Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The blades sit quite close to the bottom of the bowl, which adds to its processing efficiency, particularly when incorporating dough or sauce ingredients.
This model performed very good in our slicing tests of celery and mushrooms.
It scored above average in every single one of our rating metrics, doing a particularly good job at pureeing and slicing.
Its simple, pared-down design makes it easier to use and clean than models with more settings or multiple bowls, and we found it to be built more solidly than other processors at this price range.
Enormous food chute. Comes with a variety of user-friendly blades and accessories.

What reviewers didn't like

The only issues we found with uniformity were that the occasional slice of mushroom or potato was slightly thinner than the rest of the processed results.
More complicated to assemble discs than others
It would shoot flour out while mixing, failing to incorporate it and making dough that was a little less consistent than the KitchenAid models.
The Cuisinart Custom’s three-year limited warranty (five years on the motor) isn’t the best among the models we tested but is still pretty good.
Heavier than cheaper models, but for most consumers, it still fits on the counter top.
