Hamilton Beach 10-Cup Food Processor $44.99

Hamilton Beach 10-cup food processor in black and stainless steel preparing guacamole

Food processors are true time-savers, but they can be bulky and take up valuable kitchen space. That's why we love this 10-Cup Food Processor from Hamilton Beach. It has a smaller footprint than most full-size food processors but still has a 10 cup capacity, making it perfect for most family meal prep. In addition to chopping, slicing, and pureeing it comes with a bowl scraper attachment that scrapes the sides of the bowl, keeping ingredients close to the blade without having to stop, remove the lid, and scrape the bowl!

"This far exceeded my expectations. Sounds and operates like a real professional of much higher quality. I haven't had any need to use the side scraper as it does just fine without it. I have made everything from guacamole to energy bites with very sticky dates and crunchy hazelnuts to work with. This machine is absolutely fantastic. I love it! There is no need to buy a much more expensive device as this one does a great job by itself." says drccs10 in their five-star review.

No need to worry if you're late getting home. I also love the locks on the top of the crockpot! You can take it in the car and not worry about spills, the top stays on and you carry it using the handles on the side.

And when you're done, it can be put in the dishwasher for easy cleanup!

"This is a wonderful press the does a great job getting all the juice out of your fruits. It usually manages to catch the seeds as well. One suggestion for making it a little bit easier to use is to cut off a little of the back end of the half fruit that you’re pressing so that it’s a little flatter. This helps to keep the fruit centered in the bottom part of the press and insurers more complete juice extraction." says Jonathan Stafford in his online review.
