View Full Version : quick question re: jucier & blender / food processor
I already have a kickass juicer that I use and love.
At this point, would you recommend getting a high-end blender (such as the VitaMix) OR should I invest in a food processor instead?
I feel like I wouldn't need all three, but not sure if a blender or food processor would be best, since I already have my jucing needs covered.
I'm thinking I'd use it to make salad dressings, nut milk maybe, etc.
Would love your feedback. thanks!

Personally, I would go for the blender. I use my blender A LOT more than I use my food processor. But that's just me. I can't live without my smoothies! And yeah, a food processor is really good to have but I don't think you need to spend a ton of money on it. I have a Hamilton Beach that I bought for $30.

I have the Vitamix and love it. It does almost everything, including warm up soups a little. Plus, food processors are so cheap. I paid $40 for a 10 cup one. I use the Vitamix A LOT more than the food processor.

i honestly use both... but i do use my vita-mix more than anything else in my kitchen. i use mine 2-3 times per day every day!!!
but a FP is vital for making 'cheese', dips, sauces, desserts... etc.

I personally have done quite well with a regular blender and cheap food processor. I use the FP probably every other day. I would like a Vitamix, but it is a big investment. I guess it depends on if you can make that investment. If not, don't worry! Expensive tools are great, but not a requirement for being raw!
Thanks All. :)
Think I'll get the VitaMix. Thanks govn't for the "economic stimulus check". ;)

Invest in the VITAMIXER andget a cheapy food processor for recipies whre you've got several ingredients going. Food PRocessor is also good for small quantity dishes that you don't want wasted under a bledner blade. Like a little bit of nut butter for apple slices. Or a little garlic and onion for single servings of salsa,
