Awesome Multi-functional Unit But...
I have loved using every function on this machine! I have 2 small child with allergies so I do a lot of food preparation. I use the blender every day for smoothies, until i dropped and broke the blending jug :( The blending bowl is great for delicious dips, homos and to puree baby food. The grater and slicer for vegetables- fantastic blade! The grinder mill is great to make almond meal and other nut/seed flour. All parts are easy to clean! My mum saw how much i used mine and just purchased the latest model. Unfortunately really hard to get repl...acement parts, even from overseas, found one jug in the UK but the jug alone was more than half the cost of the whole unit. Really miss our smoothies & icy poles especially as its summer! Would love any info on where to acquire new blending jug.
Good but could have been better
I have been using this for over a year. Its good but the plastic quality is bad. The blender jar broke after falling on the floor and the the other small jar is also showing cracks.If you are not looking for something long lasting then this is ok.The blade is good.
Super useful but difficult to store
Love this unit and can't live without it! Have used almost all the functions and blades it comes with. It works well, and the blender and mini processor is a huge bonus for me and space saver in the kitchen.
Only downside for me is the size - which is understandable due to its multifunctionality - but it does make it hard to store in a small kitchen.
Usage-wise however it is a lifesaver and if mine breaks down after a couple of years, I will buy the same one from Phillips!
Love it but...
Have had my food processor/blender for 3 weeks now, I love the food processor but after 3 uses of the blender the blade no longer spins so now have to return the whole device. Very disappointed as it's Christmas and I really need it and will have to wait weeks for a replacement.
Was a gift
My good friend in which I bought this for is so rapt-she loves this appliance. A good cook deserves a good appliance-can only enhance.
Just so happy that I cut her preparation time into slivers. Makes me smile every time when she tells me how unreal it is to use it.
Good food processor and blender
We loved this food processor / blender / milling combo. I'd regularly use the blender to make smoothies during summer. It's powerful enough to blend ice. Unfortunately, a few months ago I accidentally put some whiskey stones into the blender and it broke the blade attachment. I would have really liked to purchase spare parts so I could use the blender again, but I looked online and the new blade would cost half as much to purchase the entire set again. It lasted two years. I wasn't having any trouble with it - though you had to double check you'd put the blade attachment into the blender properly otherwise it would leak. A shame I broke it.

Perfect machine but
It is perfect processor for small pieces，and it is multi-function, sharp but the black resinous plastic on the handle of the bowls is poor quality. Today is my mother's birthday, I decided to make a small cake for her, when I assembled the bowl on the base, I found it was hard to undo, I tried, then the plastic handle was broken and difficult to find replacement.
I have had it for only 3 months, though I use the blender every day, but I really want to make more by the other parts which I have used just few times, and some parts are still new. It is really my ideal machine, the size, capacity and function.
Bought this processor few months ago..I cant use the main blender due to leaky blade stem..I have tried to contact the seller, as its still under warranty..but haven't got any positive reply..hopefully Philips can replace that part. I would recommend this product if Philips's customer care can sort this out soon.
Amazing Machine But..
I love this food processor, it's very powerful and diverse but my tool holder broke at the top when chopping potatoes with one of the discs..
Only had the machine for a little over 6 months now, but it's on Amazon. I still use the blender part everyday.
Very disappointing that I can't find replacement tools anywhere on the Philips website though for the tool holder.
Great little machine!
This is a great value food processor. It's compact and packs away very neatly in the cupboard, has loads of attachments and with the food processor and blender bowls it can pretty much do everything we need a food processor to do. The suction feet on the base are a great idea and work brilliantly. We've had our machine for over a year and it's been great. The only negative is that because it's a lower priced machine the plastic is not as good quality as other machines, so when we dropped the lid on a tiled floor it shattered and spare parts were very difficult to find.

Blender leaking. good only for 2 years
At the beginning we were quite happy about the machine (HR7762/90), but after 2 years (mixing only fruit smoothies, no ice or any hard products) the blender knife started to leak. I contacted Philips support in France and asked if I could buy the broken part. Their answer- no, I should send machine to repair and it would cost 85 EUR (crazy! price of new machine is 72-75 EUR). Very disappointing...
I have had my Phillips Food Processor for 2 years now. I use it everyday, to make Smoothies for breakfast and to grate, mix and blend for dinner. And to crush nuts and biscuits for baking. It is powerful enough for everything, and I love how I can put all the attachments in the dishwasher.
I really do put it through it's paces. The blade for the blender has broken, just this morning. I have been online to see if they have spare parts and I can buy a replacement for a small amount. I was happy with the customer service, and the fact that I don't have to replace the whole machine if one part has broken is a bonus.
Good processor but the blender hasn't lasted
Similar to a few other reviews, we have loved this processor and the blenders up until recently, but are really disappointed that the blender, after only 12 months, now leaks on use.
We are a family of two, so haven't given the processor too much work.
We picked it based on good reviews, but it really hasn't lasted.
How could I live without it?
I live in Slovakia Europe and you helped me to make up my mind and buy this product. It is great - I use it every day and it does its job perfect. It is powerful, quiet, not too big and relative cheap. I recommend this for 100%.

Good product but disappointed
I really like this food processor but am very disappointed that, in less than 2 years, the blender knife has started to leak through the 'screw' that attaches the blades to the bottom part (not very technical!). It now rubs against the base unit and has scratched it. Also, if I try to blend nuts it actually now undoes the blades from the blender jar and the nuts go everywhere. I gather this is happening because it is dragging against the base unit and causing it to come undone.
What a very versatile food processor at a low price
Last year I bought this Philip food processor for $99. What an excellent value for such a very versatile food processor. It is easy to use and easy to clean. It has a bowl, a blender and a grinder mill plus 5 different stainless steel disc inserts. I often quickly use it to grate vegetables. It makes cooking so much quicker. Great product!
Good product at a fair price
This is my first food processor and I'm very happy with it so far. I've had it for about 4 months now and use it regularly. I don't really use anything other than the bowl and dual metal blade insert to make things like dips, mashed cauliflower, cauliflower rice, smoothies and sorbets.
I attempted to use the jug to make a banana smoothie however the blades struggled with the frozen banana so I just stick to using the main bowl and dual blade insert, which is fine.
I love it
This unit is perfect for me. I use it everyday either for either the blender or processor (or both). This was a Christmas gift from my daughter and I love it.
partly excellent / partly poor
All blades are excellent, multi-functional, sharp.
Phillips have decided to use a poor quality black resinous plastic on the base of the blenders (bowls), it wears out after only 6 months of low usage. It has a 2 year warranty, but Phillips are reluctant to cover the bowls, even though by Australia Consumer laws they have to.
Plastic shoot cracked when grating cheese.
poor quality plastic wearing out after only 6 months
Excellent customer service
I recently purchased this food processor and it has done everything i have tried from grating to smoothies to grinding coffee and making fresh curry paste. I can't fault it especially for the price. I also lost the main spindle inside the processor and phillips have sent a replacement free of charge!

Hi there, Sona.
Thank you for asking this question here. Just to be sure, you're asking how easy it is to clean the appliance and its accessories correct? All the Food Processor accessories included in your box are dishwasher safe.
Before you clean the appliance, unplug it. Make sure that the cutting edges of the blades, discs, and the inserts do not come into contact with hard objects. This may cause the blade to get blunt. The cutting edges are sharp. Be careful when you clean.
1 Clean the motor unit with a moist cloth.
2 Clean the other parts in hot water (< 60ºC) with some washing-up liquid or in a dishwasher.
3 Store the product in a dry place.
Quick cleaning: you can follow the following steps to clean the food processor bowl and blender jar easier. Make sure that the blade is assembled in the bowl if you clean the food processor bowl.
1 Pour lukewarm water (not more than 0.5 liters) and some washing-up liquid into the food processor bowl or blender jar.
2 Place the lid on the food processor bowl or blender jar, and then turn it clockwise to fix it.
3 Turn the speed selector to P until the bowl or jar is clean.
4 Let the appliance run for 30 seconds or until the food processor bowl or blender jar is clean.
