    Dear friends;
    I am in a big fix for the past week and couldn't make a decision yet.Please pour in your suggessions.
    I wanted to buy a breadmachine and a presto salad shooter. Buying both comes around $100(take or add a few bucks). Now I am having second thoughts whether I should buy an FP for the same price.
    I already have a Preethi mixie and Oster blender.
    What do you suggest?

    What would you use the food processor for? if its grating, you could go for a mandoline and the bread machine. If its for dough, I would suggest waiting until you save up for a KitcheAid mixer. Those make good chapati dough and also western bread dough very well. Actually you can make a lot more bread in less time using the KitchenAid but there is more for you to do compared to the bread machine.

    Tina; I am looking an FP mainly for bread making and veggie cutting. I am comfortable kneading for chapati with my hands. I was initially thinking of a BM and a salad shooter. Then thought why two gadgets if FP is helpful. Still cannot decide;( Lemme google kitchenaid

    Depends on what you want to use it for.

    I use my food processor more often than my bread machine. I use food processor to make dough, get grated carrots for halwa, grated cheese for pizza etc. Also used it to make liquid base for vegan cake a few days back.

    B;
    Since you have used both FP and BM; can you tell me whether the procedure for bread making is similar or different in FP and BM (easy or tough)

    Hi Nitha,

    In theory, just to make bread, the bread machine will be the easiest. The food processor can also be used to make the bread dough. Other option is the mixer (e.g. kitchenaid) which can be used for all kinds of baking.

    Tastiest is when it is kneaded by hand--jmo:).
