After years of chopping and blending, the day has finally arrived: I’m buying a food processor. Specifically this one from Cuisinart. While I love my Vitamix for pureeing and liquifying, the blades of a food processor are better for slicing, shredding and chopping—even making pie crust (just ask Sarah Fennel of Broma Bakery). This ultra-powerful food processor has a 14-cup bowl, but if you want a slightly smaller version this one has a 10-cup bowl. Both are on sale!
