    I need a food processor, but I'm having trouble finding what I'm looking for.


    Some have large containers (14-cup or so) with a smaller (4-cup) container.


    Others have a blender attachment.


    I want a food processor with both! I want to have the blender but also a small cup for small projects. Does anyone know of a brand or where I can find said machine?

    We literally JUST got back from getting one from Target. There was a good selection there. We were torn on what to get but decided for the Black and Decker Mini Pro. Smaller than your needs as it is only a 2 cuper. Easy enough to pull out and use on a daily basis though - small enough to hide as well.


    We have never used one so this is our first. We will see if we outgrow it... I am sure we will.


    In any event, there was a 6 cup that we almost purchased instead. it was roughly 35 bucks. Not sure if that helps any but Target had about 6 processors there. Made things difficult for us in choosing.

    Being that I have a kitchen the size of your average shower, I'm all about space saving. I need a large 14-cup or so, but also a small 4-cup for small jobs. I'd love to throw out my crappy blender and save a little space by having a blender attachment as well. If I can't do a 3-in-1 I might have to figure something else out.

    I don't know about a 3-in-one, but Kitchenaid and Cuisinart both make the larger processors (I want to say 11 cup) with small bowl attachments that fit inside the bigger bowl. I got the 7 cup Kitchenaid for Christmas last year, and I'm almost surprised I haven't killed it yet I use it so much! I thought about getting the bigger one with the small bowl attachment, but decided the medium one would be more practical for me. Plus a 14 cup one would be HUGE!!


    One caveat, I know you're on a small budget, and those two brands are the more pricey ones. I was lucky, it was my big present from my mother-in-law They should last forever though, very well made stuff. Maybe your dad could buy you a food processor instead of antelope one week! Totally jealous by the way, I have so much fun trying new "weird" foods.

    Look into MAGIMIX...it is a French brand but they are almost magical! I have the Magimix Cuisine 4200.

    Hi Hannahc,

    It took me ages to decide to get it or not because it is rather expensive...I paid about $300 for it 2 years ago. They do have a 12 year warranty though! It is an investment and I would only suggest buying one IF you use it a lot!

    I think that's a bit out of my price range- lol. Still very impressive.


    I guess if I can't find a 3-in-one, I'll go with the blender/processor duo, and just keep my little chopper for small jobs.
