    I have the 2000W. 6 of our friends at the time banded together and made it a combined purchase for our wedding. So we've had it roughly 5 years now. It is amazing. I leave the double chop blades in it usually and just switch to the other pieces when I need them. But it stays on my counter as I use it so often.

    Thanks ladies, your suggestions have been great. I like the sound of the Breville Kitchen Whizz!

    I also have a nutribullet and have only used it to make smoothies - I don't want to break it by trying to blend ingredients that are hard and sticky with no liquid...anyone used a nutribullet for non- smoothie recipes?

    Default Food processor - protein balls

    I have a Kitchenaid Food Processor and it's such a robust machine. It doesn't matter what I throw at it, it blitzes everything without bouncing all over the bench like my previous cheaper branded processors did. It weighs a ton, so it's pretty robust and I don't have the fear of breaking it if I blitz harder things etc and never has any issue with making protein balls.

    ETA my braun is about 15 years old it's very well used and still going strong like new!
    I'd been wondering whether I needed to get a food processor to make bliss balls. I have something similar to yours (which I'd forgotten we had lol) so will be trying it out

    @Ahalfdozen when you have a chance, could you please let me know how your breville copes with chopping dried fruit. I just tried prunes and nuts in my nutribullet - nuts worked fine but the fruit just got stuck.

    If I get a chance this afternoon, I will see if I have something I can chop up

    I'd say it's the food processor. That definitely didn't take 40 minutes. This photo and the one before it are time stamped at less than 20 minutes apart. And I didn't use the prunes in the first photo (DH took them) so I whizzed new ones, plus all the nuts etc in that time

    I have the same food processor as @Ahalfdozen and I've used it for dried fruit without any issues. The only thing I have issues with is turning bread into breadcrumbs, but that is more due to me being impatient and cramming too much in.
