Pros & Cons
One of the main problems with this appliance is the size – it is really large. It might not be the best choice for someone with a small counter space. Of course, since you can get rid of other small appliances, like the bread maker, it still might work for you.
The best thing about this Cuisinart food processor is that it is so versatile that it really eliminates the need for a lot of other appliances. You can use it to make a salsa as well as some pizza dough. Also, having three work bowls is great because it means that you do not have to stop and clean a bowl when you need to use the unit for more than one thing per meal.
