But

  • No “on” indicator light.
  • Control dial difficult to grip and pulse.
  • Vibrates on the bench and jolts when processing at a high speed.
  • Bowl shaft isn’t sealed so overfilling can lead to spills.
  • Mill grinder seal can easily fall out.

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.
