If you were to take a moment to consider what the three most essential small kitchen appliances are, you would probably choose:
1. A juicer
2. An effective and reliable blender
3. A reliable food processor
Next, you would need to find out where to purchase your essential appliances. Whether you buy them from a brick and mortar store, or online, it helps to know a little bit about the product you are interested in. To this end, let’s begin by looking at some of the advantages and disadvantages associated with three appliances.
1. Breville BFP800XL Food Processor
The first thing that strikes you when you look at the Breville Processor, is that it is certainly a very good looking machine. Coupled with its good looks it has a lid with sliding lock and a feeding chute that is wide. It has three blades, five discs, a mini bowl, brush, spatula, and an instruction manual complete with some recipes for you to try. Unlike many other processors, this one comes with quite a few accessories as well. It comes with a limited one year warranty and a 25 year induction motor warranty. It is ideal for shredding and its slicing abilities are superb. Furthermore it is a great for chopping, although some care is needed when it comes to the processing time.
As we can see this processor has some distinct advantages, but let’s consider the disadvantages as well. For instance, if you are making dough, you are going to run into problems, especially when it comes to kneading the dough. This machine is rather powerful and it is this very power that makes it unsuitable for kneading dough. In fact, if you intend to use your Breville mainly for chopping veggies for stock and soup, etc. then this is the machine for you. Some care is needed when working with the appliance. The metal tips on the blades and on the disc spindle get rather hot and there is a risk of burning yourself.
2. The Blendtec Total Blender
Shop around when you are in the market for a Blendtec Total Blender for the best deal. For making soups and smoothies, and for crushing ice, this blender is ideal. Despite what you may hear or read to the contrary, using this machine for kneading dough is not a good idea. Cleaning your Blendtec blender is a breeze and will not take up much of your time. This is a bit of a noisy blender, however. One thing to remember is that this is a noisy blender and noisier than many other makes.
3. The BJB840XL Breville Juicer For A Healthier You

A distinct advantage when you purchase a Breville juicer over a different make is that it is exceptionally easy to keep clean. The nylon brush that is included with the juicer makes cleaning it simple. If you want to make smoothies and shakes then this is the juicer for you. All materials used in the construction are of a high quality.
There are a few design flaws that might be a bit bothersome for some people, however. Greens are juiced very well, and larger fruits and veggies have to be cut up into smaller pieces. Although great for juicing, this appliance really doesn’t off much more than other juicers on the market today.
