Chop, slice, grate, blend, puree, mix and knead. A food processor is your jack of all trades in the kitchen.
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.
