Summary: I share the same disappointment as other reviewers. I ran this unit once a week for 2 years and then it stopped working. The beefy looking hardware is not so durable. Unfortunately this product suffers from the same "China syndrome" that so many products seem to be afflicted with these days.
Summary: My husband and I purchased this food processor to help us feed his gazpacho addiction :-), and we have been quite pleased with it. I am a very experienced cook, but my husband is not -- and this machine works for both of us. It is intuitive to use and reasonably easy to clean. The only quibble we have is that the enclosed DVD is a few years old, and uses an older model for demonstration. That was a bit confusing for a rookie like my husband.
Summary: We bought this last week and happily cooked a week's worth of meals with it this weekend. I love how quiet it is! I shredded some onions while my honey was asleep, and not a peep from him. It just purred like a cat.
It is quite powerful, and buzzed right through the vegetables like a champ.
The safety features are absolutely necessary; you could practically fit your entire arm in the chute if it didn't stop when you remove the pusher from the feeder chute.
Summary: I received this as a wedding gift and was very excited about it. I promptly opened it to make something, but could never get it to work. I've had food processors before, so I know everything has to be locked just so for it to function. I'm sure this one was set up correctly, but it would not operate. Since it has zero user feedback, I couldn't even tell if the unit was getting power (but I tried different outlets that I know work).
