Cuisinart Mini Prep Pro Food Processor ECH4U

Product number: 31953

Seriously compact at just 9" high, Cuisinart’s Mini Prep Pro is a pint-sized food processor that takes up hardly any room in your kitchen yet, because of its powerful motor, can handle a wide range of tasks to help you make tasty meals, tangy sauces, dips, dressings and much, much more.

Pre-set Chop and Grind functions:

The high quality stainless steel blade has a reversible action to help process ingredients thoroughly, and to clean the side of the bowl by operating the blade in both directions. Soft press-and-hold, touchpad buttons make it easy to select the correct programme:

Chop – uses the sharp outer edge of the blade to chop, purée and mix food in an anti-clockwise direction. Especially efficient if used in short bursts to create a ‘pulse’ action.

Grind – excellent for cutting harder ingredients like parmesan or nuts into small pieces and for grinding whole spices or coffee beans into very fine powder. This function uses the blunt inner curve of the blade in a clockwise direction and works best when used with longer bursts of power.

BladeLock system

Once your ingredients are blended to your desired consistency, you can safely tip or pour the mixture out of the bowl because the BladeLock system ensures the blade stays in its place until you’re ready to lift it out.

Other features:

900ml work bowl – the working capacity of the bowl is 700ml for thicker mixtures, blends and purées, but for thin or hot liquids Cuisinart recommend a maximum of 450ml.

Feeder holes in lid – allow you to drizzle oil into a mayonnaise, add flavourings to a mixture or dilute a recipe to a softer texture as it blends.

Spatula included – so that you can scrape the sides of the bowl to get every bit of the mixture out after it’s blended, and for pushing ingredients downwards towards the blades in between bursts of chopping or grinding.

Easy to clean – the work bowl, lid and blade are all dishwasher safe to make your clean-up task really easy at the end of a creative cookery session.

Instruction booklet with recipe ideas included.

BPA free.

5-year manufacturer's guarantee.

"Excellent Little Processor"

star star star star star

I was really pleased with this little machine. It is neat and stands on the worktop taking up very little room and is very handy for instant use. It chops up my herbs quickly and I have also made coleslaw from this which is very popular with family and friends. I have yet to use it for all the processes it provides but am sure when I do it will be great.

"Great gadget"

star star star star star

This is a sturdy piece of kitchen kit, small enough to leave out so it gets used on a very regular basis. Good value for money and great quality

"Very useful gadget"

Very useful gadget and small enough to leave on worktop.

"Excellent kitchen item"

Very easy to use and clean. Bought because of arthritis in both hands makes chopping very difficult and time consuming.

"Great little food processor"

star star star star star

I am very impressed with this food processor! I was looking for a compact but powerful one with a chopping and grinding function and this definitely fits the bill. It works very well, although it is a little noisy (to be expected I guess). It also makes good smoothies (haven't tried it with ice though, I'm not sure if it's suitable for this). I bought it specifically to blend ground almonds and icing sugar to make macarons, and they are definitely coming out finer than before, although not as fine as I'd hoped but still good. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good small processor.
