I am looking for a small but good food processor, probably 1-2 cup capacity. I own a Thermomix for all my large jobs but it does not do to well on small jobs like cashew sour cream or small amounts of hummus. Any recommendations?

Recommendation 1: Do not eat small amounts of hummus. HUMMUS ALL THE CHICKPEAS!

No, I'm not being helpful. Sorry! I only personally have experience with larger food processors.

I have a Cuisinart food processor that has been going strong for 12 years or something like that - and it was my grandmothers before I got it. If/when it kicks the bucket, I will absolutely get another one. There is a mini-prep on Amazon that's well reviewed (and it looks like it comes in a bunch of fun colors).

I've been shopping for food processors and am leaning toward a Cuisinart. The model I want is around $300.00 reg price. I think I'll wait and shop a bit and see if I can get a sale price.

I saw a review for a Kitchenaid which says it features a dial for size adjustment in slicing (i.e., that sounds more precise, you'd get the exact cut you want on your veg slices) which is an appealing feature but the Cuisinart overall sounds like it has more of what I want.

Magic Bullet - best $50 I've ever spent - literally use it every day for small jobs.

You can whiz-up just about anything from cashew cream, veggie puree, peanut butter, guacamole, whipped coconut cream, spice mixes, smoothies, etc.

comes with 18oz and 12oz cup, two different blade sets, lids and shaker tops and a set of "party mugs".
