I made Lebanese Garlic Sauce last weekend in my Cuisinart. Took about 10 minutes to get it properly emulsified, but absolutely fantastic.  We used to buy "That's Good garlic" from a vendor at the Saturday Market, but he has been there this year. We were running low and we have kilos of garlic this year, so I looked up a recipe:
Garlic, neutral oil, lemon juice, salt.

The Cuisinart has this gadget that automatically trickles the oil in, which is critical for proper emulsion.  GIS garlic sauce and the Lebanese recipe is the top couple pages.

You'll never fit a full child inside a Kitchen Food Processor

I'd just rather chop food up by hand and dirty one knife versus hauling out a 15-pound, obnoxiously loud motor and dirtying up half a dishwasher's worth of acrylic parts.

If I were making dinner for 30 people it'd be a different story, but the vast majority of my cooking it's just me.

the Swimo's did not have children. but our BIL/SIL did. and they used them like little servants to fetch cookies, cups of coffee and the like. it was embarrassing to visit at their house.

I would not allow a child to act as a food processor. obviously sharp knives are a danger. children can do place setting, fold napkins, put ice cubes in the bucket. and keep their damn mouths shut.

You're not the target market. That's people who order out and watch a lot of MasterWorstChefChallenge.

Won't argue on the weight, but modern food processors aren't loud and clean up is pretty quick and easy.  It does a hell of a lot more than just chopping things.

What does this even mean?

Easier than cleaning a single knife?  Okay, sometimes I chop with two knives.  You got me.

Of course not, but the time you save using the food processor more than makes up for it.  And as I mentioned before, it does more than simply chop ingredients.

No it doesn't, not for my cooking load.  An onion takes two minutes to chop.  You're still trying to get the acrylic bowl thingie to lock into place.

And I don't even know why you think it's important that it can do other things.  What, I'm supposed to lug out this bulky thing and dirty a bunch of acrylic parts to cut up an onion and two carrots because some other time I might be able to lug it out and dirty a bunch of acrylic parts to grate a couple potatoes?  GMAFB.

I picture you as someone who bought an expensive food processor and is now desperately using me a proxy to convince yourself you didn't waste all that money on something that doesn't help much.  Or, you're one of those people who regularly makes huge meals that justify the overhead cost and trouble of a food processor, and is simply too small-minded to imagine that someone else might be in a different situation where the food processor does not save enough work to justify the trouble of it.  Either way, I'll have none of it.  Your arguments are not convincing, I won't validate your expensive purchase if that's what you did, and I will continue to use knives to chop, hand graters to grate, and a stick blender on those occasions where I need to puree.

aerojockey: An onion takes two minutes to chop.


Yeah, no one said it was a good option to chop a single onion.


aerojockey: And I don't even know why you think it's important that it can do other things.


Because the article and this accompanying thread are about food processors.

Uh, neither?  You seem oddly bent out of shape over this.  Your original comment implied (whether intentional or not) that this thing was only good for chopping shiat up and it's a biatch to clean.  I merely pointed out it does much more and is just as easy to clean as your stick blender.  I don't give a shiat if you buy one.

I say you are.  I said right away that I am cooking for me, so the fact that you had this weird need to keep telling  me I was wrong about a food processor indicates you didn't have any conception, or chose to ignore, that other people have different cooking patterns than you.

And, no it's not as easy to clean a full food processor as a stick blender.

This is fark, where we reply to other comments with shiat that might be germane to the discussion at large.  For fark's sake, you're not new here.

Says the farking dude who doesn't have one.  Ok.

I don't know, you just made a blanket statement that food processors save time, in reply to me, without any regard to what I said about cooking for myself.  Not like, "well, for me, it saves time", or "if you need to chop more than one onion it save time".  Just, "it saves time", at me, without qualification.  I feel like, nah, you really did feel like your own experience applied to everyone there.

Also, yes I did use to have a food processor.  I got rid of it two moves ago because in years of ownership (must have been more than seven), because not once, not a single time that I ever got it out did it feel like less trouble than just chopping or grating it by hand.  For me, it was basically like many other kitchen gadgets that you use a few times ever.

To each their own then.  There are a handful of things I'd take over it if I could only keep certain things in the kitchen, but it's pretty close to indispensable in my experience.
