Not Recommended

The Viking 12 cup food processor certainly looks professional, with its heavy die cast base and metal-handled polycarbonate work bowl.  It boasts several attractive features such as reversible slicing/shredding discs and is very easy to clean.  However, while it performed well on some tests, overall it turned in performance that was below average: it also included a disappointing 1 year parts warranty.  Considering the high price of this Viking, we recommend that consumers look elsewhere.
