  • Cuisinart DLC-5 Food Processor: Coming home to Cuisinart on a smaller scale and smaller price

    Sep 22, 2009 by rudixeno is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Home and Garden
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid Build, Relatively quiet, Excellent chopping, shredding & slicing performance, reasonably priced
    Cons: 7-Cup size may be too small for some, Permanently mounted slicing/shredding disks, accessories expensive

    Summary: (Note:  As of this writing, the picture associated with this review is not the Cuisinart DLC-5, but a newer 7-cup model.)Several years ago when my circa 1980 11-cup Cuisinart Food Processor finally gave up the ghost and would ... read more

  • More than what Cuisinart makes it out to be.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durable, easy to clean, quiet, many accessories available.
    Cons: 7 cups can be too small at times. Bowl has square corners.

    Summary: Cuisinart markets this as its entry-level 7-cup food processor. As such, it can often be found on sale at department stores like Kohl's for as low as $75. What they would seemingly rather you not know, to the point where they de-listed some previously ... read more

  • Money well spent, great mid-sized processor

    May 16, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: ease of use and cleaning, price
    Cons: the size of the food chute create need for a few extra prep cuts.

    Summary: I bought this product because I was tired of slicing, dicing and shredding by hand. I also wanted to get into Once a Month Cooking (where you prepare a month’s worth of dishes in one day and freeze them for dinners throughout the month) and knew ... read more

  • My favorite appliance ever!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: This machine does everything, quickly!
    Cons: A little hard to figure out

    Summary: I was given this Cuisinart as a gift from my mother. She said it would be the most important appliance I would ever own. I wasn't so sure... I couldn't get the stupid thing to work. Its got so many parts, its hard to use, and its just bulky. Funny ... read more

  • A terrific food processor for mid-sized jobs

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sized right for most kitchens, accessories included, powerful motor, sturdy
    Cons: Feeding tube is an awkward size

    Summary: When I set out to buy my first food processor, I was looking for something smaller than the 11-cup monsters out there. This 7-cupper fit the bill, and I have been really pleased with it since I bought it a year ago. First of all, the DLC-5 is a very ... read more

  • Super buy for the money.

    Pros: Very strong 600 watt electric motor. Excellent power.
    Cons: Loose fitting top. Does not seal tightly.

    Summary: Kohl's Department Store had the DLC-5 by Cuisinart on sale for $69.00. That is 50% off list price. While the machine is designed for 6 cups and may be small for larger families, for $69.00 I had to go for it. I am well satisfied with the machine. It ... read more

  • Great for the average user

    Pros: Good value, well-made.
    Cons: Not as high-powered as other Cuisinart models.

    Summary: I enjoy cooking, but the kind of cooking I do doesn't require me to haul out a food processor very often. But when it does, I'm glad I have the DLC-5, which features the usual high Cuisinart quality but is less complicated, somewhat smaller, and much ... read more

    Pros: Don't know. Haven't used it. It's going back.
    Cons: Doesn't do what the ads on the box say it will do.

    Summary: I can't believe nobody else has noticed that, contrary to the packaging ("Effortless Dough. One touch of the easy to use paddle control lets you knead dough for pizza, bread, or a delicious dessert in minutes.") there is no attachment nor instructions ... read more

    Cons: bowl & lid breakage, bad switch

    Summary: After having diligently researched the choices and determined this would be THE food processor for me, I fearlessly plunked down my money and carted the prize home to my kitchen for some serious slicing and dicing. I really loved the machine for awhile, ... read more
