Blender vs Food Processor

#1

My opinion
If your into soups and homemade salad dressing…Blender
If your into pastries, pie crusts. Food Processor hands down.

Homemade dough, small amounts can be made in a food processor.

I say blender and mixer.
Dough you can make by hand. And the mixer have dough hooks for some stuff that really require heavy mixing.
But other than that - blender and mixer should be completely fine…
I say mortar and pestle are good for making dressings and it have other uses, but then again, so does the blender and creaming a soup is pretty much impossible without blender, so theres that…

I have a 1500W blender, anything I don’t want liquified I use my hand-powered food processor or mortar and pestle.

I use food processor for salsa and hot sauce, mortar and pestle mostly for dried or fresh herbs, everything else is with a knife or by hand. Soups like potato cheddar or a Bisque is simple enough, just need it cooked over low heat for awhile then it all de-solves when stirred, for everything else I just use a ricer or masher. Used to use blenders for shakes but I have a 45ish year old blender that mostly works and every new one I get burns out after a few months. Works out well since most of what I like doesn’t require one anyways.

Could a vitamix not make pie crusties or pastries on a lower setting? I think whoever stated blender and Kitchenaid was correct. I mean for bread dough, cookie dough, and pie fillings the mixer is the way to go. I find that a food processor is really best for me personally with Cheese shredding and making pesto sauces or other forms of sandwich/dipping sauce.

I have more uses for blender than food processor, tbh.
