Obviously you know not to toss a food processor blade into a sinkful of soapy water (uhh, you do know that right?), but there are a few less-obvious ways you may be screwing up your food processor game. Make sure you’re not committing these crimes, and you’ll be chopping, dicing, and pesto-ing to your heart’s content in no time.
When I need to grind/chop up nuts, fruits or anything else, I will stick them in the freezer for a little bit. It seems to help eliminate the creation of a that pasty/butter like stuff which makes it easier to clean the food processor.
This goes for blenders as well, but for most things.. add liquids to the bowl first.
