Why Which? food processor reviews are better

We test food processors more thoroughly than anyone else. We're independent - we don't accept advertising or freebies, so you can trust our reviews to give you the full and impartial truth about each product.

We check how well each food processor chops, slices, grates, mixes, kneads and blends. The best food processors will put you on the road to realising your culinary dreams, but the worst will have you scratching your head over their attachments, make a mess of your ingredients and take lots of fruitless scrubbing to get clean. A food processor should make your life easier - use our food processor reviews to make sure you don't end up wasting money on a disappointment.
