Bought this with high hopes, but early on when i used the Julienne attachment it wouldn't push down on the spindle far enough and ended up chopping all the little grey plastic dots off on the plastic plunger attachment that you push/guide the food down the spout with. Ok, fine, it still worked, but then when i went to grate cheese the other day, a ball of mozzarella, so not all that hard in density, the machine started making a terrible noise. Stopped it straight away, and when i opened it the grating attachment had bucked against the resistanc...e of the cheese and had snapped off bits of the plastic from the middle of the lid, so can't use it at all now; also chopped into the bottom of the funnel bit where you feed the food into. Called customer service, need to buy a new lid, but my concern is if it happens again it will be a waste of money. Very disappointed.
Food processor my eye!
This food processor was great for three weeks but stopped working suddenly without a reason. I have a minimal budget and if this is the case for you too,do not loose your receipt! It seems to be a pattern as the same thing happened to my sisters unit. The design is pretty below par as the slicing blades sit way to far from the chute which means you end up with un cut chunks you need to do by hand which defeats the purpose! It is a pain to put together after a clean for use, don't we buy these things to speed up and improve our cooking? Bottom line : A waste of $310 and another useless appliance taking up space. I should have read a review here first!

Machine is dead after 5 years.
I bought this processor because I thought it would last considering it cost nearly $400. After finally realising it was tripping the safety switch for a long time it is now completely dead. It was used once a week on average. Its just over 5 years since I bought it. Very disappointed.
Questions & Answers
How can I get the adjustable top blade to move.....it looks jammed !! Hardly turning in any direction !
The variable height blade got stuck....won't adjust by turning the knurled base neither clockwise or anti-clockwise
I can’t get the universal S blade to stay in the correct position, every time I try to turn the machine on the blade pops up and starts spinning around the top of the spindle. Have tried multiple times and pressed firmly down on the blade when attaching to the spindle. can anyone let me know how to fix this?
Hi Emma C,
