It looks like our 11 cup Cuisinart Classic food processor has given up the ghost after 12+ years of hard service. We use a Bamix immersion blender for pureeing soups and's baby food in pots, bowls, etc. and we have a good blender for crushing ice, making smoothies, pureeing fruit for sorbet, etc. We mostly use the food processor for chopping nuts or add-ins for ice-cream and baked goods, making piecrusts when I bake, making pesto or sauces in quantity, making breadcrumbs, slicing or grating in quantity, and so on.
Any suggestions on replacement models and any deals out there? DH has been jonesing for a new processor for over a year now and I am not sure how long I will able hold this purchase off, because he is head cook around here . . .
Thanks in advance!
