Whether you’re making a smoothie or baking a cake, Oldrids & Downtown have the perfect food processors, food mixers and food blenders for you, both in store and online.

Make prepping food extra easy with mixersblenders, and other small cooking appliances from top brands like Morphy RichardsKenwood and Breville. It’s easy to find the perfect food processor and blender for creating tasty recipes when you shop with Oldrids.

If you’re a serious foodie and fancy your skills in the kitchen, you need the right tools for the job. Our food mixers and processors will ensure you get consistent results, and reduce the time you spend on preparation. This means you can focus on getting the flavours just right, rather than worrying about doing the heavy lifting.

We appreciate that there is a lot of choice out there, and it's difficult to really understand what the difference is between food processors, mixers and blenders. Food processors are typically the most diverse kitchen appliance and are more suited to tasks that require any slicing, chopping, dicing and grinding. A food mixer meanwhile is most useful for baking and is a fantastic choice for beating eggs, whipping creams or mixing batter. Blenders are another popular choice in the modern home and are a great choice if you frequently make smoothies or pastes as they are easy to clean, quick and usually designed for one or two people.

You can also choose from more specialist appliances including soup makers and juicers.

With modern appliances, the possibilities of attachments are endless. The main ones you want to look out for are disk based including slicers and dicers. With attachments you can diversify your food processing tasks, meaning you can create purees or slice hard cheese in a food processor which you may have not previously been able to do.

What you also need to consider is what size of food processor or mixer you require. This is largely determined by the size of meal that you frequently prepare. If you have ample cupboard space but little counter space, you may opt for something larger and stowing it away when out of use. For larger families or those who may use a food processor to entertain guests, you may also prefer a larger capacity so that you can create meals in batches. Most food processors are dishwasher safe, meaning they can be built again after each use for perfect food preparation every time.

We appreciate that choosing the right food processor, mixer or blender can be a difficult decision; so we have answered a few frequently asked questions below to help with your search.

Which is the best food processor to buy? - As mentioned, consider what you will use your kitchen appliance for such as whether you enjoy blitzing fruit and vegetables for shakes and smoothies or whether you like to prepare your own cakes and bakes in a standing mixer. The popular range of kenwood food processors are compact and versatile, ideal for preparing smaller quantities for food and meals; whilst the iconic SMEG Blenders help you achieve the perfect consistency at the touch of a button.

What food processors are available? - From freestanding artisan mixers to whip up dough into great bakes to classic KitchenAid food processors and hand blenders, you will find a fantastic range of options at Oldrids & Downtown to suit your requirements and your kitchen space. Whether you are looking to match the colour of your other appliances such as your kettle and toaster or if functionality and bowl capacity is your main priority, you can find just the right processor for you.
