Food processor and chopper, what's the difference?
I am a kitchen gadget junkie. I have pretty much everything but a food processor. Hubby asked if I wanted one for Christmas but I really didn't want to have to create more space for yet another appliance.
I know there're some small food processors that don't take up a lot of space but they look very much like the mini chopper I have! I even measured the "S" blade, the length of the arms and how close it sits to the bottom etc. They looked almost identical. So what's the difference between a small food processor and a mini chopper? I have tried using a mini chopper in a recipe that required a food processor; just couldn't produce the right texture. My question is... do I need to buy a "big gun" in order to do the right job? What's the difference, really?
