I need a food processor/chopper from Amazon

Kajikit | May 29, 2012 02:44 PM

My brother gave me a $100 Amazon gift certificate for my birthday, and I want to buy a food processor. I haven't had a full-sized food processor since I was married, but I've gone through three mini choppers in six years. I don't need to make cakes etc in the food processor, but I really want to make hummus and grind almonds, breadcrumbs etc. that you can't effectively do by hand.

I seem to have the following options and I don't know which is the most cost-effective.

Buying a $30 cheapie and only expecting to get a few years use out of it.
Buying a 3-cup KitchenAid or Cuisinart food chopper instead (they're about $50).
Buying a reconditioned 7-cup KitchenAid for $70.
Or blowing the lot on a smallish Cuisinart.
