The best food processor for the job is...

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi, everyone,

 

This is my first time on ChefTalk, so bear with me...

 

OK, so I make a lot of purees. I also own a small business that is growing out of my current 12 cup Cuisinart home food processor. I need something that can handle not only a larger quantity, but that has a motor that won't shut down after three minutes of blending. I'm a very adept cook, but equipment knowledge isn't something I have a ton of knowledge about. That's why I'm asking for your help. 

 

I know that Robot Coupe is the bees' knees. I also know they're uber expensive. Waring makes a four quart that is reasonable in price, but is the quality going to cut it? I need something that can work its butt off and make a creamy product. I need a processor with a bowl; continuous feed isn't important. 

 

Please help. :)

 

Thanks!

What do you mean, with a bowl? I've used robot-coupe and they really are great. The price difference doesn't seem that big depending on what you look at. I haven't used waring so no comment there. Depending on what your doing you might look at an immersion blender too.

I make a ton of hummus. I'm trying to get the best machine for the job and am having trouble figuring it all out. What's a buffalo chopper?

Hi,

 

My goal is to make super creamy bean dips. And by "bowl," I mean that I need the kind that doesn't just spill out into a massive vessel. I need it to blend the contents to creamy perfection. :) I know Robot Coupe has a fantastic reputation and their corporate office is super helpful. They recommended the Blixer line. The cost is the scary part... 

 

I did consider an immersion blender, but that won't work for my purpose. I LOVE it for my soups, though.

 

Thoughts?

 

P.S. Thanks for taking the time to help me.

Oh wow, can you tell I'm new to forums? I didn't realize that was a link. Duh. Anyhow, that's a pretty crazy machine! I'm not sure if it would be good for liquid-ish items, though. For chopping, it would be perfect, though!

 

Thanks for your help. :)
