Features to consider when buying a food processor
  • Types: Most food processors come in one of five categories: blender, mixer, all-in-one, hand-operated and commercial.
  • Storage and Capacity: Small food processors store easily and typically hold 3 to 4 cups, while larger models are bulkier, but handle roughly 10 cups of food at a time.
  • Cleaning: Some models come with dishwasher-friendly parts, eliminating extra dishes.
  • Warranty: Warranties vary by brand, make and model but most machines come with a minimum, limited one-year guarantee.
  • Wattage: Power levels range from 150 to 1200 watts and higher—the greater the wattage the more power you’ll get for high-powered food processor recipes like nut butters.
  • Noise: How loud your machine is depends on several factors including wattage, the food you’re processing and how sturdy your surface area is, so keep that in mind when whipping up fresh food during nap time or early mornings.
  • Attachments: Many models come with different blades for additional functions like kneeding dough, dicing, or julienne. Some even include egg whisks, refrigerator lids and cleaning tools.
