    Early impressions are good.

    I have had two of the early, classic Cuisinarts, for a long time, with the only problem over many years was needing to replace on lid after the safety catch broke. This unit feels lighter, which instinctively makes it feel cheaper, but that is potentially an illusion (landline phone makers used to place solid metal weights to make them feel hefty, so one can't go by that alone). The new system makes for a very tall unit, with the safety catch even more annoying (albeit perhaps safer). For instance, you used to be able to take a long english cucumber in the old style unit and push it in while running and then use the safety push at the end. Now, you really can't do that as the feeder part is in two pieces and the one needs to be partially in place to activate the safety, leaving room for about a carrot to do what I just described. The speeds seem slower than the old style also. On the plus side the bowl won't leak liquid if you fill it over 1/3 as the old style did. The grater is nice, in that it has two sides on it. The slicer is also nice in that it is now adjustable in thickness. Time will tell on: 1) Sturdiness (it feels like a candidate for built in obsolescence) 2) how annoying the new feeder system is.

    Replaced old 11 Cup Cuisinart custom Pro, worth it

    We have been happily using the old Cuisinart custom Pro 11 cup food processor (for about 11 years) when the kids misplaced the chopping blade and it was time to replace it. Went to BestBuy and found the Cuisinart Elemental 11 cup and what a difference it was. First of all, it was a little more expensive (not a big deal) but the big difference is if you are processing damp or wet ingredients you can actually do 11 cups. The old custom had the post hole half way up the work bowl so you could only do half the bowl full without the potential of a mess (you can do more but it always leaked something), now we can. Standard Cuisinart quality (which is excellent) and honestly, if we didn't lose the blade, we would still be happily using the old food processor today. Maybe the kids will take it to college...

    This was advertised as an 11 cup food processor. In reality the container itself only holds 9 cups. We thought it was a mistake from the manufacturer so we returned it to Best Buy. Best Buy shipped us another one quickly and we saw the same problem. If you're looking for a 9 cup food processor, this is an excellent product. But we were looking for an 11 cup processor and we're disappointed. We bought it because the reviews of the Cuisinart indicated that the motor was good quality and because the price at the time of purchase was $149. We kept it because we could not find anything better at that price point. We've made several salsas and have pulverized onions, celery, and carrots. We are very happy with the results. We would have given this product 5 stars but the manufacturer screwed this one up. This was not a Best Buy issue.

    I've been looking and reading and watching reviews for about 6 months. I wanted the "professional" model, but wasn't willing to pay the price. I "settled" on this model. It's got a seal so that if your processing liquids (made my own tomato sauce) it won't leak. I've used it to make biscuits and pie crust (awesome job cutting in the butter) and the shredding and slicing attachments are awesome. The shredding disc has both course and fine (really medium) just turn the blade over. The slice blade has settings to adjust the thickness of the slices. The feeder tube is great too.

    Powerful & Doesn’t leak!

    The online description was vague so I was pleasantly surprised to receive my new processor & it was exactly what I wanted. It has a strong 650 watt motor, it has the optional blades for fine & regular grating along with a great tight seal that does not allow liquids to leak out the sides while operating. I make a lot of salsa & with my old processor it would pour out the sides while operating the machine and made a huge mess! This is a perfect processor for many applications. I am very happy with my purchase. I wish the online description was better but Best Buy explained the manufacturer sends that information & it’s sometimes incomplete.

    My wife and I were looking for a food processor and we stubble on this one and TBH I had no super high expectations for it. I wanted it to do chop and slice and I would of been pretty content with that. My wife has been using it for a lot of things and she is very happy and I have also used it for mixing ingredients. She even bread and pizza doe with it too. I am happy with the quality for the amount of money we payed. It is easy to put together and take apart. Has a great food manual and food recipes. I am happy with it and my wife is also very happy with it.

    I have needed a processor for years to assist with my massive holiday cookie production. I used this processor for one recipe and subsequently found a need to use it for another dinner recipe. Using this processor saved an enormous amount of time. Offsetting the time saved w/time needed to clean device - you're still ahead of the game. No returns planned and looking forward to using it again. It makes cooking fun!

    After a whole year still looks brand new. That's because my wife doesn't cook! The first time we washed it it fell out of her hand 6 inches into the sink and voila.. cracked the cover. Super glue to the rescue. I found it rather flimsy not for everyday use. It however cuts and mixes ok.

    The performance of the Cuisinart is great. It's easy to clean. I cook quite a bit and the Cuisinart is perfect for making pesto and other sauces that do no require uniform cutting. Also takes the work out of shredding vegetables. I still to work with a knife for dishes that require uniform cutting.

    This was bought as a wedding gift for my son and spouse. They have used it extensively and love it! I have an older version and love mine so wasn't surprised. They have found it to be very versatile and use it almost daily. Large enough for their needs and makes the cooking tasks so much easier for them with their lifestyle and work schedules

    Seriously, you will enjoy this processor. The one it is replacing lasted 12 years, and it was still working so I gave it to charity. The only reason why I gave it up, is because it was so much heavier than it's replacement. Also a Cuisinart. Much faster and more precise cuts. A great value.

    I have only rated it good because durability is the most important thing. I Hope it earns an excellent. This would require at least 10 years of service. I have had my original one for 30 plus years and it works great! It has gotten hard to get replacement blades and bowls for this one.

    I found this processor much easier to open and close than my last one. It has an o ring and that makes all the difference in the world. You do have to cut the pieces of vegetables smaller to process them finely chopped. It does a great job!

    This food processor was on our wedding registry. The device looks great however we ended up getting a different one from another friend. This caused us to return this one. The device looked great and did appear to be well built.

    Fantastic product. This is our first Cuisinart food processor and it has exceeded expectations. Not the largest bowl but works for what my family needs and works well. Lots of power; great for cookies and pie crust.

    My only complaint is that it opens & closes in the direction I consider backwards. 4 stars rating is only because I do not know how long it will last. My first Cuisinart still works but it is hard to find replacement blades.
