Cuisinart ECH4U Mini Food Processor : Great addition to worktop

This is a replacement for a previous model that has been retired due to old age and valiant service.

Perfect little food processor. It’s bigger than most mini processors but not too big that it can’t sit on the worktop. Great power, makes a fab pesto. You could fit approx 3 medium onions cut in half in to the bowl and chops with ease.

Bought for my daughter for uni. Solidly made, works well, very popular with her housemates.

Great little machine for a single person. Does a great job grinding, chopping and blending to a smooth sauce.

The medium size is manageable. The ‘chop and grind’ functions perform as promised in the leaflet guide. Yes, i’m pleased with this item.

Ideal for my tiny kitchen as no room for lots of big appliances but i love to cook. It chops,grinds,whips,mixes etc. My go to item whenever i cook.

Small, mighty and easy to clean. Despite its diminutive size this is a powerhouse of a blender.

Does the job – pretty simple design and functionality but what more do you need. Smaller than i expected but still a well made product.

Bought this to replace and earlier model which fell apart from about 15 years regular use. The body (motor) is much lighter than the previous one but this doesn’t affect its stability. For a small processor it works really well if you only use small amounts. The bowl, lid and blade go in the dishwasher no problemit arrived well packed and withing the expected date. Hopefully will last as long as the previous one.

Wow, what a super, compact little chopper/blender.

Bigger than a lot of the small processors and very easy to use.

Ideal for smaller quantities when you’re not batch cooking. Well-made, great functionality, intuitive to use.

This little gadget & me are already best friends – it’s not just a pretty face. I’m trying to be more healthy/less lazy by cooking at home rather than living off microwave/ready meals – which are not good for you if that’s all you eat. So gadgets like this greatly reduce the time consuming chore of chopping and dicing, etc, for meal preparations. Today, i made a tartiflette and a potato salad. This powerful little food processor did a beautiful job of chopping an onion and finely chopping some chives. As long as its built to last, i’ll be very happy.

Great little machine that does such a lot.

Great quality product with fast delivery.

This feels very ‘plasticcy’, not very robust. The blade stays in the bowl and so should only really be cleaned in a dishwasher. The problem with that is that however you put the bowl in the dishwasher, you get residual water at the end, which is not good. On the plus side the performance is fine, both blending and chopping. It remains to be seen how long this lasts.

Cuisinart ECH4U Mini Food Processor, Silver

Easy to use and produces the perfect results required.

I use this for making hummus – it’s brilliant. The ‘chop’ and ‘grind’ buttons rotate the blade in opposite directions for maximum effect. The bowl takes a can of chickpeas and about half a can of other ingredients with ease. I love the fact that the bowl and blade can go in the dishwasher, unlike a previous model i owned. I am delighted i bought this.

Well made and very good for chopping /grind.

Had a blender for 10 yrs and eventually it failed. Needed a replacement and cuisinart was recommended.

Quite a handy small food processor, its size means it can be easily stored on the worktop ready to be used whenever needed. Only used a few times so far to make pesto sauce and hummus, and happy with the result. I was a little disappointed however as it is marketed as ‘stainless steel’ which only the blade is, but the main casing is made out of plastic so perhaps a little overpriced.

Easy to clean in the dishwasher.

Good for the price, and does everything that is expected of it. Only one speed but that is ok, it does a good job.
