I’m considering a food processor. Not sure I can justify the cost for the few things I might use it for. What do you use them for? What type do you recommend? Are the ‘cheapies’ any good for basic veggie chopping / coleslaw making .. and maybe pulverizing ingredients for home-made museli bars and patties etc.?

  • I am looking for a good and reasonable food processor too. I have shortlisted Breville one. Was looking for some more suggestions here :)

  • I’d definitely recommend a nutribullet. A little dearer than a regular blender, however it is definitely worth it.

  • I have had Kenwood for about 20 years and still going strong. Love it!

  • I had a sunbeam one for nearly 10 years. Highly recommend. It cost about $100 from memory and I used it for shortbread, peanut butter, hommus and almond butter.

  • The Kmart one is surprisingly good and value for money. Also rated really good on choice

  • I am also in the market for new processor as mine was a cheap plastic one which cracked. I used mine for chopping veggies, making dough and pulsing some lentils.

  • I have a Breville, it wasn’t overly expensive, but I hardly use it. One of those things I thought I would use a lot and then just didn’t

  • I have a breville food processor and to be honest I don’t use it that often since it’s a pain to clean. It is however very handy and works great.

  • if you are unsure of outlaying the cost, why don’t you buy one second hand and see how much. you use it. You can find some cheap ones on Facebook marketplace, gumtree and in places like cash converters

  • Kitchen Aid is my favorite brand. & looks fine in our kitchen, hope the holds! xxx

  • I have a BERLINI from target it’s really good had it for 8 years and still going good.

  • I have one of the cheaper one and its ok for me.

  • I just have a Kmart blender from about $75, I cut and blend with it and it does for me the job. I do also a lot with the stick blender, which I find handy for soup sauces and smoothies.

  • I have a kitchen aid food processor and I love it. It’s on the more expensive side, but I use it for lots of things. I use it in place of a blender, making bliss balls, cookie dough, quickly slicing veggies for dinner, grating cheese or veggies etc. my favourite thing about my food processor is that it came with a free dicing attachment as part of a promo deal, so I can throw veggies in and have them evenly sliced. Great for soups, salad, and just avoiding dicing onion because I hate it! It’s my favourite kitchen item.
