Guidelines for Buying a Food Processor

Buying a food processor can be difficult for someone who knows nothing about kitchen tools. Be sure to do your research, or you may end up with something that lacks the functions you need. Read these tips to guide you in your food processor purchase.

Budget

There are plenty of choices in every price point. Set a limit that your budget will allow. A lower price point generally means fewer features compared to high-end products, but cheaper food processors may be more than enough for your needs if you are not a serious cook. Think about what you will like it for and how frequently? There’s no need to overspend and pay for features you will never use.

Flexibility

Some of the best food processors are multitaskers, ensuring that you get the most from your investment. The Panasonic MK-8710, for example, is a multi-purpose food processor. It comes with different attachments and accessories that you can use for other purposes. This processor can be a juicer, blender, citrus juicer, dry mill, stand mixer for whipping, stand mixer for kneading and meat grinder.

Capacity

If you have a big household, you should choose a food processor that accommodates mixing and grinding large amounts of ingredients at a time. This will help you cook faster, blend easier and serve better.

Accessories

When buying a food processor that is used mainly for dicing and slicing, pick a product with a stainless-steel blade. This material is rust resistant, durable and easy to clean.

Pulse function

It is always better to have full control during food processing. Get a product that offers pulse function so that the processor spins or cuts based on the designated speed setting and stops once the button is released.

Cleaning and storage 

Consider all the parts of the food processor and check out if they are accessible and easy to remove. See also if they are dishwasher safe.
