​Why Trust us?

To find the best food processor we spend a day examining data on Amazon and Flipkart to understand what features were necessary in a Food Processor. Next, we looked at the best picks by many Indian websites, this along with our prior research on Mixer Grinders helped pick the best food processor. 

​How we selected?

After reviewing mixer grinders we found that mixers with higher power rating could process much faster than the other, so we fixed 600W as the minimum acceptable power rating for our food processors.

Our next criteria were functionality, based on customer requirements we found that a food processor should be able to cut stuff, make juice and function as a standalone mixer grinder as well, which includes 3 jars. Along with these capabilities, people also wanted the ability to knead dough. We know that's a lot of ask for, but that is what a food processor should be able to do if it needs to find a place in your home.

There were a lot of other features we considered like unbreakable jars, overload protection, speed control, safety locking lids but most products in the market already had them all so we didn’t have to explicitly look out for them. Using these criteria we managed to shortlist three food processors that fit the bill.

​Best Food Processor

Inalsa's Food Processor with Accessories

Pros

  • Most powerful in its class

  • Comes with 3 large sized jars

  • 2 years product warranty and 5-year motor warranty

  • Non-slip feet and overload protection available

Cons

  • Price is a little high

The Inalsa Wonder Maxie Plus V2, is a wonderful food processor that can do pretty much any task you throw at it.  With a 700W motor and three separate jars, it is an amazing mixer that can grind, blend and make chutney. The jars are pretty spacious too with a 1.5 Litre juicing/blending jar, a 1-litre grinding jar, and a 0.4-litre chutney jar.

The juicer is centrifugal, which spins the pulp at a high speed to get the juice instead of kneading the pulp as in a masticating juicer. The juicing bowl is of 1 litre and can be used for other functionalities with the different attachments. The Inalsa supports attachments for chopping/cutting vegetable, slicer to get french fries, coconut shredding, egg whisking, atta kneader and even a citrus juicer. To use them is easy. All you have to do is remove the juicing bowl cover and feeding tube, add the desired attachment and them feed the vegetable/fruits from the spacious feeding tube.

An important safety feature is that unless the jars are sealed properly the motor doesn't turn on. This is a very useful feature and will help you in case of accidental power on which can lead to spills. Talking about jars, all jars except the small chutney jar, have handles on them for easy handling.

Being a powerful 700 Watt motor you can expect quick chopping but there is another useful safety feature that turns off the motor if it overheats. This is done to protect the motor from any damage. Also, do note that you can use the mixer continuously for up to 30 minutes only, after which you have to let it cool for a while.

To control the mixing and grinding you have a 3-speed control with a pulse option which is fairly standard on a mixer/food processor. To further help you use the machine safely there are rubber feet as well which prevents the food processor from moving due to vibration.

The product comes with 2 years of warranty with a 5-year warranty on the motor. Customer reviews about the service were very good with many users even reporting about doorstep service for repairs which is a good thing. Many users even said that demo for the product was arranged for them within a short time of the product being delivered. Moreover, most reviews about the product were great with most users finding the performance to be very good and the attachments easy to use.

​Best Budget Food Processor

Bajaj's Food Processor with everything that comes in the box

Pros

  • Comes with 3 large sized jars

  • 2 years product warranty and 5-year motor warranty

  • Doorstep service

  • Non-slip feet and unbreakable jars

  • Overload protection available

Cons

  • Not as powerful as our best pick

The Bajaj FX11 Food Factory has an apt name for what it can do, it is - like the Inalsa - a food factory. You have the same functionality as the Inalsa Food Processor but it's a little down on power, 600W on the Bajaj versus the Inalsa’s 700W motor.

Apart from that, both the food processors are pretty much similar, they have the same number of jars and attachments, the same speed settings (3 speed), same safety features of interlocking jars and overload protection. But if you do look closely there is a minor difference that is the chutney jar on the Bajaj is 0.3 litre only while the Inalsa has a 0.4-litre jar.

The Bajaj Food Processor has a 2-year warranty on the food processor, there is also a 5-year warranty on the Motor like our best pick, the Inalsa Food Processor. You also get doorstep service which is very convenient. 

​After-Sales service

Almost all food processors have a similar 2-year warranty on the product and a 5-year warranty on the motor. But Bajaj offers on-site service and they even promise to fix the issue within 3 business days. For Inalsa you have to take the product to their service center which is there in major cities of India. Although some users did report that door-step service was offered to them. 

​Who is our best pick for?

With their ability to chop, mix, grind and juice the Food Processors are a wonderful addition to your kitchen and it can help replace many appliances and even help improve your cooking.

​The one that didn't get selected

Usha FP 2663 600 W Food Processor: The Usha Mixer didn't get picked because it was more expensive despite being similar in power to the Bajaj Food Processor. It also had a lot more complaints with regards to the after-sales service.

​Final Thoughts

If you are in the market for a great food processor which gives you a lot of attachments and jars along with a lot of power then the Inalsa Wonder Maxie Plus V2 is what you should get. 

If you want a food processor that is more affordable and gives your great service than the Bajaj FX11 will do wonders for you.
