I bought one a couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely love it! I also bought the mini version of it yesterday.

I LOVE mine! No complaints whatsoever. I see that there's now a 12-cup Elite model, as well as the 14 and 16 cup models. I really don't find mine to be so huge that I wish I'd bought a smaller capacity one, although either of the others would have been fine.

I've never had a food processor with a dough speed before, and I love it for those times when I want to be a bit more gentle with whatever I'm processing. The bread doughs that I've made have been wonderful.

I really like the adjustable slicing disc, as well as the reversible shredding disc, too. All in all, I'm really happy with my purchase. I think all of the little complaints that I've had over the years with my food processors have been addressed with the Elite model. Hope you like yours when you get it.

Out of curiosity, what were your complaints about other FPs? I'm not familiar with the elites and I'd like to know what's new with them.

The only complaint I can think of right now with the KA FP we have is that using the small bowl requires and dirties the larger bowl as well.

My complaints weren't numerous, but the little things used to drive me crazy. I didn't like the way my KA chopped food, as the pieces were not very uniform. Even more importantly, it didn't seem to brake immediately, resulting in overprocessed foods. (My Cuisinarts always seemed to "stop on a dime.") I, like you, didn't like that the use of my small bowl always resulted in having to wash the large bowl, as well.

Food used to get in the handle of my other food processors, but I haven't noticed that happening at all with my Cuisinart Elite. Even if food gets under the gasket, the lid is made in such a way that the food will flush out with a good, strong stream of water.

As I said in my previous post, I LOVE the adjustable slicing disc, as well as the reversible shredding disc. Also, as I said, I really like the dough speed.

I'm sure there are other things that I could think of if I had more time, but those are some of the major ones.

kitchenaid is crap

My kitchenaid processer is literally falling a part .handle ,hub lugs and all. I'm going to buy a Robot Coupe R2AnnS , Three times as much dollars and can be used commercialy everyday without breaking. I have a 12 quart Hobart mixer that Humms quietly through 12 loaves of whole wheat or with the food grinder doesn't slow down . Compare that to my kitchenaid 5 qt stand mixer that screams loudly through anything ands stalls when using the food grinder. We are being sold crap with pretty buttons for houshold use. I will only buy commercial stuff now cause at least you only buy once and can resell if ya want. Regards Gage

It is made in usa ( or france) ( I'm in Canada and it comes from USA distributor ) $ 1000 CDN dollars . If I buy another kitchenaid I would have paid 2/3 of the robot coupe price and still have a toy. I think some robot coupe are France and some are USA. check out RobotCoupe.com. The one i'm getting is R2N ANN -two process bowls and lids ,one clear and one stainless ,plus the flow through slicer/shredder.
I think robotcoupe calls it an R2N Ultra in the states , only here you get a clear bowl plus stainless bowl and veg prep top.
check out the videos demonstations at the site robotcoupe.com
