The small Cuisinart FP-12DCN food processor will easily fit in your cabinet. With measurements of 13.2 x 18.8 x 11.5 inches and 19 pounds, it leaves a small footprint. It can easily tuck away in a corner or take up residence on your countertop. If you’ve read any of the other reviews here then you know that I have a preference for smaller appliances, and will typically recommend the smaller appliance when all else is equal.
This food processor is powerful. With 1000 watts, it can easily make quick work of chopping, slicing and mixing jobs. Before we bought our Vitamix 6300 (which replaces about 9 different appliances), we would use our food processor to shred cabbage and make salsa.
The Cuisinart FP-12DCN comes with 5 different blades that can handle a bunch of different jobs. There is an adjustable slicing disc which can slice in thicknesses ranging from 1-6mm, a fine and medium blade, a large and small chopping or mixing blades, and a blade for dough making.

It has a 12-cup capacity which is large enough to handle most jobs that the home chef might embark on. It would definitely be the star player in your holiday meal prep. The 4-cup bowl is perfect for your smaller jobs. Both bowls have a pour spout for added convenience. You won’t have to worry about spilling your food all over the counter.
The touchpad control panel is very simple and easy to use. It has just 3 large buttons: on, off, and pulse. When the power is on you will see the blue LED lights illuminate the buttons.
Another benefit of this food processor is that the work bowl seal is tighter than on prior models. This allows you to keep working with out worrying about whether or not you’re going to make a mess.
Products that have great warranties should always get your attention. While most food processors have a 1-year warranty, the Cuisinart FP-12DCN has a 10-year warranty that covers the motor (the part that will get the most wear). The rest of the machine is covered by a 3-year limited warranty.
