Q: I'm setting up my first kitchen and after doing things by hand for 6 months I'm ready to invest in some appliances. Given how much I bake I've already settled on getting a stand mixer. I probably will splurge and get a KitchenAid. But I also make a lot of sauces and soups so I am considering getting either a food processor or a blender as well. But do you have any advice as far as what gets more of a work out between a food processor or blender or perhaps even a suggestion as to something that could bridge the gap between the two? Sent by Stephanie Editor: Stephanie, a reader asked a similar question last year; here's the discussion: • Which Is Better - A Blender or a Food Processor? You also might want to consider an immersion blender, which is very handy for soups and sauces. Readers, any advice?   Related: Top Ten Ways to Use Your Food Processor (Image: Cuisinart)
