Commercial food processors come in several sizes. The largest ones can process over 1,000 pounds an hour, while smaller ones can do a few dozen pounds an hour. Interchangeable discs allow you to process different types of food and get different types of cut. Popular blades are: julienne for long, narrow cuts, grating for shreds, dicing for small cubes. Blade attachments let you chop, slice whip and puree. Denser food like raw potatoes and other root vegetables will necessitate a higher horsepower processor.
