A Powerful Food Processor

The Cuisinart DLC-2009CHB is a powerful food processor that can quickly dice, chops, slice and puree for faster prep times when cooking. The work bowl included holds up to 9 cups, making it easy to prepare a full meal from scratch. The food processor comes with an extra-large feed tube for processing vegetables and whole fruits. Included with the unit are stainless steel dicks for slicing, shredding, chopping and mixing for a blade for dough kneading. A plastic spatula, instruction book with recipes and a how-to DVD are included. All the removable parts are dishwasher safe so they are easy to clean.

The Good

The food processor’s powerful 600 watts motor is incredibly quiet for such a strong machine. The wide mouth feed works great when slicing vegetables and whole fruits is necessary. The stainless plastic is easy to clean and looks great. It isn’t too big so it doesn’t take a lot of counter space. It is a stable appliance that sits all the parts fit securely on the motor base. It also works great for making things such as turkey salad all in the same unit. If you aren’t one to use a food processor every day, it can work great by helping you prep a lot of food or ingredients ahead of time. It is great at making breadcrumbs, mixing and chopping raw and cooked chicken or beef and other meats and for making salsa. All the removable parts are dishwasher safe which makes it very easy to clean. Additional blades and accessories can be purchased separately for even more options.

The Bad

Some items processed by this unit can make it harder to clean. Carrots and cheese shred nicely but the shredding disc and lid can have some of it stuck. Green onions can also get stuck under the lid easily. It is made of plastic instead of glass and the outside is also plastic. It isn’t necessarily a drawback but it cuts a little from the contemporary look.

Brushed Stainless Look

The brushed stainless plastic looks clean and great on any counter. It isn’t too big so small kitchens and dorms can still benefit from this unit without taking too much space. It features a nice, contemporary look that will not clash with other kitchen appliances.

Overall Verdict

All in all, this food processor is a great machine that runs quietly but processes powerfully. It is a beautiful unit with its brushed stainless look and it works great to make even tough items such as nut butters, turkey salad and carrot salads. The wide mouth feeder makes it easy to slice and grate vegetables and whole fruits without having to cut them ahead of time. The included DVD and recipe booklets are great additions to help you get to know the food processor better and faster. Some things may be harder to process but with time and care this unit can last a very long time.
