customer ratings
4.4/5

Number two on our list is not a typical food processor. In fact, it is “only” a hand blender, but we made an exception for it, because in many respects it can compete with classic robots, while being an extremely light and handy device. Although it is a lower model, it provides up to 12 speed settings and, additionally, the Turbo function.

The lightweight handle has an ergonomic shape for a comfortable, soft grip; thanks to the universal shredder with a removable stainless steel blade, we can effectively crush, among others meat, cheese or vegetables; The mixing tip with the QuattroBlade knife with 4 blades guarantees fast and efficient work, and the whipping tip is useful when preparing desserts.

Thanks to the 750 W power, the blender handles most of the tasks we will set before it – from blending herbs to crushing ice.

customer ratings
5/5

One of the cheaper planetary robots, whose advantage is, among others, a solid housing made of high quality plastic and stainless steel; planetary mixing system, useful when preparing cakes; tilting head makes it easy to remove the bowl and add ingredients or high power (1200 W) and 8 possibilities of setting the rotation speed.

  • Accessories included: Included equipment: dough hook, whipping attachment, anti-splash cover, 4 cutting discs, bowl (3.9L, max. 2.0 kg)
customer ratings
3.6/5

At first glance, this model does not impress with its parameters – above all, the multifunctional MUM 4 kitchen robots are equipped with 500 W motors, which does not seem a particularly efficient achievement. In practice, however, Bosch collects better opinions than similar products from a similar shelf, which can show off more power.

We use 4-stage speed control for control. MUM 4427 works in a wide spectrum of applications, from sweet cakes and eclairs to healthy smoothies and ice cream to tasty dishes of minced meat.

Dynamic planetary gearbox ensures mixing quality; the convenience of our work is provided by many tips (e.g. for kneading or whipping), the 5-function vegetable and fruit crusher allows for quick grinding on both thick slices and fine chips; stainless steel bowl helps to maintain occupational hygiene.

A higher model than the already mentioned 54251, which can boast more power (instead of 900 it has 1000 W) and the possibility of expansion with accessories available in the thematic packages (VeggieLove, TastyMoments, PastaPassion, ice cream attachment).

It will be appreciated by people who often prepare cakes – in the set we get 3 mixers, enabling the production of any type of mass (unique “K” stirrer; professional stainless steel whisk and special hook for pasta cakes or bread). 1200 W power, which can be smoothly regulated electronically, will cope with any kitchen challenge.

This is already a premium class product, which is indicated not only by the solid and impressive OptiMUM housing, but also by the parameters: 1400 W motor; planetary 3D stirring motion; intelligent dough sensor (tests resistance to mixers during kneading and maintains a constant mixing speed).

Plus, the rich set that we receive when buying this model speaks for itself:

Food Processors FAQ

I make sliced potatoes with mine and it doesn’t do very well at all. Very inconsistent and little tiny pieces throughout the sliced potatoes. My daughter bought me mine for mothers day, 2017. I also wish it had a slicer that was a little thicker. It does make coleslaw very well.

It doesn’t come with a dough hook only a chopper blade and a slice/grate blade wheel. The instruction book did state that it would do cookie dough but does not mention bread dough.

 

It can shred anything. Hell, it even shredded my hand when i tried to reach in and get something out.

 

Hey Sara. So far I’ve used the slicer attachment (it’s included) to cut thin potatoes (my scalloped potatoes came out great). I also used the grater (same attachment as the slicer, just the other side) and shredded carrots as well as cheese. I have chopped nuts with no problem either. For the price, you’re getting a great deal. I’ve used more expensive food processors and this one is doing the job. I have more expensive kitchen appliances and this one has been my “go to.” I hope that helps. 

The answer is “Yes, and No” . . .
For Pasta Dough, it’s great for pulse-mixing your dry ingredients, eggs and oil – – after which you can easily finish kneading by hand. See the following video for this simple technique (it’s a game changer).

I have not personally used this to grind cooked ham, however, I have used it to chop up uncooked sweet potatoes, which are much harder than cooked ham. I would say it can handle it.

 

In small amounts it does fine. I didn’t want to risk trying anything more.

 

I haven’t triedit. Maybe so if done in very small batches and use the bowl scraper the whole time.

 

Safety and care


The possibility of blocking during improper installation of nozzles protects the user from injuries, and the combine harvester from damage. If something is wrong, then the device simply will not turn on. We have already talked about automatic overload protection. True, this feature is not available in budget models. It is equipped with powerful devices of the middle and high price range.

Make sure that the combine has rubber feet. This will ensure its stability during operation. It’s easy to take care of the food processor. All working parts must be washed before and after use. Some models are dishwasher safe. If you approach the purchase of a food processor responsibly, examine all the advantages, disadvantages and opportunities, then such a kitchen assistant will last a long time and certainly will not gather dust in the closet. By the way, the device can be a great New Year gift. Many stores on the eve of the holidays make good discounts.

Conclusion

As you can see, in each price group you can easily find interesting designs – it is worth remembering that a functional robot should not cost several hundred dollars at all, although in the case when we need a real combine, we must take into account the high price. The choice of small, low-cost products will allow you to satisfy basic needs (usually these are models with two functions, with virtually no additions or extensibility). More expensive equipment means more options and a huge range of accessories.
