Summary: First food processor and I absolutely love this thing! I use it for just about everything now. I do most cooking ar home every evening and 5 out of the 7 days I use this. Great addition to my kitchen. Love the French fry attachment too.
Summary: I got my unit on another site by redeeming shopping points so I can't return it -- if I could return it I would. I used it once to process melba toast into crumbs. The slot for the white 'gate' that should close off the exit chute is about twice as wide as the gate while it made great crumbs, I had crumbs on the counter and the floor -- even when I pressed against the gate to try to keep it closed.
Summary: 5 Years Later! After running through 4-5 very expensive food processors in less than 2 years, I bought this little Hamilton Beach as an inexpensive stop gap; that was in Feb. 2009. Since, I have made everything from chopped vegys to pie crusts with it without a moments trouble. I use this processor almost every day. Very easy to clean. Simple to use. The best food processor I've ever owned at an unbeatable price.
I love it! There are numerous complaints about this unit ...

Summary: I had an older, very basic food processor that had a small bowl. I finally got tired of constantly having to stop and empty the bowl. Then I found this one. Although it has a very large capacity, it has a footprint similar to most other simalr processors with smaller bowls. And it is not much bigger footprint wise than my old small unit. It works extremely fast and efficiently.
Returning it--poor design doesn't grab food, & can only fill 1/4 or it oozes into middle shaft.

Summary: I loved using my old Hamilton Beach 70590 for YEARS. When it went out, I was thrilled to find this 70575 replacement with 14 cup bowl, howEVER, I am SURE I will be returning it, for 2 Reasons: 1) POOR design with how the blades sit, because I had to keep stopping and stir things around with a spoon in order to get it to grab the food, and chop it. Last night it took me forEVER to puree soft-cooked butternut squash.
Summary: I was under the impression that all of the big mouth blenders included the small bowl. Maybe that's my fault. But either way, that's why I took off a star for the listing/seller. I thought this was a bonus having the ferry blade. It's not, it's a trade oft. I'm guessing I'm not alone considering the small bowl is unavailable through all parts dealers online, and direct from the manufacturer. Otherwise, it's fine.
Pros: Super high capacity, built well, sturdy, lots of options, includes the fry blade
Cons: This particular listing/model does not include the small bowl.
