Positive Reviews

  • I was looking for a smaller food processor that is still powerful enough to fit all my needs. I’m really happy with this product…
  • It chops up potatoes in seconds. It also grates cheese quickly and efficiently…
  • This thing is really easy to clean and store. I just love how the whole process of making baby food, cleaning, and storing this product takes only minutes out of my day…
  • This is a really handy machine and just the perfect size. 8-cups capacity is perfect for larger batches, when we have friends over, or even when we cook for just the two of us.
  • The lower blade really chops everything you put in it. There are no unprocessed chunks of food left that I have to chase with my fingers.
  • The motor is wickedly strong, yet so quiet. So much better than my blender at making baby food and salsa.
  • It’s really easy to fix on your counter because of these rubber feet it has. It doesn’t move around the counter when it’s on. I ordered another one to give as a gift to my best friend.
  • You definitely can’t beat this quality at this price. It’s just so inexpensive for a food processor of this size and quality. We’ve been using it daily for a little over a year now, and we couldn’t be more satisfied.
  • I love how I can now slice, chop and dice all of the vegetables I need for my all-time favorite dish in seconds…
  • I just pop in some carrots, cabbage, and onions, and they are evenly cut and wok ready…
  • There is absolutely no sliding around the kitchen counter when you’re using it, and it’s really user-friendly. It’s really easy to clean as well…
  • Saves me so much time in the kitchen on the whole food prep/clean-up business. I really don’t know how I used to manage to chop everything by hand.
  • This product is really well-made and looks sturdy and like it’s going to last me a long time. Totally worth every penny…
  • It has the most important features I require from a food processor: it has the pulse option, and it’s easy to clean. I just rinse it with hot water and I’m done…
  • Great at anything I’ve tried to chop so far with it, even the “harder” food like carrots, potatoes, cheese…
  • It doesn’t leave uneven chunks, but neat little pieces I can easily cook. Great buy…
  • I’m totally going to go on more ventures and try out more recipes now that there is no more pre-cutting or doing anything by hand.

Negative Reviews

  • It has a square feed tube, and I find that awkward since, for example, cucumbers are round like most vegetables. Doesn’t make much sense and it’s not really practical.
  • Recently after making a purchase, I broke the shredder blade, and when I looked into the warranty a little bit closer it said I had to cover the shipping expenses for it…not cool…
  • I was really hoping it would arrive with more options…
  • Our food processor stopped working this morning after only a few months of use. We are currently waiting for a replacement.

My Review

After many hours of close and careful examination of this product, and reading through every user review, I have concluded this product, and I can assure you that I went into “Quality Assurance Manager” mode that I was used to for so long.

It is definitely a neat addition to any kitchen that will make your life a little bit easier, but most importantly- it’s a high-quality product at an affordable price.

The square-shaped feeding tube is designed to fit customers’ needs.

However, if you’re on a budget, this is a solid choice.
