A good food processor is so much better than an ordinary blender. A blender can only mix all your ingredients, but the right processor will cut, chop, grind, mince and shred every sort of fruits, nuts and vegetables. It won't just make all your ingredients into liquid, but into every shape and size you want them to be.
Food processors come with a number of attachments and blades, and can be used to chop everything from onions to celery. Available in metal, plastic or porcelain, a food processor is a mandatory appliance for the modern kitchen if you don't want to spend hours chopping up vegetables.
