Could the Bosch mixer w/ newer shred/slice attachment replace my large food processor?
I hope this is the right location for this thread. It falls into both "off topic" and "equipment" so I chose the latter.
I'm seriously considering getting the Bosch Universal Plus mixer over the other options for reasons I won't go into just cause I'm sure you've heard them all (works better for dense breads than some, but costs less than others, and has good customer support supposedly).
I don't have a lot of cupboard space so am very intrigued by the possibility of being able to get rid of my Cuisinart food processor and putting the Bosch mixer in its place. This would only work though if I could do the same things with the newer shredder-slicer attachment (that sits over the main big bowl) that I can with the Cuisinart.
Aside from making pie dough which I know I can use the Bosch mixer for (and shredding which I know the shredding blades would do well on the attachment) I use the Cuisinart to chop fruit and veggies into chunks, including firm berries (not wanting to completely liquify them).
Does anyone here have experience with this attachment (or one of the main blades for the bowl re. food-chopping) and know if it can really chop up food as opposed to just thinly slicing or shredding?
