I really like the grips on the bottom that help it stick to the counter during chopping. I know this item is safe and not going to crash to the floor.
I received this food processor for Christmas and tried to chop of vegetables for my stuffing. It took a long time for it to chop of the vegetables but the carrots wouldn't not chop. I kept processing trying to chop the carrots but my other vegetable just turned to a puree because the carrots wouldn't process. I ended up having to pick chunks of carrot out by hand. My daughter got this for me because the bowl on my old Black & Decker has a crack in the bottom where it locks in place. I will use it till I can
I replaced my less expensive food processor with this one when I couldn't find a replacement for the cracked bowl. I was attracted to this model because it offered a wide-mouthed chute and this is indeed a nice feature. However, I find it cumbersome when it is necessary to stir the contents being processed. I totally understand the importance of the safety features, but this multiple system is a bit overboard.
The piece that holds the blade on does not lock into place and keeps coming undone. It does not process anything, just pushes everything to the sides of the bowl. Frustrating and useless in the end.
