Summary: I should have believed the negative reviews of this machine. VERY disappointed with this and am returning it after one use. IMO This DLC8S is a classic example of what happens when legal departments decide to "over safety" a product without regard to how end users actually use it.
Excerpt: My old food processor recently kicked the bucket, and after finding a good deal on the Cuisinart Pro Custom 11-Cup Food Processor online, I decided to splurge a little. Man, am I glad I did!!!
Summary: I've been using this item a couple of times a week for about a year. I had been quite happy with the product. However, two months ago the little plastic tab that holds the bowl down on the base broke so I had to apply pressure to the top of the bowl to keep the safety switch engaged.
Excerpt: Love, Love Love it! It came with 3 blade plates, two of them that slice (different thickness) and one blade plate that grates along with the regular chopping blade. It also came with a "dough blade" and a dough lid - to be used for kneeding and whatnot for various baking preparation applications.
Excerpt: This is a great food processor. I have owned it several years and have never had a problem with it. It is not a kitchen tool that I use all the time, I prefer hand tools usually (ex: hand grating, using a pastry cutter to combine...) but when I have needed it, this one cannot be beat.
Excerpt: This is the machine I think of for 90% of kitchen appliance tasks. I have worked it into recipes and I have multiple attachments for it including additional cutting plates, meat grinder, cheese grater etc. And it's been working for me for a decade. My parents' unit is probably 30 years old
Excerpt: I love this food processor. I got it for Christmas last year and I use it on occasion, it makes cooking really easy.PowerIt can purée food within seconds. It does not take forever to purée. It's great if you want to whip up some baby food, or guacamole.
Excerpt: I received this as a gift a few months ago and I absolutely love it. It is so handy in chopping, grating, and mincing anything. I've used it to cook for the holidays and it worked perfectly. I like it best for chopping onions, and other vegetables however it was very simple to knead dough with also.
