    Ever make breads in a food processor

    I don't own one, but I see recipes calling for 2 minute kneading times. ...and what about the blades? Surely you don't use the sharp metal ones? Right?

    Fill me in.

    With the small food processor, you do use the metal blades. You need to watch how long you let it go, as the process heats the dough and can kill the yeast if you are not careful. I made many doughs in the food processor before I had a stand mixer, if the quantity of flour was not large.

    For larger quantities you use the dough blade. You still have to watch the time, it's the rotation that creates the heat, of course.

    If I can find the cookbook, I'll post a good brioche recipe made in the food processor.

    I recently used a food processor to mix my dough and to work it. I used plastic blades.

    I got a nice smooth finish but to my taste, the blades are spinning too fast.

    Probably the review by smellyvegitarian. Great name, great review. I might just have to get a food processor.

    I have a 7 cup fp which is a little small for bread dough but I did follow a recipe from America's Test Kitchen for pizza dough in it. It was freaky fast. Yes, I used the metal blade (the only blade I have). This recipe uses ice cold water so the dough heating up was not an issue and the run time is so short I don't think it would be an issue anyway. I did this several times and last time I did it it overloaded the processor and it shut down so I haven't done it again. Really need a larger fp to make bread doughs than what I have. I remember reading reviews somewhere about the metal v plastic blades for bread dough and the consensus was to use the metal blades. I can't remember where I read it though.

    Good info, Len. I'll check the capacities of food processors before buying one.
