I'd suggest "any woman" that knows how to use a knife.
Hell, I just wish my fiancee could figure out which knife goes in which slot (after five years, she still can't get it right)!

Hell, I've only got a dozen or so (not counting the paring and other small knives).

Maybe I should number them?

Re: What Food Processor to Buy?

Thank you all. I think I have made my choice.

I was going to go with Rebecca Catherine's suggestion but saw another machine on the same page which has a blender attachment as well. 2 in one works well for me. The processor for food items and the blender for frozen margaritas!

Any one have any experience with the brand Ariete?

As for size, any processor with with a capacity between 1 and 2 litres would do me just fine.

p.s. plus it's half price

Re: What Food Processor to Buy?

I love Kitchen Aid Artisan food processor. Check around on toppriese.ch for the best deal (I got mine through www.Hagengrote.ch when they had a special with extra fancy blades in the package deal )

Re: What Food Processor to Buy?

Interesting.
That price looks surreal. It's even cheaper than amazon.de (which is already much cheaper than the German rrp).
They suggest it takes 2-4 weeks to deliver, though.

And I actually need a kitchen large enough to put this beast somewhere.

Re: What Food Processor to Buy?

I'm looking for a medium-to-big Cuisinart food processor. I know that this (or one very similar) exists in a Swiss version, because I saw one, but I can't seem to find any evidence of it being for sale online. Anyone purchased something like this recently?

Re: What Food Processor to Buy?

Conforama had a Cuisinart when I was in there earlier in the week, don't know what model though.

I ended up buying this one:

https://www.conforama.ch/produkt_exp...1100071__42059

and so far most impressed. One question though, for those who've had this style before - is it also good for creaming butter and sugar together for cakes? Presumably using the ordinary mixing blade? I've only ever had Kenwood food processors with sharp blade before. (This made fabulous pizza dough the other night, and we're even managed Staffordshire oatcakes!)

I'm not very sharp on my terminology, but isn't this a mixer, as opposed to a food processor? (And these are both "Küchenmaschinen"?)

Re: What Food Processor to Buy?

You may be right - given that what Americans and Swiss call a "stand mixer" are two completely different machines, I just go by what they are. The Cuisinart I saw was definitely much more like what you linked to (maybe a bit fancier, it had a digital display and stuff)

Kitchen Aid stand mixer, pretty much. My current one is 11 years old (bought European model when we moved here in 2007.) My old US one was even better and still lives somewhere and it‘s at least 20 years old.

Kitchen Aid food processor is more temperamental. The motor is good. The safety catch on the work bowl/container can break. I‘ve had it replaced under warranty already. Novissa is the Swiss kitchen aid supplier and they are pricey. Not sure I would replace it with the same were it to burn out.

For stick-mixers Braun, otherwise Moulinex.
