    I have one that I asked for from our wedding registry but I haven't used it yet. Any ideas on what to use it for besides coleslaw? That's all I remember my mom using it when I was a child! :haha:

    Thank you in advance for your suggestions!

    Oh I'm not sure! I just cook up chicken tenders, put some celery, some onions, seasonings, and mayonnaise in it. I'm sure there could be a healthier and more creative version out there on the internet.

    I use mine to shred spinach for stuffed shells. Also, I use it to grind up gingersnaps for cheesecake crusts.

    I don't know what I would use it for, but I want one! I know there are a lot of recipes I throw away because it needs one.

    I make hummus in my blender right now. I could definitely use it for that.

    I used my tiny one when I made banana bread or strawberry shortcake to chop up the strawberries.

    Pesto, pie crusts, salsas, maridanes and sauces, mushrooms for mushroom soup, creamed soups, and the list goes on . . .

    pesto, hummus, chop up mushrooms that I add to sauces, making creamed soup, pureeing cooked carrots that I add to mac and cheese from a box (thank you Sneaky Chef for that tip!), and more that I just can't think of at the moment. I certainly don't use it daily, but I'm very glad to have one.

    My favourite use for mine is to make smoked fish pate.

    I use smoked mackeral but any smoked fish would do it.

    Skin the fish and break into pieces and place in the processor.

    Use cream cheese such a Philidelphia about 200g for every 2 fillets of fish, add to processor

    Add the juice of a lemon and some dried Dill weed. Grind in some black pepper to taste.

    Give the machine a good whirl until the mixture is like a paste.

    Scoop out into moulds or small dishes and place in the fridge to cool.

    Serve with cold toasted brown bread cut into fingers with a slice of lemon or lime.
