I bought this in January and only just attempted to use it - it won’t even turn on? I am certain I am assembling it correctly as I know it won’t work unless it is but not sure if there is something else I can try?
The only part of assembly I am unsure of is clipping the release tab down - it shows in the pic the person pressing the button to lock it but I’ve found I need to press it down manually and the button simply unlatches it - other than that everything is done by the book.
Any help is appreciated.
I have just purchased the Breville Mini Wizz BFP100. I found the chop function is not working, (am suing the correct blade).
The whisk and grind functions are working. Please advise?

Will it blend? I'm trying to replace my blender - which I only ever use to blend chicken liver pâté - but not sure if this will whizz it fine enough. Happy to do it in numerous batches. And also, would it cope with making pesto?
Yes, it is the same as a normal food processor, only smaller. It's designed for doing small jobs like sauces, baby food and pesto, which wouldn't be effcient in a big processor, unless you were doing large quantities.
It will whizz to puree like baby food if you whizz it long enough. It happily whizzes small amounts - like 1-2 cm of banana chunks. It gets stuck if you feed it too much. Needs to be slow and steady. :)
The Breville Mini Wizz BFP100 will be able to make pate in small batches. We suggest waiting a few minutes in between each batch. It can also make pesto too!
Can I use it to make nut butter? Eg, peanuts, almond etc.
No. I wanted to do that too, but unfortunately, even though it has a "Grind" setting, it won't grind it finely enough to spread, even if you add olive oil.
Hi Beeb, you can grind peanuts in the Mini Wizz but it is not suitable for heavy load processing tasks such as nut butter.
Can it handle fetta cheese and if so in what quantity.
Standard fetta cheese sizes (the cube ones) are small enough to fit without needing to be broken into pieces. You can maybe put about 3-6 at once. It's better to put smaller than bigger quantities as bigger quantities can make it become stuck and wouldn't grind/ chop. As you put 3 and grind a bit, then add another 1-2 as you go along.
Will it crush a a packet of Marie biscuits to make a slice?
Puree at full orange that had been cooked?
Hi Jane 1412. The machine would handle the biscuits easily, but it would probably only manage half a pack, or a bit less, at a batch. The orange should be fine in one go, as long as you diced it into 8 pieces first.
The Breville Mini Wizz is capable of crushing Marie biscuits but will need to be done in batches. It is also capable of processing a cooked orange when cut into quarters first.
I need a food processor to make macaroons, will this one be sufficient?
The processor is more than capable of the job. Depends though on the volume of the batter you're looking to make. The capacity is not big.
