This claims to be the best food proccessor around.
Dose any one else here own one? and do you love it? a lot of raw recipes call for food proccesors so I would like your input, thanks ;)

No. I've got something similar which Bo got me by mistake which I absolutely love: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005MF97/ref=ase_dancingdragonrev/103-8775465-2808651?v=glance&s=kitchen
I also have the Cuisinart mini-chopper which seems quite close to this one.
The one you're looking at seems quite versatile. Hmmm. Holds 6 oz. of food. Seems 'bout the same size as the mini. If you choose to get it, let us know how ya like it, 'k?
Not sure of the differences though.

Well, it seems inexpensive, but I learned way back when, that You get what you pay for, so I ALWAYS buy the most expensive one with all the warrantees, gadgets etc.
I love my handheld bamix, which has a small hopper that works just like the one on the website you listed, it cost $200 but is worth every penny, I take it traveling with me, and it works as a blender, food processor, spice grinder, nut butter maker, ice cream maker etc, just in small batches, about 1 cup or so, has 3 cool blades, easy on and off.
I think Alissa says you can buy a black and decker food processor at Kmart for about $40, and save on all that shipping cost.
What ever you decide--- good luck

I use the Magic Bullet and absolutely love it. And to supplement it, because it does have trouble grinding nuts, I bought a $28 food processor at Walmart, which so far I have no problems with. ;)

I also use the Magic Bullet, but mainly for making salad dressing, and omelettes for the fam. I've never been able to find a do-it-all processor. Sometimes you want something shedded, grated, sliced, etc. Then you need a v-slice or mandolin, and a grating attachment, not just a chopper. Sometimes you want a handheld blender that you can dip in a bowl to blend stuff smooth. Then you need something different to make angel hair zuchinni with. I have a lot of different gadgets myself.
The latest one I got is the alligator chopper - it dices onions uniformly in one motion. It can also be used for red peppers, etc.

I've used this one and I fried it. Meaning it went kaput after just a few uses because it couldn't handle dates.
I have a bullet which is very powerful.

I had an Ultimate Chopper...I say 'had' because it went ca-put on me pretty quick. I wasn't impressed with its performance either, just my opinion.
