Food processor

is an essential piece of equipment for any serious cook. Today, the term almost always refers to an electric-motor-driven appliance, although there are some manual devices also referred to as "food processors".

Food processors are similar to blender in many ways. The primary difference is that food processors use swappable blades and disks (attachments) instead of a fixed blade. Also, their bowls are wider and shorter, a more appropriate shape for the solid or semi-solid foods usually worked in a food processor. Usually little or no liquid is required in the operation of the food processor unlike a blender, which requires some amount of liquid to move the particles around its blade. It's indispensable for large chopping jobs and a must for any type of pureeing.

Its functions normally consist of:

  • Slicing,Chopping, vegetables
  • Grinding items such as nuts, meat, dried fruit
  • Shredding or grating cheese or vegetables
  • Pureeing
  • Mixing and kneading doughs
