Summary: I bought this food processor almost a year ago. I can't even believe how much I love this thing. I don't have the skill or passion for cooking. I hate cutting veggies so much. Or anything, really. Yet my family insists on eating daily! I'm more of a baker, but I really shouldn't mix dough by hand anymore because it causes days of pain afterwards (like that lady in the infomercial who can't squeeze a squirt bottle? yeah, I wish I didn't understand her plight).
This replaced my very expensive Kitchen Aid food processor

Summary: Hate to say this but Cuisinart does a better job with food processors. In my life I've spent hundreds of dollars on Kitchen Aid products and went through 3 food processors. I had Cuisinart when I was a kid and decided to replace my Kitchen Aid with one and have had it for almost a year with no problems. It is excellent for heavy chopping and doesn't have a lot of speeds to choose from. Just two and that works for me. I like the attachments but rarely use them.
Summary: I have a lot of Cuisinart items. I have the small Cuisinart chopper that I adore and bought this online for the price and the capacity. I don't know who designed this, but I don't think they have ever done much actual work in a kitchen. It is incredibly heavy! I had a 10 cup processor that weighed half of this. There are multiple parts that are hard to clean.
Summary: Bought this about 6 weeks ago and have used it about 20 times! This is the first food processor I have ever owned, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but what a time saver! I have used all of the included blades (chopper, shredder, slicer, and the dough mixer). This product is easy to use and seems sturdy. It is also much quieter than I expected.
Summary: The title says it all. We love the food processor except that the lid is flimsy and broke in no time. Replacement lids are over $30, so buyer beware. The lid broke because of a weakness in the design and not abuse. We still use it with the broken lid. Now we have to hold the top down to use the machine. Kind of dangerous but until we can fork over another $30+ dollars to replace the cheap lid it will have to do.
Summary: I've had this machine for well over a year. I wasn't sure that I'd use it very much, but I was wrong! We use it all the time, every week. We make our own dog food and it chops all the veggies so quickly. I've used it to make rolls, bread, salads, tortillas, pretty much anything you could think of. I love it so much. The wide feeding tube is great. I did buy a larger slicing blade, just to increase the usability for us. It cleans up like a breeze!
I love it, but I wish the handles were built better

Summary: I love this machine. LOVE. It has been fabulous, and I've used nearly every day since buying it two months ago. The only thing that bugs me is that I worry sometimes that I am going to crack the handles when I am removing the lid, or taking it off the machine. I wish they were better built in that area. The seam right down the middle doesn't feel like it's going to hold up.
Summary: I really enjoy using this product. Even lengthy blending cycles don't tax the motor at all! I grated a sweet potato in a few seconds! I usually use it to make butternut squash soup, which it purees quietly with no problems. Actually, that's one thing I love about this food processor. I expected it to be noisy--it's not! The instruction video was particularly helpful and the unit is easy to clean. Highly recommend, especially for the price.
Summary: I've used Cuisinart food processors for years, and love them! I don't use these much, however, when I do, it has to work well, and provide some good features. This food processor offers great size (doesn't eat up too much counter space), operates quietly and offers great functionality (on, off, pulse power buttons) and nifty accessory blades. My personal favorite is the grater disk attachment. I always seem to get a kick out of shredding cheese in seconds.
Summary: I went back and forth between this and the original version that does not have buttons but the paddle instead, and also this vs a 9-cup version. I chose this when the price went down on Amazon, and I'm not disappointed. The size is good for meals for upto 4, I think, and it's great for making baby food. For those who care, the whole setup is BPA free (as in whatever is exposed to food) so you can cook baby food and throw it in and puree it ...
