Nice little unit
I bought one of these 4 months ago, and it's been great. I chose it for it small size, light weight and the small chopping bowl that came with it. I use it for grating, chopping, and it does those tasks well, and at a low price. I have never used the blender as I have a dedicated one.
I would not use it as a blender or dough mixer though; it's small and light and I don't think it would do a good job doing that. But when I want to make hummus and don't have any tahini, the small chopper bowl does a great job making tahini and the large bo...wl does a great job chopping chickpeas, garlic and other ingredients. It also grates and slices veg good, and I like the fact it's solid metal discs, not inserts that fit into plastic discs (that could discolour, chip or break) like my parents cheaper processors. But the speed and power don't seem convincing to me enough to bother using the blender for any frozen or hard ingredients, so haven't tried that at all. Don't buy it for a blender, or dough mixing. I think the processor will last for ages if you only use it for veg chopping, grating and mixing. Low price for a competent food processor is how I'd sum it up. Compact, light, so far reliable.
Essential item for kitchen
We have used this food processor on a regular basis and has not let us down. It's easy to clean and easy to operate! Was very affordable for the quality of the processor. It has many attachments included. The instruction book wasn't fantastic but the attachments are easy enough to work out.
Simple to use
More informative booklet would have been helpful
Have used all discs and they are great. probably won't fuss with the chip cutter again but still ok. Great value for money and does everything I want. easy to clean and all dishwasher safe. reliable brand and seems durable. I use it almost every day and I must say i'm very happy with my purchase
inexpensive, lots of "extras"
chip disc not great
Questions & Answers
I wanted to buy this model HR7762 but it is unavailable in Australia so had to get the HR7510 instead. I had hoped the chip/French fry disk would be compatible. I know it is not sold as a supported accessory, but can anyone tell me if the disks are the same size and any chance it could work? (And if I would need to buy a different shaft to go with it or not?). Thanks
I just received the Philips Viva food processor yesterday. Today used the blender for the first time and its emitting smoke. Please advise.
