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 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: We agree with the negatives mentioned here in the other reviews. Certainly not up to the manufacturer's normal standards. There is a lot of waste. Cheese, forget it. As others state, it's a design flaw. The gap between the housing and cutting drums is too big. Shredding meat is impossible, so forget making ham salad. The ham wads up in the gap and the motor just can't take it. The one difference in our shredder is the cord. There is no lock on our cord.
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: The performance you get from the device really depends on what you're doing with it. Here is my experience, item by item, followed by some general observations: Hard Cheese (Pecerino Romano, Parm, Reggiano): Shreds with no problem unsing the regular or fine shredding wheel. Comes out of shoot with no problems. Cheddar Cheese: Again, shreds with no problem, but does collect in shoot on the way out.
Summary: I have had the PrepExpress for about 2 months now. Initially, I was ok with it. I now notice it binds on carrots, overheats and turns itself off. It is also kind of messy. Things that aren't really firm, like celery or onions, turn to mush. I have to clean it out several times as I go along. I have actually looked at hand chopping as a better alternative...saves time in the long run and reduces mess and clean up.
Summary: I am just excited when I tried through all the three drums, slicing a melon, grating a carrot, and shredding a chunk of cheese. The result of the first two were just fantastic. The tasks were done quickly and nicely! Cleaning up just took me a couple of minutes. The cheese that I used, however, was probably a bad choice. I used mozzarella. It was too soft so kind of stuck the drum. It also took me so much time to clean up the cheese that remained in the grooves.
