I'm considering getting a food processor. So many recipes say to use one and I never have. I've been doing some research and I see that the Hamilton Beach brand is BPA free. (I assume all models are.) I've always had great customer service with HB, so that's a plus. Now to decide which model to get. 


Having no experience with a food processor, I can't figure out which model is best. I'm thinking the most important quality is to chop and blend. I can slice with a knife. Does anyone have any experiences to share? Are there any other affordable processors that are BPA free? (The only stainless steel bowls I can find are multiple hundred dollar commercial processors.)


Here's a link to the Hamilton Beach family of food processors:



Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing and living as gluten, dairy, and cane sugar free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

We have a "mini-food-processor" from Cuisinart that I think does a great job.  I rarely need anything bigger, and when I do, I just do a couple of batches in our little one.  The bigger, fancier ones are a little too complicated for my tastes, and when I've used them, I've always been a bit irritated by how difficult they are to wash.  I use mine a LOT for all sorts of things -- in the last 24 hours, I've used it to make a batch of salsa, a batch of hummus, and to chop onions/garlic/parsley for tabouli.  Having a food processor of some kind is TOTALLY worth it, IMO. 

I'm traveling the world with my kids without ever leaving home and blogging about it -- watch, taste, and share our adventures at!
