It works much better

Using your food processor to grind things works much better if you put the blades in. Making things like hummus go more smoothly. I could not figure out why my combination was not getting smoother. Not smashing the beans. I checked again and saw that the blade component was sitting on the counter. There was nothing to chop things up.

Never used one before. I would imagine the blades would help.

I actually bought this when I was making homemade cat food for a couple of kitties with dental problems.

@CarolDM I have more than gotten my money's worth from it.

Yes, that helps it a lot! How did your hummus turn out in the end?

It is very nice and I made a double batch of it. I may go back and add some garlic as I did not put any in this time.

@GardenGerty I have a tub of Thai coconut curry hummus that I got free from work. I'm curious to see how those flavors work.

At least it was an easy fix.

A little sloppy but easy in the long run.

I think you found the solution. Some day I will have to get a food processor just to say I'd done it.

Just a glorifed blender. Look at thrift shops. They often come cheap.

Yeah. I could see how that wouldn't work so well.

@GardenGerty I have not used my food processor in quite some time so so sorry that happened to you about the blade.

I have not been using my small appliances much, but hope to.

I'm surprised that it ran without the blade. I don't think mine would.

Mine is a "Ninja". I am not sure if it is a food processor, or what. It is not a blender. I do have a food processor that is different. Think it has to have the blade.

Yes, things went "much smoother" with the blades in.

That will do it. My food processor won’t start without the blades.

Actually I am not sure WHAT this is. It is a Ninja. I do have, somewhere, a food processor.
