Not all recipe writers are good at it I use what I have that will get the job done. I've been known to skip or combine steps if I think the recipe instructions are inefficient.

I agree completely. The big food processor gets used once or twice a year. The mini prep is very easy to clean, but for small amounts it's the knife. I also have the 4 cup version of the mini prep (2 cups liquid), and will process in batches rather than clean the big one.

I'm not sure why the size of the FP makes a difference. I just give the pieces a quick rinse and into the DW.

Just what I was thinking Janet. It's sure the most authentic tool.

Molcajete, I believe. That's what the Mexicans use. Makes great chimichurri, along with being a good spice grinder.
