A food processor helps you chop vegetables, grind meat, shred cheese, and perform other usually time-consuming tasks in seconds. You can also use these fantastic appliances to make mayonnaise and pesto that far surpass — and cost less than — what you’d get at the store. 

While testing 7 food processors, I sliced 7 pounds of potatoes, grated a pound of parmesan, made seven batches of basil pesto, ground 10 pounds of beef, shredded 4 pounds of mozzarella cheese, emulsified eight batches of mayonnaise, mixed and kneaded seven batches of pizza dough, and chopped 7 pounds of onion, a pound of celery, and 2 pounds of carrots.

In addition to our top picks, we cover other models we tested, our testing methodology, and common FAQs at the end of the guide.
