If you cook and don't yet own a food processor you should, it just makes life a bit more simple. In fact I use mine all the time; tonight I'm making pesto last night I used it to chop onion and garlic its just a handy lil machine. Oh and I also like the button option that way you can pulse to achive an nice uniform chop. .
I have this and have used it repeatedly for 5 or more years. It is great, and does the job. I do not use it daily, and I only carefully handwash it. Great little gadget for small amounts, like pesto, salsa for 2-4 etc. I wouldn't be without it.
I love the mini prep. I've had mine for about 8 years and it's still going. You can make single batch pie crust, chop nuts, grind coffee... I've used it to make sofrito, salads, whip cream. It just keeps going. A plus is everything goes in the dishwasher.
This is a great replacement for the large food processor i used to waste cabinet space on. Small size is just right for small chopping jobs. Does great on bread crumbs, veggie chopping. Buy this, you won't regret it!

I like it. It's what I wanted. It works great. I make lots of pesto in it. I bought it to replace my "Magic Bullet" you know that "as seen on TV mini blender. The only little tiny thing is that I thought I was getting a polished chrome appliance, and what I got was silver colored plastic. But hey, it works fine, and I think it will last longer than my last pesto maker.
I was thinking along the lines of a food processor when I purchased this. I guess it is, however, you have so much prep to do just to utilize this. The directions state that almost everything has to be cut up specifically, before hand and then put in the processor. 1" or `-1'2 inch pieces. Too much trouble. Delivery was good, as usual and everything else good. Try and take a look at a manual ahead of this purchase.
I wanted something simple and this is very basic. At first I really liked it but after a couple uses it started leaking liquids when I would use it. I wish I would have bought a nicer version so I wouldn't have so much clean up each time.
I'm glad that I purchased this. must be honest was a little hesitate because of the refurbished title but it works like a charm and no one is the wiser. the casing and everything about the appearance was intact not a scratch or a ding on it. IT WAS DEFINITELY WORTH THE BUY!!!!
After reading almost all the reviews, I decided to order the refurbished mini chopper at a reduced price and am so glad I did. My expectations were scaled back to mini-chopper rather than full-size food processor and so far, I have not been disappointed. For small tasks, it is a great gadget to have. It is powerful, easy to clean, and small enough that storing it on the countertop is not an issue.
I purchased this for my mentally challenged daughter that has problems chewing. It does a wonderful job and it is a Cuisinart, so what more can I say. This is my second one, I like it namely because it will puree or chop, and the chopping is what I needed. It works well, is such a good buy and I always come to Overstock.com for my purchases. Who can go to a mall and look for what they need and then pay twice the price. It costs to get there in a car, our time is money and the mini Cuisinart is a great gift to me and matches my stainless steel refrig, stove, microhood and dishwasher. Adds quality to the kitchen counter. Thanks to you Overstock.com, you did it again. I will be back for more! ********* in AZ
this product is great to just throw whatever in (garlic, ginger, etc.) and have it chopped and grinded in seconds. you have to hold down the buttons based on your desired chop/grind. i had difficulties opening the actual food processor, but it may just be me. thus far it seems effective and easy to use. easy to clean as well.
