Best Buy Customer Reviews

A product that works as advertised Posted by: from: New York NY on I bought this mini food-processor for my 70-year old mom. After years of cutting onions and garlic cloves by hand, I decided to buy my mom a simple food processor for her to use on a daily basis. She was skeptical at first, but after I opened the box and set it up for her on the counter she thinks the world of this food processor. She finds it simple to operate and even easier to clean. She uses it almost on a daily basis to chop onions, garlic, and all kinds of fruits (apple, pears, etc.) I could not have asked for a better and simpler solution to give my mom. As far as we're both concerned, this is the best food processor you can buy for under $40.

Works good Posted by: from: SD on It fits nicely in my, limited, cupboard space. Not liking having to stand and push the button is really a very minor problem for me. I just like to multitask in the kitchen and pushing a button for 20 secs seems like forever :) It has been a good purchase and I would recommend it to anyone.

I'd re-engineer this if I could Posted by: from: Chicago, IL on So my background is engineer with plastics molding, and there are a few simple tweaks that could raise this from 2-star status to 5-star status in my eyes. First of all, the cup is very difficult to place on the post. You have to line it up just so. Unfortunately, there's no line or indicator to tell you where to line this up, so you may fumble with it for a good minute before it'll go on. Would've been so easy to mold a line or arrow into the cup AND base at no additional cost. Once aligned, you'd know it was ready to snap on. Secondly, forget about putting anything with liquid in here, or prepare to be sprayed with it no matter how tightly you hold the lid on. The lid edge meets the cup edge, and there's no sort of seal or lip, so when I put some stewed peppers in with a tiny bit of water, my walls (and I) got sprayed with red liquid. Good times. It even sprayed a little when making aioli last night, with no water. Would've been so simple to mold a lip onto the lid to prevent this, again, at no additional cost to manufacturing. How'd this get through the prototype phase and get approved?? It chops and blends decently well, but for items that are blessedly less liquidy, you'll have to remove the lid a few times, scrape the solids off with the included little spatula and push them down toward the blades again. Otherwise, they'll be missed and will stay solids, clinging to the cup walls.

Great for the price! Posted by: from: Plymouth on I bought this food processor to make Pesto and it does the job perfectly! I have made about 6 batches so far with no issues at all. Except for pesto is a bit messy to make! This processor is super easy to use, and does exactly what I bought it to do! I used it to grate some zucchini for some zucchini bread and it worked great for that too! Great little processor for the price!

It was not what I expected Posted by: from: Indiana on I bought this machine to quickly chop onions, bell peppers, etc for seasoning food. The machine is very powerful, so bell peppers end up crushed and mushy. This is perfect for making baby food or mashed potatoes, but it is not very good for chopping.

Perfect for a bachelor! Posted by: from: Cincinnati, OH on I needed a food processor for a recipe I was making. I didn't want to spend $100+ for a food processor. I saw this at Best Buy, and figured, 'It's better than nothing." I was wrong; this thing is awesome! I have already used it more than I thought I would. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a full-sized food processor, but if you need something to grind or chop, this does it, and WELL!

Decent entry level food processor Posted by: from: LA, CA on The motor is so powerful that it ends up mincing everything. Difficult to get chopped uniform pieces of vegetables.
