New Goodie: Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus

Rob bought me a fancy Kitchen-Aid food processor for our anniversary last year. It had all the bells and whistles with nine-cup capacity and a four-cup mini bowl. It was everything I thought I had wanted at the time. After using a handful of times, I realized that it was poorly designed, the bowl was deep but the tube/hole that the blade inserted into was so short that it leaked every time I used it. Since I have a good chef's knife and a Kitchen-Aid stand mixer, I found that I was only using the mini-bowl so I returned it and bought this instead...

I have it in black and I LOVE IT! It's so light and small, easy to pull out and return to the cupboard, it doesn't take up much space and it's very easy to clean. It's got a 3 cup bowl and a super sharp blade. I don't use it to chop veggies but it makes the best pesto, perfect bread crumbs, grinds hard cheese in an instant. It's fast, powerful and does not leak!

If you need a food processor but think a big one will be too much machine or too pricey, try this little gem out. It's on the list of my favorite kitchen essentials. Which I'll post if anyone is interested, let me know.
