    What food processor would people recommend? I think I need to replace my stick mixer and grab a food processor (we eat lots of veg!). Just need some food processor money fairies now

    I have a sunbeam (unsure of exact model number but they sell for around $450). It's awesome! It has 2 different sized bowls and a box of attachments. I use it all the time. I use the slicer for making salads, the chipping attachment to make chips, the regular attachment for dicing onions, garlic, ginger, chilli, etc, and for making cake batters, etc.

    What do you need it for? That would sway my decision.

    I have this one. http://www.breville.com.au/kitchen-wizztmpro.html
    It has a little bowl too. I didn't pay that much for it though, I think about $400. It's wonderful, I love it. There was a thread on food processors a while ago too, and quite a few members had this one.

    Actually i lied...just got home and saw it, it's actually a breville bfp800. In my defence, It's sitting next to a sunbeam wok..lol
    Definitely recommend it though.

    The cheapest I could get this one at the moment is $422 from HN. I think the only thing I've heard is that stuff can get jammed in between the blades and the plastic somewhere and it may need constant unjamming - did either of you have this problem? The only other qualm I think was it had a small dough thing (yep, brain is working really well!) and some peoples' motors threw it in and overloading was blamed even though it wasn't. However, they do have a 25 year warranty on the motors. Someone had a cracked bowl and had to replace it themselves and they were expensive. BUT! If all of these problems aren't regular problems then it could be okay.

    From the old thread it came down to either the breville or the magimix.

    Now all I need is those damn fairies and some bench space to put it on!

    I use my current stick mixer for making the kids' fruit smoothies which they love as a treat after school sometimes. Also used it for making all the kids' baby food when they were little. I still have one baby to go who has just started solids.

    I dream of using a food processor to make bases for cheesecakes, bring dough roughly together before kneading. But most of all for chopping and slicing vegies, cheese for quiches, stir fries, salads. I have three boys so there will probably be quite a lot of potato dishes in my future for them.

    Does this sound feasible? What do other people use theirs for?

    I read some bad reviews about it before i bought it too but i haven't had any problems. I use it heaps as well.

    Is it cheaper anywhere else online? I found a company interstate selling it for $415, so the good guys did it for $410 for me.

    I'll have a look at the online stores. I didn't think about price matching - still living in the dark ages.

    Good to hear that they are a good machine in general.

    Okay, Bing Lee is the cheapest at the moment at $399. Will anyone beat that do you think? Would be lovely if they could throw in a stick mixer!

    Or maybe I'm dreaming a little TOO much!
