Summary: This product broke the first time I used it. I makes a lot of noise but does not work a all. Its very simple to use, but the clutch or plastic parts inside failed immediately. You can tell by the assembly that is as cheaply built as they could get away with. This is not a fine addition to my kitchen, but more like a cheap knock off. This is not the old Cuisinart I am used to.
Summary: I am just stunned with all these negative reviews - I have had mine for four years - got one for others as Christmas gifts also - we ALL LOVE IT - couldn't cook a meal without it. Yes you need to use a spatula to remove the cheese - what horrros - I mean seriously - has everyone gone nuts - it is a machine making a cooking easier BUT YOU DO HAVE TO DO SOMETHING AND OF COURSE CLEAN IT.
Summary: Love this machine! I've had one for many years and use it constantly to shred cheese. I was sick when the motor finally gave out. I purchased a used one and it works fabulously! I wish they would come out with a current model!
Summary: An excellent grater, with three grater cylinders of different sizes. This grater is convenient, very efficient, more effective than either of our food processors (including DLC-X, now about 25 yrs old). Unfortunately, the device is no longer made or supported, but used items in good shape are likely to be available. Our recent purchase was an example, and we are very pleased.
Point and shoot food processor is the easiest ever.

Summary: I love this processor. It is the quickest I have ever used to prepare ground nuts for some of our traditional holiday treats. I bought it because I had used one at my son's house and it was great. It also cleans and stores nicely. I also liked the price.
Summary: My wife used a Moulinex (no longer in Business) food processor for years and was extremely pleased with it. The opening was narrower than the Cuisinart Prep Express and it rotated slower. The cutting drum/ body clearance was tighter and the design did not allow food to get past the rear of the cutting/grinding drum as happens with the Cuisinart. The Cuisinart spins so fast that food flies all over.
Summary: I purchased this item locally (in Jamaica) for my staff to reduce Preparation time for salads. The product is such a hit with them that there is competition to use it. I am disappointed that it does not seem to do onions, lettuce and cucumbers without turning them to mush, also the chute could be bigger.
Summary: Just bought mine a week ago at a local discount store. Was easy to assemble & use without having to refer to instructions. Cleanup was simple; all parts (except motor unit), rinse off quickly or can go in the dishwasher. Although I did have to partially coax the cord back in manually, the retractable cord (a generous 5'2" long) conveniently pulls out to the length you need. I successfully sliced sweet potatoes, raw beets, apples, cabbage.
