Summary: I have only had one opportunity to use this machine so far and for that one job, it worked wonderfully. I found that I will need to purchase at least one more disc (thin slicing disc for sure).
Summary: This is a powerful machine--handles everything I throw at it including shredding hard parmesan cheese, bread dough, slicing and chopping vegetables, pureeing soup and sauces. I love the option of using the smaller feed tube. Great!
Summary: My cheapie food processor just up and quit one day and as I used it every day, I needed another one pronto. We hadn't had the cheapo very long either,so the price was a false economy. It was a 7 cup unit and I wanted a larger one, as I was doing things like processing an entire cabbage plus multiple other types of foods at a time and had to break it up into many small batches.
