This review for the Cuisinart food processor is NOT sponsored by Cuisinart. I’m writing to share my experience with one of my favourite kitchen appliances and hope the information will be helpful to you.
From time to time, I’d like feature one of my favourite small kitchen appliances or tools. If I could have only one, I think it would be my food processor! It’s been really handy as I prep food for the Elimination Diet that Charlie and I are following. By the way, we’ve lost some weight and our joints feel great! If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen that I went jogging for the first time in years!
I’ve used my Cuisinart food processor for two or three months now. Yes, I’m one of those people who asks for a kitchen appliance for Christmas! Now, that I’ve used it for awhile, let me tell you how much I love it!
I’ve gone through many food processors over the years, as I use mine almost everyday and wouldn’t want to be without it. In fact, my last one (the worst!) was a rush purchase of whichever one was on sale the day my old one broke.
This time, as my old one was beginning to deteriorate, I started to do some serious research. I was determined to finally get a good one.
Cuisinart 8-Cup Food Processor
There are many things I like about my new Cuisinart! It feels solid and is easy to use. It’s very simple to operate without excess pieces – no extra contraptions to fiddle with around the feed tube opening. The reversible slicing/shredding blades simply sit on the post that’s already there. The bowl is shaped in such a way that as food is being chopped, it falls back down into the blade area. Chopping happens quickly and evenly without the need to stop and scrape the sides constantly. I wash the bowl and all my blades in the dishwasher.
While the bowl of my last food processor was dishwasher safe, I preferred to wash it by hand because there was an area where food particles could accumulate and get stuck behind the handle and look gross. I’m thrilled that this one is designed with a solid handle, so there’s no place for dirt to accumulate!
This Cuisinart food processor is mid-priced – a little higher than the cheapest ones but nowhere near the top. It comes with a 2-year warranty. I think it’s a very good value. I expect mine to last longer than my cheaper ones lasted.
You can see my food processor in action in this video where I’m prepping for Coleslaw.
The food processor is useful for slicing and chopping all sorts of vegetables, fruits, and nuts. It also makes very quick work of batters for quick breads, muffins, and cookies.
