Take this into consideration before your purchase
This model also requires you to prepare foods before processing. This isn’t the most convenient solution but after processing you can expect great results. We also have to point out that the lid is loose during operation so you need to monitor it at all times as it appears as it will pop out at any moment.
The positive side of this appliance is that is not loud during use. This makes using it great especially when you are preparing foods and meals for extended periods of time.
Great cutting performance thanks to the blade design reduces various kinds of foods into a fine pulp. It’s always a good thing when a product manages to surprise us with a good power-to-performance ratio. At first, we were doubtful about its efficiency as it uses a low power motor. And yet the blades manage to chop, slice and grind anything that you throw at them. We believe that this is possible mostly to a great design. You can expect all of your foods to get processed into the finest pulp but do not expect fancy speed settings as this is a basic functionality model. It allows simple operation and great performance and that’s all there is to it. We like the simplicity and feel that this model might be a great choice as a first-time food processor for most people.
The design and build quality do not disappoint as the whole product feels premium and high quality. We appreciate the weight of the unit as being a confidence inducing sign of the quality of the parts. Also, note that this isn’t the most compact food processor on the market. While the design could be better for the price, we feel that in this case, the functionality came first. The extra weight will make moving it an uneasy matter so you should consider its size and weight before deciding to buy it. The included one-year warranty is standard and really nothing to write home about.
