Is This Really Worth an Extra $69.99?
This morning I was greeted in my email by Amazon. They like to send me deals they know I will like. I have been pondering getting a food processor for a couple a years now. I am a little concerned I will not use it enough and I am worried that with the limited space in my little kitchen I will not have a place to put it. Eeeks!
So I want to ask you… Which One is the Best Value?
Lets look at the stats…
- 450-watt food processor for slicing, dicing, chopping, mincing, grating, and more
- 8-cup-capacity work bowl; continuous-flow feed chute with pusher; on and off/pulse buttons
- Safety interlock system; suction-cup feet; cord storage; dishwasher-safe parts
- Includes stainless-steel chopping blade and reversible slicing/shredding disc
- Measures 11-2/7 by 7-4/5 by 15-2/3 inches
- Includes steel blade, dough blade, slicing disc, and shredding disc
- Extra-large feed tube for larger food slices
- Dishwasher-safe parts
- Five-year full motor warranty, three-year limited entire unit warranty
Looks like the Cuisinart has the larger feeding tube, dough hook and a warranty, but the Black & Decker has a larger cup capacity and includes all the features of the Cuisinart minus the dough hook which I do not really need because I have a knock of version of the Bosch.
So which one would you choose?
I would love your feedback if you have any. Have you tried one or the other?
When buying the cheaper brand goes wrong…
Ha ha so speaking of Bosch. Almost everyone in my family owns one. One year for a Christmas/One Year Wedding Anniversary my mom wanted to get me a nice mixer. I went to a store that carried the Bosch. She told me to pick out the Bosch or it’s knock of competitor and she would buy it for me. I looked them both over compared the features and chose the knock off because it was less expensive and I felt bad about the money my mom was spending. Turns out the knock of competitor went out of business a few years later so I have never been able to buy additional attachments for it like the food processor attachments.
Now Black & Decker is not necessarily a knock off like I am referring to in my story. I just wanted to give an example of when saving money up front does not pay off in the long run.
When buying the cheaper brand pays off…
Jewelry – When I go to LA I love to go to the Fashion District and get fashion jewelry for only $1! It totally beats paying full price at the mall or wherever else. Even if it does not last long it is no big deal because by the time it is broken it is probably out of style anyway.
So what are some of YOUR examples of when it is or isn’t worth saving the money upfront?
