A great blender, a poor food processor
on March 5, 2012
After reading the poor reviews, I realized that other people are doing what I used to do, using a blender as a food processor. My Cuisinart has the processor attachment as well as the blender. Once, I was blending the ingredients for hummus and the motor sounded labored and smoke started coming out of the slots at the bottom rear, with a strong electrical odor. Then, I remembered that I had always used the processor attachment when doing the hummus, and I switched out the hardware and continued on without any more issues. The motor continues on to this day, and I am thankful I didn't do it permanent damage. The design of the processor blades allow much more resistance to turning than does the blender designed blades.
