ASome food processors don't have set speed levels (low, medium, high, etc) but instead a knob to gradually increase the speed from low to very high.
QWhat are common accessories for food processors?
AFood processors may come with any or all of these standard attachments: a kneading tool for dough, a set of whisks or beaters, a citrus pressing tool, a tool for mincing meat, or a pasta maker.
QWhat is a 'pulse' function?
APulse turns the food processor on for very short periods at a time - helpful for finishing the final parts of mixing, or reducing stubborn chunks in your mixture.

Food Processor Buying Guide

Food processors are kitchen appliances meant to aid in many of the most common food preperation tasks, such as mixing, chopping, grinding, shredding, etc. By using a variety of powered blades and accessories, food processors can complete prep tasks in seconds, that would otherwise require substancial time and effort!

They can be expensive machines, but make repetitive cooking tasks far easier and faster, so are worth the expense if you do a lot of cooking on a daily basis. We have a vast array of food processors from many of the leading brands, so here is a brief guide of the most important attributes to consider when choosing a food processor.

Bowl Capacity

One of the most important considerations when choosing a food processors is the bowl size. The larger the capacity of your food processor, the more food can be prepared at the same time. This is extremely important if you are cooking for a large family, or routinely bake large cakes, pies or anything that required a lot of preperation. All our food processors have a capacity measured in litres - from small 1.5 litre processors to enormous 7 litre appliances.

Some processors come with several different bowls, specifically for chopping, blending or other functions. In these cases, we also list the individual capacities for these peripheral bowls, so you can be sure that you are buying an applicance that fits your precise specifications.

Power Level/Number of Speeds

All our food processors have a power rating, measured in watts (W). The higher the power level, the more efficient the the appliance will be at chopping and mixing. This in turn will lead to better processed ingredients, and better results!

Most of the food processors listed on our site also have variable speed settings, and therefore can chop/grind/etc at a number of different speeds. This is crucial for getting the best results when preparing food, since harder ingredients will need to be processed at faster speeds, while softer ingredients may require slower speeds to avoid being over-processed and ruined. The appliances we have listed run from simple 2-speed processors all the way up to very advanced 10-speed models.

Functions & Capabilities

As mentioned above, food processors are designed to cover many different functions and common kitchen prep tasks. Many of these require specific tools and settings, so not all applicances will perform them all. The most common are outlined below:

Some processors come with several different bowls, specifically for chopping, blending or other functions. In these cases, we also list the individual capacities for these peripheral bowls, so you can be sure that you are buying an applicance that fits your precise specifications.

Mixing: the most common task for a food processor, and one that every model will perform by default. A whisk or paddle ensures fast and efficient ingredient mixing.

Chopping: chopping food such as vegetables or meats requires a specialist blade, which rotates at high speeds to cut ingrdients.

Shredding: like chopping, but the ingredients are reduced into far smaller pieces.

Grating: helpful for hard cheeses like parmesan - a grater module moves up and down quickly, allowing fast and efficient grating.

Dough kneading: a dough hook attachment allows the processor to easily mix and knead bread dough.

Mincing: a mincing attachment allows you to mince meats such as pork and beef - an important tool for making home-made sausages.

Juice extractor/citrus press: a powerful press squashes fruit to remove juice quickly and efficiently.

Easy-To-Clean

Finally, given how much food processors are used for mixing, chopping, blending and other messy food prep tasks, there will be a lot to clean up when you're finished. With that in mind, buying a processor that is specially marked as 'easy-to-clean' will make the post-cooking cleanup far easier to manage!

That is more than twice as big as the second biggest retailer, Overstock for whom we found 31 current offers for food processors. The third biggest retailer is Walmart with 1 current food processor offers.

When Are Most New Food Processors Released?

The most common period for new food processors to be released in is between April and June. If you want the latest food processor technology you may want to think about waiting until April 2021. It's also worth keeping in mind that the price of the current food processors tend to drop off when the next models are released. June was the biggest month last year for new food processors, with five new food processors released that month. The biggest month in 2019 for new food processor releases was April, with seven new food processors released that month. In 2018 most new food processors were released in June, with 13 new food processors released that month.

How Fast Do Food Processor Prices Drop After Release?

On average food processors drop in price by 5% in the first 6 months after release.

That means a saving of $13 on a typical $268 new food processor if you wait 6 months before buying.

Bowl Capacities

Denotes the capacity of the main bowl of the food processor, measured in litres (L).

The bowl capacities of food processors range from 0.284L to 13L. The bowl capacities of the majority of food processors range from 4L to 5L. The Cuisinart FP13DGM, which is on sale for $175.00, has the biggest bowl capacity and is a 13L capacity food processor. The food processor with the smallest bowl capacity is the Kenwood CH180A, which is a 0.35L capacity food processor and is available at $40.87.

A larger capacity bowl fitted to your food processor means that a larger amount of ingredients can be processed and mixed at once, meaning the processor is more efficient and can be used for larger cookery tasks.

Powers

'Power' represents the power level of the food processor, measured in watts.

Across the range of food processors, the powers range from 50W to 2,400W. The powers of the majority of food processors range from 1,000W to 1,200W. The Breville BFP800XL, which is priced at $429.95, has the biggest power and is a 2,000W food processor. The Kenwood FGP200WG, which is available at $157.76, has the smallest power and is a 50W food processor.

A larger power level means that the motor in the food processor is more powerful, leading to faster and more efficient mixing.

Speed Levels

The number of speed levels the food processor is capable of mixing at.

The speed levels of food processors range from 1 to 12. The speed levels of the majority of food processors range from 1 to 3. The food processor with the most speed level is the Philips HR777690, which is a 12 speed level food processor and currently retails for $244.23. The food processor with the least speed level is the Kenwood FP120, which is a 1 speed level food processor and currently retails for $84.57.

More speeds on your food processor mean that is it more versatile, and can handle ingredients that require slow, gentle mixing as well as those that require fast, vigorous blending.

Available Colours

White is the most popular colour amongst new food processors. We found 129 food processors that are food processors that have a white coloured. We found 100 food processors that are food processors that have a black coloured, making black the second most frequently found colour amongst new food processors.
