Robot Coupe vs Cuisinart vs Others?

I am a bit less concerned if it is made in China, if it is actually well made. I have the new Kitchen Aid Professional 600 mixer, which very well may be made in China, and it is all metal parts, as the warranty, etc. From what I hear the issue is when there are numerous plastic parts on the heavy use items like that.

ferret, I will look into the Cuisinart Elite as well. The warranty is nice, and it sounds like you have had good experience with it.

Thank you all for your feedback. I'm just recently starting to purchase all of my own equipment, if I'm going to spend $300 or so on an appliance, I want to know it will last.

Robot Coupe vs Cuisinart vs Others?

I am looking to buy a good food processor. I have a Cuisinart mini-prep, but it is too small and doesn't have all the needed blades. In the past I have used by mother's Robot Coupe from the early 70's, a fantastic machine, still works wonderfully. Unfortunatly, the base models of Robot Coupe now retail for $500+ from what I am finding. What are other high quality food processors out there that are tried and true? I want something that has the quality of a Robot Coupe or the Kitchenaid stand mixers, something that will last the test of time and many recipes . Any suggestions? Thanks all!
