10 best food processors
Ideal for smaller kitchens, this food processor is neat and compact. It automatically adjusts its speed to suit the task in hand and the mini-bowl is good for chopping the likes of onions without messing up the larger bowl.

This is a great all-rounder and can even mix an excellent cake batter, despite the lack of beater attachment. It is quiet, gets the job done quickly and evenly and its extra-large feed tube is great for processing large foods like apples.
The Artisan Food Processor, shown here in Empire Red, is stylish, durable and extremely reliable. The choice of many top chefs, it is particularly good at grating and slicing, and is one of the quietest models around.
This is the latest in Dualit's range of fashionable kitchen gadgets. With a 900W motor, it's the most powerful compact food processor within its price range and is ingeniously designed so that you can store both bowls inside each other.
Aimed at the keen cook, the Multipro Excel has an incredible 55 functions including juicing and grinding spices or coffee beans. It even offers a built-in weighing function, so you don't need to switch ingredients from bowl to processor when following recipes.

The unique feature of this model is its tilted 1.5 litre bowl, which means you avoid all the usual food-processor frustrations of food sticking under the blades and to the bowl. It comes with three attachments, all of which work superbly, leaving you with a serious bit of kit for a very reasonable cost.
Part of the Jamie Oliver Electrics range, this model is so lightweight that it's easy to worry at its quality when you first remove it from the box. But it is extremely well-built and tackles all of its tasks well ? pureeing and mixing like a dream.
Mini-choppers don't have the best reputation, but this one chops everything from onions to parsley in record time. It's fantastically easy to assemble, use and clean and left-handers will like the way the bowl fits on.
Made from sturdy die-cast metal, the Elite 2.8L is a handsome addition to any kitchen work surface and benefits from special "seal tight" technology that prevents any food and liquid escaping.
The rimless surface of the Philips Robust gives this food processor a contemporary look and, with a bowl larger than any other processor on the market, it can handle the toughest ingredients.
A feast of sharp slicers and beautiful blenders for you to choose from
