  • Chopping blade and slice and shred reversible discs are included in this offer

  • So far everything sounds peachy, but let’s see what real end users have to say about this food processor.

Positive reviews as per end user reviews of this food processor:

  • This is the very best food processor I’ve had so far. It does the job quickly and efficiently. It’s really easy to use, and it doesn’t take up too much space.
  • So far it has worked great on nuts, vegetables, combinations of those two, cheese, herbs.. We’ve even made guacamole, pesto, hummus and salsa for dinner parties since it has such a generous capacity, and it works wonders…
  • This machine is truly the fastest I’ve had so far. It got delivered super fast, and it’s really easy to use and easy to clean. No complaints…
  • It looks really great in my kitchen, and I like the design. It also looks like it’s built to last.
  • It does what it says it will on the box. It’s cut my prep time in half, and I’m really grateful for that….
  • The motor is really powerful, and the blades are super sharp, so it chops anything so fas..
  • I use the pulse option most of the time. It’s really easy to clean, and it’s a great unit to have if you often cook for more than 2 people or want to store a big batch of, let’s say, pesto…
  • It came super fast and in a wonderful box…it would make a great present, too…
  • I started canning, and this little guy was of so much help. And not just for vegetables, but for the cheese too…
  • It’s really easy to store, it doesn’t take up too much space for a big food processor. Smart design
  • It’s not only really inexpensive, but it works just as well as my old one that cost twice as much…
  • It’s almost 50% cheaper to grate your own cheese than buy the shredded kind…
  • It looks really sturdy, so I hope it lasts for a long time…
  • It’s really easy to assemble, use and then clean this product. I’m definitely going to make more salads and cook more home-made meals now that I have this bad boy…
  • Does exactly what it says it will. It doesn’t take up too much space…
  • There are no small parts, just three big ones…loving the simplicity of it…
  • This is simply a really great food processor with a great capacity. Just the right size for my big family dinners…
  • It does a great job at both chopping and mixing…
  • see amazon price

CONs – the negative user reviews of this food processor:

  • I didn’t realize just how big bowl capacity a 10-cup processor has. I usually cook for two people, so I should’ve gone with a mini food processor…
  • I wish there was some kind of slow setting…
  • I measured how many cups of water it can fit until it reaches the recommended maximum line, and it’s only 6-7 cups. It technically fits 10, but you can’t process it as well as when you use the recommended amount…
  • My bowl broke after a week of use…

My final review resume and overall rating:

Hamilton Beach 10 Cup Food Processor with Compact Storage reviewAnd now for my favorite part- the final evaluation and grading of this product. So far we pretty much got the picture of what this Hamilton can and can’t do.

It’s a big and powerful machine that is multipurpose as well. As an ex Quality Assurance Manager, I really tried my best to find some major flaws or shortcomings to warn you about.

Unlike most units with many features, this food processor showed satisfying results when tested for each and every one of them.

The only thing I need to warn you about, and trust me, I can’t stress this one enough, is the fact that any and every food processor bowl has a minimum and maximum requirement.

Basically, that means that it won’t work well at all if you stuff it over max capacity, and you wouldn’t get any results if you put too little food inside either. So, don’t take the advertising number for granted.
