So excited to finally have a food processor, and yet, when I bought a store brand one it burnt out without the first month! It was super disappointing and that is when I turned to this amazing Cuisinart PowerPrep Plus 14-Cupper and I have never looked back. I will admit it, that I don't use it every day and sometimes I don't even use it every week but when I do use it I make it worth it and I use it A LOT at once so it can definitely withstand the things you put in it for long periods of time. And it is just a relief to save myself from the hassle of doing things by hand. It is for sure a handy tool to have around the kitchen so if you're thinking about buying it... DO IT!
