I bought a cheap food processor, I think it was a Black and Decker. I was very disappointed. It just wouldn't chop veggies reliably and was a pain to clean. I returned it to Walmart where I bought it. I now just chop veggies with a good, sharp chef's knife, steak knife or cleaver. It is actually fun! I don't make veggies smoothies. I like to chew my food.

I do not have a food processor, wish I did, but can get along really well without it.

The best investment for me has been a cheap salad spinner ($10 at WalMart). I prepare my fresh greens by washing them, spinning them and placing them in the fridge in a bag with a paper towel. They last all week and are ready whenever I am for a salad.

I also have a good coffee grinder which I use to grind up seeds like sunflower and flax.

This one isn't in the kitchen, but I use our grill almost all of the time... even in winter.. for fish, chicken, pork, seafood, and roasted veggies.

Interesting questions. I have the absolute basic kitchen equipment which I must admit to having to dust off, when I decided to change things to Paleo. Getting more use out of it now but I may feel the need to upgrade in the future.

Hi all!

I know not everyone can afford epic blenders and processors and stuff, but it makes eating whole foods a lot more fun when you can blend up things like homemade almond milk and coconut butter. I want to hear from our friends who DO have epic kitchen equipment. I bought a $40 blender for my last birthday, and discovered that a blender with a high speed button is not the same as a high-speed blender. So for myself and anyone else seeking a reliable high-speed blender or top-quality food processor:

Do you own a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix or a Blendtec?

Do you own a good food processor that you trust to run for 10-15 minutes unattended?

What brand and model (if you remember the model) do you have?

How long has it lasted you?

What do you make with it?

Was it worth the investment?
