Pro Comes with an extensive range of additional accessories
The Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup is equipped with an assortment of accessories, including a standard stainless steel slicing disc (4mm), a medium shredding disc, a stainless steel chopping/mixing blade, a plastic dough blade, a detachable disc, a spatula, a "How-to" Video, and an instruction/recipe book.
Pro Large bowl capacity
The bowl of the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup is 7 inches in diameter and 6 inches high. Its large capacity makes preparing several batches of fresh soup, hummus, salsa, pesto, dough (for multiple loaves of bread), and even dog food an absolute breeze. This ultimately means that you can get all of your food prep done in one go.
The parts of this machine that come into contact with food are BPA-free. BPA (bisphenol A) is a chemical found in certain plastics, especially that used for storing food and drink. Some research has found that BPA can seep into food and result in certain damaging effects on our health.
Pro Can accommodate large batches of food
This food processor features a wide feed tube that can intake foods whole, namely cheese, fruit, and vegetables, potatoes included. This saves the user from having to perform the laborious task of chopping prior to processing, ultimately speeding up his/her food prep time.
Con Processing of certain foods can scratch/cloud bowl
The bowl of the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup can become easily scratched by the processing of hard food stuffs such as ice or whole spices. On a similar note, extended use of certain oils (e.g. wintergreen oil) can cause the bowl to appear somewhat cloudy.
Con Can be tricky to put back together if disassembled
The Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup is a very solid construction and if you take the machine apart, you may be caught with the difficulty of putting it back together. This is namely due to the safety mechanism it comprises which must be latched properly in order for the appliance to function at all.
