Congrats! That's a beast of a processor. It's really useful for tons of things:

1) Making salad dressings or mayo. It's easy to make your own mayo in one of those things, as well as things like aoli.

2) Hollandaise. Very slick in a food processor.

3) Ham salad (or Beef or Chicken Salad). Just toss chunks of ham in your R2 along with a few pickles & voila- instant ham salad. Add the mayo by hand, though.

4) Pesto. Very fast and easy in the R2.

5) Hummus. You'll be blown away by how fast & easy it is in your Robot Coupe!

6) Salsa. It'll chop the ingredients for salsa or picante sauce quickly.

Really there are tons of uses. I've used a Robot Coupe for all the above applications plus deviled eggs, making mashed cauliflower, etc. It's a pretty handy device.

If we're not supposed to eat animals, then how come they're made out of meat?

Yes ,so far it made mayo for modified Waldof ( used roasted walnut oil for the mayo ) added pecans and split grapes to the celery apple lettuce. It also made short work of the meat paste I add as binder to my deboned stuffed Turkey (,is that a ballintine ? )The opening in the centre of the lid keeps splatters inside , my defunct kitchenaide did splatter .

Congrats! You have the best food processor on the planet! I love mine.
The luster of shiny new appliances can't compete with the virtues of Vintage: namely durability, simplicity, superior cooking and a cool retro look. http://leoladyshousecollectiblesandg....blogspot.com/

I got a 2 x 6 julliene blade , gives good size to coleslaw . I use carrot , red and green cabbage , sunflower seeds and a vinnegrete with a little honey or sugar for balance. It goes very quickly. regards gage
