I never write review for products , but i think i should write this because it will be really helpful .Before buying this FP i searched internet for a while but all the reviews i could find was these 3 reviews in amazon . I had a 3 cup cusinart fp , but it was very small for my family of 4 and there were not much accessory options , so i decided to upgrade .
* The first thing i found about this fp is power , its really very less . if u have used any other fp like cuisinart u will definetly feel that . Since there is less power u need to give more pressure on the food .
* The wide mouth is not actually wide enough to fit a whole cucumber( the english , thin long cucumber may fit ).The mouth is curved in the inner side .
when i tried to slice using 4 mm blade , i learnt it was multi functional , i got shaved , 2 mm and 4 mm cut in single side :( , while grating carrots the same minced , 4 mm grated and big chunks left on the blade , let me be honest my 3 cup cusinart was a breeze compared to this. I need to mention this , my frech beans , got sliced , cross cut and minced all together , i have spent more time to separate them than it would take to normally cut them withh knife and board.
* with so less power the dough blade just kept running with dough still in one place for abt a long time , then i finally tokk it out and kneaded them with hands.
* there are lots of grooves and surface is not easy to clean , the slicing and grating disc has 2 holes to handle then , small food particles fall through them and separating them from processed food is one heck of a work .
* the one good thing abt this food processor is the storage bowl , to keep all the accesorys in place .
* oops i forgot to mention abt the shaft ,the disc gets locked into the shaft quite nice , its good and also after use its completely interloacked that the disc couldnt be removed from the shaft , it took me forever to take it out .
This is not a low priced food processor and i would like to have something nice for what i pay . I dont recommend this at all .
