So about this KitchenAid...(GIVEAWAY!)

KitchenAid is known mainly, at least to me for their stand mixers (their professional 6-qt model being another goody of theirs I would kill to own, sorry ol' faithful HamBeach), but the KA folks have brought out this new model of food processor just in time for Christmas! Here's the description (from their website):
An externally adjustable sliding blade coupled with exceptional performance ensures controlled and precise slicing, chopping and pureeing to help create a meal experience that brings the whole family together.
KEY FEATURES:
  • New external adjustable, stainless steel slicing disc provides ultimate versatility
  • Dual shredding disc easily flips the disc from 2mm to 4mm to achieve ideal slicing thickness
  • Large 13-cup (2.75L) leak-proof work bowl, plus chef’s bowl and mini bowl to efficiently
  • Ultra Wide Mouth Feed Tube™ adjusts to 3 different sizes to accommodate foods of varying sizes, including whole potatoes and cucumbers
  • 17 precise food processing options for speed-controlled slice, shred, chop & puree functions plus three maximized slice, shred and puree/chop blades and bonus dough, egg whip & Julienne blades
  • 4 speed-controlled functions
  • Comfort design side handle allows easy viewing while the food processor is in use


Need I say wow? Probably the most useful element of this in my kitchen is the wide feed tube, but the processing options are quite intriguing! It's a bit out of my price range right now (at just under $400 CDN) but that doesn't mean YOU can't get one for FREE! That's right, it's giveaway time!

The wonderful people from KitchenAid have given me the opportunity to give one of you (Canadian only, sorry!) foodies out there the amazing Christmas gift of a brand new KitchenAid 13-Cup Food Processor. Free. No strings attached (though I'd love to know what you do with it if you win!).
So what do you have to do?
  1. Browse through my blog and tell me in the comments which recipe using a food processor (or conceivably using one like grating, fine chopping, or pureeing) would be your favourite one to try. You must do this one to qualify for any other entries for this one.
Additional entries (please leave a separate comment for each one):
  • Tweet about this giveaway with the line: "@jo_jo_ba is giving away a BRAND NEW KitchenAid Food Processor!" and the link to this post.
  • Tell me your favourite small kitchen appliance or gadget (not a food processor) is and why.
There you go! Three chances to get your hands on this gorgeous gift!

Giveaway ends on Saturday, November 26, 2011.
Note: I have not personally recieved any payment or other reimbursement for this promotion. Winners will recieve direct shipment from KitchenAid of a new 13-cup processor.
