Good points

  • Excellent at chopping breadcrumbs and kneading pastry (with the dough blade).
  • Very good at slicing carrots and emulsifying mayonnaise.
  • Good at grating cheese.
  • Storage for blades inside drawer in unit.
  • Two speeds.
  • Three chutes (large chute has a safety locking system but it awkward to use).
  • Sealed bowl shaft so less likely to spill and easier to clean.
  • Comes with seven blade attachments.

But

  • Some blades are accessible by hand through the small chute.
  • Processing time limited to one minute using the chopping blade.
  • No “on” indicator light.
  • Control dial difficult to grip and use the pulse button.
  • Basic instructions with some processing guides.

How we test

Overall score includes:

Performance (60%): Based on how well the food processors performed across a range of processing tasks: slicing carrots, chopping breadcrumbs, grating cheese, kneading pastry and emulsifying mayonnaise. If a processor has a blender attachment, we puree soup. If it has a mini-processor we make pesto and curry paste. These additional tests don’t contribute to our overall score.

Ease of use (40%): We also looked at how easy it was to use the controls, read the labels, lock and release the bowls and attachments, and clean and store the unit.
