It wasn’t until college and celebrating my first Hannukah with Beka did I ever really understand the beauty, utility and absolute necessity of a food processor. You wanna shred 15 pounds or more of potatoes by hand for a bunch of latke loving college kids? I sure as heck don’t want to spend 8 crazy nights peeling, and shredding potatoes – I wanna spin that dreidel and actually enjoy my brisket!

After that experience of a night full of latke making, my eyes were opened to the possiblities that you can do more with a food processor than just shred potatoes.

*Also I want you to know that for some unwordly reason, my fingers aren’t working this morning and I can’t seem to type “shred” without adding an extra “d” to it. It’s going to be one of those days. *

Now that I have a full size food processor of my own, I’m shredding things like crazy! 2 pound block of cheese? Done.

Pie crusts? Whamo! So many years of toiling and ruining pie crusts doing them the “old fashioned way” with a pastry blender, Puh-leezzee. I get two crusts done in five minutes and they’re better than what I can get at the store. Especially now that I figured out all the tips and tricks for getting my crusts done in style. And butter. Duh.

Pie – in all forms just makes the world go ’round. Its is quite possibly the best dessert. This Cranberry Dutch Apple Pie just happens to be my new fangled favorite – and its perfect for the holiday season.

Doors opened, eyes seeing the light and so on and so forth.  

KitchenAid has so generously donated a 13 cup food processor to one Country Cleaver winner and pie lover. Not that you only have to make pie crusts with this beauty, but I just love my food processor for it and I know you will, too.


The Food processor comes with a dough blade, for your crusts, a multipurpose blade, a  reversible shredder, an adjustable slicing disc that allows you to make slices between 2 and 4 milimeters AND (because there were doubts that this things was totally freakin’ awesome?)  – the whole things is BPA free and Dishwasher Safe.

I know, mind blown.

This beauty will get you in and out of the kitchen in no time flat so that you can enjoy the holidays with those you hold dear. But if you don’t want to spend more time than necessary with the crazy in-laws, out-laws and people you call “family”, than this giveaway isn’t for you. Sike! Enter away friends!

And don’t forget about the other 4 Days of Christmas that we’re celebrating right now! Including a box of USA Pears, a Smith’s Edgeware Knife Sharpener Set, a Bodum French Press and a LeCreuset Espresso and Cream and Sugar Set!
