  • Food Processor recommendations?

    A lot of primal recipes require the use of a quality food processor. Unfortunately, the two cheapies I own don't seem up for the task.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks.

    I picked up a vintage (probably 1960s era) Oster several years back for $3 at a garage sale.. It blows away any modern unit I've used in terms of power. So, I'd look for an old school oster on the cheap.

        Vita Mix if you got the cash or can find a used one.

        What is the one that can grind a cell phone to dust?

          I saw someone rave about this in a primal video recently - it just strikes my as some plastic-y "as seen on tv" type of product.

          But now that makes two endorsements. So I guess it's something to consider! Thanks!

            I would love one, but I don't think my wife would take to kindly to my spending $400+ on a blender!

            (The other you're thinking of is "Blendtec")

              Yeah the blendtec is pretty bad ass. I watched it make an iphone smoothie. "Hubba-wha?!"

              Ninja is reasonably priced and so very versatile! I can maked mashed cauliflower, mayo, and ice cream with it, as well as great guacamole, among other things

                Macy's and or Bloomies will do this for $99 like once a quarter Cuisinart DLC-8S Food Processor, 11-Cup Pro Custom - Food Processors Electrics - Kitchen - Macy's It's a brick outhouse of a processor. In fact I got one a couple of years ago for $79 post Xmas @ Bloomies but I haven't seen it that cheap since.

                  I owned a Blentec and was constantly having to purchase the container as the seal would wear and then leak the contents all over the motor area. Also, it's very loud. Last year I bought a Ninja and absolutely love it. The cost was like 40 dollars and I use it daily. I HIGHLY recommend a Ninja!

                    I have a Ninja and I love it. However, the one thing that sucks is that you can't blend & pour at the same time for things such as mayo. Not that big of a deal, but yeah. Also, isn't it suggested not to press down on the Ninja more than like 12 seconds at a time? I'm always worried I'm pressing down too long...

                      Anything verified BPA-free? (Unfortunately, the Cuisinarts don't cut it in that department. Hamilton-Beach does, but I don't know how good they are.)

                        I use a Vita-Mix and have had good luck with it. The bearings did go out after a year and some too-thick contents, but they sent me a replacement as soon as I called. Great customer service, but a pretty high price tag.

                            Well, I bought the ninja after many recommendations. I made primal nutella and wasn't crazy about the texture, but it worked valiantly making two-ingredient (banana, coconut milk) ice cream.

                            I can see the removal of the motor every time an ingredient needs to be added or the walls scraped down becoming very tiresome. So far, I'm not sure if it's ideal for non-liquids. I do like the multiple blades and different sizes of containers!
