  • Very Nice

    My mother had an ancient Cuisinart....almost as old as I am. Her kitchen is small and she needed her appliances to match and look nice all stacked in the corner of the counter. She loves it and the stainless crockpot I got her.

  • Great product but cleaning not easy

    Have always liked Cuisinart food processors... they do the job nicely and simply. This version is also wonderful. But the new design of blades and lid make it quite an ordeal to clean the cavities. There are some areas that can't be reached even with a tooth brush...

    Very pleased with this purchase. Finally had a chance to use it at Easter and it performed beautifully. Used it for shredding cabbage, kneading bread, cookie and noodle dough. Will be using it a lot more now that we are finally settled into our new home. Highly recommend.

  • Good

    I purchased this processor just before Thanksgiving to help me with prep work. It really came in handy with slicing the vegetables for the stuffing, especially the onions. The adjustable slicing disc was very convenient and handy when time is limited. I also used the processor to make appetizers with the mixing blade. I found the machine very helpful and cut my time in the kitchen down tremendously.

    I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great food processor. I just can't say enough about what you can do with is processor. Now I need to order holder for the blades.

  • Awesome Value

    After 24 years with a Cuisinart mini, it was time to replace and upgrade. The hubby wanted to get me the biggest, baddest Cuisinart he could find. But there are times the smaller size of the mini was just right. Enter the Cuisinart Elite with TWO bowls. Brilliant! This is a hefty horsepower model with a sleek stainless housing that goes perfectly with modern stainless kitchen appliances. The DVD that comes with the unit helps explain everything and offers some tasty recipes. Being able to dial in the correct thickness on the slicing disc is genius, as are the two sizes of shred on the shredding disc. The only drawback I've found is that pieces that are very small fall around the side of the slicing and shredding disc into the bowl. Example: don't try shredding baby carrots for coleslaw, you'll end up with half shredded chunks in the bowl mixed in with brilliantly shredded carrots and spend five minutes digging chunks out. Otherwise, this is a great unit at a wonderful price.

  • Great product

    Cuisinart is one of my favorite brands and this food processor only solidifies my good feelings. It is powerful and compact and comes with a How-To DVD for those of us who tend to overlook the instruction booklet. I love that it has both a 4-cup work bowl and a 12-cup work bowl for smaller and larger jobs. It is extremely heavy, though, so taking it in and out of your cupboard is a bit of a workout.

Questions & Answers

  • does it come with a blade storage box

    • Hello NJ, yes this comes with a blade storage. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

  • Why did you choose this product?

    • Cuisinart is always my first choice. My last Cuisinart food processor still works, but is finally, after 15 years, struggling a bit. I use it at least 5 times per week in any given week. I chose this particular one because it has the dough blade and spatula blade - looking forward to using that because my old one did not have those features.

  • does this come with the 10 yr manufacturer motor warranty as well?

    • Hello caryn331, this includes a 3 year limited manufacturer warranty. Thanks for shopping with us!

  • Does this have the accessory case?

    • Hi artistwantobe2, unfortunately this item does not include a carrying case. We apologize for the inconvenience.

  • What is the advantage of die-cast metal in this processor over the alternative FP-12 Elite White 12-cup processor?

    • Stainless steel adjustable slicing disc 1 to 6mm Stainless steel reversible shredding disc (fine/medium) Large and small stainless steel chopping/mixing blades Spatula

  • Is this BPA Free? I know all Cuisinart Elite 12 Cup food processors that are manufactured in 2012 are BPA free. Please confirm.
