This Black & Decker food processor offers 2 speeds plus pulse to help you make the perfect meal. Chopping blade also mixes and minces, while reversible disk slices and shreds. Includes large 8-cup bowl. Parts are removable and are top-rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. No. FP1400. Imported. 12Hx8Wx12D".
With an 8-cup work bowl and a built-in continuous-flow chute for slicing or shredding foods like cabbage into a separate bowl, this 350-watt food processor is versatile as well as inexpensive. It's great for a small household or an occasional cook who wants the convenience of food processing but doesn't need a big, powerful machine. With its stainless-steel chopping blade and reversible slicing/shredding disc, the processor does everything its more powerful counterparts do: slices, shreds, chops, mixes, and minces. It has two speeds and a pulse control, and all removable parts are dishwasher-safe. To the top of its feed tube, the processor measures 13 inches high, and it's 9 inches wide, including the work bowl's handle, and 16 inches deep, including the continuous-flow chute on top the work bowl. The processor comes with a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

As elsewhere noted the bowl is of extremely thin plastic. I'm currently throwing mine away and replacing it after 10 years (with a KitchenAid KFP750 currently on sale for $119 (in black) or about 3x the price of this unit) the ring on the bottom that prevents the motor from running when the bowl isn't in place broke after about 2 years, but I overrode the interrupt and it continued to work. What finally caused me to break down and throw it out is that the retainer for the piece of plastic that mostly blocks the discharge chute finally broke off (I had been washing the top by hand) and now it throws everything all over my counter. I should note I keep this under my counter and only use it for huge jobs (slicing 15 tomatoes for a lasagna, shredding a few pounds of cheese, crumbing a whole package of oreos or graham crackers for a pie crust) so it gets heavy usage when it gets used, but that's only 3-4 times a year. Which means the bottom fell apart after only about 10 uses/washes.
But, with all of those negatives, this is a $30 food processor. I expect more from my new $180 (normal price) KitchenAid but this is a quarter the price of that if you wait for a fantastic sale or a sixth the price if you pay normal prices. So if you occasionally bring out your food processor, you're not a perfectionist, you're careful with the bowls (I would recommend against machine wash, and definitely not bottom rack (even though that might be the only place it fits)), and you don't mind it only lasting a few years, then this might be great for you. If you want something better, be prepared to pay for it.
Loud? YES. I will definately agree that it's loud. But I don't care. It's a food processor. I don't generally run it for more than a few minutes at one time, so considering its price it doesn't matter to me.
Durability? I've had no issues with the motor at all. It's never showed a sign of lagging or failing, thankfully. The 8 cup container is plastic. I am sure it would shatter if you really bashed it into something, but it's held up fine for me and I throw the lid and bowl and all accessories into my top rack dishwasher when I'm done with it. (goes along with that lazy habit)
My only criticism of this unit is the shield for tossing out sliced veggies (if you are using the slicer disc). When I'm chopping using the standard rotary blade, and I have the shield in place, the shield can leak if I have too much of a liquidy mixture in the bowl. Since I make a lot of salsa, if I have too much salsa in the bowl and I turn this baby up to high, I'm gonna get some leakage. But, this is pretty much a user error. I believe the instruction book says don't fill your bowl more than 2/3 of the way up :-)
Good quality, more than worth the price. If you are not sure if you'll use a food processor enough to spend a ton of money on one this is a great way to find out.
UPDATE: I FINALLY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM - WASN'T GONNA LET A MERE FOOD PROCESSOR GET THE BETTER OF ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The problem was that there is a little (tiny) piece of plastic which when inserted in the teeny tiny slot above the chute (barely visable), diffuses the food directly into the main body of the processor. The instructions are rather vague, thus the dilemma and MESS. The resulting processed items were not uniformly cut but nonetheless, they were processed. I wouldn't recommend this if you absolutely have to have perfectly sliced foods. Then I would recommend the Cuisinart above all - even though it's very heavy it does a fabulous job with EVERYTHING.
