a minute and voila, a super yummy smoothie. It doesn’t fill and clean it’s self. I clean mine right away so it’s really easy, i fill with water and dump into my garden or compost so’s not to waste water or any of the residual nutrients, etc. I can’t believe i put off buying it for so long.

Great for my protein shakes.

Lost 5 pounds in 3 days with a smoothie only breakfast lunch and a very.

I’ve had it for a few weeks and use it only for smoothies and man, are those smooth.

The problem is it can look and feel screwed in but not. Just had a green smoothie squirt all over me and the kitchen. If it were the first accident i’d say well its me but i’m aware of the problem and have tried to be very careful. This is the 3rd accident in 6 months. It feels tightly closed but its not. The other times it just oozed out. This time it flew in all directions and got over everything.

I use it everyday and it’s great#.

Definitely lives up to the hype.

SharkNinja Nutri Ninja 2-in-1, This thing gets used on an almost daily basis —

Very easy to use and i love the food processor part of it. So much lighter than my old processor.

This thing gets used on an almost daily basis — from making smoothies for an 8 year old to quick veg processing to making homemade icing for a cake to making creamy soups, it is absolutely worth the purchase.

This is a fantastic product for making individual drinks that also does much more than make smoothies – it is also a medium – size, powerful food processor for making whatever you need to make.

Comments from buyers

“Fantastic! Super sharp blades & I love it much more than my Vitamix!
, Powerful slim Ninja that gets the job done.
, it’s great. Love the thing

This works great for smoothies to go in the morning. Blends frozen fruit no problem. I like the bigger attachment as well.

Works great and easy to use. Got this for my dad and he is a smoothie making junkie.

I have some experience using ninja, works great. Fast shipment, and i highly recommend products and seller. Ice into snow, powerful machine.

This powerful blender is fantastic. Makes smoothies and comes with 3 drink cups, just snap lid on and drink on my way to work. You will not be disappointed.

My mother lost the fear for this machine. It works and her husband is glad that he can make his own juice choices separate from my mother’s. Hey have not used the other features yet like the processor. My mother did not bring the book to brazil because she said it was too heavy, it is a pity i wish they had an android version of the book.

I love this versatile, effective food processor. I use it to cook with and to make juices. Very easy to clean and i love the individual server size.

Works perfect and great for the price.

My only suggestion is when making shakes the container could be bigger – only holds about 8 oz.

I think i may have upset my neighbor below me because of how loud it is, but other than that it gets the job done.

We have used this ninja every day, a powerful slim blender that gets the job done. I had a nutribullet before that only lasted 3 months before it quit. This ninja unit is much better designed and powerful. I personally prefer ninja over nutribullet. Also, it takes little counter space unlike many newer designed gigantic blenders, and it looks good too. Please do not discontinue making this unit.

Recommend this for someone who does not have a lot of counter space.

Exactly what i needed and works great.

This is an excellent product — extremely versatile and easy-to-use. Cleans easily and is durable. The to-go container is absolutely perfect for making a quick morning smoothie or a post-workout shake. Absolutely no complaints — a great product.

This thing blends with utter ease and i use it all the time for protein shakes (which turn out nice and smooth), blending up oats & other odds and ends to make a flour-like powder, and to food process larger quantities (in the big container) of food such as pancake batter and the like. The only thing i haven’t used it for is to mix dough- really need to do that and i’ll update as soon as i test it out & adjust my review accordingly if needed. For the year that i’ve been using this, i give it 5 stars. Also something to mention, i have a vitamix, too, and i don’t enjoy it as much as this. Seems like things are always getting hung up/stuck on the bottom and it won’t blend without some coaxing & the right amount of liquid. It also doesn’t blend as smoothly as this ninja. Even though they are 2 different (not by much) products, the blades are so sharp on the nutri ninja that i don’t have any problems with blending, even if it’s not wet enough.If i didn’t pay so much for my vitamix, i’d replace it by trying another ninja product or just use the food processor (the nutri ninja i already have) in its place, but alas i’m kinda stuck with it. I think you’ll really love this product.

Extremely happy with this purchase. I use it every morning sometimes 3-4 times per day. It helps me consume greens as required and helps avoid snacking. Takes about 4-10 seconds to blend to a satisfactory consistency.

I was a little confused by the concept when i was deciding whether to buy but wow am i glad i did. Basically you get a food processor (with blade and dough attachments) and a smoothie maker w/ 3 cups and lids. The smoothies get made right in their cup so minimal cleanup (yay). And both things use the same motor so there’s hardly anything cluttering up my kitchen cabinets. You literally just move the motor between them it’s so easy. Big fan of this would definitely recommend.

And has a very powerful motor.

I have made a whole bunch of smoothies, falafel, nutella cookie bites, and other stuff in the blender/food processor. Make sure you use enough liquid when making smoothies.

Perfect, compact and works great. We use it all the time for protein shakes.

I had 2 other blender for sports which they constantly fail to crush all the ices.

Very powerful, easy to clean and very quick in chopping, pureeing, etc.

Black & Decker BLACK – I’m pretty sure a jet engine is quieter than this food

Chops and purées vegetables and nuts really well. It just takes a little longer and is noisier than i woul like.

We’re happy overall with this food processor. It’s not fancy, but it works fine and is very inexpensive. The only complaint is that it’s so darn loud. It’s so loud that we can’t use it at night for fear of waking up neighbors in the next apartment, and whenever my wife is about to turn it on she has to warn me first so i don’t mistakenly think an f-15 jet fighter just landed in our kitchen.

A bit loud, but works great. Here are the specifications for the Black & Decker BLACK:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Stainless Steel Chopping Blade, Slicer, Shredder
  • 8-Cup Work Bowl – Plent of room to work with
  • Food Chute with Pusher – Helps guide food towards the slicing/shredding disk while the processor is going, for consistent results
  • Dishwasher-Safe Removable Parts
  • Safety Interlocking System – Blades operate only when the lid is securely attached to the bowl

I like it cause it gets the job done , only thing its very noisy and pieces of veggies or cheese etc get stuck under the lid while processing but it works for me worth the money.

Noisy, but does the job well. Removing bottom center post assembly for complete cleaning can be difficult, if you don’t lube the snap-in locking clips (3) on bottom assembly with drop of olive oil, but if done, this assembly is easy to remove for periodic cleaning, since some food gets down the vertical post tube inside the blade unit. Over time, the locking clips tend to dry and become sort of frozen, preventing assembly removal. Remove this center post assembly by turning the large extended three tabs under bottom of bowl counter-clockwise. Easier to clean and use than the old and pricey cuisinart processors. Great device for making frozen banana creams with any flavors desired. First liquify one ripe banana and then add natural flavor, such as raw carob powder, then add chopped frozen bananas (into small 1/3 inch thick) slices. In no time you’ll have a tasty desert or much like ice cream snack.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Just what I needed!
  • Inexpensive and very noisy
  • Food Processor

) it doesn’t turn onthis model has two safety features. The lid has to be securely fastened and the 8 cup container has to be secured in the base. I made the same mistake and called the 1-800 number. She told me to secure everything and i proceeded to explain nicely that i had done that. She humored me and asked me to try one more time. There are tiny little buttons that have to be triggered as a safety precaution. ) you can see food stuck in the bottom external piece that you can’t get out because that piece doesn’t removeevery piece of food container is removable, including the handle. That’s what make it so easy to clean. I always warn everyone in the house that i am about to turn it on. Otherwise, i will scare the s^*t out of everyone. You are literally using it next to the wall.

Just the right size for a small kitchen. Just the right power for everyday cooking.

My old one broke and i thought i was ordering the same thing but it has new features that make it better.

Can’t say enough good things about this. Easy controls (i give it 5 *’s just for that) this processor is a work horse. I’ve given it a workout and it has not let me down. Can’t beat the price for a brand name appliance.

The item is just as described. I love it i can chop vegetables and use it for many other mixtures and blends.

As i believe other reviewers have noted, this is not a water-tight food processor. However, it works great for heavier sauces and solid foods. If you hold the lid down tightly, you can do thinner sauces with minimal leakage (remember to put the tamper in too. I make chopped salads, flours, and sliced veggies without any trouble. There are only two people in my house, so the size is perfect. If i were cooking for three or more, it might be a bit small. Note that this is not a high-powered processor. Sauces will not be the creamy smooth they are on your favorite food blogs or in cookbooks. They will be edible, but not great.

I read several reviews before i decided on this product and noticed many remarked on how loud this was. I did not find that to be true. Very easy to operate, clean and store. There is a space under the motor to store the cord so that it is out of the way. This is the first food processor i have owned that did not come with a plastic blade in addition to the steel blade. I wish it had one but hopefully the steel blade will work for making pie crusts and some cookie recipes i have. Only had this product about a month so if any problems arise i will be back to list them.

I got this from a local outlet store because it was only $16. Thought i would come on amazon and review it as i usually come to amazon for reviews for purchases even if i end up buying it somewhere else. It works reallly well and i would have given it five stars except for how loud it is. I’m pretty sure a jet engine is quieter than this food processor.

I use this more than my blender. It came quickly, it works properly, it’s easy to clean. I use it to chop veggies, i’ve tried to use it to make pie dough. You have to have super cold hard butter for that to work, which i didn’t know. But it works wonderfully for making banana ice cream.

This is such a great food processor. I upgraded to a larger one and couldn’t be happier. It is a quality product that works wonderfully. I feel like i cook so much more since i got it.

I had a b&d mini processor for over twenty years that i loved. A small piece of it broke, and i was unable to find a replacement part. I read reviews of ‘better’ (i. , more expensive) brands, and chose to purchase another b&d, as it had a grating blade. It is almost identical to my old one, but with a larger capacity bowl. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

This is the perfect size kitchen food processor. It works exactly as described and i am very happy with this item.

The first thing i used this model for was to make sauerkraut. There really ought to be separate slicer/grater blades, because this combination ‘shredder’ blade leaves large pieces and much, much, smaller grated pieces, and all sized in between. Iow, the pieces are not of consistent size. I also discovered that the food chute is not level with the top, so pieces get stuck between the bottom of the chute and the side of the cover. That means that every time i use it, i have to get a kitchen knife and clean out that small area. The other thing i think is odd is that the chute is at the back of the processor, so you have to reach across to put food down the chute. The clincher, the one real annoyance for me, is the 2 foot cord. I have to move the processor to the receptacle every time i use it, while every other appliance i have has a 4 foot or better cord and i can just pull them to the front of the counter, plug in the cord, and use them.

It chops and grinds quickly and quietly.

I bought this a few weeks ago and so far it has been worth it. It rices cauliflower and shreds zucchini and carrots in a matter of seconds. I’m planning on making nut butters and milk in the future as well. It’s incredibly easy to clean, plus taking it apart and putting it back together doesn’t take long at well. The only downside is that it’s so loud. I’m a little embarrassed to use it when people are around. But it works so quickly that it really doesn’t matter because the loudness is over in a matter of seconds. Okay, follow-up review: i love it just as much, if not more. I will never shred a sweet potato again.

I cut up my vegetables for homemade soups. I also cut up fruits and vegetables for twin grandsons. I rinse off parts and wipe dry.

Braun K650 Multiquick 600-watt Kitchen Machine Food Processor – One machine that can do it all – at a great price

The braun combimax 650 is a better food processor because it is better designed. It runs more quietly, it loads closer to the counter, it weighs less (6+ pounds ready to chop), it goes together more easily, it has variable speeds (a real plus), and it does at least as good a job as the highly rated (cooks illustrated) kitchenaid, which we previously owned. Com and buy at least the coarse slicing insert 7000490 for $5. There are other useful accessories available from them as well.

I’ve used other food processors but like the fact that i can control the speeds on this one. I’ve only had it a few months, and time will tell if it will hold up well, but am very happy with it so far. I still haven’t used all the attachments, but give me time.

Years ago i had a braun processor. I have also had kitchen aid, brevetti, 2 cuisinart. While cleaning out a cabinet i ran across directions for all and remembered why i liked a processor at all, it was the original braun that was the most successful. The last cuisinart i had i couldn’t even get the lid off and on. I love the ease of getting the bowl in place and the lid goes on so easily. (important w/ arthritis ) the fact that it has the bottom seal and no liquid escapes makes clean up a snap. The directions are easy to understand. From biscuit to pie crust, to noodle dough, to sous chef ,this is the one.

I think this food processor is discontinued but there are a couple of things that i would have liked to know before i bought this. The manual says that it is dishwasher safe but we stuck it in the dishwasher and it warped the lid so that it wouldn’t go on anymore. I called customer care who blamed it on the dishwasher but let off when i pointed out that the manual says that it is dishwasher safe. They don’t stock replacement parts so they had to be ordered from [. on my dime and then they reimbursed me. It worked out really quickly but i wish they could have just sent me a replacement. All that said i would recommend air dry in the dishwasher. ]

We had a cuisinart blender/food processor machine that constantly leaked from the bottom and top. It finally started to die when the gears no longer made connection – secretly i was happy. The machine was loud and again ours leaked like crazy. In my research i came across this machine and we love it.We use it quite a bit since it is a) quiet, b) powerful, c) plenty of mixing/chopping/slicing/whipping options, d) easy to take apart and clean, and e) does not leak. To date we have had no problems and have owned the machine for about one year so if there are maintenance issues or repair issues we have no experience and do not plan on it for a bit.

It’s so super quiet and easy to use i would very much recommend this to my friends and family. I didn’t really want to spend that much money but after reading all the other reviews i took a chance and got it wow. I am so happy i did i am very glad i didn’t waste my money on another loud kitchen aid. I do mean loud, i thought that it might cause hearing loss (no jokes). If you are looking to get the most for your money look no further this baby has it all and more. Quite, easy to use, loads of extra attachment, large bowl to hold 9 cups worth of goodness, very powerful and fast at any task you put in front of it, tons of different speeds (i love that), and did i mention the bowl, it’s one of the best features. It has no opening in the center like most if not all other food processors, that mean if you want to liquefy something (9 cups worth or not) it wont run out the middle like all the other ones do. I love this processor and you will too.

  • Great Food Processor!
  • A versatile workhorse!
  • Simple, easy to use, a good value and very effective

I have been an amazon customers for many years and never written reviews before. I am so pleased with this purchase and decided to put my review online so when you read all reviews you can make an intelligent decision on this product. I ordered this processor on 8/4/2010 late evening and got it on 8/6/10. I unpacked it and shredded my whole bag of broccoli with ease. The machine is very easy to use and clean. It is very quite, light weight, and well made. I never own a regular size processor before but am glad that i made my decision to purchase this item based on all reviews that i read from this item. Price is great and the product works well. I am pleased that this machine is not made in china.

We have had this fp for about four weeks now, and i am very satisfied with it. It replaced a several years old 12-cup cuisinart model, when the lid broke (part of the plastic around the spring locking mechanism broke off, rendering it useless). My favorite thing about this fp is that it does. So far, i’ve blended salsa, gazpacho and cake batters without incident. My old fp used to leak around the lid and through the center if it was filled any more than 1/3 full. This one can be filled to capacity without a single drop leaking out. Now i don’t have to puree stuff in multiple batches. I also am a fan of the variable speed settings, though it takes a bit of practice to learn what speed is best for which kinds of foods. Now i can actually use the machine to chop or mince vegetables, without worrying about accidentally pureeing them (or worse, pureeing some while leaving others in big chunks stuck to the sides of the bowl). I took a chance and made mashed potatoes on the lowest setting – they came out just fine, not gluey or overworked at all. It’s easy to clean, relatively quiet and comes with a ton of accessories. I haven’t used the juicer attachment yet, and i wish it came with a thicker slicing blade, but other than that, it’s a great appliance.

I bought this from amazon because it’s rare to find a product with such a high percentage of 5 star reviews. Well, the reviews were right. It’s quiet, well balanced, and a dream to clean. My favorite feature is the sealed shaft for the blade and slicers so you can fill it to the top with liquid and it doesn’t overflow. The bowl is engineered perfectly with slight ridges on the inside that somehow keeps food from riding up the sides. I have to admit that the amount of attachments was slightly overwhelming when i first opened the box but those feelings settled once i used it a couple of times. I am quickly growing to love this machine but it took some trial and error to get here. By that i mean, take the time to sacrifice a few ingredients you often cook with for the sake of your sanity.

I brought this after reading the reviews of multiple food processors and mainly for kneading dough, i had read it but was pleasently surprised at how quiet this machine is and does work with such ease. I was shredding carrots and before i knew my whole jar was full, and no noise. You can actually even talk on phone while running this processor. I used fine slicing for onions and it was just great, just the way i wanted them. I have been using it more frequently than i have ever used my blender because of the ease to use and it actually does the work for you as you want it, so there is no frustration. The only equipment i use besides this now is my magic bullet to make small amounts of smoothies for kids.

Been using our old braun for 10yrs. The bowl for it broke down (not the machine yet). So we thought of getting the machine itself. (bowl cost here was from $35-40). Very good quality machine that will hopefully last another 10yrs. It seems like all marketing ploy to stop selling these machines in the market as seen from other reviews.

Just realized my braun is 6 years old. I like it although i wish it was larger. I always buy braun appliances if i can find them. I once lived in germany and when it comes to quality, no one beats the germans. Sorry to hear they are giving up on the us. I reread reviews and realize i am not getting the use out of my machine that is possible and will change my ways. I mostly use ‘old’ methods because i don’t have to research the new. That means i have been cooking for 70 years and still do a lot of things without even thinking about my kitchen aid mixers, food processor and vitamix. My vitamix is still going strong after more than 20 years and i expect someone will be using the braun long after i have departed.

I had an older model braun processor that finally bit the dust after 18 years, so i bought this model three years ago. Not quite as powerful as the first one, but suits my needs perfectly. I like that it has an easy locking mechanism. Just line up the arrows and twist. No need for an instruction book to make it safe. Other favorite thing is the almost infinite variability of speed. Not crazy about the juicer though. I have a braun dedicated juicer that i like better, but that’s a small negative. So, this is actually my second of this model. We bought a beach house recently and i find i can’t do without my processor up there.

Shopped around at physical stores a while before buying this machine unseen based solely on reviews and am not disappointed. Has plenty of power and a wide spectrum of variable speeds. Quality seems on par with most others in this price range but the side by side motor design, variable speeds and reputation set it apart from anything i found in u. Have owned it for a month and used it two or three times a week.

I have had a hard time finding a food processor that is bpa free and will also have enough power to do everything a food processor should. In the past i broke a cuisinart trying to shred cheese, soft cheese. I have an older kitchenaid that i love but its not bpa free. The newer ones are not getting good reviews. As they are expensive, i don’t want to take the chance. This one has a sealed bowl which is new for me but comes in very handy, for fruits, jellies, soups. Neither one of my other ones were sealed. I shredd cheese in this and it worked without breaking the machine.

I cannot tell you how much i love this food processor. Previously, the only processor i had owned was a cuisinart mini-prep that left half of the material juiced while the other half was still huge pieces. Why bother?the braun does everything i had hoped for and more. Some specific features that i love:the motor is very powerful, and has shown no signs of fatigue despite putting it through some pretty serious paces. It takes at least 10 minutes of nearly continuous processing a pretty high speed to make almond butter – no problemcleanup is a breeze. I put everything in the dishwasher except for the main chopping blade. All of the other pieces are dishwasher safe. Just make sure to remove the grating/slicing insert from the wheel and rinse first – if not, some of the leftover bits can get stuck. I even put things on the bottom rack but i never use the drying function, and my dishwasher doesn’t get very hot. Keep it to the top rack if you do.

This is a terriffic machine. My wife and i had never owned a food processor nor posessed knowledge about them. In an attempt to learn more, i went online to amazon and read customer reviews/feedback for the many food processors sold there. It was a lengthy, tiring process, but ultimately very helpful and enlightening because it gave us insight as to what the machines do and what to expect – good and bad – from the various name-brand machines. We settled on this braun because the favorable ratings and reviews submitted by all the satisfied customers exceeded those of all the other brands in our price range. I’m happy to say we are elated by our choice. The machine is easy to assemble and operate; very powerful; easy to disassemble and clean (we used the dishwasher and all the parts came out sparkling); is attractive and compact; comes with an assortment of blades and a juiceing bowl; and best of all – it runs quietly. We had no trouble at all conversing with each other in normal speaking tones over the motor sounds last week as we worked together in our kitchen to process three large pumpkins into pumpkin pie filling, for freezing. The large bowl and lid fit together well and tightly (there are alignment arrows on each piece, showing how they go together), and there are no leaks between the lid and bowl during operation. I’d highly recommend this food processor to anyone, with no reservation at all.

Electronically controlled with variable speed

While i’d read everyone elses reviews, and knew this was a good machine, one thing i didn’t realize was that it runs so quietly. Perhaps my favorite thing about this processor is that it’s completely enclosed. There’s no leakage around the center pin if you overfill the bowl. Perhaps the one negative i would have is that the bowl was able to hold more. My most common use for it to-date is to make pie crust. I can’t make a crust that uses more than 2c flour, and that’s a drag.

After reading all the other reviews, i purchased the braun food processor knowing that it is a discontinued product, with only a 1 year warranty. It does everything that other reviewers have indicated. Easy to lock the lid and bowl into place; easy to clean; quiet; convenient single 9-cup bowl rather than nested bowls, and yes the bowl is sealed and does not leak. That is a big plus; has 15 speeds; a pulse button is located in the center of the on/off knob and its pulse speed is directly related to the speed range selected from the speed control knob; and the entire unit stores neatly on the kitchen counter top. The total height of the unit, including the mounted bowl and pusher is a tad under 14 inches. We also found the juicer bowl to work nicely when using medium sized oranges and firmly holding the sliced orange against the rotating cone. This processor is actually fun to use. We easily pureed our home grown tomatoes to make several gallons of tomato sauce using the primary slicing blade with short blasts of the pulse button in combination with the speed dial set at 10. Experimentation with the speed settings is the key. We are still learning and having fun.

Great processor, lots of power, lots of attachments however whatever you do do not ever put the standard chopping blade in the processor without seating it. It will get stuck and wedged in the side causing you to have to buy another bowl and chopping blade. The second time by accident when hubby put them in the sink together like this. Can get very expensive after a whilealso the egg whipping attachment is made of plastic so think again about using it to whip egg whites. They will whip to peaks to rapidly and i heard the plastic molecules resemble oil molecules causing eggs to over whip then collapse into a watery mess.

Got this as a gift for my significant other as we haven’t had a full size food processor for 10 years. Last one was chewed to bits by our dog (mastiff, go figure not a cut on him but the blades were completely gone). I shopped around a lot before deciding on this one, i considered the big ‘b’ unit but it was 3x the price and the reviews were only so-so. Works nearly silently, haven’t found a job it can’t do. Wish the trim was some other color than baby blue but i store it out of sight so it really doesn’t matter. Get one of these w/ realistic expectations for a midline food processor and you won’t be dissapointed.

Definitely worthy of 5 starswe had a cuisinart for many years. The interior parts where all the safety catches and pins go had become moldy (you can’t clean the inside where the safety parts go)it looked ‘unhealthy’ so we threw it out with the intention of buying another, why we didn’t just buy a new bowl assembly i don’t really know – but i am glad we didn’ti tend to be brand loyal – the cuisinart lasted well – so it would have been normal to just buy another. I assumed that all the cumbersome (and annoying) safety interlocks were normal these days. Then i started browsing reviews on the big names – after seeing many ‘not as good as they used to be’ type reviews, i looked for an alternative and stumbled upon this braun, and the many good reviews it was getting. I/we bought one (here from amazon marketplace) at full price, and are very happy with it, despite not being a name in food processors (i always thought braun were shavers etc) this unit is excellent. This braun is very versatile with the numerous accessories included, easily as powerful as cuisinart, and the multi speed is very useful. The bowl is much more sturdy too. The only negative is the larger footprint on the counter – but gone are all the annoying safety interlocks – this has just the one – a part of the lid that protrudes to mate with the base. Another huge plus is that the blade/bowl is sealed – so you can use the full size without leaks (like cuisinart)the (main) blade is not as thick as the one we had on the cuisinart – but it is not noticeable in use – and we have given it some tough jobs alreadyreally we have no complaints or niggles at all – it stays on the counter and is used daily for many tasks. Why are braun pulling out of the us market?.

This is our first food processor, and we’ve been using it for about 9 months now. So far, it is working great. We use it to grate and shred cheese with no problems. We have used the dough hook for creating pastry doughs. We have not used the whip or the juicer yet. I do wish that it came with two different size slicers (thin and thick), but i’ve managed on just the one. Our food processor gets used at least once a week, if not more. I hesitate to offer any criticisms, since i haven’t used another food processor for comparison purposes and i’m still learning how to use the processor effectively.

Powerful 600 watt motors for Processing

Chopping and grating: worked very well for chopping onions, mincing garlic, shredding cabbage, thinly slicing potatoes, and chop spinach very finely (like for pesto). I also grated part-skim mozzarella, following manufacturer instructions and using both the fine and coarse shredding blade and got beautiful results, long shreds (not little chopped pieces) with each. I don’t know what kind of cheese the reviewer who had problems was using, but worked well for me. Dough: for a recipe that called for about 1 lb of flour (4 c), this worked great. It danced a little when kneading, but it was easy to steady and since the whole processing time was only 90 seconds, i can keep my hand on the machine for that amount of time. It was certainly faster than making the dough by hand, and i didn’t end up with a counter coated with flour. Juice: this played no role in my decision to purchase, but i actually like this feature. I don’t have room for a juicer in addition to a food processor, and while it’s not going to be something i use every day, it’s nice to have it available. I also appreciate that juicing capability means that the machine can accommodate liquids better than many food processors. Capacity: the bowl holds a large head of cabbage, shredded, with the slicing attachment on.

I was looking for exactly this sort of kitchen machine. My mum has a similar one back in germany and i found this so convenient to have one machine in the kitchen which is able to do pretty much everything: knead dough, make smoothies, slice and shred veggies, herbs, etc. I wanted to avoid to have a zillion kitchen tools all over my smallish kitchen. Unfortunately there a not many choices one it comes to a good all-rounder. So far i have prepared some pizza dough in it and made my morning smoothies. Also a really good feature is that you can put all the items in the dishwasher. (review written by nathalie, wife).

I haven’t used this braun multiquick 3 k650 kitchen machine 600 watt much yet, but it seems to work well. I had, but never used, a food processor before so i can’t compare it against other models or brands. It’s nice that everything is dishwasher-safe. I do have some quibbles:there is no storage of any kind for the blades. Most of them are small enough to keep in the bowl, but the chopper blade (arguably the most dangerous) and mixing/kneading blade don’t. Fortunately, the chopper comes with a safety guard. It comes with a nice assortment of blades, and a juicer, but for some reason you have to buy the coarse slicing insert braun combimax food processor coarse slicing insert 7000-490 separately. The ‘french fry system’ braun combimax food processor french fry system 3200-634 is also separate, but i wasn’t interested in that. I would recommend this unit to anyone who is cooking for a small- to medium-size group. I was able to puree nine baking potatoes in one go, but just barely.

We quickly broke a cheap black and decker food processor that failed at most tasks. This one couldn’t be more different. The attachments are useful and well-made. The gears appear to be faultless. My wife has never thanked me more for any gift i have given her. She uses it about every other day. It perfectly and quickly:-whips cream and butter. -chops carrots/shreds veggies. -mixes dough (really, we are not replacing our broken hand mixer). -shreds cheese (we no longer buy it shredded. It is better fresh and without the potato starch and other fluffing agents). -is cleaned in the dishwasherdon’t settle for anything less or be fooled by anything that claims to be better. This is truly the pinnacle in kitchen appliances.

It is silent, also works with small batches, even do it is a big bowl. One down part is, the citrus press does not work well for me. Easy cleanup, just rinse under running water with a drop of soap and you are ready to go again. Knives are very sharp, watch out when drying or changing them out. Whipping blade works great to. Still have to use the grating blades, but they look capable as well. This is a good machine and i would recommend it to anyone.

My husband and i received a braun food processor as a wedding gift and we loved it. It lasted almost 22 years before finally giving out (very impressive). The price of the braun was more than we’d hope to spend, but after weighing pros and cons with other models, we decided to go for it. The unit shipped quickly and we eagerly put it to use. We can’t say we like it as much as the older model, but we do like it. The unit is very light in weight, which is a plus, but unlike its predecessor the interior of the bowl isn’t smooth, making cleanout a bit more difficult – – no more swiping with a spatula to get every last bit. And the blade for egg whites is a joke, which is a big disappoinment. The older unit came with a metal whisk that whipped even a single egg white to perfection; the plastic blade offered on this model makes only a froth – – it’s useless (it may work for whipping cream; we have yet to try that). Other than those two complaints, in our opinion this is still the best food processor on the market. Large working bowl, variable speed, a variety of blades, light weight – – what’s not to like.

Through the years i have killed 4 food processors, 2 kitchenaid’s 2 cuisinart’s. Figured it was time to try a new brand. I received the braun today, it did everything well that i tried today except for slicing salami it completely failed at that (but i don’t slice salami very often so no big deal). Today i chopped some cilantro, onion & garlic for some guacamole, i then added my avocado and made some nice chunky guacamole. Did a great job & didn’t need to keep opening the lid to push the ingredients down to process. I used the fine shredder attachment to shred cheddar cheese. It did a very good job, the speed control worked well for this, i had a lot less waste using the braun, with other machines a lot of cheese would get stuck on the top and not shred and turn into a gooey mess, i only had a small amount of cheese that didn’t shred and what was left was still firm and usable. I used the slicer for carrots and it did a very good job slicing. The juicer worked well and didn’t spray juice every where. The french fry attachment works ok, it made pretty tiny fry’s i will need to work with it more.

Sealed bowls to prevent leakage

This is not my first food processor. I had others before, and like other reviewers mine was also noisey and difficult to handle. So, when i decided to splurge on a processor and it was going to be the best on the block. I selected this model based on the high reviews here, epinions and other websites. It took me awhile to save for this model, but it has been well worth the wait. I used this machine yesterday crumbling vanilla wafer cookies and walnuts for a rum ball recipe. I had it on the highest setting (14) and it was so quiet. I was bracing myself for some sound deafing noise but it never came. This machine is a lot quieter than my blender and i got that one based on high reviews also. It’s compact enough to go inside a cabinet but it stays on my counter because i want any excuse to use it.

This is the best item i have purchased all year long. I wonder why it took me so long as i have pondered this for many months. It is powerful, quite and makes such easy work of the most diffcult taks for me. I make a lot of falafal from scratch and grinding all those chickpeas took a lot of time and noise.Now i make relegate my small all purpose grinder to the work it was meant to handle. For someone who battles arthritis and trigger syndrome in my fingers it has been a real blessing. I recommend this to everyone serious about cooking.

I’ve used it to make smoothies, soups, whip cream, citrus juice, cookie dough, cake batter, and chopped vegetables for salsas and whatnot. I really like the simple design and it’s fairly easy to clean. The bowl is completely sealed so no messes from changing or pulling attachments out when it’s full of food. Those germans know how to make food processors.Also, my mother-in-law has one and she loves hers as well. It would have been nice to get some recipes with this machine that illustrate the many different ways to use it. That is my only reason for knocking a star off.

The sealed center drive is the best on the market. Total variable speedmakes this unit the most adaptive to all food processing needs. Cusinart and kitchen aid have nothing to equal what this machine will do. And while doing it make it much simpler for the user. It is sick and wrong that the parant company of this world class machine will no longer market it in the usa (and parent co. ) and seems to be making it difficult for owners to get replacement parts. Not that many will be needed as it is so well enginered. But bowls and lids can be droped and broken.

I got this based on the reviews which i think are correct. I like all the components, even a juicer (which i haven’t tried yet) and find it easy to handle and care for. So far i used it for shredding potatoes for potato dumplings and slicing various vegetables for soups and and a casserole. It’s a light weight machine which makes it easy to pull out of the storage. The only issue i had with it was that when i cut carrots the white shredding disc became discolored, orange. After multiple washed the color intensity was reduced but it is still slightly tinted which is a little annoying but i know it’s clean so i’ll just deal with it.

I have an old food processor that i have used for many years. This is a definite improvement over that one. This has many attachments and i love that it has different speeds. It has a large capacity bowl. My only complaint is that the pusher doesn’t push all of the product and i end up with a big blob of whatever i’m processing at the end. This may happen with all processors, i don’t know as this is only my second one to own and work with. Overall, i am satisfied with it.

You are always in complete control of your food preparation

This thing has sharp bladesi have always wanted a food processor, since a friend bought one. Now i find i’m in control of the kitchen and have rekindled my cooking skills, i decided to buy one. I did my research and, clearly this braun is the best on the market for kitchen use/cost. So far it has done everything i wanted making preparation so easy. I like making cakes and the braun makes the fat/sugar prep so easy. I’ve also made crumble/cobbler mix and pastry. So much easier than by hand, even if there’s a bit more washing up. As winter approaches, i’m thinking soups and stews etc will be a lot easier too. I did make one meat/mushroom pasta sauce which was easy.

Chops and mixes very good ( haven’t tried kneading bread yet). Variable speed and pulse make processing different things easy. Cleanup easy as components are dishwasher safe. Con: seems braun isn’t supporting their food processor. Trying to buy variable slicer item #f3200-650 as per an earlier review; seems impossible to obtain this though the variable carrier item f3200-649 is available, a good resource for various braun attachments is: [. would give it 5 stars if i felt more confident that i could find parts in the future. What the heck, it gets 5 stars anyway. ]

This food processor came with 4 shredding/slicing blade inserts, but the manual showed 5 (and indicated that the coarse slicing blade was not included, though shown). I wanted to get this blade, and the vendor put me in touch with procter and gamble who import braun. They informed me that braun has discontinued manufacturing of all food processors, but did give me an online supplier of parts, including the blade i wanted. The machine works very well. It is very quiet and powerful and does a marvelous job of grating or slicing potatoes, onions and carrots, but didn’t do so well with broccoli (too soft). It really needs a container for storing all the accessories that come with it, but the machine itself is quite compact, making it feasible to leave it on the counter ready for use anytime. Everything except the motor unit can be washed in the dishwasher, but some parts (like the main bowl) have areas that trap water and therefore do not come out dry.

I’ve been using this for a while. It has taken me some time to get to know which blades work best for things but i now know this beast pretty well. My biggest problem is the vibration. If i don’t hold onto the machine while it’s running, it will quickly vibrate itself off of the counter. So, if you are adding food using the chute, food has to be added with your one free hand which can get a little messy since food can come flying out of the chute while it’s uncovered. Other than that, no big issues. It’s pretty easy to clean and store and seems to have plenty of power. I lean towards 3 stars instead of 4 but i’m feeling generous today. If you wouldn’t mind the vibration (which i have not exaggerated at all) then you would most likely be happy with this machine. If i had it to do over, i would not buy it.

We did a lot of research on different food processors and went to stores and inspected the features of many different models. There was one thing that really bothered us about most of the processors on the market. They were all too tall to fit under upper cabinets on our counters and too tall to fit inside of any of our cabinet storage spaces without sacrificing huge amounts of limited cabinet space by removing shelves for clearance. We had initially dismissed the braun product, but our needs quickly led us back to it. The other feature that sold us was the lack of a complex safety lockout system built into the handle of the food receptacle. In our research we read repeated accounts of food becoming trapped inside of these inaccessible mechanisms, featured in some of the most popular and heavily advertised brands, creating a sanitary nightmare, as well as an unappealing appearance. That is unacceptable in this house. The braun machine has it figured out, a machine that is low in profile, with the safety lockout device cleverly built into the base unit, away from the food receptacle. We are not big food processors, making mainly smoothies and soups, but we do these often. We can’t testify to abilities in dough making, veggie slicing or any of the many other activities one can theoretically apply this machine to.

Update 1/28/2017: i was using the braun this morning to chop vegetables and thought again how much i adore this machine. It is one of two appliances that always sit on my counter, and the other is the coffee maker. It gets used several times a week and has for the last 5+ years. I could not recommend it more highly. Original review: this appliance is quiet and powerful. The design allows me to get the blade out of the way so that i can pour, stir, scrape, etc with no hassles. The multi-speed settings give me good control over what’s happening in the bowl. I have owned it for more than a year, using it several times every week. I have used it for chopping, mixing, slicing and making peanut butter and small batches of pastry dough. It has been completely reliable and up to every task i have given it.

It works great and the variable 15 speeds are a big plus. It is easy to assemble, use, and clean. I put all the attachments in a small basket and it keeps well together. I love everything that i have done with it. It is very good at keeping liquids contained. This is a big factor for me. I chop a lot of tomatoes when i make salsa and my cuisinart would fill up quickly and then it could overflow. This processor is contained, no spilling. It has chopped, mixed, shredded, and juiced very well.

My old food processor finally bit the dust, and i replaced it first, about six months ago, with a top-of-the-line ka. It was in the $250 range, as i recall. It was heavy; it required an immense amount of space to store; it was finicky–really, who has time to pull out the instruction booklet every time you use an appliance?.The lid alone had three pieces, all of which had to be in perfect alignment for it to operate. I threw it away to keep anyone else from having to suffer with it scarred by that mistake, i was reluctant to jump right into another online purchase, but out of desperation, i gave it one more try and purchased this baby. And i am so very, very glad that i did. It is light; it is quiet (everyone has remarked on it); it shreds and chops perfectly; and using it is as intuitive as possible. The lid only has one piece, and because it has a horizontal, rather than vertical, footprint, it takes much less storage (because the bowl and lid can be stored in place, on the machine; with a vertical footprint, that configuration is too tall for most cabinets). I have used it for regular chopping jobs as well as for grinding chicken, and it has made short work of everything.

About 25 years ago, my wife and i bought a braun food processor. We used it for over 23 years, replacing the bowl once and the stalks that held the cutting disks about three times. We only gave it up when it started leaking oil. We replaced it with a cuisinart that didn’t have multiple speeds and did have a complicated and largely inscrutable lid locking system that ultimately failed–we needed to stick a screwdriver into the lid to make it work. So we found this braun, which is similar to but an improvement on our old one, and it’s great. Very lightweight, the bowl and lid simply snap into place, there’s infinite speed control, and the cutting disks and stalks have been redesigned to be much sturdier.

I got this food processor a few weeks ago. So far i have tried making pumpkin soup, potato pancakes, and bread dough in it. I have also tried chopping raw chicken and chopping and slicing vegetables. The machine is a lightweight compared to the kitchenaide i used to have, but for the most part that is ok. Pluses: i like the variable speed but i’m not sure that having that changes the final results. Having a truly deep work bowl is very nice. It did a good job of grinding the chicken (which was partly frozen). The bread dough came out fine. The fine grater disk was awesome for making the potato pancakes. Minuses: the thing that disappointed me is the slicing disks.

I knew my wife needed a new food processor when i saw her drag out her 20 year old model. I researched food processors on amazon and saw all the familiar names (cusinart, etc). Then i came across the braun and began reading the reviews. All reviews were very good and it sounded like a great piece of equipment. I bit the hook and bought it for christmas, not knowing if my wife really wanted a new food processor. It is everything advertised. Quiet, powerful, variable speed is great, easy to clean, great attachments, quality construction. The only way they could improve this product would be to include a storage caddy for the attachments. Glad i picked this model and would recommend it to others.

Black & Decker EHC650B Ergo 3-Cup Food Chopper : I love this, had my doubts but didn’t regret it at all!

I bought this for my wife about a year ago. We have a high quality food processor that it great but it takes up counter space and it is a hassel to take it out. Therefore, we only really use it when we have a big batch of something. My wife tried a couple of those ‘slap shot’ devices, but they always would break after a short time. I had tried another motorized mini-chop that cost about $14 at a local store but it just didn’t work very well. For $20 i thought i would give the b&d a try and now we both use it and love it. It is really small and light weight and it is very easy to grab it and use it. Clean up is super easy too, i just add some water to the bowl and a drop of soap and let it run for a couple of seconds. I rinse out the bowl, wipe down the motor housing and i’m good to go. It does a great job at chopping and it offers a lower speed which is great for chopping succulent vegetables like green peppers.

Love it, bought one for me and one for my parents. I first purchased a hand food chopper thinking that an electric one would be annoying because i don’t have conveniently placed electrical outlets in my old weirdly designed kitchen, and i was worried it would be difficult to clean. The bottom parts are dishwasher safe. The top part you can take a paper towel with some soap or a sponge to and clean it very easily and i am one of those people often lovingly referred to as a ‘germaphobe’. The outlet thing – i actually fill it up and stand near an outlet next to my fridge because it is so much more convenient. I find myself cooking more because i bought it. I dropped it last time i used it so next paycheck i will be buying another one. It’s plastic so don’t drop it. I cracked the plastic bottom when i dropped it.

I got this hoping i could dice and chop things like onions, celery, water chestnuts, carrots, bell peppers. I kind of assumed that this would end up pureeing the vegetables instead of chopping and dicing but i’m lazy so i took a chance on this bad boy. Jeez was i sure wrong about the puree part. I noticed the blades are not so close together so i thought that maybe diced chunks may come out better and it sure turned out right. All you have to do is pulse the food chopper until the desired size is attained. The 3 cup bowl comes in handy too. Be careful when washing the blades. I learned when i first washed the blades and sliced my finger deeply.

Amazon Renewed Hurom HU-100 Masticating Slow Juicer : I love this juicer

I love this juicer, it is my baby. You know you have a good juicer when the pulp comes out dry. The clean up is a bit tedious, but that goes with juicing.

I’m extremely happy with my hurom juicer. To me, it’s the best of both worlds between the fast juicing breville and the slow juicing green star. The hurom is a fast juicer, super easy cleanup, fun and easy to use, and i love it. I get plenty of juice in one session, which is great. It quickly and efficiently juices greens like kale and romaine while flawlessly juicing cucumbers, apples, and other “watery” fruits. The pulp varied from dry (hearty leafy greens, like kale) to semi-moist (romaine, apples, etc). The juice typically had little foam, but it would depend on what i juiced to determine that. I like to strain my juice quickly with a nut milk bag after making it anyway, so if there is a little pulp or foam on it, it gets held back when straining. I have three juicers: green star, breville and the hurom.

I was so impressed with their commercial, and it makes sense to me to get a slow juicer, for the quality is so much better, but boy it is a pain to use, well, to clean really. It does simple things very easily (like apples, berries, parsley, greens believe it or not) but throw anything with some stingy texture (like celery, or mango, or pineapple) and it clogs up on you. I love the quality of the juice, but when i am taking it apart, decongesting it and putting it back together to continue my juicing, i am thinking if i would have been better off buying the breville. I cannot say you get more juice from the hurom than from the breville, because i have only used this one. Great juice quality, but you pay for it in time and patience.

I can’t believe the things i can do with it that i couldn’t do in the past with other machines – nut milk, fibrous veggies, you name it, i’ve been juicing it with the hurom. I’ve made smoothie-like juices, my own version of v-8 (without all the sodium), even a blueberry “jelly. ” i love the fact that the mortar and pestle press my fruits and veggies instead of shredding them. I read a lot before buying and this machine was said to deliver more vitamins and more actual juice from a single piece of fruit than other machines. Having seen how it works, i’m certain it does. It also doesn’t take up a lot of space on my counter, which was a total necessity for me – small space and all. And it cleans up easily, which is nice when you are totally lazy, like i am.

  • Almost perfect juicer
  • Happier with it now after using it a while
  • I broke it twice

Hurom HU-100 Masticating Slow Juicer, White (Certified Refurbished)

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Using Hurom’s cold-pressing system, 35% more juice is extracted from your foods than with traditional high-speed juicers, leaving less and drier pulp
  • Hurom’s patented Slow Squeezing TechnologyTM (SST) gently squeezes ingredients, preserving natural taste & nutrients lost by high-speed juicers that grind and crush
  • The Hurom masticating juicer can easily process fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, wheatgrass, nuts and soy to make a variety of juices, milks, sauces, marinades, even baby food

I bought the hurom slow juicer after much investigation into it and other juicers capable of juicing wheatgrass, along with fruits and veggies. It has turned out to be a fantastic juicer. I have had it for about 2 weeks now, and i use it every day, sometimes twice a day. I also have a juice man ii centrifugal juicer and while the jmii is faster at accepting material, it doesn’t do as good a job as the hsj. The jmii doesn’t do greens well, if at all. The hsj does a fantastic job at juicing loose material such as sprouts, leafy greens, wheatgrass, etc. Also getting more juice out of the material than the centrifugal type. You will have to spend more time cutting your material (fruits, veggies, etc. ) and i have found that stringing things like celery help to go a long way to keeping the process simple and issue free. Personally, i enjoy the time i spend cutting my veggies and fruits, kinda zen like.

I think if i had a perfect juicer, it would be my maid or butler making me the juice and they’d have to clean it up. That being said, i’ve read all of the reviews here and have learned a lot about this juicer. I’ve juiced carrots and beets and cilantro and beet greens and kale without much of a problem. I knew enough about the juicer after the reviews to cut the fibrous stuff into smaller pieces. I figured out that pouring about three sixteen ounce glasses of water through the juicer with it running when i finished juicing made cleanup easier. The first time i did carrots it took a while to clean the screen but pouring the water through made that much easier.

For the last four years i’ve used a centrifugal juicer and always wanted a masticating juicer, but never bought one because i knew some of them had problems juicing fruits, and also that they’re very slow. So, when i saw the advertisement for this “slow” juicer that was fast and which could juice both leafy greens and fruits equally well, i was very excited. I raptly watched the video demonstrations of its capabilities and ordered it promptly. Some of its purported advantages of extremely dry pulp, more juice, little to no foam, etc. Have fallen far short of the promises made. I notice no increased amount of juice, the foam is absolutely no less than it was with a centrifugal juicer, and unlike my trusty centrifigual juicer the hurom does a lousy job of juicing greens. Just try to juice a leaf of kale and you’ll find it gets all wound up around the screw that is supposed to be chewing it up. I have to stop, put it in reverse, which makes the top come off, then unplug it, stick my hands down around the screw and try to get some of the stuck kale out. And, if you are going to juice a green like kale, do it last or anything you try to juice afterwards will also get stuck around the screw with the kale and not get juiced.

The hurom is an amazing juicer. I am happy with my purchase and there quick delivery process. I am new to juicing and now all i think is what to juice next.

I use this juicer twice a day. I juice wheatgrass, kate, chard, lemons, limes, fennel – everything. The three posts holding the top of the unit on broke off when the chute was blocked with long fibers from fennel. It bound up and also broke the basket. Warning: cut your greens small. They replaced it immediately and the customer service was excellent. But last night i broke the little white gear inside the top that directs the juice to one side the tailings out the other.

I’ve had the hurom slow juicer for a bit over a year, and i absolutely love it. Whether i’m doing greens or soft fruit, i end up with beautiful, tasty juice. Some people complain about the pulp content with this juicer, and i find that if you put produce in slower or run the juice through the juicer a second time, pulp content is significantly lower. Since i have zero counter space in my kitchen, an old-school masticating juicer simply wasn’t an option for me; this one takes up less than a square foot of counter space. If you’re in the market for a high-quality juicer, this is the one to buy.

I don’t regret buying this juicer at all. I’ve owned it for several months and i use it nearly daily, sometimes twice a day, for vegetable and fruit drinks. I’ve made peanut butter with it too and intend to try it with other approved recipes that are outlined in the book. The parts are sturdy and the machine is quiet. This model is refreshingly efficient and wastes very little of the vegetables and fruit i put in. When the inevitable day comes when the machine stops working, i’ll certainly buy another onethe slight and rather personal annoyance concern is that when putting in items like lettuce and kale, the machine squeaks — but this is due to the texture of the thinly-cut lettuce and not anything wrong with the machine. Mixing lettuce with wet or crunchy things like cut apple pieces or carrots gets rid of that squeak immediately.

I’ve had this juicer for over 6 months now (and have been using it about every other day) and i absolutely love it. I actually bought mine used, although it looked like the previous owner probably only used it a few times. The juicer is still going strong, and i’m as happy with it as when it first arrived. I will update this review if i ever have any problems. First, here are a few general comments on juicers based on the research i did when deciding which one to buy:centrifugal juicers (ones that have a blade that spin around at high speed, for instance the jack lalanne or breville fountain) are the cheapest, and they work quite well on hard fruits/vegetables such as apples, carrots, and celery (in fact, i’ve heard they have a better yield than masticating juicers for these types of fruits/vegetables). I previously had the jack lalanne, and it was great for the occasional delicious fresh juice. However, i noticed that i had trouble getting a decent yield for softer fruits such as berries, and also leafy greens such as kale and spinach. Once i got more serious about juicing almost every day, and with more varied ingredients including leafy greens, it seemed i was wasting the money i spent on good quality produce with a poor yield. Masticating juicers such as the hurom operate by crunching/squeezing out the juice at a slow rate per minute.

This is the first juicer i’ve ever owned. I wanted to purchase the omega 8003, but it wasn’t available and the merchant suggested this juicer as it was just coming out and said that it was the newest and best juicer design. I have not been disappointed. I have been juicing most every day since august 2009, so that’s a good 6 months so far. It juices leafy greens and hard vegetables alike with no problems. I do find that with lettuce and spinach i either have to use the tamper to push it down or chase it with a carrot and then the auger grabs the carrot and everything goes through. The item title says it’s a “slow” juicer, but i find that it’s very fast and steady with little foam or noise. I would say that excluding veggie preparation i have 32 oz of juice in less than 3 minutes. I also like that there is a “kill-switch” in that the upper white part that you push the food through has to be locked into place before the machine will turn on. The only problems i have with it is that it gets plugged up when i juice pineapple and i have to cut celery very small because that tends to plug it up too.

A friend of mine bought the hurom hu-100 from amazon and said it was fantastic. She was a bit dramatic in her descriptive love for it and i attributed it to her “juice fast” high. I bought it several weeks ago and i too adore it. Its very easy to use (one of my main concerns) so easy to clean (down to 3 min. ) i haven’t done a juice fast per se but i lost 4. 5 lbs by simply having a healthy juice for breakfast. The extra few minutes it takes to cut my fruit and veggies down is really not a big deal knowing that this will help with the overall life span of my new juicer. I highly recommend this product.

This juicer is pretty good for a cold press and it is refurbished.

I would consider myself somewhat of an “intermediate juicer”. I previously owned a nice breville centrifugal juicer and was disappointed by the extremely wet pulp and minimal juice, the noise, and the complicated parts to clean. The first time i used my new hurom juicer, i was so amazed at how much juice i got and how dry the pulp was. Keep in mind that if you like to do juice fasts like myself that the juice comes out with some pulp still remaining so i would recommend also purchasing some nut milk bags (or something similar) to strain the juice before you drink it. But the juice is fantastic, delicious, and the colors are much more vibrant than anything i made with the centrifugal. Take the advise of all the reviewers and take time to chop up all your fruits and veggies before juicing. It puts a lot less strain on the motor, increases the amount of juice you get, and increases the lifetime of the juicer. I have not had any problem with it. Juicing spinach, apples, cucumbers, carrots, zucchini, etc. Overall, it is a fantastic product and worth the money.

Having lost over 120 pounds eating whole, nutritious foods and exercising six days a week, cross-training with boot camp, hiking, yoga and pilates, kayaking, snowshoeing, zumba, weight lifting, etc. I’m already pretty darn healthy with boundless energy. I eat primarily a paleo diet, with lots of wild fish, grass-fed beef, organic chicken and tons of vegetables, especially greens like kale, broccoli, etc. Snacks include berries, seaweed, greek yogurt, full-fat cheese and nuts. Some very limited whole grains like brown rice and quinoa and legumes like chick peas and black beans. I am a member of the national weight control registry, which tracks people who have lost a lot of weight and kept it off. This juicer has been my best purchase for my health in years. I had tried a juicer once before and found it a pain in the neck. But — as a breast cancer survivor — i recently watched ‘fat, sick and nearly dead’ and read about the gerson method/cancer therapy, which obviously does not work for everyone but seems to work for some. Having researched the issues with speed blending and centrifugal juicers (heat generated creates nutrient loss), i read countless reviews and determined that this hurom processing method is the best, with the possible exception of the norwalk juicer which is huge, difficult to clean, and costs over $2,400.

Easy to understand and put together. Clean up is not bad but does take a little time.

It juices virtually everything perfectly. Peel the rind off a lemon and it juices better than a citrus juicer. It does greens very well, almost all pulps come out dry without so much as a drop to wring out from it, and it looks gorgeous in a glass. Here’s how it works: you feed your produce into the feed chute and it’s processed by a black acrylic auger against a metal sieve. Basically this means the auger is chewing the produce and pressing the resulting pulp and juice against a metal screen with tiny holes. The pulp is pressed through a pulp chute while the juice is filtered through the holes and into the juice chute. Honestly, i really wanted one of the omega nutrition center juicers, but just watching the videos of making carrot juice on those things was painful. You have to jam it into the feed chute to get the carrots to go in. The amazing thing about this juicer is that the auger pulls carrots in with no effort whatsoever from the user.

I did my research because i’m starting a new journey. I haven’t used my juicer as much as i am slowly and cautiously making food changes in my day to day life. However i love this juicer and i feel better each time i use it and i am looking forward to experimenting with new recipes which calls for the special talents of this machine.

The juicer is fast as described. The only thing i have a problem with is that my apple juice comes out like apple sauce. Maybe i’m doing something wrong?.The juice seems to be pretty thick to me. ***update***ok, i contacted the hurom company directly about my ‘apple sauce’ results. They suggested i use hard apples like fuji, granny and honeycrisp etc. I went out and got some fuji and then tried them in my hurom juicer. I am so glad because i really like fresh apple, carrot and celery.

My daughter (age 24) got one of these and told me about it. I decided to buy one myself, so that when she came home for thanksgiving we could make juice together with it. Wow, what a great thingi love how i can make juice from any organic fruits or vegetables. You can make juice, or you can use the pulp and make things like carrot bread, meatloaf, soy milk, so cooland fun to use, no kidding. I’ve been making all sorts of things this week, and to think how healthy it all is. I made a juice using stringbeans, ginger and apple (i think apple), a citrus blast using all kinds of oranges, meatloaf, two different dips, a couple different green smoothies, whatever you have hanging around can be ‘cold pressed’ to extract the goodness from it, and down the hatch.

Cuisinart DFP-3 Handy Prep 3-Cup Food Processor – I have been looking for something like this

I absolutely love this little food processor. Its plenty big enough for food items i make for the 2 of us and wouldn’t be without the shredder attachment for making coleslaw. It easily stores in my cupboard and i would be lost without it. I highly recommend this little gem.

My mother has some trouble prepping food due to arthritis. I gave her the cuisinart dfp-3 handy prep 3 cup processor as a gift for mother’s day. She is able to process veggies for soups etc. I couldn’t be more pleased, and mom loves her handy size food processor.

Had a larger cuisinart food processor for 27 years and it worked great, until it finally broke. This smaller 3 cup version cannot compete with my 27 year old version. The blades ride up a little high and a lot of the food just sits at the bottom, just under the spinning blades, and does not get processed. I find i have to manually chop all that this food processor cannot reach, which defeats the purpose. Also, the materials especially the clear container, seem flimsier than my old one. Not sure if this is because it is a smaller, less sturdy version or if it is just not made as well as it use to be. That said, i can live with the decrease in material quality, but the fact that the blades ride high and leave a lot unprocessed is the reason for the lower rating.

I thought i made a mistake getting the small cuisinart food processor but i changed my mind when i started to use it. It’s actually perfect for food prep for two people. A bigger one would be a waste of space. I use the food processor for shredding, grating, slicing, and chopping. Makes meal prep a lot easier for me now that arthritis makes it difficult to hold knives safely. It doesn’t have a 4mm blade to cut vegetables though and i think cuisinart should make one for it. So if you want veggies to show in your homemade bean soup you have to cook the beans and the vegetables separately or the vegetables will disappear into the broth before the beans are done. I took a star away from my rating for not having the 4mm blade. However, don’t let that stop you from getting this helpful little jewel.

This ended up being too small to be worth taking out, assembling and hand washing. We’ve ended up using it once or twice, maybe, since we bought it. It’s very easy to hand chop a small amount of food. In the end, that’s what we do instead of the hassle of using this little processor. If i were to buy again, i would get a much larger processor. The processor works just fine, but has many pieces to assemble, wash and store.

I think i must have a cuisinart food processor fetish of some sort. I have six of them, spread out in 2 homes and a third one with wheels and an engine. I am partial to this 3-cup variety, useful and effective for so many things in the preparation of food in the home kitchen, when the job does not justify using one of its big brothers (or sisters, ladies). A batch of bread dough using 1 cup of flour makes two very nice hamburger buns in it, or a 14′ pizza, takes about 1 minute to make. Let the dough rise in a pamd plastic bag on the counter – no muss, no fuss – kneading not needed.

  • Fantastic
  • Great processor, too bad its discontinued
  • Great little machine!

This processor does everything i need it to. I like it’s smaller size and it’s plenty powerful. Once in awhile i need to process something in 2 batches, but my back appreciates not having to lift one of those bigger guys.

We have a larger kitchenaid food processor that is fine — no problems — it is just a bit large. I like to put in a can of tuna and ‘pulse’ it a few times. The cuisinart is great for that. I find myself using it more than the larger one. Really pleased with this product.

This cuisinart is a great little buy. It does pretty much all i want it to do (altho i miss the dough ‘blade’) in a small amount of room. We have a small kitchen and it fits quite nicely. It is so much lighter than the 11 cup one i had previously (duh), so i am comfortable using it more often. I was a little surprised at how much it spews when i use the chute. It almost needs a special container to catch it.

This food processor comes with lots of optional equipment and can be used for many different needs. It is also a good size when preparing for smaller volumes. It is easy to clean and put together too.

I bought this back in 2011, and it’s still going strong.

It works very well for chopping and dicing and i also use it to make smoothies with fruit and protein powder. It doesn’t fit a lot of stuff in it but it’s very small so it’s handy to put in a cabinet and doesn’t take up a lot of space in the dishwasher. I have a small apartment so i will not buy a larger size and just do two batches if neceessary. I’ve had this for a little over a year and use regularly.

I bought this as a gift for my parents. The difference is that this model has a lot of plastic in it’s parts. The shredding disc is made up of plastic except for tiny part that does the shredding, while the 7 cup model the entire disc is made of metal. While shredding cheese the disc will stop if you push down too hard on the cheese when your feeding it into the processor. This works alright for certain things but the 7 cup model is so much better.

Be aware that this is only a 3 cup food processor. That was all i wanted and that is what i received. It is very easy to use and cleans up extremely easily. I’m sorry to report that having used this machine for about a year, it suddenly stopped working. I suspect the motor burned out i used it once or twice a month, not very heavily. I loved it when it worked but i’m disappointed that it broke so soon. I hope other don’t share my experience. In other words, i hope i’m a glitch.

Best food processor i have ever owned – not too big, not too small, but has capacity to slice and shred forever with the attachment disk and a bowl. I love the size – fits right on my counter and is very solid, so it doesn’t slide around. I use it almost every day and consider it the best purchase i have made in a long time of small kitchen appliances.

I have been using my cuisinart 8cup model(older version) for many years and i love it, however, i don’t feel using it when i chop or slice only one onion, and large machine is not good at handling small quantity food. So i bought mini prep chopper for these small jobs and liked it for chopping and mixing but it doesn’t slice or grate. Mini prep was small and light and it was not good at heavier jobs. Then i purchased this handy prep 3cup and it was perfect solution for my purposes. With little more investment, you can have same powerful motor as the larger models and you can have many accessories for chopping, grating and slicing. It has much heavier motor base than mini preps and because of its powerful motor, it sounds quiet. Here are what it does:chopping: choop onions, parmesan cheese and other vegetables with ease. Chop chocolate from small chunks (not from whole bar, though). Slicing/grating: dfp-3 comes with unlimited slicing/grating disc with chute attachment.

Conveniently sized food processor. Functions well and is easy to clean.

Chute attachment for continuous slicing or shredding

We’ve had a larger cuisinart food processer for many years. The bowl finally broke and my wife decided that rather than buy a new bowl that she would like a smaller unit. This one stays on the kitchen counter rather than having to be put in a cubbard when not in use like our old, larger unit. This one is plenty big enough for 2 to 4 people.

Reluctantly purchased one of these to start making homemade food for my daughter. I was nervous because it seemed too small to use for making batches of food but it’s worked so well thus far. I’ve made carrots, sweet potato, banana, apple and peaches and they all come out smooth and free of chunks. If you’re wondering about quantity, i can usually fill up about three oxo tot baby blocks freezer storage containers 2-ounce, set 6, clear, more if i fill it up completely. Outside of baby food, i’ve used it to make pie fillings and chop up ingredients for recipes. I’m definitely not the most domestically inclined person in the world but this thing is super easy to use. Can’t wait to make homemade salsa and pasta sauce in it. My only issue is that it is small for things beyond batches of baby food. , if you’re looking for a good book for baby food recipes, this one (the best homemade baby food on the planet: know what goes into every bite with more than 200 of the most deliciously nutritious homemade baby food. More than 60 purees your baby will love) is great.

Just the right size for small jobs. Wonderful, especially onions. I now, buy a brick of cheese and grate my own, making it less expensive and cheaper per oz. I had a small one once before, but they quit making them until now, with this one. All the other small ones, just chop. I like the grating and slicing feature too. Nice for carrots and celery, too. The name of this appliance is dependable too.

I just love this little cuisinart food processor. After 15 years or so, the wiringin the back went bad and i didn’t want to bother having it fixed – especially once we saw amazon’s price – the lowest i’ve ever seen. I think way back when we bought the first one it was more than what i paid now. We’re a small family and don’t need a really big machine – 3 cups is more than sufficient for my needs. It’s quite powerful and with the two additional blades and the chute attachment it’s everything i need. I also like that it’s small because it’s on the counter and takes up very little space. What would have been a great feature is a retractable cord or a storage area for the cord. Because i kept pushing the machine to the wall, the wiring bent and damaged the cord. Had i not done so, it still would be working now. So, i’ll keep that in mind from now on and not push it so close against the wall.

My husband has had to consume only liquids for the past month (and we still have 3 more weeks to go) because his jaw is wired shut after having surgery done. This food processor is such an incredible blessing. I’ve been able to process soups, smoothies, juices, etc. I actually look forward to using it everyday, multiple times a day. It is extremely powerful, effective, efficient, and fun to use. The set-up and clean-up couldn’t be easier. I will continue using this food processor daily even after my husband is off the liquid diet. It’s great for quickly making salsas, slicing up food bits, or making delicious milkshakes or smoothies. I can’t wait to gift this item to friends/family as well.

Good processor but i wish i bought a bigger one. One annoying thing is that the bowl and cover only fit on one way and you will keep forgetting which way that is.

3-cup work bowl with feed tube; stainless-steel chopping-mixing blade

This is my first ever food processor. Which is a big deal for me being 25. I don’t know anyone else my age that owns one. I originally wanted a gadget that can chop and slice things up for me easier than a mandoline (i’ve used a mandoline and don’t enjoy it so much maybe because i had a scrape accident. ) so i decided to look for a food processor. It doesn’t really chop or slice that well, lol. For chopping, you’d have to be careful or it’ll turn to mush (ok ok, so it is a food processor) and for slicing, i’m just disappointed that it’s only a 2mm and i can’t find a part anywhere for anything bigger. I’ve made a cheesecake crust (crushed together ginger snaps, nuts, etc), used it to froth up egg whites, sliced apples and cucumbers, cookie dough recipes, and a few other things (i know, those are such random stuff). Just examples of what i’ve done. I plan to make more mixed concoctions like hummus. So, though this machine hasn’t satisfied my chopping and slicing needs (now i can shop for more fun gadgets on amazon. ), it’s great for everything else.

Our mini chop broke and i looked for a replacement. There is little out there that is available in the 1 1/2 cup size that we wanted. We settled for the cuisinart dfp-3. Since it was a cuisinart, we were confident of it’s quality and we weren’t disappointed. (we have had cuisinart full size food processors for many years. )although this unit was bigger than we originally wanted, it turned out to be just fine, in fact we were pleased with the added volume. It works well, is well constructed and has a chute that can be used to eject the cut food directly into a bowl. My wife ended up liking it so much we turned around and ordered a second one for the cottage.

Does everything the big one does but in smaller quantities.

I used to have a big food processor but it took up too much space. I went with this one, it’s smallish, but powerful. It has the attachment to shred and slice while shooting it out of the container so there’s not a quantity issue when using it. I can throw and onion in there and it doesn’t turn it to much. I would recommend it to anyone and it’s easy to store.

If you look on cuisinart’s company website, this model is no longer being advertised. That is too bad, because this is a really great item. Nowadays, if you want a 3 cup processor, you can only get one that chops/grinds. This model can do chopping/grinding and slicing/shredding. It comes with a disk that slices/shreds veggies and cheese. There is also the opening at the top so you can drop the food into the processor without having to stop the machine, and take off the top. Of course, since it is a small model, you must cut up the veggies and cheese to fit the opening at the top, but this is not a burden. It has a small footprint on the counter or pantry, which is a must. This is great for couples, small families, or someone who cooks a lot and needs to chop things like garlic, herbs, cheese or make sauces.

I’ve heard so much about the cuisinart food processors. Living alone and working a lot of hours, it’s sometimes easier to grab something quick (aka unhealthy) than come home and chop up vegetables, etc. So, i decided to try this small one because it was inexpensive, compared to the other models. Plus, it had slicer and shredder blades. I made spanikopita in about 15 minutes, start to oven. The spinach was chopped so quickly. I sliced a bunch of peppers and onions in just a few minutes and froze them in small packages for easy weekday cooking. Mushrooms, lemons, zucchini, etc – poof, done. It’s powerfulmy only criticism is that i wish i could order more blades. The slicing disc cuts in pretty thin slices so i wish i could order a medium thickness blade. But, the thin cut veggies cook fast which fits with my goal of quick, healthy cooking so it’s fine.

This little food processor is a replacement for one like it that i had for about thirty years. It is durable, easy to store, easy to clean, does everything i want it to and does it well. I hope to enjoy it for another thirty years.

Comes with slicing disc (2 mm); medium shredding disc

Let me start off by saying that i’ve never owned a food processor. A few weeks ago, i ordered the kitchen aid 3-cup mini-prep. It was a flimsy lightweight little machine. It only had one button–the pulse button–and it stuck so i ended up sending it back. Aside from the defect, i thought it was an okay machine at the time because i had nothing to compare it to. Fortunately, for me, when i sent it back, they were out so i couldn’t exchange it for the same one. I had to shop around all over again for a reasonably-priced, durable mini-processor. It cost $18 more but it was definitely worth itwhat a difference. This is one is super heavyweight and has all kinds of bells and whistles that the other one didn’t have.

The concept is good and it is well executed: a smaller, sturdy version of the time-saving larger food processor. Big food processors make sense because they save a tremendous amount of time doing boring and tiring routines of chopping and slicing for large quantity output. If you are just preparing for for yourself and your partner, the time saved may not be enough to make you get in the habit of using it. For just the two of us, hand slicing and chopping is fast enough and easier to clean up; plan a party however, and out it comes. And make no mistake: this little unit can do a big job easily. I suspect this unit will last 30 years or more.

It’s big enough for me (single man, living with a roommate in a small san francisco apartment), and easy to clean. If you’re wondering if this would eat a lot of counter space, it will. That’s why i put it back in the box all the time after using and cleaning. However, i think it’s worth it, if you’re looking for a simple and small food processor.

My first food processor and i am using it almost everyday. Pizza dough comes out perfect and slicing vegtables for quiche works very well (zucchini, summer squash). Making salads is quick and easy. The size is just right in taking up a small space on my counter and the price was terrific.

Cuisinart dfp-3 handy prep 3-cup food processormy old 7-cup braun food processor died and was no longer reparable. I was horrified at the huge size of most food processors now available but did’t want a mini-processor. I was a little unsure about getting a 3-cup food processor, but my fears have been allayed. It’s a real little work horse and has done everything i need. The side funnel attachment allows unlimited grating or slicing, so the 3-cup size only relates to chopping. Since herbs and nuts are a primary use i’ve had no problems. In short, i love the petite size and the decent capacity.

I used this only twice and was able to make cookie dough in seconds and mince food in seconds. It isn’t designed to do the job of the 7-cup. I read all the reviews and the ones that are disappointed with this product seem to be using it beyond its design – for very small 3-cup max jobs this is your tool. I read another review that said they love it as a beginner fp – i couldn’t agree moreit may not be worth the 50. 00 but when they sell it on special for like 35. 00 – then pick it up – that is what i did and i am happy with it. My intensions were to use the heck out of it and let my 9 yr old, who loves to cook, use it as a learning tool to become a better baker. And for that we are very pleased.

Ejector disc directs ingredients through chute attachment

I bought this in february and the motor just died on my while making peanut butter. Not overheated or anything, just plain died.

I have been using one of these for at least ten years. I did have to replace the post that the cutters fit onto but it works perfectly even though i put it through pretty hard tasks. I bought this to replace my mom’s and kept her old one for replacement parts. I have thought about ungrading to a full size food processor but then decide that this model does what i want 90% of the time and if my project is too much for one processing, i just do several fillings.

I’ve been using this food processor every day (sometimes multiple times per day) for the past 2+ years. It’s handled everything i need it to, including chopping onions, blending pie crusts, making smoothies, shredding carrots, and blending hummus. No loss of power or function with continuous use. The bowl and the lid have gone through the dishwasher countless times and have held up exceptionally well, although the lock on the lid has developed a crack and is close to breaking off. Replacement parts are easy to come by on amazon (i’ve purchased a few replacements for lost blades). Can’t imagine my life without it.

I bought this for my brother who recently started cooking. He was on the fence about this purchase, not really sure if he needed it. Turned out that he was very happy with his decision to get it because it just makes it so much easier and faster to cook. He uses it to chop onions and tomatoes mainly.

Love the price and the size of the unit. I just feel cuisinart brought the quality a little too low for the price. I would have preferred to pay another $25 for better quality. Pros:-size, price, comes with chute(which i have not tried yet)cons:-uneven chopping of veggies. This is the biggest problem. Worked best by chopping veggies separate. Also need to stop and mix the veggies or the bottom ones are pulverized and top ones not going to bottom. -limitation of 1 cup at a time.

Only issue (and its probably my fault) is that the plastic warped slightly when put in the dishwasher so now when i make salsa the liquid leaks sometimes. This is for small jobs though. If youre cooking for more than 2 people you should probably size up.

I have been looking for something like this for doing small jobs so when i seen this on amazon i thought this would be perfect. It will take up a small amount of space plus i will be able to do a lot of things with this and to use to prepare for meals. I am glad i found this on amazon. I had a small 1 1/ 2 size from black and decker that you cannot find anymore with the shredder and chopper that i used quite a bit so this size will be the closes to that one. It sure cuts down on time to do things.

My cuisinart dfp-3 handy prep 3-cup food processor arrived in only 5 days, (standard/free) thanks to amazon’s superior shipping service. I’m single, but enjoy having guests over for dinner, and decided that the 3 cup processor would work for me. I took my time and read the instructions cover-to-cover prior to actually using it for the first time, and i feel certain that is the key to avoiding many of the mishaps (such as over processing) that other reviewers complained of. This machine is such a joy to use that i found myself at the local farmers market today, just to buy veggies to use in it. (i’m even trying some for the first time ever, which leads me to believe that it’s a healthy influence on my eating habits. Additionally, i was surprised as to how quiet and easy to clean it is. I’m certain that i will use this machine for years to come. Cuisinart is one of those companies that stands out amongst the others with product quality, design, and warranties -i’m a firm believer in the old adage ‘you get what you pay for’ and this is a perfect example.

I just grated up 3 blocks of cheese today with my fantastic new food processor. Awesome :)since i live on my own, this is the perfect size for my needs. I love that it comes with slicing and grating attachments, as well as a continuous feed chute. Pre-grated cheese actually has some carbs in it, and since i’m on a low-carb diet, i prefer to shred my own cheese and this machine makes that incredibly simple. I plan on making mayonnaise next, and the feed pusher thingy even has a small hole in the bottom so you can fill it up with oil and have it drizzle into your yolk mixture in a thin, steady stream. All the parts are easily washable by hand. Also, i love that this machine is actually relatively quiet – especially compared to my blender. :pthis makes an awesome first food processor since it blends the functionality of more expensive models with the handy size and more wallet-friendly price of entry-level models.

I have owned 3 of the biggest cuisinart processors over the last 35 years, and 2 of the mini-preps. This is the handiest by far. The big ones don’t work well for small jobs and the mini-preps are almost useless. This little jewel handles small jobs beautifully. It will emulsify salad dressings like nothing else and grate or shred small quantities of cheese perfectly. I also love it for mincing/pureeing fresh garlic, rosemary, and other ingredients for a fast, fresh dry rub. Another plus: it takes up very little space on the counter or in the dishwasher. When my family lived at home, i loved the large ones. Now this small one fits my lifestyle.

I bought a little pro, which is the same as dfp-3, for my mother in law in 1987 and i inherited it in 1992. It is a very good and high quality machine. I have given it heavy use using the chute to grate apples for canning sauce. Over the years at least a ton of apples have gone through the chute, 240 this year alone. I have replaced it because of a little oil leakage and feared it was dying and not wanting to be without it. The dfp-3, being exactly the same, is as good as the old and i was delighted it was still available. This is the only food processor i have and find it all that is needed for two people.

Comments from buyers

“Really Big Feeding Tube
, The quiet is what amazed me. Wish it came with a storage case
, bigger than I want

Absolutely handles the bigger jobs in the kitchen and the 3 sizes of chute is an answer to prayers.

I should have paid more attention when purchasing, but was very excited to get it on sale for prime day. I can’t tell you if it works well or not yet because we have not lugged it out of the cabinet we finally were able to make space in for this industrial sized food processor. If you are looking to process your food in bulk, look no further.

Exactly what i expected and more.

Haven’t used this much yet, but when i did it worked very well.

Updated review january 10, 2016i’ve down graded the kitchenaid 13-cup food processor to a three star rating. The reason being is the variable slice feature does not work well. The food slicer does not/ can not thinly slice potatoes or onions. I’ve tried several times to use the variable slice feature to do both. The reason why i like using a food processor is to do both. Updated review november 23, 2015tonight i used the kitchenaid food processor to chop up 1 1/2 pounds of beef. The food processor easily chopped up the beef and did not wimp out. The motor still produces an annoying whine, but it works. The rest of the review is below. I purchased the kitchenaid 13-cup food processor from amazon warehouse deals as my last cuisinart purchased in 2009 has never, ever worked right.

I wanted to give this a 5, but just couldn’t. It is big, but that is awesome when doing large amounts of things like shredding bulk cheese etc. Definitely don’t have to empty as often. I like that the blade sits firmly in the bottom so if you turn it upside down, it stays put until you pull it out. It runs quiet, yet seems to have good power. It has worked good on everything i have used it for so far. Now the things i don’t like. First off, the lid is fussy.

I’m a long time kitchen aid fan, so when my old kitchenaid food processor broke beyond repair, i trotted off to get a new kitchenaid – what else?. The capacity is great, but i don’t like the way that you have to press down on the food you’re processing in order to get the processor to work. I also wanted to use the small grating side of one of the discs to grate potatoes and onions, and it just plain old wouldn’t work. I had to use the other side, and the consistency of what i was making came out all wrong, along with the way that it baked and tasted. I’m a bit disappointed in this and with what it cost, that shouldn’t be the case. It does close and lock more easily than my older one, but i just don’t like it as much. And also, for the money that this cost, i’d have expected some kind of a container in which to keep the various attachments. Be careful when unpacking this also, because you’ll easily miss the attachments with which it comes, and that could be disastrous for the operation of the machine. All in all, until i can find a way for the small shredder disc to work, i’m not going to be terribly impressed with this kitchenaid product. I almost wish i’d gotten a smaller one that had less capacity, but better shredding capabilities as my old one had – hopefully.

Big and powerful and processes food very well. Only observation is this is mostly a plastic base, which for those of you with the heavier metal appliances from ka, may be disappointed. However, it makes for a much lighter device to carry around the kitchen which i appreciate.

Too many parts to clean; must use dishwasher.

I use it at least once a week sometimes more. It looks great sitting on my counter. It is quiet and powerful enough to cut through anything i’ve put through it.

Looking forward to using it.

Returned my cuisinart- feeding tube so small that there is no need for a food processor. This big mouth is huge, and is why i bought it. Difficult for me to figure out the food dicer system. And the mozzarella cheese balled up some underneath grate. But parts are sharp, system is a bit easier than cuisinart. Take care with plastic- don’t force, but is thick plastic. This 200$ machine is worth it to me.

I use this baby several times a week to make mayo and slice vegetables.

I bought it for grinding nuts for energy bars, which it does very well, and was happy that the slicing feature made slicing vegetables for a stir fry so fast and easy. The base of the appliance is heavy and the motor is strong. The bowl and parts are sturdy. You will need a dishwashing brush to get food from around the rim when washing. I recommend this food processor.

I can make more to store for later.

Well made, durable and huge, will shred an entire deboned chicken in seconds.

My wife absolutely loves it. She loves to cook and this makes it that much easier.

Why did i wait years to get this???.

Works well, holds quite a bit, quiet motor.

I love the capacity of this processor, it chops great. Only issue is when using the grater, large chunks of cheese, carrots, zucchini, etc. Get stuck in the lid and do not grate which stops the machine.

Looks great and versatile, but i haven’t used it yet. As another reviewer mentioned, it does not include a spatula although there is one on the box.

KitchenAid KFC3100OB Chef Series 3- Cup Food Chopper – Cute little bugger

Only used once but so easy to clean. Made some chicken spread, liked the texture odthe meat, finely ground but not mushy. Unlike a different chopper with ridges in the chopping cup, this one is smooth so scraping out food is a snap and goes right in the dishwasher.

I’ve used this product for several years now and it still works very well. For smaller quantities it’s a great convenience not to have to use a full size food processor. Bowl, lid and blade all wash well in upper rack of my dishwasher.

I chop up peppers and onion and store them for quick egg white omlets for breakfast. Takes up very little room on my counter. I’m sure i’ll find lots of uses for it. Here are the specifications for the KitchenAid KFC3100OB Chef Series 3- Cup Food Chopper:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 3-cup work bowl ideal for small jobs and making sauces, dips, frostings
  • Reverse-spiral-action blade pulls food down for uniform chopping
  • Electronic pulse pad provides precise control; 240 watts
  • Wet and dry compartments on domed lid for adding flavorings
  • One-year “total replacement” warranty

I needed a new chopper for a long time and couldn’t turn this down when i saw it in the gold box deal. Makes cooking so much faster when i have a lot of chopping to do. I saw on some of the reviews that it quit working because the locks wouldn’t lock in, so it wouldn’t start. For that reason, i’ve been hand washing just to be extra careful. I find it easy to keep clean, tho, and have had no trouble with it at all.

I absolutely love this product it is so handy for mixing half a cup or a cup of pecans or whatever you’re chopping no big appliance to sit on your counter. I have had one for eight or nine years and decided to buy a second one just to have it on hand i would definitely recommend this to anybody that is chopping and grinding things for small amounts of food. It is so durable are use it at least two or three times a week i would highly recommend it to anyone.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Favorite durable #1
  • Wife’s new toy and I enjoy all she makes

Works awesome and thank you so much.

Bought this for my mom before thanksgiving and she was unconvinced that she would need a machine to do something that she could do by hand. But the small size, ease of use and speed at which the chopper got things done convinced her otherwise. I like that the bowl has a handle – makes it easier to use compared to the old cuisinart i have at home which does not.

So far, i am very happy with this purchase. It holds a bigger quantity than my previous mini chopper and does a better job. I ordered the red model because it was a few cents cheaper and love the way it looks on my counter.

I had one for a few years now and used it all the time. Broke the blade through no fault of the chopper (accident) and that is the only reason i needed a new one. I didn’t hesitate to replace it right away.It’s just the right size for most recipes since i only cook for two. I would recommend this whole heartedly to anyone.

Went through two choppers, one tv brand broke after fourth use, black and decker broke after second use. I have had a kitchenaid mixer, my mother’s which is over 50 years old and it still works as if it is brand new. So i ordered the kitchenaid chopper, it should have been my first choice. Have a 3/4 acre garden, freeze green peppers, banana peppers, onions, etc and believe me i have really put my chopper to use. What a pleasure, what a great product, what was wrong with me not buying it first. I love it and it just keeps going and going and going. It is a kitchenaid what can i say except excellent.

I received my kitchenaid 3 cup processor yesterday. What a difference from the cuisinart. This kitchenaid processor right out of the box, is notably better quality, and after using it a few times, the kitchenaid works so much better than the cuisinart. Yes there is a difference in price, but it’s worth every penny of that difference in quality. I read a review that said well you can’t expect the little cuisinart mini to do what a big processor can do. I certainly do expect the mini processor to do what the big ones do. The kitchenaid 3 cup will do as well as the big processors.

I don’t use a food chopper much so i don’t need a huge one. Generally the others that i’ve owned have been large and heavy and obnoxious sitting on the countertop. This one is the perfect size. It’s perfect for chopping nuts for cookies, onion for a meal, etc. I love it, now to keep my daughter away from it.

Shipped quickly and arrived as expected. Bought this as a replacement to one we currently own. Major mishap with the plastic assembly on our old one made it unusable. This is invaluable to us in the kitchen. Good quality and great functionality.

This unit is a hummus machine from fresh dried garbanzo beans that we purchased on amazon as well. With some seasoning, we can rival the product offered an many restaurants as an appetizer in the dfw area. We are very please with the ease of operation, the speed of chopping and most importantly the ease of clean up. Many devices are not used because it takes longer to clean it than the time is saved in using it. This one is a gem and we use it multiple times a week without worry due to the warranty on the product. Thanks kitchenaid and amazon.

This is my second kitchenaid chopper. I gave the first to my daughter thinking it would be easy to replace. I finally found this one which was the same as the first, except this new one is red.

Takes up less space on counter. Hardly ever us my standard sized food processor any more.

After having a kitchenaid mini chopper for years, using it mainly for making pesto, chopping onions, and grinding nuts, the little locking tabs broke. I bought a different brand, because it was much cheaper. The first time i used it, i knew i had made a mistake. The blades just spun around, leaving the basil leaves unchopped, the pouring hole was too small, and oil spilled all over the counter. I returned the piece of junk (which had been ‘sponsored by food network)and went back to this tried and true, reliable piece of equipment. It is called a ‘chopper’ and kitchenaid has a full size processor if that’s what you need – but this is perfect for the smaller jobs, and makes an incredible homemade pesto in particular.

I have a full-sized food processor that works poorly, and this little number has saved me several times. It’s compact, easy to clean, and tears through most anything. I’ve used it to turn home-made oatmeal cookies into pie-crust and used it to bring together a pesto sauce. I also respect the company for going the extra mile and including a little spatula.

This is a very handy appliance for my kitchen and i love the red color. It is so easy to use and does a good job of cutting up vegetables, meat, nuts and any kind of food that is safe to use. I have used it for several years and really appreciate the help it gives me in preparing foods.

Great little processor with lots of power but the pulse button sticks so i will have to return it. Aside from this issue, it seems like a good little machine. I will chalk it up to a ‘defect’ and won’t be too harsh. I barely touched it and it slashed my finger.

So happy to have found the kitchenaid chopper. I love the one purchased several years ago and decided to find a future replacement. I received it right away and it is just as i hoped for.

Cuisinart FP-12DC Elite Collection 12-Cup Food Processor – does everything it’s supposed to do

I bought this to replace an ancient original model cuisinart (30+ years old) so i can’t compare it to other current brands. But i’m happy with the upgrade. I have used it for pesto, slaws, routine chopping and slicing, tart and pie doughs, soups, and many other tasks. I haven’t used it for bread dough, preferring the kitchenaid mixer for that. I don’t usually use the smaller bowl but it comes in handy sometimes. What i like: beautiful design, solid die-cast body, snap-fit of bowl parts, no-fuss safety mechanisms, quiet operation, adjustable slicing blade, pouring lip, large overall size but with a small bowl option, generally thorough and consistent chopping. Tight-fit gasket for liquid ingredients (but see below)not so good: these are only occasional annoyances: during fine chopping, such as for pesto, small bits will get caught up in the gasket, which does not appear to be removable. You have to run water into the holes above the gasket and jiggle the gasket to make the bits leave. Though the gasket generally seals well against liquid, a weak point is at the pouring lip, where things can get a little sloppy.

The cuisinart fp-12bk elite collection 12-cup food processor in black is an expensive food processor, but feels very quality. You can tell it is very powerful and handles everything i’ve thrown in it with ease. I think the peanut butter i made was the most impressive for its ease in preparation and ‘better than store quality’ results. Came out perfectly creamy and delicious. Much better than the peanut butter my old, smaller cuisinart struggled to make. This food processor is quieter than i had expected for being so powerful. It is very large and heavy, but is attractive, and looks good on the counter, so i don’t have to move it around too often. Although the rubber gasket on the the tight fitting lid is slightly difficult to clean, it does do a good job of preventing spills in an overfilled bowl. The instructional dvd is actually worth watching, as it has 12-15 recipes that showcase this food processor and gives good ideas for how to use the product. The actual ‘how to’ part of the dvd is overkill and boring, but the recipes, made by a cute, older french chef were quite entertaining and show how versatile this food processor is in helping to make food preparation easier.

There are already over 100 perfect ‘5’ score reviews here, so i won’t rehash most of the many great features of this wonderful kitchen tool. I use this at least once a day. It is a powerful workhorse in the kitchen. I am amazed by it’s versatility and its durability. I noticed that some of the negative reviews have a common complaint – that the there is a leaking problem if you fill the bowl with too much liquid. The line that is marked on the bowl by cuisinart isn’t that accurate (even if you don’t fill beyond that line, you can still have a leaking problem). Here’s what i do to avoid leaking problems. I just filled my bowl with water and found out exactly how much liquid that i could put into the bowl without having a leaking problem. Then i just remember to keep my liquids lower than that level. The result is that the unit does not leak. Here are the specifications for the Cuisinart FP-12DC Elite Collection 12-Cup Food Processor:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 1000-watt food processor with 12-cup work bowl and nesting 4-cup work bowl
  • On/off/pulse touchpad controls; wide-mouth feed tube; blade-locking system
  • Stainless-steel slicing disc, shredding disc, chopping/mixing blades
  • Dishwasher-safe parts; spatula, and recipe/instruction book included
  • Product Built to North American Electrical Standards

I have had this food processor for two months and really like it. I use it to make cookies, muffins, yeast rolls, shredding cheese, slicing potatoes/carrots, chopping nuts, chopping onions and green peppers to freeze and will use it for processing tomatoes when canning. I especially like the adjustable blade to get different size slices of things like cheese or summer sausage. The one thing i would strongly recommend is to read the instructions and watch the dvd that comes with the machine. The proper placement of the small bowl (watch that the bowl is fitted in the grooves to make a tight fit)and making sure both the back and front of the cover are firmly clicked into place is essential. The side opposite the handle must be pushed down firmly until you hear a fairly loud click. I made that mistake the first time i used it and had a mess with contents leaking out all over. Since then i haven’t had any problem with this machine. I especially like the large feeding tube. When slicing tall items such as a cucumber, you must cut them into smaller size chunks and line them up in the tube so the pusher can fit into the top to enable the machine to work.

The fp-12dc elite replaced my 25 year old cuisinart (that still works fine). I wanted a fp with a bigger feed tube and the attachments that i use most frequently. And i’m very happy with this purchase. It came with all the accessories i needed. I have used it just about every day for a variety of tasks and especially appreciate the ease of use of the wide feed tube and how well this appliance slices onions and turnips for turnip chips, grates cheese, shreds cabbage etc. These tasks were rather difficult to do with the old one. Making chicken and egg salad as well as chopped liver is a breeze. The small work bowl is very handy for in between chopping needs. Whipped up a one avocado guacamole in 3 pulses. I also have the cuisinart csb-77 smart stick hand blender with whisk and chopper attachments that continues to be one of my everyday work horses. I watched the video and picked up some nice tips and tricks from it. You can always learn something. Also liked the cookbook and am going to try using the dough blade.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great machine, with one fatal flaw.
  • Read the directions and watch the video!
  • The machine is fine, the description needs modification

I have been around and around with amazon and cuisinart about this product, and would like to share the results. This is a review of the 12 cup fp-12dc food processor. Every time i asked a question, i would get answers relating to the 14 cup model. Amazon does a very poor job of separating different models of products in their review files. First- the listings for the black color, the pink color, the white color, and the brushed aluminum version state clearly that the dough blade is included with the unit. For some unknown reason, this one, the die-cast color, does not state that. It has the very same description, but it seems that someone has carefully cut out the words dough blade. The cuisinart website states that all of the versions of this model come with the dough blade.

Been loving this processor for a while, but until recently, i never used it for liquid processes. I made homemade almond milk the other day and the seals did not do their job. I called cuisinart and while it is covered under warranty, i have to pay to ship it back to them and include a $10 check or money order to pay for them to ship it back. Kind of a hassle, not to mention being without my food processor while they look into the issue. Haven’t sent it to them yet. Not wanting to part with my machine, lol.

This is a great food processor with a price to match. The two different size bowls are a wonderful idea for any cook. I bought this food processor over a year ago; and desired another one for another summer property we have. This was an exceptional price or i would not have purchased another. The first one i bought i did not get any measuring spoons and had to pay $30 for the accessory storage case. With all the blades it comes with, the case for blade storage is a safe and organized way to handle these sharp items. So, with two of these processors under my belt – yes, we can say i love it.

I will never even think about trading it for any other type of machine. It is a high quality machine. And with the extra feature or option of doing smaller batches in the 4 four cup container just tickles me. It really does save on time in the kitchen. And makes cooking so much more enjoyable for me. It has so many features i don’t want to go into. But one of the features i appreciate is the safety. Everything must fit into place in order for the blades to operate.

Got this for my mom for christmas and she loves it. We were all amazed at how quickly it slices up stuff. In no time at all, a raw potato was cut up. Speaking of potatoes, she learned this machine’s power by accidentally pureeing instead of mashing potatoes. The pieces are easy to clean and are dishwasher friendly. Parts are easy to put together and operate as well. ****warning**** the blades are extremely sharp. My mom barely touched them and it sliced into her. Be careful when handling the blades.

I use this food processor every other day as i make my own dog food which takes a lot of power to grind through large amounts veggies and meat. I use it for many other foods as well and it performs well. The heavy base keeps this machine from ‘walking’ off the counter. It remaining very stable while processing. The lid is hard to clean and you must use the brush tool supplied to clean the seals on the lid. I tore the seal on the lid when i used the flat plastic cleaning tool and i got a replacement from the manufacturer but had to pay shipping to send back the old damaged lid. Use the tool carefully but use it because not cleaning the seal could cause a build up of bacteria in the seal.

I love the cuisinart fp-12dc elite collection 12-cup food processor, die cast food processor like it’s my own child. I’m vegan and about half my food is raw, so i am hard on a processor. I use it at least a few times a week, and have used it for everything from pureeing chunky raw veggies to mixing and kneading seitan (a really tough wheat gluten-based dough). The shredding disc works very well, though it does leave chunks from the ends that sometimes slip through (the same thing has happened with every food processor i’ve ever owned). Despite what the description says, the grater blade is reversible for a large or small grate. The slicing disc is amazing. I used it to do about 4 pounds of thinly-scalloped potatoes, and it took less than 5 minutes. It’s a safe alternative to a mandoline slicer, too – no getting fingertips in your meals. I absolutely love having the 4-cup bowl for smaller servings of hummus, guacamole, nut butters, and tahini that wouldn’t reach the blade in the large bowl. I will never buy a single-bowl food processor again.

Pros:1000w induction motor – says right in the manualbpa free – says right on the boxadjustable slicing blade 1-6mm (huge bonus as blades are $20 a piece)lid is extremely easy to get on and off; push a button to release. I can take the lid off/on with one hand. Lid has a seal to keep liquid inpretty quiet during use. Weight of bowl and plastic just feels better. Warranty: 10yr motor; 3yr machine. Cons:food particles get stuck in lid edge. There is an included tool to clean it. Dough blade is plastic (is this really a con?. Use a stand mixer)food stays above the blade sometimes when slicing/shredding. (is that really a fault?)replacement lid most likely cost more if you break it.

I have made almond flower, almost butter, mayonnaise, mixed breads, grated cheese, veggies, chopped, well, you name, i’ve pretty much done it. I love the seal, but it does take a little tlc to keep it clean. The veggie shoot with the two sizes is really nice. Only thing is the small shoot doesn’t lock into place like the large one does, so it constantly oops out if you set the top on the counter upside down. I would love to find a top for this machine that doesn’t have the veggie shoot because it would make clean up faster.

I had a small combo cuisinart blender-food processor. However, it is too small for many recipes and is not sealed. This machine was a huge move up for me. I have found it is a pleasure to use. I did not get the case for the blades which would be helpful to have. Also, i did not realize the spatula was not heat resistant so i melted it adding the bowls ingredients to a hot plan. The only problem with this machine is it is large and heavy making storage a consideration. Update — i made a north african dressing by cooking down an orange in honey, water, spices and vinegar than pureeing it in the processor. The combination etched the plastic of the food processor bowl.

I have never had such a powerful, well built food processor. All the pieces fit together perfectly, as expected. I love the simplified buttons. Those three are all i have ever really needed anyway. The motor does not give off a high-pitched whirr, it is a low growl, like the difference between a dirt bike and a harley. It cuts through everything without getting stuck, or failing to chop some pieces.

After almost 2 years, i can say that this food processor works just fine as far as chopping goes (the motor and blade) however it gets 3 stars because there is mold growing in the handle and the plastic is getting very fatigued, ready to crack any moment. It’s been there for at least a year but recently got so bad i have to toss it. I never even used the smaller part like i thought i would. Also the lid shoot has been corroding for sometime (doesn’t appear to touch food) so that is a flaw as well. It’s all been only hand washed. The actual lid, where the seal is, is quite difficult to clean especially if you don’t rinse it immediately. I used this sparingly for the first year and a lot this 2nd year. I’m in the market for a new one.

I had for years what i thought was a pretty decent food processor. However, the cup size was small, and my biggest complaint was how loud it was. Also, its power diminished over time. It seemed that i had to pulse and try all kinds of tricks to make it work harder (limiting the amount of food i added at once to an already small cup size, etc. Honestly, it’s like dating what you thought was a pretty good guy, and then finding the man of your dreams. I whipped up mashed potatoes in no time last night. They were perfect and beautifully swirled with seemingly little effort. It was the most lovely food processing site i’ve ever seen.

I really liked having the smaller bowl insert. What i didn’t like what that it has a very thin silicon-like o-ring of sorts that is attached to the lid. Mine tore really easily but cuisinart replaced it for me without hassle so that was good. The thing is, even with a new one, when i would pulse liquids, they would spill out and go all over the place. Now, i understand why my kitchenaid does that. There’s no rubber o-ring to seal it. But what’s the point of having the ring on here if it doesn’t actually seal it shut. My other complaint is that you can’t wash the lid without your dirty water getting inside the ring and then it get’s trapped and turns yucky. Kitchenaid has a similar problem though in that their handles trap water in them.

I’ve debated whether i should give 2 stars or 3. Two issues:- lid is never clean, food gets there. – doesn’t last many yearsit worked for first 3 years, then it would fail to start. I had to disassemble, put back together, twist and turn until it finally can click somewhere and engage. So sadly i had to buy a new one – so it lasted just 4 years. I usually expect my appliances to last longer than that.

Compared to my old cuisinart food processor, the new one has a few nice improvements, such as work bowls that do not leak when soup or sauce is processed. However, there are 2 significant glitches in the design of the shredding disc. The disc has 2 finger holes that apparently should be used to insert and remove the disc over the stem adapter. But what happens is pieces of the food that are being shredded fall into the bowl through these holes. The other problem with the disc is that its diameter is much smaller than the diameter of the bowl top, which means that big chunks of food fall into the bowl through the empty space. As the result, once you remove the shredded food from the bowl, you have to manually extract the big unprocessed pieces. And there is a large amount of them. I wonder if cuisinart ever tested their new ‘improved’ discs.
