After my 12 year old 2 cup Hamilton Beach processor's blades became dull, I decided to upgrade to a slightly larger unit. The six cup is a much more usable unit but not big and cumbersome like a large 10 cup unit. This little item has a powerfull 300 watt motor. I was amazed at how fast it completely shredded a load of carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Three seconds, tops!! It actually did a better, faster and with more uniformity, job than my larger much more expensive ($175) new processor. It's easy to assemble and easy to clean. I love it, love it. I just hope it lasts as long as my last unit. Buy it, you won't be sorry and the $31 price is a bargain compared to other models.
The first couple of things I used this for, I was really happy. I processed spinach for a pesto lasagna and then cilantro for some rice. Then the tomato I wanted to chop came out pretty fine, but still definitely usable. Later I tried to do bell pepper, and it completely liquefied it. Same with the onion. By that point, I was really disappointed, because I wanted the machine primarily to shorten my food prep time by chopping veggies for cooking. I'm glad I talked to the guy at the kitchen specialty store before I bought something else to try. The manual recommends cutting the veggie into smaller chunks before processing. My mistake was running the processor while I put chunks one by one through the shoot. So the first chunks I would put in got completely liquefied while the last chunks weren't chopped quite enough. The specialty store guy told me to put all the chunks in at once, then pulse it little by little until everything is the size you want it. Sounds pretty obvious, but I didn't figure it out until then. Now I'm really happy that it does what I want it to, and i didn't waste my money.
I researched other more expensive processors, and decided to see if this one would do what I wanted for the less expensive price. For the price this processor is definitely worth it. Best features are that everything is dishwasher safe, and all the components fit into the bowl for minimum storage space. The con is that even with my newfound technique, it still doesn't chop everything completely evenly. Maybe I'll get better at it. It still saves tons of time. I've only had it a month, so I can't say much about durability. Nothing's broken so far. I have yet to master the "shredding and slicing" attachment, so I don't want to review that part. Overall, I'd buy it again if I had it to over.
Works well and is compact not so big that it doesn't fit in the cupboard!
This is the fourth Hamilton Beach food processor I have purchased during my 41-year marriage. I obtained my first one as a wedding gift all those years ago! As an avid organic gardener, I process a huge quantity of my produce and these hard-working machines are compact, simple to use and easy to clean. Some people might think, " FOUR food processors? That doesn't sound like a good recommendation!" Ha! I'm wearing one out on an average of every 10 years, and even if adding the price of ALL of them together, I still have spent a fraction of the cost of one of those high-priced models! In fact, this new model has just been purchased in anticipation of a busy garden season, waiting "in reserve", because my third one is still going strong and I don't want to be caught in the middle of some big canning job if Number Three dies a valiant death. I loves these processors!
Although I have only used the product a few times, I am very happy with the quality and value.
i had to try this out as soon as i got it.carrots sliced thinner than i would have liked them so did the celery.it's very hard to use the push down attachment for the shoot unless whatever you're slicing is the EXACT size as the shoot.i sliced 5lbs. of carrots then placed them on a cookie sheet to freeze. then scooped them up into a freezer bag. same with the celery. now i can use then whenever i want and not worry about spoiling in the frig.i also freeze bananas to use at a later date for banana bread. the food processor did all the work for me. no more mushing bananas with a fork.
I previously owned one of these. Its Easy & Very Fast to Operate. You don't need a fancy product & pay Top dollar to get the job done. Great for Pico de Gallo and it's done easily & fast. Have used it to Shred Chicken (boneless) for Chicken Salad as well and all done in seconds. A Key Note, just turn the dial slightly to shred a little. The more you turn he dial, the finer it shreds. No need to use the shred blade for both of these preparations.. I'm planning to purchase 2 or 3 more to give as wedding & house warming gifts. It is an awesome produce & highly recommended...
I have owned this product for 5 years and it just recently stopped working after many,many uses.
It is a great value and I truly have gotten my money's worth! I will repurchase this.
I live in apt with limited kitchen space. I bought this item because all the parts can be stored together inside unit. It works well, it's easy to use, and is just enough for my needs.
Great product. Very easy to use and clean.
I purchased this food processor about 4 years ago and it has been amazing. I use it all the time, and it still works great. About a year ago the twist on lid cracked ad then started chipping off, but it still works. Considering how long I've had it, and how much time/energy it has saved me, I would say it has well payed for itself. I would for sure recommend this product.
I had used my daughter's food processor and was so impressed I had to buy one for myself. It was my best friend while making salsa!
This is a great machine. It does not take up a great deal of room on my kitchen counter. Although, I need to cut food to fit the shoot container,(which isn't a problem with me), it does a wonderful job in only seconds. There are only two of us in our household now, so I do not have use for a larger product. Meets my needs immensely. Processor is very easy to put together and take to apart to wash. I use my processor almost everyday now. My larger one was quite cumbersome; as a consequence I did not use the large processor unless I was having company for dinner. This processor meant my expectations and then some.
We bought this recently for chopping vegetables and soft food, and it worked well for us for the most part. It can chop and mince to very fine pieces, but there are minor amount of large pieces left unchopped, probably because they settle down to the bottom and the blade can not pick them up. Otherwise, we are very satisfied with it and only hope it will last long.
I had been looking for a larger food processor as I am always making big batches of salsa. This food processor is awesome. It chops all of my ingredients in less than 30 seconds !!! It is very easy to take apart and clean. This processor is sturdy and looks nice enough to keep on my kitchen counter. If you are looking for a great deal this is the one for you !!
Does a great job and I like how its made. Makes cooking much easier and I wish I had purchased it sooner! Made gumbo this weekend and instead of a half hour to chop and slice, it was less than 5 minutes!
I wanted this to make cookie and bread dough. It said in the description that it could handle bread dough. When I opened it and read the instructions, they said it would ruin the machine if cookie or bread dough were made in it. It was returned the next day.
This product is compact, has a powerful motor, easy to use and clean. We use this primarily as a vegetable chopper and it meets our expectations to the best.
You just need to be careful to control the speed so that your stuff is not overchopped, because it made a paste of onions the first time we used it. Overall my wife likes it and recommended a good rating for this product.
I was very pleased with the product so far it has been so awesome. I've only used it 3 times, but it is so quick to use. It took less than an minute to slice onions. It's just awesome.
When I bought this food processor, I was thinking it was one that was a big processor with the bowl like Walmart used to sell. I got it in the mail and looked it over and it was way too small for what I needed it for. I recommend it to anyone that does not do a lot of canning products in the summer knowing that is what I do. It's cute in design and very easy to use but it's not the one I expected to buy. A 6 cup is not big enough for processing vegetables when there is a big harvest.
