That said, this thing is a real workhorse. We use it primarily for shredding cheese, usually full pounds of mozzarella at a time but sometimes harder cheeses, and it does so beautifully. We've used it to shred some other things and it's done fine, but I think it's safe to say that the real test of any processor is cheese and I can tell you unequivocally this processor shreds cheese with no problem. If anybody has an issue with parts breaking I can only guess maybe they're forcing it? Any time you're using a power tool, whether it's a food processor, table saw, or weed whacker, you have to let it do the work. If you force it, it will break. If you want to shred a pound of cheese in 10 seconds go look at $200 processors. If you just don't want to have to do it all by hand, this thing is great.
This processor's lid, chute, etc all fit together much more easily than similar processors by other brands I've used. I don't have to slam anything into place to disarm the safety shut-offs. It just works as it ought to.
I also like the extra large chute, and ability to safely/easily add things to the chute and (gently) tamp them down without creating a mess by opening the top.
The slicing disks are extremely effective too.Read more ›
Was a little nervous to try anything too "heavy" on it, so my first use was just chopping vegies and cheese for a meatloaf, it did great and saved me a ton of time in preperation.
second use I used it to slice mushrooms and onions with the slicer attachment, again, saved me a ton of time and tears (no more hand chopping onions!)
third use! I finally had the guts to make bread dough in it, it worked great, even while it was "kneading" the heavy, sticky dough for 1 minute it didn't get too hot or slow down!
The safety features are... well... they certainly just ARE.
So, I'd definitely say this is a good machine, just fine for basic food prep. Perhaps not the most beautiful appliance, but food processors rarely are that attractive.
EDIT: after many uses the motor died while making bread, using the bread recipe provided in the owners manual. I believe the method they use to mix the dough is what caused it to go, instead of slowly adding the liquid next time I will probably just dump in all the liquid at once, and then allow it to run until it forms a ball. Anyway, I contacted customer service explaining how it went sluggish for a few seconds and then stopped in a puff of white smoke, never to run again. (website is in owner manual) Within a couple of days they contacted me saying the machine probably had a factory defect and was covered by the 1 year warranty, they automatically submitted a replacement order for me. All I had to do was send them the plug, my name, address and reason of "return" and the order confirmation number provided in their email, plus a check for $7.50 to cover shipping.Read more ›
UPDATE 5/10/11: Not even into 6 months, the Post/Bowl Coupling that the blade attaches to has cracked. This appliance is not an every day user so the this part should not have broken. To replace it, I would be out about twenty-three bucks. I am going to pull the paperwork and see if it is still under warrantee. So, I have dropped the 5 stars to a one. I will update again when I contact the company.
FINAL UPDATE 5/17/11: When reading reviews, if someone must contact the customer service department due to issues, I take that review (bad or good) over any other review. I was not happy that I need to replace the part, and not too happy that it is on back order. But, welcome to the days where our purchases are made in other contries. I was very please with B&D's customer service. I did not have to prove that the damage was not my fault. I do not like having to contact costomer service, but if I do, I want it to be a positive interaction. I am putting this FP back to 5 stars. Customer Service gets an A+ and the product does a great job. I have, and will continue to buy their products. Thanks Rob! -- One of the 2 out of 2 that liked my review was when I gave the product a one star. Thanks for your time.
1 - 500 watt motor is more powerful than most other food processors
2 - Two speeds allows a little more precision during use
3 - Suction cup feet hold it pretty steady even when chopping a lot of veggies
4 - Comes with a dough kneading blade
5 - No louder than my little 3 cup chopper when running
6 - Has a wide mouth chute (see cons below)
7 - Large capacity (10 cups)
1 - No convenient way to store the cutting disc or blade when not in use. Both won't fit in the bowl during storage. The B&D FP2500S model comes with the storage lid. Or you can order it for $9.95 (part # - 07239GZ4)
2 - Goofy feeder chute only allows you to continually feed food into the small chute. In order to use the wide mouth chute, the chute must be removed, stopping the machine.
3 - Like most other Food processors, will only hold about 3 cups of liquid before it runs over to top of the shaft and leaks out the bottom. This is common with most brands and this model is no different.
4 - Having to lock the bowl on the base, the lid on the bowl, and the chute on the lid before the thing will run; is a pain. I understand the B&D is trying to make sure no one gets hurt using this thing but...geezz.
I own several higher end appliances from Kitchen Aid and Cuisinart. No one is going to mistake this food processor for one from either of those two companies. That being said, at $60 bucks it is one third the cost of a comparable sized Kitchen Aid unit.
I have owned this unit for a couple of weeks and have used it on about a dozen different chores. Overall it performs very well. It shreds cheese easily assuming the cheese is cold. I have used it to chop nuts and make bread crumbs. And it shreds carrots well.Read more ›
