How we test food processors and stand mixers
So we can recommend the best food processors and stand mixers, we assess how well food is chopped, mixed, whisked, kneaded and grated in a wide range of machines. We also check how loud each machine we test is, which is something you can’t check in the shops, to alert you to the nuisance models.
Stand mixer, food processor or mini chopper?
With so many stand mixers, food processors and mini choppers out there, it’s hard to know what type of gadget you need. These are the main tasks each machine is best suited for:
- Stand mixers (also called kitchen machines) – mixing cakes, kneading dough, whipping and whisking
- Food processors – chopping, slicing, mixing and grating
- Mini chopper – chopping or puréeing small quantities of food quickly.
Take a look at the full list of pros and cons in our guide to choosing the best food processor.
