I finally commit myself to a 'proper' processor! Although it is a 'mini' one but I guess it should be more than enough for me, hopefully with this processor my cooking skill can progress a level higher with homemade dipping sauce and chilli sauce! Fresh homemade laksi lemak soon?
I have waited for the price to drop from USD39 to USD27 and free shipping from bonton.com!
I miss the boat when Lowe was selling it at USD25 and was so pissed at myself!
So when I told hubs he rushed me to buy it!
Cuisinart® Mini-Prep® Processor
Color: Brushed Stainless
Powerful chopper/grinder; 21-ounce work bowl; 2 speeds for precision chopping
Patented reversible blade chops or grinds; brushed stainless steel base Measures 6.9 by 5.2 by 8.25 inches; weighs 2.67 pounds
The Cuisinart Mini-Prep food processor stands 8 inches tall and just over 4 inches wide, but don't let the size fool you. The base houses a motor so powerful that you need to stabilize it with one hand when using the high setting to whip up a strawberry-banana smoothie for one in less than a minute. The clear plastic prep bowl locks into place with a simple twist, while the blades can be set sharp side up for chopping onions or grating Parmesan cheese, or turned blunt side up for making walnut pesto or whipping up chocolate frosting. The set includes a spatula and a cleaning brush to remove coffee grounds.
For best results, cut ingredients into small, even pieces--about 1/2-inch square or so works well. In general, use the sharp-edge approach for low speed and the blunt side of the blades for high speed. If you need to run the motor for longer than one minute, pause and begin again. The bowl, cover, and blade assembly can all be run through the dishwasher, but watch your fingers when dissembling the machine, as the blades are extremely sharp. --Irene Svete
