Summary: If you are cooking or making something that serves more than 2 to 3 people then this is for you. I have been in and out of the cooking industry for 10 - 15 years now and Cuisnart is one of the best you can buy. the best thing is that it is all dishwasher safe and the base is easy to wipe down. I bought it for $160 to my door, no messing with crowds and other goofy people you encounter at stores and malls trying to find the best deal, wasting your gas as you do so.
Summary: I am blown away by the quality of this product! It is definitely restaurant quality, and the ease of use is great. I would highly recommend this to anyone. I have been wanting a food processor for a long time, and have looked them over carefully...this was a bit pricier than most, but it sure is worth it!!!!
Summary: If you love to cook or entertain, and presentation is important to you, this is your machine. For years, I used a cheaper machine and it worked well, but the old saying, "You Get What You Pay For", is true in kitchen gadgets. Well, my old one finally got to be more trouble than help, and I retired it. Shopping for a replacement, I found this machine but thought it just too expensive.
Summary: Great food preparation tool. Anything you need chopped, sliced, etc. will get done by this VERY VERY easily. There are a lot of different parts to this and it takes some getting used to, but when you do, it makes your kitchen work a dream.
