Food processor recommendation

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

What do you all recommend for a good food processor? I want one mostly for making pasta dough quickly, but also for emulsions, pure's etc.. Price is a consideration but quality is more important to me. 

Right now all I have is a Waring blender that is about as handy as a broken finger. It spins way to fast and causes cavitation. I think the thing could separate water into hydrogen and oxygen..

I use a Kitchen Aid stand mixer for doughs....  Have you tried one of those "outboard motors" for emulsions...  I use mine for soups, gravies, drinks...   it's handy...

Whatever you get I suggest you go big.  I have a 16 cup and I love the size.  I don't use it much but when I do the size is great.  I can't recommend mine simply because I don't use it enough.

I have a boat motor and I use it when I need it. It's a handy tool for sure. I do have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer too, a real nice one that moves the bowl up and down. I haven't tried it for pasta dough, only bread dough. Hmmmm

I prefer my white mountain dough mixer way over the KA for bread.. But bread dough and past dough are not the same.

Indeed.. I want to be able to drop a block of cheese or an onion, bell pepper  and celery into it to make a fast mirepoix. I have good knife skills, but I'm just getting older and lazier..

I've got a Cuisinart Super Pro for large quantities and a 4 cup Cuisinart for little stuff. I also have a Ninja blender for things like large batches of pesto. For dough I use a KitchenAid stand mixer.

I worked with a guy that made a blender out of a two stroke weed eater. No waiting for margheritas.

Does that thing assemble / disassemble and clean easily? Durable?

The "boat motor" is a hand-held blender. They are souper friendly and can fix a lumpy gravy.

Have you seen the garbage disposal and Gott cooler builds for margaritas?

The Cuisinart I have is the full sized one. They come apart easily and everything fits in the dishwasher. Mine is at least 20 years old.

I have a hand held blender. I use it quite a bit for soups and things like that.

Garbage disposal and a Gott cooler? P.A.R.T.Y!

Opted for the 11 cup KitchenAid in red. It will match my mixer nicely.

I hope so, It'll be here Saturday.

Now I'm looking at the KA four slice toaster, in red of course. With a family of 5, It's hard to keep up the toast output with a two-slotter..

It just got here in the mail. It has a nice storage container for all the accessories and comes with a ton of them! Between this and the briskets I scored at the store, I had a good day..
