Overall Rating4.5 out of 5 stars

Overall ReviewThis food processor is ideal for almost any home cook. It has the large capacity bowl for anyone who prepares food for more than 2 people as well as the mini bowl for smaller projects. It easily chops, grates, purees and slices as well as preparing dough. 90% of the reviewers love this model and gave it 4 or 5 stars. They marvel at it's quiet yet powerful motor, how useful the two bowls and several accessories are, and it's overall solid performance. The most commonly used accessories are included making this machine quite useful from day one. This is a great value and the editor's pick for the best mid-priced food processor.

The most common complaint from the other 10%? Leakage. You can not fill any food processor bowl anywhere near the top without leakage resulting. You must either do multiple batches or use a blender. This main bowl does have a clearly marked liquid fill line. The mini bowl does not, but a good general rule is to only fill a work bowl about halfway. When used as intended, this is a great machine.See all 540 Reviews
