This easy-to-use 4-cup chopper/grinder works a lot like a regular food processor, but without having to lug out the full-size machine. Its durable 4-cup work bowl provides ample space for many everyday kitchen tasks such as grinding pine nuts for a batch of pesto, pureeing soup or baby food, or chopping onions and green peppers to throw onto a homemade pizza. The unit's auto-reversing SmartPower blade comes with a sharp edge for chopping and pureeing soft foods, plus a blunt edge for grinding up nuts, spices, and other harder foods. Even more, its BladeLock system keeps the blade securely in place during operation and when pouring. Other highlights include a simple touchpad control panel with "chop" and "grind" options, an easy-grip handle, and dishwasher-safe parts for quick cleanup. A spatula and recipe/instruction book come included.
