This is the number one electric appliance in a professional kitchen. It's that important. The cost for a good quality food processor can be a shock but it's truly worth the investment. Make sure you buy a processor with a good size bowl. If the bowl is too small, any liquids inside will ooze down the sides of the bowl onto the processor base.

Food processors can be fun! Make a good pie crust in less than a minute? Only with a food processor.
