Excerpt: I got this as a gift about 5 years ago, and Iove it. It is a vey powerful and effective machine. The only issue I really have with it is cleaning the blades. I highly suggest that put the blades in the dishwasher instead of hand washing them. They are very hard to clean after you use them, especially when you are grating cheese in the machine. Other than that, the machine works great, even after 5 years of use out of it.
Excerpt: Let me just start off with, I absolutely adore my Cuisinart 14-cup food processor. I love how versatile it is. I can make hummus, dips, even homemade peanut butter! I use this machine almost every day to create something new for my family to enjoy. I recommend this for anyone who is in search of a reliable food processor that will do the job right every single time.
Summary: We bought this machine about a year ago. Right away, one of the tabs on the lid broke. It still worked, so we continued to use it. A few months later, the other tab worked, and the bowl broke as well. With pieces of plastic all over our kitchen, we threw both pieces away. When we called customer service, we were told it was still under warranty and cheerfully began the process for replacement. Then they told us we needed to send back the broken pieces.
Excerpt: Whenever I can, I try to cook healthy, and it seems that every type of healthy recipe requires you to use a food processor. Over the years, I have used a few different food processors, and one that I really liked was the Cuisinart Custom Fourteen Cup Food Processor. This does a great job of cutting up pretty much any food I have put in it. The blades are really sharp, so they pretty much cut through anything.
Summary: There is a reason why America's Test Kitchen rated this the number 1 food procesor....because it is great! If you take notice...this processor is used by many many cooking shows as well (The Chew, ATK, Cooks Country....etc etc ) Reasonable price. Easy to clean. Keep it on your counter and ready to go!
Excerpt: I have been so pleased with this purchase! Granted, it's a good chunk of change, so I did my research before I bought anything. It is remarkably quiet, which is a huge plus since I have little children. It's also very fast, cutting an onion in a couple of seconds. I have yet to use the grater for cheese (I've only used it for zucchini), but I'm excited to try it.
Summary: This is my third Cuisinart food processor. Each one has been larger than the last, and they all still work!! This one is a power-house. I do all my bread baking, and at 70 years of age, the kneading has become difficult. The Cuisinart takes care of that, plus the taste of the final product is great and still "home made", no chemicals included. We also do a lot of canning, and so many times the food processor has completed a tiresome project in speed time.
Excerpt: I've had this thing for years and it's still gong strong! So many uses...making pesto, grating cheese, crushing nuts, chopping vegetables. This little wonder does it all. One of my favorite things about this food processors is that all of the parts are dishwasher safe. When your lazy like me, every little thing helps! :) I'm also a gardener and when I get a zucchini the size of a baseball bat, this food processor grates that zucchini like no one's business.
