Views On K/A Food Processors?

Does anyone here have one?
If so how well do you like it?

My husband wants to get into the kitchen a little more these days. So I'm looking to buy him a food processor. It's pretty much the only thing this kitchen lacks.

I've had terrible luck with them in the past. We don't get along, never have.

To suit our family I'm looking at this one. Not the price. Shopping around.

Kitchen Aid and Cuisinart are the two brands at the top of the list. You can't go wrong with either one. The one you linked is big and should handle any recipe. You'd need at least an 11 cup capacity to handle most recipes.

Make sure he agrees to cleaning it Munky. Unless I'm cooking for a crowd, I'll avoid one at all costs.....hate cleaning it.

Sorry Kayelle. The idea is to make his life a little easier.
That's why we have sons. They can do the clean up

I just put mine in the DW. I wouldn't buy one unless it's DW safe.

Well, here we only run the dishwasher about every three days, and by the end of three days all the processor parts would be glued with food unless all the parts were thoroughly washed first. Jus sayin...

Some DWs have a "Rinse and Hold" feature.

Hello, Chef Munky
I think you can trust on KitchenAid. The most important thing which I have seen is a plastic seal. Which avoids any sort of leakage as well.

I have an 11-cup Cuisinart that I like, but don't use often. Runs like a top, though and is very sturdy. I've had mine about a decade, but it's similar to this one: Cuisinart Prep 11 Plus™ 11-Cup Food Processor - BedBathandBeyond.com I did catch mine on sale, used one of BedBugsandBeyond's 20% off discount coupons, and ended up paying around $100 back then.

FWIW, I have a small Cuisinart mini-prep processor - a 2-cupper. It's going to need replacing because it does get a lot of work, so I've been eyeing their replacement, the 3-cup Mini-Prep. I suppose I got my money's worth for it since I've had it since before 1990 - and I DO use that one a lot.

Munky, I guess I'm just wondering why? Because of what you said, wouldn't it be better if the two of you shopped for a great knife for just him to call is own for helping in the kitchen?
