So I'm finally thinking about getting a food processor, and I want to get one that will be useful and stick with me for the long haul. I'm a pretty heavy duty user of all my kitchen things (I killed my immersion blenders until I got my beloved Bamix) and I also hate cleaning.
I was looking at the Cuisinart Elite 12 cup, but then I had my heart set on the Breville because it is BPA free, has lots of handy dandy tools, and tops the Consumer Report ratings.
But...then I looked at posts from you guys about food processors (because I feel guilty about the price!) and I saw a lot of people recommending the Magimix and Robot Coupe. Robot Coupe is out of my budget but the Magimix is the same price as the Breville, so it's doable if it's a better choice.
What do you guys think?
Also do you know if the motor shaft for either of these is metal or plastic?
