The Food Processor

To suss out the highlights to search for in an incredible nourishment processor, we swung to two top of the line writers of sustenance handling cookbooks: Jean Anderson, the James Beard Award-winning writer of Process This, and Norene Gilletz, writer of The New Food Processor Bible. The two creators were early adopters, buying their first Cuisinarts soon after the organization presented the machines during the 1970s. Joined, they've logged a large number of hours on numerous machines.

We likewise scoured surveys by America's Test Kitchen, Consumer Reports, and Serious Eats, and we inspected client audits on Amazon, Macy's, and different destinations in our endeavors to make sense of which models to test.

Michael Sullivan, who added to our 2016 and 2017 updates, has looked into drenching blenders and spiralizers and in addition other kitchen contraptions for Wirecutter. For this guide, he burned through many hours destroying cheddar, cleaving vegetables, blending mixtures, and throwing together mayonnaise. This guide expands on work by Wirecutter senior supervisor Christine Cyr Clisset.

Who ought to get this

On the off chance that your current machine's engine base is lightweight to the point that the apparatus falters over the counter when being used, you ought to think about moving up to show with a heavier form.

A sustenance processor is the best device for rapidly playing out an assortment of hacking, cutting, and destroying assignments, for example, slashing nuts, cutting vegetables, and destroying cheddar—that would be more dreary and tedious by hand. Sustenance processors are likewise helpful for mixing wet fixings (like tomatoes for pasta sauce) or for getting ready natively constructed mayonnaise and vinaigrettes. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you need to puree smooth soups or to pulverize ice for smoothies, you'll require a blender. (For points of interest on the contrasts between blenders, processors, and blenders, we've canvassed the subject in some profundity.)

For handling little bunches of fixings, you should need to consider getting a smaller than normal sustenance processor—regardless of whether you have a full-measure rendition. A little model will process littler amounts all the more productively, and its small size means it's less demanding to move around a counter, store, and clean.

In the event that you have a more seasoned machine that still functions admirably, stay with it. In any case, if your current machine's engine base is lightweight to the point that the apparatus falters over the counter when being used, you ought to think about moving up to display with a heavier form. What's more, if your processor is 11 containers or littler however you cook for in excess of two individuals, you should need to change to a model with a bigger bowl for mixing wet fixings or making greater groups of destroyed veggies or ground cheddar.

How we picked and tried

Seven distinctive nourishment processors sitting on a white kitchen counter.

In the wake of testing sustenance processors in the course of recent years, regardless we think the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup (imagined fourth from the left) is the best for a great many people.

At its most essential, a sustenance processor comprises of a work bowl that sits on a mechanized drive shaft. The bowl's top has a feed tube for embeddings nourishment to be hacked, diced, cut, ground, or even worked (on account of mixture). Most sustenance processors accompany S-formed sharp edges and different circles for grinding and cutting, however a large group of different connections, for example, julienne plates and citrus juicers—are likewise accessible.

The best models should cleave vegetables and herbs equally (without pummeling them), grind cheddar consistently, cut neatly, and finely crush bread pieces, nuts, and other dry fixings.

Anderson and Gilletz concurred that a 11-to-14-container processor is most helpful for generally cooks. "It's in every case better to go somewhat greater than somewhat littler," Gilletz said. "It's one speculation that will last you a great deal of years. You'll lament getting one that isn't sufficiently huge." If you cook for a family, or essentially cook a great deal, a greater machine bodes well.

Smaller than usual sustenance processors—likewise called little choppers—have bowls extending in size from around 1½ mugs to 6 mugs, yet the most elevated evaluated ones float around three mugs. These machines are most helpful for little employments, for example, slashing up one onion, making a curry glue, getting ready plate of mixed greens dressing, or doing little group of pesto. They are significantly littler and lighter than a full-measure sustenance processor, so they're less demanding to tuck into an organizer and bring out when required.

Our sustenance processor picks sitting on a white kitchen counter.

Our sustenance processor picks (from left to right): the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Food Processor, the KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Mini Food Processor, and the Breville Sous Chef.

The best models should cleave vegetables and herbs equally (without pounding them), grind cheddar consistently, cut neatly, and finely crush bread pieces, nuts, and other dry fixings. That implies the cutting edges and grinding circles should be sharp out of the container and must stay sharp over long stretches of utilization.

Astounding nourishment processors have solid engines and overwhelming bases that stay them to the counter so they can blend tough yeast mixtures. Low-quality machines, which additionally happen to be lighter, will regularly slide over the counter when handling mixture, or the engine may even seize up.

A few processors accompany a particular batter speed for getting ready bread or pizza mixture. We inquired as to whether putting resources into one of these merits the expense. "In case you're making a great deal of bread, perhaps. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you don't have that speed, simply complete a little mixture and heartbeat, and you won't require the batter speed," she said. Gilletz said it's more vital that the machine have a heartbeat speed, which gives more control than just on and off catches. Some sustenance processors accompany a batter cutting edge that is regularly made of plastic. In any case, we didn't see a distinction when blending mixtures utilizing a standard metal cutting edge versus a plastic one in our tests, so we don't think batter sharp edges are an important connection.

Most organizations have wide feed tubes to oblige squares of cheddar, potatoes, and different hunks of nourishment. Models for the most part accompany two sustenance pressers: a bigger one that fits in the wide feed tube, and a littler one settled inside that will keep carrots and other thin questions upright amid cutting.

Different models accompany settling bowls, so you can append a littler bowl that basically goes about as a small chopper. (Both cookbook writers we talked with for this guide utilize smaller than usual sustenance processors in their kitchens.) A couple of machines, for example, those in the Cuisinart Elite arrangement, accompany a gasket on the top of the blending dish to counteract spills. Different models have movable circles so you can control the thickness of cuts; the vast majority of these you change physically on the plate.

Past the primary sharp edge and plates for destroying and cutting, you needn't bother with much else. In spite of the fact that you can buy everything from a squeezing connection to an egg-white-beating connection, such additional items frequently go unused. Both cookbook writers we talked with basically said these additional items were a misuse of cash.


We hacked 1 container entire almonds in every processor to check uniformity of surface. From left to right: Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup, Breville Sous Chef (utilizing smaller than normal bowl), Breville Sous Chef, Breville Sous Chef 12-Cup, Magimix 14-Cup, Magimix 14-Cup (utilizing little bowl), Cuisinart FP-13DGM Elemental 13-Cup, Cuisinart FP-13DGM Elemental (utilizing scaled down bowl).


We destroyed carrots in every processor that incorporated a destroying plate. Some feed tubes were too wide, for example, the Magimix 14-Cup (left), which made carrots fall sideways and cut unevenly. The thin feed tube embed on the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup (right) kept carrots upright while destroying.


A few processors, for example, the Magimix 14-glass (presented above), have a wide hole between the destroying plate and bowl cover, which enables vast bits of sustenance to slip into the bowl.


We cleaved 1 container entire almonds in every processor to check uniformity of surface. From left to right: Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup, Breville Sous Chef (utilizing smaller than expected bowl), Breville Sous Chef, Breville Sous Chef 12-Cup, Magimix 14-Cup, Magimix 14-Cup (utilizing scaled down bowl), Cuisinart FP-13DGM Elemental 13-Cup, Cuisinart FP-13DGM Elemental (utilizing little bowl).


We destroyed carrots in every processor that incorporated a destroying circle. Some feed tubes were too wide, for example, the Magimix 14-Cup (left), which made carrots fall sideways and cut unevenly. The tight feed tube embed on the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup (right) kept carrots upright while destroying.

1 of 3

For our 2017 refresh, we slashed carrots, onions, tomatoes, parsley, and entire almonds in every nourishment processor to measure equity of surface. For the processors that accompanied a circle for grinding, we utilized them to shred delicate mozzarella cheddar. We tried each full-estimate processor to check whether their engines could withstand the rigors of plying pizza mixture. We additionally made a 1-glass group of mayonnaise in the processors to perceive how rapidly and uniformly they could deliver a steady emulsification. At long last, we cleaned the dishes, covers, plates, and nourishment pressers of each model by hand eight times—a test that demonstrated more uncovering than we'd anticipated.

Our pick: Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Food Processor

Our pick

Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Food Processor

Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Food Processor

The best nourishment processor

With simply heartbeat and on catches in addition to a solitary bowl, this is one of Cuisinart's most essential models, yet it reliably slashes, cuts, and manipulates superior to anything some other nourishment processor we've found for under $250.
For the fourth year consecutively, we think the sensibly valued Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Food Processor is best for a great many people. It exceeded expectations at each hacking and destroying assignment we endeavored. Actually, the Cuisinart Custom does everything that an incredible nourishment processor ought to with no pointless additional items—yet it fills in and in addition or superior to expensive machines with numerous dishes and more connections. Dissimilar to some different models we tried, the Cuisinart Custom's base stayed set up while running, notwithstanding when handling twofold clusters of batter. The Cuisinart Custom accompanies only the correct number of sharp edges and circles, as well, all of which can helpfully stow inside the blending dish. Also, the Cuisinart Custom was among the most effortless models to clean.

The Cuisinart Custom slashed vegetables and herbs similarly as skillfully as more costly models. In our tests, it equitably hacked tomatoes and destroyed delicate mozzarella cheddar. It was likewise ready to make a firmer, more steady mayonnaise than other full-sized models we tried.

The Cuisinart Custom's base is exceptionally steady and never squirmed over the counter while working. In spite of the fact that its 750-watt engine is less ground-breaking than the 1,000-watt Cuisinart Elite engine or the 1,200-watt Breville Sous Chef engine, it didn't adversely influence its execution. Pizza batter was our most engine escalated test, and the Custom plied it easily. At approximately 18 pounds, including the bowl, its base remained safely set up.

nourishment processor cuisinart custom 14-container connections

The Cuisinart Custom additionally accompanies a little yet well-picked set of connections: cutting and destroying circles, a standard hacking sharp edge, and a spatula.

We additionally welcome the Cuisinart Custom's 14-container work bowl, which offers a considerable measure of space for grinding cheddar or destroying huge groups of coleslaw fixings. We found that the 11-container Cuisinart Prep 11 Plus was excessively little, especially when preparing wet fixings. (Fluid tended to spill out of the Prep's bowl.)

mango salsa in processor

We made a clump of mango salsa in the Cuisinart Custom in around 20 to 30 seconds.

At first the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Processor appeared somewhat weak alongside alternate models, which gloated settling bowls, taller bases, and enormous boxes of connections. Be that as it may, following four years of long haul testing, its straightforwardness keeps on prevailing upon us. We cherish that it just accompanies one bowl and two working catches: beat and on. It additionally accompanies just the most valuable connections: a tempered steel hacking cutting edge and plates for destroying and cutting. Prior forms of the Cuisinart Custom incorporated a batter cutting edge, and you can even now buy it through the Cuisinart site, however our analyzers discover mixture sharp edges pointless and have effectively arranged batters utilizing customary cleaving edges for a considerable length of time.

With some cautious layering, you can store the majority of the Cuisinart Custom's sharp edges and circles in its work bowl with the cover on, which spares a touch of storage room (and shields you from gouging a hand on a free cutting edge in a cabinet). By differentiation, our overhaul pick, the Breville Sous Chef, accompanies a plenty of circles and adornments that require more storage room.

At last, we discovered cleaning the Cuisinart Custom's work bowl a less demanding errand than doing as such on a large portion of alternate models. After eight rounds of cleaning, we were painfully comfortable with the gunk that can get caught in excessively confounded covers. We value the empty handle on the Cuisinart Custom, which doesn't trap nourishment particles and dampness as much as the encased handle on the Breville Sous Chef.

The Cuisinart Custom's three-year restricted guarantee (five years on the engine) isn't the best among the models we tried yet is still truly great. We additionally like the marginally retro, smooth structure. What's more, at just 15 inches tall, it should fit under generally pantries.

Imperfections however not dealbreakers

We read a couple of surveys that aversion how the Cuisinart Custom's top locks with the feed tube in the back rather in the front (standard for generally models). In any case, we believe it's really less demanding to see the fixings in the bowl when the feed tube is situated in the back of the cover.

The Cuisinart Custom's destroying plate isn't movable like Breville Sous Chef's, which has different settings like a mandoline. All things considered, you can at present purchase extra cutting circles through Cuisinart. The included cutting circle makes around five-millimeter cuts, or, in other words most errands, yet you'd likely need the 2 mm cutting plate for making custom made potato chips.

The main assignment the Cuisinart Custom didn't exceed expectations at was cleaving nuts. Most were uniformly slashed, yet there were a bunch of nuts that stayed in expansive pieces. In any case, since the Cuisinart Custom aced each other undertaking, we don't think this is a dealbreaker.

The Custom doesn't accompany a capacity case for its connections. On the off chance that you would prefer not to store the connections in the bowl, obtaining a case for about $20 would be advantageous.

Long haul test notes

Following four years of long haul testing, we've reliably enjoyed utilizing the Cuisinart Custom. We've made slaws, ground cheddar, mixed plunges, and massaged pizza batter in it, and it has functioned admirably. The 14-container bowl doesn't spill, and the controls are actually what you require.

The bowl has scratched a bit (since we've put away the sharp edges inside the bowl). We've likewise seen on other Cuisinart models that the plastic on the S-cutting edge connection stains somewhat with delayed utilize. Be that as it may, we haven't tried the Cuisinart Custom sufficiently long for this to occur. By and large, we still extremely like utilizing this machine.

Conair reviewed some Cuisinart sustenance processor sharp edges from specific models in 2016, however our pick isn't influenced by the review. (You will see some DFP-14 models on the CPSC's review list, however the form we as of now connect to has a model name that closures in the letter "Y" and isn't influenced.) For more seasoned Cuisinarts, check the model number and after that hope to check whether the cutting edge has uncovered bolts. In the event that you have one of these reviewed sharp edges, contact Cuisinart for a free substitution or call 877-339-2534. (Note: as indicated by our peruser input, this may take some time.)

Incredible for little groups: KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Food Processor

The Kitchenaid little nourishment processor sitting on a counter beside a wood cutting board and bowl of almonds.

We were inspired by the KitchenAid 3.5 Mini Food Processor, which ended up being a workhorse in our tests.

In spite of the fact that it's too little to make bread batter or coleslaw, this 3.5-container processor is the perfect size for hacking one onion or making little clumps of mayo or vinaigrette.

*At the season of distributing, the cost was $40.

For little slashing assignments, the reasonably evaluated KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Food Processor offers the best esteem and execution we've found in a small scale chopper. It equally cleaves a scope of fixings, including intense kind sized carrots. The Mini-Prep Plus makes a decent expansion to a full-measure display (or an incredible option on the off chance that you would prefer not to burn through $200). In our tests, it even performed superior to the small scale bowl connections that accompany a portion of the bigger processors. Since it's so minimal and doesn't accompany any adornments, the KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Processor is anything but difficult to clean. The Mini Food Processor won't make bread batter or shred cheddar, however we believe it's best to finish essential undertakings rapidly.

The KitchenAid created more even surfaces than the other small scale processors we tried and did as such rapidly. It slashed onions superior to our previous pick, the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. (We suggest cutting an entire onion into eighths preceding beating for best outcomes.) It likewise hacked a quartered tomato equitably; we needed to cut a tomato into littler pieces to get similar outcomes utilizing the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. The KitchenAid likewise neatly cut parsley, though the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus tore it, making it oxidize quicker.

Both the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus and the KitchenAid Mini Food Processor made ideal groups of mayonnaise. Be that as it may, the KitchenAid exceeded expectations at dicing carrots while the Cuisinart attempted to slash an intense large carrot and accepting about three times as long. The leftover carrot squeeze additionally colored the white plastic parts on the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus and stained the bowl. Neither one of the models exceeded expectations at cleaving entire almonds, be that as it may; we think full-sized processors are best for this assignment.

The Mini Food Processor looks relatively indistinguishable to a full-estimate processor, with the exception of that it has a handle that can be balanced for hacking and pureeing. The slash setting moves the sharp edge at a slower rpm, while the puree catch works at a quicker rpm.

What's more, obviously, the KitchenAid 3.5 Mini Processor is significantly littler and less demanding to move around than greater machines. Most smaller than usual choppers don't have robust bases like a full-measure processor, and the KitchenAid is no special case. Be that as it may, at just shy of 2 pounds, it has a marginally heavier base contrasted with our past pick, the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. We didn't see any stressing or stammering of the KitchenAid 3.5 Mini Food Processor's 240-watt engine, notwithstanding while hacking an intense large carrot. Since you won't utilize it for substantial assignments, for example, making bread mixture, we don't believe there's much danger of wearing out the engine.

The KitchenAid 3.5 Mini Food Processor exceeds expectations at emulsifications. Truth be told, of all the sustenance processors, blenders, and inundation blenders we've tried for different aides, we discovered making mayo most effortless in a small nourishment processor. That is on account of its cover has a little indent to hold oil and a little opening that enables the oil to pour specifically onto the sharp edges so you have a steady, estimated stream. With this strategy, the mayonnaise meets up without your controlling the stream of oil.

Making mayonnaise in the KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Mini Food Processor is especially simple because of a little well and gap in the cover for including oil.

Our analyzers favored the idea about the bowl of the KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Processor. Other scaled down models, for example, those sold by KitchenAid and Farberware, come up short on this element. We attempted to evacuate the bowl on models that didn't have a handle, particularly when working with oily hands. We additionally love the push-catch actuation on the KitchenAid, where the cover meets the handle. We thought that it was simpler to work than holding down catches on the base of the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. The plastic ring around the cover can likewise be evacuated for simple cleaning.

$400* from Amazon

*At the season of distributing, the cost was $360.

The pricy Breville Sous Chef was pass on the best entertainer in our testing. It offers additional power, a greater mixing dish, and more pleasant highlights. It cleaved vegetables, massaged mixture, and destroyed mozzarella and also the Cuisinart Custom did, and it exceeded expectations at cutting. The Sous Chef fueled through a whole chestnut potato in under a second—perceptibly quicker than any of alternate models. What's more, in spite of its capacity, it was the calmest of the pack at working mixture. All things considered, regardless we think our primary pick, the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Food Processor, is all that could possibly be needed machine for the vast majority.

The Breville Sous Chef uniformly cleaved nuts and destroyed delicate mozzarella cheddar. Tomatoes and onions were diced reliably, as well. What's more, however we're not gigantic enthusiasts of the scaled down dishes on the greater part of the huge processors, we loved the Sous Chef's 2½-container bowl superior to those of the Cuisinart Elite and KitchenAid ExactSlice. More profound than the others, this current bowl's plan appeared to make it simpler to mince new parsley consistently.

Both the small and expansive dishes on the Breville Sous Chef delivered uniformly minced parsley.

It was the Sous Chef's mindful structure that extremely sold us. We cherish how the bowl fits level on the engine base since that empowers you to put it on a kitchen scale for cooking by proportion. Rather than the standard shank that you put the work bowl on with different models, the Sous Chef has a level connection, with the shank joined to within the work bowl. This structure implies you can gauge fixings into the bowl with the sharp edge appended and after that flawlessly interface the bowl to the engine base. On the off chance that you've at any point attempted to fit a sharp edge over a heap of flour in a processor bowl, you'll value this component.

We likewise like how the function bowl is removable with the cover joined; the KitchenAid ExactSlice and Cuisinart Elite additionally have this helpful element, yet most models (counting the Cuisinart Custom and Cuisinart Prep 11 Plus) necessitate that you relax the top before evacuating the bowl.

Breville unmistakably put a considerable measure of thought into other structure components too. For a certain something, the catches are anything but difficult to press. The Sous Chef is likewise the main model we tried with a LCD clock (which checks all over), and it has retractable line stockpiling. Notwithstanding the standard cutting edges, the Sous Chef accompanies a reversible destroying circle and a customizable cutting plate that goes from a whisper-thin .33 millimeters to a liberal 8 millimeters. It's a genuine option in contrast to utilizing a mandoline. We didn't attempt the machine's french rotisserie circle, julienne plate, or emulsifying plate connections, yet the convenient cleaning brush worked superbly of getting caught bits out of the cutting plate. The machine's consistent sustenance pushers likewise make for simple cleanup, since they have no hole to trap nourishment. The pressers aren't dishwasher-safe (water can stall out inside them), however they are simple enough to wash off in the sink.

sustenance processor breville sous gourmet expert case

The Breville Sous Chef accompanies a plastic case to store free connections, however it takes up a considerable measure of organizer space.

The Sous Chef is the best decision in audits from Consumer Reports and Good Housekeeping. Cook's Illustrated additionally suggested this model and says it "exceeded expectations at cleaving, cutting, and destroying." In our tests, the fundamental downside to the Sous Chef was that it made a somewhat looser mayonnaise than the Cuisinart Custom and small scale processors we tried. Additionally, its smaller than normal bowl embed did not hack almonds equally, so we suggest utilizing its 16-glass bowl for this undertaking.

The Sous Chef is firmly worked, with a strong base that weighs around 15.5 pounds (barring the bowl). It additionally accompanies a constrained one-year item guarantee and has a 25-year guarantee on the engine—by a long shot the longest of any of the models we tried. Contact Breville on the off chance that you experience issues under ordinary family unit utilize.

Care and upkeep

Nourishment processor cutting edges are not intended to be honed. They should keep going you quite a while, yet as Cuisinart let us know, if a "purchaser is utilizing it more forcefully or more much of the time than the normal shopper it can wind up dull. They can simply arrange a substitution through the site."

With respect to cleaning, Gilletz prescribes putting water and a couple of drops of dish cleanser in the work bowl and running the machine. A jug brush is helpful for cleaning around the feed tube, inside the nourishment pressers, and along the sharp cutting edges. Never submerge the base of a sustenance processor in water; you should just wipe it down with a clammy fabric or wipe.

Subsequent to testing models with capacity boxes, we found that such boxes are helpful for keeping connections composed, and they're worth putting resources into if your model doesn't accompany one. You can likewise arrange sharp edges and circles in an assigned Tupperware-style holder, container, or other repository. We store the Cuisinart Custom's additional edges and plates inside the processor's work bowl (however be prompted this can scratch the bowl).

Most brands offer new parts, which may prove to be useful after the restricted guarantee on parts terminates. You'll discover substitution bowls, sustenance pushers, sharp edges, and different connections for the Cuisinart Custom and the Breville Sous Chef.

The opposition

Full-measure sustenance processors

The Breville BFP660SIL Sous Chef 12 Food Processor did well in our tests, however it didn't outflank the 16-container Breville Sous Chef or our best pick, the Cuisinart Custom. In our tests, the Breville BFP660SIL Sous Chef couldn't slash tomatoes or almonds as equally as the 16-glass Breville Sous Chef. Its littler 12-container limit was additionally more constraining than the Cuisinart Custom's 14-glass bowl.

We were not inspired with the Magimix by Robot-Coupe 14-Cup Food Processor. In our tests, it couldn't deliver as even a hack as the Breville Sous Chef or Cuisinart Custom. The feed tube on the Magimix is wide, so thin things like carrots tumble to the side and create an uneven mesh. The adjusted top additionally makes a wide hole around the border of the cutting edge, which enables substantial bits of nourishment to sneak past into the bowl. The machine likewise seized up while getting ready pizza mixture and was noisier than different models we tried.

The Cuisinart FP-13DGM Elemental 13 Cup Food Processor and Dicing Kit was not ready to cleave as equitably as our picks. Our analyzers were awed with the dicing pack, which slashed firm vegetables like potatoes and carrots into even blocks. Be that as it may, since this was the main undertaking it exceeded expectations at, we don't believe it's best for the vast majority. The engine on this model was boisterous and the base is exceptionally lightweight.

We chose not to test the Braun FP3020 12-Cup Food Processor since it's indistinguishable cost from our best pick with a littler limit. We can't legitimize paying more for a littler machine. The Braun FP3020 is additionally just 600 watts versus the 720 watts of our fundamental pick.

In our tests, the Cuisinart Prep 11 Plus didn't blend huge clumps of batter and in addition the Cuisinart Custom because of its littler bowl. It likewise attempted to granulate bread scraps and spilled around the shank at the focal point of the bowl when preparing wet fixings.

The KitchenAid 13-Cup ExactSlice was our minimum most loved of the extensive processors. The base shook and the engine in the end seized when preparing pizza batter.

The KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Food Chopper was anything but difficult to utilize, and the bowl limit is ideal for making little bunches of bread pieces, vinaigrettes, and so forth. It didn't make mayonnaise as pleasantly as the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus, nonetheless. What's more, half of the KitchenAid's top is canvassed in dark push cushions for the catches, and we saw that water and cleanser got under those cushions; washing the cleanser out was troublesome.

The Cuisinart Elite FP-12DCN performed well in our tests, however it accompanies a gasket on the top that much of the time caught flour and sticky fixings. Our analyzers likewise favored the Cuisinart Custom Pro's 14-glass limit over the Elite's 12-container limit.

In our tests, we found that a 14-glass limit sustenance processor bowl is perfect for a great many people. Thus, and dependent on different audits on the web, we could preclude numerous models from Cuisinart, Breville, Braun, Hamilton Beach, Magimix, Procter Silex, KitchenAid, Oster, and Black+Decker with dishes under 14 mugs.

Also, we investigated blender/sustenance processor half and halves by Cuisinart, De'Longhi, and Ninja. We like the possibility that you could get two machines in one, however as indicated by surveys, they don't stack up to our best picks in sustenance preparing capacity alone.

Scaled down nourishment processors

The Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus was our previous scaled down chopper pick. Despite everything we believe it's a ground-breaking machine, thinking about its small size, yet it couldn't cleave as equally as the KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Food Processor. In our tests, it moved over the counter as it attempted to cleave an intense large carrot. It additionally tore the parsley we slashed, though the KitchenAid delivered a spotless, even cut.

The Farberware 3-Cup Mini Chopper comes up short on an idea about the bowl, which made it hard to expel from the base, particularly when working with oily hands. Additionally, this chopper abandoned a whole bit of onion subsequent to beating and created the most unevenly slashed almonds out of the considerable number of models we tried. Also, it doesn't have openings in the cover for making mayo.

Our analyzers found the base of the VonShef Food Processor to be too vast for a small chopper. Be that as it may, the most concerning issue with this processor is the wide hole between the highest point of the cutting/grinding circle and the base of the feed tube, which made onions and cheddar move around and make sporadic cuts. Additionally, this model couldn't make mayo; the hole between the cutting edge and the bowl was too extensive to make a successful emulsion.
