My 35 year old cuisinart is on its last legs. I use it a lot. What would others recommend? Not too fussed about the price as I will have it a long time and use it a lot
I've got an 11 cup Cuisinart which I think is great. Have used the same size in Kitchen Aid which is also good but prefer the Cuisinart
This will probably confuse you, but I love my kitchen aid. http://www.kitchenaid.com/product/KFPW760OB.uts?noFlash=true
Cooks illustrated prefers the Cuisinart.
I have a large one that's a under counter dweller. My workhorse that sits on top of the counter top is a Cuisinart "mini prep'. Which is just the right size for making Hummus, dressings, or sauces like chimichurri or one crust of pizza dough. 1 cup flour..1/3 water. size.
If you can afford it get both. The mini prep is so much more a daily use thing and little container and blade fit easily in the top rack of the dishwasher.
I just replaced my 20 year old cuisinart with the Cuisinart Elite Collection 14-Cup Food Processor. The old cuisinart still works well, but is now used for backup and travel. The Elite is hands down the food processor to buy. I am 100% satified with this product.
