Several weeks ago, I asked for help in finding a combination food processor-blender because my old-faithful from years gone by was at death's door, and our cabinet space is very limited.
I got several suggestions, including the idea that I should just get a good quality food processor, and find a hand-blender for the blender part. Thanks, Bob and Caitlin and all!
Over the weekend, we went window-shopping based on all the ideas, not really expecting to plunk down any money that day. We found a Cuisinart 11 cup food processor with a mis-labeled price too good to be true, and the sales person honored the mis-label, so we did the impulse-buying thing. (Well, I think we did enough 'homework.') There is a hand blender in black and chrome befitting of Tool Time that we will pick up another time.
First venture with the Cuisinart: shreds carrots better than the old one ever did- our first cole slaw batch was mighty tasty! Thanks again to everyone for your suggestions!!!!
