    Good, solid, basic machine., June 15, 2008
    By 
    Naomi Witzke (New Hope, MN United States) –

    My first attempt at purchasing a food processor was to buy the $69.99 Oster. I did this because of the price. Predictably, it did not perform well and I had to return it. Perhaps Oster does better with blenders, I don’t know. After doing further research, I was torn between 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 finally 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 recommend it to other home cooks. I’ve only had this appliance a few months, and I don’t use it every day. I probably use it once every 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 food and then freeze it ahead because I’m a busy teacher, so the processor is a big help with that. If it were not so heavy and easier to clean, I’d probably use it more because this workhorse really gets the job done fast. Here are my observations based on what I’ve done with it so far:

    It is excellent 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 some gets stuck between the lid and the shredding disc)
    Grating a wedge of Parmesan (I put small 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 quicker 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 under 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 effort and some strong jets of water to shoot into the cracks, I’ve been able 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 job to do, because otherwise it’s just quicker to pull out the old cutting board and knife or the box grater. They’re easier to haul out and quicker to clean. Speaking of which, this processor weighs about 12 pounds empty, and in the summer the rubber feet tend to “suction” themselves onto whatever surface they’re sitting on. Not so easy to lift this baby down from on top of the fridge, I discovered – and I’m 5’9!. ‘ I would recommend 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 purchase 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 small amount that gets pulled under. In the end, I’d much rather use this processor to shred several pounds of cheese than to use the box grater. I would recommend 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 can it. Good product, decent price for what you get overall.

    Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB Prep Plus 11 vs FP-12DC Elite 12-Cup, March 22, 2012
    By 

    I purchased both the FP-12DC Elite 12-Cup and the DLC-2011CHB Prep Plus 11 Cup. I did this because Consumer Reports rated the DLC-2011CHB Prep Plus 11 very highly (it is currently their second highest rated processor), but did not rate the FP-12DC Elite 12-Cup at all. I was interested in many of the features of the Elite 12, but not at the cost of functionality. Having tested the machines for a week now, I can say that I am pleasantly surprised and quite taken with the FP-12DC Elite 12-Cup processor.

    The Motor:
    While there is little information from Cuisinart regarding motor in the Prep Plus, I believe it to be the same as that in the Elite. Other places have said the Prep Plus has a 768 watt induction motor, and the Elite box states it has a 1000 max watt induction motor. In addition, the motor warranty on both is the same 10 years. They also sound very similar. They are both quiet, with the Elite perhaps edging the Prep Plus here, only because the base is bigger and is able to muffle the noise a bit better. This is not by any means scientific, but they are at least very similar motors and have avery similar amount of power.

    The major difference between these two motors is that the Prep Plus has a dough feature and the Elite 12 does not. This does not mean the the Elite is incapable of dough. It is and it is heavily marketed for it in the sales materials and the included recipes. In fact the Dough button on the Prep Plus (and others including the Elite 14 cup) seems to be largely about product differentiation, or at the very least, it has limited utility. It is supposed to slow the motor so that the dough mixes better. In my testing though, it did not slow the motor significantly, and certainly slowed it less than the actual dough did. I also think a stand mixer does a much better job for this purpose. Having said that if you have limited space, both machines will happily punch up a dough for you.

    I also did not like the buttons on the Prep Plus. They are blister buttons with a thin layer of plastic over them. When I was in the store, these buttons had been completely destroyed by all the fingers pressing on them. Surely a food processor at home would see as much wear, but they did not fill me with confidence. the Elite buttons are a similar style of button, but they seem to have a thin layer of metal covering the button. It seems like a more durable system.

    The Work Bowls:
    The Prep Plus has a Lexan bowl, the Elite has one made of Polycarbonate. Lexan is a very light weight plastic, but it is also somewhat flexible. This gives the impression that the Elite polycarbonate bowl is sturdier, and would last longer. Whether or not that is actually the case is difficult to say. In any case the Prep Plus bowl is undoubtedly lighter, so if you are an elderly person, or have some other infirmity, the Lexan will be better for you.

    Both Elite bowls have a pouring spout, the prep plus does not. That’s right, the Elite 12 comes with two nesting bowls. The Prep Plus comes only with one standard 11 cup work bowl.

    The Elite bowls utilize the Sealtight lid, the Prep Plus uses a standard lid. Some have complained the Sealtight lid is hard to clean, but I have not found that to be the case. A rinse with the sink sprayer, and a run through the dishwasher (top rack) is all that I needed to get either of the work bowls and lids clean. The Sealtight lid does take some downward force to close, but I found it needed no more pressure than the Prep Plus bowl required laterally (sideways). In fact I found the Prep Plus bowl was inferior in use, in almost every way. The Elite bowl can be removed by twisting it left and lifting it from the motor with the lid still closed. The Prep Plus bowl, however, must have it’s lid loosened before you are able to remove the work bowl from the base. In practice this is a real pain. I also found the button release of the Sealtight lid to be much more agreeable than the twisting function of the Pre Plus.

    The Prep Plus has a widemouth plunger opening, and so does the Elite. Oddly, though the Prep Plus opening is very slightly wider, because of the way the slicing and shredding blades mount on that machine, it is a solid inch more shallow. This means you will be doing more chopping before you can get your food processor to do your slicing. In my tests with carrots, it meant four fewer cuts over 5 total carrots. Not a huge difference, but if you were going to do a lot of slicing – making pickles or the like – it would mean quite a bit more prep work.

    The smaller plunger on the Prep Plus is a circular one, that can lock inside the larger plunger. The Elite has a wider elongated small plunger that does not lock. At first I thought this was a falling of the Elite, but in reality the extra real estate in the smaller opening is appreciated, and the need for a locking…

    great product, September 16, 2009

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I spent a lot of time studying all kinds of food processors and settled on this model – it’s great.

    The container is a good size for all kinds of jobs. I still prefer this tool for something as simple as chopping onion and garlic – and it mixes up a batch of yeast bread coffee cake with equal good results (no 100 strokes).

    Storing it is a pain in the neck. I have it broken down for storage and sometimes I grumble in putting it together – but I usually put in the effort.
