When you need one, you need it and settling for cheap isn't smart. I've had a food processor for over 30 years and it has been so valuable. I started with a Robot Coupe and from there went to the Cuisinart 11 cup. Chopping onions and peppers together, mixing up nut butters, grinding large blocks of cheese into shreds (the cheese actually tastes like cheese instead of the dead products they sell for a fortune already grated at the store), shredding heads of cabbage into slaw and any task that would require a knife or grater and is a drudge to do. The food processor does the job in ZOOM time and does it well.

My Cuisinart is the one small appliance I would not live without. I use it for shredding cheese, making quick bread dough, cookies, soups. It is wonderful when you are canning or making jelly. We use it all the time. I've probably had it for 30+ years. Never had a problem with it. Cuisinart is the best!

I spent $ on other products that I ended up not being happy with, had I purchased the Vitamix first instead of trying to save $ I wouldn't have been more $ behind. It will do cheese, make hamburg out of steak, etc etc. You can watch a video of it on QVC which is where I bought mine, to see all that it can do.
QVC has it on right now, and it looks amazing, especially for the hot soups.

I have a Braun at the cottage - it is ok, but I much prefer the Cuisinart.

Maybe its cheaper to buy grated cheese than invest in a machine... but I do use it for other things sometimes!
Love my Cuisinart, its so old it used to be white now its yellow. Its great from everything from chopping, shredding to making bread dough. Up until I bought my Ninja blender, it did it all. I used to not care for blenders because unless there was lots of fluid it would get all stuck in the bottom. If my processor breakes, I'll buy another one because it makes my life easier.

From above post: excellent product prior to the China thing
Here's the thing, we all would love to buy American but its becoming allmost impossible. I own a ford but I'll guarantee there are parts from all over the world on it. I own Vikings, and yes, alot of Vikings are now made in China but I was told by their rep, that yes they are made there but Viking has thier own company/factory there so they are still controlling the quality of the product. Companies are going to make thier products where they can make the most profits, that's the bottom line. About the only thing that you can count on being American made is fresh produce and unfrozen meat, I hope. Do your research and see what will meet your needs. What ever you buy, use it alot the first week or so and put it thru the test and if it doesn't hold up, return it and try another model.

I have a Cuisinart that I've had many years and love it. I grate cabbage for coleslaw, chop nuts, any veggie that is in need to be chopped. Sometimes even meat for Brunswick stew. If I cook a large chuck of meat like a pork loin I will chop it for B-B-Q. There is many uses for it. More will come as you use it.
