View Full Version : Please Recommend a Food Processor

can anyone recommend a great food processor for between $50-$100 i need it to puree, chop... or would that be a blender?
btw, I already have a champion juicer - and a nut/seed "coffee grinder". I love the champion- but it's hard to puree small amounts of things like raisins, dates or sun dried tomatoes... nothing comes out- it just sticks inside and is a pain to scrape out. seems like I need a different appliance.

For a good food processor, I would recommend either a Cuisinart or a KitchenAid. I have had my Cuisinart food processor for over 20 years and it still works perfectly! I've never had a single problem with it.
I know you mentioned that you want something cheap, but when it comes to kitchen appliances, I think it is well worth it to spend a bit more for quality. If you buy a durable food processor or blender with a good motor, it will last you for years.

I have a Cuisinart 11-C. I've had it quit a few times. If I were to get another, I'd try the Black and Decker. (I think that's the one Alissa has in her vids).

Tried a cuisinart, broke w/in 6 weeks. My experience may be unusual but I won't be getting another in the future. I replaced mine with the $45 GE model [walmart] and I've been very satisfied with it. Never misses a beat even when full of thick gooey fudge. The only thing I don't like about it is this extra little plastic "door" that you remove so the food goes out the chute [into a bowl]. It's another thing to clean.

I have the GE 40 dollar model and have been using it steadily for 7 months now with no problems at all. :D

I've had my Black and Decker 10-cup model for almost a year now with no problems. No motor burn-out or anything. Paid under $50 for it at Meyers (in Michigan) but I'm sure you can find it at Walmart, Target and other such stores.

Hamilton Beach($50.00) puts one out that is an 11 cup. I have had the more expensive ones and I like the HB the best. It is so easy to work with and clean up. I would never go to any other.

I saw that one at Wally world just yesterday and wondered if I'd like it. I think this just answered my ????
