A great food processor does the heavy lifting in the kitchen. We shred, chop, emulsify and knead our way through models from Breville, KitchenAid, Sunbeam, Magimix.

    We test large and compact models and our expert testers give every food processor a thorough workout to help find the models that:

    • perform the best over a range of tasks including shredding cheese, slicing carrots, emulsifying mayonnaise, kneading dough and more
    • are easiest to use.

    We also check out the latest features such as blender and spiralizer attachments, tell you which are the noisiest, which have storage for all the extra attachments, and we lay out the pros and cons for each model. Our Recommended rating will help you see quickly which models come out on top.
