Need new food processor - any recommendations?
My 20 year old Moulinex (France)is about to give up. I like the accessories that came with it (5 in all). I've been making bread doughs so I need a food processor that has a strong motor.
same here. I would get another cuisinart without thinking about it. They are the workhorse of my kitchen.
My Cuisinart was made in 1984, and still going strong. I have attachments they no longer make for it, and when it goes, I will replace it with the 14 cup model.
Same decision pending.
My Cuisinart is the original import - late 70s - but getting feeble. It has never spent a minute not on my counter. But I hear the newer Cuisinarts are not as good. Problems with motors, etc.
Consumer Reports, December, 2006, - Best Buy is an $80 KitchenAid KFP710. But I think I want something with a larger capacity. Their #1 rated is KA KFP750; #2 and #3 are also KitchenAid.
Don't need breadmaking - have KA mixer - but thinking of going all the way up to restaurant Robot Coupe. Isn't that by Cuisinart?
Any experience with any of these?
The KitchenAid KPF750 is also rated highest by Cook's Illustrated. The KPF760 is *not* recommended because of a stupid design decision in the feed tube: the plunger needs to be inserted at least halfway before the machine will turn on. I have a simple Cuisinart and it works as well now as it did years ago when I bought it.
We got a Cuisinart in Oct 76 for a wedding present. It is still on the counter. 5 years ago we acquired a second home and bought a new Cuisinart for it. Performance is almost identical. We hope the new one lasts 1/2 as long as the old one, which still runs like the day we got it.
