INTRODUCTION
The Cuisinart® Mini-Prep® Processor
handles a variety of food preparation
tasks including chopping, grinding,
puréeing, emulsifying and blending.
The patented two-position blade
provides a super-sharp edge for the
delicate chopping of herbs, and for
blending and puréeing other soft foods,
while the blunt edge offers a powerful
cutting surface to grind through coffee
beans, spices and other hard foods.
Two operating speeds with pulse
activation give maximum control for
precision processing.
A powerful high-speed motor works
hard and fast to accomplish any small
job with ease. Chop herbs, onions,
garlic; grind coffee beans, spices,
hard cheese; purée baby foods; blend
mayonnaise and flavored butters all
with the same compact appliance.
The Mini- Prep® takes up a minimum
of counter space and stores neatly on
the countertop or in a cabinet.

HOLDING RIBS (grips) ONLY. DO NOT
TOUCH THE RAZOR-SHARP BLADES.
Before you process any food,
assemble the parts and try the HI and
LO processing speeds to get a feel for
how your Mini-Prep® Processor works.
BLUNT SIDE UP
• There are notches (C) on opposite
sides of the interior of the hub.
These fit over ridges on the sides of
the Sheath.
1. Place the Motor Base on a flat, dry,
stable surface. It should be close
to an electrical outlet of the same
voltage as that stated on the bottom
of the unit.
2. Locate part number on bottom of
Prep Bowl. Place the Prep Bowl on
the motor base with the Prep Bowl
part number slightly to the left of
center, then rotate it counterclockwise
until it locks and clicks into position.
Rotate Prep Bowl following direction
of Bowl Lock arrows printed on
motor base.
3. Connect the Blade Assembly to the
Blade Sheath. HOLD THE BLADE

• The Assembly can be placed over
the Sheath in two different ways.
If you hold it this way (A), you will
see the word "Sharp" on the blade.
Assemble the blade this side up to use
the sharp edge. (See the section on

SHARP SIDE
If you hold it this way (B), you will see
no writing on the blade. Assemble the
blade this side up to use the blunt edge.
(See the section on processing food
for infor-mation about when to use the
blunt edge.)
Place the Sheath, handle side up,
on a flat surface. Pick up the Blade
Assembly by its hub holding ribs (grips)
and line up the notches in the interior of
the hub with the ridges on the sides of
the Sheath. Let the Blade Assembly
slide down to the bottom of the Sheath.
Lift the Sheath by its handle. Hold the
Blade Assembly by its hub holding
ribs (grips) and turn it very slightly
clockwise. This locks it in place on
the Sheath and prevents it from
sliding up during processing.
4. Hold the Sheath by
its top handle, place
it over the central
opening of the Bowl,
and slide the Sheath

TIPS FOR PROCESSING
FOOD
Preparing the Food
Size:
Always cut large pieces of food into
smaller pieces of even size – about 1/2
inch (12mm) to a side. If you don't start
with pieces that are small and uniform,
you will not get an even chop.
Quantity:
Do not overload the Prep Bowl.
Overloading causes inconsistent
results and it strains the motor. Use the
quantities given in the recipe section as
a guide. As a rule of thumb, remember
that after being processed, food should
not reach more than 2/3 of the way up
the Sheath of the Blade Assembly.
Selecting the Right Blade Edge
Use the sharp edge for chopping,
puréeing and mixing. It is the right
choice, for example, for chopping soft,
fragile food such as herbs, celery, onions,
garlic and most cheese. It is also
the right choice for puréeing cooked
vegetables, making mayonnaise and
mixing salad dressing.
Use the blunt edge for grinding coffee
beans and spices, and for chopping
hard food such as peppercorns, seeds,
chocolate and nuts.
Selecting the Right Operating Speed
Use low speed (LO Lever) for chopping,
puréeing, and mixing food with the
sharp edge of the blade.
Use high speed (HI Lever) for grinding
and for chopping hard food with the
blunt edge of the blade.
Note: Due to the powerful motor
provided with this unit, Cuisinart
recommends using one hand to support
the Mini-Prep® during operation. This is
especially true of the Hi speed.
Selecting the Right Lever Action
Pulse action is best when you are using
the sharp edge of the blade. Two or
three pulses are often enough. Be sure
to check the food frequently to prevent
overprocessing. If you overprocess, you
are likely to get a watery paste instead of
a fine chop.
Continuous-hold action is best when
you are using the blunt edge of the
blade. You may have to operate the
Mini-Prep® Processor for several
seconds to achieve the desired
results with some food - as long as
20 seconds for some seeds, or 40
seconds for coffee beans.
When you operate the unit for more than
10 seconds, use a pulse action every 10
seconds or so to allow food to drop to
the bottom of the Prep Bowl. This
provides more consistent results.
02CU13237 DLC-1 Series IB rev.
6/30/03
12:00 PM
Never operate the Mini-Prep®
continuously for longer than
1 minute at a time.
Note: The Prep Bowl and Cover may
become scratched when you use them
for grinding coffee, grain and spices.
This does not affect the performance
of the Mini-Prep® Processor. However,
you may want to reserve that bowl for
grinding, and purchase an additional
bowl and cover set for other uses.
These are available from the Cuisinart®
Customer Service Department, which
you can reach by dialing our toll-free
number: 800-726-0190. Ask for Model
DLC-195A when ordering.

Adding Liquid
You can add liquids such as water, oil or
flavoring while the machine is running.
You might want to add oil when making
mayonnaise or salad dressing, for
example. Or you could add vanilla or
alcohol when making frozen yogurt.
Pour the liquid through one of the two
openings in the cover. IMPORTANT:
Add liquid through only one opening at a
time. The other opening must be left free
for air to escape. If both openings are
blocked, liquid cannot flow smoothly
into the bowl.
Page 7
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 it away. AFTER THE
BLADE HAS STOPPED MOVING, remove
the cover, and use the spatula to scrape
the food from the sides of the bowl back
into the center.
Reversing the Blade in the Middle of
a Processing Task
While preparing some recipes, you may
want to switch the blade from sharp to
blunt or vice versa.
1. Be sure neither of the Control Levers
is pressed down.
PROCESSING FOOD
1. Place the Prep Bowl firmly on the
motor base and insert the Blade
Assembly. Be sure the blade is
assembled to use the blade edge
that is appropriate for the food to
be processed.
2. Place food in the Prep Bowl. Be
sure the food is cut in small pieces,
and the bowl is not overloaded.
3. Lock the Cover into position.

holding it by its Hub Holding Ribs. Turn
blade upside-down and reinsert it on
the Sheath.
4. Press the appropriate SpeedControl Lever – LO or HI, depending
on the food you are processing.
5. When you have finished processing
the food, stop the machine by
releasing the Speed-Control Lever.
6. WHEN THE BLADE STOPS MOVING,
remove the Cover.
6a. Unplug the unit.
7. Insert the Sheath over the central
opening of the empty bowl.

CAJUN SPICE BLEND
The DLC-1 Mini-Prep® Processor grinds
spices to a homogeneous fine blend.
Comparable prepared spice mixtures
cost more and are not as fresh as those
you make yourself.
This blend of spices is an excellent
seasoning to rub on fish, poultry or pork.
It can also be added to bread crumbs for
use as a coating or stuffing. For a milder
spice blend, reduce the amount of white
peppercorns, cayenne pepper and chili
powder to taste.
