Food processors are kitchen workhorses. Use them to liquefy and puree, slice, dice and grate with the flick of a switch. The basic food processor comes with a bowl and blades to slice, dice, shred and julienne. It's ideal for products that you want to cut without liquefying, such as vegetables, herbs and nuts.
Options overview. What I should know before purchasing a food processor.
Most motors are between ½
hp and 1 hp in size. All processors come with either a plastic or stainless steel bowl that varies in size from 2 qt. to 6 qt. and some units come with a "continuous feed" attachment.
Safety and sanitation. What should I look for in safety and sanitation features?
Food processors can be difficult and cumbersome to clean. Some units disassemble more easily than others, making them easier to clean, and all are equipped with safety devices to prevent operation when the unit is open.
Our best selling and most versatile food processor is the Robot Coupe R2N. For larger, faster-paced operations, BigTray recommends the Robot Coupe CL50.
