Largest, affordable food processor

Hopefully I'm not asking the impossible here, but I was wondering if anybody was familiar with a large (bigger than 12 cup) food processor for around $100? It seems like food processors are getting smaller -- the last time I bought one, several companies were offering 16-cup models in the $100-$200 range. However, the largest I am seeing right now that doesn't cost above $200 is 11 or 12 cups.

I am looking for a replacement for my 16 cup GE (Wal-Mart) food processor that was recalled for problems with the lid latch mechanism. It was only $50 brand new (1 year ago), and had enough power to handle pasta and other doughs, as well as all the chopping I wanted to do.

I bought a 11-cup Cuisinart for $95 on sale, but it seems like I'm getting a weaker, smaller machine for less money.

I'd like to have a larger bowl because I tend to use it to smooth out sauces for curries and other Indian foods for large family gatherings, and the liquid level on the 11-cup Cuisinart is really low.

Any ideas from the chow braintrust?
