      I'd re-engineer this if I could

      Posted

      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.

      A product that works as advertised

      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.

      We bought this one to replace the previous model that finally broke after years of heavy use. The new model is slightly bigger but still small enough to be perfect for those everyday chopping and cutting jobs. They also improved the design of the blade and cup so that the loads are mixed better and thus chop faster and more evenly. The new design also has a lot more rounded corners,covered buttons and less cracks and grooves so that cleaning is much easier. This is our go-to machine and we hope it will last as long as the last one.

      Good for dips but not for chopping

      I bought this thinking that I could save time chopping tomatoes and onions when I cook, just like the pictures shown on the box. It is way too powerful though. This obliterates vegetables into a liquid and the tomatoes become salsa with just a slight push of the chopping button for 2 seconds. I gave it 2 stars because it is cheap and it does make dips, salsa, or drinks easily. I would not recommend if looking for just chopping.

      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!

      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!

      This is an ideal size for a singleton or maybe a couple and it has a small footprint. It quickly chops and grinds to the desired size/consistency, and does so relatively quietly. Removing the processed food is easy and not messy. It is easy, fast and fool proof to assemble, use and clean. This processor makes cooking much less of a chore. This would be ideal for anyone who has trouble chewing or swallowing.

      I used to own the older version where you could vary the speed but had to physically remove and flip the blade for switching between soft and hard foods. I like that this has the convenience of doing both hard and soft foods without changing blades. I liked the old version's squarish design and chrome finish, this one has a very cheap looking plastic finish. I mostly use this for mincing garlic and ginger and is a good gadget to have handy.
