Half Baked Harvest

When it comes to comparison shopping, Amazon is the holy grail. The retail giant's community of honest reviewers has helped us decide which home appliances are cart-worthy on multiple occasions (see our lists of the best air purifiers, best blenders, and best electric pressure cookers for reference). So we instinctively turned to the reviews section when we went in search of the best food processors on the market right now.

From a budget-friendly workhorse that makes mincing garlic by hand a thing of the past to a splurge-worthy multiuse appliance that goes from a food processor to a blender with the change of an attachment, these small yet powerful machines will no doubt change how you cook. Get ready to say goodbye to chopping onions (finally). Ahead are seven kitchen appliances worth clearing some counter space for, according to enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

SharkNinja Ninja Master Prep Professional Chopper, Blender, Food Processor $50

4.4 stars, 9564 reviews

"The ninja works fast and efficiently, making quick work out of onions, peppers, celery, garlic, or just about any other veggie or fruit you might need quickly chopped. It works so fast, the name 'Ninja' really does suit it! … How is it even possible that it's quiet and works faster than any other processor or blender I've had before? I have no idea, I'm not an engineer. But I do appreciate it." — Liz

Hamilton Beach 10-Cup Food Processor, ChefPrep With 525-Watts $46 $43

4.4 stars, 1180 reviews

"For the money, I really don't think you can get a better food processor. I purchased this for my girlfriend over a year ago, [and] we've used it to make salsas and hummus, chop onions and shred cheeses, and numerous other things. I really didn't know how much a food processor would get used until we owned one, and I must say, it's quite a bit." — Mark Downing Heese

Hamilton Beach 8-Cup Food Processor $37 $24

4.3, 3969 reviews

"I can't believe this thing only cost $28. I've never owned a food processor in my life—I've always had this weird thing about having to chop everything by hand. And I cook a LOT. But I was finally thwarted by falafel—I had a grinder attachment for my KitchenAid that was just not cutting it, and my blender wasn't cutting it for the hummus I also love to make on the regular." — Alyssa K

Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus Food Processor $75 $28

4.2 stars, 3687 reviews

"I really like this mini food processor. I have a larger Cuisinart food processor as well, but since I am single, I thought this smaller one would be a good choice for me. It is small enough that it minces garlic or ginger well and is a lot easier to use for that than my garlic press or mini-grater for this purpose." — Steven D. Hult

Hamilton Beach 10-Cup Food Processor, With Bowl Scraper $36

4.2 stars, 2867 reviews

"This product had me at 'you don't have to dismantle the bowl to scrape down the sides.' I have used it for months and made it work hard. No issues. It held up amazingly. I did massive amounts of research trying to find the right one for me. This, hands down, is the best." — Miss Phoenix

Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Stack and Snap Food Processor $86 $48

4.2 stars, 1046 reviews

"We have made salsa, quickly chopped vegetables for stir-fry, grated cabbage for coleslaw, grated and sliced block cheese using the wide-mouth opening, mixed pasta dough, and made the best hash browns by grating potatoes dropped through the large mouth opening at the top. The unit had plenty of power for all tasks … we very much like this processor and would not hesitate to purchase again." — Patricia H.

Oster Pro Blender 3-in-1 With Food Processor Attachment $90

4 stars, 1562 reviews

"This is a great blender. … It has powered through tough greens like kale and Swiss chard (with stems), as well as frozen fruit, nuts, and seeds. It also makes awesome salsa and nut butters. I also own a Vitamix but wanted to get away from the plastic container. Although these [two] blenders are not in the same power/motor category, the Oster Pro is quite impressive in what it can do." — shrinking footprint
