Have had 2 food processors over 38 years, first a Cuisinart and then the other brand. When that one went after 18 years I bought another one, it matched by stand mixer. What a mistake! A piece of junk. After 3 months I returned it and replaced it with this one. This is a workhorse. Heavy duty motor, has weight, not flimsy, much more power. Some things on both of them were different than old ones, looks like safety features such as the fill line for the big push tube and the gaskets on the lids. A little more difficult to use because of those new features, but this one is great. Chops things up somehow so you don't need to open and scrape down as often. Blades lock in so you can pour materials out without removing blade first. Grates softer cheese like mozzarella a thousand times better than the competition. Lid comes off, goes on easier than other one. Much easier. Bowl fits onto machine easily. Buttons are easy to push and respond instantly. No strange nooks and crannies under lid and feed tube to make it hard to clean. Ended up buying the case for the blades separately - do wish they came with. Not sure what they think you're going to do with all those sharp things!

Very solid processor. Heavy base (motor) so it does not move much. All the components fit very tightly (especially the spindle extension). The rubber gasket in the cover seals pretty well, though needs to be removed from time to time for a thorough washing (depending on type of food being prepared). Overall, highly recommended.

I love this new version. Larger and easier to use than the older one at my summer home. I've always been a fan of all Cuisinart products. I own several!

I love this processor
Customer review from logo
I've used this quite a bit mixing heavy batters, chopping nuts and slicing. It is different from my old DC L10 in that it has more places for food to get trapped in cleaning however, I am so pleased with it's capabilities and the fact that the blade doesn't fall out and leak.

Great kitchen tool
Customer review from logo
I am a Vegan, so I chop, mince, and shred a great many different types of vegetables for my meals. With 2 different size bowls, I can match the right sized bowl with the cutting job I have to do.

Good precision with sharp blades!
Customer review from logo
I’ve replaced my old broken food processor with this Cuisinart model. I love it! The large size is perfect for most jobs, and the small bowl sorts out small mincing chopping things like garlic or nuts in a flash. This is easy to use and clean. I wish it came with a storage container for the blades etc.

Cuisinart Elite Review
Customer review from logo
Purchased 1 month ago. Replaced a Cuisinart Food processor in which the platics in the bowls broke. Motor was stll good. But to replace the bowls was half the price of a new Cuisinart Food Processor. I am sure that was design by Cuisinart.

First time use was easy.
Customer review from logo
This is the first time I have used a food processor and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked for chopping a bowl full of vegetables. The unit was fairly quiet; I'm used to a blender that is much louder. I can't wait to use it again. I also like this model because it has a 4 cup bowl besides the 12 cup bowl.
