Food Processor

A food processor is a kitchen appliance used to facilitate various repetitive tasks in the process of preparation of food. Today, the term almost always refers to an electric-motor-driven appliance, although there are some manual devices also referred to as "food processors".

http// processors normally have multiple functions, depending on the placment and type of attachment or blade. These functions normally consist of:

  • Slicing/chopping vegetables
  • Grinding items such as nuts, seeds (eg spices), meat, or
  • dried fruit
  • Shredding or grating cheese or vegetables
  • Pureeing
  • Mixing and kneading doughs

What to look for

  1. Performance is more important than extra features. All food processors can chop, slice, shred and puree foods. Optional attachments like juicers, egg beaters, cream whippers, dough kneaders, french fry cutters and julienne blades are nice extras, but can be purchased later. It's much easier to buy more blades than it is to buy another machine.
  2. Don't get caught up in the number of speeds. One speed plus pulse is all you need.
  3. The shape and size of the feed tube will affect how you have to prepare the food for the processor. For example, a long, narrow tube means slicing potatoes lengthwise, while a wide feed tube allows larger chunks of food to enter.
  4. A 4- to 7-cup capacity is adequate, but a 9- to 12-cup bowl size is even better. Most of the complaints about 4- to 7-cup models at consumer voting sites like resulted from problems caused by too-small bowls. Professional tests often find bowl capacity to be somewhat less than advertised. Also, keep in mind that advertised food processor capacities measure dry ingredients only, and an open-topped tube limits liquid volume to about half of the advertised capacity.
  5. Heavy food processors are more difficult to haul out of a cupboard, but they're also more stable. Weightier machines are less likely to shake across the counter during big jobs, and they also tend to be quieter. Reviewers agree that major projects like baking bread, making your own pasta or chopping heavy vegetables require a heavy machine.
