My old cuisinart needs 3 new parts, so figured I would just buy a new one. I have decided on the Cuisinart elite because the base is metal, and I want a bigger size one. Here is my quandry. The 14 cup can be had for 240 $ but I could get the 16 cup at Williams Sonoma (they for some unkown reason are the only ones who sell the 16 cup) for 60 dollars more. Is is worth it? Does anyone have either of these, and do you like it or hate it?
