Pros: Strong motor
Cons: Difficult to store, to small of a feed tube.
Not sure what happened to the quality of Cuisinart but I am not at all with how this peace of kitchen equipment. About three months after buying this processor I was making salsa and using the pulse feature when all of a sudden the cutting blade exploded and destroyed the cup and some how managed to walk away without a scratch, lucky I guess. Cuisinart sent me all the replacement parts, but the thing still scares me.
