Hamilton Beach 70760 Food Processor Review 2021: Worth the Money or not?

The good news is- I’m here to help you.

I worked in quality assurance with one of the bigger brands in the industry and I’ve been reviewing food processors on this website for years. In this short review, I will try to get you a step or two closer to making the purchase that fits your needs perfectly.

Hamilton Beach 70760 Food Processor

What’s in the review:

  1. We’ll review the specifications of this product – as provided by Hamilton Beach
  2. We’ll take into careful consideration both positive and negative end-user reviews
  3. I’ll summarize everything and give the product a final rating

Product Specifications:

  • Powerful 500-watt motor
  • Chop onions, grate cheese, mix sauces, prepare pesto, shred cabbage, or slice vegetables for salad in a matter of seconds
  • Large feeding tube; fits a whole block of cheese
  • Chopping blade and slice and shred reversible discs are included in this offer
  • The lid can be flipped over for easy storage; saves cabinet space
  • So far everything sounds peachy, but let’s see what real end users have to say about this food processor.

Positive User Reviews 

  • This is the very best food processor I’ve had so far. It does the job quickly and efficiently. It’s really easy to use, and it doesn’t take up too much space.
  • So far it has worked great on nuts, vegetables, combinations of those two, cheese, herbs. We’ve even made guacamole, pesto, hummus, and salsa for dinner parties since it has such a generous capacity, and it works wonders.
  • This machine is truly the fastest I’ve had so far. It got delivered super fast, and it’s really easy to use and easy to clean. No complaints…
  • It looks really great in my kitchen, and I like the design. It also looks like it’s built to last.
  • It does what it says it will on the box. It’s cut my prep time in half, and I’m really grateful for that.
  • The motor is really powerful, and the blades are super sharp, so it chops anything so fast
  • I use the pulse option most of the time. It’s really easy to clean, and it’s a great unit to have if you often cook for more than 2 people or want to store a big batch of, let’s say pesto…
  • It came super fast and in a wonderful box…it would make a great present, too…
  • I started canning, and this little guy was of so much help. And not just for vegetables, but for the cheese too…
  • It’s really easy to store, it doesn’t take up too much space for a big food processor. Smart design…
  • It’s not only really inexpensive, but it works just as well as my old one that costs twice as much…
  • It’s almost 50% cheaper to grate your own cheese than buy the shredded kind…
  • It looks really sturdy, so I hope it lasts for a long time…
  • It’s really easy to assemble, use, and then clean this product. I’m definitely going to make more salads and cook more home-made meals now that I have this bad boy…
  • Does exactly what it says it will. It doesn’t take up too much space…
  • There are no small parts, just three big ones…loving the simplicity of it…
  • This is simply a really great food processor with a great capacity. Just the right size for my big family dinners…
  • It does a great job at both chopping and mixing…

Negative User Reviews 

  • I didn’t realize just how big a bowl capacity a 10-cup processor has. I usually cook for two people, so I should’ve gone with a mini food processor…
  • I wish there was some kind of slow setting…
  • I measured how many cups of water it can fit until it reaches the recommended maximum line, and it’s only 6-7 cups. It technically fits 10, but you can’t process it as well as when you use the recommended amount…
  • My bowl broke after a week of use…

My Final Review 

And now for my favorite part- the final evaluation and grading of this product. So far we pretty much got the picture of what this Hamilton can and can’t do.

It’s a big and powerful machine that is multipurpose as well. As an ex Quality Assurance Manager, I really tried my best to find some major flaws or shortcomings to warn you about.

Unlike most units with many features, this food processor showed satisfying results when tested for every one of them.

The only thing I need to warn you about and trust me, I can’t stress this one enough, is the fact that any and every food processor bowl has a minimum and maximum requirement.

Basically, that means that it won’t work well at all if you stuff it over max capacity, and you wouldn’t get any results if you put too little food inside either. So, don’t take the advertising number for granted.

What Is A Food Processor?

In case you haven’t caught up to speed yet, let me explain in simple terms what is a food processor. Food processors are exceptionally popular kitchen appliances. They are a worthy addition to your wonderful

Breville Sous Chef Food Processor Review

Why Breville Sous Chef Food Processor Is A Big Helper In The Kitchen – Full Review

It’s more difficult now than it ever was.


Primarily because of bad outsourcing practices used by certain companies.

I was a Quality Assurance Manager in one of the bigger brands in home appliances, and I know my stuff, you can bet on it. That’s why I make it a rule of thumb to:

  1. Only review products made in the US, Canada, or Western Europe
  2. Only review products that I know are outsourced to locations that will maintain the quality of the products

So, let’s dig right into the review of this Breville, one of the best food processors on the market today.

Breville Sous Chef Food Processor Review

Here’s what we’ll do in the review:

  1. Take a look at the product specifications
  2. Take a look at customer reviews, both positive and negative ones
  3. Give it an overall quality rating in my review summary


  • Out of the box, it includes 5 multifunctional discs and 3 blades
  • No more pre-cutting the fruits and veggies because of the super-wide feed tube (5.5″)
  • 2 bowls (16 cups and 2.5 cup mini bowl)
  • LCD screen with a count-up and count-down timer
  • color choices
  • can be stored both horizontally and vertically
  • Built by North American standards

Positive Customer Reviews 

  • I’m a chef and I am very strict with my kitchen equipment but I love this processor so much that I am starting to hate it…
  • amazed at the power of the engine…
  • A real eye-candy, I get compliments on it left and right from my guests…
  • Fits perfectly under the kitchen pieces. I got the Cranberry Red, and it looks amazing…for me, worth every dime…
  • No hole at the bottom like my in my previous Kitchen Aid, which would always drip if you fill it too much, the container is marked like a measuring cup…everything about this product seems bigger, stronger, faster, better…
  • I was shopping around and researching for a food processor upgrade for months before I decided to go with this Breville…no regrets so far…
  • great customer service – when I dropped the small bowl and chipped it they sent me a new one for free within 3 days…
  • everything that my old processor wasn’t…
  • quiet and so easy to use…
  • Finally decided to pamper me and get a really good processor. What the heck, if my husband can spend thousands on aluminum whatever for his car, I can spend a couple of hundred on something that seems like it will last me a lifetime…
  • It literally makes my life easier…
  • chopping takes seconds…
  • It cuts the preparation time of some of my meals in half…
  • I had my doubts but all things considered, now that I have this processor, it seems like a bargain…
  • The machine makes chopping salads almost too easy…
  • If this food processor cost twice as much it would still be worth every penny, compared to the junk I used to have…
  • I am trying to find flaws but I think it was impossible getting a better machine…
  • I would recommend this machine to anybody anytime, it made my days in the kitchen fun…
  • It was a mess with my previous Cuisinart, especially getting the lid just in place so that it would work. This Breville is slick, fast, and easy to use…great value for money…
  • I am writing this review after 6 months of use and I’ll try to be unbiased. Amazing adjustable slicing blade – so no more mandolin for me, versatile with the attachments, so far seems sturdy and strong…and I cannot even begin to explain all the ways it’s better than my old processor…
  • A major, really major upgrade from my old food processor…anything that I’ll ever need from a food processor…
  • Even if this Breville dies at some point, I am getting the same one if they are still on the market by then…
  • Just beautiful, amazing workmanship…

Negative Reviews

  • the small bowl is not that useful…
  • pretty heavy and big…
  • my machine was getting stuck all the time, so I sent it back…waiting for the replacement…
  • I bake a lot and I expected it to be better with the dough…

My Reviews 

One of the best home food processors on the market, in my book at least. I’ve seen it action, and it’s almost too powerful and fast for its own good.

It is big and a bit on the heavier side, but that’s to be expected from a product that packs so much “heath”. Versatile, even more so than you might’ve thought after seeing the specifications because you can adjust how thick (thin) the slicer works (24 settings for one disc).

Very smart design.

The tube is wide enough for you to forget pre-cutting. A huge relief.

Professional quality in your kitchen. Overall Quality Rating of 4.8 stars.

It’s good to see someone still standing behind the quality of their products.

Hamilton Beach 70580 Food Processor Review – Should You Buy it or not?

If you’re not a fan of unnecessary reading, and you like to get all the information you need in as few words as possible feel free to continue reading, and I promise to deliver just that.

Hamilton Beach 70580 Food Processor Review

A little bit about me (and why you should read on)

I’ve been writing all sorts of reviews and blogs about different kitchen appliances for a very long time. I’ve also picked up a thing or two about the industry in general along the way.

I can tell the difference between a great product that will save you time and money, and the one that will just prove to be a drain on your budget without giving anything in return.

My rule of thumb is to pay the greatest of attention to what users themselves have to say about a certain product, so I read all the food processor reviews I can find before I sit down and start writing.

For the users from the users is the rules work by, and it’s the best way to confirm or negate the quality of any product in my humble opinion.

If you’re with me so far let’s review this food processor together shall we?

The outlines of my reviews

I usually start all of my reviews by providing you with some basic product info, just to see what the manufacturer says its machine is capable of doing.

I follow that up with a PROs/CONs section, using user experiences as a filter of sorts for everything the manufacturer said. That’s how we get the full picture and see if the product is worth your money or not.

In the end, I’ll say a few words and make it a final verdict when this product is concerned.

Keep it simple is my motto, and this content configuration proved to be the best option over the years. Easy to understand and right on the money.

Product Specs

By advertising a certain product, each manufacturer makes a promise to us. Let’s see what this promise holds:

  • Very wide feed tube for fitting whole foods
  • 4 and 12-cup bowls
  • Perfect for shredding, mixing, chopping, slicing, and pureeing. Featuring reversible disc for slicing and shredding
  • S-blade for chopping, touchpad controls, very easy to clean
  • Blades, lid, and bowls are dishwasher safe
  • 500W motor

That sounds like one big promise. Time to see if it holds up when filtered through what some real-life users had to say about it.

Positive User Reviews

Let’s see some of the PROs:

  • My dad bought me this food processor for my birthday and it’s absolutely amazing. It blends and chops perfectly, and I can make one hell of almond butter with it. It’s very user-friendly, and once it does all the work for me, it’s straight for the dishwasher. It’s all sparkly clean when it comes out and ready to do some slicing again. I just love it, and it was the best present ever
  • We don’t like keeping things on our kitchen counter, and this food processor is a dream for setting up and putting away considering how lightweight it is. We use it most often for meat grinding, which used to put a lot of strain on our previous processor. Not the case anymore. It grinds through all of it without any problems. The mini bowl is great when you have some smaller things to process and don’t feel like washing the main one. It’s wonderful, and we would highly recommend it. Nothing beats this kind of quality for this kind of money
  • I make one mean banana bread with this food processor. I struggled with lesser choppers way longer than I should have. I always dreaded looking into food processors, as I thought they would cost absurd amounts of money. Once I saw this one I thought it would be very low quality, being affordable as it is. Imagine my surprise once I started using it and saw how easily shreds through pretty much anything I throw in it. The motor seems very powerful, and the processor looks very well made. It also looks pretty nice on my counter
  • I started using it heavily the moment I turned it on for the first time. I remember the first thing I decided to do was to slice some veggies for your standard lettuce salad. It went through onions, peppers, tomatoes like they weren’t even there. I just peeled them, cut them in half, and it did all the rest. I got perfect slices in a matter of seconds. I minced up some chipotles in olive oil (homemade version) afterward and made a salad dressing. It was all done in just a fraction of the time it would’ve taken me to do it all by hand and without messing up my kitchen. I must admit though that I’m pretty experienced with food processors and know how to use them to their full potential. It performed beyond my expectations, and it was a great purchase
  • Very powerful product with an extremely convenient largemouth. I like the two separate bowls for different size jobs. Easy to assemble and take apart, and all of the parts are really easy to clean. Thumbs up Hamilton Beach!

Negative User Reviews

Time for some CONs:

  • Sometimes the food gets stuck inside the safety chamber that’s sealed.

My Review

We have a winner I guess if user feedback is of any relevance to you.

It is to me, so I’ll just tell you to go for this product, as it is one of the best food processors currently out there for this kind of money.

It will do all the jobs you put in front of it and more, it’s easy to handle and even easier to clean. Wide feed tube, two separate bowls, powerful motor, and a great price are the buzzwords here. Try it, it won’t disappoint you.

I hope I delivered what I promised.

Take care.

A little bit about me

I’ve been writing these reviews and all sorts of blogs concerning different house appliances for years now. I picked up all there is to know about the industry along the way and gladly share my experience with everyone willing to give me the benefit of the doubt.

I know all the good sides, but also all the pitfalls inexperienced customers often wind up in. That’s not going to happen to you if we can help it. And we certainly can.

What can you expect to see here?

Here’s how I usually go about my reviews:

  • First, we’ll take a quick look at the product specification, to get some raw materials to work with later on
  • Then we’ll see how that basic product info holds up when put against the good and bad experiences of the customers
  • Finally, I’ll share my own opinion in the end and tell you whether this food processor is worth your time and money

Simple and straightforward is the way I like it. Compact, informative, honest, and unbiased food processor reviews are my trademark.

Enough with the introduction, let’s get to some real work.

Product Specs?

We need some basic information first, so we can filter what we got here through the impressions of actual users of this food processor.

So, let’s see what the company has for us:

  • Clear plastic 1.5 cup capacity chopping jar
  • Classic red body
  • Super sharp blade made of stainless steel
  • Detachable parts, dishwasher-safe
  • Non-skid base, safety lock lid

It’s like I wrote this specification myself. Short and informative, without any marketing bits and unnecessary glorifying of the product itself.

Positive Reviews

Time to see what the customers liked when using this processor:

  • It’s very compact and does the job I need it to do. I’m buying another one for my daughter, she’s gonna love it! It’s just what my kitchen needed
  • It’s so easy to use even I did it without a problem, and let me tell you, I’m not a tech-savvy person, not by a long shot. It makes chopping veggies or making a ham salad a breeze. It’s also very lightweight and takes up little room on my kitchen counter
  • Amazing little helper in the kitchen! I use it to chop almost anything, carrots, eggs, celery, you name it. It’s very small in size and very handy. My mother with arthritis simply loves it since it saves her so much trouble
  • I like how it won’t turn on unless it’s locked. It makes me feel so much safer than with my previous food chopping thingy. It takes very little cupboard or counter space and it makes one mean guacamole
  • I have a huge food processor I paid a fortune for. I ended up using this little guy like 90% of the time. It’s great for small jobs and saves you from hauling your enormous food processor to chop some veggies. It saves me so much time and I recommend it to everyone
  • I bought this tiny chopper to puree cat food for my cat that has trouble swallowing. I don’t know how it processes anything else since I never used it for it, but for what I needed, it’s amazing. It purees 2 cans of cat food at once and without any problem. It seems surprisingly powerful for its size and it’s very easy to use and clean
  • Great little device for processing small quantities of veggies for salads or cooked dishes. The blades are extremely sharp, and it’s very easy to clean after use. It performs very well, and the price is just right. My Cuisinart is gathering dust in the cupboard ever since I got this handy little chopper. I can see how its size could be a limiting factor with preparing larger amounts of food, but there’s just two of us and it fits our needs perfectly
  • Red is my favorite color and the predominant color in my kitchen. That was the general reason I bought this chopper, that and its compact size. I didn’t expect much for that kind of money, but I must admit that its quality and performance took me by surprise. It’s the best food processor I could get and my kitchen agrees with me

Seems the users loved it. But there’s another side to this story we should check out.

Negative User Impressions

We’ve gone through the PROs, let’s delve into the CONs:

  • It’s very small, so you’ll have to cut some larger vegetables for them to fit the operating cup. Other than that, it’s a great little product and works perfectly
  • I only wished it was a tad bigger. Then I could simply forget about my huge food processor and use this one all the time

My Opinion

This product is a great addition to any kitchen. It’s easy to use and clean, doesn’t hog your entire kitchen counter, performs flawlessly, and the price is more than affordable. Not to mention how safe it is.

Not the best of them, not the worst of them, but if I had to say one thing it would be that it is worth the price and that means something coming from me, especially to those of you who know how much I dislike side-mounted motors.

KitchenAid KFP1333CU Review

  • Silver finish featuring work bowl that’s BPA – free
  • Special mini bowl (with lid) on top of the main one
  • The slicing disc is adjustable
  • 3 different power settings
  • 11.8 inches long, 10.8 wide, and 16.6 high

Now we have some raw material to work with and filter it through all those things users had to say after putting it to the test. So, let’s do it.

Positive User Reviews

This is what we would usually call the PROs section. So, time to see the bright side of this food processor:

  • I just love this kitchen machine! It very user-friendly and no trouble to clean. The motor is super strong, and I’m always looking for new stuff to shred, chop, or grate. It’s so much better than my old Cuisinart food processor, and I recommend it to everyone
  • It’s a high-quality product, and a great addition to my kitchen machinery. Very easy to operate and the cup is just the perfect size. I also like the mini bowl a lot, since it takes care of the smaller tasks without having to use the main one. I use it almost daily for all kinds of jobs, and it chops everything without any hesitation. I’m very happy with this buy, especially since I got a pretty neat discount. Well worth the money invested
  • This food processor has been a great hit for my family. It does everything I need it to without any problems, and I like how easy it is to change its settings. I especially enjoy the option of adjusting the thickness of the slices. No problems whatsoever setting it up, and the cleaning is very easy too, just rinse it out with some soapy water ad you’re good to go. My family and I are very satisfied with this product and if you’re looking for a high-quality food processor you can give this one a go without a second thought
  • It serves me great for making hummus. I also tend to make my own coconut butter and almond milk, and this little guy saves me a lot of time and trouble. It’s very powerful, so it does everything without any trouble, and I don’t need to spend ages cleaning it afterward. And you can change the cut size by simply turning the dial, which is a great option in my opinion. I would definitely buy this product all over again, and you should too
  • The instruction manual was very easy to understand, and the initial assembly went without a hitch. The instructions for all additional attachments were very comprehensive, and I had no problems getting it to work. It contains my knife set, blender, and mixer all in one, and I couldn’t be happier with it
  • I do a lot of cooking, and it took me forever to chop all the ingredients by hand. This food processor is a godsend. It saves me time, it’s easy to use, and it chops everything much better and more evenly than I ever could. I’m just no match for this machine. On top of being very useful and well made, it’s also very stylishly designed, so it looks amazing on my countertop

Negative User Reviews

We’ve heard the PROs, so let’s complete the story with some CONs:

  • I just didn’t think it would be this big. When I got it, I realized it was way too much for my kitchen. It’s pretty useful though, and it looks awesome. I use it and have no other complaints, but be sure to check the size before ordering
  • It took me some time to set it up. I’m not tech-savvy at all, and it takes me a bunch of time to get something to work properly once I buy it. After a while of fiddling around with it, I finally got all the pieces together, and I’m really happy with it
  • The bowl cracked after just a few uses.

My Review

It is my sincere estimate that you can find a better food processor for the price.
