My food processor has been extremely moody lately. Once or twice it failed to turn on. I have the Krups and I never really liked it. It is too small for my needs, and I do not like the consistency it produces. I'd like something that produces a smoother consistency. Can anyone tell me their experiences with food processors? I am leaning toward the Cuisinart 14 cup models, but would consider the Kitchen Aid as well. My sister loves her Bosche, but it seems the one that has recently been discontinued did not get the best reviews. I'd love to hear of cheaper options if the machines are good. Any advice or experience you can share with me? Help! Thanx!
