Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus Processor

The Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus Processor is a great small food processor to keep on hand. You could use it as your only food processor for a small family or a couple, or you could use it in addition to a larger processor for small tasks like chopping half an onion.

The ability for the blade to change directions is a major plus. Many parts of this unit are dishwasher safe. As soon as you open the box, you can use the recipe book to make delicious treats like hummus, guacamole, peanut butter and more.

Positive Features

cuisinart mini prep plus processor The Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus Processor chops food very evenly. The ability for the blades to go in both directions helps achieve such even cutting.

You can make smoothies, hummus and more for one or two people.

It looks nice on the countertop, but it is light enough to put away easily if you prefer to keep your counters clear. The price is affordable for almost everyone.

You can't beat this machine for making small batches of fresh salsa. The size is perfect for making baby food. You can whip up a batch and fill ice cube trays with the extra for baby's future meals. This machine will have your prep done for a stir fry or soup in no time.


The Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus Processor can sometimes have issues with its blades. Watch for cracks forming in the plastic that will release the blade.

The thin plastic housing and accessories can easily be damaged and cause injury to anyone using it.

Watch for liquid pooling behind the control buttons. This will cause problems later. The motor is loud and has a high pitched sound that may irritate some people's ears. Watch the motor for overheating with thicker recipes like hummus.

The Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus Processor is great if you only need to make very small batches of food. While it performs well most of the time, there are some safety issues you need to keep watch for.

Don't try to make this machine do the work of a larger one; it isn't built for that, but for small amounts for one or two people, there is no reason why this machine won't suit you just fine.

The light weight on this processor is good for anyone who has issues lifting heavy items. Don't overfill it or do heavy jobs and you should be quite satisfied with this purchase.

The price is extremely reasonable, so even if it is only used occasionally on small jobs, it is worth the cost. Overall, if you just need to chop nuts and herbs or make a small batch of dip, this food processor will make your life easier. If you need something that handles more, keep shopping.
