Keep or sell? Kitchenaid blender and food processor
So I just happened to be on one of those flash sale sites and lucked into an absurd deal for KitchenAid appliances ($7.33 each, brand new). I already am going to be selling the stand mixer I got, since I have a better one, but I'm vacillating on what to do with the food processor and the blender.
The blender: http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-KSB4...
I don't have a full-size food processor now, so I'd LOVE to have one on hand, especially for making pie dough. I like the fact that this model comes with a mini-processor attachment, since I know we often are making smaller amounts of things. I also know, however, that the KitchenAid FP has some mixed reviews and a lot of people prefer Cusinart or something else. Should I sell this and use the proceeds for another model?
We have a random Hamilton Beach blender that I don't use very often, but is pretty lame when I do. It gets the job done, but usually involves a lot of stirring and poking on my part. Once again, the KitchenAid gets some mixed reviews. Not sure if I should keep it or not.
Thanks for any input!
I say keep them both. I have a KA food processor and blender. The food processor is not amazing, but it works well and I do not feel the need to replace it even though I can afford to. I recently bought a new KA blender and saw mixed reviews beforehand. There were complaints that it was loud, but I've never seen a blender that isn't! I'd say my KA is quieter than my mother's cheap one and my sisters Breville. When dealing with ice I find the ice hitting the sides of the jar louder than the actual blender. It works really well and I'm pleased with it.
