different stokes for different folks. I have 2 in my household. A mini cusinart in addition to a large 14cup monster...
I personally nil to never use them.
If I want to do veggies , I will use the mandoline or grater.
I never liked using it for meats. Really never make meats down to a *paste* but I do at times chop them really fine. And I still prefer hand chopping as I prefer the consistency & control of consistency with hand chopping. Seems more uniform.
Just curious if anyone here is in the same boat ? I seem to see one on every kitchen and for me...it just ain't my cup of tea.
