This is the standard metal chopping blade that comes with all Cuisinart Food Processors. It is a stout, sharp workhorse that you probably use 80% of the time.
It is great for things like salad dressings, pie doughs, pesto, hummus or just chopping garlic. It also makes short work of grating hard cheese and making flours.
Concerned about meat safety? Make your own chopped beef, pork and more for hamburgers and chili!
