Features of the Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor

Breville BFP800CBXL Sous Chef Food Processor RevieAt first glance, what catches the eye is the large and bold BPA-free label on the extra large work bowl. BPA, or bis-phenol A, is a toxic substance used in the production of most plastics, but the Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor has taken the high road and made a durable poly-carbonate work bowl without BPA – thus avoiding the risk of this chemical leaching into the food being prepared.  At the heart of the unit is a 1200-watt electric motor that provides exceptional power and speed to the slicing, chopping, mixing, and what have you to food, coupled with a 5.5 inch extra wide feed chute that can accommodate much more varied types and sizes of ingredients that must be worked on. There is also an additional, smaller cup included in the package, a 2.5 cup bowl made of the same BPA-free material as the larger one. The premium blades and discs that can be swapped to process any type of food or gourmet task are valued at about $200 when purchased separately, but are instead included in the purchase of the Sous Chef Food Processor; they come in the form of 5 multi-function discs (slicing, julienne, French fry, reversible shredding, and whisking) and 3 blades, each with their own purpose. The slicing disc alone has a whopping 24 adjustable settings to conform to the thickness of the necessary slice, from 0.3mm up to 8mm slices, while the S-blade can chop through the toughest of material with use. Aside from this, the Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor comes with a safety locking system that prevents the motor from initiating an operation when the lid is not securely fastened, and has a non-skid base to prevent the unit from toppling, especially during high-speed operations. At its modern, chic exterior, an LCD timer with count down and count up functions are visible, and the controls enable auto-pulse and pause functions. It also comes with a spatula and a cleaning brush, and all its accessories can be removed and stored in a special accessory storage case that is designed to be kept in either a horizontal or vertical position, depending on the need.  With a dimension of 10.2 inches by 8 inches by 17.8 inches and weighing 26 pounds, the powerful motor is reliably backed by a 25-year warranty.

Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor User Reviews

Breville Sous Chef Food ProcessorThough pricier than its counterparts, users recommend the Breville Sous Chef over other food processors because it can do the work of two or more food processors in the same range with the price of one. Its powerful motor is an attractive selling point, and the variety of tools that come along with it is also a great factor. Users note that the unit, whose removable parts are all dishwasher safe, are harder to clean though, but otherwise in the performance department it outstrips every competition. This is a highly recommended product for users who may want to invest once in a long-lasting machine.
