View Full Version : What to buy to make small amounts? (dips/dressing)

I already have a K-Tec which makes smoothies and soups, etc. very smooth. But, I'm finding it doesn't do small amounts (about 1 cup) very well, especially if it's something thick like dip. So what can I buy that will do 1-2 cups (or even 1/2 cup) of dip or dressing smooth and well blended? I have a cheap food processor, but I think that is too big as well to do small amounts.

I use my magic bullet for those things. It was a bit spendy though in my opinion but works well. Good luck! :D

Will it even work if there is about 1/2 cup of nuts or seeds?

It seems to actually work best with smaller amounts IMO. I grind all my seeds in it and make all my dressings and dips unless I need a large amount of nuts. It doesn't work as well with a large amt. ~ especially nuts. It tends to make nut butter out of the sides and the nuts in the middle/top stay whole. Again this is just how it has worked for me.... :D

I had a magic bullet...broke it with a date.....had a pit in it.:( So I replaced it with a cheaper version (like at WallyWorld) and it works equally good. But like $30 or less.
I use my mini-blender a LOT since I am the only raw person in the house. City. County. hah!
You will enjoy a smaller one though. Some people don't care for them, but they do larger amounts more frequently or have other tools to do the job as well probably. The mini blenders are great for small jobs though.
