What’s Better for a Small Kitchen — a Blender or a Food Processor?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I have a VERY small kitchen, so I’m limited on space to store kitchen appliances and dishes. I would love to have a blender and a food processor, but really only have room for one. Is there any product that does both well? If I can get a 2-for-1 blender or processor, that’d be a great solution!

Editor: Lucy, it depends on what you want a blender to do in your kitchen. Personally, I would recommend a food processor, as it will be more multi-tasking. Some food processors do come with blender attachments. I especially like the Magimix (reviewed here) which doesn’t have a tall blender jar, but a more low-profile optional attachment for juicing and smoothies.

Readers, any advice or good ideas for Lucy?
