Thanks! That is a good tip. I do like my pesto breadcrumbs though. it will be handy for everything else I make.

Thanks so much for the tips, everyone. Oh my gosh, I have so many things to try. Gazpacho, pesto, mayo, salsa, hummus, bacon bits - the list is getting very long. The ham salad was something I never would have thought of and it was fantastic - the kids loved it. I really can't tell you how much I appreciate having this place to come to for help in the kitchen.

Isn't it great to have a new toy and information to know how to use it?

Before long you will shoot anyone who entertains the notion of separating you from your food processor.

Keep on having fun and use it in good health.

I use my FP for a multitude of things but what I really like it for is grating horse radish.
I can leave the cover on till the fumes die down >:)

My very old Cuisinart died, recently and DH surprised me with a KA Professional Food Processor. It's really quite large, but has smaller bowls to do things like chop herbs, etc. I am really just getting used to it, but so far, so good. I sure hope I like it as much as my old FP.

redkitty,
Magimix sells their stuff here in USA, I am sure you can get a model with the appropriate voltage in Europe (if they are less expensive).

I feel ashamed by reading all these notes...
I own a Kitchen Aid food processor, the wide mouth 12-cup bowl 760 and is still on the box, never used it. I got it on a clearance sale for $99 but never had the need since I am limited with my countertop space. I guess I need to make some room in my kitchen LOL
