I have a large Kitchen Aide food processor from 1993. But after doing some research last year, I wouldn't recommend them to be purchased today. My old one was built by Magimix and has hardier parts. Last years research indicated they are now a lower quality manufacturing.
Magimix Robot is still a very high quality food processor sold under their own brand name. But they are expensive.
I use my large one for pie crusts, making cauliflower mash, salsas, large amounts of grating or chopping, and mixing up large quantities of meatball mix, or bread crumbs.
For small jobs, I have a Cuisinart immersion blender that has the ability to attach to a 1or2 cup bowl for chopping. Good for small amounts of onion/vegetable chopping, bread crumbs, or herbs. Or when I need large quantities of chopped garlic or to make small batches of horseradish.
