4 Types of Food Processors for Your Kitchen

Are you thinking of buying a Food Processor for yourself? If so, then you should learn more about the different types of food processors available.

There are basically 4 types of Food processors available in the market: Batch Bowl, Continuous Feed, Combination, and Buffalo choppers. Each of these food processors is different in its structure and its functioning and have different pros and cons associated with them.

Batch Bowl

In this type of food processor, batches of food are passed into the processor which gets collected in the bowl. A user drops the food items inside the bowl to slice the food item and a central pillar in the processor holds an ‘S’ shaped disk which cuts all the food items that come into contact with its surface.

This blade or disc cut the food into your desired shape and size and the bowl can be detached so that the sliced and diced food items can be emptied from this bowl.

Usually, a bowl can hold 1-6 quarts of cut food items and a few commercial food processors can hold even larger quantity. One can even use multiple bowls in a rotation to save time and prepare large batches of food at a time.

Continuous Feed

In this type of food processor, a user can continuously feed the food to the food processor which simultaneously processes the food items and dispenses them out into another container. This saves time and allows one to process large batches without any interruption, quickly and efficiently.

So, basically you don’t have to wait or empty the bowl in this type of food processor, you can keep on feeding it the food items until you are done.

Combination

This type of food processors employ both the features of a Batch Bowl processor and a Continuous Feed processor.

This food processor allows the user to continuously feed the food into the food processor and processes the food simultaneously while using the bowl or attaching an additional unit for dispensing the food outside the processor. This again saves time and makes the entire process more efficient and powerful.

Buffalo Choppers

One of the best types of food processors for someone who is looking for a sturdy and heavy food processor, a buffalo chopper can handle all kinds of food. You can use this food processor to chop meat, raw carrots, etc. They have an all-metal structure which makes it more powerful than other types of food processors and makes them an all-purpose tool.

You can also attach add-ons like slicers, graters, etc. to their accessory hubs and make them more versatile and useful. Trust me, buffalo chopper is the type of food processor that one should opt for when they would be chopping a lot of different types of food items and would need to perform large batches of processing on food items.

So, now that you know about the different types of food processors, why not go out and check some model for yourself?
