Food Processor vs. Mandoline

Cattie | May 7, 2008 12:59 PM

Hi all!
A few weeks ago, I bought an OXO mandoline whith the grand plan of making my own veggie chips. It's still sitting in the box however (busy schedule) and just yesterday I decided I really need a good size food processor.

So my question to you all is this: Should I return the mandoline? Is a food processor able to cut slices thin enough to make (oven baked) chips? How about french fries? I'm going to check them out at BB&B, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to get one of the 14-cup Cuisinarts (not sure which one, I can't really figure out the main differences between the $199, $299 and $349 models). Actually, if anyone has any input on that too, that'd be great!
