    This is the food processor I have Amazon.com: KitchenAid KFP0922CU 9-Cup Food Processor with Exact Slice System - Contour Silver: Kitchen & Dining
    This is the large 9 cup model but there is a smaller less expensive model, too.

    It works great for us. If you look through the pictures you can see all the many options for blades and slicing/shredding.
    The reason I purchased this one is because of those options and because it has an inset tube on the top with a tiny hole so that you can drizzle in oils without any effort. You pour your oil in the tube and it drizzles itself in while you blend. That was important for me because my son had a soy allergy and getting mayo without soy in it is difficult and/or expensive. This way I could make mayonnaise. But I discovered the drizzle feature is really nice for adding cold water to pie crust dough, oil to hummus, oils to homemade salad dressing, oil and or cream to fresh tomatoes for a quick pasta sauce, etc.

    Dbsam - how cool is that! You have a food processor already and didn't know it. Since you were mainly interested in slicing/shredding and not blending, that should perfectly meet your needs. That's awesome. Enjoy it and let us know what you make.

    I need to stay away from late night online shopping!

    Oh, do I know the hazards of late night television infomercials and on-line ads! I own almost every As Seen On TV product, though I am getting better about it...I still buy them, but in stores rather than the late night telephone calls. Saves me a bit of money as I no longer purchase all the add-ons that the telemarketers want to sell you.

    While we're on the topic of slicing and dicing. Does anyone know what this is? My dad was the cook in our family. When he died, my mom gave me this and it has been in my pantry for ten years. I've never tried to use it and am not sure what I would do with it.



    Food processor recommendations would be appreciated!
    Some of the pieces look like a meat grinder - for making sausage filling or ground meat.

    I have one that I use for one thing - slicing really thin potato slices. I make a lasagna with them. I have decent knife skills (worked in a kitchen at one point) but I can't get uniform, super thin potato slices without a mandoline. I have the pampered chef one, and it has a guard that has prevented my clumsy self from injury.

    I bought an inexpensive mandolin for making kraut and other ferments. I love my food processor but I hate washing it, and although my knife skills aren't terrible, finely slicing many heads of cabbage with my chef's knife gets flipping OLD. And yes, I use The Glove. I am way accident-prone and have seen the inside of enough ERs to last me a while.

    And I think that's a food mill.
