I think I’ve decided on the Cuisinart Elite Collection 12 cup. It’s not the monster 14 cup but should be big enough for anything I can imagine, and also comes with a 4 cup bowl. Really, my only concern is that I can’t imagine everything I will do with it (although in another thread many of you listed several things you do with yours). Perhaps I will start making more things (particularly in the evenings) that I never do, such as scalloped potatoes. On Amazon it’s gotten really good reviews although there are some not so great but that’s true with all the models. So I think I’ll take the plunge!
