Help, baking with a messy food processor in Kitchen Consumer Posted July 20, 2014 I often use my processorto make bread, pasta, etc. About 5 years ago I replaced my 60"s Cuisinart with a new one because the old one "puffed" flour all over the counter. The new one: a Cuisinart Power Prep Plus with a dedicated bread button, which lead me to believe it was designed with bread/pasta making in mind. To my GREAT annoyance, the new one is at least as bad, maytbe worse, than the old one in flouring my counter. I've taken to stuffing the cavities in that funel that sits on top with cloths to minimize the mess. So dedicated bakers, is there a processor out there that will not puff out flour when used for baking? Yes, I know I could knead these things by hand. But my aching back, shoulders, hands... has led to shortcuts in baking rather than no baking at all.
