What can a food processor do that a mortar and pestle, Kitchenaid Professional stand mixer, Shun mandoline, and Vitamix Professional blender cant do?

I was about to get a food processor when I realized it might be a waste of counter space. I normally like to do chopping with a regular knife to practice my knife skills. If not I use a mandoline. The mixer is great for everything baking related. The mortar and pestle is great for a more authentic pesto. Im just left to wonder why I would need a food processor.
