I don't think we can reason that just because we eat one part of the plant (root), the rest (leaves) must be safe. Poisonous rhubarb leaves vs. the delicious, tangy stalks are an exception that comes to mind.

I cannot live without my mini cuisinart! I use it for cutting in butter when making biscuits. The small bowl size means no giant chunks of butter can escape the blade (like they do in my bigger model).

I also use my 5.5qt Le Creuset dutch oven weekly, if not daily.
