    Default Food processors. I need one. What to look for?!

    I need a good food processor, can't afford a thermy so that's out

    I have no idea what to look for. DD1 has food issues and i have to cook a lot from scratch, and i'm really struggling cos she is so fussy about texture etc, so i need something that will grind things up to a good consistency, to make soups, patties, doughs etc.

    Any suggestions? Sorry if this is the wrong section but the prod rec section looks like its for parenting products only and i wanted some traffic

    I currently have one and the thing I hate is that it takes up alot of storage room, so my advice I'd to get one where the jug sits on top of the motor, as opposed to on the side...

    I have one where the jug sits above the motor (takes up barely any room at all) but I find it way too small and am actually looking at upgrading (considering a thermy but may just opt for a new processor, not sure yet )

    I have a Kenwood one. It's great. It has a nice big bowl, and came with a million different accessories so it also can be used as a juicer, grater, slicer plus has a mini bowl for doing things like crushing up nuts/ herbs etc. and it also has a blender to attach. It's one where the bowl sits on top of the motor too do doesn't take up as much room.

    I have a magimix- love it! It comes with a couple of smaller bowls which I find very handy. There's some kind of motor to look for (whichever motor the magi mix has is the good one), I think it's a lot stronger and long-wearing, less likely to burn out on hard jobs. So even if you got a cheaper machine, I'd make sure it has that kind of motor (won't be in the REALLY cheap machines). Sorry cant remember the name but a salesperson at Harvey Norman or myer it something will know. My sister has a new breville one which has that kind of motor and was cheaper, came with a really good warranty etc, she's very happy with it- definitely worth a look!

    Make sure it is big enough! Mine is too small and it gives me the irrits. I think it's 6 cup or something but by the time you get anywhere near having it full, it doesn't mix properly
