The name Cuisinart is synonymous with food processors and this 7-cup unit is the perfect size for daily food prep for an average family of four. This versatile appliance comes with two blades and two discs that perform a variety of kitchen tasks in a short time. The main stainless-steel blade chops or purées raw or cooked fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, and nuts. A switch on the motor base flips up for mincing or puréeing and flips down for the pulse option, which offers better control when chopping food into larger chunks. The included plastic blade kneads up to two pounds of perfectly textured bread, pastry, or pizza dough in less than two minutes. Other attachments include a slicer disc for slicing or julienning luncheon meats, cheeses, and various vegetables, and a shredding disc for vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, or iceberg lettuce. Foods to be sliced or shredded are inserted through an extra-large plastic feed tube above the processor's bowl and helped through with a pusher.
For convenience, the bowl, feed tube, and pusher are all dishwasher-safe, reducing cleanup as well as prep time. The sleek base gives this processor a commercial-kitchen look and its weight and rubber feet make it immovable during use. This Cuisinart food processor comes with a spatula and a colorful instruction and recipe book as well as a full five-year warranty on the motor. --Cristina Vaamonde
