I have a Robot Coupe. That is the company in France that made the original Cuisinarts before they started having them made in China. I have two of them one large, one small and love them both!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have a Cuisinart, I think 12C. I wanted to use it for grating taro, green bananas and other heavy African and Caribbean tubers but it over heats, stops, and slows me down: what is a really good, really *HEAVY DUTY* food processor with good blade options? Thanks.

Howdy and Welcome to DC!

If you have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer you could try the slicer shredder attachment. It's heavy duty. I didn't like the way it sliced potato for gratins so I returned it. Might work for the heavy tubers if you use slower speeds on the mixer.

Heavy Tubers

NICE! and I thank you. I looked it up and saw the demo online
...but

I'm thinking that there's a more powerful machine than KitchenAide. I made a brioche once w/a friend's KitchenAid...suffice it to say he's no longer a friend Doesn't Vulcan or some other company make a counter-top ready, bad-azz, big horsepower processor?
