A heavy duty 1000 watt induction motor, built like no other.

1) The bowl is designed in such a way as to not have a hole in the middle of it. Yes, that's right. You no longer have to worry about spilling food through the hole when transferring it out of the bowl.
2) The food chute has THREE different sizes, including a very small hole that is perfect for holding carrots. Additionally, the smallest hole tube is a measuring cup, because why leave it as a useless piece of plastic?
3) The blade sits very low to the bottom, allowing you to process small quantities of food easily, even in the 12 cup bowl.
4) There is cord storage built into the machine, so you don't have to find a place to stash the cord.
5) The slicing disk offers you 30 different widths for slicing, not just 5 or 6 key slices.
6) The bowl and the lid twist on--no pesky trying to get everything snapped perfectly in place in order to trigger all the right safety mechanisms and get the machine going.
7) Perhaps the greatest example of thoughtfulness is the hole in the plug. There is a finger hole in the plug to make it easy to unplug. I know that seems unimportant, but it is a great example of just how much thought was put into the design.
As for how it works... As I said, it can process a large and a small quantity of food easily. Just to test it out, I placed a whole, uncut onion in and pulsed. It somehow managed to get it all diced perfectly. I also made homemade chocolate hazelnut butter. I was impressed with how quickly it ground the nuts and began to release their oil. I also only had to stop once to scrape down the sides, and that was right at the very beginning. I am very happy with my purchase, and I'm glad I spent the extra money to get something that has such an intuitive design and that works so precisely and quickly.
For starters, looking at this machine fully assembled, it has a quality well-built look to it with smooth precise lines and ergonomic appeal that does not intimidate. It has the same three buttons its predecessor (Cuisinart 7-cup) had but that seems to be where the similarities end.
My wife chops, slices, grates, and blends with this device while my use of it is pretty much limited to making almond butter and peanut butter. This Breville does a great job with nut butters in a couple of minutes.
Sliding the top either clockwise to lock it or counterclockwise to open it tells you this is a better class of food processor. Movement is precise, smooth, and easy. Every piece fits well.
The main blade storage unit is very well thought out too. Once removed from a processing job, it can be placed in the blade storage unit dirty and then the whole thing (storage unit and blade) washed, dried, and stored for next use without ever touching the steel blades. The slicer blade provides adjustable thickness, which was new to us, and the shredder blade is a familiar older design. A removable spindle must be in place for any blade to spin, which is a nice safety feature that can prevent accidents. We store the spindle outside the bowl for that reason.
We love this machine and feel it will give good service for a long time. But if for whatever reason it fails to live up to expectations, I will be all over it in a future revision to this review.
This is the third food processor I have owned in 40 years of cooking. Food processors are my favorite go to kitchen appliance. When my current machine was fading I read all the reviews in consumer 'journals' and amazon. Clearly the Breville was the way to go. My spouse encouraged to 'go for the best'. I looked at the larger capacity in store but choose the 12 cup smaller unit as it suited my family's needs.
I used it five times in ten days and each time water collected in the handle. The worst was when water went about 1/3 the way up inside the handle. Then I paused using it for five days, allowing for more than sufficient drying time. Next time I turned it on the start and pause buttons were not working as smoothing as they had previously, in fact at times not working at all. It made me wonder if water somehow got into the switch.
When I first reported the problem by email, a customer service rep did call and we discussed the problem, she did not have an explanation. She sent me a replacement, which arrived about ten business days later. However she sent a lid, not the bowl.
Then I entered a ten day period of customer service non responsiveness. I called and left my number four times on the company support line. I never heard back from them. I even left two different numbers, home and cell. Problem with brand new machine, wrong replacement part and now, non responsive customer service. It was trying my patience.
At that point, I emailed back and did get after 3 business days a phone call. The 'email' customer service person insisted she sent me the correct part, but I pointed out there is no handle on the lid/cover. It turns out she had heard of this problem only once before on the bigger machine. The smaller one is too new, less than a year old, that there is no bowl replacement yet being made.
So in the end I returned it to place of purchase, Bed, Bath and Beyond. The manager and I took their floor model and took it to their break room and 'washed' the bowl in the sink. Low and behold, water immediately found its way into the handle. Not as much as mine, but it is clearly NOT a closed system handle.
Clearly the handle is designed on both sizes to NOT be a closed system. I suspect I got a machine where the handle 'hole' was just a bit too big. The thoroughly annoying part of all this, the machine does what it needs to do beautifully, best I have ever had, and it was not easy spending that kind of money on a kitchen appliance. The level of customer service added insult to injury.
Not sure what I am going to do about replacing my current fading fast food processor.
