How we rate food processors

Our review compares food processors on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which food processor they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 491 Australians for their feedback on the food processor(s) they’ve purchased and used in the last three years.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their food processor brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a food processor brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Performance: the food processor was able to blend multiple food types consistently, and performed as expected over the time of use.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and performance of the food processor.
  • Features & functionality: the food processor had additional settings and features that improved its functionality and performance (i.e. storage box, multiple attachments, variable speed dial, etc.).
  • Design: the design of the food processor was functional (i.e. not oversized, safety clamps, etc.) and was aesthetically pleasing.
  • Ease of use: the food processor was simple to use and came with sufficient instructions.
  • Ease of cleaning: the food processor was easy to clean (i.e. came with detachable parts that could be handwashed or placed in the dishwasher, etc.).

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

3. Ninja

Ninja food processors review

Ratings result

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.

Editor’s notes

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.

4. Kmart

Kmart food processor review

Ratings result

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.

Editor’s notes

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.

What is a food processor?

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.

What is the difference between a food processor and a food grinder?

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.
