The driveshaft comes off every time - Bad design
The driveshaft comes off every time when you remove the bowl. This is quite annoying. A design change is required to keep the shaft in place when the bowl is removed.
Also, the plastics seem to be on the very cheap side.

i purchased this food processor from the Good Guys in April of this year. Good value for money - $149.00. i don't use it alot, but it meets my needs, when i do.
Just one negative - i cannot get the underside "lids" off both the blender, and grinding mill base units, in order to clean them. i have breadcrumbs stuck down the sides of the red things (clips), which obviously are involved in holding the base lids on. There is nothing helpful in the instruction book to solve my problem.
Advice would be greatly appreciated :)
Good but not perfect
Great and powerful, the only drawback is that the grater does not work well with onion. It wastes a massive part of onions or potatoes, and always some parts of the actual onion or potato get mixed with the grated part because of the gap between the blades and the container. Other parts work perfectly.

Day to day Food Processor
Me and my wife normally use this for chopping and grinding veggies and mixing everything in at one go. Definitely works as expected. We don't normally use this frequently so I cannot really comment on its durability for daily grinding use. The built and design is quite average. Nothing fancy and suits our needs. It's also easy to clean and dry which is quite important for us. This model comes with a good number of useful attachments, but as of now have not used all of them. A definitely a good pick at its price.

Great food processor, easy clean
I love this food processor. Design wise; it is a good, looking easy to store machine. It has two lovely indented grips at the side to easily pick it up. The blender jug is glass and the base unscrews. The base has been conveniently designed to easily grip to undo from the machine instead of using the jug handle. It came with a glass jar attachment for grinding coffee or seeds and this too has an easy screw on/off base. The mixing bowl is very simple to attach. It does have small lock/unlock symbols but as it is completely clear it is easy to s...ee where it sits to lock or unlock. Also comes with slicing and grating discs and are very easy to use. I easily made cake mix with blade attachment and mixing bowl, I found I didn’t need to stop very often to scrape down the sides. The blender attachment is easy to lock on and I had no need to scape the side when making smoothies. Grinder works well, finer grind more time as usual but still very quick. I love the dial, pulse and two speeds. The book recommends what speeds to use. It has rubber suction cups to stick to bench tops and because of this it does have a little wobble with heavier foods like dough but for most other things is quite stable. The entire machine and attachments are very easy to clean. Overall a great kitchen utensil! I love it.

The main beef is the blender. The blender bowl has a shelf just above the blender blades. As a result, dry/semi-dry food cannot drop down into the blades and the blades spin with no effect.
Add liquid (but for pesto you do not want too much oil) and food starts to drop down. Fine if you want wet food such as soups but no good for drier blends.
Appears good in promotions, but do not bother purchasing.
