Summary: I love this machine, it's very easy to use and put together. It is quite a bit bigger than I expected but the chopper blade is low enough to reach small amounts. I've only had it a few days but I've crumbed pastry and used the chopper blade to cut my beef into mince for cottage pie. I have also used it to mash potato. Now I have this great machine I can't wait to use it more often. Making changes makes me nervous but this was a good choice. Very good value for money.
Pros: Good size (not too big) most parts fit into bowl for storage-good motor, No box for blades
Summary: I actually thought this was a cream colour but it is in fact brilliant white. Would have preferred cream but my fault for not checking!! Loose drive shaft is not a problem once you know about it - just take the bowl off over the work surface and it wont end up on the floor!! This is replacing a Philips 20 year old processor still going strong but I broke the safety catch on the lid when I dropped it (the only piece that broke off-typical!!).
