I'm a baker by trade so everyone assumed I didn't want to go home at the end of the work day and bake more. Everyone except my husband. When he bought me this Artisan mixer for Christmas, I literally jumped for joy. I've made more bread in the last three months than I have in the past three years (at home, that is). I don't know how I ever lived without this product. It stays on my counter, never put away, and the color looks great in my kitchen. My husband thought of that too! This product has me experimenting with new recipes all the time because it's so flexible, easy to use and easy to clean.

I absolutely LOVE this product. I owned several Cuisinart products before recieving this food processor as a gift. Of course, it lived up to the Cuisinart reputation for quality. I've made some really stiff bread dough that would challenge my stand mixer and the food processor tackled the job with no problems what-so-ever. It makes super fast and easy work of chopping, slicing and dicing. Saves SO much time and effort. I wouldn't trade it for my own personal chef.
