Product Description

More convenient than ever, the Cuisinart Elite collection 4-cup chopper/grinder effortlessly handles a variety of food preparation tasks such as chopping, grinding and pureeing. The smartpower blade has a patented auto-reversing ability with a sharp edge for delicate chopping and pureeing soft foods, while the blunt edge grinds through spices and harder foods. Additionally, the revolutionary bladelock system feature keeps the blade secure during processing and pouring. Small enough to keep on the counter, the 4-cup work bowl is the ideal size for many food prep tasks. The handle, touchpad controls, and dishwasher safe parts make it even more convenient to operate and clean. It's cutting-edge food prep from Cuisinart. From the Manufacturer In 1973, Cuisinart expanded the potential of every American kitchen with the introduction of the food processor. Now, the folks who revolutionized the way you cook are back with a collection that takes power and innovation to the next level. The Cuisinart Elite Chopper/Grinder handles a variety of food preparation tasks, such as chopping, grinding, pureeing, emulsifying, and blending. The 4 cup capacity holds enough ingredients to perform all your basic food prep tasks. The patented SmartPower auto-reversing blade features an incredibly sharp edge for delicate chopping and pureeing soft foods. The reverse edge is blunt, to grind through spices and harder foods. And the exclusive BladeLock System enables the blade to lock into the bowl, so you can now pour ingredients out of the bowl without first having to remove the blade. The powerful high-speed motor works hard and fast to accomplish small jobs with ease. Chop herbs, onions or garlic; grind spices or hard cheese; puree baby foods; blend homemade mayo and flavored butter -- all in one compact machine that is small enough to keep on the counter. You have virtually unlimited options with the Cuisinart Elite Collection Chopper/Grinder. Features Convenient Size, Compact Design: Small enough to keep on the counter, the 4-cup work bowl is the ideal size for many food prep tasks. The handle, touchpad controls, and the dishwasher safe parts make it even more convenient to operate and clean. Optimum Safety: No need to remove the blade after processing! The exclusive BladeLock System secures the blade in place for easy user-friendly pouring. Pour all you like -- these blades aren’t going anywhere. The patented blade system saves you the time and hassle of removing them before pouring out those potentially messy soups and sauces. Simplicity: The Chop/Grind touchpad controls and patented auto-reversing SmartPower blade offer powerful processing options at the touch of a button. Tips for Better Food Processing   Food size: Always cut large pieces of food into smaller pieces of even size -- about 1/2 an inch -- to produce a uniform chop.Chop and Grind Function   Bowl fill: Do not overload the work bowl; processed food should not reach more than two-thirds of the way up the work bowl. Please note: because of the powerful motor, it is recommended to use one hand to support the chopper/grinder during operation.   Chop vs. Grind: Use the Chop function for chopping, pureeing and mixing. It is the right choice, for example, for chopping soft, fragile food such as herbs, celery, onions, garlic and most cheeses. It is also the right choice for pureeing cooked vegetables, making mayonnaise, and mixing salad dressing. Use the Grind function for grinding spices, and for chopping hard foods such as peppercorns, seeds, chocolate and nuts.   Pulse vs. Continuous-hold: Pulsing is best when you are using the chop function. Two or three pulses are often enough. Be sure to check the food frequently to prevent over processing. If you over-process, you are likely to get a watery paste instead of a fine chop. A continuous-hold is best when you are using the grind function. Depending on the food, you may have to operate the unit for several seconds to achieve the desired results -- or as long as 20 seconds for some seeds. When operating in continuous-hold, use a pulse action every 10 seconds to allow food to drop to the bottom of the work bowl. This provides more consistent results. Never operate the unit continuously for longer than one minute at a time.   Adding liquid: You can add liquids such as water, oil or flavoring while the machine is running. For example, you might want to add oil when making mayonnaise or salad dressing, or you could add vanilla or alcohol when making frozen yogurt. Pour the liquid through one of the two openings in the cover. Please note: only add liquid through one opening at a time. The other opening must be left unobstructed to allow air to escape. If both opening are blocked, liquid cannot flow smoothly into the bowl.   Removing food from the sides of the bowl: Occasionally food will stick to the sides of the bowl as you process. Stop the machine to clear the food away. Once the blade has stopped, remove the cover and use the included spatula to scrape the food from the sides of the bowl back into the center. Do not put hands into bowl unless unit is unplugged. Quick Start Guide Place the work bowl firmly on the motor base. Opening the at the back of the bowl must face column at the back of the Chopper/Grinder. Turn bowl counterclockwise to lock in place. Insert the blade assembly. Carefully pick up the blade by its hub and place on the center stem until it drops to the bottom of the stem. Firmly push to lock the blade into position. NEVER TOUCH THE BLADE ITSELF AND NOTE THE BLADE IS NOT PERMANENTLY LOCKED. Place food in the work bowl. Be sure the food is cut into small pieces, and the bowl is not overloaded. Lock the cover into position. Press the appropriate Chop or Grind control, depending on the food you are processing. When you have finished processing the food, stop the machine by releasing the control button. ONCE THE BLADE STOPS MOVING, unplug the unit. Remove cover and work bowl Turn work bowl cover clockwise to remove. Turn work bowl clockwise to unlock and lift lid off base. Note: thicker ingredients can be removed while work bowl is still on base. To remove liquids and sauces from bowl: simply pour ingredients out of work bowl. The convenient BladeLock System keeps the blade safely in place. To remove thicker ingredients from bowl: Carefully remove the blade assembly by holding the handle on the top of the sheath and gently pulling up to disengage blade lock. Remove food with spatula. Tips: Always process foods in order, from dry to wet, to avoid having to clean bowl and blade between each task. Never operate the Cuisinart Elite Collection Chopper/Grinder without ingredients in the work bowl. The BladeLock System Cleaning and Storage  To simplify cleaning, rinse the work bowl, cover, and blade immediately after each use. Wash blade assembly, work bowl, cover, and spatula in warm soapy water. Rinse and dry. Use caution when washing the blade.Make Hummus in Minutes  Avoid leaving the blade in soapy water where it may disappear from sight. The work bowl, cover, blade assembly, and spatula can be washed on the top rack of a dishwasher. Wipe the motor base clean with a damp sponge or cloth. Dry it immediately. Never submerge the motor base or plug in water or other liquid.  The Cuisinart Elite Collection Chopper/Grinder stores neatly on the countertop in a minimum of space. When it is not in use, be sure to leave it unplugged. The hidden cord storage underneath the motor base will help to keep excess cord off the countertop. Store the unit assembled to prevent loss of parts. Store the blades out of reach of children.

Cuisinart 14 Cup Food Processor Review

cuisinart 14 cup food processorI have loved and used Cuisinart Food Processors for over 25 years.  If anyone is looking to purchase one, I highly suggest the 14-cup Power Prep, a marvel of a machine.  First of all, you can knead French bread dough in just 40 seconds! You can use a Cuisinart 14 cup food processor for almost every recipe, but I’ve written just a few Rules of Thumb.

This Cuisinart 14 Cup Food Processor is available at over 40% off retail prices!

Click this link to take advantage of this huge offer!

Kneading
White Bread: The 14-cup model will do recipes up to 6 cups of white flour (2 large French Bread loaves).  Add your bread recipe ingredients (with half of the white bread flour listed in the recipe) to the work bowl, process to make a smooth batter. Add the rest of the flour, 1 cup at a time (with the last 1/2 cup through the feed tube) until the dough collects and starts to clean the sides of the bowl. Then count to 40, to dough perfection.
Wheat Bread: I’ve found that 3-cup whole-wheat flour recipes are best suited for this size of model (1 large loaf) since 100% whole wheat is twice as heavy white bread flour.
Rolls: Process until the dough collects and cleans the sides of the bowl, then count for 30 seconds.
Pasta or Tortillas recipes: Process and knead until the dough collects and cleans the sides of the bowl. Chilling the dough in plastic wrap for 30-60 minutes makes rolling much easier.
Piecrusts: Cutting in the fat, is simplified in a Cuisinart. Using very cold butter slices in place of shortening, rivals the best tasting crusts too. FYI: Don’t process the dough to a dough ball, just PULSE until the mixture pinches together easily between your fingers. Dump the contents onto wax paper, then form dough into a ball and knead a few times by hand (adding a teaspoon of water or two, as needed). Wrap the pastry ball in plastic and chill for an hour for easy rolling.
Quick Breads: Add recipe ingredients and PULSE, just until the flour barely disappears. Scrape out contents into greased pans.

Here are some great features of this Cuisinart 14 cup Food Processor, the DLC 2014.

My husband and I try to eat healthy, so we both cut up A LOT of vegetables. We also eat pretty low fat, so onions and peppers make up the base of many recipes we enjoy. I have rushed to the bathroom in tears more than once, mascara streaming down my face, after cutting onion after onion by hand. I first used the Cuisinart 14 cup food processor to make pie crust for pumpkin pies at Thanksgiving. I’ve never made dough but I watched the handy DVD that came with it and the folks made it look so simple. The DVD is worth watching, you get to see the cooks in action using the different parts and all the cutters and shredders, after I watched it I was confident in my ability to use this machine. 

After the success with pie crust, I started to use it to chop onions. Within 10 seconds I have perfectly processed onions! Hubby uses the Cuisinart 14 cup food processor to shred potatoes to make hash browns on Sunday mornings. I help him by using it to shred cheese for our accompanying omelets. I also use it to puree soups, again easy as pie and done in a flash. 

Honestly, the Cuisinart 14 cup food processor is one of the best kitchen appliances I’ve ever used, second only to my knives. The only con is that the motor base is pretty heavy.

Here’s what one of the owners had to say about the Cuisinart 14 Cup Food Processor:

Imagine kneading bread dough to perfection, in as little as 40 seconds! Its how I make FRENCH BREAD. I also make all my dinner rolls and sweet rolls in the Cuisinart 14 cup food processor (yum)! 

Easily mix cakes, quick breads, and piecrusts. Effortlessly chop, slice and shred food; you can even grind meat. 

Touch Pad: I love it’s smooth, easy to clean and computerized touch pad. 

Buttons: (OFF, ON, Pulse and Dough) The dough button kneads bread to perfection in 30-40 seconds. Plus it features a powerful induction motor for HEAVY DOUGH. The improved lid and feed tube assembly (with it’s safety locking system) is much easier to use (at least to figure out). 

Lid: Each Cuisinart includes a lid and 2 pushers (with a large feed and a smaller inner feed tube). 

If you want a “top of the line” food processor, for your smallest to larger needs, you won’t be disappointed with the Cuisinart 14 cup food processor! (Sharon Anne)

Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB Review

cuisinart dlc-2011chbModern American life leaves those with family’s precious little time to function like the families of yesteryear. Between the job commutes, working out, kids, chores, and other pressures, there is little time to cook a decent dinner. I do the majority of cooking in our household and it is something I enjoy, but it is increasingly hard to accomplish because of my ever-demanding schedule.  This is where the Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB comes into the picture.

 

 

This Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB is available at over 45% off retail price!

Click this link to take advantage of this huge discount!



But I like to prepare meals from scratch with fresh ingredients including an ever-increasing list of vegetable. Heretofore I have chopped the majority of my vegetables by hand and that is both time-consuming and tedious. And fresh shredded cheese, bread/pizza dough, and fresh whipped cream: forget it! 

So, I have been looking for a quality high capacity food processor to chop, dice, shred, and puree. I had thought to go with Kitchen Aid, but alas their offering was long on function and, well, short on aesthetics. So I turned to that other siren of kitchenware’s Cuisinart for my food processor, namely the Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB (11 Cup) Food Processor.



In The Box 

:

Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB w/ Touch pad Dough Control 
- 11-cup Lexan work bowl
Chopping blade 
Power Prep metal dough blade 
Extra-large (4-1/4 by 2-3/4 inches) feed tube slices whole fruits and vegetables 
One-piece Cuisinart Supreme feed tube 
(4 mm) Stainless steel medium slicing disc 
(4 mm) Stainless steel shredding disc 
Detachable disc stem 
Spatula 
Recipe / Instruction book 
How-to DVD 

The Cuisinart 11-Cup Food Processor comes with everything one might need in one box, namely stainless steel chopping blade, dough blade, as well as slicing and shredding discs.

At 14-pounds this attractive appliance,  the Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB is not light, but is easy enough to move about and store. 

The 600-watt motor in the base automatically adjusts the blades’ speed to ensure proper consistency when mixing bread and pizza dough’s. Measuring in at 4-1/4 inches by 2-3/4 inches, the large oval feed tube can accommodate whole fruits and vegetables as well as large chunks of beef, chicken, pork and other meats. 

 A smaller cylindrical tube is located inside the pusher assembly and has its own hollow pusher, which removes with a twist. This can proved useful for slicing cucumbers, carrots and the like. On the bottom of the small pusher is a pinhole for dribbling fats such as oils into the bowl while making tartar sauce, or spreads. 
The large, removable, clear, 11-cup Lexan work bowl is virtually impervious to heat or cold and shatterproof. Existing Cuisinart blades and discs also fit this machine. Cuisinart warranties the the  Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB food processor motor against defects for 10 years and the remaining parts for three years. 

I am very happy with my choice of this 11 Cup food processor, Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB. This baby works and works well. All of the parts are easy to use and remove. My first mission: chop up a clove of garlic, an onion, and bell pepper for my homemade spaghetti sauce. 

Using the “pulse” mode, the appliance made short work of the vegetables at hand and with a small modicum of tears. And because the veggies are more finely chopped than I can do by hand, the flavor of the spaghetti sauce was greatly improved. 

Next up: pizza dough! 

The Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB with stainless steel finish, is a keeper. The combination of large cup size, versatile cutting, shredding, and chopping blades/ discs promise to help me get decent nutritional meals on the dinner table for my family.

Here are some of the great features of the Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB:

You can get the Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB now at a much lower price!  Click here to save over $175 on this item!

I replaced a 22-year-old Cuisinart DLC 8 plus with the Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB  — what a number of improvements — and I was able to continue using all of the blades and the whisk attachment I had purchased years ago for that machine. They are essentially identical to the ones used for this machine (save for those being made in Japan and the new ones in China). It has a much bigger feed tube so a medium sized onion or tomato goes in whole. The size of the unit (for me) is ideal. Perhaps for very large families the 14 cup unit would be the way to go. It is of essentially the same design; however, the blades are not interchangeable between those units. 

What I really like is the redesign of the locking mechanism. In the old unit (the DLC 8 plus) [and also some current Cuisinart models] the locking mechanism to prevent start up of the machine unless the unit is assembled is controlled by a beam type latch made out of polycarbonate. I think this design is more prone to cracking. The new unit has a stainless steel beam which when inserted locks the unit. It is a great design. 

Another great improvement is redesign of the small feed tube. It is now made of polycarbonate. That material is much more indestructible than whatever lesser plastic was used to design the older small feed tubes. Bounce an old one off the floor and wham — the locking tabs would break off of it. That is not likely to happen with polycarbonate — the material used to produce canopies for fighter jets — it is very impact resistant. 

On top of everything else this model with the shape of its bowl and cover is much easier to clean than the old model. I only clean it in the sink though. I would not run this through the dishwasher repeatedly — especially with fully heated drying. After hundreds of cycles I just can’t believe the parts will come out in as good of shape as they would with hand washing. If you have plenty of cash then run them through the dishwasher and then replace parts in five to ten years. I am trying not to. My old unit suffered scratches in the bowl and cracks in the cover assembly and I am not sure dishwashing helped. 

Cuisinart offers a very wide range of discs (including a julienne, a french fry cutting disc and a fine grater disc) and a whisk attachment for this unit. If you buy a unit from another manufacturer without the range of this unit (made possible by all of the attachments) I think you may have shortchanged yourself.

Here is what one new owner had to say about the Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB:

My first food processor. I have been salivating over these for many years. Don’t wait, just BUY IT.  I love, love, love, LOVE it. In the few weeks that I have had the Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB,  I have put it through its paces.  I’ve sliced, diced, chopped, shredded, pureed, mixed, and made dough. I’ve done hard cheese, softer cheese, peppers, potatoes, onions, chicken breasts, cabbage, carrots, and anything else I could think of.  It has done all of these things beautifully.  This food processor has made cooking even more of a joy.  All the parts have gone through the dishwasher with no problem, and of course they wash up beautifully by hand.

Cuisinart 9 cup food processor Review

cuisinart 9 cup food processorThe Cuisinart Cuisinart 9 cup food processor DLC2009 has a bigger feed tube, a medium sized onion or tomato goes in whole. The size of the unit is ideal for couples or small families. Perhaps for larger families the Cuisinart 14 cup food processor unit would be the way to go. It is of essentially the same design as the Cuisinart 9 cup food processor ; however, the blades are not interchangeable between Cuisinart 9 cup food processor and 14 cup version.

We do A LOT of cooking in our household. Some 15 years ago, we purchased a food processor and have hated it ever since. It wasn’t a Cuisinart but wasn’t cheap either. In the time it took to put all the parts together, do the work and then clean the thing, we decided we might as well do everything by hand instead. Like I said, that was a long time ago. Obviously things have changed! 

 In a nutshell….we love the feeding tube size which is large and eliminates the need to precut vegetables prior to slicing. It’s easy to put together and take apart.   Cleaning it is a breeze with the Cuisinart 9 cup food processor! It’s well made and since we were leaving it on the countertop for quick and easy access,  we also appreciate it’s appearance.  Cuisinart 9 cup food processor offers blade holders which are a convenient and safe way to store accessories. 
 We work hard during the week but still prepare nice meals at the end of the day.  We recognize the time we have saved preparing meals with it.
I have used this for Baby Food pureeing and I love it! It does it all. Some things take longer than other (green beans and peas) but it does the job. Easy stuff like carrots and squash and pears take just seconds. Easy to take apart to clean and love that it’s dishwasher safe so I don’t have to worry about hand washing it myself.

Here’s what one proud owner had to say about this Cuisinart 9 cup food processor.

I did a lot of research for the right food processor for me, and this was my top pick!  

First of all, I have used other food processors before and they were not able to make dough (engine not tough enough) and you couldn’t cut something as hard as carrots with it without bending the blade. We even broke the shredding wheel on one of them while trying to shed carrots. The first thing I noticed when I got the Cuisinart 9-cup food processor was that those days were over. The blades are strong and heavy, you can FEEL they won’t break. I have made pizza dough, bread dough in this, as well as chopped potatoes and carrots. Not a problem. 

The second thing is that it comes apart very easily, you can hear everything click in place and again when you take it apart so you know when it is ready to go.  

Bottom line: if you are going to get a food processor, you will have to spend some money or you will just be wasting your time and getting yourself frustrated.  This machine works wonderfully.  (Run4Fun)
