Cuisinart founder, Carl Sontheimer established the company in 1971 and subsequently the Cuisinart brand rose to fame when culinary guru’s Julia Child & James Beard hailed the food processor as a revolutionary kitchen appliance when it was introduced to America in 1973. They saw the food processor as a quick and easy way to make fine food and healthy dishes. The Cuisinart legacy is alive and well as a universally recognized name, endorsed by culinary connoisseurs such as Jacques Pépin and Hubert Keller. These days the brand is not limited to food processors. Plugged or unplugged, nobody covers the kitchen like Cuisinart. The company is a full-service culinary resource with a wide array of products, preferred by chefs and favored by consumers.
