Recommendations on a good food processor.

I'm looking at buying a good food processor and i just want to see what are some of the good brands out there. I'm not looking for top of the line but i want one that is good quality. Thanks.

    Antilope, you're awesome to alway post the CI reviews. Do you know what the concerns were with the Cuisinart Elite, that it's recommended only 'with reservations'?

    Many thanks.

      Cook's Illustrated stated that the Cusinart Elite 14-cup food processor,
      was powerful (good at making pizza dough) and had extra bowls, but it did not perform better than the Kitchen Aid 12-cup (which was cheaper, more compact and simpler).
      The Cusinart's drawbacks were food bits being trapped by the "Sealtight"
      lid, Mayonnaise not perfectly emulsified and chopped carrots having wasted end pieces.

        That's what it says on the website. Many magazines are released prior to the actual date on the cover.
