Eliminating plastic

pijamab | Jan 13, 2007 11:56 PM

Recently, I've become somewhat wary of microwaving food in plastic and of putting hot food in plastic containers. I've replaced all my leftover containers with pyrex (and other borosilicates). This link sumarises my concerns:

It's not that I'm convinced that all plastics release toxins. It's more that no one seems to know for sure. Plus glass is just classier!

Anyways, in my slightly obsessive-compulsive plastic purge, I've hit a roadblock. Every single food processor in existence has a plastic work bowl. Does anyone know of a food processor with a glass or steel bowl? Plenty of blenders have glass pitchers. Why not food processors? Any manufacturers out there willing to capitalize on my paranoia?
