Summary: I have owned this less than a year and use it only for processing vegetables. The blade is disintegrating. A piece of metal is missing and I have no idea where it went. We may have eaten it! The metal is separating at every rivet. I've had Cuisinart food processors for many years.
Summary: DO NOT BUY this item. Very poorly designed. The cover of the cup broke after being used three times. It has now been almost a month that I am waiting for the Cuisinart costumer service to help me replace the part and I bought the product at the end of August.
Summary: This item arrived not working, but I had already gotten rid of the box/packing slip. I emailed sur la table about it and they said I should return the product on my own, which will probably cost $30 or more.
Good product, good customer service, but take note:

Summary: I've only had this food processor for a month, but it's doing a great job. It's incredibly powerful and has enough space to blend a decent amount of vegetables for soup (or whatever else you happen to be pulverizing), but is surprisingly quiet for it's power.
Summary: I got this to replace an old blender I was using to make smoothies and hummus. The motor is is wonderfully strong and as the other reviews stated, it is super easy to use and clean. I considered getting a smaller capacity model and am very happy I got the largest one.
Summary: I purchased this unit last year, and after 8 months of operation the bowl cracked at the bottom lock, deeming it fairly unsafe to utilize. Oddly enough, this is after very little usage. I did what one would expect, call Cuisinart.
In the middle of cooking it is often hard to discern when that perfect alignment occurs

Summary: Poorly designed plastic parts. I had an original Cuisinart that I adored. I had it so long the plastic parts eventually became fatigued, cracked and broke in spots. That processor from 1980 still has more utility than this processor.
Summary: I love this processor. I bought it to replace my old, smaller Cuisinart that died after 25 years of faithful service. This one is bigger, stronger, faster and the components are dishwasher safe. Plus I like the stainless steel base. I'm looking forward to another 25 years!
