Works great, if you clean the blade assembly regularly.

Summary: I have had this blender/food processor for a few years now and I love it. My wife loves the processor and uses it at least once a week. Since day one, I have made a smoothie every morning with a banana, frozen berries, cran-grape juice, and various powders. About six months ago it looked liked the motor was dying as other reviewers have experienced, complete with burning rubber smell.
Summary: We had just bought the blender a few months before. I had the original bowl too close to the heat return on my stove top and it melted. I found the plastic bowl component on eBay, bought it for less than $20 and had it in less than a week. Perfect solution!
Summary: Love my Cuisinart BFP-10CH Power Blender Food Processor. I've been using it for several months now. It is easy to assemble/disassemble and instruction booklet is easy to follow. I don 't hesitate to take it out and make smoothies using ice or rich, smooth soups in just moments. I researched and compared before buying this one and Highly recommend it.
Summary: After reading multiple reviews and feedback for this item, I was hesitant to try it out- never owned a duet blender/food processor before and was worried about the 'burning smell,' not enough power to the blender, etc. I decided to try it out and I love it! It did produce a burning smell, but only the first 2 times I used it- no problems since. I use the blender everyday and have used the food processor at least a dozen times.
Summary: The blender was larger than I had anticipated. The food processor was smaller. My primary reason for purchasing it was for the food processor not the blender. It is not chrome as advertised but polished plastic. It's OK but I think this borders on false advertising. If I new it was plastic I probably would have chose another model.
