Cuisinart 11 cup Food ProcessorReview of the If you havent jumped on the food processor band wagon yet, Cuisinart 11 cup Food processor may just get you motivated for a test drive. There are so many things that good machinery offers to a home culinarian. In this case its 11 cups worth of slicing, dicing, chopping, shredding, mixing and fixing!
All the parts of the food processor are dishwasher safe. And for those individuals who have never used a food processer before, the half hour video and 50-page recipe book will come in very handy.
Of all the settings on this machine the one for Dough makes it relatively unique in the food processing genre as this feature is usually reserved for mixers.
Finally, one of the color options is brushed chrome thats visually impressive in any modern kitchen.
ConsiderationsThis is another Cuisinart machine thats rather tough on countertop real estate space. Its a hefty 16 pounds of power, measuring 11 x 14 so keep those dimensions in mind when figuring out if it will fit in your kitchen.
With a machine this size Cuisinart should have considered a longer electrical cord so owners could have more flexibility in placement. Additionally the plastic parts on this food processor seem delicate and could easily chip or crack if not put away carefully.
Consumer ReviewsThe general consensus for the Cuisinart 11 cup food processor is that its a hard worker but made with very poor construction materials. Several customers complained that lids or the pusher assembly would crack quite easily. When these problems were reported to customer service well, nothing got resolved. This report of frustrated customers from a service standpoint is something to which Cuisinart should begin paying attention.
Other complaints included the lack of stainless blades, and a stiffness in the on-off switch.
On the upside people seem to like the speed and processing power, as well as the 11 cup capacity and the solid base.
FeaturesCuisinart 11 cup food processor offers;
SummaryThe price for this food processor ranges from $150 $300. That puts it within $40 of Kitchenaids 12 cup food processor , which gets consistently higher satisfaction ratings.
Additionally it should be noted that most of Cuisinarts other food processors also get better ratings than this one. This lead me to believe there are some design flaws that could be fixed to make this a superior product.
