Conclusion: What I love about my food processor is that it is easy to use. It does exactly what it says it will. It is also easy to clean. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a new processor.
Summary: My husband and I started eating Paleo about 2 months ago and previously I used a blender to puree vegetables and make sauces. It was such a difficult process constantly emptying the blender and scooping everything out. With this food processor, the process is a breeze! It grinds up nuts to a flour w/ ease and it is surprisingly quiet for the work it does. I've only used the blade so far but I love this kitchen gadget.
Summary: I've only had my Cuisinart two weeks, but have found it to be super helpful in speeding up prep time. I've made pie crust, hashbrowns, shredded cheese, chopped nuts, and more. This food processor lets me tackle time consuming recipes in very little time. I've also been pleasantly suprised at how quiet the motor is. Only shortcoming is that the lid doesn't form an airtight seal. Sometimes flour or finely chopped nuts sneak out when I'm pulsing.
Summary: Bought this product for my mom for Mother's day. She is an avid cook and wanted to replace her current Cuisinart Mini-Chop. Found a good deal on eBay versus regular retail stores. Overall - Good quality. Reputable brand. Great gift for Mother's day!!!
