We have two All-Clad nonstick fry pans - 8" and 12" They are used daily and have held up for several years of cooking for a family of boys. We do not expect them to last forever, but we will have gotten every cent out of them and more. It is absolutely essential that you use the correct cooking utensils and cleaning devices.

Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor DLC-2A : The new work bowl is 14% larger, but the Mini-Prep Plus is still perfect for smaller chopping and grinding jobs (a few garlic cloves or cinnamon sticks). It boasts all the quality and features of a full-size processor, including Cuisinart's exclusive auto-reversing SmartPower blade, easy-to-use touchpad controls that wipe clean, and the clear bowl that now holds almost 24 ounces. Removable parts are dishwasher safe. Small enough to leave on the counter, easy to store. Comes with a spatula, instruction book and 9 recipes. Imported. 18 month limited warranty. 3 cup capacity. 6" x 7" x 9". Model: DLC-2A. Product Features The simple chop/grind touchpad control and auto-reversing SmartPower Blade offers powerful processing options at the touch of a button - a Cuisinart exclusive 3-cup work bowl is easy to clean Touchpad controls make cleanup a snap The "grind" control processes hard foods like nuts, seeds and spices The "chop" control chops or minces soft foods like onions, garlic and herbs Hidden cord storage feature keeps countertop neat Cleaning Instructions Rinse the work bowl, cover and blade immediately after each use. The work bowl, cover, spatula and blade are dishwasher safe. They may also be washed by hand in warm soapy water. Wipe the motor base clean with a clean damp cloth or sponge and dry.

Every Kitchen needs a mini-prep

This little item is an essential for every kitchen. You do not need to be a cook to appreciate it. We make salsas, sauces, dips, dressings, marinades and just chop vegetables. Unlike the full-size Cuisinart processor and all of itsblades, this item can stay out on the counter - even in a small kitchen. Power is plenty sufficient to do what we have asked of it. A quick rinse is all that is needed it using for multiple items or dishes for a meal. We worry about any plastic bowls cracking (as our full-sized one has), but this has held together for many more uses.

High quality and easy to use. We received this as a gift and is one of our favorite kitchen items. It is large enough to cook for a family and still have leftovers! Months may pass before I use it again (wife usually fights for the privileges to use it), but it so easy to use I do not need to get out any directions. A must-have during the winter, but also very useful in the summer for those large gatherings of family and friends.
