A total waste of money
I am am not at all happy with this processor or its attachments, which are difficult to to put together, they are also difficult to clean because there are many inaccessible areas. Furthermore, the other bits , like the part which needs to be slotted in so it can start, are really fiddly and difficult to assemble and wash. I also have a problem with the level of noise it makes when in action. There should be a warning, alerting clients to the fact that it is EXTREMELY loud. Surely it is a health hazard? Who designed such a non functional appliance? When I turn it on, I need to leave the room. Not a product I would ever buy again!

Ok to average - it lasted 3 years and died
Firstly what I liked . The motor is powerful and it whizzed through just about anything I put in it with ease. The cerated blades on the chopper/shredder and al the dicing slicing have remained super sharp for the several years I've owned this product.
Now for the bad . It's loud , and I mean really loud, annoyingly loud , loud as in it's the single loudest kitchen appliance I own and by quite a bit. The biggest downside is the bowl is thin cheap plastic. I dropped the bowl onto the kitchen bench from about 40cm and it put a large split up ...the bowl which I repaired with a glue gun..it looked unsightly but meant I could still use the food processor. When using the dicing /slicing discs not all of the food ended up in the bowl below , some got stuck between the blade and the edge of the bowl. It wasn't a lot , just enough to be a bit annoying. The undoing of the machine was when making New York Pizza dough .... New York pizza dough is made in a food processor rather than a traditional cake style mixer with a dough hook ...no idea why but all the recipes ask you to use a food processor to "whizz" the dough. In this area the kitchen whizz really struggled - the sticky dough mixture meant the machine was out of it's depth . The first time I used it the blade slowed considerably . it almost came to a stand still - which of course isn't good for the electric motor which was struggling to cope. On the second time I used it for the same purpose , it burnt out the motor. The whole thing ended up in the bin as it's out of warranty. Whatever I buy next I'll be looking for a 1000W or greater motor and wouldn't buy a Russel Hobbs again until a generation or two later if the reviews are ok. I also ask for it to be turned on in the shop to I could listen to how loud it is . To be fair I presume the machine would have gone on for years more if I hadn't of tried the dough mix which was obviously too much for the kitchen whizz, but given I'm getting into all sorts of new recipes it's no use having a kitchen whizz that cant cope with tougher jobs. In summary , for my use , the machine wasn't up to the job and therefore I wouldn't buy it again , I'll be looking more closely at the bowl in particular to see how durable the plastic seems. I read other reviews on this site and it seems breaking the bowl through dropping it is an issue for some users regardless of the brand, so looking for a powerful motor and a quality bowl by putting several bowls in the shop side by side is a consideration for anyone buying a kitchen whizz regardless of the brand

The worst appliance we’ve ever owned
You need a university degree in appliance building to be able to put it together, and it’s so loud you can’t use it outside of normal working hours otherwise you’ll get noise complaints from your neighbours.
Once you do eventually work out how put it together, it can’t even crumb biscuits let alone chop anything substantial.
We’ve just decided today it’s better off in the bin than taking up space in our cupboard. Good riddance.
- Multi Processor
I can't see what the negative reviews are about, I think for $80 it's amazing. I've used it a few times and think it's very easy to assemble and clean. Can't wait to explore more.
Purchased in at Amazon for $68.
So poorly designed can't get the lid on to operate. Had I read the reviews before purchase I wouldn't have bought it. Can't get a refund because I lost the reciept. It's going in the bin. They have discontinued this product so no one else will waste their money. Will never buy another Russell Hobbs product ever again
Purchased in at Big W for $120.
The bigger bowl is very difficult to assemble and when you do its not easy to get it to work......the clips have broken off and its so noisy you need ear plugs to use it....Also as far as the blades are concerned they do not process food like cooked meat i.e chicken or pork into uniform sizes its either mush and lumps.........I would not recommend this product. Buy a FP that actually does what it claims to do
Purchased in for $200.

Worst Food Processor
Noisy like a jackhammer and it moves across the bench from the vibration. The big bowl does not work and won't fit onto the machine as the piece connecting it is jammed and won't come out, so can only use the small bowl. My old machine different brand had for years never had a problem. The Russell Hobbs will be going into the bin and will look for something better and quieter.
Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I use mine for everything! Blending frozen fruit - great. Grating veggies - no issues. Kneading - perfect. Love it and tell it everytime it's used
Purchased in at trademe for $50.
I haven't used this processor that much and besides being very noisey, trying to fit the different size bowls is really difficult. The levers that start the blade in motion are made of plastic and have now broken. Was going to send it back under warranty but realised it had run out by 1 month. Will bin it and buy something much better.

Waste of money
Need ear plugs to use this blender, it’s soo loud, a waste of money. Takes forever to get the lid on and in its working position, Definitely stay away. Invest in a better product.

Broken within 3 months!
Poorly designed. When grating cheese large chunks (I mean really large) get stuck between the grating disk and the top of the processor. You have to dig them out with a knife. No way of cleaning parts of it, as you cannot get your fingers into the small spaces.
The main column that drives the grating disc snapped whist grating cheese, within 3 months of buying it.
it doesn't work properly, its noisy, parts can't be cleaned, and it breaks easily.
Don't buy it!

Very, very loud
I cannot believe that this processor is still on the market. I bought this as it was on special came home and putting it together is a nightmare, you need a university degree to work this thing out. I was so frustrated that i left it and tried again several months later where i finally worked out how everything clicks together only to start using it and shocked the level of noise this thing makes. I have to use this when nobody is home and i have to block my ears because the noise literally hurts my ears. It is ridiculous how loud this thing is, our chainsaw is not as noisy.
INFERIOR PRODUCTS - DO NOT PURCHASE RUSSELL HOBBS
INFERIOR PRODUCTS - DO NOT PURCHASE RUSSELL HOBBS
Every time I purchase a Russell Hobbs item I have had to get it replaced. Every item I have purchased a Russel Hobbs item it barely lasts 3 years by which time the warranty conveniently expires. Their items are not durable and definitely do not last even with low domestic usage. Be very aware that you will be purchasing an inferior item that only looks good on the outside. They contain very inferior mechanisms on the inside. ZERO star rating.
