A great food processor does the heavy lifting in the kitchen, but how do you know if you're buying a good one?

Our expert testers give both large and medium food processors a thorough workout to show you:

  • which ones perform best over a range of tasks, including shredding cheese, slicing carrots, emulsifying mayonnaise and kneading dough
  • which food processors are easiest to use
  • how well the latest blender and spiraliser attachments perform
  • which food processors are the noisiest
  • which ones have storage for extra attachments.

We've also partnered with Shop Ethical on this update to show the ratings that the Ethical Consumer Group gives to each company.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
