A great food processor is like having a second pair of hands in the kitchen, as they help you prep ingredients quickly.
From chopping onions to mincing meat, these versatile appliances take seconds to slice, grate and chop – most can even knead dough, too.
They’re not the cheapest kitchen utensil but, given that we’ve all become chefs and bakers in the making during lockdown, now seems as good a time as any to invest.
Online electrical retailer, AO.com, has reported sales of food preparation appliances have risen by 510% year-on-year as Brits seek to recreate date night and ‘fakeaways’ at home – and a food processor is in the top three.
So, without further ado, here are the best five food processors to help you whip up a feast in no time.
