    Why Is This The Perfect Mini Processor For You?
    -----------------------------------------------

    The Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor handles a variety of food preparation tasks including chopping, grinding,
    puréeing, emulsifying and blending. The patented auto-reversing SmartPower blade provides a super-sharp edge for the
    delicate chopping of herbs and for blending and puréeing other soft foods. The blunt edge offers a powerful cutting
    surface to grind through spices and other hard foods. Pulse activation gives maximum control for precision processing,
    whether chopping or grinding. Spatula, product manual and recipe booklet included.

    Using Your Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor
    ---------------------------------------------

    The powerful high-speed 250-Watt motor works hard and fast to accomplish any small job with ease. Chop herbs, onions,
    garlic; grind spices, hard cheese, purée baby foods; blend mayonnaise and flavored butters, all with the same compact
    appliance. The Mini-Prep Plus Processor takes up minimum counter space and stores neatly on the countertop or in a
    cabinet.

    Best Practices When Using Your Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Size
    ----

    Always cut large pieces of food into smaller pieces of even size – about 1/2-Inch. If you don't start with pieces that
    are small and uniform, you will not get an even chop.

    Quantity
    --------

    You don’t want to overload the 3-Cup work bowl. Use the quantities given in the included recipe section of the product
    manual. As a rule of thumb, remember that after being processed, food should not reach more than 2/3 of the way up the
    central hub of the blade assembly.

    Selecting the Right Operating Control
    -------------------------------------

    Use the Chop function for chopping, puréeing and mixing. It’s the best option, for example, when chopping soft, fragile
    food such as herbs, celery, onions, garlic and most cheeses. It is also the right choice for puréeing cooked vegetables,
    making mayonnaise and mixing salad dressing. Pulse action is best when you are using the chop function. Two or three
    pulses are often enough.

    Use the Grind function for grinding spices, and for chopping hard food such as peppercorns, seeds, chocolate and nuts.
    Continuous-hold action is best when you are using the grind function.

    Adding Liquid
    -------------

    You can add liquids such as water, oil or flavoring while the machine is running. For example, you might want to add
    oil when making mayonnaise or salad dressing, or you could add vanilla or alcohol when making frozen yogurt. Pour the
    liquid through one of the two openings in the cover.

    Removing Food From the Sides of the Bowl
    ----------------------------------------

    Occasionally food will stick to the sides of the bowl as you process. Stop the machine to clear food away. After the
    blade has stopped moving, remove the cover, and use the spatula to scrape the food from the sides of the bowl back into
    the center.

    Cleaning and Storage
    --------------------

    Read to clean up? No problem! To simplify cleaning, rinse the work bowl, cover, and blade immediately after each use,
    so that food won’t dry on them. Wash blade assembly, work bowl, cover, and spatula in warm soapy water. If you have a
    dishwasher, you can wash the work bowl, cover, blade assembly, and spatula on the top rack.

    The Mini-Prep Plus Processor stores neatly on the countertop in a minimum of space. The hidden cord storage underneath
    the motor base will help to keep excess cord off the countertop. Store the unit assembled to prevent loss of parts.
