Cuisinart Prep 11 Plus Food Processor Review

Food processors weren’t one of those appliances that caught on quickly in the culinary world.

But with new designs like that of the Cuisinart prep 11 plus, they’re starting to make a real impact in the industry and in many homes.

Food processors allow you to quickly shred and rind, slice and chop. This decreases preparation time for any meal dramatically. For the home culinarian on the go, it’s nearly an essential item. Cusinart was the original name in food processing in 1973. The inventor, Carl Sontheimer, wanted to make an sophisticated blender suitable for any kitchen environment.

He succeeded beautifully, and the Cuisinart prep 11 plus illustrates that this line is still going strong. In fact, it’s become a household name.

Positive Features

cuisnart prep 11 plus This Cuisinart food processor has two feeding tubes (one suitable for larger pieces), a dough blade and several sizes of slicing disks. With 600 watts of power, it shows no struggle with thick blends.

There’s some really smart thinking in this design – the working bowl is shatterproof and adapts to hot or cold food equally well. With an 11 cup capacity you can do a lot of work in very short order. The heavy base keeps it from moving around when in use (18 pounds).

The how to video is also very useful for newer cooks who may not know all the ways they can use their food processor effectively.

Add to that a 10 year motor warrantee and 3 years coverage on parts, and this seems to be a machine that Cuisinart stands behind.


If you’re not a gourmet chef or a restaurant owner, shelling out $325 for a food processor may seem a bit over the top. If you happen to be a good shopper you can find this product on sale for around $160.00. That would put this food processor “in line” with other branded models price wise.

The Cuisinart name is certainly one that’s been trusted for its food processing line for over 25 years. That alone may give the Cusinart prep 11 plus a little more pull in your decision-making process.

Customer Reviews

People who purchased this food processor seem to fall in love with it. The machine seems to be a real work horse, delivering on its claims through solid performance. It’s a powerful machine that provides cooks with a lot of flexibility.

Unlike some food processors, Cuisinart prep 11 plus doesn’t seem to have any problem chewing up a whole potato, for example.

The only complaints listed seem to come from the professional sector. Over time the machine seems to fail a piece at a time.

Unfortunately the reviewers did not note how long this took to happen or how much use they were giving the machine. It may simply be that this food processor is better suited for home use vs. a professional setting.


  • 11 cup capacity
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Shatter proof working bowl
  • Speed adjusts for dough
  • Simple feed tubes and pusher
  • Large feed tube for bigger pieces / projects
  • Several disk sizes
  • Recipes and how to video


I would recommend the Cuisinart prep 11 plus for a home that does a lot of cooking, and for larger families. People who cook less will probably find this is just too much machine to really utilize fully (especially for the price).

At the time of writing this review Amazon had this food processor, 49% off for $166.75 and it ships free with Super saver.
