Love this!!
For years I had been using an old hand-me-down food processor.... but only if it was absolutely necessary (my husband conveniently broke the lid so I had to buy a new one)..
Now I look for ways to use my Breville Sous Chef!! First thing I tried was using the adjustable slicing blade to cut celery for cornbread dressing for Thanksgiving. I was able to adjust the thickness to EXACTLY what I would have chopped it to by hand. WOW...Got a little crazy slicing celery... Had to give some away I had so much. LOL
I also have blended nuts and cookies for an allergy alternative crust for baking... Made basil salt... Makes good whipped cream too. Used the French fry cutter on a head of cabbage (made beautiful,easy to eat strips). Grated bars of Mexican hot chocolate for use in cooking and sending with my niece to college. Blended my homemade instant hot chocolate to a smooth powder consistency for easy mixing.
And the biggest accomplishment - pureed my entire batch of vodka sauce all at one time!!
Food transfer is easy since there's not a hole in bowl.. Clean up still requires hand washing so the markings don't come off the bowl, but this is nothing new. And it cleans up easily.

The Sous Chef is QUIET!! The old food processor, you had to yell to the person next to you to be heard.. The Sous Chef has this nice powerful motor that doesn't make you wish for earplugs to dampen the sound - for humans and pets. The old machine really bothered our pets in our all tile house. I can hold a normal conversation while using this.

I love my Sous Chef, but my parents say it is too heavy to move often and the bowl gasket makes it difficult to close (but you smell no onions until you open the lid!)
The box the attachments come in is wonderful - you can even store it on it's back end without things going everywhere inside.
This was my first Breville purchase and I am so pleased with how much thought and consideration of what consumers wanted that Breville's designers put into the machines, I now check this company fist when looking to buy a new kitchen appliance.

It's more money than other brands, but I believe it's been worth every extra penny. You won't be disappointed if you buy one!

I love my Breville
I had no idea. I never owned a food processor, thinking that slicing and chopping by hand was perfectly suitable - and why would I want to spend a bunch of money to simply do it faster. Wow. Was I wrong!!! I use my Breville every single day. It is EASILY the most useful item in my kitchen.

This is a great machine
I love this machine. The price is good and it does an excellent job. It takes more time to clean it than is does to process food. I would recommend the Breville over other models.

Because its Breville
William S on Dec 8, 2015
Does it have 2 work bowls (one each for wet & dry)? Is there any room in the bowls for food particles to get accumulated overtime and develop mold? Will this julienne for stir-fries? Will it dice or cube fruits & veggies?
ChtVA on Sep 9, 2014
Best Answer: There is only one work bowl for wet and dry ingredients. It only comes with the below blades:

Micro-serrated S-blade.
• Variable slicing disc.
• Reversible grater for coarse and fine grating.

Is a french fry disk available for this model?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2014
Best Answer: I read online that if you slice potatoes to the thickness desired, then remove them from the bowl and re-stack in the feed tube the other way then you will have fries, haven't tried it though.

description says LCD time but photos don't show a display. are the phototos from a prototype? or is the description wrong? or am I not seeing something?

dimensions are missing a L,W or H

weight says 7 pounds. that's about 1/3 the weight of comparable food processors. is that enough heft to keep it from bouncing around the counter? or is it supposed be 17 pounds?

most food processor buttons these days are the sealed membrane type, these look like regular buttons and hard to keep clean. are they going to get gunked up and prone to spills?
daniel bothman on Aug 31, 2014
Best Answer: For the dimensions and weight, we updated the product description with the following:

17.32” H (with bowl) x 7.7” W x 11” D

16.53 lbs.

There is no LCD screen. The image is correct. Description updated yesterday. LCD is only with the 16 cup.

There is no plastic membrane covering the buttons. There would be a protective bit of plastic covering it when its unboxed but there’s no permanent plastic membrane.

what is the difference between this model and the Breville Sous Chef 12-Cup Plus?
Jennifer W on Jan 1, 2015
Best Answer: Vertical footprint, capacity (of course), and no small-cup attachment (which comes with the 16-cup model). Otherwise, they seem pretty much the same. It really is a nice, solid unit.

I do not see this model (BFP660) on the Breville official parts website, only the larger BFP880. Can I order parts for this model (an additional bowl)?
Brian P on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: I imagine that since this food processor is so new, there aren't additional parts available just yet.

Bfp800xl vs bfp660sil comparison?
Tim G on Dec 20, 2014
Best Answer: We are not chefs so the 12 cup processor without all the other blades, etc is adequate for us. We felt that we would be getting a lot of blades we don't use. By the way many years ago we iwned a cusinart and the Breville far surpasses the Cuisinart in quietness and performance. So happy with our choice AND with the customer service we've received from Sur la Table

Why isn't there a smaller bowl 2 1/2 cup as included with the 12 cup Breville Sous Chef at Williams & Sonoma?

I have a new Breville 12 cup. How do you make julienne cuts?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2016
· Add Answer · I Have This Question Too (1)
The manual says that "The processing bowl and lid may occasionally be washed in the dishwasher (top shelf only), however washing in the dishwasher is not recommended on a regular basis, as prolonged exposure to harsh detergents, hot water and pressure will damage and
shorten the life of the plastic and the interlock components." But the Sur La Table description says "Care: Hand wipe unit clean. Removable components are dishwasher safe". Could you clarify, as I would have thought the bowl and the lid and its components would be fine in a dishwasher? If not, I may not buy the machine, as the Cuisinart is definitely ok in a dishwasher. Thanks very much!
Susan R on Jun 6, 2015
Best Answer: I hand wash the bowl and lid. My last food processor was a Kitchen Aid brand and the interlocking parts became brittle and broke after automatic dish washing in just a short time. My previous food processor was a Cuisinart, which I had for many, many years was put in the automatic dish washer but that model was made prior to many of the required safety features for today's models. If the bowl and lid of the Breville were extremely gunky, then I would put them in the automatic dishwasher. but not on a regular basis. Of the three food processors I have owned, I like this Breville the most. I is easy to operate, powerful, relatively easy to clean and functions well. I highly recommend it.

Which disc is used for julienne?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2016
Best Answer: I would assume either the coarse or fine shredder disk would work depending on how large or small you want your pieces, but I have not used my food processor to julienne anything yet.

The cord is extremely short. What is the recommendation for a cord extension?
Rachael K on Oct 1, 2015
Best Answer: The cord appears quite short when you receive the unit but if you give it a good pull, the cord extends to over 2 feet. the cord is wound up inside the base of the unit for delivery and storage.

Do the Breville Sous Chef Food Processors have a continuous feed chute, or will it only process with the feed tube in place?
Jeanne G on Nov 14, 2015
Best Answer: If you are wondering if the machine will run with the feed tube out, it will for the smallest one and a second size. There is a safety switch with the biggest one which needs to be approximately half way pushed in to set the machine on.

What are the difference in the models of Breville 16 cups vs 12 cups (Plus Version and 12 cup model ??
A shopper on Dec 22, 2015
Best Answer: Apart from the obvious difference in terms of size, I don't think there are any differences. However, the 12-cup model does not come with the smaller bowl insert and the dedicated blade for that bowl. Those parts can be ordered separately (which I did).
