Blender vs. Food Processor

In answer to the question, "What are the differences between a Blender and a Food Processor?"... There are several differences in my opinion.

Power: In some cases a home food processor has more power than ones blender, thereby letting the cook do more rough blending without burning out the motor.

Design: The design is a major factor. The food processor is made to let the cook scrape down the sides and even get under the blades and then continue to blend, where as the blender does not need as much scraping down the sides, but one can not get under the blade unless they remove the total bottom.

Blending Process: In many cases it is easier to do a rough grind/chop in a processor than in the blender. In the blender the bottom will become a lot more blended long before the food that is at the top of the blender makes it way down to the bottom of the blender.

Versatility: Many food processors will come with different attachments, thereby letting the cook shred or slice. The blender is made to do only one thing and that is blend.

In my opinion if one does mainly liquid and the final result will be liquid or a liquid base batter the blender is the way to go. The blender is also better for pouring out a liquid base product as well (ie: juice or pancake batter). If one uses mostly dry ingredients and the final result will be dry or a stiffer batter/ dough the food processor is the way to go

Final thought, if one had to choose between only having one or the other appliance then the food processor allows for more versatility and thereby being the best choice of the two.
