Cuisinart 7 cup Food Processor
DLC-10S Pro Classic
Food processors have gone from being a luxury item to a nearly essential part of various culinary efforts.
Products like the Cuisinart 7 cup food processor
cut down on the time and effort that normal food preparation
Just consider one day of chopping, needing or slicing. A good food processor reduces all that manual
labor and makes short-work of getting ready for nearly any meal.
That means when youre ready to invest in a
food processor it will be something you use often!
When youre shopping for food processors you want one with good blades, a large enough capacity for your
average meals preparation, and the ability to put in both small and large items into the machine.
respect the Cuisinart 7 cup food processor doesnt disappoint. It comes equipped with a stainless steel
chopping and mixing blade as well as a dough blade for bakers.
It also has a feeding tube with different sized openings and an alternative cover for when youre just using
it to mix things evenly.
So if youre tired of having to use 20 different kitchen tools for slicing and dicing, let alone the effort
it takes to knead dough, you may want to look into this little machine.
Remember that a 7 cup capacity does not mean you can actually put 7 cups of ingredients in this and have
it function properly. When over-filled it wont chop effectively and some juices may leak out of the machine.
Also the overall assembly appears a little clunky.
There have been a few disparaging remarks about the Cusinart 7 cup food processor. Some feel its too small
for serious cooks.
Others had concerns about the system getting hot when working dough (they wondered if
this was a safety issue). Other buyers still said that the power seems lacking for hefty jobs and that the
feeding tub is hard to clean thoroughly.
Those that like this appliance commented on the 30 minute video that proved helpful for people unfamiliar
with food processors in general. These buyers enjoyed the recipe booklet, and the fact that this food processor
saves time and effort in the kitchen (i.e. it does what it was intended to do).

The Cuisinart Pro Classic
costs between $100 and $180. Thats not a bad price considering how
much your time is worth (rather than slaving over a mandolin or food masher have more time with family!).
Be aware, however, that the blade on this machine isnt covered by warrantee and you have to foot the bill
for getting a new part. (including shipping).
Its odd to me that Cuisinart wouldnt stand behind such a key
element to the overall functionality of this appliance.
