    Someone would surely read that, and go "Thank God I have other people like me"

    Costco for Vitamix. They often have sales on food processors and stand mixers too.

    Oooh such nice replies!! Thanks everyone for pitching in!

    Best idea ever, if only....

    @armummy :worship2: noting everything you said!

    Why do you need to chop any veggie then, my dear! ;) Precut veggies or ask H to do it:) And when he finishes, ask him to load/unload the dishwasher too, if you MUST cook.:beer-toast1:

    Mandolin slicers seem to do the job... but it is still manual work he he he... So I am tilting towards a good FP. Like many mentioned, having to weigh the use of it vs the cleaning which can be bothersome.. got some good tips here. Some FP videos show that after using you can just add dish soap into the FP (a little!) and whish it around too..
    I do have a 2-cup FP from H's bachelor days...and use it only to make tomato paste and chop up spinach.

    @armummy if you would upload a video here or on youtube with a demo, esp with tricky veggies like beans, okra... so many hapless women like me would be truly benefitted!

    So, thanks to this thread, I bought the Cuisinart Elemental 13-cup food processor with dicing kit. The price is good - $99. Is this good enough for basic use like for beans, spinach, onion, carrot, cabbage? No plans to make roti atta (dough) with it. Will use it for meal-prep or cooking 4-5 dishes twice a week with OPOS and OPOS staples.

    Is it good enough or should I look for more options in sales coming up?

    dicing kit is a must I think

    try to also see if you have an option of adjusting slicing disk thickness , the normal one would slick quite thin. With thickness

    Thanks bubbles , I had some videos but editing is a bit consuming process. I will try.

    I think you will have some videos available on YouTube already ....Amulet posted one

    @Rihana please post your reviews after using it . Husband will get extremely antsy to see one more appliance in the counter . Counter is overflowing so have banned myself from buying anything unless absolutely necessary. Please do tell if you like it
