Hi all
Need some help 😌
I have been looking at reviews for food processors and blenders for days now.
I make banana ice cream in mine, with frozen chopped up banana, a little tiny bit of oat milk and some cacao powder amongst other things.
A few blenders have conked out on me, despite claimed they can crush ice.
I think I’ve been doing it for too long and not giving it a break.

Anyone have any good recommendations for a food processor or blender which can:
-make banana ice cream
-make nut butters
-blend soups
-grate and slice food
-knead bread

*the last 2 functions are not essential*
I was thinking maybe I get a food processor and a cheap jug blender to do soups ?
I have a small ish budget £150 max but would rather spend around £60
I want something that will last and where he motor won’t die on me.
Any advice would be so helpful, I don’t want to waste money on another thing that lasts a few weeks.

Thanks so much in advance 😌 — looking for recommendations.

I have a Cuisinart food processor that I received as a gift 2 years ago, and I'm very happy with how its helping me in the kitchen.

However, I received a stick blender for Christmas and I think this might be the best tool for pureeing soups. The problem is that when I go to put soup in the food processor, I'm pouring a very hot liquid into the machine bowl, then its spinning and I have to pour it back into the soup pot. Unless all the soup didn't fit in the food processor, in which case I will need a fresh vessel to pour the pureed soup into. UGH!

In the US, Vitamix has a good reputation for durability. We got a 5200 model a few years ago that iirc was within the high end of your budget. Looking online, they seem a lot more expensive than that. We got it from Amazon on Prime day, and it may have been 50% off. I did some research at the time and didn't think there was anything under that price that would be very durable. It replaced a very old (cloth cord) Waring blender that could blast through ice and was durable but only had one speed.

I recently bought the Oster Versa based on Wirecutter's recommendation. Seems like a high quality blender so far and comes with a solid warranty. Was around $180 shipped.
