One of the most helpful kitchen equipment you can have in your kitchen is none other than the humble food processor.
Food processor has been around for a long time, do you really need it?
You don’t really need it actually.
You can do all the food cutting and chopping using a knife and a broad.
The real benefit of a food processor is to save you time.
You can literally cut and mince anything in just a couple of seconds.
Food processor can be divided into 2 categories:
- Manual hand operated
- Electric power
In this article, I am going to write on choosing the best electric food processor in Malaysia.
Best food processor
What is the criteria in choosing the best food processor in Malaysia?
I used the online e-commerce site Lazada Malaysia as my research platform.
I will list out the food processor with the most number of user reviews.
User reviews usually means 2 things.
- That particular food processor brand and model is selling well.
- Buyers are generally happy with their purchase and would spend their time to share a review / feedback for other potential buyers.
After researching Lazada Malaysia, the following are 4 top food processors based on the criteria of user reviews.
1) Kenwood Mini FP120 Food Processor
My first recommendation is the Kenwood Mini FP120 Food Processor.
As I am writing this article on Oct 2019, the FP120 has over 20 user feedback and ratings.
This unit was given mainly 4 – 5 stars rating for user satisfaction.
Feature wise, the Kenwood FP120 is compact food processor with 1.4 litre bowl.
It comes with a standard 1 year local general warranty.
One user commented, though the product is cheap, the quality is surprising very good.
With a 400 watt motor, chopping meat and vegetables is very easy.
Most important of all, it is easy to clean.
Removable parts are only the bowl and its respective cover.
Just remove the parts, wash them with kitchen soap and rinse with water.
The Kenwood FP120 food processor is selling below RM200.
2) Philips Mini Food Processor HR7605
My second recommendation is the Philips Mini Food Processor HR7605.
The HR7605 has more then 110 user feedback and ratings on Lazada.
This model was given mainly 5 star ratings for user satisfaction.
Feature wise, it has a 2.10 litre bowl with a 350 watt electric motor.
Multiple blades and accessories are available.
You can use the Kenwood food processor to slice and shred vegetables or meat.
Best of all, this particular unit comes with a 2 years warranty by Phillips Malaysia.
The Philips HR7605 is selling for below RM200.
3) Panasonic MKF800
My third recommendation is the Panasonic MKF800 Food Processor.
The MKF800 has over 29 user feedback and comments.
It was given mainly 4 – 5 stars rating for user satisfaction.
This food processor is a higher end unit compared to the other brands.
Amazingly, it has 33 functions!
It can mince, mash, chop, paste, drain, blend etc.
For those that love to bake, the MKF800 also has a knead knife blade.
What I love most about this food processor is the Glass Touch control panel.
Just touch the function that you want and use the front control knob to adjust to speed of the blade.
This unit comes with a 1 year local supplier warranty.
The selling price for Panasonic MKF800 is below RM750.
4) KitchenAid KFC3511
My fourth recommendation is the KitchenAid KFC3511 Food Processor / Chopper.
A list of the top food processor brand in Malaysia would not be complete if I did not include KitchenAid.
KitchenAid products are premium quality.
I’ve been to a couple of baking studios and they always have a mixer from KitchenAid on the counter.
Maybe it is the design or maybe it is the built quality.
Nonetheless, professional bakers tend to like the kitchen equipment from KitchenAid.
Although KitchenAid produces premium kitchen equipment, it does have the entry level food processor.
Introducing the KitchenAid KFC3511.
The KFC3511 series come is 3 different colours which are red, white and orange.
The most popular colour is none other than the red.
As I am writing this article, the KitchenAid KFC3511 Red food processor has over 8 user feedback and comments.
This food processor has a 2 speed one-touch function:
It uses a 3.5-Cup BPA-free bowl and lid.
It also comes with 1 year local manufacturer warranty.
The good news is, the price is quite affordable for a KitchenAid product.
At Lazada, it is selling below RM350 / unit.
A food processor is just a tool.
It is a useful kitchen tool to help you save time preparing food or raw material for cooking or baking.
The list above is obviously not comprehensive.
There are many other brand of food processor available either in shopping malls or online e-commerce sites.
Choose one that meets your budget and requirement.
Remember, “Good things are not cheap and cheap things are not good”.
If you do not know which food processor to buy, use the list above as a guide.
At least now you know which are the top selling models and which food processor others are recommending.
