Can you recommend a food processor, suitable for making nut butters?

I'm recently turned vegan, and really want to have a go at making vegan cheese (I know, I know). For this I need to grind nuts to a powder/paste.

I have a kenwood mini chopper and a braun mini processor that fits onto a stick blender. These are generally fine for e.g. hummus, sauces etc, but don't have the power to grind nuts (I've been trying cashews, so not particularly hard) to a really fine paste - they're always gritty.

I don't necessarily want to make tons of the stuff, so I'm looking for either a small processor or a larger one that is capable of doing small amounts.

Any advice gratefully received smile

I bought my brother a peanut butter maker machine - it is quite small hut very efficient!

It was this one although I think got it from somewhere else!

Not cheap, but I have an Optimum 9400...great for soups, smoothies, nut butters/milks, grinding spices etc.

I use the coffee grinder which works quite well if you have one of those?

Thanks all smile
MrsHP thanks, that looks interesting, I'll have a look smile
whats4 thanks, a negative answer is always useful, especially if it stops me hankering after an oh-so-strokable KitchenAid wink
Ony I'm sure it's good, but the price (from your blog) is eye watering sad
But, both you and Wilhamena have reminded me that I'm yet to try the mill part of my nutribullet, maybe that is the answer?
And Wilhamena, mine too, clearly I'm not going completely vegan, still having my huevos smile

Lol, yes,I know! Could be worth looking for something with a similar spec...mine is a commercial-grade machine with a powerful motor (2,238 Watts), and you can really tell the difference.
I've used it to make nut butters and have ground nuts/puréed dried fruits to make nak*d-type bars.
