Adjusting Speeds and Pulse Functions

Adjusting the Speed and Pulse Settings on Your Cuisinart Food Processor

Control your Cuisinart food processor with precision by adjusting the speed and pulse settings.

  • Slow to Fast: Your food processor’s speed settings range from low to high, allowing you to chop, puree or grind ingredients with variable speeds. Start slow for softer fruits or vegetables and increase the speed for harder foods.
  • Pulsing: This feature allows you to stop and start your food processor in small increments. Ideal for chopping nuts or mixing dough, pulsed bursts give you more control over precise outcomes.
  • Steady Pulse: A steady pulse is great for emulsifying liquid ingredients like oils and vinegars while continuously blending ingredients together slowly. This ensures that all ingredients are properly mixed without overdosing them repeatedly.
  • Bursting Pulse: Ideal for grinding hard seeds such as flaxseed or coffee beans evenly into fine pieces, bursting pulse cuts down on uneven grinding phenomena caused by random pulses.

Use these unique features of your Cuisinart food processor to achieve perfect outcomes every time:

Getting The Most Out Of Your Cuisinart Food Processor
