Hi Guys, today I’m reviewing the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor DLC-2A. LINK TO Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus : http://amzn.to/1Dqn5vU It’s 250 watts, weighs 3 lbs and is 9.25 inches tall. The plastic work bowl is 3 cups or 24 ounces. The plastic is BPA free.
The body is a durable lightweight plastic. Mine is chrome but there are many different bright color options to choose from. The control panel is simple with a chop button and grind button. The stainless steel blade has auto reverse meaning when it is in the chop function, it spins one way and when it is in the grind function is spins the opposite way. The chop function uses the sharp edge of the blade for herbs and pureeing soft foods. The blunt edge is for processing harder things like spices and nuts. The lid has two holes for pouring oil or liquids when making mayonnaise or a dressing. The unit comes with an instruction manual, recipe booklet and spatula. The parts are dishwasher safe on the top rack.
I’ll test the mini by chopping garlic, onions, tomatoes, herbs and pureeing cooked carrots. I’ll also grind spices.
This mini is definitely not a replacement for a standard food processor and it’s not meant to be. But it’s a good option for making smaller items like dressings, dips and salsa. People who are not that quick with a knife will also get a lot of use out of this mini.
