Yep, another question,
I've finally got some money to spend on a good processor and am looking for one that makes smooth, creamy nut creams. Also nut butters.
I've heard that juicers are good for this, can anyone give me any pointers?
I live in Australia, so anyone here with some pointers to stuff I can buy in Aust would be very helpful.

I don't own a fancy juicer, just a centrifugal juiceman 2nd hand that can't be used for making nut butters, etc.
I do have a Vitamix blender that makes really smooth creams from nuts, if they're soaked. It's the only way I can get a totally non-grainy texture from cashews, pinenuts, macadamias. Almonds don't seam to work as well, but I can get them very tiny particles, good for almond flour.
I have a very old food processor, it doesn't get things very smooth at all.
Hope that helps you narrow things down a little!

Thanks Raw Magwene!
It does help!
I need a new blender, my old one gave up the ghost and I'll be looking for a good one and will try to make nut cremes in that. My old one did make nut creams but only if there was sufficient liquid. They were fairly smooth, but not totally. The cremes were thick but still quite runny.
I'm looking for something that can blend thicker mixtures to cremes without excess liquid, so I can use the creme to pipe into and onto foods.
I'll figure it out eventually!
