The year is 2015, and we’re looking for the best food processor your budget can afford.
I know a lot of people quit on their food processor purchases because of the high price they immediately encounter. So, we’ll just have to get this out of our system right off the bat. Yes, food processors are premium kitchen items and they don’t come cheap. You can’t expect a food processor at a price of your average blender or cheap chopper; it just doesn’t work that way. These machines are beasts in the kitchen, and they’ll leave an accordingly-sized dent in your home-budget.
I’m a great lover of fine cuisine and cooking, but there are so many tedious things one needs to do before the meal is ready sometimes I don’t even feel like starting at all. Luckily, a good food processor will eliminate all of those pesky cooking aspects and let you dedicate your cooking time to the things that bring you joy. Of course, if these machines are out of your price range, you can always go for a smaller and cheaper chopper. Choppers are food processor’s little brothers after all.
Best food processor for your household will introduce many benefits to your cooking and overall diet. The key to eating healthy is preparing your meals with fresh ingredients. That brings us to one of those boring moments in the kitchen, slicing and dicing. I just hate when I have to chop everything manually before I can use it for my dish. Luckily, food processors got your back on this one. They’ll save you a ton of time over the week/month, and they’ll do a much better job than you ever possibly could on top of that. Prolonged kitchen acrobatics can be strenuous on your hands and wrists as well, so that’s just one more thing you’ll never have to worry about again.
Now that we know these little guys are definitely good to have within reach, we can focus on today and see what models bring the best quality-price ratio to the table. Just in case you’re still not entirely convinced food processors are a good idea, I’ll mention such kitchen “delights” like shredding mozzarella, dicing pepperoni and tomatoes, chopping onions, juliening potatoes, kneading doe… If these are some of the actions you never want to have to do again, just keep on reading.
Before we get to the actual winner of our little food processing contest I’ll just have to say the competition was relentless. We had to introduce numerous grading-points and factors in order to go deep enough to differentiate the best of the best. It all started pretty smooth, but as we progressed and left more and more models behind, things started getting increasingly difficult. Don’t get me wrong, I found great pleasure in doing this as I really wanted to get to the bottom of the best food processor conundrum as well. It’s been a while since I wrote an article this specific, so a proper research had to take place.
So, things like overall performance, power, array of different blades, connection of the motor to the blades, and a lot of different factors were taken into account and graded. As the rounds progressed, the optimal machines slowly started to emerge until we reached to the very end with just one food processor left.
It’s our winner I’m about to introduce in a short while. The competition was very tough, as I’ve already said, and our today’s winners really showed a great level of excellence. It was no small feat beating all of the competition on the market, but I think we really ended up with the product that’s definitely worth the money invested. Worth as in it’ll save you a bunch of time preparing your food for you and it’ll do it much better and with a much finer touch to it. With a good food processor (not to mention the best) you’ll be able to do pretty much anything that comes to your mind as long as it involves chopping stuff or kneading doe.
Let’s see our winner
Ok, that was it as far as introduction and beating around the bush is concerned, time for some real meat of this article.
The model that beat all the rest during our testing period is the Sous Chef BFP800XL Food Processor, coming to us from Breville. It’s really an exceptional model, and you won’t be getting a good bang for your buck with it, you’ll be getting a nuclear explosion for your buck. It’ll be such a little helper in your kitchen, you’ll be wondering how you ever managed to live and cook without it.
As far as different slicing opportunities go, this bad boy comes with 3 different blades 5 discs with multiple functions. The feed chute is a special delight; it’s 5.5” wide, and it’ll take most of your favorite vegetables and fruits without previous cutting into pieces. The bowls are BPA-free, they’re 16 and 2.5 cup big. It features a fancy LCD display as well.
It’s a delight to use, and pretty easy to store, which is a pretty big concern with food processors since they tend to be somewhat heavy and cumbersome. It chops stuff like crazy, and makes pizza dough like you wouldn’t believe. We really enjoyed testing it, and I’ll leave it at just stating a lot of good food was made throughout these tests 🙂
