Food Processors

So I went looking for a food processor at Target for Aron’s birthday. And yes, that IS what he asked for. He’s wanted one forever, and I’ve been too paranoid about the ultra-sharp blades in the company of children to ever buy him one. He LOVES to cook, makes spaghetti sauce, etc., so he really wanted a food processor.

The first thing I notice is Target doesn’t carry Cuisinart food processors. They only carry Kitchen-Aid (a reputable brand of mixer, to be sure), Oster (a good blender, right?) and Black and Decker (good tools).

I wasn’t sure what to do. I tried to call Tresa but got no reception on my end. So I had to use my bean. I could smell the smoke coming out of my ears from overuse.

Hmmm. The Oster and the B&D have a 10-cup capacity. The Kitchen-Aid only has 7. BUT the Kitchen-Aid is twice the cost, and don’t you get what you pay for? The Oster was on sale like ½ price, and I wondered why. The Oster and B&D floor models were trashed out and looked cheap.

So I went for the Kitchen-Aid.

What would you have done or what brand do you own and love?


  1. Buy a Cuisinart.

    I have a Hamilton Beach or Oster, and it's not got the oomph I'd really like a kitchen power tool to have.

    Sorry I missed your call that day.

  2. i thought i'd use my food processor a ton but it's more trouble than it's worth. it's only good for making my ham glaze and pie crusts. i don't use it much else.

  3. LLLLLOOOOOVVVVEEEEEE my kitchen aid. you made the right choice!

  4. Food processors are helpful in saving time... Great choice!!
