Rated 5 out of 5 by skagit Welcome back old friend
My first Cuisinart processor was bought in 1976! This is my third in forty years. My 1984 DCL-8 worked great except for the motor shaft cover which finally split and could not be replaced. I had just bought new blades and was looking for a machine that could use them, hence, the Pro-Classic which takes DCL-8/DCL-10 blades. The new slicing blades fit. It's got a great motor and is easy to use. Excellent chopping and slicing near perfection. I use the machine two to three times a week. The bowl is a little hard to remove (perhaps because new) and I did notice the bowl and lid are not as heavy as previous machine. Time will tell about durability of the plastic parts but the motor and blades seem as good or better than all previous Cuisinart food processors. Love the second lid! I trust this company to make a great food processor and they have never disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Consumer58 Great Food Processor!
After searching all of the available options for a seven cup food processor, I am glad that I chose this one! What makes this the best of the Cuisinart food processors is the extra lid that fits with the machine when not using the discs. The newer models do not have the extra lid-meaning that you are stuck cleaning the more complex lid each time you use the machine. If you are like most people 90% of the time you will just use the inner blade for most of your food preparation.
The Cuisinart also offers a 4mm blade that is more useful than the KitchenAid 2mm blade that comes with their 7 cup food processor. It is also important to note that you cannot buy extra attachments or blades for the KitchenAid 7 cup model. You can buy blades and or attachments for the 7 Cup Cuisinart model. I now use the food processor almost every day and consider it a wonderful help in the kitchen!

I've only had this food processor for a few weeks, but it seems to be a good one.
My last Cuisinart lasted for 30 years, so this was the replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mimsy33 Worth the price!
I have wanted a food processor for quite some time and when this one came on sale I decided now was the time to buy. I was able to use my JCP rewards, which brought the price down even more. I have only used it a couple of times but it does a great job of chopping. I thought I could drop in whole vegetables, but you have to do some chopping before putting vegetable such as onions in the processor. I like the discs that come with the processor. I think you get a lot for your money. I think Cuisinart makes a great product. My two complaints would be that you can not separate the pusher from the pusher sleeve, it is hard to clean around it. My second complaint is the yellow plastic on the blade, this makes the processor look cheap. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

I had wanted a food processor for years but was always deterred by the hefty pricetag. I finally bit the bullet and got this Cuisinart when I found it here for a great sale price. I did a lot of research before purchasing this model. Cuisinart is the gold standard when it comes to processors, so I knew that was a must. I was a bit nervous at first that the 7 cup might be a bit small, but honestly it is plenty for my 2 person household (and just the right size for my kitchen...not too big and bulky!). You can tell that the motor is strong and sturdy, and it really handles chopping quickly. Looking forward to using the slicing and grating discs more. All in all a great purchase...if you find a good sale and have been on the fence like I was for years, go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by queenlabelle BEST PURCHASE EVER!!!
I bought my Cuisinart Pro Classic 7-cup Food Processor at JC Penney's about a week before harvest time. It made quick and easy work of my cucumber and pepper relishes...usually this chore takes me all day but this time it was soooo much faster and better chopped than my little food chopper could make it....turned a 12 hr day into a 4 hr day....this machine is so user friendly, not hard at all, and the clean up is a breeze.....thanks Cuisinart!!!!
