Summary: Well, what can one say about a Cuisinart ?!? As good as they come, I'd say. I had bought this one for my daughter, as I don't believe in NOT owning a Food Processor. She's gone on to the latest model from Cuisinart by now, but this one served her well. The blade stayed sharp, the disks are super helpful for shredding and slicing, the bowl is large and easy to empty with a spatula. Sarah Moulton from FoodTv is using hers constantly ! And so do thousands of other cooks.
