Shredding onions in my food processor

HeyImBack | Mar 4, 201808:56 AM     6

Hi,

I have a Cuisinart FP-14DC food processor. I use it (among other things) when making potato latkes at least twice a year. A problem I keep running into is when I use the shredding disc for the onions. I put large chunks of onions in the feeder tube and end up with a combination of onion juice and smaller chunks of onions in my work bowl. No shreds, like I'm aiming for. Am I cutting my onions wrong? Or is the shredding disc just not the best disc for onions? The disc is reversible, and I've tried using both sides w/ the onions w/ the same result. The disc works beautifully on potatoes. I made latkes last night and after fishing out all the large onion pieces from the work bowl, said "never again." I would love to know what I'm doing wrong!
