Don’t buy this basic thingI bought this in a hurry. It has 2 speeds, fast and super fast (supposedly Low and High). The pulse function is simply the same: fast. There’s no gradual speed setting so that liquid can be added gradually. Yes, give me the previous early models. This machine acts like a blender when it should be a capable processor. I’m so disappointed, Breville. Show details
Disappointing purchaseI bought this cheap machine to replace an expensive Magimix food processor. The Breville does a good with vegetables and soups.
However, the pulse function and even the non pulse functions wont stop quickly enough, it just keeps running a couple more seconds instead of stopping when I think the food is chopped/mixed enough. Show details
Used regularly, highly recommendPurchased to replace my ancient processor. No comparison. This machine is used at least 3 times a week. Chopped & grated veg for soup in about 10 minutes as compared to at least half an hour by hand. Fantastic results every time. No more rubbing butter into flour by hand - 20 seconds in the wizz & it's done. Cheese grated for my insatiable cheese eating family every time I get it out (no point getting it dirty for one thing). Pesto / Herb rub for meat, finely grinding chickpeas/mushrooms/onions - it does it all. My sister in law uses it to peel... Read more her small potatoes & swears by it - I haven't done it but bought this on her recommendation & believe her. Tip - use a small brush to clean the attachments, the chute & the edges inside & even the sticky bits will come clean quickly. Oh and BE CAREFUL, those blades will slice your fingers! Hence using the brush might save some skin.
DisapponintedTo be fair, this review is written from the point of view of nut butters as this was one of two reasons for which I bought this machine, based on reviews that said it could make nut butters, not many can. Yes, it does but....
My old kitchen Wizz finally gave up after 25 years so I needed to replace it.
The new kitchen Wizz took double the time as my old one, even though the bowl is twice as big with double the blades. To clean the book suggests 'rinse' which may work when chopping vegetables but nut butters get into every nook and cranny you ... Read morecan imagine, of which the Breville kitchen wizz 8 has many! I look foward to making nut butter every time, but no more, the time spent cleaning this machine now makes it a chore and a bore. You need a toothbursh to get into all the crevices to clean properly and I will never be able to dry/clean the locking mechanisms as they simply let water in where no towel can get to which over the years will lead to a disgusting build up which I can do nothing about. Overall, I wish I could get my money back and try another machine, not looking forward to 20 years of cleaning this one.
Excellent machineThis is a replacement for our previous Breville Wizz that lasted for at least 25 years until replacement bowls were no longer available. The new one is a superior design as it is easier to clean and the motor body has no crevices to collect dirt. It shreds cabbage for sauerkraut brilliantly and is great for liquidizing soups. The plastic bowl and lid seem sturdier than the old model. I bought this with Flyby points so I am not a verified purchaser - just a happy one! Show details
Great processorVery happy with this machine. Shreds carrots, zucchini with ease. Huge capacity. I did 3 carrots & 3 zucchini and there was still loads of room left. Breadcrumbs with the quad blades was a breeze. Potato peeling function works surprisingly well, bit messy and you have to choose quite small potatoes but can peel up to 6 potatoes in less than 30 seconds! Instructions included are quite informative about what blade can do what function. I like it’s wide mouth for inserting food. No trouble with moisture remaining in the handle, it dissipates in a couple of hours, then I pack away. Show details
Breville, you couldn't do much betterIt comes with 5 attachments - Potato peeler, Dough blade, Quad blade, Adjustable slicer and Fine and course reversible shredder.
The Quad blade and Adjustable slicer are my favourites ,which I use all the time, its great for chopping veges really quick, no more onion eyes baby!
The machine is easy to clean, we just chuck it in the dishwasher - make sure the bowl it dry before putting it away as moisture does get inside the handle.
This machine is so much better than the two Sunbeam MultiProcessor Compact LC6000 we had for a very short time - read review called "Flimsy materials and poorly designed machine :("
Product is great, works well and is used regularlyWe were loathe to buy a new processor but our Braun Multi practice died after 27 years; The choice was big but this one took up less space, had a large bowl; and as we couldn't get the same brand we knew Breville were good - having had the toasted sandwich maker for a long time ( the second one). My partner thinks it is wonderful and is most impressed, it doesn't leak out the middle as the old one did, better designed! The slicer/grater is good also, surprisingly. Having the double blade in the processor bowl is excellent, no effort to process ... Read moreanything, even smaller batches. It was good value and provided what we required with no extras we would not use!. Many in the price range included a liquidiser BUT we already had this with a mixer. Easy to store, and quick to put together for use. We look forward to using it hopefully as long as our last processor lived!
fantastic has worked wellBought this unit around 12 months ago and it has not missed a beat. It is used regularly for bread making and the occasional grating of vegetables and fruit. So far I am very pleased with this product and commend Breville for making a reasonably priced unit that has actually lasted.
Questions & Answers
Will this be good for cutting dates, almonds and cashews?
Just purchased a Breville Wizz and Store LFP460GRY from Big W. Just used this to make my Nut Balls and noticed that the nuts are not ground very finely. The quantity was small for my nut balls. Do I need to grind for longer? Will the machine hold? My next attempt will be for nut butter. Quantity for this will be 2 cups worth. Am I able to grind the nuts finely without burning out the machine? I did notice that the ground nuts for my nut ball were rather coarse. Ok for nut balls but not for nut butter. So my question is if I leave the nut butter for a longer grind will I burn out the machine?
I make peanut butter every two weeks, machine not burnt out yet, but it is starting to make a strange noise after 2 years of nut butters. I make enough for two jars at once
Thnx for that quick reply. I probably make 1.5 bottles every 4 weeks? Used to have a Cuisineart 4cup chopper/grinder which broke as I dropped it. Oops!!! I used it 1st time making a small batch... Read more
Can I make natural nut butter, without adding oil or anything else? Just the nut...
Yes, I make peanut butter every two weeks. But I can’t say about other nuts as I have only ever tried peanut butter
