Better than Sunbeam
After the Sunbeam one broke, I did my research on a good cheap food processor and this one was the best reviewed.
Haven't used it much but it works well on processing buscuits for slices and making slices.
It is not as noisy as the sunbeam and the bowl feels sturdier. I have tried the grater and slicer yet but I don't have a need for them anyway. It is easy to clean with less areas for dirt to trap unlike the Sunbeam.
The only think I don't like is the rod that you have to clean after each use and one of the safety switches is a little dodgy but otherwise works fine.
I think this food processor is good value and a good basic choice for our needs.

Good, honest food processor
Needed this primarily for curry pastes, grinding up onions and things. checked all the various offerings but opted for this based on reviews, price, and neatness on the bench.
It works, very well. Handled 6 onions plus all the other stuff. I was pleased.
Haven't tried the grating and slicing thing yet, quite clever have one disc to do both functions, you just flip it over. But haven't tested that yet... really bought it for the food processing function. Should have bought one of these years ago.

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
Purchased in May 2017 at The Good Guys for $80.00.
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.
Inexpensive but not cheap!
I haven't needed a food processor before and instead I have relied upon my $16 manual Slicer Dicer. A few weeks ago I needed a food processor to make soup. I narrowed down my choice to either a really inexpensive one under $100 or something with all the 'bells and whistles' for $400+. I ended up buying the Kambook from the Good Guys for $59 during the end of financial year sale, to see if I would use it a lot and then decide whether it would be worth spending a lot more. Long story short - the Slicer Dicer is now in the recycling bin and I save...a LOT of time in the kitchen with the Kambook. So while it is inexpensive I wouldn't say it is 'cheap'. The Kambrook Essentials Direct Drive KFP400 is easy to use, setup and clean. It has two modes: on/off and pulse (which is the most used mode). I love the suction cup feet that really stick the unit to my stone bench. Cleaning is very easy. I rinse the parts under warm water with a little dish washing detergent and a soft dish brush. I put the disk in the dishwasher plate rack. The disk and blades are very sharp and I take care to not cut my fingers or to blunt the edges. The chopping blades and disk can be stored inside the unit with the top and feed tube next to it (otherwise it would be too high for my pantry). The disk is double sided: slicing on one side and shredding on the other. It does make a lot of noise but it doesn't need to run for long to get the job done. For my first use I chopped and diced onions, capsicum and carrots. It was an absolute breeze - mere seconds. I made a double batch of capsicum soup with gouda and came second in our annual soup competition where I work. I was thrilled! When blending soup don't overfill the bowl because you want to avoid liquid going down the central drive shaft.
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.
Kambrook Essentials Direct Drive so so easy to use also clean up a breeze .
Love the Pulse Button as well as on off Button all together.
Very safe to use and not being any where near the top price range this one does it all.
Much used item on my bench.
Simple product, works like a dream!
I purchased this as a replacement for my Sunbeam Oskar Mini. As our family grows, the Sunbeam was becoming too small. It's really big, fits lots in it, will definitely be using it to process soup when the weather is cooler.
It's easy to clean and I prefer the blade fitting to the one that came with the Sunbeam - I could never get that completely clean on the inside, but this is so easy to clean. There is no way for food to get trapped anywhere. Like I said before, it's really big, but I've used it for small amounts (i.e. just one stewed apple...
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!
Good design for ease of use at a good price
This processor has a processing blade for chopping and pureeing and a reversible disc for slicing and shredding. I use mine almost everyday for chopping nuts, herbs and vegetables, pureeing dips and spreads and slicing or shredding vegetables for soups.
It is easy to use and to take out the blades using the finger hole and to scrape the bowl which has straight sides. It is a good basic processor. This is the second one I bought of this model; the first one's motor broke down after 14 months. I think may have been because I filled the processo...
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. .
Affordable and effective food processor
A cheap processor that efficiently and effectively goes about its business. It delivers good results. After reading many poor reviews of food processors, I decided to give this machine a shot.
I've used this processor to make the following so far
1. Kiwi and ginger sorbet: This was processed well and the frozen kiwi fruit ice crystals were fine. Initially, there was lots of vibration (due to the way the frozen kiwi fruit chunks clumped together) but it soon smoothened out
2. Almond and cashew nut butter without additional oil or liquids. T...
Questions & Answers
we have the food bow stuck in position and can not remove from the base. how can we remove?
