Question about Cuisinart DLC-5 Food Processor

1 Answer

Cuisinart overheated while trying to make almond butter

The manual said it would take a few minutes to make nut butter. After about 7 minutes, I only had ground almonds, no almond butter. And the machine was WICKED hot.

When I removed the lid, steam came out and there was condensation on the lid. I gave up trying to get it to make the nut butter.

Is there something I should have done differently or is this machine just not strong enough?

If someone can make mayonaise and know how they can make plaster the way to start the proces , then they know nothing about to make beem breezes or almond butter the engine of this kind of tools are not made for the heavy work a a little but good suggestion is like a Hobart dough mixer thats not a food processor like that DLC-5 because is made for shakes and normal fruits and vegetables or some kind of meat no problem But not for heavy emulsification operations if start to make butter from cream then you must beware of the slowly power increase comming force you can hear the difference in sound , the same problem if you have a Kitchen cutter do not cut out full fat young cheese on it at most only for a short time , because the armature and field magnet of the motor become much too hot when cream changed into butter then stop the machine quickly and when there are heavy nuts almonds are coming too its much too much force for it the commercial group Home appliances a little suggestion is cut only the nuts in the dlc-5 and doing make butter and more heavyer jobs with this kind of tools Hobart A200 20 QT 20qt Mixer Bowl 200 20 Mixing Pizza Bakery Dough

SOURCE: instructions for the food processor of my Cuisinart Duet

Place the gearbox on top of the blender/food processor
Place the work bowl over the spindle, with the handle facing the front of the machine - make sure the tabs lock into place.
Place the stem adapter on top of the spindle, then the blade.
Place the lid on top of the bowl, with the feed tube facing the back of the food processor. Then the pusher into the feed tube.

SOURCE: can you slice almonds on the cuisinart dfp 3 if so

It is very difficult, but the machine is capable of it. Use the chopping/mixing blade (S-shaped blade). You would place a small amount - about a small handful - in the workbowl, and pulse the almonds only for about 2 seconds. Even if you want to eventually chop a large quantity, only do about a small handful at a time. It is so difficult, because the almonds will be completely pulverized if you leave it on for even 3-4 seconds. Many people who try chopping almonds, nuts, etc in a food processor discontinue the practice b/c it is so easy to overchop them into dust.

Is the Cuisinart DLC 7 Super Pro Manual available to download?


Manuals can be found here:
Food Processors Product Manuals Cuisinart com

You'll have to look around at the options and pick one that looks like the one you have.

If you have an older one, the handle for the bowl generally goes in front, and check the base to see if the button that gets pushed down when the top is in locked position is in the front or the back... and try to match that. The DLC-10s has it in the front (7 cup machine), but many of the larger machines have it in the back. The feed tube matches up with the button when you put the lid on. If you put the lid on with the feed tube 180 degrees off, you can break the lid/bowl getting them apart again.

Getting this right is the most important thing... otherwise they just kind of work. The link for the 7-cup Pro Classic Food Processor (DLC-10s) has really good technique information with color photos. It's worth grabbing regardless of the machine you have.

Other manuals have other recipes... so you might want to download more than one manual.

Is an instruction manual for Cuisinart DLC-7 Super Pro Food Processor available to download?


You can go to: Food Processors Product Manuals Cuisinart com

Find one that is at least close, if they don't have your exact one. The manuals for each shape-size are pretty much the same... so find the one with the closest picture and size.

The chrome (DFP-7BC) is probably very close... (I'm guessing yours is the same only in white??)

Put in nuts and turned to mush


It is extremely difficult to chop walnuts in a food processor, because they turn to powder within a few seconds. I have chopped them using both a Cuisinart food processor and a Moulinex La Machine. The difficulty arises because even after you have released the on or chop button, the blade continues to spin for a second or two. The Cuisinart DLC-8S is not particularly well-suited for chopping nuts, because the blade is not reversible - there are many Cuisinarts that do have reversible blades - a particularly good one is the Cuisinart DLC-2A, which has both a reversible blade and a Chop function (retails for about $29.99 to 39.99 nowadays).

The only way to have any success whatsoever with the DLC-8S is to press the pulse button and release immediately - only use a small amount of walntus - and then dump the bowl and add a few more at a time.

Need a instruction book or manual for cuisinart 7 cup food proces


All manuals for models made in last few years are on Cuisinart website.

Removing a Cuisinart Food Processor Work Bowl
You have to remove the pusher first by twisting it off. Then press the sides of the pusher sleeve inward and slide the sleeve up and out of place. Then twist off the lid - all twisting on these food processors works either clockwise or counterlcokwise - not both. Then twist the work bowl to the left (clockwise). Voila!
