VonShef 750W food processor
Pros: versatile, great value for money
Cons: not the most powerful, needs lots of storage space
Star rating: 4.5/5
Von Shef (£49.99)
Offering a wide range of functions at a fraction of the price some other processors retail for, the VonShef 750W Food Processor is one of the best-value machines tested in our food processor review.
One reason to love this machine is its versatility. Besides the standard selection of chopping, grating, slicing and blending, you get a juicer attachment – great for squeezing juice directly into your smoothie mix – and an emulsifying disc that’s can be used to make emulsifications (you guessed it!) like mayonnaise and whipped cream.
This processor does the basics well, too. We tried making milkshakes using its jug attachment, and were pleased with the even consistency of the drinks produced. We’ve undoubtedly seen other processors or blenders do the same thing quicker, but the slightly slower pace shouldn’t be much of a problem for most users.
There are other ways in which the VonShef understandably falls short of its more expensive rivals. The attachments – particularly the blades, jug and mixing bowl – feel a little flimsier than the ones you get with options like the Cuisinart Easy Prep Pro and the Ninja Smart Screen food processor.
Again, we don’t see this being a problem for most users, but if you plan on using your food processor heavily, or if you think you’re likely to put it through a lot of wear and tear, you might be better off investing in a tougher option.
Like many of the other food processors we've tested, this appliance is easy to use – but only once you've got the hang of it, as setting up accessories within the mixing bowl is not especially intuitive.
It performs relatively well from a safety perspective, since its accessories seem relatively simple and easy to handle, compared with the quirky components you get with more advanced food processors like the Sage Kitchen Wizz Peel & Dice.
Altogether, we found the VonShef 750W food processor to be a pleasant guest in the kitchen. It chopped and blended just as consistently as some of its costlier rivals, albeit a little more slowly.
The level of noise it makes is just about average, and although its accessories require a fair amount of storage space, the appliance itself has a neat footprint that mean it could live on a shelf. Its smart, unpretentious design deserves a space out in the open.
