Extended review

The Mini Wizz is excellent at making breadcrumbs, curry paste and pesto. But it’s just OK at making mayonnaise – the chute holes are too small so liquid drips through slowly, which takes up most of the maximum processing time.

The Breville is OK to use. It has 3 soft-press controls that are labelled for chopping, grinding and whisking, and a separate on/off switch. It comes with a whisk attachment and a storage lid for the processing bowl. But you have to continuously press the buttons, which can be annoying, and the bowl isn’t sealed, so overfilling can cause spilling. It’s also very noisy on high speed.

How we test

Overall score is based on:

Performance (60%)
We assess how well mini food processors perform 3 tasks: chopping breadcrumbs, making curry paste and making pesto. If a processor has openings in the lid (small chutes) for adding extra liquids during processing, we test how well it emulsifies mayonnaise. This doesn’t contribute to the performance score.

Ease of use (40%)
For ease of use we check how easy it is to use the controls, read the instructions, lock and release the bowls and attachments, and clean and store the unit.

We also test how noisy each processor is when we process breadcrumbs. Measurements are taken an arm’s length from the bench and for models with more than one setting we use the highest one. This doesn't contribute to the overall score.

Price is from a January 2018 survey.
