Very impressed with the new Breville Sous Chef.
As a chef, I demand good tools and equipment. I've been wanting a new food processor with greater capacity and power for some time. After trying out another brand unsuccessfully (and returning it), I saw this new model in the SLT catalog and was excited. So far, I'm really impressed with the Breville Sous Chef. Love the big capacity and the powerful motor. Grated giant hunks of Parmesan cheese in a few seconds, pureed marinara in a few pulses, thinly sliced pounds of mushroom so fast. Smart design on the accessories. Really wide feed tube holds a lot of ingredient. Have used the shredding blade, adjustable slicing blade, steel knife. Neat design on the slicing blade with 24 settings on just one blade. The steel knife (s blade) is razor sharp. Nice having measurements on the outside of the workbowl. So far, so good! Looking forward to trying out new capabilities I don't have with my old model (now relegated to a back cupboard). There's a lot to love about this food processor.

Nice job Breville. Very well thought out and designed

This is the BEST food processor I have ever used!
The Breville Sous Chef is the best food processor I have ever used. I have had it for a month and have used it every day with great success. Not only is the design gorgeous, but the functionality has been well thought out and tested. It has a powerful motor, large capacity bowl with measurements, excellent pulse feature and amazing timer function.

But what sets this machine apart is the extra wide feeding chute, the small and large pushers, the adjustable slicing blade with 24 settings, and the emulsifying disc. All of these features give you great control, making this machine extremely versatile.

I make a lot of raw vegan food, and I have been giving this machine a work out! It is fantastic for uniformly grinding and chopping fresh herbs, raw nuts and seeds and dried fruit. This machine makes great fresh nut and seed butters, dips and spreads. But the real test was the thick sticky stuff like raw balls, raw crusts, and raw cookies. Amazing! I also made conventional gluten free cakes and cookies with tremendous results too. I made some gluten free breads with the dough kneader and it worked out a treat!

But the adjustable slicing disc has become my new best friend. You can slice super thin pieces up to thick cuts. I couldn�t believe how well the slicing and shredding disc sliced tomatoes! It also makes really uniform shredded pieces for salads. The julienne disc offers incredible control over sizing - you can make really long pieces by laying the vegetables horizontally in the wide feeding chute! The emulsifying disc is really amazing too. I have made delicious mayonnaise, fresh fruit sorbet, and ice cream.

I cannot rave enough about this machine. It is absolutely fantastic

"Rock-solid food processor, but..."
I bought the Breville Sous Chef food processor in Sept. 2011 when it first came out and there were no reviews on it. I saw the YouTube videos by the designer of the unit. I was about to buy the Magimix 16-cup food processor from Williams-Sonoma, but I bought the Breville because of Sur La Table's fantastic return policy.

I've used the unit a few times a week since purchase. It is rock-solid quality. You couldn't ask for better.

Likes: 16-c bowl that doesn't leak (there is a thin rubber gasket on the cover. No nooks or crannies where the food can hide like with the Cuisinart Elite Die Cast (I bought that and returned it for that reason). The Breville has lots of power. I've used the S-blade, grating disk, and French fry disk. All worked fine except I found I hadn't followed the directions on how to cut a potato before putting it in the food tube, so I got uneven-shaped fries.

Dislikes: The workbowl has a lot of grooves, ledges, and areas that aren't nice to a sponge (I don't use a dishwasher) when cleaning the unit. I have looked at so many brands, and this one has the most of any of them. There are also a lot of grooves on the center stem of the 16-c bowl. Perhaps it is to hold the stems in place, but there is also a small metal groove on the inside work cover the stem fits in, so the blade isn't going anywhere. I find this grooved stem more effortful to clean than necessary. I don't understand why the work bowl handle is hollow w/small holes that the water gets into when cleaning the bowl. I find I have to leave the bowl unassembled on the counter for several hours to dry (maybe not necessary, but this unit isn't cheap, and I don't want to unwittingly damage it). You have to turn on the unit with a power button, then press another button to activate the unit. It's like the engineers want to protect me from myself. I find this annoying. I find myself wanting a second mid-size bowl like with the Magimix. The Breville is very heavy. It's not a problem for me, but it is something to keep in mind if you aren't in shape. I was disappointed that the s-blade is a single instead of the double that I saw on the video. That was an ingenious design. I called Breville and was told that it's available on only the 220 v unit because of the extra power that unit comes with. Pity. I don't like the pouring spout on the 15-c work bowl. I find that the contents often spill out when I'm pouring. I also don't like the measurement markings on the 16-c work bowl.

I'm not convinced I'm keeping this unit. I plan on getting the Magimix and doing a test on that. It could be the Breville is the best, but I won't know until I try both. If Breville designed out all of those weird grooves and ledges, and nooks and crannies and added a second large work bowl (maybe as accessory for those willing to pay for it?), this would be the perfect food processor at any price for the home. They are a great company, and they put a lot of thought in the design of their products. This food processor is maybe a little over-designed for my tastes (yes I am picky). Do watch the YouTube videos by the designer. He's funny and informative

I think my Sous Chef is outstanding
This food processor does the work so I can play. I have made sweet potato fries with this processor and they came out great. I had other food processors that I returned because they could not handle the task of cutting sweet potato french fries. The Breville processor cuts them like they are butter with its 1200 watt motor and razor sharp blades.

The discs that come with this food processor are all I could ask for. I love the fact that the slicing blade can adjust from practically paper thin thin to about a 1/2 inch. The slicing blade cuts foods evenly. The french fry blade cuts them so they are all the same thickness. I also have used the french fry blade to to dice onions perfectly. The S blade chops great.

The mouth of the food processor is big enough to fit whole fruits and vegetables into it.

An engineer that also cooks was visiting and looked at the design of the machine and its accessories was very impressed with its quality.

I love the fact that bowl has a 12 cup liquid capacity. The design is well thought out. I have not used the small bowl yet.

The fact that their is a case to hold all of the accessories is a bonus. It is more likely to be used often if everything is in one place and easy to access. Everything is clearly labeled so you know what is used for.

The quality appears excellent and I expect to be using this on almost a daily basis for years to come. The replacement warranty is 1 year. However, the motor warranty is 25 years.

The initial cost is not cheap. But when you figure anything you could possibly need is included in the purchase price it is a reasonable price for the product. Other food processor companies get you with the additional cost of the accessories which are very pricey. I would highly recommend the Breville Sous Chef food processor over other processors.

I have had the pleasure to deal with Sur La Tables' customer service and they are a great store to work with. Sur La Table is like a candy shop to me

Durable high quality assistant in the kitchen
I have been in the food service industry for over 25 years. In my restaurant as well as others in which I have worked I have had the opportunity to use some serious kitchen equipment. The Breville Sous Chef is one of them. When cooking at home I want to have fun, no suffering allowed... consequently my equipment has to be able to ""work"", and work it does. I absolutly love the high power, solid induction motor. I like simple, on/off, start, pulse. No shimmy shaking or bouncing around. Maybe its a guy thing, but 1200 watts and a 25 year induction motor warranty is near unheard of. I have had the Sous Chef for nearly a year now, and as you probably can imagine, I put this machine through its paces on a regular basis... It is working as well as the day I got it. The high capacity, sealed bowl does not leak; the wide mouth processing chute makes food prep a breeze; the well designed accessory case makes it easy to stay organized. Of course everything is not perfect. The small bowl blade came apart while processing spices... I called Breville USA and they had the replacement to me in record time... Ok so perfect anyway. Its great to have the best assistant around helping you in the kitchen

"""BEST"" full-size food processor on the market!"
I researched Cuisinart, KitchenAid and Breville and where I would buy, William Sonoma or Sur la Table.

Picked Breville and I'm extremely happy with my purchase from this weekend at Sur la Table, 3rd Street & Wilshire location.

Breville offers a 1200 watt motor, BPA free plastic, 16 cup capacity and a 25 year motor warranty.

I love SLT's return policy...they stand behind what they sell.

Both Breville and SLT had exactly what I was looking for including great sales people...Jorge and Michelle!

Jorge and Michelle are incredibly nice and very knowledgeable about all the products they carry in the store.

With Michelle's help, I chose the Breville Sous Chef Food Processor over Cuisinart's Elite Collection 14 cup model as the better machine.

If you're looking for a great food processor worth the money...go to SLT and buy Breville

Incredible BEAUTIFUL Beast of a machine!!!
I am SO in love with this thing! My husband bought me a Cuisinart Food Processor for Christmas two years ago.. I thought I loved it because I had never had one before. It did a fine job but had a lot of down-falls. It was harder to clean, I always seemed to overfill it, you couldn't put the blade in AFTER you put the food in, the blade always had to go in first (doesn't sound like a big deal but it was a pain).. It was noisy etc. but all of that was fine until the motor just STOPPED working one day! I had only had it just over a year at that point and only used it maybe once a month or a little more for holidays. Fortunately Sur La Table made good on it and allowed me to return it.
My husband convinced me to upgrade to the Breville.. I was leery as it was $100 more than we paid for the Cuisinart but the reviews were so good I thought I'd try it.
IT'S AWESOME!!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this thing!! Especially after having a cuisinart, I REALLY appreciate things on this one that I didn't have before!!
It's a MONSTER! And I haven't even used all of the features and blades yet! It makes THE BEST, smoothest nut-butters ever! It's pretty quiet, it's super easy to use and clean! I have a 2 yr. old who loves to 'help' me cook, but I don't have to worry about the safety features a all with him around! The timer is really helpful to. The shredder blade is incredible! You don't have to worry about food going down into the center hole either! I can't say enough good things about this processor. I will be using it to make my own baby food when our next little one arrives too!
DEFINITELY worth the money. You'll NEVER regret having this ""Beautiful Beast"" around your kitchen!

Beyond my expectations
I�m a food processor user, I use it for everything. My first processor was a Cuisinart bought in 1993 it fell apart around 2007 forcing me to buy a new processor. I chose KitchenAid because the Cuisinart didn�t feel like the one I had. The KitchenAid lasted about three months before I had to start gluing it back together. I had to glue so many parts back together that by the time I gave up and threw it away it was mostly glue. My husband and the store manager talked me into buying the Breville processor. I have used every attachment just looking for something to not meet my expectations; I�m shocked that it has. Products never perform like the box reads and whatever falls apart is the one part that isn�t covered by the warranty. This has been the case for almost two decades now. It�s about time something came out that is the product advertised on the box.
My top favorite things about my Breville is the leak proof bowl (beyond the best design), the blade/disc stabilizer located on the lid (again great design), the attachment box (so convenient)and the safety features because I move fast in my kitchen and it keeps me from making a painful mistake.
My least favorite thing is that my husband and the manager were right.
The manager at Sur la table Champions really knows his inventory, that and their return policy is what will keep us as loyal customers

"Old dog, new tricks"
My mother-in-law gave me I my first Cuisinart in 1977 and I thought I had never had any thing more magnificent. Through the years I replaced the first one with larger ones or replaced after they had given a long good life and I never considered another brand.

This year, at the young age of 63, I bought the Sous Chef to replace my latest Cuisinart because in my new kitchen I am going to have a dedicated bake center and I wanted two food processors. I read all of the reviews I could. I was impressed with the Sous Chef's heft and its devotion to engineering some of my irks in my food processor: now the tube in the back, the sometime leaking, the wobbling on the counter.

I love the Sous Chef! So much that I'll buy another when this kitchen remodel is done and keep my Cuisinart for crafts! I admit that I have yet to shred cheese on the Sous Chef, but that was always a straining job for the Cuisinart.

Just yesterday I was making pizza dough in my bread machine and I forgot to make sure there was enough liquid for the bread to come together. It had not. I put the mess in the Sous Chef and added more olive oil and in seconds the problem was corrected with ease. I am impressed!

I agree that Julia Child would probably have made the switch, too. I can just hear her voice in my ear warning about over mixing my pie dough because this beast does it better and faster

Most Powerful Processor for Home Use
Have been looking for a food processor as good or better than my old one and 1200 watts (old one had 900) certainly got my attention. All those watts mean a lot and no other processor for home use on the market even comes close All the other features are incredible and am lovin' it every day.

Kicks it!
Super powerful, looks great, and has a wide feed tube. Best of all is the disc caddy, which holds and organizes all the great stuff that comes with this food processor. Even if this wasn't an amazing appliance, which it is, the caddy clinches the deal

this product is a good food processor but
i have this food for about a month. I like it and is a well made product. however even before I buy it I was thinking about buying magimix and still think about trying magimix. one of the reason for this is that I spend this much on a food processor and I like to use all the attachment, but I do not like that the julian disk make round julian rather than straight, or there are lots of waste with the french fries disk, however i like the slicer very much. I think I should try magimix and then make a decision about which one I like to keep. one thing i already know about magimix is that it does not have adjustable slicing disk but it might have other fichures that i would rather compare to breville
