Food processors have become an invaluable tool in many kitchens across the UK, so when you want to invest in a brand-new one, you want to know that you will be buying a quality model and be getting great value for your money.

When buying a new food processor it is important to know that they are very different to a kitchen blender, so don’t get the two mixed up when you are choosing a processor to handle all the dicing, chopping, grating, slicing, kneading and whipping actions you need.

To put it simply, blenders are used to break down foods into a liquid, so while they are great for making smoothies, milkshakes, purees and smooth soups, they are not built for keeping your food in a solid form.

Let’s take a look at our favourite food processors currently available on the market that deliver great service, durability and have enough accessories to meet your needs.
