Summary: I am just stunned with all these negative reviews - I have had mine for four years - got one for others as Christmas gifts also - we ALL LOVE IT - couldn't cook a meal without it. Yes you need to use a spatula to remove the cheese - what horrros - I mean seriously - has everyone gone nuts - it is a machine making a cooking easier BUT YOU DO HAVE TO DO SOMETHING AND OF COURSE CLEAN IT.
Summary: Love this machine! I've had one for many years and use it constantly to shred cheese. I was sick when the motor finally gave out. I purchased a used one and it works fabulously! I wish they would come out with a current model!
Summary: An excellent grater, with three grater cylinders of different sizes. This grater is convenient, very efficient, more effective than either of our food processors (including DLC-X, now about 25 yrs old). Unfortunately, the device is no longer made or supported, but used items in good shape are likely to be available. Our recent purchase was an example, and we are very pleased.
Point and shoot food processor is the easiest ever.

Summary: I love this processor. It is the quickest I have ever used to prepare ground nuts for some of our traditional holiday treats. I bought it because I had used one at my son's house and it was great. It also cleans and stores nicely. I also liked the price.
Summary: I really love this tool. I loved it so much that I got one for my mom too. I bought it just to grind walnuts so I don't have to use the hand crank. It makes it really easy to grind walnuts and it's fast too. I shredded cabbage and it did a nice job. The cord retracts just like any other product I've had so I'm not disappointed there either. I was really surpised by the low scores in these reviews.
Summary: My wife used a Moulinex (no longer in Business) food processor for years and was extremely pleased with it. The opening was narrower than the Cuisinart Prep Express and it rotated slower. The cutting drum/ body clearance was tighter and the design did not allow food to get past the rear of the cutting/grinding drum as happens with the Cuisinart. The Cuisinart spins so fast that food flies all over.
Summary: I purchased this item locally (in Jamaica) for my staff to reduce Preparation time for salads. The product is such a hit with them that there is competition to use it. I am disappointed that it does not seem to do onions, lettuce and cucumbers without turning them to mush, also the chute could be bigger.
Summary: Too much food remains in the part that does not detach. I shred carrots for my husband and I loose a good bit of the carrots that are left in the machine. The space between the cutter and the casing is where the carrots gather. The cord also does not retract easily. I have to actually push it back into the machine.
Summary: I was very excited to get this small kitchen appliance as I thought it would make the process of shredding and grating produce much quicker. This gadget is poorly designed in every way. For starters, the spout is too low for most bowls. No mixing bowl that I have fits underneath. Second, the angle of the spout is not sharp enough. I have to constantly cut the power to reach my hand inside and pull out processed vegetables.
