Here is my first post of this years, well, actually this is my first year I will be doing this, but I plan to do this every year. Why? Because I have a very difficult time to choose what to give my friends and family this year. Also, this year my husband and I were invited to a secret santa party and I'm actually kinda nervous! lol Also I may win a $25 gift card for writing this post.
This first post will be what I plan on getting my mother! A Food Processor. My mother is a complicated person. She loves her work, she's a Teacher's Assistant and Co-Teacher for the Special Education Department in our district, she also loves her family and our creator, God. She never says no when people ask her to help out with something. She gives so much of herself to others and God. After work she doesn't come home, she visits her elderly parents and helps out as much she can with that. Then she finally comes home and if she has time she will eat a sensible dinner. The other day we were at Macy's and I showed her that I myself bought a food processor recently for the soul purpose of helping me make salads faster. She said that she really didn't see the need for one, but it would be a great convenience to help her out when she makes dinner.
Today there are so many different styles of Food Processors. These are my three favorites at OverStock.com, which is where I will be doing lots of my Christmas shopping from this year.
The first one pictured is the KitchenAid RKFP750ER Empire Red 12-cup Ultra Wide Processor. This one is on the pricey side. It goes for $139.99. The upgraded newer model is over $200. This one you can chop, dice and mince! Mincing is very important in my culture. We make lots of salsa and we are always mincing. It is much better to mince in a food processor than by hand, believe me!
The second one is the Hamilton Beach 70610 Big Mouth Food Processor, $42.99. If you have a big mouth and need to quite it down, this one will do wonders! It will leave you speechless as to all the awesome things it can do. This one is similar to the one I purchased because you can "process" a whole tomato or like in the picture, a cucumber. Just cut off the ends and you are good to go!
The third one is the next one I plan on getting next! It's the Wolfgang Puck BBLFP050 Red 3-in-1 Blender, Food Processor and Juicer! Mid priced at $62.99 it might be the one I'm going to get my mommy! Like it says it's a 3-in-1! The ones that I would compare to this would be way over $100.
Overstock.com and check out their Food Processor section under the Appliance section.
The best thing about food processors is that they are very dependable. From the people that I know have food processors is that they still have the very first one they bought and they still work. I still have the one that we got as a wedding gift and it still works, my sister stole it. Nah, I let her borrow it as a gift to her new apartment. That's another thing, these are great gifts for newlyweds, open houses or as a welcome gift to a new neighbor or what-not. It's also a great hand-me down when you are ready or want to get an upgrade.
