3.0 out of 5 stars Not overly impressed, 20 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Cuisinart Mini Food Processor - Silver (Kitchen & Home)
I don't wish to completely pan this product but it doesn't really live up to my expectations. I am keen on Indian cookery and bought this because I thought it would work as a spice grinder and a processor for smallish quantities of paste (garlic, ginger, onion, coconut, nuts etc.). It does a reasonable job of processing the soft stuff provided it's full enough (a small quantity just gets blasted onto the lid at the first touch of the chop button!) but it doesn't cope well with things like coriander seeds. I made a batch of garam masala as soon as I got the machine - it took ages and the consistency was still quite seedy. I am dubious about the coffee grinding capability claims. My advice to someone cooking this type of stuff would be to but an electric coffe grinder for the dry spices and a powerful hand blender with a bowl attachment for paste processing. Still, the cuisinart is probably quite good for baby food. It's also taken quite a beating from me and hasn't broken down yet (unlike other blenders I've had) and it does look quite good sitting in the corner.
