Good points

  • Excellent at slicing carrots and chopping breadcrumbs.
  • Very good at grating cheese, kneading pastry and emulsifying mayonnaise.
  • Storage box for all accessories, all bowls stored in unit.
  • Reversible blades.
  • 3 chute sizes (large chute has safety locking system).
  • Comes with two different-sized bowls.
  • 2 speeds.
  • Has “thick to thin” lever to change thickness of slicing blade.

But

  • Some blades are accessible by hand through the medium chute.
  • Large bulky unit difficult to store.
  • Bowl shaft isn’t sealed so overfilling can lead to spills.

How we test

Overall score includes:

Performance (60%)
Ease of use (40%)

We assessed how well the food processors performed across a range of processing tasks: slicing carrots, chopping breadcrumbs, grating cheese, kneading pastry and emulsifying mayonnaise. For models with a separate blender attachment we also pureed leek and potato soup.

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.
