Food Processor

I've read about how great food processors are.  But, I haven't spent the money for one.  Instead a got a Universal Food Grinder for $7.50 at a antique store.  It was in beautiful condition, in the original box, with 3 attachments.  It's great for making chicken salad, ham salad, etc. and I use it for chopping all the veggies for relish, salsa, or spaghetti sauce when I'm canning a big batch.   I also have one of these Baby Food Grinders - so great for preparing foods from what's already in the fridge - never have to buy baby food ; )
I found a Griscer Vegetable Cutter at a yard sale last week.  It looked like new, still in the box, 4 attachments, and even a sales receipt for one of the cones too ; )  I'm not sure what to do with it yet.  There was no manual with it to give me ideas.
Have any of you used one of these?  Do you have any good recipes?  I read one Etsy seller who said her mom used it to make cole slaw - I'll have to try that this Summer some time ; )

I don't have one of those but the attachments look a lot like the attachments for my mixer. I use those to grate and slice things like cheese and potatoes.

Here is a video that will give you a idea how to use it. [o= I have a Salad Master and it looks very much the same.

I hope this helped you.

Perfect! Thank you! The apple part was so neat - I have to try that! : )

neat - much more attractive than my food processor (although I do dearly love it).

That's exactly what my mother always used for large chopping/shredding jobs. I remember her using it to make sauerkraut or coleslaw. She shredded big piles of cheese with it. The slicing cone was used to make thin slices of potato for scalloped potatoes. My absolute favorite application was shoe string potato fries made by running potatoes through the largest shredding cone.
