I used to have Cuisinart DLC-1SS, it is by far inferior to new 4 cup processor.

Do you mean in comparison to the CH-4DC?

Does anyone have the Cuisinart DLC-2A 3 cup processor? Here’s a link to it:

I'd have look up exact number. Sorry won't be able to do this till Sunday.
But any cuisinart I have had and I have few, 6 to be exact, plus one I gave to my parents. The 3 cup one I mentioned that was not as good (thought it is still very good and my parents are still using. I bought it when my younger son was born, I cooked and smooshed all his food, he never ate store bought baby food. He is turning 21, G-d willing, this coming June).
So any cuisinart is a good buy.


P.S. I think you are overthinking this. If you have Costco near by, check out. They do not have it online, but in store here they do 4 cup for $19.99.

I'm bummed that there isn't a Costco near me. The cheapest price I've found for the CH-4DC is $53 on Amazon

At this point I'm thinking of getting Cuisinart's lower end 3 cup processor (the DLC-2A) which is $39.99 at Bed Bath.

I think that would be fine.

Thanks Andy. I just bought it, and the salesperson gave me a 20% discount and free shipping! He pointed out that a mini food processor would be easier to clean than the Nutribullet after making nut butter. After my experience trying the Nutribullet again last night I'm sure I'll agree. My Mini Prep should arrive early next week. Can't wait to try it!

I like that all the parts (except the base) can go in the dishwasher for easy clean-up.

That's awesome. Nut butters can be a mess to clean up, so I'm glad that the work bowl and blade can go in the dishwasher. It took a lot of work to get the nut butter out from under the Nutribullet blade, and it isn't dishwasher safe.

I just noticed that my 7 cup Cuisinart Pro Classic doesn't have a grind function, just "on" and "pulse." Is that typical for most food processors? The 3.5 cup Cuisinart Mini Prep I just bought has both chop and grind functions. So I'm guessing I can use the Mini Prep for peppercorns and coffee beans but not the Pro Classic?
