I need to get one but I don't know what to look for. I have seen some at walmart for $30 and one for $70.
The only difference I see is the one that is $70 will puree. Do I need this feature?
on another note I love salads but I hate all the cutting I got a salad maker from walmart for $15 it chopps everything up for you into a nice big salad bowl.

it depends on how much you plan on using it and what your checkbook looks like. if you can get a good one, go for it.
i got a new heavy duty processor for christmas and when i opened it, you would think that i opened up a new car!! lol. i am still excited to use it. quite comical to the hubby. :)

my husband makes fun of the names and he gets a kick out of it too when i get a new raw applience. I'm getting a dehydrator next and he says, "What's it called again, a regurgitator?" He's such a goober.

I have a cuisinart food processor and I think it's definately worth it to buy a good, durable one. I use mine all the time and it saves so much time. One thing to consider is the volume capacity - mine is 7 cups and I love how I can make a big batch of something and then not have to make it again for a while. I used to have a really tiny processor and had to do recipes in "batches" and that was really inconvenient. I would say, try to get the best quality for what you can afford when it comes to appliances.

I love my cuisunart, and would be lost without it. I throw in so many things and it does a great job. I have also used it for over 10 years, pretty consistently.

i have an 11 cup Kitchenaid which is incredible, but sometimes I wish I had a 14 cup food processor. If you are planning to do a lot of recipes, big recipes, like coleslaw and things to fill up a dehydrator and if you think you'll ever be doing food prep for more than 3 people, I highly recommend going for a 14 cup one.

I have a tiny cuisinart which I love for doing small jobs .. chopping a few ingredients to add to another recipe, making nutbutter, etc. Plus I have a larger cheap processor I bought at Walmart. (can't remember the brand). The larger processer has a food chute, so you can dump things right into a bowl - which is a nice feature but takes up a lot of counterspace.
My recommendation is to get the sturdiest food processor you can afford with a decent sized bowl on it . I've already cracked the cheaper walmart one I have, but my little cuisinart is hanging in there. And it doesn't have to have a lot of buttons and gadgets on it ... on, off, pulse is all you really need.

i did get the cheaper wao-mart processer (black & decker). I have used it a ton and it still keeps on truckin'. I love it. It's the same on ALissa uses in her video. Very easy to clean and it chops up really rough stuff.
