Powerful and attractive,
This review is from: Cuisinart DFP-14BCN 14-Cup Food Processor, Brushed Stainless Steel (Kitchen)I read the reviews listed here before I purchased my Cuisinart 14-cup food processor from Amazon. Since I have received my processor, I can say that I have had similar experiences as many others have. Yes, it is aggravating that you have to leave the pusher assembly in place while running, having to remove it to add extra ingredients. Yes, it is very aggravating to wash those shredder discs, especially after shredding mozzerella cheese. It took me almost ten minutes to dig all the little gummed-up pieces of cheese out of the nooks and crannies. But it is powerful. Nothing will bogg this thing down. It works like a breeze. I love the large bowl and the large feed shoot. I made my decision to purchase based on the size and the watts. Mine is also very quite, which suprised me. It looks beautiful and massive sitting on the counter. Yes, you will want to leave it out. It is very heavy. But from now on, I'm going to stick the blades in the dishwasher.

Use a tooth brush to clean the shredder discs.

I have a small brush that has a handle on it in my kitchen for jobs like cleaning cheese out of sneaky hard to get places and surfaces.
I would never put any of my food processor parts in the dishwasher. Not the blades nor the plastic parts,...if you want them to last a lot longer, don't do it. Of course all manufactures are going to tell you that they are dishwasher safe because otherwise no one would buy them! The dishwasher weakens the plastic and dulls blades and disks, and so does soaking in water for too long.
