    Thumbs up Food processors are a must in my kitcehn

    Do you have one.

    I've had mine now for going on 20 years and its the best little appliance I've ever had. It works like a workhorse and I use it for everything and if it ever quits, I'll be out the door purchasing a new one immediately.

    I use mine for everything. It has paid for itself over and over again.

    Gabe last year bought me a nice one. I posted asking what the heck to do with it. LOL
    We have used it for grating cheese, but I prefer my little hand grater.
    I think I will use it for hm babyfood though and maybe salsa or cole slaw.
    What else? Help me out here. LMAO

    I use mine for:

    - grating cheese. I purchase the cheese in large blocks, shred it and then freeze it.

    - slicing cucumbers, onions for making pickles/relish

    - slicing potatoes to make chips

    - grating cabbage and carrots for making coleslaw

    - I've even used it for mixing a cake mix in before I got my KA.

    Anything I need to slice, dice, shred I use it.

    DH bought me one recently and to tell the truth, I am not even sure what all to use it for. What do you all use your food processors to make?

    I use mine to chop onions and other veggies for soup. I don't use it all that often, but I'm glad I have it!

    Unfortunately Homesteadmamma is no longer around. I'm sure you can google how to make them or look it up on ehow or cooks.com.

    I use the slicing side of my box grater to get thin slices for homemade potato chips

    But what do you do with the slices to make them into chips? Bake? Fry? Season?

    I heat about half an inch of oil in a big skillet and place the potatoes in a single layer (have to work in batches). Just keep an eye on them and when they just start to brown, flip 'em over.

    Tranfer them to a paper towel lined plate and season any way you choose (I love sea salt and black pepper).

    Just made these the other night for dinner!
