A lot of food processors also come with a dough blade or hook which is useful for mixing food items with yeast like bread dough.

Another common attachment that is included with a food processor is a shredding/slicing blade. You will find that these blades come in different sizes allowing you to slice and shred your food items into a fine, coarse and a medium finish.

5. Blender

There are two types of blender attachments that are included with a food processor, one is a blender jug which is basically a replacement of the bowl and the other is a blender canopy which is attached inside the bowl and is in contact with the blade and is known to help in blending.

A jug blender comes handy when you are planning to make puree or sauce and can provide more versatility to your food processor without taking up more space in the kitchen. A blender canopy, on the other hand, is used in addition to the standard blade and is useful in providing a consistent and smooth blend.

6. Citrus press

Many food processors also come with a citrus press attachment which is useful is pressing fruits and vegetables to get their juice.

7. Mill

Many premium food processor models also offer a mill attachment which is handy in making little quantities of puree, grinding coffee beans and herbs, and so on. While a mill attachment is different from a bowl, many food processors also include a mini bowl attachment which performs the same task as a mill.

8. Whisk

Another popular food processor attachment is a whisk beater or a paddle. These food processors include twin beaters and metal beaters are found to be more effective although they won’t be as good as a stand mixer.
