The Best Food Processors for the Job

from KitchenAid Make It Happen

The food processor is the swiss army knife of the kitchen. They can handle an endless amount of food prep tasks. And just when you think you’ve discovered them all, you get surprised by another. It chops, it minces, it grinds, it mixes, it kneads, and it doesn’t stop there. But choosing the best food processor for your needs isn’t about having every bell and whistle. It’s about having the right one based on your very unique skill set, storage preferences, and culinary aspirations. When you’re thinking about which KitchenAid® food processor to get, here are some helpful considerations.

YOUR PERFECT FOOD PROCESSOR TYPE

Picture your 5–10 favorite recipes. Have them in mind? The odds are good that a food processor can handle a good amount of your prep work—like a trusty sous chef. That said, choosing the right style and size is key.

Single-Task Food Processors

Whipping up a quick pesto sauce? Blending an herb-packed chimichurri for a grilled flank steak? Making some homemade nut butter, baby food, a smoothie, or a vegan-friendly side dish? A single-task food processor chops, mixes, purees, and handles more recipes than you ever imagined. They deliver functionality without frills—and just enough capacity to get the job done right. For simple performance and convenience, the  KitchenAid® 5 Cup Food Processor is a crowd favorite.

Multi-Task Food Processors

By adding attachments, you can really multiply your food processor uses. Making potato pancakes? Add a disc and avoid grating potatoes for what feels like an eternity. Slicing zucchini for baked parmesan zucchini chips? Don’t mess with the mandoline. Just add a thick slicing disc – offered with the KitchenAid® 7 Cup Food Processor Plus. With more capacity and dynamic attachments, your culinary ideas will be churning in no time.

MAXIMIZE YOUR MINUTES — IN SECONDS

Unless you’re a professional chef, you probably have a maximum of one hour to cook—possibly even 30 minutes or less. Since every minute matters, your food processor should save you precious time. Made with easy-attaching components, we’ve made KitchenAid® food processors a snap to set up.

QUICKEN THE CLEANUP

Some food processors have nooks and crannies that turn cleaning into a time-consuming affair. But with the sealed, leak-resistant work bowl from KitchenAid, less food gets trapped in the bowl and lid. Cleaning couldn’t be easier. Just wash with hot, soapy water or stick the dishwasher-safe components in the top rack—and you’re done.

SAVE PRECIOUS STORAGE SPACE

In a perfect world, we’d all have endless kitchen storage. But the world isn’t perfect, so we turned a bulky appliance into a space-saving wonder. With in-bowl storage, cord wrap, and a reduced footprint, food processors like the KitchenAid® 9 Cup Food Processor can be stored discreetly. But we’ll warn you—some home cooks use it so much, they just leave it right on the counter.
