food processors

Hello everyone:

I am doing some research on my favorite topic...food processors! I would like to ask that everyone let me know what their favorite model food processors are, why you love them, and how long you have been using your food processor. Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: food processors

Magimix 5200 ... Motor, three bowls ... Used Magimixes since the 1980s. This is my third. Have either gifted or sold the previous ones. Love them. Use for both work and for family.

Welcome to the forums. Good luck with your research.

Re: food processors

Don't get Beeville or Kenwood. I've got a mini processor attachment on my Cuisinart blender. It is great. So next big processor will be magimix or Cuisinart

Re: food processors

My old Braun was an appliance miracle - still working after 22 years.  The only problem was the stand for holding the cutting discs broke when using it to grate hard cheese.  We replaced it once, then could no longer get the part the second time as the model isn't made anymore. sad

Re: food processors

Thanks everyone for the responses so far. Does anyone have any experience, positive or negative, with Kitchen Aid model food processors? So far, I have seen a great deal of problems with Kitchen Aid processors, however I actually own the Kitchen Aid KFP0711 and have had great experience. Any thoughts?

Thanks again for the insights...this is really helpful to me.

Re: food processors

Welcome to the forum JosephBrown23 smile

I've also used Magimix's since the 80's and could not manage without one !

Are you meaning Kitchen Aid stand mixers Joe ? I love mine and if used correctly they are great machines , unlike most other stand mixers they run on a series of gears .
My Kitchen Aid stand mixer is also something I would not be wthout .

Re: food processors

Thanks mummza, I will check with MrP who did the researching for the part.  I'm pretty sure he exhausted all avenues.  We bought another food processor in the meantime, but haven't had the heart to get rid of the old one yet.  The new one is CuisineArt and I would say it's adequate or sort of meh . . . it has one of the sharpest and most dangerous chopping blades . . .  when soapy and wet - it sliced us both badly . . . just short of trips to the ER, so the rule now is, no hand-washing of the blade - it must go in the dishwasher.  In fact, do not buy this machine if you don't have a dishwasher.  It's much too dangerous to wash by hand.
