I don't know the answer to that question.

I'm going to call Cuisinart and ask them. Will post their answer.

Mine is the 14-cup model with the multiple bowls. At first I wasn't sure how frequently I would use one bowl over another but, in time (nearly a full year now), I can't imagine not having the flexibility of the different-sized bowls. Just my feedback for your information-gathering process.

Thanks Katie. Sounds like having multiple bowls is a great feature. I'm wondering if any of the other models have that.

We have a KA 11 cup (that has the inner bowl) and a Cuisenart 4 cup. We have never used the inner bowl on the KA.

If you currently have a mini FP, you don't really need a two bowl FP.

My challenge is counter space!

Update: I called Cuisinart today, and they recommended the DLC-10S (7 cup) and the DLC-8S. The customer service person said that they get the least number of repair requests on these two models, and both can handle the small quantities used in the Mini Prep.

What kinds of recipes - besides those for shakes - would require a blender rather than a food processor?

Blender for liquids. FP for solids.

FP are not very good at processing liquids. They can only take a very small amount or will overflow through the center tube opening and leak all over the place.

Blenders are not very good at blending dry items. Some liquid is needed to keep the food moving into the blades.

I have a large and a mini FP and a blender to address various kitchen tasks. None are kept out on the counter when not in use. I don't have a lot of space either.
