Cuisinart 8 Cup Food Processor Times Two - One For Me, and One for You!!

Something kind of awesome happened here yesterday.

While my eyeballs were multi-sensing between third declension noun endings (Latin nerds we are) and cyber Monday deals, I had one hand on the phone and the other swinging between a cold cup of coffee and a hurricane toddler.  Check-marking my way through a list of phone calls that had to be made, I finally arrived at the very last one: "Call Sur-la-Table customer service."

Ugh.  Customer service.  You never know exactly what you're gonna get served, right?

But, people, this is where the awesomeness begins.
Just before Thanksgiving, I decided that in order to keep feeding this small army of men, who are hungry 24/7, I was going to have to rethink my battle plan in the kitchen.  While there's no room for a double oven or a six burner cook top, there is room (well, I can always make room) for a few smaller appliances that can help me zip through the prep work.

With coupon in hand and a free shipping code, I ordered a new food processor...only somewhere in the whole order-pack-ship process, they thought I needed not one, but TWO food processors.  So, yesterday I rang 'em up and requested that they send me a shipping slip so that I could return the second item.

Apparently that was just too much hassle for them.

So, they told me I could KEEP IT!!!!!!!!!!

I felt like I had just won the culinary lottery.

What is one to do with two food processors, exactly?

The third born suggested that he be allowed to disassemble it and use the parts to reconstruct a robot. That seems complicated.  And, dangerous. Blades + electricity = a trip to the ER.  Let's stick with Lego's and play dough.

While the boys discussed whey they thought I should do with my bonus machine, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it, and that's to GIVE IT AWAY TO ONE OF YOU!!!

  12. Thank you so much for your generosity, Susan! We had a food processor when we first got married, but it has loooong since given up the ghost, and we haven't budgeted to replace it. Thank you again! Hope yours helps with your kitchen time. ;)

  13. I have a 15 year old Cuisinart food processor. It's still working but it looks like it's been through the war. I guess I'm hard on my appliances! You are so kind to give this one away. The winner will be getting a great food processor!

  14. This is sooo awesome - and so are you! Instead of selling it on ebay or something and making a bundle, you are being extremely generous and giving it away to bless someone. Thanks for being awesome =)
    I love holiday cooking - especially making new things and sharing them with friends.
    May God bless you and yours this Christmas =)

  15. Oh my gosh, customer service for the win! That's a FANTASTIC problem to have. ;) I love cooking with my mom around Christmas - we always spend a Saturday baking approximately 20 types of Christmas cookies/desserts and it is so much fun. :)

  17. I love the family time... just being. It doesn't really matter what we're doing (although a board or card game tops my favorites list). Life is changing so much right now that I'm craving traditions and consistency, especially at holiday time.

  18. the joy of cooking with the small boys... ummmm...

    I love cooking when they're napping and surprising them with goodies when they're awake. :)

    Happy Advent. :)

  22. Very generous! I'm looking on revamping my kitchen plan for the new year!

  23. I love cooking special treats for the neighbors during the holidays. My current food process is from the eighties (hand me down from parent's friends years ago) so a functional one with buttons that work (and no need to flip switches with a butter knife) would be lovely.

  24. Oh how fun! And generous! I could definitely use this...I'm using one I got at a garage sale years ago and it does the job, but barely. : )

  26. How lucky are you!?! And as lucky as you are, you are 10 times sweeter to offer it as a prize. I have never done raffle copter before, so I have no idea if I did it properly.
    I have a cheap, tiny processor that I got as a wedding gift, I think. A bigger, better one would be lovely!

  27. What I love most about holiday cooking: eating it. Does that count?

    Really another thing that I love is watching my girls make sugar cookies with their grandmother every year. It's such a mess but they so look forward to it.

  28. I would love this! Getting ready to do a bunch of freezer meals, and it would be much faster to use a food processor!

  29. I LOVE trying new recipes! I'm not so sure the rest of the family is on board with it, but I am! I also do the holiday theme thing to over kill status. Example: pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin chili, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin oatmeal... :-) Just to make sure I enjoy it to the max.
