Cuisinart Food Processor--which model?
After reading a bunch of threads on the food processor topic, I'm ready to go ahead and buy a Cuisinart. Hoping to spend $150 or less. Which would you recommend?
I was set to buy the current Costco model last week (11-cup), but started to poke around the web and discovered that Sam's Club had a 9-cup model on closeout, for $50. Had to go across town, as only one of the local Sam's had it, but it was too good a deal to pass up. I checked a few random metro zipcodes on their site, and depending on where you are, you might find a store that still has it in stock.
The differences between this and the Costco model are as follows:
9 cup vs 11 cup
single speed vs multiple
no blade storage vs included holder
plastic dough blade vs metal
white plastic vs stainless finish body
Sure, I would have preferred the Costco model, but really --
$50 vs $150? Assuming you're a member, of course.
It's my first full-size food processor, so I don't have much to compare to, but it works great so far.
That is the one I have... in white. Not much to say about it, works great for me. I make pestos/sauces in it, grate cheese and vegetables.... I'm sure it can do a lot more but I haven't tried much beyond what I've done already. I too like that there aren't a lot of buttons and things, very simple and easy to use.
The Cuisinart DLC-10S food processor is under $100 on some online stores. There are a lot of Hamilton beach food processors at Walmart that are well below $150. They are like around the $50 range.
