Product Description

Product Description

Cuisinart Mini Processor DLC1SSRU - don`t let its size fool you! This ingenious little machine makes chopping, pureeing and grinding food easy and simple, making it a `must have` in every kitchen, whilst being extremely easy to store. Featuring a 1 speed, dual blade system, with a curved, sharp blade for chopping and pureeing (for garlic, onions, spices and herbs), as well as a flat, blunt blade for grinding (for chocolate, nuts, peppercorns and coffee).

The 600ml lexon plastic work bowl is strong and robust enough to take both hot and cold food, and is encased within a durable brushed stainless steel housing - for an appliance that is designed to last. The lid is designed with open slots for you to easily add or drizzle oil / water etc. through to the mixture. The DLC1SSRU has a safety lock and contains easy to clean, removable, dishwasher safe parts.

For best results:

Always cut large pieces of food into smaller pieces of even size of approximately 1.5cm, to achieve even results

Do not overload the work bowl. Overloading causes Inconsistent results and strains the motor. After being processed, food should not reach more than 2/3 of the way up the central plastic stem of the blade assembly.

Troubleshooting:

Motor does not start or blade does not rotate - Check that the work bowl and lid are securely locked into place. Ensure only one control switch is pressed at a time. Food collects on lid or sides of the work bowl – You may be processing too much food. Turn appliance off. When blades stop moving, carefully remove lid and clean bowl and lid with spatula.

Food gets stuck on the blade - You may be processing too much food. Turn appliance off. When blades stop moving, carefully remove blade. Remove food from the blade and work bowl using spatula and start again.

Box Contains

  • Recipes included

    NOTE: The product may be assembled properly but if the lid is not locked into place there is a safety cutout and the product will not work.

    Not only is this a lovely looking item with a good weight and brushed stainless steel trim, it does a really good job of processing small amounts of wet and dry ingredients. The footprint of the unit is very small approx 4.5Wx6.5Dx8.25H inches. Liquid-wise it holds 500ml to top of spindle cover (but probably not practical to use this full with liquid because of the mess). I've chopped in one go - two medium onions cut into quarters + 2 large cloves of garlic left whole + a one inch piece of ginger cut in half and a handful of whole fresh herbs. The machine is fast and processed this amount by pulsing in approx 10 seconds without any problems and all processed the same no big bits stuck anywhere. It comes with a lovely little book and an even smaller spatula which is exactly the right size for removing processed items. There are recipes - Sauces: classic mayonnaise, aioli, béarnaise sauce, pesto, vinaigrette, crème chantilly; Dips: hummus, guacamole; Fruits & Drinks: cinnamon and pear compote, mojito.

    I didn't buy for grinding whole spices as I already have an excellent grinder (Krupps Twin Blade Coffee Mill) bought for this dedicated purpose over 7yrs ago, and as I cannot comment on this function one star removed. Have done mayonnaise, hummus and guacamole with texture for each spot on.

    The Amazon Market Trader I purchased from provided a good service(Grand Gadgets), ordered Sat 17th at 4.45pm it arrived this morning 20th at 8.45am.

    I've only had the Chopper for a couple of weeks, but so far I'm very pleased with it. It looks very sleek and I'm happy with it out on the work top, rather than hiding it away in a cupboard.
    Unlike other processors, it chops ALL the ingredients, as the blade reaches right down to the bottom of the bowl. I also love the dual function and the grind works equally as well - it ground a small handful of fennel seeds like a dream (which would be lost under the blade in a large processor).
    Perfect in the dishwasher, as my large processor takes up a lot more space.
    A very good buy and well worth the few extra pennies.

    I have tried quite a few small food choppers and this one may cost a little more, but looks great in the kitchen,so its worth it. Plus its also very easy to use, it chops onions very well and makes great breadcrumbs.I found the lid easy to get on and off, which was a problem with my small Kenwood one. The delivery was very very fast ordered late one day it arrived the very next day, and I also had text notification when it had been delivered. very impressed would use this company again.

    This cuisinart product has proved to be an absolute boon. My wife came out of hospital having had pureed food for 6 weeks with the recommendation that this should continue for medical reasons. How were we going to puree small amounts of meat, vegetables, salad items and more, just for one person? Step forward the Mini Processor, it copes with everything we have tried in 6 weeks of use and does the job in seconds, including sirloin steak and even lettuce. It is easy to use, takes up little space in it's permanent place on the work top and is easy to clean. It might not be the cheapest but, for our purposes, it is definitely the best.

    This is the only mini food processor with a hole in the lid for adding liquids (for making mayonnaise). The motor is really powerful, so it can only go continuously for 1 minute at a time though, so be warned. My only concern would be that the plastic on the blade appears to be cracking. It has a long guarantee, so I'm not too concerned. I love it. Despite this, I am still giving it a 5.

    It's sturdy and looks great in the kitchen. It has a very small profile and all tuckes away nicely, so it just sits on the shelf.

    I usually use this great little gadget for making hummous. I love the fact that you can chop in one direction and then blend in the other. It also makes tzatziki, aioli and all dips really well. I find it just the right amount. I also used it for finely chopping walnuts (walnut frangipane topping on mini damson tarts).

    I cannot recommed this product enough. I think its great. It lives proudly on the shelf. Only my espresso machine gets more usage.

    This little gadget is a big time saver. It can crush ice for cocktails, chop vegetable and herbs, and make salad dressings, rubs and pastes. It can also grind coffee beans and spices.

    When I originally bought it, I thought I'd only use it for the occasional, more onerous task, such as chopping onions (which takes ages and makes me cry!). In fact, it's so simple to use that I'm almost going out of my way to find recipes that incorporate the need for food processing. Recently I've used it to make the the topping for a tomato tart (basil, mascarpone and parmesan blended into a creamy paste to spread on puff pasty, before adding tomatoes), and also to make a herb crust (apples, herbs, chili flakes, oil and lemon) to serve with pork escalopes.

    The blades sit down very low to the base so that it's rare for anything to get missed when chopping. On the odd occasion it does, there's also a mini-sized spatula supplied to get down into the nooks and crannies of the bowl. Unlike larger processors I don't think it has interchangeable blades, so you won't be making dough or mixing cakes in this (it wouldn't have the capacity, anyway). But as a basic chopper and grinder, it's very good indeed.

    Smart looks, with a brushed stainless steel finish, and a weighty and well-made feel. It's so small that you can leave it out on the worktop permanently, without it getting in the way, even in a small kitchen like mine. And it's very easy to assemble, disassemble and clean. I can't comment on long-term reliability having only had it for a couple of months, but so far, so impressed!

    PS - If you use this to make cocktails you must crush the ice first, and alone, before adding any of the wet ingredients (no matter what the recipe says) - otherwise you'll end up with a terrible mess, since the violence of the ice-crushing forces all the liquid ingredients out through the holes in the lid! If you don't want a strawberry daquiri-coated kitchen heed my advice!
