Food Processors NOT Made in China

I am in the market for a food processor. While I previously owned a Cuisinart food processor that I purchased in 2002, I've since learned that Cuisinart products are manufactured in China.

Could anyone recommend brands that are either manufactured here in the States or elsewhere other than China? Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

  1. magimix / robot coupe are made in France. They are the folks who brought us the Cuisinart. I have not tried them. I like my older Cuisinart made in Japan. I'll bet you could find an older French or Japanese Cuisinart on ebay.

    1. re: tim irvine

      Thank you. (Sorry for the delayed response, I just saw this today).

    2. Yes, tim irvine is right. I have been in the house wares business for years. It seems that all small electrics are made in China. It is rare to find any that have not unless they are quite old. There are some very good products out there, Cuisinart, Krups, Breville etc.

      1. Check your local thrift stores, that is where I find my Made in USA items

        1. Cuisinart makes an XL model, 20 cup, in Japan. We have that model (blades/discs are a combination of Japan and China), as well as the original CFP 5, made by Robot Coupe.

          MagiMix has been very big in Europe for over 20 years and is made by Robot Coupe in France.

          You will pay a hefty price, but you will get quality.

          On ebay, there are vintage food processors from the USA that are very reasonable. Getting replacement discs may be difficult. Also, the Kitchenaids of a few years ago were made in France, and were very heavy.
