I broke down and bought a small-ish food processor, this one is a Cuisinart. It had good reviews from America’s Test Kitchen. It’s handy, light, easy to store and use. The 2 buttons are marked chop and grind, one makes the blade rotate clockwise, and the other the opposite. The cover is a bit stiff both locking and unlocking so you have to hold tight with the other hand. It may loosen up with use.
