5Does a great occupation with no hassle
By S. Albertini
I obviated feed processors in the past because the feed chute was always too small, the motor wasn’t up to the job, and they were a pain to clean. My fiancé purchased me this feed processor as a Christmas present. I’m pleased to say that we’re both impressed by it is appearance, thoughtful design, and performance.

The brushed stainless finish is beautiful and easy to wipe clean. The handle-in-front work bowl design is accessible to me (right-handed) and him (left-handed) equally. The machine doesn’t take up a big amount of counter space, and sits securely without “walking” or shimmying even when processing heavy foods.

The work bowl has a HUGE opening that primarily reduces pre-prep knife time. However, you are not stuck using the big opening all the time. The pusher has a littler round “sub-pusher” in it that provides a littler opening for keeping long vegetables upright or for adding liquids while in motion. The lid is secure but may be got rid of and substituted easily. Everything fits stably and securely on the motor base. Work bowl, lid, and pusher work together to make sure you are not exposed to sharp edges or flying feed (so long as you don’t stick your hand down the pusher opening). At 9 cups, the work bowl is the perfective size (7 cups is just scarcely too little for good processing, I’ve found).

The introductory thing I made with the processor was a turkey salad with leftovers from Christmas dinner. Big chunks of onion, celery, and green pepper chopped evenly in a few pulses using the S blade. Big chunks of cooked turkey chopped evenly and with no problems or difficulties without pureeing. The included spatula got all the feed out of the work bowl quickly without making a mess. I made homemade mayonnaise (successful my initial time ever with homemade mayo) according to the recipe in the documentation, and threw in galore herbs to mince while it was processing. I sliced a cucumber with the slicing disk and was startled how quickly it went through.

My fiancé walked in and said, “Wow, are you already done with that? I didn’t even listen you.” (The machine is quieter than my blender.) While I plated the salad, he washed the elements quickly with a soapy sponge and was astonished how easy it was.

It’s essential to recognise that this machine will take the same blades and affixations as the 7-cup version (the Prep 7, DLC-2007N). It doesn’t say that on Amazon’s or Cuisinart’s internetlocation or anyplace in the documentation, but it does mention in a hard-to-notice place on the side of the box that it uses 7-cup processor parts. The set includes a standard 4mm slicing disk and a medium shredding disk, but I’ve ordered the 2mm slicing and a fine grating disk and plan to order the egg whisk later.

EDIT: I received the two disk attachments, and they fit and work just like the disks that came in the box. This verifies that the affixations for the 7-cup model fit this 9-cup model too.

4Good, solid, basic machine.
By Naomi Witzke
My basi undertake at purchasing a feed processor was to buy the $69.99 Oster. I did this because of the price. Predictably, it did not carry out well and I had to return it. Perhaps Oster does better with blenders, I don’t know. After doing further research, I was torn among KitchenAid and Cuisinart. There are hordes of loyal followers in each camp on this issue, and it was hard to choose based on reviews. I at last just went with Cuisinart, because it happened to be the model that my local store carried. In general, I’m happy with the product and would commend it to other home cooks. I’ve only had this appliance a few months, and I don’t use it each day. I in all likelihood use it once each couple weeks because it’s only my husband and me so I don’t cook for a crowd. I do love to prep a lot of feed and then freeze it in front because I’m a busy teacher, so the processor is a huge help with that. If it were not so heavy and posing no difficulty to clean, I’d in all likelihood use it more because this workhorse genuinely gets the occupation done fast. Here are my observations based on what I’ve done with it so far:

It is magnificent at:
Making breadcrumbs (both fresh and dried)
Mincing fresh herbs
Chopping/mincing raw and cooked meats (like whole chicken for chicken patties etc.)
Making salsa

Pretty Good/Could Be Better:
Shredding carrots, cheese (very quick and uniform, but galore gets stuck amidst the lid and the shredding disc)
Grating a wedge of Parmesan (I put little chunks of it in the bowl with the chopping blade, as it shows in the DVD demonstration – and the result was coarser than I expected. In the end it melted fine in the dish I was making (lasagna), but it just felt like coarse sand to me when I was finished processing it, rather than soft powdery flakes like you get when you use the fine holes on the box grater. Still, it sure was a heckuvalot rapidly and without delay than doing it by hand. I guess I’d do it again, as long as it was being added to a dish that would be cooked, like pasta. To make a pile of Parm to serve at the table or to add to breading, I would still use a handheld Microplane zester.)

Not Good:
Slicing green onion by the bunch (it pulled them beneath the lid rather than slicing)

Cleanup and Handling
It’s a little finicky to wash by hand, because there are nooks and crannies for stuff to get stuck in. So far with a little venture and a lot of strong jets of water to shoot into the cracks, I’ve been capable to get it clean. It MUST air-dry, because there’s no way to get a towel into the handle, where some water collects. If I had a dishwasher I think cleanup would be a breeze. So far I’ve only used it when I had a big occupation to do, because other than as supposed or expected it’s just more immediate to pull out the old cutting board and knife or the box grater. They’re having little impact to haul out and rapidly and without delay to clean. Speaking of which, this processor weighs in regards to 12 pounds empty, and in the summer the rubber feet tend to “suction” themselves onto whatsoever surface they’re sitting on. Not so easy to lift this baby down from on top of the fridge, I encountered – and I’m 5’9!. ‘ I would commend storing this at countertop level or lower, and then lifting with your knees to save your back and shoulders.

Final Comments:
I am happy with my buy and would buy another Cuisinart if this one ever dies. I wish it shredded things without pulling them sideways under the lid, but that’s my only complaint – and actually, it’s only a little amount that gets pulled under. In the end, I’d much rather use this processor to shred various pounds of cheese than to use the box grater. I would commend this size to a family of 4 and up – unless you’re like me, and you like to chop a bunch of stuff at once and then freeze or may it. Good product, decent price for what you get overall.

5strongest motor of it is class
By A
We chose this model because we don’t want to move actually heavy appliances around on the countertop, but the mini-choppers are too little for our recipes. The 2007 weighs regarding 13 pounds and uses the same wattage motor and most of the same disks as the 11-cup model in this line, altho it lacks the extra slow-speed control button for dough processing, and it uses the old-style plastic dough blade. (In this size, it’s probably a pie-crust dough maker, not a bread dough maker, anyway.) It’s the greatest motor we found on a feed processor this size.

Good stuff:

Easy wipe-clean base–no crevices to catch food. Hurray!

Stable and comparatively quiet for the duration of use.

Easy top-rack dishwasher clean-up (power-saver no-heat drying)

Easy to add little (or liquid) ingredients for the duration of processing. Small inner pusher piece is removable, giving access to a little feed tube. There’s also a drip hole for liquids in the bottom of the little pusher piece.

Not so good stuff:

Very fiddly mechanism for locking down the workbowl before processing.

The big outer pusher piece, that goes into the main feed tube, has a metal rod that pushes down another rod on the lid, that pushes down another rod on the bowl, that ultimately pushes a control on the base.

If you have to remove the big pusher to add more big stuff to the bowl, the mechanism stops. Probably just as well, since a child’s hand could effortlessly fit through the huge main feed tube.

I do wonder how sturdy the locking mechanism will be in the long run, but so far, so good.
