Q: We bought a Cuisinart 14-cup food processor a few months ago. When using the slicing blade, any food we slice (carrots, courgettes, eggplant, etc.) ends up turning sideways after about three-quarters of the vegetable has been sliced.

That means the last quarter is sliced lengthwise, and you suddenly have very long slices instead of the nice short ones you had at the beginning.

Have you experienced this? I have the feeling that the distance between the slicing blade and the plastic lid is too large, so the food has space to turn sideways into the machine.

We are not happy with the Cuisinart for this reason and would like to change to either KitchenAid or MagiMix. Can you recommend a model where this does not happen?

Editor: Readers, can you recommend a food processor that would do a better job slicing vegetables evenly? Or do you have any tips for working with the Cuisinart?
