Advantages of the Cuisinart DFP-14BCNY
In conducting this Cuisinart DFP-14BCNY 14-Cup Food Processor review, we noted that this model offers seven options in total: it can knead, mix dough, slice, chop, puree, shred, and emulsify. This is done via sleek touch buttons. There are also “On” and “Off/Pulse” buttons. All of this is at an affordable price; The DFP-14BCNY is in the mid-price range of the best food processors.

Special Features: A Big Capacity Food Processor
Cuisinart includes a Lexan 14-cup bowl with this machine. It is amongst the biggest of the best food processors we’ve reviewed; it is as large as the Breville BFP800BSXL and comes with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty (the Breville model’s warranty is only one year).
The large bowl enables you to work with big food quantities, thus saving you time and energy. Combine this with its extra-wide feed tube and several blades and this machine can handle a wide range of foods. The wider feeding tube saves your having to cut down larger foods like zucchinis as much before putting them into the Cuisinart DFP-14BCNY, especially with the big pusher.
Best Food Processors: Are There Any Drawbacks?
Even the best food processors can have some minor flaws. In writing our Cuisinart DFP-14BCNY 14-Cup Food Processor review, we noted there is no juicer attachment, unlike the Braun FP3020 Food Processor. Then again, the Cuisinart model has a larger bowl (14 cups rather than 12) than the Braun machine.
The brushed stainless steel DFP-14BCNY is on the heavier side too. At 18 pounds it is not the easiest to lift out of the cupboard or transport elsewhere. But, if you’re not planning to move the appliance much then this is a non-issue. Lastly, we think the manufacturer should include a storage case for the blades in the future for ease of organization (no such container currently comes with the machine).
Who is the Ideal User?
This Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor will appeal to someone looking for a big-capacity appliance that can handle whole foods with ease. If little food prep is desirable, then this appliance will be right up your alley. It saves time and effort in preparation.
Also, the brushed stainless steel look is very modern and fits well within a range of kitchen color schemes. But if you like a bold color for your appliances, then this look may not be for you. Then again, knowing your appliance comes from a company with a great customer service reputation like Cuisinart might be more valuable to you.
The kitchen appliance will appeal to a person who values safety too. If the DFP-14BCNY machine is not put together properly, then it will not start when you press the “On” button. This is true even if a part is 1mm out of place.
Summary of the Cuisinart DFP-14BCNY 14-Cup Food Processor Review
We put Cuisinart’s DFP-14BCNY 14-Cup model in brushed stainless steel among our list of the best food processors. It has a big-capacity bowl and extra-wide feeding tube, which significantly reduces food prep time. Although it is heavier than some models, it is also less expensive than some food processors.

The seven prep options and great appliance design enable you to work with a range of foods daily in the kitchen. Afterwards, just put the parts in the dishwasher to clean them. Plus, the 14-cup appliance is affordable. With all of this considered, we recommend the brushed stainless steel Cuisinart DFP-14BCNY to meet the food processing requirements of many kitchens.
