I 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.
Used regularly, highly recommend
Purchased 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...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.

To 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 ...
This 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!
Purchased in April 2019.

Very 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.
Breville, you couldn't do much better
It 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 regularly
We 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 ...anything, 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 well
Bought 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
Are you able to get the juicer attachments with the BFP560SIL ( for juicing oranges)?
Can I buy a blender jug for my kitchen wizz 8 BFP560SIL?
No, the only replacement part available is the bowl and blades for the wizz 8
However, you could contact breville to see if any of their other blenders will fit the wizz 8, as blender jugs are available to purchase as spare parts.
I would contact them directly as even they the blender jug isn't listed as a spare, they may be able to offer it to you
