I vaguely remember Cuisinart as the manufacturer of the Robot-Coupe  
food processor line for professional kitchens shortly before the  
Cuisinart food processor for home kitchens became available. Or maybe  
it was Robot-Coupe creating the original Cuisinart and then changing  
the name of the company...

I always wanted a Robo-Coup R2  to casually keep visible in my  
kitchen... It's what G-d used to puree rocks when creating the earth,  
and S/he needed filler, and is still, for my money at least, probably  
the finest, most no-nonsense, most durable, and most powerful food  
processor in the world outside of some kind of specialized, industrial  
setting, and has been for maybe 35 years... very little design change  
over the years, too...
