A food processor is a versatile kitchen appliance that can quickly and easily chop, slice, shred, grind and puree almost any food. Some models can also assist the home cook in making citrus and vegetable juice, beating cake batter, kneading bread dough, beating egg whites, and grinding meat and vegetables.

Things You Need to Know Before Buying a Cuisinart Hong Kong Food Processor

Versatile and efficient, a good processor will likely become indispensable in the kitchen. It can be used to shred cheese, make biscuit dough, puree baby food, grind spices, and chop up salsa ingredients. But before you head to the store, consider these factors to ensure you select the best food processor for your needs.


Most food processors only have one motor speed, and most have a small tube opening at the top that enables you to easily add other ingredients. They usually come with a “pusher” that fits into the tube and helps to feed larger items, keeps fingers safe, and acts as a lid. Make sure the machine you choose has a “pulse” button to give small bursts of power (good for rough chopping or quick dough kneading). You’ll appreciate a smooth touchpad for the controls, which is easier to clean than raised buttons, as well as dishwasher-safe parts, although it is recommended to hand-wash the blades to keep them from dulling.


Make sure the machine you choose is powerful enough to handle the tough jobs: kneading stiff dough, chopping raw carrots, or shredding hard cheese, for example. Otherwise, you run the risk of the processor not chopping or combining uniformly. Or worse yet, the motor burns out. For a full-sized processor (9 cups or larger), look for a motor that’s at least 600 watts.


Food processors come in all sizes, from tiny 3-cup choppers to 20-cup versions that could function in a restaurant kitchen. What size is best for you depends on the number of people you typically cook for and the recipes you’ll prepare with it. If you’re usually cooking for a family of four or preparing a single-batch dough, an 11-cup size processor should suffice. If you’re often chopping a small number of herbs or nuts, or making small quantities of sauce, seek out a processor that includes a small work bowl and blade, or invest in a Cuisinart separate 3-cup “prep” processor for these tasks.

Attachments and Accessories

Some food processors come with an entire assortment of accessories intended to maximize your use of the machine. These can include different sized work bowls and blades, disks that slice and grate foods to varying degrees of thickness, and even attachments and speed settings that turn the processor into a citrus juicer or a bread dough kneader. Before you spend the extra money on a machine with all these bells and whistles, consider whether you’d actually use them

Brand and Price

The two leaders in the food processor category are Cuisinart and KitchenAid, and their products are consistently ranked highest. An 11-cup and larger versions from these two brands will set you back HK$1,000 or more. Other brands include Hamilton Beach and Black & Decker, while these secondary brands might offer some interesting features and accessories, often their motors aren’t as powerful. But ultimately, the decision comes down to your own personal preference, as well as your budget.
