Summary: Yes, this is 2 years after buying the food processor but this negative review may prevent anyone buying this rubbish. From the start there was a hot motor smell which I thought at the time was just because it was new. This persisted and I used it infrequently. I finally took the item to the recycling depot after 18 months for fear of it bursting into flames.
Summary: Dont be fooled by the Kenwood name or reputation. This is the single worst product I have ever purchased. After a few light uses, breadcrumbs, pesto, smoothies etc, the motor started to smell. Then one day, making a smoothy with fresh fruit it just burnt out,a mass of smoke filling the kitchen. It was only a couple of months out of the 1 year warranty. Contacted Kenwood, they obviously didn't want to know about it.

Summary: I've bought this to make smoothies and sauces, and as a slicing machine for onions when I make onion soup and don't want to sob while cutting a bagful of those. The motor is advertised as being fairly powerful, which is why I thought to try it. Does it do the job? Well... yes and no. It's a very 'ok' food processor - it has many attachments and comes with several slicing disks.
Summary: I chose this model as I wanted something of a reasonable size and power that I could use mostly to make pastry - it does this really well. I already had a liquidiser so dont use that but the chopping discs are useful too although sometimes its quicker to just use a knife cos of all the washing up with the mixer. It looks nice too.
Summary: Lacking in kitchen surface space I decided to go for a compact processor. The only thing Kenwood shrunk was the dimensions. This seems to cope equally as well with every task as it's bigger counterparts. Clearly it is a compact when it comes to capacity but that really has never. Limited my enthusiasm for this little powerhouse. On a couple of occasions I have had to empty it once and process the rest of the batch...
