WILL NOT WORK IN THE USA!!! ....................NO FUNCIONA EN EL EE.UU. !!!
20 August 2014
Summary: WILL NOT WORK IN THE USA!!! I learned the hard way, I had to give 5 stars because it arrived intact and likely works, (though i had to pay for the return) but this definitely will not work in the US (unless of course you happen to have a voltage converter...
Summary: About 25 years ago I had a Braun Multipractic (sp?) and it lasted a very long time with no problems at all until I dropped it and bent the spindle. My husband bought me a Hamilton Beach at a local department store and that was a big zero.
Summary: I cannot tell you how much I love this food processor. Previously, the only processor I had owned was a Cuisinart mini-prep that left half of the material juiced while the other half was still huge pieces. Why bother? The Braun does everything I had hoped for and more.
Summary: We did a lot of research on different food processors and went to stores and inspected the features of many different models. There was one thing that really bothered us about most of the processors on the market.
Summary: I haven't used this much yet, but it seems to work well. I had, but never used, a food processor before so I can't compare it against other models or brands. It's nice that everything is dishwasher-safe. I do have some quibbles: There is no storage of any kind for the blades.
Summary: I research and research when I buy things and this was the processor I picked. I was really close to getting a Kitchenaid food processor because I like so many of their other things, but I was worried about all the leaking comments.
Summary: I bought this in May 2010, have used it gently about once a month. thanksgiving 2011 was the first time I tried to grate cheese (medium cheddar) and it stripped. Now it is useless and nothing can be done about it. No parts, no service. Braun has stopped making food processors.
Summary: I bought this from Amazon because it's rare to find a product with such a high percentage of 5 star reviews. Well, the reviews were right. This is a solid machine. Period. It's quiet, well balanced, and a dream to clean.
