Good points

  • Excellent results in our carrot-slicing, cheese-grating, pastry-kneading, breadcrumb-chopping and mayonnaise-emulsifying tests.
  • Storage box for all attachments.
  • Double-feed chute.
  • Comes with 3 processing bowls.
  • 20-year warranty on motor.
  • Large chute has a safety locking system.
  • Very comprehensive instructions with recipes.
  • Parts dishwasher safe using a low-temperature cycle.
  • Fairly stable on the bench during operation (but can jolt with a heavy load).

But

  • Some blades are accessible by hand through the chute.
  • Bowl is not 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.
