I don't know. They're probably comparable.

At least some of the Cuisinarts have a Grind feature in addition to the chop feature. Basically the blade spins backwards and that works better for hard items like nuts. That might be a good feature for your making nut butters.

I just spoke with Cuisinart and they recommended the DLC-1SS because the blade is more durable than the CH-4DC. Amazon has it for $33.

It looks like the DLC-1SS that Cuisinart recommended has both chop and grind functions. What is the difference in how each function is used in food prep?

You would use the CHOP feature for softer foods like veggies and herbs and the GRIND feature for hard ingredients like nuts, spices etc. The FP has two buttons that are labeled CHOP and GRIND. The GRIND button spins the blue backwards so the blunt edge is doing the work of grinding.

Thanks Andy That's very helpful. I think I'm going to order the Cuisinart DLC-1SS. Just saw that I can download the manual from Cuisinart's website in advance. I'm sure it will be better than using a Nutribullet!

ISO mini food processor for nut butters

I have a little 4 cup KA FP, it's a workhorse. Had it for years. It does a great job with almond butter, and anything else I've used it for.
