Killed the food processor that I use for making white crumb, think I used it 4 times since I bought it in January. Just taken it back and got a refund (Argos located in Sainsburys has an advantage).

I can suggest not to buy the 'cookworks' branded one based on my experience.

My fishing mate swears by a Tescos home brand one, which unfortunately has now been discontinued.

Any suggestions on one that lasts the grade?

Got a 20yr old Kenwood I had from my sister and it still works perfectly, I would hope the new stuff is just as robust

Another vote for Kenwood. Well designed, well built no-nonsense machines.

When blitzing it up don't run it for too long shorter bursts help stop the motor burning out. I've found with several different makes that running it for more than a ten second burst eventually leads to a smokey aroma !

I use a Kenwood for basic crust on liquidised bread (4 slices with crusts on 2 minutes). For winter Roach fishing I use a James Martin Wahl coffee grinder (1 slice with crusts off 1 minute).

I have had the best results with the coffee grinder attachment on an oldish Kenwood but you need to do one slice at a time.
I find you get a finer cut with this.

Thanks for a kind offer, but a bit of a trek to collect..

And liquidise frozen bread if you want really fine licky for rock hard shallow canals. Put it through a flour sieve and put the lumps through the blender again.

Buy the cheap ones from supermarket, keep receipt handy then burn it out 2 weeks before years guarantee runs out they will replace it for you.
