Like Claire and Leigh, I found I was using my big Cuisinart so seldom I took it off the counter and put it away in a cabinet. I only use it if I'm cooking for a party or a large number of people.
I ended up getting a mini-chop (Hamilton Beach, but I wish now I'd bought the little Cuisinart), which is perfect for the kind of cooking I do -- I actually find that it's often easier to chop by hand, and unless I'm really pressed for time, I enjoy doing it. For big slicing jobs, I've been using my Benriner mandoline; for grating, the Microplane zester/grater; for mixing, usually my KA hand mixer. I always do bread by hand.
I know the Cuisinart is a great machine and I'm glad I have it tucked away, but for just DH and I, it just didn't earn its counter space.
"We reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our founding fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake."
--President Barack Obama, 1/20/09
