Why Breville Sous Chef Food Processor Is A Big Helper In The Kitchen – Full Review

It's difficult for the average consumer to know the best food processor for their needs from one that would be a waste of money.

Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor

It’s more difficult now than it ever was.

Why?

Primarily because of bad outsourcing practices used by certain companies.

I was a Quality Assurance Manager in one of the bigger brand in home appliances, and I know my stuff, you can bet on it. That’s why I make it a rule of thumb to:

  1. Only review products made in the US, Canada or Western Europe
  2. Only review products that I know are outsourced to locations that will maintain the quality of the products

So, let’s dig right into the review of this Breville, one of the best food processors on the market today.

See more pictures and customer reviews on this amazon dedicated page.

Here’s what we’ll do in the review:

  1. Take a look at the product specifications
  2. Take a look at customer reviews, both positive and negative ones
  3. Give it an overall quality rating in my review summary

The positive reviews of this food processor – the PROs:

 

  • I’m a chef and I am very strict with my kitchen equipment but I love this processor so much that I am starting to hate it…
  • amazed at the power of the engine…
  • A real eye-candy, I get compliments on it left and right from my guests…
  • Fits perfectly under the kitchen pieces. I got the Cranberry Red, and it looks amazing…for me, worth every dime…
  • No hole at the bottom like my in my previous Kitchen Aid, which would always drip if you fill it too much, the container is marked like a measuring cup…everything about this product seems bigger, stronger, faster, better…
  • I was shopping around and researching for a food processor upgrade for months before I decided to go with this Breville…no regrets so far…
  • great customer service – when I dropped the small bowl and chipped it they sent me a new one for free within 3 days…
  • everything that my old processor wasn’t…
  • quiet and so easy to use…
  • Finally decided to pamper myself and get a really good processor. What the heck, if my husband can spend thousands on aluminum whatever for his car, I can spend a couple of hundred on something that seems like it will last me a lifetime…
  • It literally makes my life easier…
  • chopping takes seconds…
  • It cuts the preparation time of some of my meals in half…
  • I had my doubts but all things considered, now that I have this processor, it seems like a bargain…
  • The machine makes chopping salads almost too easy…
  • If this food processor cost twice as much it would still be worth every penny, compared to the junk I used to have…
  • I am trying to find flaws but I think it was impossible getting a better machine…
  • I would recommend this machine to anybody anytime, it made my days in the kitchen fun…
  • It was a mess with my previous Cuisinart, especially getting the lid just in place so that it would work. This Breville is slick, fast and easy to use…great value for money…
  • I am writing this review after 6 months of use and I’ll try to be unbiased. Amazing adjustable slicing blade – so no more mandolin for me, versatile with the attachments, so far seems sturdy and strong…and I cannot even begin to explain all the ways it’s better than my old processor…
  • A major, really major upgrade from my old food processor…anything that I’ll ever need from a food processor…
  • Even if this Breville dies at some point, I am getting the same one if they are still on the market by then…
  • Just beautiful, amazing workmanship…
  • you can buy it online at Amazon

The negative reviews – the CONs:

  • the small bowl is not that useful…
  • pretty heavy and big…
  • my machine was getting stuck all the time, so I sent it back…waiting for the replacement…
  • I bake a lot and I expected it to be better with the dough…

My reviews resume:

Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor partsOne of the best home food processors on the market, in my book at least. I’ve seen it action, and it’ss almost too powerful and fast for its own good.

It is big and a bit on the heavier side, but that’s to be expected from a product that packs so much “heath”. Versatile, even more so than you might’ve thought after seeing the specifications, because you can adjust how thick (thin) the slicer works (24 settings for one disc).

Very smart design.

The tube is wide enough for you to forget pre-cutting. A huge relief.

Professional quality in your kitchen. Overall Quality Rating of 4.8 stars.

It’s good to see someone still standing behind the quality of their products.
