Cuisinart DFP-3 HandyPrep Food Processor

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I recently purchased this food processor to replace a model by Black & Decker that my husband ran into the ground. One of his few claims to fame in cooking is a special "secret" recipe for home made salsa, and this handy little Cuisinart makes preparing it a snap.

This processor features a large cutting chamber with a 3-cup capacity. The housing has an opening in the top for feeding in fruits and veggies, and a really nice funnel attachment that allows the chopped items to fall directly out of the processor and into a bowl. Using the two together makes for extremely fast preparation of multiple ingredients, as you can just position the processor over your mixing bowl and feed in one item after another as it runs. This design is incredibly efficient and the funnel attachment is easy to put on and remove as needed. The unit isn't overly large, but has enough weight to it that it stays stable on the counter while in operation (unlike my old food processor, which had a tenancy to skitter across the counter-top if not held in place).

The components on this Cuisinart seem very well made. It comes with two different blade attachments (one for general chopping and other for finer dicing) which are easy to remove for cleaning and simple to reattach. The housing is sturdy and the switch that operates it is wide, intuitive and easy to flip on and off with one finger. The blades, canister and other attachments are all dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. The motor appears well made and I have not experienced any issues with this machine.

For its price range (lists at $110, but I believe I paid half that) and the number of features it offers, you'd be hard pressed to find a better appliance.
