Pros: Heavy suction, 2 lids for different processing, quick and easy preparation. Many attachments
Cons: would benefit with organizing rack for blades and acessories-feeding tube/ hard to clean
I have been in search of a Cuisinart ever since I was introduced to my mothers way back in the early 1970s'-Moving into to
my first apartment, I inherited her first food processor which was an old Sunbeam. Talk about an Edsol-I have had that machine for at least 20 years and although it was cumbersome and difficult to manage, it did however do the trick. For years I have been determined to find a Cuisinart that I could afford and because there were so many models available I took it upon myself to speak to as many friends as I have that cook to give me their opinions of what worked and what did not. Many of the bowls are very, very large...others are way too small. You have to determine how much you will use the machine and for what kind of quantities....but after a long search and clever timing I was able to find this model, new and never used on Ebay. The beauty of this was that there were so many Cuisinarts up for bid, new used and some so ready for the appliance haven in the sky, but because there was so much interest in the new models, I was able to get an all white machine, DLC-8S including white pulse switches for $45.00 plus shipping-Which I believe cost me $25.00 extra dollars. I feel like I received the deal of the century-After working on such awful machine for so long gave me the appreciation for an incredible machine with great tork-efficient, clean and powerful.
