Pros & Cons
The Cuisinart DLC-2009CHB Prep 9 9-Cup Food Processor has a powerful yet silent motor that efficiently slices, dices, purees and chops most of whatever you throw in it without a fuss, reducing your time in the kitchen. This versatile wizard can chop hard vegetables like carrots or potatoes, shred Parmesan cheese in minutes or even make finely mixed dough for bread! The unit comes with four different blades (two flat blades, a chopping/mixing blade and a dough blade) that are strong and easy to clean. The other accessories are a detachable disc stem, plastic spatula, recipe/instruction booklet and a how-to DVD. The step by step instructions provided in the DVD and booklet make it a cinch to assemble and take apart the appliance.
Many reviewers recommend rinsing the removable parts right after use, for there are lots of nooks and crannies for food to hide! A boon in disguise, the Cuisinart prep bowl parts are dishwasher safe, so you don't have to spend a ton of time scrubbing by hand. A fast worker, this compact device with a brushed stainless finish, looks great on any counter top!
But looks apart, few customers feel that there is some inconsistency in chopping and dicing, especially when it comes to onions and tomatoes. As one reviewer notes, onion chopping in this food processor comes with experience as one needs to learn the nuances of how to use this device effectively for that! Also the liquid capacity of the container is only 4 cups and not 9 as noted by a few.
Overall, the Prep 9 9-Cup Food Processor is a handy dandy machine that might be an expensive purchase but a great investment as it reduces the prep time in half...also you can now throw out your mandolin slicer, shredder or even the mini chopper! Got a lot of hungry mouths to feed? "Art"; up your cuisine with this powerful and efficient workhorse!
