The Philips HR7320 is a big capacity food processor at 244 x 244 x 377 mm, yet its design is compact that it can fit in a small kitchen countertop.

Like all good food processors, the MK-F800 will start only when the bowl and lid are secured by the safety lock. It is for security reasons and also to keep food from jumping out when it is blended.
In short, the Panasonic MK-F800 is a powerful and versatile food processor capable of cutting food in all shapes and sizes in a professional-quality manner. It comes with a 1-year local manufacturer warranty.

Very efficient, fast delivery. The processor itself is exceeding expectations, it is much more silent compared to my previous blender. And it really does a good job at prepping veggies. The grater attachment is also excellent. Slicing function is a bit thicker than expected, so have to be prepared for that. Easy clean-up too as the blade detaches from the bowl.
Customer’s Negative Review:
The Panasonic MK-5087M stands at 340 x 203x 324mm and is a great 6-in1 food processor, especially for newbies. It sports a 1.2L capacity with 5 interchangeable stainless-steel blades for chopping, mixing, grinding, shredding, slicing and even whipping.

It is working very fast and strong! And so many types of cutting and equipment I can choose for my cooking! Fast delivery. The packaging is good and arrived in very good condition!
Pensonic PB5001’s Negative Review:
the juicer container should have been slightly bigger, it would make better smoothies.
If the Panasonic and Kenwood food processors are out of your budget, don’t fret, Pensonic PB5001 is the best food processor under RM200, only RM175 to be exact.
This is an all-in-one food processor that can be used as a blender, slicer, chopper and citrus juicer.
All this is made possible by the accessories included in the box: slicing blade, shredding blades, chopper, kneading blade, emulsifying disc, citrus juicer and blender. The bowl is made of plastic
As compared to its more expensive competitors, the Pensonic PB5001 uses a less powerful 500W motor. You may not get the best texture if you cut the food into very fine pieces.
Nonetheless, this model should work pretty well for most people.
Pensonic PB5001 has two speeds and pulse mode. There is also overheating prevention feature in this machine.
Best Compact Food Processor
Kenwood Food Processor FP120
Kenwood FP120 Features Highlight:
- 0.8L capacity

Kenwood FP120’s Positive Review:
A great little machine and excellent value for money and simple to use. There are only 2 options: quick pulse or full-on either way it’s fast so you don’t need it on for long. So far I’ve used it to rub the butter into flour, mixed sponge cake recipes and grate carrots all with ease and no more cramped hands or shredded knuckles.
Kenwood FP120’s Negative Review:
This does not live up to the expected Kenwood standard. I used it a few times, probably on the third occasion the plastic bowl literally broke into pieces from the food I was blending in it (frozen berries). I honestly regret buying it
If you’re looking for a food processor that’s simple to use and doesn’t come with a lot of bells and whistles, the Kenwood Compact FP120 Food Processor is for you.
Measuring 175 x 150 x 275mm, this appliance is powered by a 400W motor and give you a working capacity of 0.8L. This very useful kitchen appliance that slices, chops, whisks and grates through your ingredients so fast, you’ll have more time for other tasks.

Khind Mini Chopper FPC808 Features Highlight:
- 0.5L capacity
- SUS304 Stainless Steel Chopping Blades
- Processing Bowl with safety lock
- Made from BPA-free material for food safety
- Thermal fuse protection
Khind FPC808’s Positive Review:
Done received. Good product quality. Good value for money. Fast delivery. Good packaging. TQ
Khind FPC808’s Negative Review:
product tak quality langsung.brg sampai patah.ketat utk buka tutup.beli dekat lazada minggu lepas semua item elok.dekat shopee packing sangat teruk.kotak habis kemek.bukak2 brang patah.apala.
Measuring at 210 x 130 x 150 mm, Khind Mini Chopper FPC808 has 0.5L capacity and thus is great for those of you who cook for a small or small-medium family.
The price makes it even harder to resist as this is our budget pick for a smaller capacity food processor.
Due to the small size of this mini chopper, you need to be careful not to put in any hard ingredients. Nevertheless, you can use it to chop fruit, vegetables, garlic, onions, and smaller dried foods.
The official specification shows it is powered by an 80W motor which I am a bit doubtful whether it is correct. Because it has a max speed of 19800 rpm, which is faster than the FPC900’s 200W motor.
It’s a single-function chopper, so you can’t puree baby food with it.
The body is made of glass and uses BPA-free plastic which is awesome. And the blades are made of sturdy SUS304 stainless steel.
Khind Mini Chopper FPC808’s bowl comes with a safety lock and there’s a thermal fuse to protect the appliance from overheating. Khind Mini Chopper FPC808 comes with a 1-year local manufacturer warranty.

The simple-looking Khind Mini Chopper FPC900 measures 118 x 118 x 236mm and has a 0.6L capacity. It is suitable for preparing ingredients enough for 2 to 3 people.
Even though this portable Khind processor is small, its 220W output makes it quite powerful. The SUS304 stainless steel chopping blades are sharp and have no worries of rusting. All parts can be detached for easier cleaning.
The bowl is made from BPA-free material. It comes with a safety lock feature and there’s also thermal fuse protection to prevent overheating.
Khind Mini Chopper FPC900 comes with a 1-year local manufacturer warranty.
Best Cheap Mini Food Processor
Hepburn Wireless Mini Food Processor
Hepburn Wireless Mini Food Processor Features Highlight:
- 30W motor
- 100ml+250ml cup capacity
- 304 stainless steel blade
Hepburn Wireless Mini Food Processor’s Positive Review:
Berfungsi dan baik… Senang buat bubur anak, nak chop cili, bawang…. Basuh pun senang
Hepburn Wireless Mini Food Processor’s Negative Review:
cuma penutup dia tak melekat n tak kuat, sangat senang tercabut kalau tak pegang masa blend. . blade dia mcm slow je lah
This wireless mini food chopper measures 92 x 92 x 105mm and is powered by a 30W motor. It is so portable that you can even take it on a trip.
It comes with two cups of different sizes, 100ml and 250ml. The cup is made of food-grade plastic.
You can use it to chop garlic, onion, chilli, carrot, potato, and other soft ingredients.
You should not mistake this for a full-fledged food processor. This is in fact a vegetable chopper or small meat mincer. It cannot cut or blend hard ingredients, nor frozen food.
Some buyers set the wrong expectation that this battery-powered 30W mini chopper would work as good as a full-sized electric food processor.
This kind of mini food processor is meant for providing maximum convenience. Just grab this little guy, throw your ingredient inside, pop the motor on top and press to start blending. No need to mess with wire and switches.
Do note that this mini food processor is very basic. It doesn’t have any safety lock mechanism. So, make sure that you don’t put the blade on the motor if you’re not using it.
Despite its small size, trust me that this cheap mini food processor will be a great helping hand in your kitchen. You might use it more frequently than your big food processor.
No-brand food processor
A food processor is a very basic kitchen appliance. I am quite neutral on whether to buy a no-brand or branded food processor. However, you should avoid a food processor which claims to be 2.0L or 3.0L capacity but only using a weak motor.
A mismatch between motor power and bowl capacity will not give you ideal cutting results, especially you want to cut your ingredient to very fine and tiny pieces. It will turn out to be chunky and uneven.
Food Processor FAQ
What’s the difference between food processor and blender?
The biggest difference between food processors and blenders are the bowl and blade. A food processor bowl is not suitable to be filled to maximum capacity or blending liquid. The blender jug is tall and can be filled to almost full to blend liquid.
Blade for a food processor is interchangeable to slice, dice, chop and shred ingredients, whereas blender blade is fixed onto the blender jug.
Can I use a food processor to grind coffee?
Yes, you can use a dry mill to grind coffee but it is not recommended.
Can I blend with food processor?
Yes, you can but it is not as efficient as a blender.
How many watts should a good food processor be?
For average use, 300 watts motor is more than enough. For heavy-duty use, 700 watts or above is better.
