This is the Cadillac of food processors! I used it for everything on my Christmas menu. The crust for the cheese cake, the batter of the cheese cake, the paste for my prime rib, shredded cheese and chopped spinach for my spinach artichoke dip, and everything worked perfectly. I cannot wait to do a pie crust in it! Oh, I am so thrilled with this food processor, it is a dream come true.
