Your Cuisinart® Pro Custom 11™
Food Processor is a compact and
versatile appliance that chops,
minces, shreds, grates, slices,
blends, purées, emulsifies, mixes
and kneads - all with great
efficiency and speed. The large
feed tube allows you to make
whole slices of large fruits and
vegetables like potatoes, tomatoes
and apples.
The machine includes:
l. Motor base with a vertically
projecting shaft and two large
control levers.
The metal blade chops raw and
cooked fruits, vegetables, meat, fish
and cheese to the exact consistency
you want - from coarse to fine, even
to a purée. You control the texture.
It chops nuts, makes nut butters,
mayonnaise and sauces, and mixes
tender, flaky pastry. The metal blade
also mixes cakes, frosting, cookies,
quick breads, muffins and biscuits.
The dough blade mixes and kneads
more efficiently than the metal blade
when your recipe calls for more
than 3-1/2 cups (875 mL) of flour.
A locking device prevents heavy
dough from driving the blade up
on the shaft.
2 Work bowl.
3. Cover with a large feed tube.
4. Pusher assembly that slides
over the feed tube.
5. Compact cover with cap for
chopping/baking.
6. Sharp metal chopping/
mixing blade.
7. Plastic dough blade.
8. Two serrated slicing discs: 1
medium and 1 thin.
9. Shredding disc.
10. Detachable stem that fits
all discs.
11. Plastic spatula.
The standard slicing disc makes
beautiful whole slices. It slices
whole fruits and vegetables,
cooked meat, semi-frozen raw
meat and thin loaves of bread.
The thin slicing disc is perfect
for slicing cabbage, onions,
radishes, mushrooms, celery,
potatoes and cucumbers.
The medium shredding disc
processes most firm and hard
cheese into long, attractive
shreds. It also shreds vegetables
like potatoes, carrots and zucchini, and processes nuts and
chocolate to a grated texture.
The detachable stem fits
all discs, making storage
easy in limited space.
The pusher assembly
has 3 parts.

1. The small removable white
pusher fits into the small feed
tube. This tube is for narrow food
like carrots, for adding liquid, and
for continuous feeding of small
hard food like garlic.
2. The large pusher is
permanently attached to the
sleeve, but moves freely within
it – except when the slide lock
on the sleeve is locked in place
over the large feed tube.
3. The bottom sleeve has two
descending tabs. One locks the
sleeve to the work bowl (white
lock); the other pushes down
an activating rod at the back
of the bowl, permitting the
motor to start.

Try chopping some practice foods
before you process food to eat.
A zucchini or potato is a good
choice. First cut into 1-inch
pieces.
Insert the metal blade and put
the pieces in the work bowl.
Put on the cover; press the pusher
assembly down to lock it into
place. Press and release the
OFF/PULSE lever two or three
times and see what happens.
Each time the blade stops, let the
pieces drop to the bottom of the
bowl before you pulse again.
That puts them in the path of the
blade each time the motor starts.
Using the pulse/chopping
technique, you can get an even
chop without danger of overprocessing. Check the texture
frequently by looking through the
cover of the work bowl. If you
want a finer chop, press and
release the OFF/PULSE lever until
you achieve the desired texture.
Onions and other food with a high
water content will quickly end up
as a purée unless examined
through the work bowl after each
pulse to make sure they are not
overprocessed.
Try chopping other food, like meat
for hamburger or sausage. Then
make mayonnaise, pastry or
bread, as described in the recipes
in this book. To obtain consistent
results:
Be sure all the pieces you
add to the bowl are about the
same size.
Be sure the amount you
process is no larger than
recommended. (See page 26).

Before you do anything, wait for
the blade to stop spinning.
Once it does, remove the cover
first. You can remove the cover
and pusher assembly in one
operation. Hold the pusher
assembly with your fingers away
from the descending tabs and
turn it clockwise. Lift it off, and
the cover will come with it.

Never try to remove the cover
and the work bowl together;
this may damage the work bowl.
Always remove the bowl from
the base of the machine before
removing the blade, as the blade
creates a seal to prevent food
from leaking. Turn the bowl clockwise to unlock it from the base,
and lift it straight up to remove.
To prevent the blade from falling
out of the work bowl onto your
hand, use one of the three
methods shown. Be sure your
hands are dry. Remove the metal
blade before tilting the bowl (1.),
using a spatula to scrape off
any food. Or insert your finger
through the hole in the bottom of
the work bowl, gripping the blade
from the bottom, and grip the
outside of the work bowl with
your thumb (2.). Or hold the
blade in place with your finger
or a spatula while pouring out
processed food (3.).

To chop raw fruits
and vegetables
Cut the food into 1-inch pieces.
You get a more even chop when
all pieces are about the same size.
Put no more than the
recommended amount of food
into the work bowl. (See page
26). Lock the cover in place.
Press the OFF/PULSE lever at the
rate of 1 second on, 1 second off
until the food is coarsely
chopped. Then hold down the
OFF/PULSE lever, letting the
machine run continuously until
the food is chopped. Check
frequently to avoid overprocessing.
Use the spatula to scrape down
any pieces that stick to the sides.

To purée fruit and
cooked vegetables
Cut the food into 1-inch pieces.
You get a smoother purée faster
when all pieces are about equal in
size. Put no more than the
recommended amount of food
in the work bowl. (See page 26).
Lock the cover in place. Pulse to
chop coarsely, then press the ON
lever and process continuously
until the food is puréed. (NOTE:
Cooked potatoes are an exception
to this procedure. They develop a
gluey texture when processed
with the metal blade. See the
recipe for mashed potatoes at the
end of the book.)

spoon. They will purée faster
and smoother without liquid.
Then add just enough liquid
to make the purée pourable,
return it to the soup liquid
and stir to combine.
When making soup, you will

may become wedged between
the blade and the work bowl.
If this happens, remove the cover,
lift the blade out carefully and
remove the wedged piece.
Empty the bowl, reinsert the
blade and lock the cover into
place, first removing the small
pusher. Press the ON lever and
drop the food pieces through
the small feed tube while the
machine is running. After adding
a cupful this way, add the
remaining food to the bowl
and process in the usual way.

To chop hard food like garlic,
hard cheese
Small foods like garlic can be
dropped in whole. Larger foods
like hard cheese should be cut
into 1-inch pieces. Remove the
small pusher, press the ON lever
and drop the food through the
small feed tube while the machine
is running.
This method of processing
minces garlic, shallots and
onions. Hard cheese and coconut
will have the same texture as if
they had been hand grated.
IMPORTANT: Never try to process
cheese that is too hard to cut
with a knife. You may damage the
blade or the machine.
To chop parsley and other
fresh herbs
The herbs, the work bowl and the
metal blade must all be thoroughly clean and dry. Remove stems
from herbs. Add leaves to bowl
and process until they are
chopped as fine as you want.
The more herbs you chop at a
time, the finer chop you can
obtain. If completely dry when
chopped, parsley and other herbs
will keep for at least 10 days,
stored in an airtight bag in the
refrigerator. They may be frozen
for months, stored in an airtight
container or bag.
To chop peel from citrus fruit
(zest) or to chop sticky fruit like
dates or raisins
For citrus, remove only the peel
(zest) with a vegetable peeler. Do
not remove the white pith, which
is bitter tasting. Cut the peel into
lengths of 2 inches or less and
process with 1/2 cup of granulated
sugar from the recipe until finely
chopped. This may take 2 minutes
or longer.
COMPACT FLAT COVER
Use the Compact Cover for added
convenience when your recipe
calls for chopping, mixing, puréeing
and kneading. It is particularly
useful when you are preparing
baked goods such as cakes,
cookies, pies and breads.
For sticky fruit like dates, raisins,
prunes and candied fruit, first
freeze the fruit for about 10
minutes. Add to it some of the
flour called for in the recipe. Use
no more than 1 cup of flour for
each cup of fruit.

metal blade or dough blade in
place. Place the Compact Cover
on the work bowl so that the
Cuisinart logo written on the
cover is face up and readable.
Then turn cover COUNTERCLOCKWISE to lock into place.
Make sure the small cap is in
place before using.
To disassemble the
Compact Cover:
Place one hand near the Cuisinart
logo and one hand on opposite
end of cover; turn cover
CLOCKWISE. Lift cover up
and off work bowl. Do not use
the Compact Cover with any of
the slicing or shredding discs.

To chop meat, poultry, fish
and seafood
The food should be very cold, but
not frozen. Cut it into 1-inch
pieces to ensure an even chop.
Process no more than the
recommended amount at a time.
(See page 26). Press the
OFF/PULSE lever 3 or 4 times at
a rate of 1 second on, 1 second
off. If the food is not chopped
fine enough, let the processor run
continuously for a few seconds.
Check the texture often to avoid
overprocessing. Use a spatula to
scrape food from the sides of the
bowl as necessary.

To purée meat, poultry, fish
and seafood
Prepare the food as described
above. Pulse until it is evenly
chopped, then process
continuously to the desired
texture. Scrape the bowl
with a spatula as needed.
Leave the purée in the work
bowl and add eggs, cream
and seasonings as called for
by the recipe. Process to
combine thoroughly.
Remember you control texture by
the length of time you process.

To chop nuts
Chop no more than the
recommended amount at one
time. (See page 26). Press and
release the OFF/PULSE lever and
check frequently to avoid letting
powdered nuts clump together
in a nut butter.
When a recipe calls for flour or
sugar, add some to the nuts
before you chop them— about
1/2 cup for each cup of nuts. This
allows you to chop the nuts as
fine as you want without turning
them into a nut butter.
You can also chop nuts with a
shredding disc. The optional
Fine Shredding Disc is
particularly good.

To make peanut butter and
other nut butters
Process up to the recommended
amount of nuts. (See page 26).
Let the machine run continuously.
After 2 or 3 minutes, the ground
nuts will form a ball that will
gradually smooth out. Scrape the
sides of the bowl and continue
processing until drops of oil are
visible. Taste for consistency. The
longer you process, the softer the
butter will be. For chunk style,
add a handful of nuts just after
the ball of nut butter begins to
smooth out. To make cashew
butter, add a little bland vegetable
oil. Processor nut butters contain
no preservatives. Store in the
refrigerator to keep them from
separating.
To make flavored butter,
spreads and dips
Cut room-temperature butter
into tablespoon size pieces and
reserve. Process flavoring
ingredients first—anchovies,
cheese, herbs, etc.—chopping
them fine. Be sure the work bowl
is clean and dry. Then add small
hard ingredients like garlic and
hard cheese through the feed
tube while the machine is running.
Next, add the butter pieces and
process until smooth. Add any
liquid ingredients last, while the
processor is running, and
process just long enough to
blend. Process ingredients for
spreads and dips in the same way.
All ingredients should be at room
temperature and cut into 1-inch
cubes, or added by tablespoonfuls.

TECHNIQUES FOR CHOPPING AND
PURÉEING WITH THE METAL BLADE

To make mayonnaise
You can make foolproof homemade mayonnaise with your
Pro Custom 11™. The work
bowl and metal blade must be
clean and dry.
Foods prepared with raw eggs
may contain salmonella or other
potentially harmful bacteria.
Because egg yolks are a fine
growth medium for bacteria, we
recommend that you cook them
for use in mayonnaise,
Hollandaise sauce, Caesar salad
dressing, chilled soufflés, chilled
chiffons, mousses and other
recipes calling for raw egg yolks.
For mayonnaise, we recommend
using either the “cooked egg”
mayonnaise on page 38, or using
the following method with pasteurized liquid eggs.
For a “one egg” batch of basic
mayonnaise made with pasteurized liquid eggs, place 1/4 cup
pasteurized liquid eggs, 2 tablespoons wine vinegar or lemon
juice, 1 teaspoon dry mustard,
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and a
pinch of ground white pepper in
the work bowl. With the machine
running, add 1/2 cup of vegetable
oil to the small pusher and allow
to slowly drip into the mixture
while processing. After all the oil
has dripped through, add another
1/2 cup of vegetable oil to the
small pusher and allow to drip
through. The mixture will form a
thick emulsion. For variation, you
may experiment with using flavored vinegars, adding chopped
fresh herbs, dry herbs, or roasted
garlic to taste. To make your
mayonnaise a little lighter, add
some well-drained plain fat-free
yogurt to taste.
To beat egg whites
The work bowl and metal blade
must be absolutely clean.
Add 3 or more egg whites and
press the ON lever. Add about
1 teaspoon of lemon juice or
vinegar for every egg white.
Vinegar makes stiffer whites;
its flavor is hardly detectable
in cakes or soufflés. Continue
processing until the egg whites
hold their shape - about 1-1/2 to
2-1/2 minutes.
Egg whites may be folded into
batters and baked. We do not
recommend serving uncooked
egg whites.

To whip cream
Processor whipped cream holds
its shape very well. It is good for
decoration or as a topping for
gingerbread, berries and other
desserts.
Chill the cream well before
starting. Using the Metal blade
process continuously until it
begins to thicken; add sugar as
desired and continue processing.
Watch carefully until the cream
reaches the desired consistency.
For consistently reliable results,
add 2 tablespoons of non-fat
dried milk for every cup of cream,
before whipping.
Processor whipped cream does
not whip to the light, fluffy consistency obtained by methods that
beat in more air. Use the optional
Whisk Attachment for the fluffiest
whipped cream.
To make bread, cracker and
cookie crumbs and crumb crusts
Cut or break bread, crackers or
cookies into 1-inch pieces and
put them in the work bowl.
Process continuously until they
reach the desired texture. For
seasoned crumbs, chop parsley
or other fresh herbs with the
crumbs. For buttered crumbs,
process until the dry crumbs are
of the desired texture, then
dribble melted butter through
the small feed tube while the
machine is running.
For crumb crusts, process
crackers or cookies as described
above. Add sugar, spices and butter, cut into 1-inch pieces,
as specified by your recipe.
Process until well combined.
To make pastry
This describes the general
procedure. A recipe giving exact
proportions is on page 39.
Combine unbleached all-purpose
flour, salt and 1-inch pieces of
very cold butter in the work bowl.
Process to the consistency of
cornmeal. While the machine is
running, pour ice water through
the feed tube. Stop processing as
soon as the dough begins to form
a ball, to ensure tender, flaky pastry.
Use the dough immediately or
form it into a round disc about
1 inch thick. Wrap it in plastic
wrap and refrigerate or freeze
for later use.
To make quick breads, and
cakes that use baking powder
and/or soda.
The most important rule for
success is not to overmix
after the flour is added.
The ingredients for these soft
doughs should be cold. If the
recipe calls for chopped
ingredients like lemon peel
or nuts, chop them first while
the work bowl is clean and dry.
Then set them aside until needed.
(Always use sugar when chopping lemon peel; see page 7.)
Put dry ingredients like flour, salt
and leavening in the work bowl
and process with the metal blade
for 5 seconds to mix them.
Remove and reserve the dry
ingredients.
Add the eggs and sugar to the
work bowl and process to mix,
letting the machine run about 1
minute. Next, add 1-inch pieces
of butter, at room temperature.
Let the machine run continuously
for a minute, until the butter is
thoroughly mixed with the sugar
and eggs. Then add flavoring and
liquid – vanilla, spices, cocoa,
etc. Process until mixed. Add the
dry ingredients to the work bowl.
Process by pulsing, inspecting
after each pulse. Stop pulsing as
soon as the dry ingredients have
almost disappeared into the batter. Overprocessing will cause
quick breads and cakes to be
tough. (If your recipe calls for
ingredients that are to be
coarsely chopped - like raisins
or nuts - add them last with the
mixed dry ingredients.)
To make cake mix
Your food processor work bowl is
large enough for the preparation of
an 18.5-ounce packaged cake mix.
Insert the metal blade and add
the cake mix to the work bowl.
While the machine is running,
add the eggs and liquid through
the small feed tube and process
for 5 seconds. Scrape down the
side of the work bowl and
process again for 1 minute for
maximum volume. Remove the
work bowl from the base but
do not remove the metal blade.
Insert your finger into the
underside of the blade from
the bottom of the work bowl
to hold the blade in place while
emptying the batter.
Tip:
After emptying cake batter or
puréed soup from the work bowl,
replace the bowl on the motor
base. Insert the metal blade and
pulse once. Centrifugal force will
spin the batter off the blade onto
the side of the work bowl.
Remove the blade, and use the
spatula to scrape any remaining
batter from the bowl.

TECHNIQUES FOR KNEADING YEAST
DOUGH WITH THE DOUGH BLADE
12
The Pro Custom 11™ Food
Processor can mix and knead
dough in a fraction of the time it
takes to do it by hand. You will
get perfect results every time if
you follow these directions.
NEVER TRY TO PROCESS
DOUGH THAT IS TOO STIFF
TO KNEAD COMFORTABLY
BY HAND.
There are two general types
of yeast dough.
1. Typical bread dough is made
with a flour mix that contains
at least 50% white flour. It is
uniformly soft, pliable and slightly
sticky when properly kneaded. It
always cleans the inside of the
work bowl completely when
properly kneaded.
With a spoon or fork, stir the flour
in its container. With the dry
measure, scoop up the flour so it
overflows. With a spatula, knife or
chopstick— being careful not to
press down — sweep excess flour
back into the container so the top
of the measure is level.
Machine capacity
Typical bread dough:
5 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups whole-grain flour
Typical sweet dough:
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
If a bread dough recipe calls
for more than the recommended
amount of flour, mix and knead
it in equal batches.
Using the right blade
Use the plastic dough blade
when the recipe calls for more
than 3-1/2 cups of flour. Use the
metal blade when a recipe calls
for less than 3-1/2 cups of flour.
Because the dough blade does
not extend to the outside rim of
the work bowl, it cannot pick up
all the flour when small amounts
are processed.
2. Typical sweet dough contains
a higher proportion of sugar,
butter and/or eggs than typical
bread dough. It is rich and sticky,
and it does not clean the inside of
the work bowl. It requires less
kneading after the ingredients are
mixed. Although 30 seconds is
usually sufficient, 60 to 90
seconds gives better results if
the machine does not slow down.
Except for kneading, described
below, the processing procedures
are the same for both types
of dough.
Whichever blade you use, always
push it down as far as it will go
on the motor shaft.
Measuring the flour
It’s best to weigh it. If you don’t
have a scale, or the recipe doesn’t
specify weight, measure by the
“stir, scoop and sweep” method.
Use a standard, graduated dry
measure, not a cup for liquid
ingredients.
Proofing the yeast
The expiration date is marked on
the packages. To be sure your
yeast is active, dissolve it in a small
amount of warm liquid (about 1/3
cup for one package of dry yeast).
The temperature of liquids used to
dissolve and activate yeast must be
between 105°F and 120°F. Yeast cells
are not activated at temperatures
lower than this, and they die when
exposed to temperatures higher
than 130°F. If the recipe includes a
sweetener like sugar or honey, add
a tablespoon with the yeast. If no
sweetener is called for, add a pinch.
The yeast won’t foam without it.
Let the mixture stand until it foams
—up to 10 minutes.

Processing dry ingredients
Put the flour and other dry
ingredients in the work bowl. If
the recipe calls for herbs, oil or
solid fats like butter, add them
with the flour. Turn the machine
on, and let it run for about
20 seconds.
Adding liquids
All liquid should be added
through the feed tube while the
machine is running. Add liquid
in a slow, steady stream, only
as fast as dry ingredients absorb
it. If liquid sloshes or splatters,
stop adding it but do not turn
off machine. Wait until
ingredients in bowl have mixed,
then add remaining liquid slowly.
Pour liquid onto dough as it
passes under feed tube opening.
Do not pour liquid directly onto
bottom of bowl.
Follow the recipe carefully. It is
important to add enough liquid to
make the dough soft enough to
knead. Kneading dough that is
too stiff can strain the machine.
All liquid except that used to
activate yeast should be cold, to
minimize the possibility of overheating the dough. You must
never knead a yeast dough to a
temperature higher than 100°F.
Doing so will slow or even
prevent the action of the yeast.
Kneading bread dough
Do not try to use the machine to
knead dough that is too stiff to
knead comfortably by hand.
Doing so can strain the machine.
Kneading typical bread dough
After the dough starts to clean
the inside of the work bowl
completely and forms a ball,
process it for 60 seconds to
knead it. Stop the machine and
test the dough to be sure it’s
properly kneaded. Typical bread
dough should have a soft, pliable
texture and it should feel slightly
sticky. Stretch the dough with
your hands to test it. If it feels
hard, lumpy or uneven, continue
processing until it feels uniformly
soft and pliable. Make sure that
the blade is firmly pressed back
into place after removing the
dough to test it.
Kneading typical sweet dough
Process dough for at least 30
seconds after all the ingredients
are incorporated. It will not clean
the inside of the work bowl. If
necessary, scrape the bowl and
process for 5 more seconds.
Adding other ingredients
Cheese, nuts and raisins may be
added with the dry ingredients or
during the final kneading. To leave
them almost whole, add them
through the feed tube 5 seconds
before you stop kneading. For a
finer texture, add them with the
dry ingredients.
Rising
Put the dough in a large, lightly
floured plastic food storage bag.
Squeeze out all the air and close
the bag, allowing space for the
dough to rise. Or put the ball of
dough in a large bowl coated with
soft butter or vegetable oil. Roll
the dough around to coat its
entire surface. Cover it with a
damp towel or a piece of oiled
plastic wrap.
Let it rise in a warm, draft-free
place — about 80°F. The rising
time is usually about 1-1/2 hours
but will vary from 45 minutes to
several hours, depending on the
type of flour and the humidity of
the air. To test if the dough has
risen enough, stick your finger in
it. An indentation should remain.
If it doesn’t, let the dough rise
more and test again. When it has
risen enough, punch the dough
down. It is now ready to shape.
Shaping, finishing and baking
If you shape the dough in loaf
pans, coat them with vegetable
oil cooking spray and fill them
only half full. Let rise until dough
is just slightly above the top of
the pan. If shaping free-form
loaves, let them rise on an oiled
baking sheet until at least doubled
in bulk.
Making consecutive batches
You can make several batches of
bread dough in a row.
The motor in the Pro Custom
11™ Food Processor is extremely
efficient. Follow the recipe for
White Bread, pg. 41.

Motor stops
• If using large feed tube cover,
the pusher assembly may have
come unlocked. Push down
pusher sleeve to lock it into place
and continue processing.
• Cover may have come unlocked.
Lock cover and continue processing.
• Power cord may be unplugged.
• Excessive strain may have
caused motor to overheat and
stop. Wait for the motor to cool,
5-10 minutes. A safety protector
in the motor protects it against
excessive overheating. If the
motor stops, turn the machine
off. After 5-10 minutes, divide
dough into 2 batches and
complete processing. Pinch
dough to make sure it is not
too stiff to knead comfortably
by hand. If it is, add liquid 1 teaspoon at a time - until dough
is sufficiently moist to clean bowl.
Dough doesn’t rise
We recommend that you always
test activity of yeast before using
it. See instructions for proofing
yeast on page 12. Do not use
dry yeast after expiration date
on package.
Avoid killing yeast cells by
dissolving yeast in water that is
too warm. Dissolve yeast in about
1/3 cup of warm liquid at 105°120°F. All other liquid should
be cold.
Don’t knead so long that dough
becomes overheated. The ideal
temperature for kneaded dough
is 80°F; it should never
exceed 110°F .
Let dough rise in draft-free
environment of about 80°-90°F.
Dough containing whole grain
flour will take longer to rise than
dough made of white flour only.
Baked bread too heavy
Next time, feel dough to be sure
it is uniformly soft, pliable and
slightly sticky before setting it
aside to rise. Let dough fully
double in bulk in bowl or bag,
punch it down, then let it double
again after it is shaped.
PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
WITH TYPICAL SWEET DOUGHS
Motor slows down
• Amount of dough may exceed
maximum capacity of your food
processor. Remove half and
process in 2 batches.
• Don’t process too long after
all the ingredients have been
incorporated. These rich doughs
will give you good results after
only 30 seconds of kneading.

PREPARING FOOD FOR
SLICING AND SHREDDING
16
Round fruits and vegetables
Before processing onions,
apples and other large, round
fruits and vegetables, trim them
with a knife. Cut the bottom
ends flat, to make the food lie
stable on the disc.
Place the food in the feed tube,
flat side down. Position it as far
left as possible, to prevent it from
tilting when being processed.
Choose fruits that are firm and
not too ripe. Always remove large
hard pits and seeds from fruits
before processing. Seeds from
citrus fruits need not be removed.
You may remove the rind before
slicing or shredding, or leave the
rind on.
Whole peppers are an exception
Remove the stem and cut the
stem end flat. Remove the core
and scoop out the seeds. Leave
the end opposite the stem whole,
to keep the structure stiff. This
ensures round, even slices.
Large fruits like pineapple and
cantaloupe
Cut them in half and remove the
seeds or core. If necessary, cut
the halves into smaller pieces to
fit the feed tube. Remember to
cut the ends flat.
Cabbage and iceberg lettuce
Turn the head on its side and
slice off the top and bottom,
leaving a center section about
3 inches deep. Remove the core
and cut the center section into
wedges to fit the feed tube.
Remove the core from the
bottom piece and cut it and

the top piece into wedges to fit
the feed tube. The 2mm Slicing
Disc or the optional 1mm Slicing
Disc is excellent for slicing
cabbage for coleslaw.
If the fruit or vegetable
doesn’t fit
Try inserting it from the bottom
of the feed tube. The opening
there is slightly larger. Do not
force any food into the feed tube.
Pack the feed tube for
desired results
For long slices or shreds, cut the
food into feed tube widths and
pack the pieces horizontally.
For small, round slices or short
shreds from carrots, zucchini and
other long vegetables, cut them
into feed tube heights and pack
them tightly upright.
Food should fit snugly, but not so
tight that it prevents the pusher
from moving.
When slicing or shredding food,
always use the pusher. Never put
your fingers or a spatula into the
feed tube.
Never push down hard on the
pusher. Use light pressure for soft
fruits and vegetables like bananas,
mushrooms, strawberries and
tomatoes, and for all cheeses.
Use medium pressure for most
food - apples, celery, citrus fruit,
potatoes and zucchini. Use firm
pressure for really hard vegetables
like carrots and yams.

For large berries, radishes and
mushrooms, trim the ends flat
with a knife. Insert the food
through the feed tube, standing
each piece on a flat end. You can
fill the tube to about 1-inch from
the top. The bottom layer gives
you perfect slices for garnish.

If you want all the slices to be
perfect, it’s best to process one
layer at a time.
Long fruits and vegetables
Trim foods like bananas, celery
and zucchini by cutting them into
pieces a little shorter than the
feed tube. Cut both ends flat.
(Use a ruler as a guide, or the
pusher assembly with the pusher
pulled out as far as it will go.)
Fill the feed tube with the pieces,
standing them vertically and
adding enough pieces so they
are solidly packed and cannot
tilt sideways as they are sliced
or shredded.
Small amounts of food
Use the small feed tube and the
small pusher. Remove the small
pusher from the pusher assembly.
Slide the pusher assembly over
the feed tube and press the
sleeve down to lock it into place.
Be sure the slide lock on the

French-cut green beans
Trim fresh green beans to feedtube widths. Blanch them for 60
seconds in boiling salted water.
Plunge them immediately into
cold water to stop the cooking.
When they are cold to the touch,
drain and dry them. Stack them
in the feed tube horizontally to
about 1 inch from the top. Use
the standard 4mm Slicing Disc.
Be sure the small pusher is
locked and the slide lock in the
sleeve is unlocked. Apply light
pressure to the pusher and press
the lever down to PULSE until
beans are sliced. To make long,
horizontal slices or shreds of raw
zucchini or carrots, use the same
procedure.
Matchsticks or Julienne strips
Process the food twice to “doubleslice” it. Insert any large fruit or
vegetable — potatoes, turnips,
zucchini, apples — in the feed
tube horizontally. Apply pressure
to the pusher while pressing the
lever down to PULSE until the
food is sliced. You will get long
slices. Remove the slices from
the work bowl and reassemble
them as shown. Reinsert them
in the feed tube, wedging them
in tightly. Slice them again. You
will obtain long julienne strips.
With the optional Square Julienne
Disc, you can make square
julienne strips in one operation.

Cooked meat and poultry
The food must be very cold. If
possible, use a chunk of food just
large enough to fit the feed tube.
To make julienne strips of ham,
bologna or luncheon meat, stack
slices of them. Then roll or fold
them double and stand them
upright in the feed tube, wedging
in as many rolls as possible. This
technique works better with
square or rectangular pieces than
with round ones.
Uncooked meat and poultry
Cut the food into pieces to fit the
feed tube. Boned, skinned chicken
breasts will usually fit when cut in
half crosswise. Wrap the pieces in
plastic wrap and put them in the
freezer. They are ready to slice
when they pass this “knife test.”
They are easily pierced with the
tip of a sharp knife although semifrozen and hard to the touch.
Stand them in the feed tube, cut
side down, and slice them against
the grain, using firm pressure on
the pusher. Or lay them flat in the
feed tube, as many as will fit, and
slice with the grain, using firm
pressure.
Frankfurters, salami and other
sausages
If the sausage is soft, freeze it
until it is hard to the touch but
easily pierced with the tip of a
sharp knife. Hard sausages need
not be frozen. If the sausage is
thin enough to fit in the small
feed tube, use that tube.
Otherwise, cut the sausage into
pieces to fit the large feed tube
completely. Stand the pieces
vertically, packing them in tightly
so they cannot tilt sideways.

IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM
Most problems with the food
processor are easily solved.
Provided are some possible
problems and their solutions.
Food is unevenly chopped
Do not process too much food
at one time. Food should be in
uniform pieces. Pulse several
times and then run continuously.
Liquid leaks from bottom of
bowl onto motor base
Remove bowl from base as soon
as you finish processing. Do not
remove metal blade first. When
bowl and blade are removed
together, blade drops down and
forms an almost perfect seal
against the bowl.
Liquid leaks out between bowl
and cover when machine
is running
You added too much liquid. Never
use more than 2-3/4 cups thin or
5 cups thick liquid.The thicker the
liquid, the more you can use.
Examples of thick liquids include:
pancake or cake batter.
Slices are uneven or slanted
Pack feed tube more carefully, as
described on pages 16 and 17.
Maintain even pressure on pusher.
Carrot, or similar food falls over
in feed tube
Cut food into enough short pieces
of equal height to fill feed tube.
To slice one or two pieces, use
small feed tube. Cut carrots in
half and insert one piece point
down and the other stem down.
Sliced or shredded food piles up
on one side of work bowl
This is normal. Remove disc
occasionally and even out food.
When food gets close to bottom
of disc, empty work bowl.
A few pieces of food remain on
top of slicing or shredding disc
This is normal. In most cases,
you can shred more of the food
by moving the large pusher up
and down, allowing the piece to
be shredded, or by repositioning
the piece in the feed tube and
reshredding it.
Soft cheese like Mozzarella
spreads out and collects on top
of shredding disc
The cheese was not cold enough,
or the pressure on the pusher
was too hard. To shred soft
cheese, do not push–rather let
the cheese go through by itself.
Tap on the pusher to guide
cheese through.
CLEANING AND STORING
Keep your food processor ready
to use on the kitchen counter.
When not in use, leave
unplugged. Don’t leave the
pusher assembly in locked
position; this could damage
the on-off mechanism.
Store the blades and discs as you
would sharp knives — out of the
reach of children. The Disc
and Blade Holders (optional
accessories) offer safe and
convenient storage.
All parts except the motor base
are dishwasher safe, and we
recommend washing them in the
dishwasher on the top rack. Due
to intense water heat, washing
the work bowl and work bowl
cover on the bottom rack may
cause damage over time. Insert
the work bowl upside down.
Remember where you place
sharp blades and discs, and be
certain to unload the
dishwasher carefully.
To simplify cleaning, rinse
the work bowl, cover, pusher
assembly and blade or disc
immediately after use. Openings
at the bottom of the large pusher
provide drainage and make
cleaning easy. If food lodges in
the pusher, remove it by running
water through pusher or using a
bottle brush.
If you wash blades and discs by
hand, do it carefully. Avoid leaving them in soapy water where
they may disappear from sight.
To clean the metal blade, fill the
work bowl with soapy water, hold
the blade by its plastic center and
move rapidly up and down on the
center shaft of the bowl. Use of
a spray hose is also effective.
If necessary, use a brush.
The work bowl is made of Lexan®
plastic, which is shatter-resistant
and heat-resistant. It should not
be placed in a microwave oven,
as the tube at the back of the
bowl houses the metal rod that
activates the motor.

Chopping certain foods may
scratch or cloud the work bowl.
Among them are ice, whole
spices and oils, like wintergreen.
If you like to prepare your own
spice blends, you may want to
keep a second bowl just for that
purpose.
The base housing is made of a
durable, high impact resistant
plastic. Its smooth surface will
look new for years. Keep a
sponge handy as you work to
wipe spills from the base.
Four rubber feet under the base
help keep it stable on most work
surfaces even when processing
heavy loads. If the feet leave
spots on the counter, spray them
with a spot remover like
Fantastik® or K2-R® and wipe with
a damp sponge. If any trace of
the spot remains, repeat the procedure and wipe the area with a
damp sponge and nonabrasive
cleaning powder.
To clean the inside of the
detachable stem, slide the stem
release button up as far as it will
go and hold as you run water
through the stem.
IMPORTANT: Never store any
blade or disc on the motor shaft.
No blade or disc should be placed
on the shaft except when the
processor is about to be used.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Like all powerful electrical
appliances, a Food Processor
should be handled with care.
Follow these guidelines to protect
you and your family from misuse
that could cause injury.
Handle metal blade and discs
carefully. Their cutting edges are
very sharp.
Always place discs on flat,
stable surface before connecting
detachable stem.
Never put blade or disc on
motor shaft until work bowl is
locked in place.
Always be sure that the
blade or disc is down on motor
shaft as far as it will go.
Always insert metal blade
in work bowl before putting
ingredients in bowl.
When slicing or shredding
food, always use pusher. Never
put your fingers or spatula into
feed tube.
Always wait for blade or
disc to stop spinning before you
remove pusher assembly or cover
from work bowl.
Always remove work bowl
from base of machine before you
remove metal blade or dough
blade.
Be careful to prevent metal
blade from falling out of work
bowl when emptying bowl.
Remove blade before tilting bowl,
or hold it in place with your finger,
a spatula or spoon.
Never use pusher assembly
if sleeve becomes detached
from pusher. Call Cuisinart
Customer Service immediately
at 1-800-726-0190.
SOME TECHNICAL DATA
The motor in your food
processor operates on standard
line operating current. The
appropriate voltage and frequency
for your machine are shown on a
label under the base.
An automatic, temperaturecontrolled circuit breaker in
the motor ensures complete
protection against motor burnout.
If the processor runs for an
exceptionally long time when
chopping, mixing or kneading
a thick or heavy mixture in
successive batches, the motor
may overheat. If this happens,
the processor will stop. Turn it
off and wait for the motor to cool
off before proceeding. It will
usually cool off within 10 minutes.
In extreme cases, it could take

Have a shallow pan of ice water ready. In a small
skillet, use a whisk to stir together the egg yolks,
vinegar or lemon juice, sugar, dry mustard, salt, and
pepper until completely blended. Cook over very
low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture bubbles in 1 or 2 places – do not allow eggs to scramble. Remove from the heat and place in the ice
water bath, stir to cool down.
Insert the metal blade. Place the egg mixture in the
work bowl. Cover and insert the pusher. Turn the
machine on and add half the oil to the pusher, the oil
will run through the pusher very slowly into the
work bowl to create the emulsion. When it has
totally run through, add the remaining oil to the
pusher, as the emulsion is made, the sound of the
machine will become deeper. Transfer mayonnaise
to a container, cover and chill until ready to use.
Will keep for 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator.
Herb Mayonnaise: Add 1/4 cup tightly packed fresh
green herbs when you put in the egg.
Recommended herbs are parsley, dill and tarragon,
with stems removed.
Tarter Sauce: Triple the amount of lemon juice.
When mayonnaise is finished, add these ingredients:
3 small gherkins, 1/4 small onion, 1 tablespoon
capers, 1 tablespoon bottled horseradish and 3
drops Tabasco sauce. Process until gherkins and
onion are chopped fine, about 10 seconds

bottom and sides with fork and refrigerate crust for
30 minutes, or until firm.
Preheat oven to 400°F. 15 minutes before baking.
Line pie shell with parchment paper and fill it with
uncooked beans or rice. Bake for 12 minutes.
Remove paper, beans or rice. Prick shell again
and bake it 6 minutes longer, or until it is lightly
browned. Remove shell from pan and let cool on
wire rack.
