Cuisinart DLC-2ABC Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor, Brushed Chrome


Included components of the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor Pulse controlled buttons Why Is This The Perfect Mini Processor For You? The Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor handles a variety of food preparation tasks including chopping, grinding, puréeing, emulsifying and blending. The patented auto-reversing SmartPower blade provides a super-sharp edge for the delicate chopping of herbs and for blending and puréeing other soft foods. The blunt edge offers a powerful cutting surface to grind through spices and other hard foods. Pulse activation gives maximum control for precision processing, whether chopping or grinding. Spatula, product manual and recipe booklet included. Using Your Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor The powerful high-speed 250-Watt motor works hard and fast to accomplish any small job with ease. Chop herbs, onions, garlic; grind spices, hard cheese, purée baby foods; blend mayonnaise and flavored butters, all with the same compact appliance. The Mini-Prep Plus Processor takes up minimum counter space and stores neatly on the countertop or in a cabinet. Best Practices When Using Your Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor Size Always cut large pieces of food into smaller pieces of even size – about 1/2-Inch. If you don’t start with pieces that are small and uniform, you will not get an even chop. Quantity You don’t want to overload the 3-Cup work bowl. Use the quantities given in the included recipe section of the product manual. As a rule of thumb, remember that after being processed, food should not reach more than 2/3 of the way up the central hub of the blade assembly. Selecting the Right Operating Control Use the Chop function for chopping, puréeing and mixing. It’s the best option, for example, when chopping soft, fragile food such as herbs, celery, onions, garlic and most cheeses. It is also the right choice for puréeing cooked vegetables, making mayonnaise and mixing salad dressing. Pulse action is best when you are using the chop function. Two or three pulses are often enough. Use the Grind function for grinding spices and for chopping hard food such as peppercorns, seeds, chocolate and nuts. Continuous-hold action is best when you are using the grind function. Adding Liquid You can add liquids such as water, oil or flavoring while the machine is running. For example, you might want to add oil when making mayonnaise or salad dressing, or you could add vanilla or alcohol when making frozen yogurt. Pour the liquid through one of the two openings in the cover. Removing Food From the Sides of the Bowl Occasionally food will stick to the sides of the bowl as you process. Stop the machine to clear food away. After the blade has stopped moving, remove the cover and use the spatula to scrape the food from the sides of the bowl back into the center. Cleaning and Storage Read to clean up? No problem To simplify cleaning, rinse the work bowl, cover and blade immediately after each use, so that food won’t dry on them. Wash blade assembly, work bowl, cover and spatula in warm soapy water. If you have a dishwasher, you can wash the work bowl, cover, blade assembly and spatula on the top rack. The Mini-Prep Plus Processor stores neatly on the countertop in a minimum of space. The hidden cord storage underneath the motor base will help to keep excess cord off the countertop. Store the unit assembled to prevent loss of parts.

    Cuisinart Vs. KitchenAid Mini Choppers, September 25, 2004
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    When I starting searching for a mini-chopper I was surprised by the huge rating difference between the Cuisinart DLC2 and the KitchenAid KFC3100, so I bought both and did a side-by-side comparison. The only explanation I can give for the ratings difference is that Cuisinart buyers must have higher expectations. For most operations they have nearly identical performance and for some operations the Cuisinart is the clear winner.

    Onions: Many Cuisinart reviewers panned its performance here, claiming it made onion purée, but most KitchenAid reviewers praised its onion chopping ability. I found almost no difference between the two. Maybe its an issue with the instructions – for chopped onions you must use a few short pulses. A few more pulses and you get minced onion – more than this and both give you onion puree. I wouldn’t say either is great at chopping onions, but both are equally mediocre.

    I also tested chopping nuts, and making breadcrumbs with similar results. Both performed about the same for a course chop, although the Cuisinart produced a more even chop on the nuts, but its when you want a really fine chop that the Cuisinart starts to shine. The first reason for this is the grind feature found only on the Cuisinart. This spins the blade in the opposite direction which allows the flat, back-side of the blade to impact the food. More importantly, it redistributes the food, so if you’ve got a couple of chunks that refuse to be chopped, a short pulse in the opposite direction helps it drop into the blade. For perfect, fine breadcrumbs I alternate between the normal chop mode for a few seconds, and grind for one second.

    The other reason the Cuisinart gives a better fine chop is that it does a much better job of cycling the food through the blade. This is a real key when you’re working with softer foods like spreads, pâtés or purees. When I made a cream cheese spread in both choppers the Cuisinart did a far quicker and better job of pulling the ingredients down the center and into the blade. The KitchenAid kept larger chunks bobbing on top. If you’re making dips, spreads or baby food, the Cuisinart is the hands-down winner.

    On the practical side, both choppers were equally easy to clean. Both have small holes in the lid for pouring in liquids on the fly, but only The KitchenAid has a slot for dry or thick ingredients – if that’s important to you. Overall, I found the Cuisinart easier to use for several reasons. First, the Cuisinart blade drops on easily, while the KitchenAid blade is keyed and I found myself turning it several times before it dropped in. Second, the KitchenAid lid must be removed first before you can lift off the bowl, but on the Cuisinart, the bowl and lid can be detached as an assembly. Finally, the Cuisinart blade has a “handle” that extends to the top of the bowl like a popsicle stick allowing you to remove the blade without getting your fingers in the food.

    After all my testing, I really can’t understand the large ratings difference between these two. Neither is perfect – you’ll never get a perfect, even, course chop with things like onions or chocolate, but they do come in handy. For many uses either one will give you pretty much the same results. Because of its advantage with softer foods and its ease of use, I recommend the Cuisinart.

    I love my MiniPrep, it’s a great help!, November 28, 2005

    This review is from: Cuisinart DLC-2ABC Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor, Brushed Chrome (Kitchen)
    I got this as a gift from my boyfriend and have been using it regularly. This is one of those things that you don’t think you ever need (and I did give this topic extensive thought), but once you have it, you would really miss it.

    The good is that it is really good at FINELY chopping things.

    The bad is that it is really good at FINELY chopping things.

    Keeping this in mind, I’ve learnt when to use and when to just use my knife. For instance, when chopping walnuts for banana bread, I put a cup of walnuts into the processor and hit “Chop” – it immediately chopped the walnuts into good sized chunks, but there was a couple of walnuts that didn’t get cut yet, so I hit the “Chop” button a couple more times, but that turned the rest of the walnuts to a very small almost “powder” consistency. I tried it again, with about the same results. I guess I could try putting in less walnuts at a time, but then that would defeat the purpose of “less work” since I’d have to put in a small amount, chop, dump out the first batch, repeat. It’s much easier in this case to do a coarse chop with knife. Chopping Mushrooms in this device also was lacking, it kind of made a mushroom puree.

    Where it shines though is in my daily meals where I’m making some kind of pan sauce. Just about all my pan sauces or pan meals start with butter/oil, then saute’ing some garlic and onions. I’ll just peel a few cloves of garlic, coarse chop an onion, dump it all into the MiniPrep, and presto, it’s done! When I’m ready to dump it into my pan, just remove the co, remove the blade and use a mini-silicone spatula to dump the contents directly into the pan. A quick rinse of the lid, blade, and work bowl, and the processor can be put away. That can’t be any easier.

    For larger meals and more ingredients, it’s great to just coarsely chop your items, dump into the processor, let it do it’s work, and then fill up your prep bowls with the different ingredients – making everything easier once you’re cooking.

    I find the “Chop” and “Grind” feature to be pretty much the same thing, just in opposite directions. The opposite direction thing is helpful to get the food to drop down to the blade. If you don’t put too much in the processor, once the piece is chopped, it gets flung to the sides of the work bowl and sticks there, creating empty space for the unchopped foods to drop into the blade. Everything gets chopped evenly…it just gets chopped very finely too.

    The entire unit is very easy to use and clean. The blades are extremely sharp, so be careful when washing those. The clear plastic work bowl does get a little scratched up and not so clear anymore after a bit of use…but then, it’s a work bowl. The buttons are under a protective plastic, sealed – so no chance of anything getting under the buttons, just a quick wipe and it’s clean!

    Overall, the unit is small, solid, quiet, easy to use, and easy to clean. It’s great for fine chops to puree, not so great for coarse chops/dice. Perfect size for meals for 2 people. For making larger meals you may want to look at the larger cup sized processors, or just make a couple of batches.

    Great little food processor, May 30, 2010
    By 
    John H (Germantown, OH) –

    We bought this item to replace an older, larger food processor from Hamilton Beach which died after many years of service. This little rascal is great! We’re just cooking for two, so it’s plenty big for most all of our needs. The secret seems to be to pulse the cutter using the “chop” button. (Just like the directions tell you to!) If you let it run, you’ll turn your ingredients into a puree. (That’s French for mush!) Of course, if that’s what you’re after, go for it. I’ve used it for onions for hot dogs, pickles for potato salad, jalapenos for salsa, black beans for soup, etc.

    I used to always chop onions with a knife, now I just cut the onion into cubes, throw ’em into the Mini prep, jog the “chop” button a few times, and viola, chopped onions. Clean up is easy, too. The knife lifts out, and there’s just the knife, the lid, and the main container to clean up.

    It doesn’t take up nearly as much precious counter space as my old food processor, either. Would definitely buy this item again!
