I want to get my niece a food processor for Christmas.  I would like to get one that does a good job and is easy to use and clean for the basic stuff.  It doesn't need a lot of frills.  She washes dishes by hand.  No dishwasher where she is. I have no experience with one. 

Does anyone have good experiences with a certain brand?  Or bad experiences, for that matter.

Any help would be appreciated.

My advice is to spend as money as you can because when it comes to food processors, the more expensive ones really are better made.  The blade assemblies and the motors are what you are paying for.

The higher-end Cuisiniart brands are what I have always used and liked.

Good luck!!

I have this one:www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000SAOF5S

a Hamilton Beach model that I love and for about 50 bucks...

It's got a slicer in addition to the regular processor blade.

I agree with Sarah.  I have had cuisinarts and find they do no better job than a good less expensive one.  A lot of what you pay for with Cuisinart is the name.
