What is the difference between a food processor and blender?

While food processors and blenders have many similarities, these kitchen appliances serve different purposes. 


A food processor is great for chopping, slicing, shredding, mixing and pureeing everything from cucumbers to tomatoes and cheeses. It can be used for more labour intensive tasks such as mixing dough and includes a variety of blades and discs to provide a wide variety of ingredient shapes and sizes. Cut down your prep time with our range of food processors that make a breeze of slicing, dicing and shredding! Food processing prep work is now easier than ever with our 7 cup or 9 cup food processor which features a simple twist-free design and a sealed work bowl for faster, easier clean up. The blade, discs, and other accessories fit inside the bowl to make storage easy. For everyday use, our 3.5 cup Mini Food Chopper or 5 Cup Food Chopper is ideal for quick and small processing tasks such as dressings, sauces and single serve meals. The easy one touch operation enables you to chop and puree quickly.

 


A blender is typically better for liquids and is used to create smooth textures for things like smoothies, soups and sauces and dips. Our new K400 blender features a 3-part blending system that easily blends even the toughest ingredients, from kale to almonds and more, with a powerful vortex created by the ribbed jar design, unique asymmetric blade that blends at four distinct angles, and intelli-speed motor control, which senses contents and maintains the optimal speed to power through all ingredients. 


Which is better. Food processor or blender? 

Depending on the purpose, blenders are typically built with features that make them better for making smoothies and soups. In contrast, food processors have a bigger work bowl which makes it easier to add in ingredients and includes a variety of attachments to slice carrots, shred cheese, or mix dough. It’s more suitable at handling thicker things like dough and butter which makes it perfect for mixing cookie and pizza dough.
