I Heart My Food Processor

I have resisted buying a food processor for the LONGEST time.  I can chop.  Why do I need a machine?  I already have to many machines and gadgets cluttering my kitchen.  And I CAN CHOP!

As you probably know, I make my own dog food.  It has a lot of veggies in it, and I always chopped them by hand.  After all, I can chop.

About a year ago I was stayig with a friend.  I had shared my dog food recipe with her, and she just happened to be making it one of the days I was there.  First thing she did after washing all the veggies was pull out her food processor.  "UGH", I though, "I can chop".  I judged.  But I also was surprised at how much less time it took for her to make dog food.

But I'm stubborn.  AND...I can chop.

Two months later, about 10 months ago, my sister dragged me to a Cuisinart warehouse sale.  And I couldn't pass up a 14 cup stainless steel food processor for $120.

It has an extra wide opening at the top so you can shred veggies without having to chop them up too much first.  And it processes all the veggies for dog food in about 1 hour.  It used to take me 4-5 hours.  And it also makes great pie dough, slices veggies for salads in a snap, and shreds through costco sized bricks of cheese (for freezing) in minutes.  It has a strong motor and sharp, good quality bades.  It goes through anything I throw in to it like butta!

I can STILL chop!!

But for bigger jobs, I save tons of time using my swanky, welll loved, food processor.

Resistance is futile. Get one.  You won't regret it.

What's your favorite kitchen gadget or appliance?

Hi! I am new to your blog, and I am laughing because for years I've been resisting the temptation to buy a food processor, but this one on your post? LOVE IT!

I've never used one of these. I see them in the store a lot but they're pretty expensive. Glad you love yours!
