It takes time to find your way about the kitchen. We start off at a young age making peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and then progress from there. Before you know it, we graduate to mac and cheese and then with this introduction to the stovetop, the world becomes the limit. Riding tandem to this development is a constantly growing knowledge of kitchen equipment. As we learn what we can do, we learn what our gear can (and cannot) do. When it comes to food processors, it doesn't take long to figure out that the big bowl is sometimes just too big.
Many of us have resorted to using a separate, less voluminous food processor for smaller jobs. Eventually, like kitchen knowledge, the equipment catches up. Saving time and space, the Hamilton Beach Model 70579 Big Mouth Duo 14-Cup Food Processor offers two workbowls for the price of one. Actually, a little less than the price of one: an upgrade on a previous model, the new version has a lower MSRP.
Familiar features we have all come to expect in our food processors are accounted for. The two workbowls (5-cup and 14-cup) nest together for easy storage. In use, a large feed tube minimizes prep time by allowing for larger items to be processed. The 525-watt processor comes with a reversible slicing/shredding disc as well as a chopping/mixing blade. Complete with recognizable operation of three speeds and pulse function, the food processor with a release date of October 2010 won't take long to learn what it can do.
