Cuisinart has put a lot in this machine and has introduced the SealTight technology. If you have used inferior models or low end processor then food particles coming out or leaking from the bowl won’t be a surprise for you. Cuisinart has changed that with SealTight and not even a single whiff of flour can escape the bowl. In addition to SealTight it also include the reversible blade technology as well. Do not be surprised it is Elite Edition 2.0.
Its very easy to clean with hands there are not hidden crevices. The machine is made safe for dishwasher but do keep in mind that dishwashers with their rigorous methods can make the bowls become cloudy with passage of time.
Since Cuisinart food processors are optimised for protection you might find it hard initially to lock the machine. The key is to match the bottom notch with base and with anti clockwise rotation lock it and the handle would come to the center of the base.
