  • This would be such an answer to prayer to win this! We are a family of eight and my food processor just broke two weeks ago and I haven’t been able to replace it.

  • I don’t have a food processor and I need one to make a lot of things, including hummus!

    I already subscribe to your newsletter. I love reading it!thanks!

  • I would give all but one of my sharp knives up for this! We do a lot of chopping, blending, shredding in this house and this would make our everyday lives so much easier!

  • A family of 8 as well. A 4700 square foot garden and no food processor! This would be a life-saver! I have a son with Asperger’s, a daughter with eczema and another son with obvious gut-related issues such as childhood periodic symptoms. Having a tool with this would make having healthy food for my family much less time-consuming. Also, it would be invaluable when it comes to canning this fall.

  • I have two kiddos in cloth diapers right now so making a big batch of laundry soap happens often – being able to use this food processor to chop up the bar soap would make life SO much easier πŸ™‚

  • There are many things that I wish I had a Cusinart for, sometimes even our vitamin blender does cut it! I love grating cheese with cusinarts and my girlfriend grates frozen butter for making biscuits with it!

  • Perfect timing! I just told DH yesterday we need a new one soon, I killed mine last year shredding cabbage for sauerkraut!

  • This would be fantastic! I have 6 kids and we have to eat gluten free. I could use this for so many things: coconut milk, almond milk, sauerkraut, etc. I would probably use it every day.

  • So many times I find myself scrambling to use up fresh fruit and produce before it goes bad. This means lots of muffins and breads! BUT it would be so much more economical and less wasteful to puree leftover fruits and freeze them or make fresh herbed butters with leftover herbs or make sauces with pureed veggies. I also cook gluten free, and one of my favorite tips is to buy the gluten free rice crispies and crush them to use in place of bread crumbs. Works sooo well!!!

  • Prepping time would be greatly cut down with the food processor. This helps me get healthy food on the table quicker after a long day at the office.

  • I love to use my food processor for just about anything possible, but especially for making fruit and nut bars (like Lara Bars), sauerkraut, salsa and cole slaw. But sadly, mine broke a few months ago and I am now using an old mini chopper until the budget allows for a new food processor. πŸ™ This summer I intend to experiment with all sorts of other cultured veggies as well.

  • I am currently stocking my first real food kitchen. I move in this Friday and I could not be more excited. A food processor is definitely on my list, and as a college student on a budget, it would surely be nice to win one!

  • I am trying to get healthier. I have cut out most processed foods, breads etc. and I eat a huge salad every day practically. I also am learning to increase my veggie intake. I have found I love raw beets and now I eat broccoli which I never did before! This would be a fabulous win!

  • My food processor finally crapped out just the other day!! I use it literally every day for food, but also for the herbal medicine and body care products that I make for the business I just started (Bunsy Botanikos) <3

  • I love to make slasa and pestos but it’s so hard to do in the blender, this would help out so much!!

  • I have a smaller processor that I use for absolutely everything! From making “ice cream” for the kids to making dough. A larger more powerful model would save me so much time and make life so much easier.

  • One word; hummus. I love that stuff and I am certain that it’s good for me. I am sure that it would be better if I could make it myself.

  • it would help b/c I see recipes I wnt to cook but they call for a food processor & I don’t have one so I don’t bother.

  • My current food processor is only 3 cups, and with a family of 4 it takes a long time to make a big batch of anything! This would be great for our family!

  • I have been rigging my current food processor as it is on its last leg and I use it daily! A new one would just rock my world! Oh and I’m already signed up for the newsletter. Love all the info!

  • My mom has been making her own saeurkraut as her probiotic supplement. Would love to try making my own too, and this would come in handy. Thanks for the giveaway and the opportunity to try this product.

  • I am 62 and have never owned a food processor. Yep a mom of 3 and a grandma of 13 who has never owned a food processor. I think I am a late bloomer cause for the last year I have been collecting nothing but healthy recipes off blogs, Pinterest, and many many free Kindle cookbooks. Now I NEED a food processor to make all these fabulous healthy recipes. I am going to follow you and learn as much as possible from this blog too. This would kick my cooking into high gear. Thanks

  • This would make it so much easier to chop vegetables, and I would definitely be making some home made coconut butter

  • have been eying one for a while now….thank you for hosting this lovely giveaway! in all likelihood, i’ll be using the food processor for all of my prep work/ chopping veges, for making dough et al….what fun!

  • This would help my girlfriend spend much less time in the kitchen when she wants to make her vegetable dishes! πŸ™‚

  • I haven’t had a food processor for something like 25 years (!), and I think it’s time I replaced that long-ago much-loved machine. It would make my life in the kitchen easier by speeding up prep time (shredding and chopping). I could make pesto and hummus. I could make herb salts, and bread crumbs, and oat flour. Heck, I could make bread dough and pie crust, which the modern machines are supposed to be able to do.

  • Hi, I am new to this site. Looking forward to exploring it and discovering in what ways I can use a food processor.

  • I’ve been wanting one of these a long time, its just not been essential thing so I haven’t been able to do it quite yet. I would love to be able to win. The cuisinart food processor is the one thing that makes me think of my mom’s kitchen. It is and always has been a necessity in her kitchen, and it makes me happy thinking about it and her.
    The cuisinart would make life for me so much easier when I do my mid week batch cooking πŸ™‚

  • What a timesaver! No more standing over the cutting board for hours. The list of uses is endless. This would help me prepare healthier meals that I would otherwise put off because of the time involved. Thank-you for this generous offer!

  • It would make things simpler by allowing me to make more than one smoothie serving at a time!

  • I would use it for so many things including hummus, pestos, dips, salsas, and the list goes on! Thanks! Just signed up for your newsletter too.

  • I would use this for so many things: salsa, nut butters, dips, frozen fruit treats, making bread crumbs & graham cracker crumb pie crusts. This is a wonderful prize.

  • I’d use it to make baby food. I have a 5 month old who will be ready to start solids in the next few months. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • This food processor would be so great! I have the bullet and it’s a bit small…this would really help me out. And it’s dishwasher safe!

  • I’ve burned out two cheap food processors, making almond butter and yummy black bean hummus. Love the newsletter! I always read it to find more info for my son with tons of allergies. Thanks so much!

  • With 10 people to feed, anytime I can have help blending, slicing, and chopping, it cuts time off of meal preparation. This would be wonderful!

  • I would love a better way to grind up flour and nuts, this looks like it would do the trick! The bread dough feature sounds awesome as well.

  • I would love this to make larger batches of food to freeze and serve later. Also, I would use it to make health and beauty products instead of buying them

  • This would be great…and I’d love it for pureeing soups! And preparing veggies for various dishes! And pretty much everything!

  • The large feeding tube is great. I wouldn’t have to stop to cut veggies small enough to fit. It makes the veggies prettier, especially for making chips.

  • I would love to be the winner of this food processor since I don’t have one. It will help a lot
    to start living a healthier lifestyle.

  • Having this food processor would make my kitchen life so much easier. While chopping veggies with sharp quality knives is sometimes fun and therapeutic- there are times when it can be more of a burden- and having this food processor would make such an easier time at preparing foods from scratch and eating healthier. Thanks for the chance at winning this beautiful machine πŸ™‚

  • I have a family day care, and am always wishing for one of these. Having never had one, not sure what I will do, but it keeps sounding like a good idea.

  • What an awesome gift this 7 cup food processor would be! It would mean only having to process in 1 batch rather than multiple batches with my tiny processor – not just convenient and time saving for me but less distress for my 8 month old son who hates the noise πŸ˜‰

  • I make just about everything from scratch and my current food processor is on its last leg. This would really come in handy!

  • I’ve never had or used a food processor before. I do all the chopping myself. Having one of these would be awesome!!!

  • It would make my life immensely easier in the kitchen! I feel like countless recipes have instructions in them that include using a food processor so I just have to skip over them or try and make do without one!

  • I love to cook, but my favorite part ISN’T the prep! Now that my resident sous chef has gone off to college, I’d love to fly through those steps and get right to the fun stuff. πŸ™‚

  • I grow a small garden and I cook literally every meal at home and am still doing all my chopping with a knife. I also love to bake and make pasta etc. and do it all the old fashioned way and it’s getting too hard to do because of arthritis and just getting weaker as I get older. Would love to have this to do the work for me.

  • i can’t name just one! i have had processors but given them to other family members who really needed them more. this one i will keep!

  • My food processor died this winter, I have been desperately seeking a new one! This is an awesome giveaway!! Thanks.

  • I would love to have this food processor!! I am recently diagnosed with near 2o something allergies between me and all my kids. So, as we struggle to ditch the junk food, eating out and poisonous ingredients, a food processor would be like having a magic wand in the kitchen!!!!! I would use it to make raw brownies, chop and slice veggies and fruits and make dough…gluten free, of course. I am going to be in the kitchen for hours and this would make my time there well spent!! I really APPRECIATE YOU giving away such a nice gift!! Much love from the Nichols family!!

  • Mine died and I used it all the time. Although mine wasn’t this nice! I cook everything from scratch and also make fermented veggies. This is a MUST for me for the veggie prep!

  • I can’t even begin to explain the many ways it would help us in the kitchen but the first thought is how yummy my paleo strawberry lemonade would be if it was chunky from my not-so-good blender I use instead of an amazing food processor! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • RIght now I only have a 3 cup processor and it is too small! A bigger size can mix ALL the batter for a full batch of black bean brownies at once. It would also be nice to chop all the veggies for a pot of soup at once. My sister in law has a big size like this and she uses the slicer blade for raw peppers (red, yellow, green, orange) for the kids to munch on.)

  • I could use this for so many yummy and healthy recipes! I don’t have a food processor. I would love one to add convenience to my cooking time and save money making nut butters! Thanks for all you do for us that follow your blog about healthy foods!

  • Well I don’t have a food processor, but have been saving for one. I would love it for chopping nuts and making my own almond milk. Also to make my own mayo! I would be one grateful lady if I won! πŸ™‚

  • This would be wonderful! because of food allergies i have to make everything from scratch. This wouldbe a huge asset in my kitchen!

  • Mommy of three here! A food processor would be useful for making smoothies, HM mayo, HM ketchup, making your own nut butters, and making lots of RAW desserts. Awesome giveaway!

  • This would be a great for making my son his puree’s and apple sauces, along with making up some fresh yummy smoothies!!!!

  • I am busy in the kitchen chopping and prepping food ALL THE TIME! I had a food processor/blender combo that burnt out – we replaced it with a vita mix……I still need a food processor! Looks great with lots of good reviews. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  • My sister-in-law is expecting her first baby and has recently gotten into and been wanting to learn more about real foods and healthy eating. She wants to make her own baby food so I would love to win this for her since it makes prep time and homemade cooking so much easier!!

  • I would love this food processors for making grain free granola bars, grating vegetables and soooo many other things. I’ve heard really good reviews from many people who personally own this food processor and love it!

  • I don’t have a food processor and I have started cooking with more natural ingredients and fresh vegetables and this would save me a lot of time!

  • I would love this for just about everything in the kitchen. I have a small one that is on it’s last leg that I use a lot. Because it’s so small, I have to do things in many batches so a bigger one would be wonderful.

  • I would love to be able to make smooth nut butters, coconut butter, and mayonnaise! Mine is very, very old and not powerful enough to make them properly.

  • I would use the food processor to chop all my veggies for cooking ! I would also use it for my baking and making of my flax/coconut breads & cookies !

  • I would certainly be able to prepare more stuff in the kitchen! Many things I’ve shied away from because I don’t have a food processor!

  • I would love to win this Cuisinart Food processor! It would help a ton with processing big heads of cauliflower to use as a replacement for rice in some of my favorite dishes =)

  • I would use it to make lots of home made items like macademia nut butter, hummus, sauces etc. that I know all the “real” ingredients.

  • How can anyone live without a food processor? I have to say I have gone through a couple but they are my work horse.

  • There’s too many ways this would be useful, seeing as I prepare everything from scratch, about the only thing I’m not doing now is farming the food! It would be especially useful if it can break down meat. πŸ™‚

  • A food processor would make such lovely mixes of jam, lovely even slices for dehydrating and just fun to work with, which actually would be playing with a new toy. Hope to win.

  • I’d love to win this. My food processor is a 30 year old hand me down, one speed, and who knows what the container is made of!

  • I have added more veggies to my diet – this would be handy for a quick chop πŸ˜‰ I’d also like to make my own nut butters.

  • I use my food processor for everything, but it’s pretty worn out. It needs to be replaced badly! I don’t know what I would do without it in my kitchen!

  • I love playing with dehydrator recipes, and the Cuisinart would make things like fruit leather so much easier! Also, I’m just noticing how many recipes call for a food processor or a stand mixer, and I have neither!

  • Wow! My food processor was given to me by a friend 5 years ago. Then, about 3 years ago, it broke down on me & stopped working completely:(
    I would love to get another food processor for my kitchen.

  • I would use it to make nut butters which would be fresher and more affordable.
    I signed up for the newsletter as well.

  • I would love to have this so that I can make my meals quicker. I really want to try to make my own chicken nuggets I found a recipe that incorporates liver and bacon in it and is grain free my daughter has celiacs and I work full time and am going to school to be a massage therapist so anything that saves me time is definitely helps me out πŸ™‚

  • It would be easier for me to chop vegetables and fruit because I have MS and sometimes my fingers go partly numb and I can’t feel where the knife is. This would help as I wouldn’t have to use a knife then to chop up food.

  • The food processor I have now is about worn out. I do everything in my processor from nut butters to jellies to smoothies. You name it, I do it.

  • As the mom of a large family – hubby and 10 kiddos – this would definitely make things run a little smoother when it comes to meals in our family. Less hand chopping and dicing!

  • I cook a lot from scratch due to allergies in the family. This would make life a lot easier when cooking things in bulk.

  • I really need this so much! I am tired of wasting so much money when I can’t afford anything anymore. With the food processor I will be able to actually make my own food at home, and it will be easily digestible for me.

  • Hey. I’m really a newby to cooking ( recently retired ) been bored to death for the past year no hobby. My mother suggested that I try baking and wam,bam not bored no more Yeah! Now as to a tip. This would be great for all those fine toppings on cakes,pies and other deserts

  • this would be something we could really use! we are a very low income family and don’t have anything in our kitchen yet (just one pot and a couple wooden spoons!) and cooking is very tough that way!

  • My food processor was having problems the other day and my son asked how long I’ve had it. I realized it is more than 30 years old. Well, I guess I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of it.

  • I am so tired of having bruised knuckles from using a grate to shred cabbage or potatoes for various dishes. The shredding feature of the Cuisinart Pro Series 7-cup food processor would get the work done without the need for bandages.

  • I am so excited about this food processor give away. Learning to cook better for healing my AI is quite a journey and I know the food processor will help over all!

  • Making my home made slaw would be SO much easier! We eat a LOT of fresh, farmed, organic veggies and this would make so much easier! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Oh, this would be such an amazing thing in my household – my son has numerous allergies, so I make EVERYTHING from scratch. I’m imagining the dairy-free ice creams & sorbets I could make him; how quickly I could chop veggies; and how it would whisk together dough in a flash!

  • I have a VERY OLD (1974) La Machine. I’m concerned about the BPA that was used way back then and would love to replace it with a new one. We have a special needs grandson who lives with us and this would be a blessing to us. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • I do a lot of whole food cooking and currently don’t have a food processor at all. This would be such a time saver for me to have and extremely helpful. I can only imagine the things I could crank out with this πŸ˜‰ I am planning on doing a bunch of canning this year too and this would be another added utensil for prepping all my recipes. πŸ™‚

  • Would love to win this! It would help me save time and money in the kitchen. Planted a garden to save on food bills and this would help me prepare fresh veggies!

  • As I’ve transitioned to “real” foods & clean eating, I rely on gadgets like a food processor a lot more. The problem is that I’m still using the same one I got for my wedding 30 years ago, & needless to say it’s on its last leg! I was just toying with the idea of getting rid of it, but decided not to, since a new one is not in the budget right now (2 kids in college & a daughter getting married in 6 months). So I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed!!!

  • I would love to have a food processor. I just haven’t been able to afford one yet. It would make cooking even better. It has so many uses.

  • I don’t own one, but everything I see online, or on the Chew, it sounds like, if I want to get more adventurous with cooking, it is a necessity.

  • My food processor bowl just got melted in the dishwasher (I know, I know). I use it for whipped cauliflower, cole slaw, pork rind flour, tomato sauce, making chopped salad, and OH-everything!!! I don’t own any fancy Cuisinart appliances, but, I am so sure I can find a million other things to make with it.

  • I would love this for hummus, “ice cream”, nut/seed butters, and more. It has also been on the list of kitchen gadgets we would love.

  • This would be so amazing to win! It would make life so much easier and I would probably use it at every meal!

  • I would love to be able to chop raw veggies for use in salads and recipes without having to change the tiny food chopper basket multiple times. Love me some coleslaw!

  • I want one to make bread and pasta dough and sauces and nut fillings for the breads and pastas. I have arthritis and don’t do much baking anymore because it’s harder than it used to be. I used to use mainly elbow grease to do everything. Also would use it to grind up fish and scraps to put on the compost to speed and beef it up. I’ve always been one to avoid grocery store processed foods. Also want to experiment making fruit and vegetable leathers and see what combinations taste good.
