Have had Cuisinarts for over 40 years, but
First use of this one has convinced me I was wise to get it. So much easier to engage the lid and the processing function is very thorough.

Awesome Machine
Great food processor simple to use.

Very well designed and substantial good processor
I struggled trying to decide whether or not to upgrade from my 7-cup Kitchen Aid good processor. I recently retired and I have a lot more time to cook and try new techniques. After researching online for quite some time I decided to take the plunge and buy this one. Well, all I can say is if you are debating whether to try this machine - DO IT. Like other reviewers have said, the engineering and design are fantastic. No hole in the bowl (there is a removable spindle), no crevices to try to clean, especially in the lid, I love the adjustable slicing blade, the 3 different sizes for the chute, and everything is heavy and substantial. This is a well made machine. So far I have made grated cabbage for coleslaw, and made pie dough. Now I wish I had bought it months ago. At first I was going to keep it in the cabinet but since I will be using it often it has a place on the counter. My other food processor seems like a toy compared to this one. I highly recommend this good processor!

Huge hole in the bowl on the first use!
We had a horrifying experience. We read the directions and were ready to go; making peanut butter was slated as our first adventure. As we started to puree the peanuts, a hole about 2" in diameter blew out of the back of the bowl, causing all the nuts to spit out across the kitchen. Fortunately no one was hurt! We returned the machine and are waiting for a replacement. If this one does not work out, we will have to go with another brand.

This is the machine if one is serious re. Blending anything and everything! Great buy at a very affordable price!

This is a great machine
I love this machine. The price is good and it does an excellent job. It takes more time to clean it than is does to process food. I would recommend the Breville over other models.
May 6, 2015
I love my Breville
I had no idea. I never owned a food processor, thinking that slicing and chopping by hand was perfectly suitable - and why would I want to spend a bunch of money to simply do it faster. Wow. Was I wrong!!! I use my Breville every single day. It is EASILY the most useful item in my kitchen.

I have a new Breville 12 cup. How do you make julienne cuts?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The julienne disc (and fry disc) comes with the 16-cup Soux Chef, but not the 12-cup. But maybe Breville also sells these separately as an upgrade?
Does it have 2 work bowls (one each for wet & dry)? Is there any room in the bowls for food particles to get accumulated overtime and develop mold? Will this julienne for stir-fries? Will it dice or cube fruits & veggies?
ChtVA on Sep 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There is only one work bowl for wet and dry ingredients. It only comes with the below blades:

Micro-serrated S-blade.
• Variable slicing disc.
• Reversible grater for coarse and fine grating.
what is the difference between this model and the Breville Sous Chef 12-Cup Plus?
Jennifer W on Jan 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: One difference I noticed was that the plus comes with a mini bowl and blade.
Is a french fry disk available for this model?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I read online that if you slice potatoes to the thickness desired, then remove them from the bowl and re-stack in the feed tube the other way then you will have fries, haven't tried it though.
description says LCD time but photos don't show a display. are the phototos from a prototype? or is the description wrong? or am I not seeing something?

dimensions are missing a L,W or H

weight says 7 pounds. that's about 1/3 the weight of comparable food processors. is that enough heft to keep it from bouncing around the counter? or is it supposed be 17 pounds?

most food processor buttons these days are the sealed membrane type, these look like regular buttons and hard to keep clean. are they going to get gunked up and prone to spills?
daniel bothman d on Aug 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: For the dimensions and weight, we updated the product description with the following:

17.32” H (with bowl) x 7.7” W x 11” D

16.53 lbs.

There is no LCD screen. The image is correct. Description updated yesterday. LCD is only with the 16 cup.

There is no plastic membrane covering the buttons. There would be a protective bit of plastic covering it when its unboxed but there’s no permanent plastic membrane.
French frys?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2014
I do not see this model (BFP660) on the Breville official parts website, only the larger BFP880. Can I order parts for this model (an additional bowl)?
Brian P on Nov 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I imagine that since this food processor is so new, there aren't additional parts available just yet.
Bfp800xl vs bfp660sil comparison?
Tim G on Dec 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We are not chefs so the 12 cup processor without all the other blades, etc is adequate for us. We felt that we would be getting a lot of blades we don't use. By the way many years ago we iwned a cusinart and the Breville far surpasses the Cuisinart in quietness and performance. So happy with our choice AND with the customer service we've received from Sur la Table
Does it also come in red colour like the larger sous chef?
Poopak D on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: At this time, this model is only available in the pictured brushed stainless color.
What is the difference between the Sous Chef 12 cup and the Sous Chef "PLUS" 12 cup, not the 16 cup?
Thomas B on Sep 20, 2015
Breville Sous Chef Food Processor, 12 Cup
Breville Sous Chef Food Processor, 12 Cup
Breville Sous Chef Food Processor, 16 Cup
Breville Sous Chef Food Processor, 16 Cup
BEST ANSWER: The Breville Sous Chef Plus comes with more blades & a storage box.
Why isn't there a smaller bowl 2 1/2 cup as included with the 12 cup Breville Sous Chef at Williams & Sonoma?
Adelia C on Dec 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Because that model is exclusive to Williams Sonoma. By contract, only they can carry it.
Why does it sound like metal or gears dropping when the processor stops?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have not experienced this, but, I have only used mine a few times since my purchase.
Have owned the 12 cup for a week. Haven't been able to dice. Is there a designated blade for dicing?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We have owned ours for a few years, and an early model Cuisanart before that. We haven't tried to dice anything with either model, but if I wanted to dice something - say ham, here's how I would attempt to do it. I'd use the adjustable slicing disk, setting it to the desired thickness. I'd cut the ham into large square chunks that would fit into the chute. I'd slice the chunks, then retrieve the slices and taking them a bunch at a time, slice them in the other dimension. I can think of no way to dice the food in one step - using the chopping blade might approximate dicing if carefully done to avoid over processing. Good luck!
What is the interior dimension of the feed chute? What diameter can be easily fed?
Anne Y on Dec 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The feed tube is 5 1/4" wide by 2 1/2" deep at the widest part.
Will this fit in a 13” vertical space, like a drawer with the bowl off?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The silver base with the bowl off is about 7” tall. You would need a drawer that is 7” or higher in depth. You could not put the base in a silverware drawer. If you have a drawer that is 13” tall vertically then the base will fit if you remove the bowl.
What are the difference in the models of Breville 16 cups vs 12 cups (Plus Version and 12 cup model ??
A shopper on Dec 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 200 watts, size of feed chutes, whisking/french fry/julienne discs, two-part s-blade versus single-part s-blade, and the timer.
Is plastic BPA free?
Elene B on Dec 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is according to information supplied by sales rep in store. This is a gift for my daughter!
is it dishwasher safe?
Halina on Nov 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: ?Care: Hand wipe unit clean. Removable components are dishwasher safe.
The manual says that "The processing bowl and lid may occasionally be washed in the dishwasher (top shelf only), however washing in the dishwasher is not recommended on a regular basis, as prolonged exposure to harsh detergents, hot water and pressure will damage and
shorten the life of the plastic and the interlock components." But the Sur La Table description says "Care: Hand wipe unit clean. Removable components are dishwasher safe". Could you clarify, as I would have thought the bowl and the lid and its components would be fine in a dishwasher? If not, I may not buy the machine, as the Cuisinart is definitely ok in a dishwasher. Thanks very much!
Susan R on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I hand wash the bowl and lid. My last food processor was a Kitchen Aid brand and the interlocking parts became brittle and broke after automatic dish washing in just a short time. My previous food processor was a Cuisinart, which I had for many, many years was put in the automatic dish washer but that model was made prior to many of the required safety features for today's models. If the bowl and lid of the Breville were extremely gunky, then I would put them in the automatic dishwasher. but not on a regular basis. Of the three food processors I have owned, I like this Breville the most. I is easy to operate, powerful, relatively easy to clean and functions well. I highly recommend it.
The description states this can dice like the sous chef model however I do not see a dicng blade included. Does this model dice or not ?
Ignacio R on Nov 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Negative... unless it is an extra module to purchase separately, this food processor doesn’t have the capability to dice.
One customer said the washer ring broke. Has this problem been fixed?
Sandy on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have had my processor for 12 months and the washer ring just broke. But I called Breville warranty and this must be an occurring problem so they are replacing it even though I was past the warranty by a few weeks.
The cord is extremely short. What is the recommendation for a cord extension?
Rachael K on Oct 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The cord appears quite short when you receive the unit but if you give it a good pull, the cord extends to over 2 feet. the cord is wound up inside the base of the unit for delivery and storage.
can it do zucchini noodles?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not to my knowledge. It comes with a slicer and grating attachment. If you have a kitchen aide stand mixer you get get the spirelizer attachment to make zucchini noodles.
Do the Breville Sous Chef Food Processors have a continuous feed chute, or will it only process with the feed tube in place?
Jeanne G on Nov 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you are wondering if the machine will run with the feed tube out, it will for the smallest one and a second size. There is a safety switch with the biggest one which needs to be approximately half way pushed in to set the machine on.
Does the 12 cup make fries?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Have not tried it. We have a different slicer that makes all different shapes we use for that kind of thing.
will the sous chef 12 plus accessories fit the sous chef 12?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are the same machines ,but if you are looking at the mini bowl you need the mini blade too
Does the Sous Chef grind wheat berries to make flour?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have not tried to grind wheat berries with the Sous Chef. I can only say that this food processor is the best one I have owned.
Which disc is used for julienne?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would assume either the coarse or fine shredder disk would work depending on how large or small you want your pieces, but I have not used my food processor to julienne anything yet.
A shopper on Dec 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, it doesn't have a whisk.
