Food processors are versatile appliances for those who enjoy getting creative in the kitchen. They boast a number of helpful, everyday functions to take the hard work out of food preparation. For foodies with a sweet tooth, food processors can step in to help whisk egg whites and cream or mix cake and biscuit mixtures. For savoury food fans, they can be used to knead dough, mince meat and make homemade dips, dressings and breadcrumbs. And they can also chop vegetables, herbs, nuts and fruit. The Breville VFP033 Intelligent Food Processor easily tackles all of these kitchen jobs and more. It takes the guess-work out of the process thanks to eight clever pre-set functions. These settings are programmed based on expert knowledge from top professional chefs and are comprised of chopping, blending, pureeing, mixing, slicing, whisking, smoothies and ice crushing. With these core settings, there's no need to estimate how long your processor requires, standing over the unit and checking every few seconds, helping to prevent unevenly prepared dishes. In addition to the eight pre-set functions, there is a variable manual speed so you can use to your own requirements and a pulse function for short, sharp bursts of processor power. The power base unit has a stylish white/chrome finish which neatly complements contemporary and modern-looking kitchens. Inside this base is a powerful 800 watt (W) motor which powers the various stainless steel blades, a material known for being less corrosive and more resistant to rusting than others and boasts antibacterial properties that keep it hygienic.
Choose from a number of various attachments to suit your job. These include processing, dough, grating, shredding and slicing blades and there's also a plastic whisk. There are two containers to sit on top of the unit--a plastic 1.5 litre (l) jug and a plastic bowl with 1.5 l capacity, both of which are transparent to ensure clear observation.
Completing the kit is the two-piece lid enabling you to add ingredients while still processing. The unit has a convenient on-board blade storage compartment to help keep all the kit together, non-slip feet and comes with great recipes to get you inspired in the kitchen
