With a 10 year warranty this sleek, silver bodied baby is a hard to beat powerhouse
on January 27, 2010
I found this model at a local warehouse store and bought it after much debate about whether to go for the Cuisinart or the Kitchenaid. I'm glad I went for this model. It costs less than the Kitchenaid and therefore doesn't have as many gadgets with it, but for my needs at the moment 2 slicing/shredding discs and a 2 blades (pureeing/mixing and dough blade) are good enough for me. The quality of the processor is great. Easy to assemble and the work bowl is very easy to clean. The work bowl has been redesigned from earlier models with little oval openings in the handle in case any water gets in while washing, so it will dry out thoroughly.
The safety features are great too. My first couple times using the machine I didn't have the bowl properly attached, so after a few seconds of me thinking I got a lemon because nothing happened when I pushed the ON button, I realized it was the error of my ways for not attaching the work bowl properly on the base.
It has lots of power. I got it for myself at Christmas 2009 and I've made salsas, pestos, dips. It shreds cheese like a dream. I've sliced every kind of vegetable I could think of slicing, and I LOVE this machine. I love cooking and never really minded doing all the prep with chopping veggies but I've had a epiphany with this processor. It's now my superhero in the kitchen.
And the another great bonus is that it comes with a 10 year warranty. Kitchenaid only has a 1 year warranty which also made me very leary about that product. If a company can stand behind the quality of their product why only give it a warranty for 1 year. (Not to diss Kitchenaid, I have a stand mixer from them that I love) but I felt more comfortable buying a processor that came with a 10 year warranty. But remember folks, read the manual before using it. After reading hundreds of reviews on food processors before buying one for myself, I came to the conclusion that alot of low reviews were because of user error.
