Making the cut.

Just when we thought a food processor couldn’t be any more game-changing, this dynamo came and surprised us with its many, many talents. It’s a modern, spiffed-up take on the original that launched back in 1973 (which, fun fact, was the first-ever tool of its kind, beloved by the likes of Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, and James Beard). We even put it to the test against the trickiest tasks—think: working dough and shredding mozzarella—and yep, it passed with flying colors. It’s got a whole slew of perks:

  • Ready for any-size batch: The 13-cup processor comes with interchangeable 4- and 13-cup containers, while the 8-cup comes with a very-versatile 8-cup container—so you can prep salsa for two or a party-size batch of coleslaw.
  • Slices and dices—and then some: There’s two adjustable discs for slicing and shredding (thin or thick, fine or coarse...you decide). The 13-cup processor even comes with a bonus disc for dicing.
  • Mixes, purées & kneads, too: Each container has its own chopping blade, too, for batters, soups, bread, you name it. (The 13-cup container comes with an extra blade especially for your dough.)
  • (Almost) endless possibilities: From prepping pesto and soup, to shredding veggies and grinding meat, this processor takes (and literally makes) the cake.
  • Made in: China
  • Product Warranty: 8-cup: Limited 2-year manufacturer's warranty. 13 cup: Limited 3-year manufacturer's warranty.
  • Shipping & Returns: Free Standard Shipping on Orders $199+ and Easy-Breezy Returns

Bet you haven’t heard this story: After Cuisinart founder Carl Sontheimer discovered the commercial food processor at a French trade show in the early 1960s, he went right to work on creating a version just for home cooks. Fast forward to 1973, and America’s first-ever home-friendly food processor was born. It quickly gained favor among the likes of James Beard, Jacques Pépin, and Julia Child—yep, *that* Julia Child. And now? Cuisinart’s still making a whole lineup of time-savers we thank our lucky stars for.
