Price: $30 to $60

Comments: KitchenAid offers a smaller chopper option than Cuisinart, their main competitor in the food processor category. At only three cups, the Chef’s Chopper ($60) would be a good option for folks looking to make a few servings at a time.  KitchenAid offers other processors up to a 12-cup size (with second 10-cup bowl included), which rate very well in Consumer Reports—comparable to a Cuisinart.
