Food processors are an important addition to every kitchen. They allow chefs of all expertise to make soups, sauces, and dips and chop and slice vegetables easily. Every major kitchen appliance brand has a few food processors, and it can be hard to find the right one for your kitchen. Below are the best food processors from six major brands: Oster, Cuisinart, Ninja, KitchenAid, and Nutribullet.

It’s a powerful but slightly loud appliance with a large feed chute that fits most foods. It’s a high-quality blender for an affordable price.
Food Processor Warranty
A new food processor can make cooking a dream. Once you start using it, you won’t want to stop. And though food processors may seem pretty sturdy, anything with a motor can break. Like major appliances, it’s important to keep small appliances protected
, and the best way to do that is by purchasing an Upsie food processor warranty
Upsie can save you up to 70% on a small appliance warranty when compared to warranties from retailers and manufacturers. In addition, Upsie offers affordable two and three-year plans that are as comprehensive as the ones offered by major retailers. For example, a warranty for a $249.99 KitchenAid food processor would cost $28.99 for a 2-year warranty and $47.99 for a 3-year plan, with no deductible.
You can make a claim at any time, on any day, and Upsie will help get your appliance fixed. If a certified repair technician can’t replace it on the first claim, Upsie will replace it. Customers can purchase a small appliance warranty for products bought within the last 60 days of purchase.
