Top Of The Best Food Processors Reviewed In 2018Last Updated November 1, 2018
№1 – Cuisinart DLC-10SY Pro Classic 7-Cup Food Processor, White
№2 – Braun FP3020 12 Cup Food Processor Ultra Quiet Powerful motor, includes 7 Attachment Blades + Chopper and Citrus Juicer , Made in Europe with German Engineering
№3 – Cuisinart DFP-14BCWNY 14-Cup Food Processor, Brushed Stainless Steel, White
Cuisinart compact mini food processor
With a 900ml jug, this model has one of the largest capacities of mini food processors tested and yet it won’t take up too much space on your worktop. You only get one blade, which is sharp on one side for chopping and puréeing (the texture of our houmous was spot on) and blunt on the other, for grinding foods such as coffee beans – although, the results were a touch coarse when we tried it. The bowl and lid click easily into place and the buttons are clearly labelled, although you do have to apply a certain amount of pressure to activate them. The blade also locks into the bowl so there is no risk of losing the blade when decanting the contents. If all you want a processor for is to chop an onion, then this is the model for you.
Ninja Master Prep Professional Chopper 500W
Rather than the traditional motorised base, this processor has a powered ‘Master Pod’ that locks into the lid of the bowl to drive the blades. To operate, you hold down a large button on the pod, pressing in short bursts to pulse or for longer periods to blend. There are two processor bowls (500ml and 1.2litres) and a large blending jug (1.litres) with a well designed pouring spout. Each have multiple stacked blades for efficiency and speed. The small chopper turned bread chunks into even crumbs in seconds and the blender crushed ice with ease. The pancake batter it whizzed up was smooth with barely any flour left hiding under the blades. It is a basic machine with no feeding tube, grating or slicing attachments, but if you only want to chop and blend then it’s great value for money. The blending jug and bowls are solid and also microwave and dishwasher safe. Available from Ninja Kitchen (£49.99).
Choosing the Right Commercial Food Processor
A commercial food processor is one of the most versatile tools you can have in the kitchen, giving you the ability to slice, chop, grind, shred, purée, grate, and dice – all in one piece of equipment. The food processor is a relatively new kitchen innovation, first appearing in commercial kitchens in Sweden in the 1940s and France in the 1950s before being introduced in the United States.
The most important rating to take into consideration when purchasing a food processor is its horsepower. Equipment with higher horsepower has a motor capable of powering through more food and thicker mixes, and can work for longer periods of time without overheating, allowing you to produce higher volumes of processed food. The RPM, or rotations per minute, measures how many times the blade rotates around the shaft in one minute. While a higher RPM may mean the unit can work faster, if it has a low horsepower rating, it may have trouble maintaining that RPM rate for hard ingredients or thick mixes.
Attachments and Accessories
While there are many models available that are specifically bowl-type or continuous-feed, many commercial food processor models are combination models. This means that most companies sell the batch bowls, continuous feed assemblies, and pushers as accessories. Most processors that come with a bowl also include an s-shaped blade that allows you to purée. These and continuous-feed processers often come with one or more discs, which may include those for slicing, grating, shredding, waffle cuts, crimping, or whipping. Dicing kits are also available in multiple sizes, and require both a disc and a grid to dice ingredients properly. These discs and kits can be purchased separately if the model you choose does not come with what you need, and some brands have more disc and blade options than others.
It is not clear who invented the first food processor, but it is known that Electrolux produced an early iteration with its Assistent model that debuted in 1940.
The company now offers two commercial food processor lines.
The Multi Green Vegetable Cutter series can function with a bowl or a continuous feed attachment. Depending on the model, the bowl is made of either durable stainless steel or polycarbonate. The controls make the unit easy to operate, with red and green on/off buttons, but this also limits the flexibility of the processor, as it only has one speed. The hoppers on these models are dual-sized, with one small round hopper for long, thin vegetables like carrots and cucumbers, and one larger oval hopper for ingredients like tomatoes and potatoes. These hoppers are both vertical. Each processer in the Multi Green line comes with four cutter discs: two slicing discs, one grater, and one shredder.
Electrolux’s Heavy Duty Vegetable Cutters are able to process 400 meals for table service or 800 meals for catering per day. Each part of the equipment that comes in contact with food is removable without tools for cleaning. Like the Multi Green series, these feature easy operation but have two speeds to allow for a little more flexibility in food prep. These feature round and oval hoppers that are angled toward the user and a waterproof control panel to ensure reliability.
Hobart has been serving commercial kitchens for more than a hundred years. The company produced its first food processor in 198and currently makes bowl, continuous feed, and combination models. Bowl models, which have a gasket to prevent leaking, feature see-through covers to allow chefs to see their ingredients. The triple-interlock safety features protect operators, and the controls for on, off, and pulse functions are easy to operate while providing close control over the contents of the bowl. One of the biggest benefits of a Hobart bowl food processor is the company’s patented COOLCUTTER knives. The COOLCUTTER system consists of two turning knives that push ingredients into the path of the two serrated cutting knives, to reduce how much time is required to process each batch.
Hobart’s continuous feed industrial food processors are available with either half-size or full-size hoppers, which are tilted toward the user to make operation comfortable and convenient. These units have double safety interlocks that prevent them from operating if the pusher plate has been swung away or if the hopper is open. These models are easy to operate, with red and green on/off buttons.
If your current machine’s motor base is so lightweight that the appliance stutters across the counter when in use, you should consider upgrading to model with a heavier build.
A food processor is the best tool for quickly performing a variety of chopping, slicing, and shredding tasks—such as chopping nuts, slicing vegetables, and shredding cheese—that would be more tedious and time consuming by hand. Food processors are also handy for blending wet ingredients (like tomatoes for pasta sauce) or for preparing homemade mayonnaise and vinaigrettes. However, if you want to puree velvety soups or to crush ice for smoothies, you’ll need a blender. (For details on the differences between blenders, processors, and mixers, we’ve covered the subject in some depth.)
For processing small batches of ingredients, you might want to consider getting a mini food processor—even if you have a full-size version. A mini model will process smaller quantities more efficiently, and its diminutive size means it’s easier to move around a counter, store, and clean.
If you have an older machine that still works well, stick with it. But if your current machine’s motor base is so lightweight that the appliance stutters across the counter when in use, you should consider upgrading to model with a heavier build. And if your processor is 1cups or smaller but you cook for more than two people, you might want to switch to a model with a larger bowl for blending wet ingredients or making bigger batches of shredded veggies or grated cheese.
How we picked and tested
After testing food processors over the past four years, we still think the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup (pictured fourth from the left) is the best for most people.
At its most basic, a food processor consists of a work bowl that sits on a motorized drive shaft. The bowl’s lid has a feed tube for inserting food to be chopped, diced, sliced, ground, or even kneaded (in the case of dough). Most food processors come with S-shaped blades and various disks for grating and slicing, but a host of other attachments—such as julienne disks and citrus juicers—are also available.
Flaws but not dealbreakers
We read a few reviews that dislike how the Cuisinart Custom’s lid locks with the feed tube in the back rather in the front (standard for most models). However, we think it’s actually easier to see the ingredients in the bowl when the feed tube is positioned in the back of the lid.
The Cuisinart Custom’s shredding disk isn’t adjustable like Breville Sous Chef’s, which has multiple settings similar to a mandoline. That said, you can still buy additional slicing disks through Cuisinart. The included slicing disk makes approximately five-millimeter slices, which is fine for most tasks, but you’d probably want the mm slicing disk for making homemade potato chips.
The only task the Cuisinart Custom didn’t excel at was chopping nuts. Most were evenly chopped, but there were a handful of nuts that remained in large pieces. But since the Cuisinart Custom mastered every other task, we don’t think this is a dealbreaker.
Long-term test notes
After four years of long-term testing, we’ve consistently liked using the Cuisinart Custom. We’ve made slaws, grated cheese, blended dips, and kneaded pizza dough in it, and it has worked well. The 14-cup bowl doesn’t leak, and the controls are exactly what you need.
The bowl has scratched a bit (because we’ve stored the sharp blades inside the bowl). We’ve also noticed on other Cuisinart models that the plastic on the S-blade attachment discolors slightly with prolonged use. However, we haven’t tested the Cuisinart Custom long enough for this to happen. Overall, we still really like using this machine.
We were impressed by the KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor, which proved to be a workhorse in our tests.
KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Food Processor
The KitchenAid produced more even textures than the other mini processors we tested and did so quickly. It chopped onions better than our former pick, the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. (We recommend cutting a whole onion into eighths prior to pulsing for best results.) It also chopped a quartered tomato very evenly; we had to cut a tomato into smaller pieces to get the same results using the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. The KitchenAid also cleanly cut parsley, whereas the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus tore it, causing it to oxidize faster.
Both the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus and the KitchenAid Mini Food Processor made perfect batches of mayonnaise. However, the KitchenAid excelled at dicing carrots while the Cuisinart struggled to chop a tough jumbo carrot and took nearly three times as long. The residual carrot juice also dyed the white plastic parts on the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus and discolored the bowl. Neither model excelled at chopping whole almonds, however; we think full-sized processors are best for this task.
The Mini Food Processor looks almost identical to a full-size processor, except that it has a knob that can be adjusted for chopping and pureeing. The chop setting moves the blade at a slower rpm, while the puree button operates at a faster rpm.
And, of course, the KitchenAid 3.Mini Processor is quite a bit smaller and easier to move around than bigger machines. Most mini choppers don’t have hefty bases like a full-size processor, and the KitchenAid is no exception. However, at just under pounds, it has a slightly heavier base compared to our previous pick, the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. We didn’t notice any straining or stuttering of the KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor’s 240-watt motor, even when chopping a tough jumbo carrot. Since you won’t use it for heavy tasks such as making bread dough, we don’t think there’s much risk of burning out the motor.
The KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor excels at emulsifications. In fact, of all the food processors, blenders, and immersion blenders we’ve tested for various guides, we found making mayo easiest in a mini food processor. That’s because its lid has a small indent to hold oil and a small hole that allows the oil to pour directly onto the blades so you have a consistent, measured stream. With this method, the mayonnaise comes together without your having to control the flow of oil.
Making mayonnaise in the KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Mini Food Processor is exceptionally easy due to a small well and hole in the lid for adding oil.
Our testers preferred the handle on the bowl of the KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Processor. Other mini models, such as those sold by KitchenAid and Farberware, lack this feature. We struggled to remove the bowl on models that didn’t have a handle, especially when working with greasy hands. We also love the push-button activation on the KitchenAid, where the lid meets the handle. We found it easier to operate than holding down buttons on the base of the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. The plastic ring around the lid can also be removed for easy cleaning.
Our testers liked the placement of the push-button activation on the KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Mini Food Processor where the lid meets the handle.
The KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor comes with a one-year warranty. If you experience problems under normal household use, contact KitchenAid for support.
The Breville Sous Chef performed best overall in our tests, but it’s far larger and has more attachments than most people need.
Full-size food processors
The Breville BFP660SIL Sous Chef 1Food Processor did well in our tests, but it didn’t outperform the 16-cup Breville Sous Chef or our top pick, the Cuisinart Custom. In our tests, the Breville BFP660SIL Sous Chef wasn’t able to chop tomatoes or almonds as evenly as the 16-cup Breville Sous Chef. Its smaller 12-cup capacity was also more limiting than the Cuisinart Custom’s 14-cup bowl.
We were not impressed with the Magimix by Robot-Coupe 14-Cup Food Processor. In our tests, it wasn’t able to produce as even a chop as the Breville Sous Chef or Cuisinart Custom. The feed tube on the Magimix is very wide, so thin items like carrots fall to the side and produce an uneven grate. The rounded lid also creates a wide gap around the perimeter of the slicing blade, which allows large pieces of food to slip through into the bowl. The machine also seized up while preparing pizza dough and was noisier than other models we tested.
The Cuisinart FP-13DGM Elemental 1Cup Food Processor and Dicing Kit was not able to chop as evenly as our picks. Our testers were impressed with the dicing kit, which chopped firm vegetables like potatoes and carrots into even cubes. However, since this was the only task it excelled at, we don’t think it’s best for most people. The motor on this model was noisy and the base is very lightweight.
We decided not to test the Braun FP3020 12-Cup Food Processor since it’s the same price as our top pick with a smaller capacity. We can’t justify paying more for a smaller machine. The Braun FP3020 is also only 600 watts versus the 720 watts of our main pick.
In our tests, the Cuisinart Prep 1Plus didn’t mix big batches of dough as well as the Cuisinart Custom due to its smaller bowl. It also struggled to grind bread crumbs and leaked around the shank at the center of the bowl when processing wet ingredients.
The KitchenAid 13-Cup ExactSlice was our least favorite of the large processors. The base shook and the motor eventually seized when processing pizza dough.
The Cuisinart Elite FP-12DCN performed well in our tests, but it comes with a gasket on the lid that frequently trapped flour and sticky ingredients. Our testers also preferred the Cuisinart Custom Pro’s 14-cup capacity over the Elite’s 12-cup capacity.
In our tests, we found that a 14-cup capacity food processor bowl is ideal for most people. For this reason, and based on other reviews on the web, we were able to rule out many models from Cuisinart, Breville, Braun, Hamilton Beach, Magimix, Procter Silex, KitchenAid, Oster, and Black+Decker with bowls under 1cups.
Additionally, we looked into blender/food processor hybrids by Cuisinart, De’Longhi, and Ninja. We like the idea that you could get two machines in one, but according to reviews, they don’t stack up to our top picks in food-processing ability alone.
Mini food processors
The Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus was our former mini chopper pick. We still think it’s a powerful machine, considering its diminutive size, but it wasn’t able to chop as evenly as the KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Food Processor. In our tests, it moved across the counter as it struggled to chop a tough jumbo carrot. It also tore the parsley we chopped, whereas the KitchenAid produced a clean, even cut.
The Farberware 3-Cup Mini Chopper lacks a handle on the bowl, which made it difficult to remove from the base, especially when working with greasy hands. Also, this chopper left behind an entire piece of onion after pulsing and produced the most unevenly chopped almonds out of all the models we tested. And it doesn’t have holes in the lid for making mayo.
Our testers found the base of the VonShef Food Processor to be too large for a mini-chopper. However, the biggest problem with this processor is the wide gap between the top of the slicing/grating disk and the bottom of the feed tube, which caused onions and cheese to roll around and create irregular slices. Also, this model couldn’t make mayo; the gap between the blade and the bowl was too large to create an effective emulsion.
Accessories and Attachments
One consideration which can separate a good food processor from the rest of the pack is the available accessories. An ideal unit should contain blades, cutting disks and whisks. The cutting tools should be well-constructed and fit securely in the machine. A generous feeding tube with a plunging device is also a good feature.
Small feeding tubes can cause cooks to spend significant time cutting food down to size before processing. A good food processor allows for food to be added while in operation. A blender attachment can save time and shelf space, while a juicer option duplicates the function of a more expensive machine.
Food processors come with a fixed number of attachments as well as extra blades and discs that you can buy along with it. Most processors have sufficient functions without the necessity to buy the extras but depending on your usage you can go in for any of the additional attachments.
More often than not, food processors come with a coconut scraper attachment. This is especially useful for households where coconut is an integral ingredient for most delicacies. A scraper makes the otherwise tedious task of coconut scraping much easier.
Over load protection
Quite a few times, we put more stuff in the jar than is recommended. This can result in motor overload and eventually in a burn-out. Many a times, without realizing it, people tend to put more material in the jar than recommended. This is why the processor comes with a special relay known as a circuit breaker, which works like a common fuse in the house. It is a necessary safety feature both for the shelf life of your processor as well as your home.
Also look out for any special features like bowls, variable speeds, spoons, spatulas that come with the food processors. These aren’t very common across, so depending on the feature you want the most, you can make your choice.
The best Juicer, Mixer, Grinders – Brands, Prices, Reviews
Besides all these, the Conair Cuisinart is an absolute delight for its ease of use. Anyone can use it without any guideline as it is that simple to operate. But making the food mess is easy, however cleaning the mess is always harder. Not with this one as you can just put it in the dishwasher and let it take care of the business. Also, the appliance comes with some extra accessories like a recipe book, spatula and some other stuff to help your work. So, all in all, I consider it as an exceptional all rounded food processor with a lot to offer to the parents. >>> See Customers reviews and ratings <<<
The power of the appliance will mean nothing without proper blades. And the FP-14DC covers that aspect as it offers heavy duty stainless blade. And like its predecessor, it has the blade lock system for users convenience and safety.
However, after using the food processor, you can easily clean it too as all the parts are dishwasher friendly. And after cleaning all the parts, you can store them in the storage case which comes with the processor. >>> See Customers reviews and ratings <<<
Food processors are generally quite large in size but smaller than a stand mixer, and are available in different size capacities. They’re easy to use: simply feed food through the opening at the top of the machine and choose your speed setting.
Ideal for: chopping and slicing vegetables, particularly into small pieces for soups and sauces. A stand mixer may be more suitable if you’re looking to buy an appliance for mainly baking tasks.
Basic, cheaper hand blenders will only include the chopping blade while more advanced models may come with attachments for tasks such as whisking, chopping and mashing.
Ideal for: blending soup, sauces, smoothies and baby food. Whisk attachment can be used for whipping cream and beating egg while chopper blades are useful for shredding herbs, garlic, vegetables and nuts. Smaller than food processors and greater control when blending.
A hand mixer is a compact handheld appliance for mixing, whipping or whisking. It features twin beaters, and sometimes a dough hook and balloon whisk, which rotate to blend, stir, knead and whip ingredients.
They’re usually quite lightweight, easy to store away and relatively inexpensive compared to stand mixers.
Ideal for: gentle baking jobs like whipping cream, whisking egg whites and blending cake ingredients.
Jug blender and smoothie maker
Some blenders have a larger capacity, around 1.5-litres, making them an ideal choice for families. Personal blenders feature a smaller blending jug for one or two portions, which can also be used as a drinking cup when you’re on-the-go. These blenders may also have the ability to blend seeds, nuts and stalks as well as crushing ice.
Prices differ depending on power, speed and material and typically range from £20-£300. Plastic jugs are lighter for lifting and storing away, whilst glass jugs are heavier, more solid and less likely to get scratched. Blenders and smoothie makers take up less room than food processors and are generally easy to store away, if you don’t want to keep it on show.
This is important for a variety of reasons, and refers mostly to the speed settings. Nearly every unit has a pulse setting that works the same way. But there are multiple units on the list with over speeds, which is desirable to someone that wants the best from a multi-use blender and food processor. The point of the speeds is to get the desired process out of the way. In the case of the Magic Bullet, there is a big limitation in it. But if you look more closely, the magic Bullet is no more limited than some of the products on the list that only have speed settings.
The gold standard is or higher for the best amount of options, and anything below that is not enough for a unit with multiple tasks. There is unfortunately nothing in-between that number, so there is no middle ground to be fought over. It’s either a limited unit, or a high function unit, for all intents and purposes. If looking for the best blender food processor combo, then picking one with or more speed settings is more than expected to get the best deal.
Not everyone has an island setup in their kitchen, so for smaller kitchens a lot of the processors on the list won’t cut it. Portable units like the Magic Bullet are the best, and can even be left out without taking up too much space. For smaller kitchens, a unit that is able to be quickly taken out, then quickly put back is a great asset. The Ninja is quite large, but is very easy to put together, disassemble, and then put away again. Not having a lot of complicated or unnecessary parts makes the entire process of using a food processor and blender combo easier for the user, and not such a burden because they are in a small space.
Repetition of course helps with this process, but a well-designed unit will be easy whether it sits out all the time or whether it is put away in storage after use. Take great care when choosing a unit that will sit out permanently, especially if it contains a host of add-ons in order to reach its full functionality. Those units in particular can easily add up and start getting bulkier.
For the purpose of this article, accessories will not refer to the add-on food processors or blenders, but will refer to additional blades, caps, recipe books, etc. The accessory list when choosing a blender and food processor combo is not nearly as important as the main features of the unit itself. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the extras, which is great, but remember that if the actual machine isn’t that good to begin with then the parts that attach to it or use its functions aren’t going to be any better. There is no saving a bad unit, and in the rare case of units that use the Magic Bullet system, accessories become important only because it is a function of the system itself.
Some buyers will find that a food processor on this list will not perform a certain function, like shredding cheese, without buying an add-on piece. This could have been avoided if the original unit already had that option, which goes back to purchasing a unit that does what you want to right out of the box and not focusing on the accessories to make it better. Remember, a processor and blender combo is the foundation, not the accessories.
Parts that automatically lock or don’t engage when closed are an important feature in all systems. Besides protecting curious children in the house, it also protects you from accidents. All but one unit has a safety feature to prevent accidental injury, which shows how seriously manufacturers take this part of their unit. Some of the safety features are easy to figure out, while others require reading of the documentation. Although some of the more advanced features can lead to frustration, it’s important to understand that they are there to protect you, the user.
And even the most advanced system can’t protect you from the blades that are inside the unit. Whenever trying to clean or reach for something inside where the blades are exposed, remember that they are razor sharp! And there are also units with blades on both the top and bottom, many of which can easily slice a finger open. Staying on top of the safety measures with the equipment will avoid unnecessary injury in the future.

What Features To Consider While Buying The Best Food Processor?
The food processors are all in one device, but it is really important to check whether the product contains attachment such as jars and blades for whipping the cream, perfectly chopping the nuts.
The product consists of various attachments which helps the customer to prepare their food in a better way.
A Mini size
Basic parts are the same which contain some additional components. Full sized models usually consist of heavy and large, powerful motors whose weight is almost 9kg that gives the product more stability and make sure that the power will not tremble while its working.
A shaft extends upwards from the motor to the power attachments. The durable and reliable bowl fits on this shaft. The top of the bowl is covered with a lockable lid.
The top of this machine has the food tube which is fitted along with the plunger. One can embed nourishment in the gadget with the help of this food tube. A few models have more extensive and narrower food tubes for utilization with bigger and littler sustenance things. The span of the dish differs as per the extent of the food processor.
Using Food Processor Shredding
You can do this with one of the blade attachments, and it is excellent for shredding cheese. If you use recipes which use shredded cheese then making your own will make those recipes taste a lot better. Freshly shredded cheese tastes better than store bought shredded cheese and it only takes a few seconds to shred your own. Try using your shredded cheese on pizza or lasagna. You can also shred leftover meats and use them in other recipes as well.
Chopping With Food Processor Chopping
This is probably one of the better-known uses for a food processor, and it is fast. If you spend a much time on chopping up food to use in recipes, you might be surprised at how much time you can save. All you need to do is feed large chunks of vegetables or fruits into the processor and in a few seconds they will be perfectly chopped.
Slicing With Food Processor Slicing
You use one of the blade attachments for this and simply feed large pieces into the processor and in a matter of seconds, you can have enough potato slices, for example, to make a large potato bake. You can do the same with apples, and they are chopped and ready for making a pie or cooking up ready for making homemade apple sauce.
Pureeing With Food Processor Pureeing
If you place your cooked and cooled apple slices into the processor, you can puree them into apple sauce in seconds, adding a little liquid through the lid to reach the perfect consistency. You can do this with cooked chickpeas too, and add some minced garlic and lemon juice through the lid, to bring your humus to the correct consistency too.
Mixing With Food Processor Mixing
You can mix dry ingredients too, such as you would do with a cake and add in the wet ingredients slowly through the lid of the processor for the best cake batter consistency. You can start out on a low speed and then beat the mix on a higher speed for the best results.
Grating With Food Processor Grating
Grating potatoes, carrots, apples or anything else for that matter is very time consuming when you do it by hand. However, when you set up your food processor with the correct blade, it is done in the blink of an eye. Cooking becomes a pleasure when the preparation is this fast.
Sauces With Food Processor Sauces
In addition to the applesauce we mentioned above, you can also do things like make your salad dressings and mayonnaise. There are thousands of recipes, just those from most Asian cookery covers hundreds if not thousands.
Whipping With A Food Processor Whipping
This attachment is perfect for whipping cream and making scrambled eggs. You might be starting to realize by now that having a food processor can replace several other kitchen appliances. Though it could look a little bulkier, some replace some if not all other cooking appliances for most modern kitchen
Kneading With Food Processor Bread and Dough
This is one of my favorites, and the food processor does a beautiful job of mixing and kneading. The oven does the rest. You can make dough for pizza too and then use your homemade tomato sauce and shredded cheese, as well as chopped vegetables and meats you have processed in your food processor as well.
Ice Cream Mixes With A Food Processor Ice Cream
Another favorite, you need to have fresh fruit and freeze it, like bananas, strawberries or mangoes, etc. You put the frozen fruit pieces in the food processor and pulse until it is all broken down, then add in a few dollops of natural yogurt and puree it. Instant, soft serve, natural fruit ice-cream is yours for the eating.
Chop products of the soil to make mixed greens and salsas. Initially, cleave the fixings that you need finely cleaved and afterward include things that you need in bigger pieces.
Grind nuts so they can sprinkle over frozen yogurt, greens, and different suppliers.

Food Processor Size
This point is very important. If you don’t believe us, just ask anyone who has bought a microwave to find out when they took it home that it just won’t fit.
That situation accounts for about half of all microwave stand sales, we are certain. Measure your countertop and the vertical distance from the countertop to anything above it. Some quick research on size will pay off in a big way.
Usually, measurements of appliances are included in the specifications on website pages. This step may well prevent the purchase of a kitchen island or a stand just so you can use your food processor.

Some Things to Look for in a Food Processor
When purchasing any appliance, it’s important to be well aware of the capabilities of the product you’re buying. If your food processor doesn’t measure up to your standards it can’t be used properly. Here are some of the main things your any food processor should be able to do:
KitchenAid KFP0922OB Food Processor
Chop Dry Ingredients – Whether it’s nuts, breadcrumbs, or dried fruits, the processor should have a setting for dry ingredients. In this setting, the processor will pulse and move up and down, starting and stopping after each rotation. This rotating action will help chop and mix any of the ingredients in the bowl without cutting them too finely
Puree Vegetables – A food processor should be able to make marinade, dips, and chunky soups. Check out the bowl shape, power, and blade design before purchasing a processor, so you can see how well it will operate with a puree. Make sure that the food processor is also waterproof.
Grind Meats – For many people, a dedicated meat grinder or meat grinding attachment is out of the question, so a food processor that also has a meat-grinding function is important. Meat can be difficult to chop through, so a sharp blade and powerful motor are necessary
Form Emulsions – When making sauces like mayonnaise or a salad dressing, a food processor can be invaluable. The design of the bowl will greatly affect the processor’s ability to emulsify ingredients, so make sure that the blades come in contact with ingredients in the bottom of the bowl
Knead Dough – A good food processor should quickly and easily knead dough and other thick ingredients. Kneading dough is one of the most heavy-duty tasks a food processor will have to perform, so if it can knead dough it can grind meat and perform other intensive tasks.
If a food processor can perform all of these tasks, it’s well suited to any kitchen application.
While it’s possible to remove and sharpen a processor’s blade, it can be very difficult; and any mistake can break the blade or your appliance. That’s why people prefer blades with micro-serrations, which retain the blade’s cutting ability after many uses. Similar self-sharpening techniques are used in food processors and help to keep the blade cutting smoothly. While the majority people prefer sharp blades because of their all-around usefulness, many people lean towards a duller blade. A blade that’s dull by design can be used to pulverize food instead of chopping it, or to knead dough. A dull blade is preferred for kneading dough because a blade that’s too sharp will simply cut and tear the ingredients instead of properly blending them.
Manual Food Processors
While many people instantly think of an electric, rotating-blade food processor it’s important to remember that there are many other types of processors on the market. Manual food processors typically serve a single purpose and can only be used with small batches, but they cost a great deal less than a high-end electric processing appliance. Many chefs prefer using manual food processors over a more modern design because they feel like it gives them more control over the ingredients.
Shred food into uniform ribbons, graters can be used to make everything from macaroni and cheese to hash browns. Graters are primarily used for cheese, but they can also be used for many other ingredients. Graters come in two main designs:
Box Graters – Great for general use, a box grater has four sides, with each side fitted with a different cutting surface. Typically made out of tinned steel, a box grater is simple to use and easy to have full control over
Rotary Graters – Typically found in restaurants, rotary graters help make food shredding more efficient. A plastic arm presses food to the grater’s round inner drum, which makes it easy and safe to operate. The user then turns a crank, which causes the drum to rotate and rake off small ribbons of whatever ingredient is in the grater.
Made to help people who are tired of chasing pieces of meat, vegetables, and fruits around the cutting board, choppers offer an elegant alternative to chopping ingredients by hand. A dome covers the food and a small plunger pushes a blade down into the base of the dome where it chops the ingredients.
A versatile kitchen tool, food mills use a tension-based rotating crank to force soft foods through several disks that turn the ingredients into a fine blend. The ingredients then mix with the air, which adds extra texture to the puree. The holes in the disks mash the food and separate any seeds, cores, or skin that gets caught in the food mill.
What exactly can you use a blender to do whatever it is a food processor does. A food processor is so much more than just a mixer. When you use your food processor
Parts of a Food Processor: come equipped with several speeds.
These vary in size, so choose the one that best fits your needs. Bowls for food processors can range in size from to 1cups, with some food chopper runs about cups and works well for one to three people.
