My parents asked if I wanted a food processor for Christmas. I am wondering what you use it for in your V&V kitchen. I make a lot of hummus, but I've never had problems doing it in a blender. Tonight I'm making a broccoli and cauliflower salad that calls for processing the vegetables in a food processor, but I'm quite sure I'll be able to chop them that finely (though yes, it will take longer). So what do you use yours for? Are you glad you have it?
