A Kitchen Machine works differently from a Food Processor as the tools used for mixing are suspended from an overhead arm into the food, whereas with a Food Processor, the mixing tools operate from underneath the ingredients. A Kitchen Machine is primarily for mixing dough and cake mixtures. A Food Processor can do these jobs but not with the efficiency of a kitchen machine. If you are planning on making cakes you should consider how much you will be doing this job. If it is going to be a common occurrence then a Kitchen Machine would be a better choice. It is worth taking note of the fact that a Food Processor is far smaller than a Kitchen Machine.
