How we test

Overall score includes:

Performance (60%)
Ease of use (40%)

We assessed how well the food processors performed across a range of processing tasks: slicing carrots, chopping breadcrumbs, grating cheese, kneading pastry and emulsifying mayonnaise. For models with a separate blender attachment we also pureed leek and potato soup.

We also looked at how easy it was to use the controls, read the labels, lock and release the bowls and attachments, and clean and store the unit.
