Can these machines do onions finely chopped, taking that out of the job pool? I can adjust the celery sizing down to what the machines do, so that is less work too.
Stark, look for frozen chopped onions in the frozen vegetables section of the supermarket. Also available are chopped frozen bell peppers.

I recently picked up the Cuisinart ELITE collection, in a 12 cup version. I LOVE this processor. I am addicted to it, using it every day! It does chopping, slicing, processing etc. I'd google it to learn more. It's amazing!

Tks Sandy, I have watched the video on their site and the one on youtube. I am getting more familiar with it and thanks to the fine members here the limitations of FP's in general.

Spent the past couple of hours calling around, no one has any of the 14cup ones locally, and the 16cup from William Sonoma is $430 here in Canada instead of $299 in the US. Currently the exchange would only put that at $312can, but the US WS stores will not sell into Canada.

if a 1/2 inch cut will work for you ,might a "Lincoln onion king " work for you ? It doesn't care if you cut carrot potatoe or onions. just google it ,manual but fairly easy due to leverage, it has two rows of blades and i suppose one set could be removed to get a one inch cut. I realize it is a long shot but you never know , it cleans up easy ,no parts to assemble , food processers tend to take as long to clean as to do the work , Gage

when i have a cooking party as opposed to a pot luck or sushi making night , people do want to be the one to pull the handle down ,it is cool , I don't use it alot but my friends call it MR ONION . wjthout going to look i think mine makes 1/8 " slices. so that's two rows of 1/4 ' blades.
I think my kids are in negotiations on who will end up with it, I often buy high end things in pairs so as not to cause a problem when I'm gone. regards gage
