Food processors were used in commercial kitchens long before home models were introduced. Professional models are two to four times larger than the largest home mod-els.They consist of a motor in a heavy base, topped by a cylindrical workbowl containing an S-shaped blade. Processors are used to chop or purée foods, including raw or cooked meats, and to mix or emulsify such items as sauces and flavored butters.With special disk attachments in place of the standard blade, they can also slice, shred, and julienne solid foods such as vegetables.
In basic design, a food processor is similar to a vertical cutter/mixer.The same do's and don'ts should be observed.
