    Go the food processor

    I use mine all the time for large batches but if it's only small amounts, I'll use the barmix(sp??) or just the potato masher thing.

    If you're constantly doing large batches the processor is much quicker, it may be a bit more fiddly and more parts to clean but overall I find it better to do the job.

    Food processors work far better IMO... I find i have to constantly shake my blender or stir its contents in order to get the desired result...

    i find the food processor for lrge amounts and a stick blender for tiny amounts. I have found giving them a hand mash before processing gives the best results.

    me too. They are reasonably soft anyways so it usually doesnt matter that I am using one of these.

    I have a stick mixer that has a mini food processor attachment. I used to use that and just did one vege at a time then mixed them in the containers they were frozen in.

    The Cherub Baby one is great for large batches. The jug is large and you can steam 2 separate recipes at the same time https://www.cherubbaby.com.au/produc...eamer-blender/
