The grater has such small holes it is very difficult to grate carrots. Instructions say you shouldn't run it for more than 1 minute all other processors we have owned have no such limitations
JUST STOPPED WORKING
Have been using this processor which was given to me as a gift for a couple of years no worries but all of a sudden just won't go! Have tried using the all the attachments but to no avail
Purchased in November 2017.

Great Multi Purpose Blender
This is all in one blender option and it is can be used for grating, cutting, making juices etc. I would recommend this to eveyone looking for all in one food processor and blender
Poor quality, noisy and burning smell
Bought it in The Good Guys in 2019. After few days FDP641WH it was returned to the shop because of generating extreme noise and also burning smell. It was then replaced by model FDP642BK. However, it lasted less than 11 months after the jug/blender stopped working. On 11/02/20 the product was sent for repair through the Good Guys. On 28/02/20, after beating egg whites the egg beater became stuck and could not be pulled out. I would not recommend it.

Easy to process food. I do a lot of cooking and process my onions, carrots, capsicums ect all together in the processor instead of having to grate everything by hand. Works well, has suction caps at the bottom so that it will be sturdy on the cupboard whilst processing. Has quite a lot of attachments which allows you to use as needed. Very easy to make my own dough.
Very Handy to have.
Blender wouldn't work on first use. Fitted processor and it worked. Refitted blender and persevered. Seemed to lock into place but still dead. Examined all locking points and on pressing tiny red plastic part, it and metal spring dropped out. I don't know if this is the cause of it. It working but doubt it would have any durability even if it hadn't come out. I agree with other reviews of Kenwood machines that the spindle on the processor doesn't seem to fit properly. I'm a serious food processor user and liked the idea that it came apart so i...t could be thoroughly cleaned. I'm thinking that this ability is also a disadvantage. It was a gift and I now have the decision of whether to tell the giver or make the LONG trek to a distant repairer. My first and last Kenwood and very disappointed.
didn't last, cheep plastic materials
Bought it in Harvey Norman in 2017, it lasted less than 2 years, after making a cream for a cake, the detachable drive shaft became deformed so the lid couldn't be locked any more. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
I was pretty happy when I found this Kenwood on special at Harvey Norman. Paid under $200 for it! However I threw the machine away about a week ago. I bought this Kenwood more than 2 years ago, maybe in 2016/2017 and it didn’t last. The motor burnt out after I used it to puree my pumpkin soup. I was so surprised that it broke as I was always a fan of Kenwood! My husband had to take the base outside as you could smell the smoke and plastic burning. I did use the blender on a weekly basis, however I also use my nutribullet every morning and that still works! Not a great appliance.
Amazing and a real time saver!
Excellent food processor making meal time quicker. Attachments are of great quality & save me soo much time especially grating, slicing etc. Love that all attachments, as well as lid & bowl can go into dishwasher.
Purchased in June 2018.
Where’s the storage??
I decided on this food processor as it seemed to have a lot of options, which is just what I need. It seems to be a reasonable value processor/blender. I’ve taken it all out of the box and was soo disappointed to find that there’s no storage compartment for all the bits and bots. This is going to mean a cupboard overhaul to find a drawer to fit all the parts, large and small! Yet to try the machine, once I do I’ll put another review in.
Great product but only a matter of time before parts are lost
Did my research by reading lots of reviews and bought this for my wife. She is super impressed so far with the quality and its versatility. She loves the fact that it does so much and does it well. Good to see that Kenwood makes an affordable product that is a kitchen must. Only gripe is the parts will probably be lost or misplaced as there are so many and nowhere to store them. Wish this was a standard inclusion for such products.i hope Kenwood read such reviews and take note.

Love the large capacity of the bowl. Allows me to make 3 & 4 batches of one recipe at a time. But still works great for smaller amounts too. I am using the grating and slicing blades more often now due to the larger capacity and ability to cook in bulk. The two different sizes on the feeding tube are great at stopping smaller size food slipping sideways when grating and slicing. The blender is a bit fiddly to pull apart and wash. I don't have a stand mixer so will appreciate the whisk attachments when I need to whip cream at Christmas time. Compact size of the power unit is one of my favourite features. It is easy to wipe clean and store away.
Use it everday
I love my Kenwood processor, it's the best. multi functional and easy to clean and reuse with in minutes. I can go from making hummus to muffins in a matter of a couple of minutes by simply rinsing and drying. The size of the processor is perfect to mix muffins and the blender is great for a family of 4 to have smoothies in the morning.
I really dont like this for what I need ot for. Its now worthless to me.
I need it for making garlic sauce.
The problem with this it heats up right under the bowl from the first use.
When making garlic sauce it cant get warm the heat curtled it.
I made my husband buy kenwood as I had an older version kenwood multi pro which was amazing.
Sadly this one is no good I have to try and take it back or somthing as its rubbish.
Also its says its 1000 watt ...My old 750 watt was much faster and I believe more powerful than this. I really wanted to love it, but sadly I hate it so much..
Questions & Answers
I can’t remove the beaters from the dual whisk, says gently pull them free, they won’t come out with gentle pulling and I don’t want to break them.
how do i stop big pieces of vegies going over the edge of the graters into the bowl. I was making coleslaw yesterday and ended up with big chunks of cabbage and carrot going in the bowl! i used different discs and it happened with all of them.
My FDP 641 WH food processor plastic lid clip that locks the lid into position broke off. How do I replace the lid and container?
