I'm on a tight budget and agonizing over this decision. Seems like you need to spend about $140 for a decent unit. I'd primarily use it for:
- chopping vegetables for a standard stew I make (not that hard currently with a mandolin slicer
- making homemade almond butter (not even sure it will work with blanched almonds, which would be my preference)
- making puree'd vegetable soups (rather than "chunky" style, which I currently do.)
Are any of these potential uses so amazing (does pureeing vegetable soup make it that much better?) that they justify the expense and having more "stuff" in my apartment?
Thanks in advance...
