Do I "Need" a Food Processor?

eepi | Nov 20, 2012 04:51 PM

Last year I got my stepdaughters nice food processors for Christmas, and regretted not getting one for myself. That said, I don't even pull out my blender very often, I'm not even sure what a food processor does better than a blender. I am debating whether to ask for one for Christmas this year - on the plus side, it seems like it might save me a lot of prep time, but on the minus side, it would take more time to clean than a knife & cutting board. Another potential plus would be that it might make me more likely to do things like pesto - but a drawback is that it has to be stored somewhere...

So. Do you love your food processor or is it something you really don't use that often? Do you need one in your kitchen? Do I "need" one in mine?
