    Default Mini Food Processor

    Can anyone recommend me a good mini food processor?

    I only want it to chop nuts and seeds, make bread crumbs, herbs etc....so nothing big that needs to be done in batches etc....

    I have googled the Breville Mini Wizz, and so far this one seems about the right size, easy to store etc.....but I was hoping to get some reviews/recommendations before I actually buy one.

    TIA.

    Would you look at a stick blender with the attachment like a food processor? That's what I use all the time. It's perfect for making dips, blending baby food, but has the added bonus of the long stick mixer for doing soups, and mine came with a whisk attachment too.

    I got the breville mini wizz - and burnt out the motor the first time I used it by chopping nuts! The motor really isn't powerful enough for nuts

    I have one of the stick blender/processor ones now like mentioned above - it's much better. I desperately want a really powerful one though so I can make nut butters!

    I have the sunbeam stick master pro which is great as it has a mini blender, whisk and stick blender attachment but I use a coffee grinder for nuts, herbs and whole spices etc - much stronger blades

    Is the Sunbeam stickmaster strong enough to do nuts? Without it burning out?

    I've got the Russell Hobbs mini processor which so far has been good for; nuts, breadcrumbs, vegetables, crushed ice etc.

    I also find the size handy enough for my needs.

    Thanks ladies.
    I ended up buying the Cuisnart Mini Prep Processor (from Amazon).
    It is strong enough to do any nuts/seeds without burning out
    It's compact and just the right size for what I need and storage.
