Breville was rated five stars for multiple categories, including performance, features and functionality, design, ease of use and overall satisfaction, with four stars for ease of cleaning and value for money.
Breville has been a popular brand in Aussie households since 1932, creating a wide range of kitchen appliances such as ovens, blenders, coffee machines and kettles. Its food processors range offers multiple models under the ‘Wizz’ line-up, from the Mini Wizz through to larger units capable of tackling multiple food types.
The Kitchen Wizz 11 model features a micro-serrated quad-blade system, multiple chute sizes to feed your food into the processor, variable slicing disc with a safety system kicking in if the lid is unexpectedly opened during operation. The top-of-the-line Kitchen Wizz Peel & Dice model includes a 2000W induction motor, 3.6L bowl, multiple cutting, peeling and dicing accessories, as well as an LED display system.
Sunbeam was rated five stars for performance, value for money, design, ease of use and overall satisfaction, with four stars for ease of cleaning and features and functionality.
Well known with kitchen circles, Sunbeam offers a number of food processors to choose from, including the MultiProcessor, Multi Processor Plus, and Café Series Food Processor. The Multi Processor Plus includes a 2L capacity bowl, 1.5L glass blender jug, multiple feed chutes in different sizes as well as multiple blades, including dough blade, slicing blade, grating blade and shredding blade, along with a whisk to help whip up creations.
The Café Series processor includes an extra wide chute to help you put in all your ingredients, Auto Pulse function to help you get the texture you’re after, as well as a storage drawer at the bottom to help you store away all of the attachments. The attachments available include variable slicing blade, processing blade, shredding disc, grating disc and Julienne disc.
Ninja was rated five stars for features and functionality and ease of cleaning, with four stars for ease of use, design, performance and overall satisfaction, and three stars for value for money.
Ninja kicks up a no-fuss collection with its kitchen range, offering a variety of multi-cookers, air fryers, blenders and food processors, although it doesn’t have the range of other brands. At the time of writing, there’s just one option listed on the brand’s website ─ the Ninja Professional Food Processor (BN650). It features Auto IQ One Touch Intelligence, which lets you chop, puree, slice and mix with a single touch of a button. Plus, you can choose several manual programs including low, high, and pulse.
The Ninja food processor even comes with a dough blade, so you can make everything from sweet cookie dough to savoury pizza bases! Some other attachments include a disc adapter, chopping blades, a reversible slicing and grating disc and a 2.1L food processor bowl.
Kmart rounded out the results with three stars in all categories, including performance, value for money, features and functionality, design, ease of use, ease of cleaning and overall satisfaction.
Kmart’s affordable Anko appliances have been a staple in many Australian households, especially with the pie maker and cheap air fryer range which both have dedicated Facebook pages with cult followings. The most expensive Kmart food processor is still cheaper than many other budget-friendly models from other brands, yet it similarly features a bowl capacity of 2L and functions such as chopping, grating, slicing and kneading. There are additionally two speed settings and a pulse function.
And if you aren’t after anything particularly powerful, the Mini Chopper – which features a 500ml capacity, two-speed motor and stainless steel blade – could be a very affordable option for those who only occasionally whip up delicacies.
Not all brands in the market qualify for our ratings (based on minimum survey sample size), but that doesn’t mean they’re not worth considering. Here are several more brands to check out before making a purchase decision.
A food processor is a kitchen appliance that helps prepare different ingredients like potatoes, carrots, and nuts by using a motor and various attachments to slice, chop, shred, dice, knead, puree, mix, whisk and mix. Some models also come with blender jugs to make juices using your food processor. Keep in mind that some food processors will need the ingredients to be chopped, depending on the size of the feed chute.
Unlike a food processor, meat grinders and other food grinders are limited to the grinding function and can make dishes like sausages and patties. It’s like how coffee grinders are specifically designed to turn coffee beans into ground coffee. These generally have a metal body and include accessories like grinding plates and a pusher. On the other hand, food processors can perform a variety of functions, and cut foods in multiple ways (i.e. puree, knead, etc.) and come with interchangeable attachments.
