I have an old 4 cup B&D processor that I love. It has two blades: one at the base of the bowl for chopping and mixing, and one at the top for shredding. The 4 cup size is perfect for processing ingredients for recipes. When the shredding blade housing broke last week, I looked for a replacement for the whole unit, as I already have a full sized Cuisinart for big jobs. Th 4 cup size is perfect for both ingredient preparation and for ease of storage. Sadly, no one seems to make a 4 cup unit that has both blades; they only come with chopping and mixing blade, and no shredder. Sigh. So, the closest I could find was this 8 cup B&D, at over TWICE the physical size I wanted. It's almost as big as a Cuisinart. But, it is lighter to haul around the kitchen, and smaller than a true full size machine. Anyway, I've had it for a week, and it seems okay. It works much like my old B&D. Time will tell if it holds up to the 20 years of use I got out of the old one. I does seem to have more plastic, and fewer metal, components than my old one, so that makes me concerned. Hey, B&D, make a 4 cup model!!!!
