A short but very helpful review from good housekeeping
Great in depth, informative review over at KitchenApplicatesHQ
One of the reviewers on Amazon says
“The 9 cup capacity is the food processor and the blender combine. The food processor holds 4 cups so I have to work in batches.”
Is this true? Or is the processor itself truly 9 cups? Can someone confirm this?
With 9 cups of room in there, there’s plenty of room for experimentation and customizing the ultimate processed meal.
It even includes a 40-ounce blender for mixing up your favorite smoothie or margarita.
I would say it’s a 9 cup processor and a 40 oz blender.
I don’t know . . .
Wet Bowl Working Capacity: 4-1/4 Cups
Is the bowl or blender glass?
4 cup food processor, 5 cup blender.
I own this, the bowl and blender are both a heavy plastic, not glass.
Just bought one last night at Tuesday mornings 49.99.
Not so. Check out this site for wet bowl capacity, which is usually half of dry/full capacity due to the height of the blades: Capacity
A food processor is classified according to its dry ingredient capacity. This ranges from one to twenty cups. “Dry” is the operative word here. The liquid capacity will be about half that for dry ingredients, because filling the bowl above the level of the blade housing may cause leaking while the machine is running, as anyone who has tried to purée too much tomato sauce at once has found out.
Full-size models of at least 9 cups, but preferably 11-14 cups, are the most versatile. Midsize models of 6-8 cups are sufficient for the average home cook and mini processors with a capacity of less than 5 cups are handy for small chopping jobs like a few cloves of garlic or a handful of parsley. Caterers and others who frequently cook in quantity may want to consider a professional size 20-cup model.
Also her are the specs from the manufacturer: http://www.delonghi.com/en-US/products/kitchen/kitchen-appliances/food-processors/dfp250-0WFP950011/?TabSegment=specifications
Might spring for one.
So, first of all, I’m not buying one of these as I have no need (I’m covered on both the blender and FP fronts). And I know I’m sacrificing any attempt at a HP by mentioning lower pricing from the mothership, but oh well…
So even if I was considering one of these, I’d be frustrated because just last month this was $50 shipped from amazon (check out camel^3). Maybe that’s crying over spilt milk, but if you’re on woot, you’re most likely looking for a deal.
I initially told someone to consider this at that price, but after reading some of the reviews, I recanted. It seems to be not a great blender and not a great food processor combined into one. Now, maybe I’m looking at this from somewhat of a snooty perspective as I use both of mine a LOT, so maybe it would be fine for a college student or someone with a small kitchen who only needs/wants them occasionally. But for me… nope.
As a side note, the amazon reviews point to this being 9 cup FP and 5 cup blender.
We found these at a local store on sale (not as cheap as this deal) and bought one of them for my mom for her birthday earlier this year, and she loves it. She uses it a good bit, and it seems to work pretty well. She kind of needed a new blender too, so it worked out well. We like that it’s got a smaller footprint (doesn’t have a big motor sticking off to one side) and doesn’t take up a ton of counter space. Instead of having a bunch of different blade discs for various slicing/shredding sizes, the discs that come with this have a different cut on each side, so you can just flip them from one side to the other, saving from having as many accessories. We liked it enough that we bought another one for my fiances dad for his birthday too. At this price you really can’t go wrong.
