Food Processor Recommendations Please

Postby ebonina » Tue Dec 21, 2010 1:12 pm

My birthday is in January and I would like DH to buy me a food processor. I have a mini Magimix which was great when there was just me, but isn't much use for the 4 of us. I have looked at the 4200XL to replace it, but any other recommendations or experiences would be gratefully received.
TIA

What do you normally use it for? Will it be stored in a cupboard (some can be quite heavy)?

I have a Moulinex that I bought about 12 years ago now and its still going strong but I dont use it an awful lot. Its a fairly basic model but I do have a Kitchenaid liquidiser that compliments it well.

I think I'll use it a lot and will keep it on the worktop. I need it for baking, kneading dough, slicing, mincing and probably lots of other things. I have a Kitchenaid food mixer with some attachments but it only goes at top speed atm and I'm really missing it. I'd forgotten how hard work making pizza bases can be :giggle:

I have a Philips one, not sure the number and too lazy to check sorry. But it's an older one and has a blenderpart and another part for cutting, making breaddough, chopping, mixing, well all those things a machine like that can do.
And it has a really really sharp knife I noticed after my first use, I almost lost my thumb.
