Julia Child and James Beard were among the first culinary experts to hail the food processor as a revolutionary kitchen appliance when it was introduced to America in 1973; they saw the Cuisinart as a quick and easy way to make fine food and healthy dishes. Seeking to help you to "savor the good life", the brand is endorsed by gourmet food aficionados and culinary connoisseurs such as Jacques Pepin and encompasses far more than food processors. The company is a full–service culinary resource with products preferred by chefs and enjoyed by consumers; understanding that concerned parents want homemade food for a healthy baby, the Cuisinart baby line includes baby bottle sterilizers, baby bottle warmers with built–in nightlights, baby food maker and bottle warmer combinations, hand blenders, blending and chopping systems, citrus juicers, blenders, ice cream and sorbet makers, juice extractors, frozen yogurt makers, baby food storage containers and more.
