Cuisinart DFP-14BCN 14-Cup Food Processor Review

What's nicer than a big family gathering or throwing a party for their friends? But if you don’t want to spend half of the day in the kitchen making food, you would definitely need some help with the preparation, because let’s face it: we are not all Bree Van de Kamp. That leaves us with a different task on our hands - choosing the best food processor to help us out.

 

Cuisinart DFP-14BCN 14-Cup Food ProcessorWith my background of a Quality Assurance Manager in a factory of small appliances, I can say I’ve developed somewhat of an expertise for choosing best products at a very reasonable price.

But before we go any further down that road, let me tell you what you can expect from this review:

  1. We’ll list all of the product specs
  2. We’ll go through a selection of positive and negative end user reviews – PROs and CONs
  3. I’ll give you my final rating on this product and try to figure out if it suits your needs or not

Proceed to amazon.com to compare prices and see the offer.

So, let’s begin with product specs:

  • Generous 14-cup capacity for maximum size of batches of food
  • Wide mouth of the feed tube; no pre-cutting needed
  • PowerPrep and Touchpad Dough Control and dough blade for the best dough
  • How-to video, spatula and recipe book included
  • 10-year warranty(for the motor)

Not too shabby, but let’s see how the end users have to say about this product:

The PROs:

  • Best food processor I’ve had, I couldn’t be happier with it.
  • The Cuisinart PowerPrep Plus is assists me beautifully. Large enough to handle all the food I need in one batch.
  • I started cooking practically on a daily basis after I got this Cuisinart because it’s so easy to use and even easier to clean.
  • This was my first food processor, so the video that came with it really demystified the machine and gave me great cooking tips. And I thought I didn’t have it in me to cook nice meals…
  • All the parts of this food processor fit just right in my dishwasher, so cleaning is a breeze.
  • I really do not know how I ever lasted so long without it..
  • My husband and I have one word to describe this model.. wow.. It eliminated all of my frustrations that I had with our previous food processor..
  • This is my third food processor and a wonderful accomplice in my cooking ventures.. So far the best one I’ve owned.
  • What a solid and useful appliance. I’ve had it for about 10 years, and I have no complaints so far..
  • I hesitated a bit at first because of the price, but in the end I went ahead and splurged.. Boy, am I glad I did. It doesn’t take up much space because all of the parts pack nicely into the bowl, and I can put them all into my dishwasher.
  • I especially like how the feed tub pusher inserts, and you don’t need to twist it, what a great new method.
  • Performs beautifully on large grating and chopping jobs, even on extra hard cheese and nuts..
  • I like the safety interlock feature, it really means a lot when you have a house full of children…
  • The large feeding tube is great for whole potatoes and big chunks of cheese I need to get grated. So far it worked wonders on everything from nuts, herbs, seeds, vegetables..
  • This Cuisinart is a workhorse; I use it every night of the week and it doesn’t overheat.
  • Large capacity, heavy duty blades, lots of power.. I’m a working mom so not having to make more than one batch of anything for my family really saves a lot of time.
  • It’s so easy to use, and it doesn’t move around the counter when on like my previous food processor did. It’s also very easy to store and clean. Powerful and user-friendly, everything I needed…
  • buy at amazon

Enough with all the praises, let’s see what complaints have the end users had so far:

  • All the safety features can sometimes be a drag.. You actually need to remove the feeder when you want to open the top…
  • After only a few years of use my bowl cracked and finding a replacement has been a pain in my…
  • I wish it was shipped with some kind of blade holders or a separate container just for them…
  • After already buying this model, I’ve realized it doesn’t have the 3×3 mm julienne disc that I wanted…

Review resume and Overall Quality Rating:

Cuisinart DFP-14BCN 14-Cup Food Processor reviewAfter a detailed inspection of this product and after going through virtually every piece of information available on this product, I’m ready to break it down for you.

So, this is a really big and powerful food processor, no doubt about that. It is ideal for a large household or throwing big parties, or just simple everyday food preparation.

My Quality Assurance Manager sense didn’t “tingle” at any point of time, and I really tried to find a major flaw to this product.

The only thing that caught my eye was the fact that it doesn’t come with a separate blade holder, and a company that invests so much in safety features like Cuisinart does should know better.
