Recommend a food processor?

I get to go shopping to find myself a food processor... I haven't had one in a good couple years.

Does anybody recommend a good one to get.. OR not to get??

any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

Girl, I got an old Cuisenart that I got many many years ago. Thing still works like a charm after 10+ years. I'm sure someone can comment on the newer models that are out there. I'm kinda behind the times!

I've had my 11 cup Cuisinart for about 8 years and I use it to death. I have several slicing, shredding,etc. discs to go with it. I also have a flat cover so I don't have to wash the whole dang top when I chop something. I love this food processor but I'm sure there are other good ones on the market. Me? I'll stick with Cuisinart.

It is hard to say. I probably won't venture down that path till the one I have finally gives up the ghost. And if and when that happens, I'll probably opt for another Cusineart.

I'm of no help am I???

I have an old Cuis' 14 cup fp (DLC7 superpro), and all the accessory discs. It works beautifully, and it was a replacement for an 11 cup KitchenAid. I also have a backup, an older (read;made in Japan, not China) Cuis' 11 cup, with accessory discs and the side chute. Having tried KA and Cuis', I like the Cuis' better. And I prefer the older models.

Me too gadzooks!

The old cuisinart food processors are bombproof and easily found on Ebay and in thrift shops.

They are great! I like the 14 cup model for most households, but the 11 cup model is great also.

I have had my 7cup, 11cup, 14cup, and 20cup model Cuisinarts for many happy years.

I have a Kitchaid Professional 14 cup with two smaller bowls. It really is wonderful, but I wouldn't have spent so much money. It was a gift. It is very powerful and nice to look at, as well.

I have a KitchenAid 9 cup, and it's great! I just got 5 new discs for Christmas, and I'm looking forward to using my FP even more...

This is the only FP I've owned, so I'm not sure if it's an issue with others, but the bowl will leak if you have too much liquid in it. So for liquidy stuff, I just use the blender...
