This review is from: Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom 11-Cup Food Processor, White (Kitchen)
This food processor is made in China. For the same amount of money you can buy an 11 cup Kitchen Aid. It runs smoother, has the slicing blades and a mini bowl. The blades are Sabatier and are excellent. We tried both machines and returned the Cuisinart.

About 25 years ago I bought a Kitchen Aid Food Processor instead of a Cuisinart and am now thinking of finally getting the best, the Cuisinart, but am now reading Kitchen Aid is superior! Well, since my Kitchen Aid still works fine after so many years, as I only use it once in a while, I may have to get a new one, or not. If it ain't broke? Don't fix it!
Thanks for all your comments!

thanks for your suggestion; we were advised to get a KiTcHEn aID, as well. one question: does the metal blade in the Kitchen Aid ever jam on the motor stem if you make too much bread dough?? had this happen twice with the cuisinart 11-cup. the first time it was under warrenty and the manufacturer repaired it without charge. stuck a note right on the front of the machine reminding us to use the plastic dough blade for large bread recipes. however, a small recipe suitable for the metal blade was too moist and required extra flour, causing another jam and a hundred-dollar repair bill!! we had tried everything to loosen it, from pouring oil under the shaft to hanging the blade overnight by a chain. nothing worked!!! they have to literally saw it off, we heard. we loved that mx and all the nice attachments, but this is clearly a HUGE flaw!!!
