I received the Cuisinart Prep 11 Plus food processor for Christmas. After doing a lot of research online, I decided to send it back and buy a Kitchenaid instead. Although I have never dealt with Cuisinart customer service, I read multiple negative reviews about them on multiple web sites. This reason, along with the fact that I have a Kitchenaid mixer (which I love) was enough reason to trade my Christmas present in.
I decided to buy the Kitchenaid Food Processor 750. However, Amazon.com sent me the 760 model. Maybe they were out of the 750...or maybe I lucked out through a computer glitch. Either way, I'm thrilled with my 760. I highly recommend you spend the extra 20-30$ for the 760 which has a few more attachments, including the juicer.
I have never used a food processor before, always relying on my handy Kitchenaid mixer. Today I used my processor for the first time to make a quick loaf of Banana Macadamia Nut Bread (a recipe included with the processor.) It was so easy to use, the directions were very user-friendly. As a side note, the bread was pretty tasty as well.
The Processor feels a little heavier than I expected, but I guess since it has a bigger motor that is to be expected. It felt very sturdy as it was mixing up my bread, and the motor hummed along fairly quietly. I am amazed at how quickly and expertly it sliced up the bananas! I can't wait to try it out with other recipes.
My parents have a Kitchenaid mixer that I remember using when I was growing up, so it is a good 20+ years old. It still runs like it is brand new. If this is indicative of Kitchenaid products, I expect my food processor will be in the family for many years to come!
As a side note: A friend of mine lives on Kodiak, a large Island in Alaska. She inherited a Kitchenaid mixer from a friend which was missing the bowl, and the cord had been frayed. She contacted Kitchenaid in hopes of fixing it. She said that Kitchenaid sent a repair man to the Island to fix it for her along with a replacement bowl at no cost to her. If this isn't quality customer service, I don't know what is!! I'm not sure if that is what KA really did, but nevertheless, they got her machine working again:) I love Kitchen Aid.
