Weak motor, poor design, broke within 12 months....
on April 9, 2015
Total junk, complicated to use, and broke within 12 months of light use. The select a slice is worthless, the motor is very weak, and the motor takes a 5-10 seconds to get up to speed versus the Cuisinart that starts virtually instantly. While I'm an engineer by trade, the pieces are very complicated, way more than is necessary for this type of equipment, leading to the premature breakage (too many pieces something is bound to break). The last straw was when the select a slice "feature" completely broke, the disk is very wobbly now, so that all slices are at least 3/8" thick or more.
The only thing I liked about this is the capacity. So I went out today and purchased a Cuisinart to replace it. This unit is simply not worth replacing, because it was bad from the start.
