Which is better for making hummus: Immersion Blender or Food Processor?

Jennlax27iga0 | Dec 5, 201105:29 PM     29

I'm looking for a holiday gift for my dad, and he wants to make his own hummus. I've read it can be done well with either an immersion blender or food processor, but is one (much) better than the other?

Based on my knowledge of both I feel like the food processor would be better at hummus, though based on the ease of cleaning the IB, I feel like it would be easier to use (& thus used more often :), he'd also make his own marinades/dressings, which I imagine the IB would be preferrable for. But since hummus is the #1, hands-down, things that needs to be made I'd really appreciate opinions from people who have tried both appliance (or either one).

For reference I'm looking at a Bamix immersion blender (or potentially the Cuisinart CSB-76 SmartStick but worried it might not hold up) or the Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic 7C food processor.
