The Cuisinart 8-Cup Food Processor is designed to make food prep fast and simple. It's big enough to chop ingredients for a party-sized portion of salsa and powerful enough to turn a full bowl of veggies into healthy pureed soups in seconds. Rubberized touch-pad controls make this food processor easy to use. The reversible shredding and slicing discs allow for a wide variety of cooking prep work. This food processor can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
