I used my food processor for the first time yesterday to make matchtick pieces of zucchini to make zucchini pancakes. I have had the machine since my wedding 6 yrs ago! What do you use your processor for and how many times a week do you use it?
What about your kitchen aid? I use the mixer to make cookies a few times a year. Otherwise it sits in the closet.
I use a knife and a cutting board most of the time to do all my prep. I have a favorite wooden spoon and spatula and usually use the same saute pan over and over. What about you? What do you really NEED to cook and bake?
