Top 3 Cuisinart Food Processors Reviews you should read!
Okay so I’ve talked a lot about Cuisinart. They’re a solid kitchen tool brand and I’ve been relying on their products for as long as I can remember.
I recently sat down and read a couple of Cuisinart Food Processor Reviews, but they all seem to be talking in circles, so I decided to craft a plan of action.
I set out and got my hands on 2 other models to ensure I had 3 different Cuisinart blenders to test out so that I could write something that would be more helpful than most other crap the web searches gave me.
If you’re stuck trying to decide on which model Cuisinart blender you want to invest in, read this first and then make an informed decision.
As you might recall, I own the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Food Processor, so she’s in at my number 1 spot. Next up I’ll rant about the Cuisinart Elite Collection 14-Cup Blender and finally I tackle the Cuisinart Pro Classic DLC-10S.
Here’s how they performed in my kitchen…
My Cuisinart Food Processor Reviews
1. Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup DFP-14BCN
I love my 14-cup blender’s ability to tackle just about anything I need it to do. The design is simple, I mean it comes with no variable speed settings or touch panel controls, but there is a lot of beauty in simplicity, and it’ll also last much longer than high-tech blenders whose brains get fried! It’s very versatile and delivers consistent results (well, 99% of the time). It comes with a single S blade, a cutting disk and a dough hook, and it’s been the star of my kitchen for well over 3 years.
- It has adjustable blades which allows for variable levels of thickness when you’re chopping food
- It’s very versatile
- It’s simple and durable
- It’s easy to use
- It has a massive feeding chute
- It’ll randomly cut up a chunk of food way thinner than I had set it to do
- Cleanup takes a little long since you’ll have to take out all the parts and hand wash them
My overall thoughts
If you want power combined with quality parts, this is your go-to tool. It’ll cut, puree and mix a wide range of ingredients and it’s got more than enough engine power to get the job done in a jiffy.
2. Cuisinart Elite Collection FP-14DCN
The Cuisinart Elite 14-Cup Food Processor is a high-speed blender that’s driven by a very powerful motor; I’m talking 1,300 watts of power here! But straight off the bat I had beef with the fact that it delivered inconsistent thickness between pieces when slicing, no matter what kind of food I was processing.
What really appreciated though was how easy it was to clean. It’s put together with the minimum amount of pieces plus the bowl is dishwasher safe, leaving just the internal parts to hand wash. It sports straightforward buttons and controls, so it’s very user friendly, and unlike the Custom 14, it has a pulse, dough and on setting, which gives you a little more variety of options.
Other than that it also comes with 3 blades and 2 disks, which all-in-all paints a pretty great picture.
- It comes with an amazing 20 year motor warranty
- It’s easy to use
- It’s easy to clean
- It comes with 3 settings
- Food tends to get processed in varying sizes
My overall thoughts:
The Cuisinart Elite 14 is powerful and it’ll cut and chop what you need it to, albeit you’ll have to be okay with imperfect results if you decide to settle with this one.
3. Cuisinart Pro Classic DLC-10S
So I threw in the old-faithful, 7-cup food processor from Cuisinart, the Pro Classic just to cater to a wider range of needs. I have to say that for its tiny size, this blender packs a powerful punch! It’s not going to excel at cutting up soft cheese and it won’t whip up the perfect dressing, and simple design means if you put it under strenuous test, it’ll burn up on you.
What it is though is very compact, much less noisy than most other blenders and the perfect buddy for smaller cooking applications. I like it because it’s convenient and very easy to use, plus it comes with a single blade, a slicing disc and a shredding disc. So you can confidently cut, shred and blend a wide variety of foods, heck they even throw in a handy little recipe and instruction booklet for you to master this little blender!
- It has a very powerful motor
- It’s compact
- It’s ideal for small cooking tasks
- It’s not as noisy as many other processors
- The blade sits too high up, which prevents it from reaching the bottom of the bowl
- This is not your best friend for making condiments or smoothies
- It’s not ideal for big processing tasks
My overall thoughts:
If you need a food processor that’ll mainly tackle veggie chopping tasks, go for the Pro Classic because it’s powerful and compact, but if you’re going to try making green smoothies with it, good luck!
I’ve shown you 3 great options with this Cuisinart Food Processor Reviews roundup, and I really hope that this has helped you make a decision today. Cuisinart blenders are just amazing. End of story. It doesn’t really matter which model you go for, as long as you make your pick according to your intended usage for it!
Make sure you check back in with me again soon because I’ll be sharing my insider info with you on the Sunbeam Oskar Original Food Processor next. After that it’s time to talk about the Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender, and finally the KitchenAid 9-and-12 Cup Food Processor 5-Disc Set.
