Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

Affordable 7+ Cup Food Processor?

Postby JFairplay » 06 Apr 2012, 10:59

I've searched the past food processor thread, but apparently they came to the same conclusion that I've come to during my search for a food processor. Places like City Super and some of the Mitsukoshi's sell a 3-cup mini food processor for around 1900NT, and the only bigger food processor they have is one that has multiple-sized switchable cups that sells for 20,000NT, which is an absolutely ridiculous price.

On Amazon, your average 7 to 9 cup food processor goes between US $100 to $150, but shipping to Taiwan is enormously expensive, more expensive than the food processor itself. So does anyone know where I can find a food processor that's reasonably priced in Taipei? Thanks!

Here's my :2cents: worth after owning and using a few of these different products over the years and deciding now what to bring with me to TP.

Braun handheld is really hardy and great for smoothies, breadcrumbs, nuts (cashews for butter chicken), beating eggs, whipping cream etc NOT ice! Easy to wash. Withstands teenagers using it.

Kenwood Food Processor lasted for years - great for everything especially hoummus, bread dough etc etc :lick:

Bread maker (can't remember the brand) will mix your dough and bake it. Therefore no need to purchase an oven as well. :discodance:

I will definitely be packing my Braun after reading this thread. Anyone else want one let me know!

May have to purchase an oven there judging by some of the kitchens in apartments I see online!
Oven thread?

Cheers

Yes there are several threads on ovens (and just about every other topic you can imagine); just type the key words into the search function, search titles, and return as threads (topics). It will be in WCIF or Food, one of the two.
