What you need to know when choosing a food processor:

  • What do they do? A processor can handle a variety of tasks, such as grating, chopping, mixing, pulsing and emulsifying.
  • Features. A processor with a range of blades gives you more options for slicing and grating. Reversible blades reduce the amount of storage space you need. A double-feed chute provides better control when slicing or shredding and dishwasher-safe attachments make clean-up a breeze.
  • Extra accessories. Before you choose a processor with extra accessories, such as a blender or citrus juicer, think about what you’ll use and what you already have in your cupboard. For example, if you already have a blender there’s little point buying one with a blender attachment.
  • What about a mini? Mini food processors are less versatile than their full-sized counterparts. They have a smaller capacity and some only have a maximum processing time of up to 1 minute. They don’t usually come with as many blades and can’t knead dough or pastry.
  • Is it reliable? Our reliability and satisfaction survey tells you which brands our members rate the best.
