A new toy for my kitchen...

A few months ago, I got another new toy for my kitchen. I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond (this is the place I should never go...if money were no object, I'd buy almost one of everything they sell) to get a new step stool, and came home with this...


It's a KitchenAid 12 cup food processor. I LOVE IT! My friend Sheila had just purchased a similar one and so I just thought I would check to see if they had one and check the price. I can blame Bruce...he talked me into it. Said I needed it for my catering business and to make my life easier, and it was on sale, and also had a rebate, so I couldn't resist. First of all, it's very heavy, so I just keep it out on my counter...but it's pretty enough that I can do that. Also, I use it almost as much as my Kitchen Aid mixers, so it would be pointless to keep digging it out of the cupboard. It comes with a nice little box to store the attachments in that I keep in a nearby cupboard. It is so powerful, yet so quiet, that it finishes the job before you have a chance to watch it work. Slicing and chopping veggies for soups, shredding carrots for cakes, making bread crumbs in seconds. Tonight I used the dough blade for the first time and made pizza dough in about 2 minutes...wow! So here's my suggestion...if you are in the market for a new food processor, don't fool around with the other brands...save your money and buy a KitchenAid...it's worth every cent.
