Summary: This is my first ever food processor and I love it. I bought this particular model because it's a Consumer Reports "Best Buy" for quality and price.

Summary: I bought this Oster food processor about 3 years ago. The plastic lid dropped on the floor and broke. When I tried to replace it, I was informed that this model was no longer being made. Do NOT buy this food processor.
Summary: The Oster 3212 does a fine job of slicing and shredding, the almost exclusive use I make of it. It uses just one blade that you turn over to switch between slicing and shredding, which I would call a convenience.
Summary: I purchased this processor because it was one of the more compact designs and made it easier to store. It is a little heavier than expected but is everything I was looking for. Blends, mixes & cleans up fast.
Summary: The "french fry cutter" shreds, does not make french fries. Throws food all over when adding next piece into the shute for cutting. Checked the manual, checked parts, but no joke, this is a shredder, not a french fry cutter. Better cut your fries by hand, and save this for your shredding jobs.
Summary: I chose this processor for my first because of best buy Consumer Reports ranking. It has been easy to use and I am already cooking with it regularly. I've been able to prepare large batches of chopped and shredded vegetables in less than 5 minutes.
