Unpacking: After opening the box, the only easy manner in which the product can be removed is by grabbing the handle of the plastic bowl and lifting the entire bowl and base from the packaging. The instructions state that moving by the handle is not the preferred method of handling. It would be easy and cheap for the maker to include a simple hammock like string (like a turkey lifter) which would facilitate removal without using the bowl handle.
The instructions for assembling the bowl and base are quite good. Disassembly is less clear, and the product is delivered with the bowl assembled. I did not read far enough in the instruction manual to discover that the top lid had to be rotated in order to allow the large bowl to be rotated and removed. A clear instruction there would have been helpful.
The machine is designed to use a "mini-bowl" for small jobs. In theory, this is a useful option; however, there is an important trade-off. The cylinder of the larger bowl, which fits over the drive shaft, has to be quite short in order to accommodate the mini-bowl. This short neck results in a very small liquid capacity for the larger bowl, approximately two cups. Three small tomatoes when chopped in the larger bowl will overflow the short neck-- so making more than a small amount of salsa, for example, is a problem. Centrifugal force keeps some liquid out of the neck, but once the machine is turned off, liquid can and most often will seep over the neck and down onto the base. It's a relatively minor clean up job, but still annoying. The mini-bowl cannot use the disc blades, only the chopping blade. I am not going to return the item because of the neck issue, but I would not purchase this particular design again. If there were an optional bowl which I could purchase which did not accommodate the mini-bowl and which had a higher neck, I would purchase that as an accessory.
The top lid of the bowl covers and fits over the outside. It's best to turn over the lid when removing as some liquid can be caught in the top, but I've never had a problem with doing this, and the small lip ensures that nothing drops from the top as it goes to the sink to be cleaned up.
Cleanup is easy, as all removable parts are dishwasher safe. I've chopped carrots and other vegies and have no problem with the bowl staining or otherwise discoloring, but using the bowl as a storage vessel might result in a different outcome.
I like the quite operation, apparent strength, and bulk of the machine. With a different bowl, or even the option of a 2nd large bowl, I would be a much more satisfied customer.
This processor is quite different. It will sprint through whatever processing tasks you give it and then ask for more with a slightly over-confident smirk. It is heavy duty yet suprisingly quiet during operation. Which reminds me..... your $40 food processor probably sounds like a screaming banshee and scares the neighbor's dog. It is easy to take apart and reassembles just as easily. It is sturdy enough to withstand dropping from kitchen counter height but I would never suggest dropping such a fine piece. Food enthusiasts and chefs alike should be proud to include this processor amongst their cooking tools. I most certainly am.
Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks!!
