Hi everyone! So my food processor (cheap Black & Decker) finally crapped out on me. I was thinking about buying a new one, but it occurred to me that maybe my money is better spent toward a nice blender. Right now I have a cheap (Hamilton Beach) blender which is sufficient, but probably won’t last much longer (there’s a burning smell when I use it, gross!). I realized I mostly used my food processor to pick up the slack for what my blender can’t to (e.g., grind nuts); I don’t really use it to chop things very often. So here is my question: do you think it is better to have a high-quality blender INSTEAD OF a food processor? Or is it better to have medium quality of both? If no food processor, can a mandoline do similar things? Any recommendations would be appreciated! I’m a student, so I’d really hate to waste my money! :-) Thanks!
