14-cups is big. Actually, barring commercial food processors, this is one of the largest ones I’ve seen. Bowl size, while important, isn’t the only important factor when considering a new food processor. There are some other very important features to look at, like; power, convenience, and warranty.
When an appliance is a pain in the neck to operate it sits in your cabinet collecting dust. For example, we purchased an old ice cream maker at a garage sale a couple of years ago. It works beautifully, in fact, the previous owners said they only used it a couple of times (I wonder why…). The problem is that there is a lot work involved in using it. It’s cool and nostalgic, but it’s also time consuming.

The Cuisinart FP-14DCN has several convenient features. While you probably wouldn’t consider the powerful 1300-watt motor to be a convenience feature, it is. This allows you to quickly chop through foods without worrying about the blades getting stuck.
Another convenient feature is the extra wide feed chute. This prevents you from having to chop food into smaller pieces first. The detachable parts are dishwasher safe, which makes cleanup a breeze. There is also a smaller 4-cup work bowl included. This is perfect if you don’t want to have to whip out the extra-large work bowl.
To protect you from an unplanned demise of your Cuisinart food processor, you have a very generous warranty. The motor is protected for 10 years, while the rest is covered for 3 years.
