Great convenient design... Horrible motor- I returned mine.
1 February 2014
Summary: I got this one as a replacement for a 15 yr old Oster, that never broke... We only change mainly because of its aparence. I found the design pretty convenient. I loved the idea of having the blender and the small chopper on the same base. Got it, started using it, but unfortunately the motor was really weak. So in one hand you will get really sharp blades but in the other not a strong motor...
Summary: I have had this product for only 2-3 weeks and I am taking it back. The thing is a piece of junk! The base that houses the motor is made of plastic. I used the food processer to chop and it worked okay. I made smoothies a couple times and, tonight, I went to blend 1 cup sour cream and one cup half and half and it just stopped working. Save your money. KOHLS SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES FOR PROVIDING SUCH CHEAP QUALITY PRODUCTS!
Summary: I bought this as a set while shopping for a smaller food processor than previously owned. It is powerful and fast in slicing, chopping and shredding. It however, can tip when procesing heavy foods ie: carrots, hard cheeses. You have to hold it down to keep it on. Several black plastic particles came off the cog on the bottom when this happened to me. It needs to be able to be locked on while using like the container to prevent tipping while running!
Pros: Easy To Clean, Good Pitcher, Powerful, Reduces Prep Time
Summary: This was a replacement so I knew what to expect and was not disappointed. The blender size is perfect, the 3 cup food processor container could a little larger, but it's still a great product.
