Keep or sell? Kitchenaid blender and food processor

tazia | Feb 4, 2012 08:38 AM

So I just happened to be on one of those flash sale sites and lucked into an absurd deal for KitchenAid appliances ($7.33 each, brand new). I already am going to be selling the stand mixer I got, since I have a better one, but I'm vacillating on what to do with the food processor and the blender.

The food processor:

The blender:

I don't have a full-size food processor now, so I'd LOVE to have one on hand, especially for making pie dough. I like the fact that this model comes with a mini-processor attachment, since I know we often are making smaller amounts of things. I also know, however, that the KitchenAid FP has some mixed reviews and a lot of people prefer Cusinart or something else. Should I sell this and use the proceeds for another model?

We have a random Hamilton Beach blender that I don't use very often, but is pretty lame when I do. It gets the job done, but usually involves a lot of stirring and poking on my part. Once again, the KitchenAid gets some mixed reviews. Not sure if I should keep it or not.

Thanks for any input!
