I have a Cuisenart food processor. I actually use it very little and
yes it cost a lot. I also have thier mini prep which is just OK.
The Custom 11 I have is very strong. I generally use it only when I
need something chopped very finely, like onions or carrots. For regular
chopping, I just do it by hand; it saves time on both set-up and
clean-up. The bowl on mine is _very_ hard to get on and off. I have a
rubber mallet I use to hit it. They do have a very good consumer help
line if you ever need it. It also is great if you need to grate a ton
of cheese for something-saves those knuckles. You do have to cut things
to size first to fit in the hopper.
