Braun Food Processor FP3020 Ultra Quiet 12 Cup Full Review

braun food processor review
braun food processor review

I’ve worked as a Quality Assurance Manager for a little over 10 years in a factory of small appliances, and I can definitely say I’ve got the right stuff when it comes to picking the very best units.

But before we go any further into this matter, let’s see how this review will look:

  1. We’ll list all of the product specifications
  2. Then we’ll list both positive and negative end-user reviews
  3. In conclusion, I will give this product my final grade

See more pictures and compare prices at Amazon.com

Let’s begin with the product specifications:

  • 600-watt powerful motors
  • Electronically controlled- has variable speed options
  • Sealed bowls prevent leakage
  • For USA(110V) use only
  • Complete control over the food preparation process

Well, it doesn’t look bad so far. But let’s see how the real end-users feel about this product.

Positive reviews as per end-users – the PROs:

  • I’ve owned this food processor for about 7 years, and I ended up giving the same model to my sister as a birthday present. So far, none of us has any complaints.
  • Simply the best food processor I’ve had so far, and I went through my fair share of those looking for the one.. It saves me so much time and trouble on daily basis…
  • I loved the simplicity…how I can use all the blades and speed variations and the juicer. I had no idea it had so many features, I totally enjoy exploring them..
  • The multi-speed options make my job so much easier. Such a great buy…
  • The first time I ran it on the highest speed setting (14) I expected it to be really loud, but it actually surprised me. If I weren’t the one to turn it on, I probably wouldn’t even know it’s working…
  • Cleans up is a breeze, and the speed controls are right there on the front of the machine and easy to use. I just rinse the bowl with some hot water, and we can go for another round..
  • It’s not really tall so it’s super easy to store. To be honest, with all of the different blades and options, I don’t put it away much anymore, but still, it’s nice to know it’s light enough for me to do it on my own.
  • It works great on cheese, dough, smoothies, herbs, nuts.. It simply does what it says it will do, and then it just amazes you with its speed and versatility.
  • Removing, cleaning, or removing the lid off of the work bowl is just so much simpler with this Braun compared to my old food processor. I’m really happy with it…
  • It’s designed so well and it’s so sturdy that I can literally use it with one hand. Such a great and powerful machine.. I would definitely recommend it
  • So far I’ve used this product for salsa, hummus, baby food, smoothies, drinks, vegetables, fruit, nuts.. It dices, slices, chops, you name it. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.
  • Everything comes together and apart so easily, and the storing is really easy because this Braun is not too tall or heavy. It gives me so many options that I’m not even sure if I’m going to need them all..
  • It’s super light, and the bowl and the lid simply snap together. It’s just so easy to use. The bowl is just the right size for a perfect batch of any food…
  • check out this offer – amazon

Negative end-user reviews:

  • It only lasted for 2.5 years and then it just stopped working. I’m currently waiting for a replacement.
  • Sometimes it vibrates too much if I leave it on for 5 minutes or so on higher speed settings.
  • My previous Braun had a better cutting shield for the blade.
  • I personally believe that a coarse slicer should be a must in every kitchen, and it didn’t come with my Braun.. Plus, it’s not very clear if it comes with a coarse shredder or a coarse grater. The answer is a shredder.

My final verdict for this product:

After putting a lot of thought into this and double-checking all the facts and user reviews, I’ve come to a final grade for this product. But first, let’s do a short recap.

This is a great and versatile food processor that gives you many options and comes with loads of attachments. That is obviously a plus. But I couldn’t help but notice, as an ex Quality Assurance Manager, that it could happen that when you order this product, maybe you get some of the additional attachments and not the basic ones. If this happens, simply contact Braun customer service and have the attachment in question replaced.

If you’re looking for a powerful kitchen machine with countless features, look no further.

Cuisinart-DLC-2009CHB-Prep-9-9-Cup-Food-Processor (3)

Review of Cuisinart DLC-8SY Food Processor (11 cup, Stainless Steel)

Cuisinart DLC-2009CHB Prep 9 9-Cup Food Processor

And why should you trust me, you might wonder, right?

I worked as a Quality Assurance Manager in a home appliances factory for years before I decided that corporate life just isn’t for me and I’ve been doing these reviews and running this website ever since. I hope that covers the trust area 🙂

Here’s what I’ll do in this review:

  1. Objectively analyze specifications of the product
  2. Take into consideration users reviews, both positive and negative
  3. Try to summarize all of my impressions and give the final judgment of this product

See more pictures and customer ratings here on amazon.

So, let us begin!

Specifications – the fact sheet:

  1. This product is not only safe to use in the dishwasher, but the lexan work bowl is basically unbreakable
  2. In order to guarantee the correct dough consistency the processor adjusts the speed automatically
  3. All the parts are safe to wash in your dishwasher , and it also comes with a complete how-to DVD, a spatula, and booklet with recipes and instructions
  4. The wide Supreme tube can hold whole fruit and vegetables
  5. The processor is up to Electrical Standards of North America

Pros of this product according to end users:

 

  • It looks smooth and is very easy to clean! It looks so good in my kitchen…it seems to be the last food processor I’ll ever need!
  •  Now I can make home-made food for my baby-without waking her up…My last food processor made her scream, and she cannot even notice when this one is on…
  • It is a very tough and slick utensil, attractive and rather quiet. Since I cook every night, this will help me chop up stuff super fast at any time of the night…
  • I’ve owned my fair share of kitchen utensils, and most of them broke really fast or didn’t to a really good job while they were still functioning properly, but not with this one…this processor makes baking, food preparation and cooking a walk in the park…
  • I used this food processor for making ice cream, and I can tell you that you do not need that $50 device. I used fruit ONLY and it came out all fine and creamy. It does wonders with nuts too, unlike my last food processor.
  • It can even be used for making your own seed or nut flour. I can’t wait to see what else this baby can do…
  • It cut down my prep time in half…I use it daily and it’s so easy to store and even easier to clean…
  • This food processor arrived in great shape and on time. It is fast and efficient, and it comes apart in seconds for easy cleaning. The pieces are always neatly and evenly cut…
  • you can buy it online at amazon and have it with you in a couple of days.

Cons of this product according to end users:

  • The instruction manual is not as clear as it should be, and I’m the type of guy that doesn’t like to read or watch through detailed instructions, so I almost broke it when I first tried it out…
  • This was my first food processor in years, so I needed some time to figure it all out and get used to it…
  • I’m not happy to give any Cuisinart product such a low rating since I enjoyed them so far, but the motor is either too strong or I am just doing something wrong..
  • It is very sturdy but too heavy for me to move around, so I can just keep it on my kitchen counter.

My food processor review resume:

Cuisinart DLC-2009CHB Prep 9 9-Cup Best Food ProcessorSo, we’ve arrived at the very end of our short journey, and it is time to rate this machine, and help you decide will this be that last element that will make your kitchen feel like home!

First of all, the design is very smooth and minimal, so it will fit into nearly every kitchen, and you won’t even notice when it’s on. Not for those who like colorful and custom-made appliances.

It gravitates toward heavy machinery, but it’s still practical, easy to clean, assemble and use, yet it packs a very powerful motor under that slick exterior, which is surprisingly very quiet. So, this is one beast that actually purrs, rather than roars!

The company also offers a 10-year motor warranty and a 3-year food processor warranty, and so far there have been only words of praise on the punctuality and efficiency of the customer service representatives, even when a problem did occur.

Deciding whether this is the best food processor for your needs is up to you, but overall, this product offers great value for money.

mini-prep plus cuisinart food processor review

Review of Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Processor 4-Cup – It’s like having extra hands in the kitchen

mini-prep plus cuisinart food processor review
mini-prep plus Cuisinart food processor review

People are usually confused when it comes to buying additional attachments for a food processor that works just fine unless it’s for spare parts. Many people fail to grasp that by purchasing these, they will actually be upgrading an already existing unit that will start serving more than one purpose.

But before we get really deep into the subject, let’s see how this review will work:

  1. We’ll list and consider all of the food processor specifications and features
  2. We’ll take a look at customer reviews, both positive and negative
  3. I’ll give this product our final rating

Go to Amazon and read the latest customer ratings

List of specifications of this 3-cup Cuisinart food processor:

  • This duo attachment set fits specifically the SmartPower blender Model Cuisinart SPB-7
  • Includes pusher, feed tube, bowl, shredding disk, chopping blade.
  • 3-cup capacity
  • The top rack is completely dishwasher-safe
  • 3-year warranty(limited)

Positive end-user reviews:

  • I’m really satisfied with these food processor attachments. I now make home-made pies, dips, pesto, and cookie dough all the time…
  • The attachments arrived on time and in good condition. The parts look like they’ve been made out of good quality plastic. It’s really light and easy to use…
  • It fits perfectly on my blender and just gives me soooo many options at such a small cost. I love it. I now cook up to 3 times per week since it cut my prep time in half…
  • These food processor attachments save up so much space on my kitchen counter because you just need to attach it to your blender, and you get great results and actually have two kitchen appliances at a significantly lower price..
  • I bought this as a replacement for parts for my Cuisinart food processor and it saved me so much trouble and money because I didn’t have to buy a new one. Doesn’t take up much cupboard space either.
  • It’s great because it saves up so much of your time.. I used to get my knuckles bloody by the time I’d be done with 2-3 pounds of hard cheese, and now it’s grated in seconds. It also does a wonderful job on vegetables, seeds, nuts, dough, hummus, pesto, you name it.
  • Got delivered on time. No issues, no problems, no complaints so far…
  • It cut my prep time almost in half, and I’m quite satisfied with this product. I think it would also make a great gift.
  • I bought this one as a replacement for the parts my husband dropped by accident. They’ve been great so far, and I guess they’ll work until he drops them again 🙂
  • I’ve purchased this product recently after living without a food processor for almost a year after my old one died on me. I’m so happy I’m once again motivated to cook home-made meals because the prep time is significantly shorter now. No more junk food for me, no sir…
  • Fast shipment, arrived in good shape. It would’ve been so difficult to find parts for my old unit, and like this, I just replaced the whole thing because the motor was intact. Great design, well-built, and most importantly, parts are really easy to clean…
  • The blades are super sharp and they do a great job, both mixing and pureeing my meals. Great for chopping and mixing. I’m so glad I found it; I didn’t want to go through so much trouble of finding a completely new food processor. Now I’ve just upgraded my old Cuisinart…
  • Great that I didn’t have to buy a whole new food processor, but just attach new parts to my blender. Such an innovative and inexpensive solution…
  • Does a great job on tricky food like various nuts and herbs, great for vegetables and dough….
  • I would definitely recommend it as an inexpensive, practical, and easy solution. Now I make much more fresh and healthy food because I don’t have to cut vegetables by hand.
  • check out the amazon price

Now for the negative user reviews:

  • A word to the wise: be very careful when washing the blades. They are very sharp. I learned this the hard way…
  • One of the attachments arrived broken. I was contacted shortly after demanding a replacement, and it got delivered as fast as the first time…
  • They just didn’t fit my old blender…

And now for my final resume of this product:

First, I tip my hat to people from Cuisinart for making these attachments and selling them separately. They really are an inexpensive solution to not having a food processor, especially if you already have a blender. They are also great for spare parts and are much cheaper in comparison.

As a person who worked as a Quality Assurance Manager for so long, I’m really glad to see that there are high-quality attachments/spare parts available at a fraction of the cost

Just be careful when washing the blades by hand. I recommend you pop them in the dishwasher.

Hamilton Beach 70740 8-Cup Food Processor

Small But Powerful, The Hamilton Beach 70740 Food Processor Is A Big Help In The Kitchen – Review and Customer Ratings

Hamilton Beach 70740 8-Cup Food Processor

As an ex Quality Assurance Manager of 10 years in a small fabric of kitchen appliances, I can claim that I truly know the industry and all the fine mechanisms that keep it going. That’s why I decided to write this review, and hopefully get you one step closer to finding the best food processor for your home.

But first, let’s see how we’ll organize this thing:

  1. We’ll list all of the product specifications
  2. Then we’ll take a closer look at all of the positive and negative end user reviews
  3. At the very end, I’ll rate this product and determine if it’s worth your money or not

Proceed to amazon.com for the latest customer feedback.

Let’s start with the product specifications:

  • A much better solution than chopping food by hand
  • You can easily and quickly chop onions, shred cabbage, mix sauces, slice salad ingredients, prepare pesto or grate cheese
  • 2 speeds and pulse control
  • Stainless steel shred and slice discs and a chopping blade included
  • 450-watt powerful motor

Now for the positive end user reviews:

  • I was looking for a smaller food processor that is still powerful enough to fit all my needs. I’m really happy with this product…
  • It chops up potatoes in seconds. It also grates cheese quickly and efficiently…
  • This thing is really easy to clean and store. I just love how the whole process of making baby food, cleaning and storing this product takes only minutes out of my day…
  • This is a really handy machine, and just the perfect size. 8-cups capacity is perfect for larger batches, when we have friends over, or even when we cook for just the two of us.
  • The lower blade really chops everything you put in it. There are no unprocessed chunks of food left that I have to chase with my fingers.
  • The motor is wickedly strong, yet so quiet. So much better than my blender at making baby food and salsa.
  • It’s really easy to fix on your counter because of these rubber feet it has. It doesn’t move around the counter when it’s on. I ordered another one to give as a gift to my best friend.
  • You definitely can’t beat this quality at this price. It’s just so inexpensive for a food processor of this size and quality. We’ve been using it daily for little over a year now, and we couldn’t be more satisfied.
  • I love how I can now slice, chop and dice all of the vegetables I need for my all-time favorite dish in seconds…
  • I just pop in some carrots, cabbage and onions, and they are evenly cut and wok ready…
  • There is absolutely no sliding around the kitchen counter when you’re using it, and it’s really user-friendly. It’s really easy to clean as well…
  • Saves me so much time in the kitchen on the whole food prep/clean up business. I really don’t know how I used to manage to chop everything by hand..
  • This product is really well-made and looks sturdy and like it’s going to last me a long time. Totally worth every penny…
  • It has the most important features I require from a food processor: it has the pulse option, and it’s easy to clean. I just rinse it with hot water and I’m done…
  • Great at anything I’ve tried to chop so far with it, even the “harder” food like carrots, potatoes, cheese…
  • It doesn’t leave uneven chunks, but neat little pieces I can easily cook. Great buy…
  • I’m totally going to go on more ventures and try out more recipes now that there is no more pre-cutting or doing anything by hand..
  • buy online at amazon and get a good offer

Now for the negative food processor reviews of the users – the CONs:

  • It has a square feed tube, and I find that awkward since, for example, cucumbers are round like most of the vegetables. Doesn’t make much sense and it’s not really practical.
  • Recently after making a purchase I broke the shredder blade, and when I looked into the warranty a little bit closer it said I had to cover the shipping expenses for it…not cool…
  • I was really hoping it would arrive with more options
  • Our food processor stopped working this morning after only few months of use. We are currently waiting for a replacement.

Now for my final review of this food processor:

Hamilton Beach 70740 8-Cup Food Processor reviewAfter many hours of close and careful examination of this product, and reading through every user review, I have reached a conclusion regarding this product, and I can assure you that I went into “Quality Assurance Manager” mode that I was used to for so long.

It is definitely a neat addition to any kitchen that will make your life a little bit easier, but most importantly- it’s a high-quality product at an affordable price.

The square-shaped feeding tube is designed to fit customers’ needs.

However, if you’re on a budget, this is solid choice.

 

 

 

 

Black Decker FP1600B 8-Cup Food Processor

Black & Decker FP1600B 8-Cup Food Processor Review – An Inexpensive And Efficient Solution

Black Decker FP1600B 8-Cup Food Processor review

Having said that (gosh I hate saying “having said that”), I have to say that, today, it’s more difficult to separate true quality from a waste of money.

I don’t like repeating myself, but I have to mention this part in most of my reviews these days – the overseas outsourcing.

Outsourcing is not bad per se – but there are good practices, and then there’s bad outsourcing. I know the exact locations that will keep the quality of the products, and I know the ones that might mess it up.

See more customer ratings on Amazon.

To simplify, nowadays I stick with these simple rules:

  1. I review products that are made in North America and Western Europe
  2. If I learn about somebody outsourcing, I only review product that are outsourced to locations that I know will keep the quality level
  3. I remove products that are outsourced to locations that might not maintain the quality

What does this mean for you?

It means that if you see a product on my website, the reviews for it are pure substance and still stand – so you can only see top notch stuff here.

Now that we got that out of the way, let me tell you how is this review going to work:

  1. We’ll list the specifications
  2. We’ll take a nice long look at what the fresh customer reviews are saying – both PROs and CONs
  3. I’ll do my best to explain what everything said means (in my resume)

The specifications of Black & Decker FP1600B:

  • powerful 450 W motor
  • designed for versatility…slicing, grating, mincing, chopping…
  • interlock design for extra safety
  • features a convenient cord storage
  • safe for use in a dishwasher…
  • steel chopping blade and shredding& slicing disc (reversible)
  • size: 11-2/7 x 7-4/5 x 15-2/3 “
  • 8 cups volume
  • It can sound like a lot of confusing terms before we see what the actual owners are saying. Let’s tend to that:

Pros

– the positive things the users had to say about the processor:

Black Decker FP1600B 8-Cup best Food Processor

  • nice wide tube, it’s great when you don’t have to pre-cut everything…
  • I bought this on a sale for a ridiculous price and didn’t expect much, maybe that’s why I’m so impressed by how good this BD is…this is my first review on Amazon, but I had to share…
  • I use it to make meals for my 6 dogs. Meat, fruits, vegetables, you name it…zero issues…
  • It sturdier than I thought by looking at the picture…
  • For the power it packs, it’s strangely cheap…
  • I am updating this review after 2 years of use…this thing works like a champ, just as good and fast as the day it arrived…
  • Great price….
  • Looks cute, it’s a central piece in my kitchen…
  • I was hesitant after reading some of the negative reviews. But now, I am so relieved that I jumped in and bought it, especially after struggling with those manual salad choppers that would brake within weeks, months at best…
  • One of my better investments this year, it spares so much time…
  • The cleaning is super easy, because even the part where the blades sit is detachable…
  • So cheap for the use I get out of it…will be updating this review to see how it passes the test of time…
  • Very precise and easy to follow instructions…7th grade level explanations…
  • crushes ice for margaritas like it’s butter…
  • very light…
  • so much easier to clean than a blender…
  • This is my second B&D, and it made me a lifetime fan of the brand…
  • great budget purchase…
  • you can buy it at Amazon.com

The CONs

– the negative things the users had to say about the processor:

  • this processor wouldn’t turn on out of the box…
  • I got it on sale but got the wrong blade…it can’t even fit…
  • I spent an hour just trying to put this thing together…

My reviews resume:

Great budget solution, that’s what this is.

And for a budget solution, it packs some serious power. From what I’ve seen, it works as good as food processors that cost many times over. Solid build, quality steel used on the blades, pretty compact but still a nice wide tube.

I always liked the simple German design, and it seems that they made an effort even with their lower-end products like this. Kudos for that.

The main CON that I am seeing is that it’s loud. Looking at the weight and the power, it probably is.

I had a similar issue with one of my previous food processor and I find that wrapping a cloth around the base of the processor cuts the noise at least in half since most of the noise comes from vibrations.

If the main issue is the noise, then for me, it’s a non issue. For the price, especially.

Smart buy anyway you look at it.

Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor

Why Breville Sous Chef Food Processor Is A Big Helper In The Kitchen – Full Review

Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor

It’s more difficult now than it ever was.

Why?

Primarily because of bad outsourcing practices used by certain companies.

I was a Quality Assurance Manager in one of the bigger brand in home appliances, and I know my stuff, you can bet on it. That’s why I make it a rule of thumb to:

  1. Only review products made in the US, Canada or Western Europe
  2. Only review products that I know are outsourced to locations that will maintain the quality of the products

So, let’s dig right into the review of this Breville, one of the best food processors on the market today.

See more pictures and customer reviews on this amazon dedicated page.

Here’s what we’ll do in the review:

  1. Take a look at the product specifications
  2. Take a look at customer reviews, both positive and negative ones
  3. Give it an overall quality rating in my review summary

Specifications:

Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Best Food Processor

  • Out of the box, it includes 5 multifunctional discs and 3 blades
  • No more pre-cutting the fruits and veggies because of the super wide feed tube (5.5″)
  • 2 bowls (16 cup and 2.5 cup mini bowl)
  • LCD screen with a count-up and count-down timer
  • color choices
  • can be stored both horizontally and vertically
  • Built by North American standards

The positive reviews of this food processor – the PROs:

 

  • I’m a chef and I am very strict with my kitchen equipment but I love this processor so much that I am starting to hate it…
  • amazed at the power of the engine…
  • A real eye-candy, I get compliments on it left and right from my guests…
  • Fits perfectly under the kitchen pieces. I got the Cranberry Red, and it looks amazing…for me, worth every dime…
  • No hole at the bottom like my in my previous Kitchen Aid, which would always drip if you fill it too much, the container is marked like a measuring cup…everything about this product seems bigger, stronger, faster, better…
  • I was shopping around and researching for a food processor upgrade for months before I decided to go with this Breville…no regrets so far…
  • great customer service – when I dropped the small bowl and chipped it they sent me a new one for free within 3 days…
  • everything that my old processor wasn’t…
  • quiet and so easy to use…
  • Finally decided to pamper myself and get a really good processor. What the heck, if my husband can spend thousands on aluminum whatever for his car, I can spend a couple of hundred on something that seems like it will last me a lifetime…
  • It literally makes my life easier…
  • chopping takes seconds…
  • It cuts the preparation time of some of my meals in half…
  • I had my doubts but all things considered, now that I have this processor, it seems like a bargain…
  • The machine makes chopping salads almost too easy…
  • If this food processor cost twice as much it would still be worth every penny, compared to the junk I used to have…
  • I am trying to find flaws but I think it was impossible getting a better machine…
  • I would recommend this machine to anybody anytime, it made my days in the kitchen fun…
  • It was a mess with my previous Cuisinart, especially getting the lid just in place so that it would work. This Breville is slick, fast and easy to use…great value for money…
  • I am writing this review after 6 months of use and I’ll try to be unbiased. Amazing adjustable slicing blade – so no more mandolin for me, versatile with the attachments, so far seems sturdy and strong…and I cannot even begin to explain all the ways it’s better than my old processor…
  • A major, really major upgrade from my old food processor…anything that I’ll ever need from a food processor…
  • Even if this Breville dies at some point, I am getting the same one if they are still on the market by then…
  • Just beautiful, amazing workmanship…
  • you can buy it online at Amazon

The negative reviews – the CONs:

  • the small bowl is not that useful…
  • pretty heavy and big…
  • my machine was getting stuck all the time, so I sent it back…waiting for the replacement…
  • I bake a lot and I expected it to be better with the dough…

My reviews resume:

Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor partsOne of the best home food processors on the market, in my book at least. I’ve seen it action, and it’ss almost too powerful and fast for its own good.

It is big and a bit on the heavier side, but that’s to be expected from a product that packs so much “heath”. Versatile, even more so than you might’ve thought after seeing the specifications, because you can adjust how thick (thin) the slicer works (24 settings for one disc).

Very smart design.

The tube is wide enough for you to forget pre-cutting. A huge relief.

Professional quality in your kitchen. Overall Quality Rating of 4.8 stars.

It’s good to see someone still standing behind the quality of their products.

KitchenAid 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processors

KitchenAid 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processor is very good – Appreciated by customers across US

KitchenAid 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processors

If you are looking at the customer reviews, this baby might be one of the best choices for your home.

But here is the issue – you might be looking at reviews that became obsolete in the meantime.

Here’s why…

What if the company outsourced the production since the customer review was written?

I worked in the industry for years, I know every trick in the book and even for me, it’s getting increasingly difficult to stay on top of things.

Click here to check out actual buyers ratings on Amazon.com.

That’s why I came up with a simple system to ensure that only quality products have their place on my website. I stick with this 3 simple rules.

  1. I review products that are made in North America
  2. I review pieces that are made in Western Europe
  3. I remove the products from my website when I learn they are outsourced to a location I know might mess with the quality of a product

That’s how I ensure that the visitors of my website have only high quality food processors on their screens.

But, enough ramble, let’s dig into this review and see if this KitchenAid lives up to the expectations.

This review will be broken into 3 parts:

  1. We’ll take a look at what the company is saying
  2. We’ll take a look at what the customers have to say – both PROs and CONs
  3. I’ll interpret everything said and give my final verdict on whether I think this processor deserves to be in your kitchen

*when you look at the second rule, you might think: “But wait, she just said that the user review might become obsolete.” Let me remind you that I remove products that I learn are outsourced to fishy locations, so all of the experiences you’ll see here still stand.

So, let’s get straight into it:

The specifications of the food processor:

  • 700 watt strong, 12 cup volume bowl
  • highest quality blade (stainless steel)
  • very quiet (features a sealed housing design)
  • pulse control
  • two feed tubes ( one for the mini bowl with it’s own blade)
  • Smooth base makes cleaning easy
  • Safe to use in a dish-washer (bowls, blades, discs)
  • 16-1/8 x 8-5/16 x 10-2/5 ” in size
  • full 1 year warranty (complete replacement rights)

So, KitchenAid thinks highly of their product, but it’s only bragging until we see what the end users are saying – so let’s do that.

The positive customer review of this food processors – the PROs:

  • I bought this in 2011 and it’s still going strong…completely satisfied…
  • I heard they are not making this thing anymore, so I got an extra one that just sits in my closet. I think that says a lot about my experience with this product…
  • It chops everything from hard meat to veggies with ease…
  • I use this for a wide variety of jobs, made my kitchen life so much easier…
  • Just the right size for 99% of the jobs I need to do…
  • Love how the tube is very wide, I have to pre-cut things only with the long vegetables…
  • Just as advertised…
  • Well beyond my expectations, especially for the price…
  • I don’t know the reason behind KitchenAid discounting this piece every once in a while, but I am waiting for the next discount to get one for my sister…
  • It does everything from shredding cheese to making salsa…if only it could make my bed, too…
  • After six months of using this baby I can say that it’s a real bargain…
  • Bought this for a friend and she can’t stop talking about it…
  • I owned a processor that cost twice as much (it died a few months ago), so I got this one…I can’t really tell the difference so far…

The negative customer review of this food processors – the CONs:

  • My lid broke and I had to replace it…
  • I had this processor and loved it for over 3.5 years until the motor broke. Now they are saying that it will cost me over 50 bucks to send it back for diagnosis and see if can be repaired…disappointed, judging by the reviews I though this thing will go on for at least ten years…
  • Not a fan of the design and the colors…

My reviews resume:

If America’s Kitchen Test rates something as ‘best’ for years in a row, you can calmly get it without over thinking. I know how through these guys are with their reviews.

And if you find a product on my website, you can be sure that the quality hasn’t changed.

With this kind of products, I spend most of my time looking at the negative reviews and see if I can find any deal-breakers. Didn’t find any of those here. I found what I know are exceptions and simply cases of getting a flawed product. I am basing this on my experience of Quality Assurance Manager.

This is where the customer services steps in, and I know for a fact that Kitchen Aid is very customer friendly (hail to Brian 🙂 ).

Overall, great value for money and a solid investment.
