We have a more expensive food processor that I use for most things, but we bought the KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor, because my husband is a fan of EXTREMELY hot peppers and putting them in sauces and hummus, and when he used our only food processor, I found it took three or four washes to get the pepper residue out of the processor. So I insisted we get a separate processor, so that my taste buds would not wither and die. The KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor has been great, it slices and dices his peppers, brings together hummus ingredients, is great for salsas and chutneys. It is easy to assemble and disassemble, easy to clean, and doesn't take up much storage space. It also comes with a 1 year warranty, which is great, because a lot of small appliances are only warrantied for 90 days! So if you're looking for a versatile, effective food processor, but not looking to spend too much cash, the KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor is a great choice!
