What is a Food Processor
A food processor is a multi-functional device which is really irreplaceable among kitchen appliances. It can cut, chop, whisk, grate and even knead.
These kitchen appliances have become really popular with housekeepers due to the wide variety of cooking options they provide and their relatively compact size. A good food processor will do the most difficult food preparing tasks for you, so you can save a lot of time.
What Features to Compare
The performance of food processors depends on their power and ease of speed control. The power varies from 80 to 1600 Watts. Thus, the power of 400-600 Watts is enough foк cutting vegetables. However, if you are likely to knead the dough, the power should not be less than 1000 Watts.
Generally, food processors provide a number of speed that ranges for different operation modes (juicer, blender, kneading machine, etc.). Some models have fixed speed settings (4-15 modes). And others have smooth, manually controlled speed switch. The more speed modes a food processor has, the more dishes you can prepare. Also, when choosing a food processor, you should pay attention to a pulse mode. It is a temporary acceleration which is switched on at the end of the work for better and faster preparation of food.
Choose the design of the food processor carefully. It may vary depending on models and price, but all of them have common components - the bowl and the blades (discs). Normally, the bowl is made of transparent plastic, but sometimes it's made of glass or metal. Customers generally prefer to use plastic bowls since they don't break and it's easy to track the whole process.
Depending on the size of the bowl, the portions will vary. If you're going to cook for a big family, calculate a portion for each. Bowls that can hold up to 1200- 1500 ml should be enough for a family of 4-5 people.
Some models have two bowls of different sizes. The process becomes much easier since you can chop everything in a small bowl, move the ingredients into a big one and continue the process.
The number and type of blades (or discs) determine the capabilities of a food processor. Apart from basic blades for chopping the ingredients (different blades and graters), you might have an extra set of attachments that will turn a food processor into a juicer, kneading machine, ice crusher or blender.
Most kitchen food processors are quite large but they make up for it by offering a variety of features and levels of performance. However, despite their dimensions, kitchen food processors are compact and perfectly fit most mid-sized kitchens. The casing can be either metal or plastic. Metal casing is considered to be more reliable and long-lasting, however, plastic is also rather impact-resistant.
Usability is the main option when choosing the right processor. The major benefits of using food processors is a number of different features which make the process of cooking easier and quicker. The best food processors usually have such add-ons as a safety lock, a blade locking system, non-slip feet and a cord storage area.
