Food Processor Suggestions

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Hello Sparkpeeps,

I have a request for you. It seems I'm heading into brave new territory - learning how to prepare healthy recipes. You see, I am someone who has rarely cooked and is very lost and out-of-sorts among kitchen gadgets. During the past year, I began making fresh juice after receiving a Breville Juicer as a gift. After treating myself to 4-6 weeks of BistroMD, I plan to go rogue and try to do it on my own. Besides omelets, steel cut oats and stir fry, there is not much else I'm adept at preparing.

What I'd like to know is....

1) Which reasonably-priced Food Processor do you recommend and why??

2) Do you have any tips for beginners?

Muchos Gracias, Merci Beaucoup, Thank you, Thank you...

    My suggestion is pricey, but I couldn't live without it. I LOVE my Vitamix. You can make smoothies, even soups that the machine will blend to 118 degrees (higher than that kills the enzymes, which is yet another reason why this machine is great) homemade nut butters (buh-bye sugary peanut buter) sorbets, ice creams . . . and you control the ingredients. The Vitamix has a 2 horse power motor. It totally rocks.

    I bought my La Machine at a consignment shop for $20 and I love it! It was brand new in the box, so I got lucky :) I don't think I could use it to make smoothies, though. Although I've never been much of a smoothie person, so that's okay. I just love it for the convenience of throwing onions and red peppers in their and getting them tiny for adding to chilis and other dishes that I make super fast. It also has a shredder and slicer attachment which I have used.

    Good luck!

    I have had my cuisinart for nearly 20 years. Right now I also have a Ninja which I use to make my smoothies. If I was to only have 2 machines I would have the cuisinart and a blender. I had intended the Ninja to replace those two but it does not do a good enough job when I want a food processor. It does make a great smoothie and the smallest container is great for mincing onion or garlic.

    to into sites like consumer reports for their reviews on the best food processors. a lot is going to depend on your budget, how much heavy chopping and slicing you are doing to do

    I have a kitchen aid which I which I love and have had for years. very easy to use and comes with tso sets of bladers and more can be purchased.

    for the bust dollars, look into sites like amazon, qvc and bed bath and beyond. (i you have one of their coupons you can save 20 percent on the purchse)
