Over the last few years, whenever we went to use our food processor it was difficult. I am not even sure how old that thing was, but when I convinced my mom to buy a new one we bought the Delonghi Food Processor. This food processor is amazing. The built in digital scale is very helpful allowing us to measure the ingredients while adding them into the bowl. The power of the motor is great and works so much better than our old one. The safety interlock system is also convenient if my younger sisters are around because it stops the motor if the lid or base is not properly in place. We always have consistency in the food we blend and never have to worry about random chunks ruining our mixture. Lastly, the cleaning is easy with all the dishwasher safe parts so even clean up is easy with this machine.
