CUISINART INTRODUCES LIMITED EDITION METAL™ 14-CUP FOOD PROCESSOR
STAMFORD, CT - June 2003 Cuisinart, which revolutionized the way America prepared its meals with the introduction of the food processor in 1973, is unveiling the company’s Limited Edition Metal™14-Cup Food Processor, model no. MP-14. This top-of-the-line, professional caliber food processor features heavy-duty die-cast metal housing, Santoprene® touch pads, and a powerful induction motor with over ¾ horsepower.
“The MP-14 is a true workhorse for the serious home chef,” says Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart and Waring. “It offers the largest capacity work bowl on the market and a powerful food processor motor that enables consumers to perform a wide range of food preparation tasks.”
Cuisinart’s Limited Edition Metal™ 14-cup Food Processor has a variety of exclusive commercial quality features that expand the possibilities for culinary creativity at home. The company’s Supreme™ Wide Mouth Feed Tube is made of single-piece construction and allows consumers to single-handedly reload ingredients. More than two and a half times larger than any other feed tube on the market, the Wide Mouth Feed Tube virtually eliminates pre-cutting and allows consumers to feed whole fruits or vegetables into the food processor quickly and easily.
The MP-14 also features Cuisinart’s PowerPrep® Metal Dough Blade. This specially designed blade, manufactured with durable, high-quality stainless steel, has blunt edges and a curved surface to precisely incorporate and knead bread dough to the proper consistency. The unique whisk attachment allows consumers to perform baking tasks for cakes and soufflés, such as whipping cream and egg whites. The attachment can also be used to prepare mashed potatoes.
The Limited Edition Metal™ 14-cup Food Processor comes with Cuisinart’s signature metal “S” blade, the market standard when it comes to chopping and mixing, as well as stainless steel medium slicing and shredding discs, and small and large pushers. The MP-14 is compatible with existing Cuisinart 14-cup discs, and all parts are dishwasher safe.
In addition to the distinctive product benefits available in the MP-14, the new food processor touts a utilitarian look, which accommodates the trend towards clean, simple lines in kitchen design. The product can be kept on the countertop in plain view – suiting virtually any home décor.
Cuisinart’s metal 14-cup food processor also includes the company’s how-to video. The product is backed by a full 20-year motor warranty, the longest in the industry. It is also backed by a 3-year limited warranty on the entire unit.
