Yes, the same people who make the world’s most famous sandwich makers also make food processors and this one is an absolute legend in its own lifetime.

It’s also a great looking machine and will be a handsome addition to any kitchen – big or small.

You can read our review of this smaller alternative and make that decision.)

The Benefits Of Owning A Food Processor
It all comes down to time saved with food processors. Sure, you can knead dough, chop and slice by hand, etc. but that all takes up a large amount of time and that is often time we don’t have when we have work, children, partners, friends, etc. to tend to.
So, in comes the food processor to do the heavy lifting. We’d put it in the Top 3 essential appliances in any modern kitchen.
The Benefits Of The Breville Sous Chef Food Processor
When preparing food, consistent size is important for even cooking and world-class presentation. For slicing, chopping, dicing, shredding or kneading the Brevill Sous Chef delivers consistently perfect results.
This is is a professional grade Breville food processor and that means a large number of discs and blades in the box so that you can be super-precise about the way you approach each job in the kitchen.
It has a wider feed chute (5.5 inches) than almost any other food processor and that means it’s not necessary to “pre-chop” your fruit and veggies. This is a big time saver and something we most liked about the Breville Sous Chef.
There are also 2 BPA-free bowls in the box, which is a nice, but not essential, addition to the value of the package. It also includes a spatula which just keeps everything looking and feeling coherent when using the Breville Sous Chef Food Processor.
The multi-directional timer allows you to count up as well as count down during processing, this isn’t a big deal but it can help some people follow a recipe more easily.
Most importantly, the motor is a 1,200 Watt high torque motor which can make easy work of even the toughest jobs. We also like that it handles a full 16-cups at a time.
One thing everyone will love about this is the neat storage box for all the attachments and utensils. We wish all manufacturers paid attention to details like this. It makes keeping things neat incredibly easy.
