I have a large cuisinart food processor and while i love it, i needed something smaller for cutting onions because they make me cry and i cut them daily. This 4 cup is ideal for that purpose. It is quick, has a pulse and a grind. There are two small holes in the top that make this ideal for making salad dressings or mayonnaise. It has a strong motor and takes up very little cupboard space. Ideal for small spaces like mine.
