We’ve put food processors through their paces: slicing carrots, chopping breadcrumbs, grating cheese, kneading pastry and emulsifying mayonnaise. We’ve also assessed how easy they are to use, clean and store.
Overall score breakdown
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.
We've tested 30 food processors.
