Cannot not beat it for the price. Consumer Reports good buy.

Summary: I must say, considering the price of this machine is a third of a Cuisinart (my Cuisinart bowl started leaking through a crack after decades) I went with the Consumer Reports suggestion that this was a bit noisey but that it chopped, grated, cliced and performed its functions well.
apart from the very stupid centerpiece of the main bowl

Summary: All works well . . . apart from the very stupid centerpiece of the main bowl. As commented by other reviewers, it only extends for an inch or so from the base. This means that when you lift the bowl off the base, the liquid contents of the bowl flow out through the centerpiece if more than about 1/4...
Summary: This was a good price and I'd never had a food processor so I tried it. We especially like homemade french fries and this does make it very easy. It take some patience to learn how to position the potato (lay a full, peeled or not, uncut potato down on its side, then hold in place with the..
Summary: This is a very big piece of equipment, but has the capacity I needed to be able to prepare box cake mixes as I did in my old food processor. The larger size is necessary to avoid messes because of the difference in spindle design from the older machines.
Summary: This food processor is much more durable than the last on I had. I use it a lot to shred cheese and the cheese turns out great. It cleans up easily in the dishwasher. Another thing that is nice is there are not a lot of places that food can get stuck in the cover.
Summary: This food processor has a major flaw in the design if you plan to use it for anything juicy or that might have liquid in it. When you remove the plastic bowl the shaft is very short and so everything runs out, you can't remove it and pour it out.
Summary: Like the other buyers I discovered that the jar is too big and the shaft that holds the blade is very short so it can't be used for large liquidy preps like salsa. For small amounts its ok so why not get a smaller processor? For drier stuff I guess it's okay.
Summary: I really like the food processor. I'm using it primarily to make baby food. I make his food in large quantities and freeze it. It works great for my needs. But as others have posted the middle is to short.
Summary: This is the first food processor I've owned and it's made cooking more enjoyable and easier. I mainly use it for chopping, pureeing, mixing, shredding and slicing. I even mixed a meatloaf in it, which I wouldn't recommend doing because it chopped the meat too fine, but it tasted wonderful.
