I Love This Food Processor - Bowl Design is NOT a problem
16 August 2014
Summary: I have had this processor for a couple years and absolutely love it. I am buying the exact same model again after it was damaged in a fire (nothing to do with the product). I have wondered about the bowl design in the past, since it will not do a large capacity of liquid or semi-liquids, but that is why you can have a blender, too.
Summary: Received the cheaper version ($50) of this food processor for xmas but it was cheaply made and sliced the cucumbers so paper thin that I couldn't serve them with dip on a veggie platter! Returned it and ordered this one from Walmart. It is much better! The disks fit better and are solid and sturdy. You really can fit whole veggies in the chute. I even used the french fry disk to slice up potatoes to boil and then mash!
Summary: Unless I'm doing something stupid...I don't understand why the tall shaft is up the middle of the bowl, which the blade fits down over. Here's what happens when you are done processing, you are supposed to remove the blade off that tall shaft before removing the bowl from the base...#1, that's tough to do when you have a bowl full of stuff to reach into to grab a sharp blade and remove it!
Summary: I wanted a food processor so I can shred my own cheese, carrots, etc. I saw this one on eBay and couldn't believe the price as it was new, still in the box and under $30.00!!! The order process was quick and easy. The processor is very easy to use and cleanup is a snap. I watch food programs a lot where food processors are used often so I have found many uses for it, and it's fun!
Summary: I was looking for a larger food processor so that I didn't have to make sauce recipes in batches. I bought this food processor specifically because it was advertised as the largest available. It has a FATAL design flaw that potential consumers need to be aware of before making the same mistake that I did by buying this.
Summary: Rats! I did all kinds of research for food processors and was trying to save money. I ordered it to make several recipes for Christmas this year and was so hoping it would live up to its reviews. I read the instructions and followed them, so I know my difficulties were not "user error!" I didn't expect to be bothered by the short center shaft that other reviewers have complained about. I knew I could pour out the food product with the blade intact and not make a mess.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend and she loves it. It's large enough to handle whole vegetables with no problems. Don't pay too much attention to the low review scores pointing out that the central tube is too short to handle large amount of liquids without spilling out. There are $300 Cuisinart food processors that are designed the same way. If you're going to be making large amounts of liquids, use a blender.
