5: Food Processors
Don't risk it, man!
Don't risk it, man!

You're tired of dicing, slicing, chopping, whipping and blending all your food by hand, so you've finally splurged on a food processor. You've got plans for a whole slew of meals. Everything from tomatoes to potatoes will bow before the mighty power of your food processor! Onions won't stand a chance; garlic will be a goner.

After you drool your way through the grocery store, you head home to get started straightaway. Choosing to begin with a tantalizing creamy butternut squash, green apple and curry soup, you're dismayed when some of the apple jams up the food processor.

You probably don't need to stop and read something on the side of the box before you do. It's a legal warning that says: "Never remove food or other items from the blades while the product is operating." Yikes.
