Very temperamental machine
Best Uses
Pie Dough
I loved my old Cuisinart food processor, it lasted for many years in spite of hard usage. I didn't think twice about buying the same thing again but the new version just isn't very good. When it chooses to work, it processes pie dough beautifully but the slicer doesn't work well with carrots sliding around the blade. I actually returned my first one because it wouldn't turn on. The next one worked better for awhile but now I can't seem to get the work bowl and lid to align properly with the button on the base that turns the motor on. I give up and am changing brands.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Can't find replacement parts
Parts not available
Plastic parts not durable
Best Uses
Fine Shredding
Kneading Bread
I love this machine, but the lid cracked after about 2 years of use. Can't find a new lid anywhere, and Cuisinart says that it will be at least another 30 days to replace it. The large pusher sleeve cracked after only about a year, but at least it doesn't render the machine unusuable. If the lid cracks, you can't start the machine at all.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Great product, but discontinued!
Best Uses
This machine has performed well for me and I think it is a well-designed product. However, BEWARE! This model has been discontinued, even though it does not say so on the Cuisinart website. This means extra accessories and parts are hard to find. I recently attempted to purchase the fine shredding disc, only to find they are no longer available. The Cuisinart website continues to advertise them as being in stock, which is very misleading. What a disappointment after investing hundreds of dollars in the machine and other accessory parts, only to find I cannot do everything with the product that I intended when I purchased it.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
