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%): 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.
