what is the best home mixer/grinder/blender/food processor?

i want to grind raw rice and grain, smoothy, chop,cake...ect

and i want to removable blade for easy cleaning. now i am using non removable blade from cookworks...its difficult to clean and food is lodged under the blade..please tell me the proper one to do all above?

Truthfully, I'd spend the money on a Kitchenaid stand mixer and get the necessary attachment packs. These units last a long time (I've had mine for 20 years and it's still going strong) and with the variety of attachments available, there really isn't much you can't do with one.

For the grinding of the grain, there is a grain mill attachment available. Link below.

For regular baking, including bread, you get everything you need with the mixer. It comes with a bowl, a wire whip, flat beater and a dough hook. I bake bread about once a week and I do all my heavy kneading with the mixer.

The food mill attachment is great for making applesauce, tomato sauce. You can also grind meats with that pack. There is even a pasta making pack.

The only thing they don't do is chop. That's a food processor specialty. And once again, I'd look at the Kitchenaid. I've had several food processors over the years and the only one that I've been happy with is the Kitchenaid. I chop, shred and grind smaller quantities in the food processor. I also make all my pastry dough (pie crusts and such) in there. The two appliances make a really tough combo to beat.

Yeah, they are pricey but you will have them for years and years. And there is a reason you see the majority of chefs on TV using Kitchenaid mixers; they are the gold standard. Viking has tried to break into the market and you saw some for awhile but they just couldn't compete with the loyal following, quality and ease of use of Kitchenaid. Hobart is the commercial version and you will find those in commercial bakeries. When looking for the stand mixer, get the 5 quart model. It has a bigger motor than the 4 1/2 quart and it makes a big difference. I have my mom's 4 1/2 quart and I have a 5 quart. The little one does fine with cakes, cookies and easier mixing but when it comes to kneading dough, the bigger one does it so much better and faster without getting hot. And the attachments fit on any stand mixer from any year. Mom bought some of the attachments for her 4 1/2 quart model and I use them on my 5 quart one all the time.

Shop around and get the best bang for your buck. I've seen the price difference between stores be almost $100. on these things.
