I want Santa to bring me a food processor. It's funny that I never had anything but a mini chopper, since I used to cook for a lot of people, but now it is just the 2 of us and we hardly ever have guests. Anyway, a food processor is on my bucket list, so what size and what kind do you like? Cuisinart or Kitchenaid?

Of those two, I would go with KitchenAid. Every Cuisinart small appliance I've ever had, with the exception of the toaster oven, has crapped out on me or had such a whiny motor I couldn't use it.

My food processor now is a 900 watt Wolfgang Puck. It's strong and quiet, and I love it. Also, it's aubergine!

For food processors, I like the Cuisinart.

Kitchenaid is better made and is a more reliable company to deal with.

If you plan on using it a lot, go with a kitchenaid. They are made to last through a lot of use. For occasional use, Cuisinart is good as well.

Interesting that I stumbled across this topic. I went to 3 major stores to buy my daughter a food processor and was
surprised that there were only 3-4 models available but there were so many choices for blenders and panini makers.
I've had my cuisineart for many years, still going strong. I noticed some do not have all the blades and there was
one that didn't have a feed tube. Maybe there are more options on line.

Thirty years ago Cuisinart was a small company that made great, if expensive, food processors. Once they started expanding to other appliances for the American market the quality went way down. America’s Test Kitchen, which exhaustively tests and evaluates kitchen equipment, uses KitchenAid food processors. I agree it’s a better choice.
