Rated 5 out of 5 by Alyb Great addition to my kitchen
This food processor arrived and instantly I was wowed by how lightweight it is. The black base complements my other appliances perfectly but the colour ring that lights up when you choose between the different settings is not only unique but adds a touch of style to what could be another mundane item in your kitchen. Depending on what setting you choose, a different coloured light brightens up the base. With a large bowl I was able to finely chop 4 large onions and then a quick rinse and I grated a block of cheese in next to no time. There is a wide selection of different attachments which are great because they are so versatile and I know I can chop, blend, grate and slice through the funnel really quickly, reducing my cooking preparation time down considerably (ideal when you are a working mum!). I will leave this food processor on the counter because, even though it has a large mixing bowl, it does not take up a large area of my kitchen work surface. The additional mixing jug will be great for when I do my summer Smoothies.

This food processor is very stylish and compact yet as everything you could wish for. From getting it out of its box to putting it together which was done in a couple of minutes was very simple. The instructions were very easy to follow. I'm afraid I only managed to use the processor once, but I was very satisfied with how easy it was to chop and shred vegetables and cleaning it afterwards was no trouble at all. The changing colour of the different speeds was very good idea. The appearance of it is nice enough to have on show when not in use but compact enough to find a place for it in a cupboard. I think this is very good value for the price

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lottie Easy to use stylish processor
The food processor looks smart and would fit in with any modern kitchen. The coloured lights which represent the different functions when in use look very stylish. The instructions at first were difficult to follow however it subsequently emerged that the mixer part was missing. Once we realised that there was a part missing the instructions then made sense. The missing part was speedily replaced once reported. From then on found it very easy to use and intuitive with no further need to refer back to the guide.
There are two discs, a fine and coarse grater and they both make easy work grating a variety of ingredients. The blender gives good smooth results and pours well. The speed control function allows different speeds with the option of a quick burst at high speed. The processer stays firmly attached to the kitchen worktop whilst in operation through the sucker feet.
As a novice food processor user it has now become a staple part of food preparation and I wonder how I managed without one before!

This food processor is better than any I have had previously. It looks modern and is very solid and sturdy. I was impressed with the tools that come with it, you get the standard blade but also a mixer blade and a whipping tool which I have never seen before.
I first tried pastry as I have NEVER made good pastry...until now! It was really quick to make, no mess and I didn't have to worry about warm hands. I didn't have to worry about flour escaping when the processor is one either. I have since made cakes in it and found it great for an all in cake mix, load ingredients and turn it on, done.
As always cleaning is a bit of a faff but the base is really easy to clean and no streaks were left behind. The base also has suction cups to keep it steady on the work surface which helps when a ball of pastry is barrelling round.
The base lights up when on, different colours depending on the speed which looks good but when you are using it you don't notice it as you are watching the action in the processor or blender so this this is a bit unnecessary.
Really like using this processor and I know it is not going to be a gadget that is shoved in a cupboard.

This is a neat, compact and stylish product yet big enough to do everything. The instruction manual is short and brief yet easy to understand. The majority of the parts fit into the bowl and the product is nice enough to keep on the countertop. The different speeds are colour coded which is helpful. I used the creamer to make a cake mixture which turned out very well and you can just pour all the ingredients through the funnel. The blades mince evenly and quickly, I have not used the slicing blades yet but all the attachements fit quickly and easily. I think it is very good value for money considering everything you can do with it.
