Read these reviews on food processors in Singapore. To find one that will work best for you!

Food Processor Vs Blender

What’s the difference?

The line starts to blur if you look at multifunctional blenders:

But the main difference is:

Blenders are for making smooth liquids (i.e. pureed soup or smoothies).

While food processors are more for slicing, grating, shredding, or chopping up  thicker solids (i.e. dry food) to a desired size!

Blades of a food processor are generally ridged and/or sharper than those in a blender. The positioning of the individual blades may be different too.

Another physical difference is the wide bowl that food processors use. Blenders in comparison, use tall and narrow jugs.

Either device will save you time in the kitchen!

You don’t need a separate blender when you have the Philips Compact Food Processor HR7320/01! Smoothies and nut milks can be made with the included blender jar.

It’s lightweight and easy to take apart when it’s time for clean up! Grinding chilies and other spices is a snappy task with this food processor! Albeit too noisy when everyone is still asleep!

The motor speed is adequate. One user event tried blending fish meat for fishcakes with success! Another made cauliflower rice!

And one user observed that the feeding tube doubles as a measuring cup!  Just watch yourself when handling the blades – they’re very sharp!

Most reviews for the Philips Compact Food Processor HR7320/01 are positive. But if you like to bake a lot, you may find that it can’t mix butter and flour as well.

We still highly recommend it for anyone who needs more help in the kitchen! As it offers great value-for money!

Philips Compact Food Processor HR7320/01

Pros:

2. Tefal Multifunction Easyforce Food Processor DO2461

Store all 6 accessories (aside from the blender jug) neatly inside the Tefal Multifunction Easyforce Food Processor DO2461!

There are an astounding 25 functions with this food maker, including kneading and emulsifying! It can shred and grate vegetables, make smoothies and bean milks, nut butter, etc.

Watch it in action:

While the price is similar to the Philips Compact Food Processor HR7320/01, the Tefal Multifunction Easyforce Food Processor DO2461 is not as beginner-friendly!

In fact, a few users complained that the manual is not helpful! And it can take a while to figure out its operation.

One user also felt that the single blade was insufficient for the capacity of the chopper. The actual capacity of the food processor is closer to 1.4L rather than the stated 2.4L too.

If you have experience with food processors, you will still find the Tefal Multifunction Easyforce Food Processor DO2461 great value-for-money because of its multi-funtionality!

Tefal Multifunction Easyforce Food Processor DO2461

Pros:

  • Large capacity
  • Blades are extremely sharp!
  • Suction cups at the bottom
  • Easy operation once you know how (3 speeds and 1 pulse mode)
  • Lightweight
  • Long warranty
  • Clean appealing design

Cons:

  • Quite loud
  • Does not feel very solid (plastic parts feel thin compared to Philips and Kenwood products)
  • Not recommended for beginners
  • Not for grinding meat
  • Power: 700 W
  • Working Capacity: 2.4 L (Bowl), 1.8 L (Jar)

3. KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor 5KFP0719B

How about a food processor that complements or elevates your kitchen style?

The KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor 5KFP0719B comes in silver, cream, red and matte grey or black! They also have a great food mixer in the same range!

Watch this video (Assembly and how to use it):

Watch this video (Covers the use of the accessories):

Users are pleased with the build quality. You don’t have to twist the bowl (or the lid) on/ off! And the feed tube cater mechanism is intentionally designed to accommodate both liquid and solid ingredients.

However, the food processor has limited uses compared to other cheaper models. But it does those functions well enough.

That includes pureeing sauces (e.g. tartar sauce or salsa) and chopping up vegetables (e.g. carrots and cabbage up for coleslaw), grating cheese, etc.

You may notice that there is no jug for making smoothies. That could be a deal breaker for some users! That, or the short warranty and lower power!

The KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor 5KFP0719B definitely wins for the most attractive food processor though!

KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor 5KFP0719B

Pros:

  • Many accessories (7-cup work bowl, dough blade, reversible medium slicing/shredding disc,  multi-purpose blade, and thick slicing disc)
  • Easy to wash (food is not easily trapped)
  • Compact space-saving design that stores neatly
  • Simple interface
  • Incredibly stylish

Cons:

  • Pricey
  • Not powerful enough for nuts
  • Not as versatile as other cheaper food processors

4. Bosch MultiTalent 3 Food Processor MCM3501MGB

For a similar price, you can get the Bosch MultiTalent 3 Food Processor MCM3501MGB!

The brushed stainless steel interior gives the sturdy food chopper a premium look and feel! You can set it up fast and have your ingredients ready in no time!

What we like is that you can turn it into a smaller chopper to grind nuts or even coffee beans! It’s possible to cut cooked meat on the second speed setting. Kneading dough only requires speed one.

Note that the food processor can sound rather high-pitched at the second speed.

It takes some acquainting with the accessories before you can use them though. There are some provided recipes along with the not-so-straightforward instructions.

The food processor can make frothy smoothies too, unlike the KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor 5KFP0719B! However, some users said the blade mount can break/ wear out within months or from heavy-duty use!

Still, considering that it has so many functions and accessories, with adequate capacity for small families:

The Bosch MultiTalent 3 Food Processor MCM3501MGB is a worthy investment for avid home cooks.

This food processor is for people who don’t cook fancy stuff but cook often!

Users like the generous feeding tube! The food processor is remarkably quiet too.

There’s a box to keep all the accessories neat and tidy too.

And the quality is ahead of other household brands like Philips and Kenwood. You may want to leave it on the counter permanently though as the whole processor is heavy.

What kind of tasks do you want your food processor to take care of?

  • Dicing and shredding vegetables
  • Kneading bread dough
  • Pureeing sauces and soup
  • Emulsifying (e.g. mayo)
  • Grinding cheese

Accessories determine the functionality of a food processor.

There may be a main bowl and a smaller bowl, maybe even a blender jar too!

PS: If you do a lot of juicing, you may just want to get a dedicated appliance, like the best slow juicer in Singapore!

2. Capacity

How much food do you want to process? Do you make weekly food preps/ meal preps?

The capacity of food processors is measured in cups. Or liters!

~2L (or 8 cups) should be more than enough for most families!

If you do plan on making your own bread:

You need something larger! 3L or 12 cups.

Some food processors use glass or stainless steel. While others using plastic for the main bowl.

Most importantly, the base of the food processor has to be solid and stable!
