From the Manufacturer
Cuisinart extended the potential of every kitchen, with the introduction of the food processor in 1973. Now with the innovative Elite Collection, Cuisinart continues the pioneering tradition. Loaded with 1000 watts of peak power and innovative options, this ground breaking collection utilizes the exclusive SealTight Advantage system and a revolutionary nested bowl design to usher in the next generation of food processing. With two nested bowls, a reversible shredding disc and adjustable slicing disc (8 different options with 2 discs), a dough blade, and a versatile chopping/mixing blade, there is no limit to what you can do. The SealTight lid and blade assembly lets you utilize the maximum of each bowl's processing capacity without spills or leaks, and ensures easy cleaning and convenient handling. The motor housing base is extra-durable with a streamline design that provides a solid foundation for the demands of food processing. It's versatile, powerful, and user-friendly food processor--something consumers always expect from Cuisinart.
Features, Benefits, and Operations
Housing Base and Motor: With a vertically projecting shaft, this powerful base processes through a variety of recipes with 1000 watts of peak power.
Touchpad Control Panel: These easy to clean, electronically controlled buttons, On, Off, and Pulse, cover a host of food processing functions. The contemporary blue LED light indicates when the unit is powered on.
Work Bowls: Designed with maximum versatility, the work bowl should be based on task appropriateness. These nested bowls feature SealTight technology, which maximizes each bowl's processing capacity, ensures safe handling, and keeps all the ingredients contained in the bowl you're using! The bowls also include a locking feature to prevent them from coming out of position when pouring, and finger recesses for user-friendliness. The large and small work bowls (12 and 4 cup) are made of durable polycarbonate material with convenient measurements marking and pour spouts. Cuisinart recommends using the work bowls in a manner that will optimize efficiency. For example, if your recipe requires using both bowls, begin with the small bowl to minimize cleaning. This way the small bowl can serve as a prep bowl to reserve chopped ingredients for a recipe. Note that the bowls lock into place while nested. The convenient finger recesses can be used to remove the small bowl with ingredients, or the bowl can remain nested during pouring or food removal.
Work Bowl Cover with Feed Tube: The work bowl cover with SealTight Advantage feature allows for maximum bowl capacity during processing and pouring. To remove the work bowl cover, push in the release buttons on either side of the handle interlock. The Supreme Wide-Mouth feed tube accommodates larger ingredients and saves precutting time.
Pusher Assembly: Secured with a snap-fit, the small pusher inside the larger pusher allows you to accommodate ingredients of all sizes. The large pusher lock, located on the handle, enables it to be pulled out to lock and pushed in to unlock--this feature should be used when processing heavy loads.
SmallChopping/Mixing Blade: This small stainless steel blade will chop or mix anything in your small work bowl and also features the BladeLock system. The BladeLock feature is designed to keep the blade in place during processing, pouring, lifting, and handling tasks--but is not permanently attached. To operate the small blade place both work bowls assembled on the base, position the stem adapter over the center of the bowls, twist into position, and push down to lock. Grasp the small chopping/mixing blade by its hub, place it over the stem adapter, twist into position, and push down firmly to lock.
Large Chopping/Mixing Blade: Stainless steel in construction, this heavy-duty blade will process a variety of food in your large work bowl. The BladeLock system enables the blade to stay in place to prevent leaking, while providing optimal pouring. To operate the blade place the large work bowl assembled on the base, grasp the large chopping/mixing blade by its hub, align it over the center of the bowl, twist into position, and push down firmly to lock.
Dough Blade: Designed for superb results this blade will knead through all types of dough. The dough blade can be used only in the large bowl. To operate carefully lift and place the blade over the center hub of the work bowl by lining up the markings and sliding down the blade.
Adjustable Slicing Disc: The versatile 6-in-1 disc allows for thin to thick slices with 1 to 6mm indicators. This disc may be used only in the large bowl. When using your large bowl, position the stem adapter over the center of the bowl, twist into position, and push down to lock. If using the adjustable slicing disc, use the rotating hub and indicator markings to select the slicing thickness. Using the finger holes, align and insert the disc over the stem adapter.
Reversible Shredding Disc: Provides the option of either fine or medium shredding for optimal results. This disc may be used only in the large bowl. When using your large bowl, position the stem adapter over the center of the bowl, twist into position and push down to lock. Determine whether the fine or medium size (using the indicator markings to select thickness) use the plastic hub to twist into position on the stem adapter. The finger holes may be used for removal of this disc.
Stem Adapter: This user friendly tool easily attaches to either disc or small chopping/mixing blade to engage the motor shaft.
Cord Storage: Keeps countertops safe and clean by conveniently wrapping excess cord under the unit.
Cleaning and Storage
All parts except the housing base are dishwasher safe, and recommend washing on the top rack only. The housing base may be wiped clean with a soapy, non-abrasive material and dry after cleaning. If you wash the blades and discs by hand, do it carefully as their cutting edges are very sharp. For your safety remember when handling, use the plastic hubs on the blades and finger holes for the discs.

The powerful high-speed motor works hard and fast to accomplish small jobs with ease. Chop herbs, onions or garlic; grind spices or hard cheese; puree baby foods; blend homemade mayo and flavored butter -- all in one compact machine that is small enough to keep on the counter.

Simplicity: The Chop/Grind touchpad controls and patented auto-reversing SmartPower blade offer powerful processing options at the touch of a button.
Tips for Better Food Processing
Food size: Always cut large pieces of food into smaller pieces of even size -- about 1/2 an inch -- to produce a uniform chop.
Chop and Grind Function
Bowl fill: Do not overload the work bowl; processed food should not reach more than two-thirds of the way up the work bowl. Please note: because of the powerful motor, it is recommended to use one hand to support the chopper/grinder during operation.
Chop vs. Grind: Use the Chop function for chopping, pureeing and mixing. It is the right choice, for example, for chopping soft, fragile food such as herbs, celery, onions, garlic and most cheeses. It is also the right choice for pureeing cooked vegetables, making mayonnaise, and mixing salad dressing. Use the Grind function for grinding spices, and for chopping hard foods such as peppercorns, seeds, chocolate and nuts.
Pulse vs. Continuous-hold: Pulsing is best when you are using the chop function. Two or three pulses are often enough. Be sure to check the food frequently to prevent over processing. If you over-process, you are likely to get a watery paste instead of a fine chop. A continuous-hold is best when you are using the grind function. Depending on the food, you may have to operate the unit for several seconds to achieve the desired results -- or as long as 20 seconds for some seeds. When operating in continuous-hold, use a pulse action every 10 seconds to allow food to drop to the bottom of the work bowl. This provides more consistent results. Never operate the unit continuously for longer than one minute at a time.
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. Please note: only add liquid through one opening at a time. The other opening must be left unobstructed to allow air to escape. If both opening are blocked, liquid cannot flow smoothly into the bowl.
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 the food away. Once the blade has stopped, remove the cover and use the included spatula to scrape the food from the sides of the bowl back into the center. Do not put hands into bowl unless unit is unplugged.
Quick Start Guide
Place the work bowl firmly on the motor base. Opening the at the back of the bowl must face column at the back of the Chopper/Grinder. Turn bowl counterclockwise to lock in place.
Insert the blade assembly. Carefully pick up the blade by its hub and place on the center stem until it drops to the bottom of the stem. Firmly push to lock the blade into position. NEVER TOUCH THE BLADE ITSELF AND NOTE THE BLADE IS NOT PERMANENTLY LOCKED.
Place food in the work bowl. Be sure the food is cut into small pieces, and the bowl is not overloaded.
Lock the cover into position.
Press the appropriate Chop or Grind control, depending on the food you are processing.
When you have finished processing the food, stop the machine by releasing the control button.
ONCE THE BLADE STOPS MOVING, unplug the unit.
Remove cover and work bowl
Turn work bowl cover clockwise to remove.
Turn work bowl clockwise to unlock and lift lid off base. Note: thicker ingredients can be removed while work bowl is still on base.
To remove liquids and sauces from bowl: simply pour ingredients out of work bowl. The convenient BladeLock System keeps the blade safely in place.
To remove thicker ingredients from bowl: Carefully remove the blade assembly by holding the handle on the top of the sheath and gently pulling up to disengage blade lock. Remove food with spatula. Tips: Always process foods in order, from dry to wet, to avoid having to clean bowl and blade between each task. Never operate the Cuisinart Elite Collection Chopper/Grinder without ingredients in the work bowl.
The BladeLock System
Cleaning and Storage
To simplify cleaning, rinse the work bowl, cover, and blade immediately after each use. Wash blade assembly, work bowl, cover, and spatula in warm soapy water. Rinse and dry. Use caution when washing the blade.
Make Hummus in Minutes
Avoid leaving the blade in soapy water where it may disappear from sight. The work bowl, cover, blade assembly, and spatula can be washed on the top rack of a dishwasher. Wipe the motor base clean with a damp sponge or cloth. Dry it immediately. Never submerge the motor base or plug in water or other liquid.
The Cuisinart Elite Collection Chopper/Grinder stores neatly on the countertop in a minimum of space. When it is not in use, be sure to leave it unplugged. 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. Store the blades out of reach of children.
