Whizz, whisk, chop and slice, the best food processors with the minumum fuss.

Most time savvy individuals are already familiar with these multi-tasking machines and if you are not already an owner, fear not as there are some fantastic models currently on the market to take care of your chopping, slicing, blending, mixing and whisking requirements. But while all of them claim to make fast and light work of food preparation tasks, there are other factors to consider such as price, how much room it will take up (on the kitchen counter or stored away) and the machine’s weight if you plan on keeping in a cupboard.  Price alone should not be a factor, a smaller less expensive model may meet your needs if you do not need to make large quantities on a regular basis.  Most machines chop, slice, grate and mix, but not all of them whisk, whip and knead.  Once you have an idea of what you need, these are the models that made our cut.
