Summary: Did not work out of the box. Appears to be a problem with the safety switch. If I used an implement to depress the switch, the processor would turn on. Refined junk. I will not buy the same brand again.
Summary: I purchased this item in July 2015 while in the process of moving. I pulled it out of the box today and tried to use it for the first time. Very disappointed to find that it will not even power on.
Summary: We have had two of these fail on us when the blade gets stuck on the stem because the plastic is so cheaply made. Both times we were mixing dough which a well made processor should have no problem handling. This company used to make solid products and it's a shame they have sunk to this level.
Cheaply made junk Kitchenaid should be embarrassed to be associated with.

Summary: If I still had the box it was packed in I would send it back. I am a professional cook and have higher quality kitchen aid items I use, but wanted a back-up for simple tasks without spending a ton. I overpaid at any price. This machine is useless.
Seems to be a cheap knockoff of a good thing. I retired it

Summary: The price was what attracted me. Also that the company said they hired veterans to work there. So, two incentives. When I tried to wash off the manufacturing oil before using it, the bowl cover slipped out of my hand and cracked into three pies. I glued it.
