Unca Bob:
Dough hook for a FP? Do you mean the plastic dough blade? The speed of a FP seems way too fast for a hook. Please enlighten me (us). Thanks, Dave

A thousand apologies.....I did in fact mean a dough blade....not a dough hook!

Does that do it for you?

I just watched some youtube vids. Seems the FP dough blade can give you dough in 2 minutes (Wolfgang Puck's FP), but I already have a bread machine if all I want to do is knead dough.
Hey, maybe I can get a series of chopping and shredding blades for my Breadman

One cool feature on WP's machine was that the slicing blade was adjustable for different thickness. A little more than I want to spend....

Bob: Merely a fumble of the fingers. I've done so many I've lost count. Bravo! for your excellent research and replies.

Most of the bread recipes for the FP that I have call for the metal blade for some reason. I've used the dough blade a few times and can't determine much of a difference. Quien sabe?

I went with this one
I found some more info online and it was rated the best out of the mid-size models on one of the sites. The money saved not getting a larger one I also bought a French fry disk that cuts MacDonald sized FFs, 1/4" strips, so that will get me 2/3 of the way to dicing my potatoes small. Not quite as small as I like for some things, but close.
Now the wait begins......

Hey, good luck. That's very similar to the one I have. Looks like it has the same blades too.

I think you'll be happy with it.

Thanks. I can't wait to try it out.
And that should do it for my kitchen needs for a while.....
...... because I also ordered a 3.5 qt saute pan I've been wanting, a new pepper mill and salt cellar that I needed, and one of those dough scraper thingies so I don't have to use the rusty putty knife that I use to clean my grill out with anymore

Congratulations, Pacanis and happy processing!

I feel a little like I "spent your money" because you weren't looking before I posted the cappuccino cupcake recipe, but I know you will find many uses for it!

Let us know how it goes when you get it!
