Hilary asks: What do you favor: blender or food processor?


I used my blender to make mayonnaise, followed the recipe to the tee, and it came out completely runny. I don't know if it's because I used the blender and not a food processor. What do you think? The recipe got 5 stars, so I think it's my problem. Thanks Mary Jo

Hi Hilary, I am an old widower and get confused in the kitchen. My question on line was, food processor or blender? Your answer was clear and to the point. As your generation my say as a complement...
You Rock!

Food processor seems to be the best kitchen appliances as per my personal experience. My experience with food processor is ultimate on daily basis i am using food processor to make various food item.

Get rid of both of them and get a Ninja, the best of both worlds.

Well I donated my blender and kept my food processor. I bought a Nutri Bullit and it goes way beyond what my blender did. I have seen a Ninja out on the market which will both make smoothies as well as do the regular food processor thing that I'm looking into for my next purchase if it works as good as it does.. But all in all. The Bullit does a great job with smoothies to chopping nuts.

I love my food processor and use it often, but I couldn't live without my immersion blender.

Should I use a blender for making coconut milk? Could I also use it for almond milk, since liquid will be in it? Is making peanut butter best done in a food processor?

Thanks for the article. It turns out I've been using my blender as a food processor (and protein shake preparation unit) for years now. It looks like buying an actual food processor will make a big difference.
