The Cuisinart Elite Collection FP-14DC 14-Cup Food Processor delivers the next big innovation for the modern kitchen. The food processor is equipped with a 1000-watt powerful induction motor which quickly and easily slices, dices, chops and purees. This unit includes a 4-1/2 cup small work bowl and 11-cup medium bowl that can easily nest inside a 14-cup large work bowl, made of polycarbonate construction, a versatile three in one design that can handle multiple size batches. The SealTight Advantage System seals the bowls and locks the blades, delivering maximum bowl capacity without any spills or leaks. The unit’s wide-mouth feed tube accommodates large ingredients thus saving a lot of pre-cutting time.

An electronic touchpad control panel offers four selections for on, off, dough and pulse surrounding blue LED light. This unit comes with sharp and durable reversible shredding disc and adjustable slicing disc (8 different options with 2 discs), a dough blade, and a versatile chopping/mixing blade for unlimited option of processing. The convenient storage case with safety lock holds all the blades and discs. The retractable cord system allows using as much cord as needed and then storing it back in the housing. All the parts except the housing base are dishwasher safe for easy and quick clean-up. The housing base can be wiped clean with a towel for that extra shine and professional looking unit.

Some reviewers were not very happy with the unit when it came to handling liquids or large amount of dough as they get stuck in the angels of the bowl, which leads to difficulty in cleaning. 

Overall, the Cuisinart Elite Collection 14-Cup Food Processor (FP-14DC) is easy to use and comes with loads of features and options. This machine can quickly blend up individual or family sized batches. This highly recommended processor includes a spatula, how to DVD and a recipe / instruction book, backed by 3 years limited warranty and 10 years motor warranty.

Dishwasher safe bowls Stainless steel base with no leakage Locking or adjustable blade design Many referred cleaning to be tough The large cutting blade leaves large pieces when chopping as there's too much space between the blade and the bowl
