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: http://www.hamiltonbeach.com/products/kitchen-appliances-food-processors.html?sort=1

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.
