On a recent visit to Costco, I spied the Cuisinart Power Blend Duet, a blender and food processor in one.  I’m of the school of do-one-thing-and-do-it-well, so I’m surprised that this caught my fancy.  In The Littlest Kitchen, multipurpose can be a plus.  I don’t really need a blender since I still have my parent’s vintage one from the 60s which is still kicking, but sometimes I do wish it was smaller like this shorter and squatter jar from Cuisinart.  The food processing bowl is only 3-cups, which isn’t quite big enough for pie crusts, something that I’m hoping do in the future.   Like the 24-packs of toilet paper at Costco, do I really need it?

It got me thinking that what I really need is interchangeable bowls for the many tasks and quantities of food processing – chopped vegetables, pestos, hamburgers, dips, etc.  A little more vetting on Cook’s Illustrated revealed that the Kitchenaid KFP750 would probably suit me best with its 12-cup and 4-cup bowls.  I also like that it only has three buttons – on, off, and pulse. – compared to Cuisinart’s seven.  Practicality gives way to temptation.
