When it comes to being more efficient in the kitchen, a food processor can make all the difference. Take a look at our favorite slicers and dicers of 2021.

With a food processor, the manual labor of food prep essentially disappears.. These controls let you select among high/low, on/off, and pulse.. The Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor is perfect for those who like experimenting with all kinds of cooking, as the slicing disc, shredding disc, and blade make it easy to chop, mix, knead, and puree just about anything.. The bowl holds 10 cups, so it is large enough to handle most standard dinner recipes .. If you’re taking stock of your kitchen counter and realizing you don’t have much space to work with, the Ninja Duo Auto-iQ Blender is perfect.. The machine also comes with two 16-ounce travel cups, which are great for taking drinks on the go.. The high-quality stainless steel blades hold up well over time, so you can count on using the device for years to come.. If you want to try using a food processor, but you don’t have the additional kitchen space to dedicate to it, this attachment works with your KitchenAid stand mixer.. The KitchenAid Food Processor Attachment fits the front of any KitchenAid stand mixer, using the mixer’s power to shred, dice, and chop any ingredients you might need.. With this attachment, you’ll be turning your KitchenAid stand mixer into an even more powerful and versatile machine.. The bowl, lid, and blade are safe for the dishwasher, so your cleanup job will be pretty easy.. With this food processor, you’ll be able to slice your food exactly how you want it with precision.. The Sous Chef Pro features 24 slice thickness settings and several feed chute sizes— like an extra-wide feed chute for longer slices and a mini one that prevents long, thin ingredients from tipping over.. While the Cuisinart Duet Food Processor & Blender is indeed a powerful 500-watt, 3-cup processor with an included feeding tube and shred disc, it is also a seven-speed blender .. Personally, one of our favorite features is the device’s size.

We put top food processors to the test to find out which models are worthy of your kitchen.

It's hard to jump in and figure out the best food processor for your chopping, grinding, dicing and food prep kitchen task needs.. This 11-cup KitchenAid food processor model worked well, but it wasn't the best performer at blending and chopping.. However, you will get a lot of attachments, and it's a good food processor for shredding and slicing since it comes with multiple discs for different shred and slice sizes.. CuisinartIf you need to process large amounts of food, this Cuisinart model with a 14-cup food processor gets the job done.. Hamilton Beach Professional Dicing Food Processor (Update: Unavailable): I was impressed by the design of the Hamilton Beach processor, but it wasn't the winner in performance, and I found the button labels and noise level to be a bit bothersome.. Oster Designed for Life 14-Cup Food Processor : This food processor just didn't perform well.. While food processors can perform many different tasks, I chose tests that represented the core functions of a food processor.. This tests the grating disc performance as well as the usability of the mouth's width and the food processor's food pusher.. I tested models ranging from 11- to 14-cup capacity, but you can get food processors that come with mini bowl and mini chopper options and bowls as small as 3 cups.. For a household with two or more people, I'd recommend at least an 8-cup model rather than a mini food processor and, if you have the storage space, spring for a large food processor, just in case.. Most recipes involving food processors specify mixing or chopping at either a high or low speed and for that reason, you'll want a processor with at least two speeds and a powerful motor.. There are some food processors with just one speed, but that's extremely limiting, so look for a food processor with at least some range of speeds.. While your food processor is primarily two spinning blades, there are plenty of other attachments that can expand your processor's capabilities.

The best food processor for attachments. If it's a versatile food processor you're looking for, the NutriBullet NBP50100 Food Processor may be the best choice.. The Ninja Professional 9-Cup Food Processor is exemplary in this, with a range of intelligent programs and several attachments, all for under $100.It has functions to Chop, Puree, Dough, and Disc.. When testing the best food processors we made sure to use every attachment on offer, meaning we will often slice, chop, grate, spiralize, and even make pizza dough.. Often it's the motor found in the base of a food processor that makes it so space-consuming, so opting for a mighty Ninja food processor could be costly in terms of space, but worth it for the high-powered functions.
