View Full Version : My ancient Cuisinart just died on a frozen banana - what to get next?

So I'm a newbie. Wanted to try some ice cream. My ancient Cuisinart broke when I tried to process the frozen bananas (do I have to let them defrost a little usually?).
Now I need a new processor. Any recommendations on a particular food processor from those that have been doing this a bit longer?

My condolences..... In general, a Cuisinart handles frozen bananas with no problem. I reckon it was just that the motor was worn out. Now, you can spend a lot of money on a food processor, but a standard Cuisinart will do the trick, and last a long time, but not forever..... I've learned to be very careful with the fudge ball recipe. too tough on the old ticker.

search well, you might find a good bargain, I found my cuisinart in a yahoo store for a steal years ago, and it was a professional. very nice@
I say Cuisinart ... definitely. I have Cuisinart Little Pro Plus, it's small but it kicks butt.
When I put the frozen bananas in the fp I usually let me sit out for a few minutes to let them soften a little... not too much though!

I have a Black & Decker.....it has done splendidly so far, and was $89.99 CDN, and is 600 Watts....and I concur with Stina......my first one burnt itself on the fudge recipe....I mean it really was burning!!...the recipe is delish, but BEWARE!!!!

Kitchenaid all the way. I have the 7-cup with the additional 3-cup reservior. It has 2 "s" blades and a gratign disc. I love it!!
I use whatever sells at wal-mart for $25-30. I am not sure what size it is, but it holds a whole load of onion bread. Anyway, I just throw the frozen bananas straight in, no thaw. I do break them in half. The last one I had, we had use for several years. We got a new one this spring when it was breaking. It still lasted until last month. It would have still worked, but the blade got stuck. We couldn't pull it off to wash. It lasted a long time.
