I decided to write this because I didn't want any other person to make the same mistakes I did when I bought my first food processor. I knew I really wanted one when I visited my sister and watched how easy it was for her to get prep work done for dinner using hers.
The only people in her household are her husband and herself, so the food processor she had wasn't a very big one. When I purchased my processor, I bought the same size. That was my first mistake. I found that the four cup amount that it produced was no where near enough for my family of five, so I had to do everything twice at least.
What I found out about six months later was that the motor in the one I bought was not nearly strong enough for the amount of time I was using it in one dinner preparation. It seemed to want to overheat before I was finished and the food would often come out too mushy.
I finally decided that I had apparently bought the wrong one for my needs. I visited a page I found online, ttp://luxuryofthepharaohs.com/best-food-processor/, and then I knew exactly why I was not satisfied with my first purchase. I needed a much bigger motor, a bigger cup size and a bigger food chute! Now that I have one that fits the size of my family, I enjoy cooking more than ever!
