So you want to slice and shred, grate and chop stuff like vegetables, may be pulse some spice mixes or mix up some butter, turn a dough into utter perfection. What do you reach out for ? One of those food processors you have coveted for many years.
This is one of those appliances that saves immense amounts of time because it cuts out all that chopping and dicing you have to do manually. Great for making a coleslaw or creating ribbons of courgette.
There are 100s of models out there so knowing which one is best for you needs some time for research. there are some useful test items to consider. For example will the blade chop onions and almonds. What capacity do I need ? A large one is great for generating mounds of chopped up vegetables but not really needed for small batches of pesto say. The largest will hold 16 cups which is pretty massive but then dough in some cases is also huge and might just save those arthritic hands with all that kneading.
Attachments – just massive in our book. I like as many as possible to cover the whole range of slicing and grating. I am always surprised at how many different types of blade are possible.
Noise – ummmh, as little noise as possible as some sound like a Jumbo jet taking off. There are a few out there which are shocking for noise.
The brands to look out for are KitchenAid, Philips, Robotic, Bosch, Cuisinart, Magimix, Vitamix, Bamix etc. There are so many to choose from.
