Reviews and Problems with Hamilton Beach Big Mouth
Showing 1-10 of 174
large and generated crumbs all over my kitchen
31 December 2014
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: This is a great value. I had a Cusinart blender/food processor combo which the motor burned out within 2 years :( I like the the fact that this is a really simple unit. The options are on-off-pulse it's that easy. Everything stores within the bowl :) for easy storage. It works really well, in fact the motor seems pretty powerful. If you are looking for a good, easy to use unit this is it and the price is a bargain hunters dream.
Summary: For the one time that this processor worked, it was wonderful. I thought it was amazing, it blended so nicely and quickly. I was so excited to use it again and when I turned the on button with an excited jitter and got nothing, I was not impressed. I would HIGHLY NOT recommend this product to anyone. We went to WalMart and bought a cheaper, Black and Decker processor and it's been great!!
Summary: NEGATIVES: 1. Knob control - hard to turn to when hands are wet, which is all the time for me after washing and chopping vegetables for processing into unit. I have to dry my hands first before trying to turn knob. Regular ON/OFF switch would have been much better. 2. Too much space between end of Food Shute and Slicing Blade.
