Don't be dissuaded by the Breville Sous Chef's hefty price tag.

This versatile device is worth every penny. Its main attraction is the 5.5-inch super-wide chute that allows you to slice veggies and fruits of all shapes and sizes without having to cut them by hand ahead of time. The Sous Chef comes with a set of eight discs and blades for many different prep options; the discs include a variable slicing disc that can adjust the thickness of your cuts from a paper thin 0.3mm (.01" ) to a solid 8mm (.3"). The Breville comes equipped with both 16-cup and 2.5-cup processing bowls for different sized jobs.
