Hmm. When looking at food processors... Do we go with the 3 1/2 cup size, or the 9 cup? I'm not sure we'd really use the full capacity of the 9c model, and it's over $100 more expensive... Hm.

We have gift certificates for Crate and Barrel, which is why I'm looking. :D

I've got a little tiny 3 cup one, it seems to meet all my needs and it's small enough to fit out of the way.

Yeah, I'm looking for something to make pizza dough, stuff like that for 2. Maybe the larger one will be better.. hm.

We have a Cuisinart 12-cup and a little 3-cup Black and Decker. Each of them have their own uses, but don't judge the large size by its stated capacity. For really good mixing power, you can put at most 4-6 cups in a 12 cup food processor before it starts to get bogged down (or slopping out the sides). The larger capacity one will also naturally have more power, which makes a huge difference when it comes to dealing with thick batters/purees/dips/etc. My advice is to buy the largest capacity you can afford - you'll thank yourself later.

This is a very helpful page for choosing which one - I really like that site in general :-)

go for the bigger one. If you intend to do liquids in it, you can maybe do 1/3rd the bowl volume.. which is not all that much.

I found mine at one of those department store discounter places for about 50 off. Don't scrip, though... cheap ones will make you regret the purchase. I recommend Cuisinart all the way. None of the black and decker crap, or sunbeam, which I have both replaced. :P Those things could not shred cheese without breaking.

Yeah, we have a handful of gift certificates that I'm thinking of using, and the only brand they carry is Cuisinart....which... that's my preferred. :D Black and Decker is spread out too thin. :>

I think you need the massive Kitchenaid 12-cup 700-watt one that'd likely shake the kitchen and make the lights dim. If it can't puree rock, it's not enough power. :D

Hee. I don't know that our circuitry would handle that. :)

I'd get the bigger one, especially if it comes with one of those little bowl inserts for smaller jobs.
