We love this food processor. It is our first, and we did a good deal of research before purchasing. America's Test Kitchen ranks it as their number one pick, and the brand is very reliable according to consumer reports.
According to us--we are so happy with this purchase! It's very easy to use, not too noisy, and has made quick work of everything we have thrown at it, from my husband's wonderful pesto recipe (which now uses much less oil than when we used the blender) to chopping chocolate bricks for our homemade ice cream. Everything is dishwasher safe, so when you use every one of your blades to make an incredible pizza, the clean up is fast!
It also comes with a DVD which we watched before using it, incredibly helpful for our first food processor! We love it and highly recommend it.
this item is absolutely great and I hope to keep it forever. Other people should seriously consider this and purchase one
