    The main difference between a food processor and a grinder is the result of the foods run through the devices. A food processor normally chops, grates or slices. As the name of the tool implies, a food grinder, by comparison, cuts, crushes and mashes the food, forming a mushy or very fine product that doesn't always have clear pieces.

    The difference in how a food processor and a grinder work mean that food grinders are better for making pastes, spreads or patties. For instance, some models grind meat for hamburger patties or sausage well. Other grinders are excellent for grinding grains, herbs or beans, such as one might do for coffee, seasonings or flour. A food processor, by comparison, is good for things such as potato salads, stuffing, or shredded cheeses.

  • The coarseness of the grind.

    Food processors tend to turn everything into pap.
