If you want to break out your processor and perform the experiment, I welcome your results.
I do not need to scott!
When this question first arose, you made a statement, that "no food processor on this planet can handle thick slices of pepperoni". At that time, there was no mention by you of any specific model. Only now, after vilasman1's statement about his Kitchenaid, are you mentioning a specific brand.
I am not about to go out to purchase pepperoni I do not need in order to "prove it to you" because obviously you would not believe my posted results anyway. Otherwise, after my previous statements, you would not have continued to express doubts about the accuracy of my statements.
Now, I stated previously that either a Cuisinart DLC-X or a Robot Coupe Food Processor will be able to handle this task, as will a Rotary or a Pelican head attachment for a Kitchenaid mixer. Anyone with any knowledge of these machines and attachments would accept my statements without question. Apparently, you have no knowledge of them.
So for the record, so I won’t have to hear further doubts about there being “no food processor on this planet that will handle, I will give you the results of my online search for “proof” of the power and the ability of the Cuisinart DLC-X, and the Robot Coupe.
“The Cuisinart DLC-X Plus Food Processor provides unmatched performance and durability. The extra large 20 cup capacity Work Bowl is perfect for catering and restaurant use. Direct drive 1-1/2 horsepower induction motor delivers the ultimate in strength and efficiency and consumes less electricity than some smaller food processors.”
