A few FAQs

Question 1: Should I buy a food processor or blender?

food processor is great for chopping, slicing, shredding, mixing and pureeing everything from crunchy veggies right through to soft cheeses. Take the hard work out of your traditionally more labour-intensive tasks such as kneading dough, and utilise the variety of blades and discs available with each to provide a wide variety of ingredient shapes and sizes.

Blenders, on the other hand, are better for liquids and is used to create smooth textures for things like smoothies, soups and sauces... Or perhaps an icy cocktail to enjoy as the sun sets!

Question 2: What's the difference between a food processor & a food chopper?

A food processor has a feed tube, multiple blades or discs and a larger bowl capacity than a food chopper. When slicing and shredding, food is pushed through the feed tube into discs just below. Food can also be chopped, mixed or puréed with blades in the bowl of the food processor.


Food processors can handle larger recipes and offer more versatility due to the multiple blades for specific tasks such as chopping, shredding, slicing and julienning. KitchenAid food processors are available with a variety of bowl capacities and feed tube sizes for accommodating bigger batches and larger ingredients like whole sweet potatoes.

 

A food chopper is a compact appliance or manually operated kitchen tool that’s perfect for quick, simple food prep tasks and smaller recipes. An electric food chopper usually has a smaller bowl containing a single, multi-purpose blade that can chop, purée or mix. Food choppers do not have a feed tube but do often feature a drizzle basin to help emulsify liquids.

You can use a food chopper to make salad dressing, chop nuts to sprinkle on a dessert or purée your signature hummus recipe. Select KitchenAid® food choppers include a whisk accessory so you can also whisk, whip and stir because every dessert is better with fresh whipped cream on top.
