Makes great nut butter,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Girmi TR30 Food Processor (Kitchen)
This machine works extremely well in turning various nut mixtures into a creamy or crunchy nut butter. I wanted to be able to blend almonds, dry roasted peanuts and cashews, with a hint of pistachios for our own use. I had a salton peanut butter maker 30 years ago, but it required me to chop nuts before I could put them in the little fragile machine. The girmi doesn't require any resizing of the nuts. I makes a fine grind that needs to be knocked down, and then reblended into the butter of whatever texture you want. It makes up to a cup at a time depending on how much you want to use. I haven't used it for anything else yet but will as soon as I find a need for it.
The only reason I don't give a 5 star rating is the size is a little large but I think that's because of the 500 watt motor, and lack of replacement parts (such as the blade attachment). I ran my girmi without the blade all the way down and it wore down the plastic top button. I would have either liked a warning that the blade wasn't all the way down or if it had lifted because a nut got under the blade I would have liked it to stop working. It still works fine, but I think that may shorten the life of the blade attachment.

How is the almond butter made with this product?
