Food processor?

Posted by Dezolutions

How many of you guys own a food processor? Does it really make food prep easier?

I've been cooking up a storm lately, and I am starting to get a twinkle in my eyes at some kitchen appliances!

Thats my blog, a vegetarian journey, take-out junkie turned health nut. Lots of goals such as finally singing karaoke, keeping a house plant alive and trying new physical activities (hello taekwondo!) I promise... its not boring ;)

Dez - A hand-held processor that I can dunk straight into a big pan of stuff (squash, onions, peppers, etc) to puree into soup is a must for me. Quick, miminal mess and hassle.  Love it.
Hey thanks for the tip Craig! It'd be nice to chop up veggies without getting carpal tunnel :)
I've been debating the big food processor purchase, too. I just discovered the joys of making pesto (belated, I know) and I've been using my blender. Is there a big difference with what a food processor can do and what my blender already does?
I feel like the blender was ok up untill now. I had the opportunity to see my friend use her food processor... SO worth it! I got appliance envy! Since gravity does its work in the blender, its trickier to make sure everything gets chopped and pureed evenly, i think the processor is a great time saving tool AND you can be more creative with your meals! I have certainly passed on some delicious recipes because food prep looked too daunting!

There is a big difference in the options of a food processor and a blender. To tell you the truth I'm not giving mine for anything, it made my life much more easier in the kitchen - it can make rough chucks, it can blend smoothly, can chop, grate, makes citrus juice, mixes dough and more...

explore your options :) 

love my food processor..

i've got everything in the kitchen and find that the food processor does so much that a blender doesn't.. i.e homemade nut butters, doughs, mass grating, finely slicing.. ahh, i'm in love :)


I basically use my food processor for hummus, pesto, "carrot dip" which contains roasted red peppers, garlic, pine nuts, a little bit of tomato paste a smidge of oregano, salt, pepper, and maybe some olive oil to thin. I also use them for blending herbs or onions/shallots into things like herbed butter or chevre filling for lasagne.
