Some tips for using a Food Processor

1. Chill meat in freezer for about 15-20 before slicing in
Food processor.
2. Chill hard cheese in freezer for 15 min. before shredding in Food
processor. You can do soft cheese too , like mozzarella, muenster,
monteray jack , etc.

A modified Alton Brown Trick

3. Make cleaning easy and clean it straight away.

I grind meat with mine (the Best Hamburger Ever!) and in the now classic episode "A Grind is a Terrible Thing to Waste" AB suggests running a bit of bread though your grinder to clean it.

I do the same thing with my Food Processor. I grind the meat, then run a couple slices of bread through, dump the bread so the bowl and blades clean up with much less hassle. A buddy of said I should dump that cup of bread into my meatloaf along with my croutons, but I've yet to try that.

Edited for Overuse of pronouns poor spelling.
