We are looking to buy a food processor for our daughter....maybe for a Christmas gift or maybe just for helping us in the garden and doing so much canning. My wife doesn't have one, so we have no experience to draw from (might get one for her, too)... but dw's sister brought hers over and they made pepper relish. Canned 24 pints of it and dw and dd just went on and on about how nice it was to use.... So first of all is it something they would get a lot of use out of? If not what would you guys recomend instead?.... If you think a food processor would be a good gift, what kind, model #, etc??... btw I've got a call in to dw's sis to find out about hers. Thanks!
