Also, I might mention, that the reason we need a new one is because the power shaft of our Kitchenaid food processor is stuck inside one of the blades and it seems that it might be cheaper to get a new (and better) processor than to try to repair this one. Especially since we were having so many problems with it anyway.
I have a Braun Combimax that's been going for 10+ years. For the past few years I think I've used it every single day. It has two containers, and comes with shredding and slicing blades as well as the standard S-blade.
Though if you can afford a Magimix, that would be a great way to go.
