Yes, most food processors will be able to liquefy peeled fruits. That said, a juicer is the superior tool for turning fruits into juice. The key difference between these devices is that a juicer will separate out the extraneous, non-liquid components of the fruit whereas a food processor will smash them all into one mixture. The resulting puree from the ...

I haven't used grinders (and I don't know which home grinders are suitable), but a good machine for this is a masticating juicer. Even though it is called a "juicer", it only separates the juice from the pulp in a late step, by pressing the whole mousse through a fine screen. The models sold nowadays come with a part made of smooth plastic which replaces the ...

To make smooth nut butters you need a melanger or a wet grinder. If you have a boatload of cash to spend, this will do the job nicely. Otherwise, you can get in the game for under $200 US with this wet grinder. You will never get a smooth product with a food processor, or even a high speed blender. There will always be some perceptible grit with those tools....

Any machine that can reduce the nuts to very fine granules should do the job. Wet grinders given there’s enough liquid/fat content in the nuts should do the best job. However that might not always be the case. Special high powered blenders (such a blendtec) with a purpose designed jar (like a twister jar) would generally provide more reliable results.

First things first, as it was very well pointed in the comments - food processor is not a 100% substitution for knives. It helps to do bulk processing of the more laborous knifework (slicing, brunoise, etc.) and also to do things that you cannot do with other tools (pureeing raw stuff) How long do the blades last, if they food-process raw hard unpiercable ...
