Hamilton Beach Food Processor & Vegetable Chopper for Slicing, Shredding, Mincing, and Puree, 8 Cup, Black

Hamilton Beach Food Processor Vegetable & Chopper for Slicing

by Hamilton Beach

DISHWASHER SAFE PARTS: Dishwasher safe blades, bowl and lid make cleanup easy. Parts are BPA-free in food zones.

The Hamilton Beach Food Processor has a wide, heavy base that's perfect for counter or table use, and the large 8-cup bowl is large enough to shred an entire block of cheese, but small enough to store well. It has 2 speed settings for chopping and slicing, plus a pulse setting, and the motor is powerful enough to handle most jobs. The reversible shredding disc slices and shreds, and the s-blade chops, mixes and purees, so it has the versatility of both a food chopper and a food processor. The 450-watt motor provides plenty of power for chopping, slicing, and mixing, and the bowl is easy to clean. The food processor is also quiet, so it's ideal for use in the kitchen. You can use this food processor to make hummus, pesto, salsa, and guacamole, as well as soups, dips, and sauces.

Hamilton Beach Food Processor & Vegetable Chopper for Slicing, Shredding, Mincing, and Puree, 10 Cups - Bowl Scraper, Stainless Steel

Hamilton Beach Food Processor & Vegetable Chopper Slicing, for Shredding, Mincing, and Puree, 10 Cups

by Hamilton Beach

Large feed chute: Can fit large foods like a whole block of cheese for quick, easy processing and less prep time

The Hamilton Beach Food Processor and Vegetable Chopper has most of the features we've come to rely on in food processors, including a 10-cup bowl, 2 speeds, 450 watts of power, a reversible s-blade, a shredding disc, a chopping blade, and a whisk. It chops and shreds food quickly and efficiently, and it's powerful enough to puree hard vegetables like carrots, celery, and potatoes. If you're chopping onions, the s-blade is powerful enough to separate them. The s-blade also rotates counterclockwise, so if you're chopping something such as garlic, the s-blade (which is stainless steel) won't make a mess. The chopping blade, too, rotates counterclockwise, which is a good thing for chopping onions, garlic, and the like, but a bad thing for chopping against the grain of leafy vegetables like cabbage and lettuce. The chopping blade is sharp, so be careful not to cut yourself. The chopping blade, s-blade, and shredding disc are dishwasher safe, and the chopping blade and the shredding disc are also hand washable. The bowl, however, should be hand washed only. The food processor is compact, so it's versatile enough to use in a 5-cup or 8-cup mini chopper, too. It comes with a chopping bowl, a whisk, and a cleaning brush, and there's a storage case for storing the accessories. The s-blade is sharp, so be cautious when using it. The food processor is noisy, but that's to be expected. It chops and shreds quickly, so it's a good food processor for busy households.

Hamilton Beach 4-Cup Mini Food Processor & Vegetable Chopper, 250 Watts, for Slicing, Shredding, and Puree, Black (70510)

Hamilton Beach 4-Cup Mini Processor Food & Vegetable Chopper

by Hamilton Beach

Stainless steel quad blade provides superior chopping results and thorough blending

The Hamilton Beach 4-cup Mini Food Processor & Vegetable Chopper does everything that our previous top pick, the Oster 2-cup Mini Food Processor, does, but for less money. The Hamilton Beach processor is smaller, lighter, and more compact than the Oster, and the fact that it doesn't have a chopping blade means that it's less dangerous if you don't handle it carefully. It also has a smaller chute, so you can't fit a whole block of cheese into it. Overall, the Hamilton Beach processor is cheaper than the Oster, and it's slightly easier to use. The Hamilton Beach processor has a power button and a switch for on/off, while the Oster has a power button and a switch for pulse. The Hamilton Beach processor has a pulse button, too, but it's located on the side of the machine, where you tend to simply press it accidentally. The Hamilton Beach processor also has 6 more watts than the Oster processor, so it's slightly faster. The Hamilton Beach processor is also slightly quieter than the Oster. Both processors offer a good range of speeds, and the Hamilton Beach processor has 2 more speed levels than the Oster processor. The Hamilton Beach processor also has a 4-cup capacity, while the Oster processor has a 2-cup capacity. We liked that the Hamilton Beach processor has a 4-cup capacity, but we didn't like the Oster processor's larger chute. The Hamilton Beach processor also has a 4-cup capacity, but it's slightly smaller than the 4-cup capacity on the Oster. The Hamilton Beach processor's bowl has a curved edge, so it fits more snugly in the bowl. The Oster processor's bowl has a flat edge, so it fits more loosely in the bowl. The Hamilton Beach processor's bowl is also slightly wider, so it's easier fit in the dishwasher. The Hamilton Beach processor's bowl has 4 more blades, so it's slightly easier to use. The Hamilton Beach processor's bowl is also slightly deeper, so it's slightly easier to use. The Hamilton Beach processor's blades are made of stainless steel, while the Oster processor's blades are made of plastic. The Hamilton Beach processor's blades are slightly sharper than the Oster processor's blades. Overall, the Hamilton Beach processor is a decent food processor, but it's slightly more expensive than the Oster processor. The Hamilton Beach processor also costs more, but it comes with a 3-year warranty.

The Elechomes High Capacity 8-Cup Blender Grinder for Meat, Onion, Powerful 300W Motor & 4 Detachable Dual Layer Stainless Steel Blades, BPA-Free Glass Bowl is a great deal, especially considering how much power it has for the price.

The 300-watt motor is powerful enough to grind meat quickly, and the built-in blade cover does a good job of keeping it from flying apart during use.

The included recipes are simple to use, and the machine's large LCD display makes it easy to program recipes depending on how many cups you're processing and your speed setting. The digital display's buttons don't light up, and the machine's speed settings are controlled by a rotary dial, and there's no timer, so it's hard to skip steps or forget how long a task takes. The machine is easy to set up and use, and it's cordless, so it's portable. The only drawback is the machine's large size, which makes it difficult to store, and it's noisy, which can both be annoying.

Hamilton Beach Mini 3-Cup Food Processor & Vegetable Chopper, 350 Watts, for Dicing, Mincing, and Puree, Black (72850)

Hamilton Beach Mini 3-Cup Processor Food & Vegetable Chopper

by Hamilton Beach

Easily chop, puree and emulsify with stainless steel blades: Durable stainless steel blades make easy work of a multitude of ingredients including onions, carrots and nuts. Oil dispenser on lid makes it easy to emulsify dressings, dips and sauces.

The Hamilton Beach Mini chopper is a pretty good choice for an inexpensive food chopper. The motor is powerful enough to handle vegetables, nuts, and other tough ingredients, and the lid is easy to assemble and use. The bowl is dishwasher safe, and the blades are easy to disassemble and clean. The Mini chopper is powerful, too, but we found that it sometimes spat out large chunks of ingredients, which could be a problem if you're making baby food. It's a little difficult to assemble and disassemble, and the bowl isn't deep enough to accommodate large ingredients, so it's better suited to chopping ingredients and mixing sauces, rather than preparing whole meals. The Hamilton Beach Mini chopper is affordable, and it did everything we needed it to do, but it's best suited for small jobs, such as chopping veggies for salads or homemade salsas, or processing small amounts of nuts or meat.
