Equipped with an extra-large feed tube, a small feed tube, and slicing and shredding discs, this 600-watt, 7-cup, midsize food processor provides all the power, versatility, and capacity needed by most households. Cooks experienced with Cuisinart food processors will welcome the new feed tube and pusher assembly, which are easy to use–at 4-1/4 inches by 2-3/4 inches, the large, oval feed tube accommodates whole fruits and vegetables. The small, cylindrical tube is located inside the pusher assembly and has its own hollow pusher, which removes with a twist. On the bottom of the small pusher is a pin-hole for dribbling oil into the bowl while making mayonnaise.
The Lexan work bowl is virtually shatterproof and impervious to heat or cold. There's the familiar stainless-steel chopping blade. Stainless-steel slicing and shredding discs, a plastic spatula shaped for the work bowl, a recipe booklet, and an instruction video showing basic use, tips and techniques, and preparation of some recipes from the booklet complete the package. (Existing Cusinart blades and discs also fit this machine.) Cuisinart warranties the motor against defects for 10 years and the remaining parts for three years. –Fred Brack
