My food processor comes to the rescue in so many ways. I use it for grating cheese… because honestly, I flat out hate grating cheese by hand. I’m always scared I’ll scrape my knuckle and who wants to go to the ER for that. Okay maybe it wouldn’t be that bad, but one never knows. I have a cute little grater sitting on top of my oven, but it rarely gets used. And sometimes I really just plain old don’t like chopping by hand, so in comes the handy and trusty food processor to save the day.

But that’s not all (not to sound like an infomercial) I only make pie dough in my food processor now. It’s such a major pain by hand, so one day I tried it and I’m never ever ever going back to the old way again (okay now Taylor Swift is stuck in my head…sorry about that). I blend meat for wontons…which btw are a total must make for New Years. Crush and mix ingredients for cheesecake crust. That’s not even touching the spectrum of how much I love and use this but you get the idea.

I had an old food processor, well loved and used but it got to the point where I was literally scared I’d hurt myself removing the blades and discs because they would get stuck so tight. I promise I’m not exaggerating. One of the many features that I love about the KitchenAid 13-cup food processor is there is no chance for blades or discs to get stuck, so I don’t have a single fear using it! [rss-cut]

Here are a just a few of the awesome features:
TWO… that’s right two bowls! Included is a 13 cup and 4 cup bowl that nestle together
2 multipurpose blades and 1 dough blade
An adjustable slicing disc, for thin to thick slices
A reversible shredding disc
Storage bin
Did I mention that it’s really light weight and super easy to use?!

I love it and I think you’ll love it too. SO…as a thank you for being amazing readers and fans, I want you to have one!
