Summary: Good for small chopping duties. Dicing onions, chopping nut meats. Very small capacity. Plastic container seems very fragile. Will suffice for my infrequent baking projects. Not as sturdy as one i replaced, but much more compact than my kitchen center was. Not suitable if cooking for a family.
Summary: I was so happy to find a 3 cup processor. I made my own baby food for my first baby and plan to do so again with the second baby. I used a 6-8 cup one, but sometimes that was too much. I also love to use the processor for "shredding" veggies. Like carrots for cake and zucchini for bread. I have found that it doesn't chop the zucchini very well at all. With my big processor I can fill it to the top and it will chop it all down.
Excerpt: I've had a large Cuisinart for over 20 years and finally decided to purchase a little mini prep because it is such a pain to lug out my regular food processor every time I want to chop an onion or a potato or grind up some nuts for a recipe that doesn't require much. I also love this little mini-prep for chopping up (basically it's grinding it up) the delicious chicken salad spread I make with the leftovers from the rotisserie chickens I buy at Sam's Club.
Excerpt: I've had two of these Mini Preps and have had the same problem with both. The blade assembly is cheaply made and the plastic which holds the stainless steel blade eventually will split and something inside rusts. This not only isn't sanitary, it could cause an injury if the blade comes out completely. To replace the blade costs around $15 plus shipping. If they could make the blade assembly more sturdy, I'd buy a third, but not until they do.
