Cuisinart FP-12BC Elite 12-Cup Food Processor ($199.99): Classic top-seller at Macy's.
Why couples love it: Food processors are kitchen powerhouses. You can use them to purée soups and sauces; prepare salsas, pestos, dips, and spreads; grind nuts; shred cheese; chop veggies; make baby food and much more. The Cuisinart Elite 12-cup version is a perennial favorite because of its size, seal-tight lid, adjustable slicing disc, two work bowls, and the high quality of the construction. The removable parts are dishwasher-safe, and this product comes with a 10-year motor warranty.
