Hello, oddpenguin. I've only used the stick blender since the start of this thread, as I already have one. But, in reading all posts in this thread,
you'll find that many people have used other type blenders and food processors, with good results.
The objective is to make sure the mixture is totally dissolved, and completely blended for maximum encapsulation. If I were you, I'd use the highest
setting on your processor, minimum 2 minutes. The time saving with the stick blender is worth considering. When I make mine, I pour one cup water
into 2 small glass container, the stick blender will fit into. I then use stick blender to mix each ingredient in it's own container, in one cup of
water. Then blend the two together in one container for final mixing, then into sonic unit for a minimum of 30 minutes total, depending how many
cycles you need to run it through to total around 30 mins. Then I only have the two glass containers to wash and the stick blender after making it.
It would be a hassle to wash and clean my food processor after each use....I opted for the easy way, plus the stick blender mixes at a very high rate
of speed, and mixes completely. I could not get the total liquefaction of my lecithin without the stick blender.
I just took a pic of my set-up so you have a visual to go with my words
My finished product...
I'm sure others, who mix other ways ,will chime in with their process and results. Good Luck...it's well worth the effort...
