    Does a great job with no hassle, December 30, 2008

    I avoided food processors in the past because the food chute was always too small, the motor wasn’t up to the job, and they were a pain to clean. My fiancé bought me this food processor as a Christmas present. I’m pleased to say that we’re both impressed by its appearance, thoughtful design, and performance.

    The brushed stainless finish is attractive 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 huge amount of counter space, and sits securely without “walking” or shimmying even when processing heavy foods.

    The work bowl has a HUGE opening that greatly reduces pre-prep knife time. However, you are not stuck using the big opening all the time. The pusher has a smaller round “sub-pusher” in it that provides a smaller opening for holding long vegetables upright or for adding liquids while in motion. The lid is secure but can be removed and replaced 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 food (so long as you don’t stick your hand down the pusher opening). At 9 cups, the work bowl is the perfect size (7 cups is just barely too small for good processing, I’ve found).

    The first 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 smoothly without pureeing. The included spatula got all the food out of the work bowl quickly without making a mess. I made homemade mayonnaise (successful my first time ever with homemade mayo) according to the recipe in the documentation, and threw in some 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 hear you.” (The machine is quieter than my blender.) While I plated the salad, he washed the parts quickly with a soapy sponge and was surprised how easy it was.

    It’s important to know that this machine will take the same blades and attachments as the 7-cup version (the Prep 7, DLC-2007N). It doesn’t say that on Amazon’s or Cuisinart’s site or anywhere 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 attachments for the 7-cup model fit this 9-cup model too.

    I asked for this as a birthday gift from my mother in law. I love it and I use it all the time. I use the grating disc for carrots and cheese, the slicing disk for cucumbers, seeded bell peppers and other veggies, and small blocks of cheddar (for crackers).

    I make herb/salt rubs for meat from fresh rosemary and thyme and oregano whizzed with salt and pepper. I make pesto and salad dressings. I grind nuts for baking cakes and cookies.

    The motor is very strong and quiet, the footprint on my counter is relatively small. I usually use a long-handled kitchen brush with a little dish soap to clean it, which is fast and easy and leaves it available for the next job. If it’s the end of the day, I put the bowl, lid, pushers and blades into the dishwasher.

    The only thing it’s not great for is chopping things that you want to have in uniform pieces, like for salsa. It tends to chop some stuff very fine by the time the largest pieces have been cut up. If I want an even dice, I still have to do it by hand.

    Loved it for over a year then we started finding bits of metal in our scones-turns out it was from the bottom of the blade. Very dangerous.
