When you have limited space on your kitchen counter, it can be a real lifesaver to find an appliance like the DeLonghi 9-Cup Capacity Food Processor with Integrated Blender. This awesome little machine does the work of both a food processor and a blender while only taking up as much space as a blender normally does. Not only does it save you on space, but it saves you money since you only have to buy the one machine.
This unit is a food processor first but comes with a 40 oz. blender attachment that fits onto the base of the machine. That is how you can get two functions out of one machine.
As you use it, you will find that the DeLonghi 9-Cup Capacity Food Processor with Integrated Blender is a super easy to use machine. It has a dual drive system to adjust to the different speed needs of the food processor and blender components.

It has a great safety lock feature so that the motor will only come on when the base is locked into place. This means that you are protected against accidental injury, which can be a blessing for those multi-tasking moms in the kitchen.
Pros & Cons
The versatility of this machine is one of its best features. You can use it to chop vegetables one minute and then switch to making smoothies and salsas the next. The machine works well for each type of use, which is of real benefit.
Since the appliance only comes with one food processor work bowl and one blender bowl, it can be a bit of a pain when you need to do multiple things with the same bowl. Some similar devices come with multiple works bowls of various sizes, which would be really beneficial with this appliance. It would also be nice if there was a smaller blender bowl included for those times when you want to make a smoothie for one person.
Clean up is very simple with the DeLonghi 9-Cup Capacity Food Processor with Integrated Blender because all of the parts are dishwasher safe. You just take the pieces apart and place them in the dishwasher. It is that simple.
