View Full Version : Wattage for food processor
03-12-2009, 04:58 AM
I am considering buying my first food processor but I see so many on the market I have no idea what I should look for in terms of wattage. Can anyone recommend food processors and what wattage I would need to make raw food recipes?:confused:

I would say a minimum of 600 watts, mine is 720 I think, I have the Cuisinart MP-14 which has a 20 year warranty. I'd also recommend a known brand like cuisinart because they sell all parts individually, although other brands may seem cheap at first, they aren't once you realize the whole thing is garbage when a plastic peice breaks since the company doesn't sell parts. The lid on my cuisinart just cracked from dropping it a few times and I know for $20 or so I can get a new one and don't need to buy a whole new machine.

I have the Cuisinart MP-14, but will be returning it (the chrome is nearly impossible to keep spotless on the counter) and I am not happy with the cleaning of the buttons on this model (not the imbedded ones you just wipe clean) Functionally I love it though!
I have been comparing the Cuisinart PrepPlus 11 cup and the KitchenAid KFP750 - and am leaning towards the KA, since it is a 12 cup with 700 watts, despite Cuisinart carrying a better warranty.
I'd appreciate others chiming in with their Kitchen Aid success/horror stories please.
