Great food processor . I've had mine for a few years and blend nuts, crush ice and whatever else, it works well and was affordable :) I will definitely buy this brand again

Nice slicer with a little superglue


This machine is quite capable for cooking for our family and saves a lot of time slicing vegetables. It is fairly easy to clean and it has quite a large capacity. We did have trouble with the slicing blade, as the plastic centre failed. The shop sent a replacement blade but it also broke. However, a little superglue seemed to fix it and it now works perfectly.

Great kitchen aid - no frills but does the job


It's a basic system but does most blending jobs efficiently. I like its functionality. Easy to assemble, easy to clean and can chop and blend both Asian spices ss well as ingredients for soups finely and smoothly. It has a pulse action which is useful when doing foods that require drizzling in ingredients separately. I am very satisfied with it and use it daily. Great for a family of five.

Waste of money.


Purchased on 8 December 2017 and only worked once with the processing blade for processing kale. Tried to use again but it wouldn't turn on. Went to great lengths to ensure the bowl was correctly placed onto the motor base and the handle aligned correctly.
It's very frustrating to have all ingredients and equipment (food processor) for cooking, then the food processer doesn't work. This faulty machine obstruct the whole cooking process.
Took the product back for a full refund on 11 January 2018 but was denied same. After some juggling, the shop assistant got the product to work when it was empty. So sent me home with the faulty product.

Not perfect but good enough


Easy to assemble. A bit chunky to put in dishwashing machine. Not sure how you can wash with handwash since there are bits where it is hard to access. Does the job although with chopping you will get random shapes from minced to big bits. I haven't tried the slicing function. Overall, a good processor.

Excellent basic food processor


This is probably as basic a machine as you could buy, but it does everything that it's supposed to with no fuss. easy to operate and easy to clean and it wasn't expensive.
We learnt the hard way as to how good the Kambrook is. We bought a more complex FP from Aldi, an Ambiano. It proved to be far from satisfactory; compex assembly, blades that went blunt quickly, a shredding disc that couldn't be assembled. Be warned, stay away from the Ambiano!

Excellent, well-priced food processor


This is a very quick and effective food processor. Never had an issue with it. The attachments are really good and does all you need it to. This was purchased from the Good Guys for a very good price. It is very easy to use and makes life much easier.

My kambrook started off great,a bit noisy and jiggles around on the bench but was doing the job well. I have only used it a few times. After processing nuts and dates for a raw vegan dessert it suddenly decided not to turn on so i could finish the dessert topping... how do i fix this problem please. .

Not the worst


I was looking for my very first food processor and a cheap one and found this KFP400 at the Good Guys got home and started with the veggies worked fine on most but not the best slicer, could slice most things ok bit chunky at times mainly carrots and hard vegetables, was a bit noisy but for the price it was fine.Now I have used one and to be very versatile looking to upgrade .
Price ,Size
Little bit noisy

Just the right size


I needed a smaller size food processor and decided on this model. Couldn't be happier with it. Cleans easily. Not too big. Not too small. Just made peanut butter which required about 10mins of processing time. Handled it perfectly. It also cuts up my onions for me which I then freeze straight away
Just the right size and quite powerful.



Absolute rubbish!


I had this food processor for less than one week and was grating zucchinis (not exactly a hard thing to grate) when the food processor stopped working. The smell coming out of it was horrific and I realised that the plastic parts that hold the blades on to the main part of the processor had completely melted and had melted the bowl onto the processor and couldn't be removed.

Don't waste your money on this complete and utter piece of rubbish!!
Easy to use.
It was the biggest waste of money.
