Cuisinart 11 cup Food Processor

Review of the If you haven’t 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 it’s 11 cups worth of slicing, dicing, chopping, shredding, mixing and fixing!

Positive Features

Food processors should speed up various kitchen chores. The more options they offer, the more you can use them. Basically when shopping you want to find a machine that emulsifies, minces, shreds, chops, etc. For versatility, Cuisinart’s 11 cup food processor doesn’t disappoint. I also like the fact that it has two feeding tubes, one of which is large for bigger components (like potatoes).

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 that’s visually impressive in any modern kitchen.

Considerations

This is another Cuisinart machine that’s rather tough on countertop real estate space. It’s 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 Reviews

The general consensus for the Cuisinart 11 cup food processor is that it’s 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.

Features

Cuisinart 11 cup food processor offers;
  • A variety of functions & blades to meet a variety of kitchen preparation needs
  • Large capacity work bowl
  • Two feeding tubes, one of which is for larger items
  • Five year warranty on the motor\
  • Recipe collection
  • Instructional video

Summary

The price for this food processor ranges from $150 – $300. That puts it within $40 of Kitchenaid’s 12 cup food processor , which gets consistently higher satisfaction ratings.

Additionally it should be noted that most of Cuisinart’s 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.

Amazon has the Cuisinart 11-Cup Pro Custom 11 Food Processors for about $195.00 and ships for free with the super saver shipping.
