This or That Thursday
Food Processor or Blender?
Jun 19, 2017

You’ve been tasked with making your famous plum salsa for the family BBQ this weekend! Instead of chopping all the ingredients by hand (you know just how long that can take) you decide to try an electric chopping appliance instead. You could use your blender’s “chop” setting or give the food processor a try, but you aren’t sure which one to go with. To help make the decision a little easier, we’ve rounded up some data that compares how much energy each appliance typically uses!

Let’s look at wattage.

Food Processor = 360 Watts < Blender = 400 Watts

Conclusion: While you’re in the pantry about to grab your appliance for that famous plum salsa, reach for the food processor! It uses less energy than the blender which will reduce your energy use and julienne everything to perfection. Now that you know which appliance to use, get to making that salsa!
