The best food processor for hummus UK is the Kitchen Aid blender I have reviewed above. In my opinion, it is the best food processor because it has all the features needed for carefully making this vegan food.

For example, it has a powerful motor with variable speeds, it is easy to control, and it features a hardened blending component. These attributes make it one of the few food processors or blenders on the market that can actually effortlessly be used to make hummus.

For hummus (and I like mine with tahini and a lot of garlic and lemon) I have a large and small food processor and tend to use those, depending on batch size.

Get a paper plate & cover the bowl with it, then use a knife to cut a line, so you can put the blender in it. That way any splatter will be stopped by the paper plate.

I prefer my handheld over the larger machines.

What model of Vitamix do you use?
All I know about my Vitamix, and I bought a refurbished from them directly mere months ago, is that one, it could crush rocks. Two, it purees smoothies including the spinach leaves I add, so I can't taste them (and sure don't want to). Literally a high-horsepower unit for making shakes (my primary purpose) or larger batches, two separate jugs/receptacles.

I've murdered lesser blenders in the past. 100% of my protein shakes contain ice, crushed but sometimes cubed because the colder the better, they're actually delicious with freshly crushed ice. Buy once, cry once moving forward, as shakes will be a major part of my life very soon for a year or more.

Vitamix. It's the BEST.

Although, you can get away with an Oster. Oster's are nice in that they're inexpensive, and you can attach ball jars to them- saves you the hassle of doing extra dishes!

I use a food processor, not a blender. I make small quantities and it's a lot easier to scrape out of a food processor because you can remove the blade.

I have a vitamix blender that I use for blender needs.
