5 Best Food Processors For Gifting
All food processors are not made the same. While one may be perfect for one person, that same one will not do what another person needs or wants it to do. For that reason, we decided to pick out five of the best food processors that we could find and let you know the pros and possibly cons of each one. It was not an easy task, by any means, but it was fun to play around in the kitchen chopping, dicing and even cleaning up.
We told you that this task was not easy and I’m amazed that we could stop at just five! It was nearly impossible to narrow it down to just these five and now to have to narrow it down from here seems even more difficult!
In a hurry – Check out our comparison chart of top 5 food processors
We decided to review the design and power of each food processor as well as the capacity, equipment, features and finally the price. To make things easier, we are listing all of these categories under each food processor. This will make that things do not get more confusing than they already might be for you and us.
Top 5 Best Food Processor Reviews
Important Food Processor features:
- Range of Capabilities: Your food processor should have a broad range of capabilities. It should work as a food blender as well as a food mixer. Food processor uses are varied. You can use yours as a baby food processor, or a mixer for salsas, smoothies, or dips.
- Plenty of Space:While you may want a small food processor, you also want it to have enough space to make plenty of food. Look for at least 9 cups of capacity. Also pay attention to the dimensions of the feed tube. When using the unit as a food chopper, you will want to be able to insert large pieces of food to chop up. That way you can use your device for even more food processor recipes.
- Ease of Use and Options:Good food processors have a range of speeds and options. Controls should be intuitive.
- Safety.It is extremely important that your mini food chopper be safe to use. The bowl needs to be able to lock securely into the base, and the top needs to lock firmly as well. The unit should only turn on when it is closed and everything is locked.
All of these food processors are wonderful and each one has at least one unique feature that most of the other ones do not have. While we are sure that many of us would love the Ninja Food Processor and Breville Sous Chef Food Processor, as it is the one that does the most, it is not in the budget. For that reason, it goes to number two on our list of the best.
Our number one choice out of all of these food processors is the Braun 12 Cup Food Processor with the Ultra Quiet but Powerful Motor. It is a versatile machine that will allow anyone to chop, slice and dice, yet everyone can also knead bread dough and use it as a juicer. Plus, the compact design will allow everyone to fit it anywhere in their kitchen easily. The price is right too at just under $150.
It was a difficult decision that we had to make, but at least we had fun during the process of testing and trying out all of these food processors. We are not going to let the fun end though. We are going to get right back into the kitchen and work on julienning some of those potatoes and get right back to cooking.
