most used cuisinart blade?

I recently bought a new 14-cup Cuisinart that was missing its blades - (hence the $20 price) after, of course, checking online to be sure I could buy replacement blades.

So, of all the selection of shredder/slicer blades (besides the main one), what one do you use the most?

  1. I was going to suggest I send you mine--I never use them--but mine is a midget compared to yours! 8 or 10 cups, I think. You must feed a crowd!

    1. I seldom use anything except the main blade and shredder - the ones that come with the machine. I use the slicer sometimes, to slice big piles of vegetables for salads, or citrus for marmalades. But that's about once a year. I got the full set of blades when I got my Cuisinart decades ago and most have never been taken out of the box.

      1. The steel knife and the larger grater. I do have other slicing blades and do like the 1mm for home made potato chips but I also have a mandoline and find that as simple sometimes.

        1. I only use 3, the basic, the shredder and the dough blade. I have made pizza dough in the Cusinart more times than I can count.

          1. I only use the main one...I don't think a cuisinart does an very good job for anything requiring the other blades.
