Q: Both my blender and my food processor have died in the last few months. I only have the means to replace one right now. Dear Kitchn readers, which should be a priority to replace? Is one more useful than the other?

Editor: It really depends on your style of cooking. Those who like smoothies and sauces will probably appreciate a blender more, but a food processor can make pie crusts and chunkier sauces like pesto with ease.

Here are some previous discussions that might help you out. Some people recommend buying a food processor and an immersion blender instead of a regular blender!

Readers, would you buy a blender or a food processor?
