    Food Processor Suggestions?

    I love trying out all the new primal recipes, but I think I have finally realized I need a decent food processor. I have an electric chopper but it's tiny so some things take quite awhile.

    Any suggestions on models that you love?

    I currently have a 7 Cup Cuisinart food processor. It is amazing and I can't believe that I went so long without one. I would recommend Cuisinart. Go for the 11 Cup food processor. It'll be the next step for me and it will take care of any mixing/blending/chopping job you need.

    I have a Cuisinart Smart power duet. It's a blender/ food processor combination. Same base, different attachments. Saves space in my cupboard, works equally as well with both attachments. It also came with a grater attachment. I love the thing.

    Yes, you do need a food processor. I use mine nearly daily.

    I have the Cuisinart 14c and wouldn't go any smaller doing meals for 4 and sometimes more. I often wish i had the 20c version but that's $700-$1k iirc

    I've been through kitchenaid and other less expensive options. Don't bother. For this, get a cuisinart.

    I've got a kitchenaid 12cup food processor. Ultra heavy duty with a powerful motor. Quiet as all get up too. Highly recommended by myself.
    I grok, therefore I am.

    I've got one of those combo blender food processors. I think its kitchen aid. And its at costco right now. It might be like a 4 cup. Works for my little fam perfectly. Oh and it was like $24 i think.

    Yep - Cuisinart 14 cup.

    Ours is a few years old, but I think this is the current version:
