I just bought a nutribullet 7 cup on Amazon for $80. It's smaller than some of the other models, and most of the blades store inside the cup. The only piece I have to store separately is the spiral cut attachment. It comes with a processing blade, a dough blade, and two reversible blades for thick or thin shredding or slicing. I've only used it a few times and I like it. We had a bulkier cuisinart, but it stopped working awhile back. I had been using a tiny 2 cup processor with only one blade. So, it was time to upgrade.

Wow 7-cups is a lot !

Not really. A lot of the other models I looked at were double that size.

Yes but my requirement - the topic of this thread - is as compact a storage size as possible

And you also required it to be big enough for family meals?

As I mentioned, I have a compact 2 cup processor that isn't big enough to do most of the things I want. Last thanksgiving we had leftover turkey and I decided to use this little food processor to chop it up to freeze. I had to do it in 8-10 parts.

There is going to be a balance of size, price and use. That's up to you to decide which takes priority. I just shared my experience. Do with it as you please.

Yes and thank you.

7 cups would likely be on the large side.

I expect 3-4 cups is what I'll end up with.

The immersion / wand idea seems to be a way to maybe get best of both worlds.

As I mentioned, we had a cuisinart that was an older model. I think we got it as a wedding gift 30 years ago. We didn't use it much until recently. But, it stopped working after sitting in the cupboard for 25 years. So, I wouldn't give the cuisinart high grades based on my experience. Time will tell with the Nutribullet.

I did buy the 4 yr extended warranty for $10. Just in case.

Sounds wise.

Hoping the crowdsourced time machine works
