Tonight, in the middle of making a quadruple batch of my favorite pesto recipe, my third blender (in the last year) went up in smoke. I called my chef brother, who suggested I switch to a food processor. Fearful I wouldn't have my daily smoothie tomorrow, I raced out to get a food processor before the store closed and grabbed the Cuisinart Prep 11 Plus (Model DLC-2011).
And then I foolishly googled food processor reviews and don't know if I made the right decision... I just want something that won't burn up when I make a daily smoothie and large batches of pesto. There are so many manufacturers and models, and I can't figure out what would be the most appropriate? Will this work, or is there something better out there?
And could I use this to make pie crust?
Any comments, thoughts, suggestions would be appreciated!!!
