Summary: I also bought the black and decker stainless and black food processor.
I previously had for many years La Machine by Moulinex. I got a small crack in the La Machine bowl part and so I then bought the new black and decker powerpro2 500 watts.
I wish I had not thrown away my La Machine, the black and decker
latch broke on the first use and the disc blade came apart on the second use. it is a piece of junk. I put it in the trash.
Summary: This is my first food processor. I use it daily and it seems to work just fine for the simple tasks I need it to do. I do wish it had an on/off button and I wish the feeder was bigger. I have to cut items fairly small to get them to fit through the feeder.
Summary: The price was certainly interesting, just under $[...] compared to a Kitchen Aid, $[...].
The design problem I find is that the cover has a double lip, that is there the cover is both inside and outside the bowl. Another way to describe it is the bowl ends up inserted in the cover. The problem with this is that it is a pain to clean because nothing will fit in this cover crease but a brush.
Summary: After reading several bad reviews I had decided not to get it - even though, at the price, 10 cup size and strong engine power of 500 watts it seemed the best deal compared to other brands that cost twice as much, or even more.
Anyway, I had written it off until I happened to see a unit on display at Target and was able to touch it and inspect it for myself. It looked perfectly fine to me. The blade seemed thick and sturdy.
Summary: I bought this processor about 1 month ago and I have used it several times in it's diferent tasks and modes: made dough for bread and pizza, chopped beef,sliced and puree vegetables, etc. and can tell you people who gave it 1 star review that it is not fair, basically because you mistreated and broke the machine in the first place!.
