I have the 4 cup version. It only holds 2 cups of liquid, though. I found the 2 cup version to be too small, as it only holds 1 cup of liquid. The big Cuisinart is rarely used.

I can't imagine not having a food processor. It's the one appliance I use the most.

I agree with Andy. An 11 quart cuisinart or kitchen aid is the way to go.

It goes in the dishwasher for the most part but I have always found them super easy to hand wash when needed. Easier than most things.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

I bought my first food processor, a Cuisinart, in 1978 and used it (a lot) until two years ago when it finally just couldn't keep up and replacement blades were no longer available. Glenn bought me a newer model with a larger capacity and multiple work bowls. I love, love, love it. Easy to use and I've had absolutely no issue with cleaning any part of it.

I don't know where Glenn bought it or how much he paid for it because it was one of my Christmas gifts. I just know it's a workhorse and I really like it. For a look-see, here's what I have.

Actually, this may not be exactly the one I have because ours has 3 work bowls. This one seems to list only two.

Why? Because the last 2 that I've had were cheap. I've been put off by them for years. Cheap motors,gaskets. Can't even remember the name brands. It's been that long.

Now that he wants to be in the kitchen more I want to get him a top notch food processor.
It's going to be nice having some company in the kitchen for a change. Looking forward to getting a new one.
If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

Glad you cleared up the "why" Munky, as that just wasn't clear at the start. If he wants one, by all means get the best available. There's nothing more wonderful than having a happy cook by your side in the kitchen.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
