I need some advice....I am trying to decide if I should invest in ONLY one of the above.....so I'd like some feedback as to which one ( or combination) would be the most effective and efficient for me. I am single - so I'm not cooking for a family - but I love to cook and eat healthily. Or should I go all out and eventually purchase both.
Would having a Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer and a Mandoline be a better combination for all-around usage?
Or would the combination of the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and Cuisinart Food Processor be a better overall combination.
I know they each have their own strengths - but I would like to be able to make breads/pizza doughs/muffins/cakes/pastries - and still be able to make sauces/gravies/mashed veggies and do slicing/shredding of veggies.
