We were given the Lectrix Saladxpress Food Processor as a wedding present but it looked to me like just a basic salad spinner which I've never used so I tossed it in our basement where it stayed for two years. Finally I took it out one day out of curiousity and as I read the instruction manual I was amazed at all of the functions that this machine can perform! It goes much beyond spinning salad- it can chop vegetables, fruit, meat, etc. It can also grate cheese very quickly which I love because I always buy a block of cheese and using a hand grater can take so long! There are different attachments which can slice vegetables very thin and evenly and they turn out much better than if I tried to cut them by hand! I am still experimenting with my saladxpress and it seems like i learn new functions everyday that make my life much easier when it comes to cooking. You will not regret this purchase!
