Food processor

Want to save time in the kitchen?

We all want to be able to cook good food easily, and a food processor could get you a step closer to achieving your wildest culinary ambitions. But there are so many makes, models and attachments that it seems impossible to choose the right one. Fortunately, Which? is here to help. 

With our extensive testing and research, where we look at how food processors tackle a range of tasks from chopping and slicing to whisking and whipping. We test 14 key functions on each food processor to make sure they'll make you life easier.

We can help you make the right decision to save you time and effort.

  • Our tests assess how well food is chopped, mixed, whisked, kneaded and grated in a wide range of food processors
  • We look at the noisiness of a machine, something you can't check in the shops, to alert you to the nuisance models
  • Choosing a Best Buy food processor helps you avoid a plate full of mush or stodgy ingredients instead of evenly cut vegetables or cake that is light as a feather

The Best Buy food processors aren't always the most expensive. Find out which models we recommended with a £1 trial to Which?
