Best Food Process for Chopping & Slicing Vegetables (does it exist?)

M_Xandria | Apr 23, 2011 02:45 PM

I will be as brief as possible, and thank you all in advance for any advice you can offer.

I have severe limitations in my upper limbs and find cooking both painful and difficult. It's been 15 years since I've enjoyed cooking and I miss it terribly.

I am hoping that a food processor or other kitchen implements may be of help.

I've read other posts about food processors, and perhaps the Magimix or Bosch are what I need, but they may also be overkill. I don't mind spending the money, as long as the item(s) work for my needs.

Which brand or processor is the best for CHOPPING (if such exists -- I've no idea) and slicing. I've tried so called dicer/choppers in the past and they puree, they do not chop or dice. *laughs* I am thusly of the opinion that there is no such device.

Ideally, it would be nice to have a slicer that would allow me to set the thickness of the vegetables I'm slicing.

Being able to shred and grate cheeses would be nice too.

Most of the foods I cook involve vegetables.

Any advice or help for a physically challenged individual who needs some help cutting, chopping and slicing?

Thanks so much.
