Trying Out A New VonShef Food Processor

11th September 2017

Over the last few weeks we’ve been trying out a new food processor – the 1000 watts perfomance range from VonShef in Matte Black, available to buy from


First off, lets look at the design, because obviously, if it isn’t aesthetically pleasing then you’re probably not going to buy it. Black might not be to everyones tastes, but It was very appealing to me and fits in well with our kitchen, looking sleek and modern.  I find white/cream appliances of which there are a lot out there,  show up dirt and water marks more readily, even when kept clean. The design is quite compact, so doesn’t take up much space on your counter top, although is quite tall when the blender jug is in use.


The facts:

  • This model has a 3.5-litre capacity bowl and generous 1.8-litre blender jar so it’s easy to process large amounts of food at once – great for batch cooking and freezing.
  • The processor also features a twin-speed operation with pulse option too
  • There’s a lid-locking system to avoid accidental spills
  • Dishwasher safe detachable parts make cleaning simple.

The processor also comes with various attachments including, Medium and Fine Slicing Blade, Medium and Fine Grating Blades, Shredding Blade, Kneading Blade and a Plastic spatula which is a lot more than some on the market.

The processor also features an integrated storage drawer at the bottom of the machine meaning you can safely store your all the blades and attachments when not in use. This is possibly the greatest feature for me – no more rummaging around at the back of the kitchen drawers and cupboards trying to find that grating blade because there is nowhere to store them and then accidentally cutting your finger when you do find it!

The actually main processor blades are also stored in this drawer down the side too – everything  in one place – perfect.

In the process of testing it out we’ve made soups, smoothies and pestos as well as slicing and grating copious amounts of veg for meals, and it has done all of the above with ease. The only thing I think we’ve yet to try out is the dough blade – I love making bread and cakes but it’s something that I’ve not done much of recently due to the mini foodie but I’m sure I will get into again soon.

Overall I would have to give a huge thumbs up to this food processor, it stands shoulders above our last machine in both design, performance and ease of use and I look forward to using it more and more!
