It is very convenient and easy to use.
The veggies in my salsa were more shredded than diced 🙁 it’s fine for making soups or salsa (as long as it you don’t mind the it not being pretty). I’m a little disappointed, i expected to never have to chop another veggie again.

Black & Decker FP1140BD 8-Cup Food Processor, Black : It works great overall, however if you’re making sunbutter especially, you need to add a liquid or some coconut oil to the shelled sunflower seeds in order for the processor to puree them (otherwise it gets clogged up underneath the blade & on the sides of the container – which i periodically stop & scrape it down & then continue on). I’ve even used my processor to easily shred bars of soap for homemade laundry detergent. The processor locks into place fine, but it is pretty loud.
I cook with a lot of fresh vegetables so decided to put it to the test and see how each different item would come out. Most items were ‘perfect’ but some, like green onions, were not at ‘pretty’ as when i cut them by hand but for cooking with they still are much quicker. For salads or baked potatoes, i still chop them by hand. I am now able to chop my vegetables is a mere fraction of the time it used to take me.Even if i just need to chop a small amount, it is still faster to use this product and wash it than doing it by hand. Would recommend to anyone who likes fresh vegetables.
I don’t like the seller (amazon) at all. However, the machine did what i wanted done, and guess what – it did even more than expected. I prefer to make my own butter. I have been for a while now. Usually i use a stand mixer and it takes about 20 minutes or so. This time i pulled out the processor and within five minutes i was done with the mechanical part, and was on to putting my butter away. I’ve only used it a couple of times, this being the first for butter, but i look forward to a lot of good use of it.
Very easy to use once you figure it out. I especially like the ease of getting this by ordering via amazon.
I’ve been slicing my veggies for dips and salads for a while. I tried using one of those washboard combo slicer grater things, but usually use a knife. Yesterday i decided to come into the 21st century and buy something to ease my labor. Years ago my wife had a food processor that was so complicated she never used it and finally gave it away. I wanted something easy to use and minimal cleanup. Well, today i went to target and there it was, marked down to $19. Anyway, it’s just what i wanted, easy to use, easy cleanup and cut my 15 -20 minute veggie cutting to mere seconds with a quick rinse between veggies. My only druther would be a little thicker slices.
This food processor works ok in a pinch and is ok for the money. The knob is kind of hard to turn on the pulse cycle. I would definitely not recommend this unit to anyone with arthritis or other joint problems.
This is my 3rd black and decker 8 cup food processor (in 15 years). They work great, the motor is powerful and the blades are simple. But they suffer form same problem as all appliances these days – cheap plastic breaks and then it is cheaper to replace entire unit than the piece that broke.
I have used this twice so far and really like it and looking forward to future uses. When they say sharp blades, they mean sharp blades. I varely bumped my pinky against a blade viola blood. So be very, very careful when cleaning (of course i don’t have a dish washer). I think i made a great investment and it will definitley going to save time and make it easier for these fibro hands.
It works better than anything i have had before.
Originally i had posted a negative review of this food processor because the lid was very difficult to lock into place, which was required for the unit to operate. Within a day of posting the bad review, i got the comment below from black & decker. I called them, and they offered to replace the entire unit. I was really surprised and impressed-i didn’t expect action on the manufacturer’s part. **update: i received a replacement unit from black & decker. I’ve only used it a few times so far, but it works well. A quick note on the assembly: this unit can be a little tricky and frustrating to assemble. To lock the food container onto the base, attach it and twist where the unlock/lock icons are on the base. You’ll find that the food container can attach and ‘click’ into place on other parts of the base, but the lid won’t lock into place if you don’t line the container up with the base icons.
I used to have a very and i mean very cheap food processor that just never seemed to work well enough. This works for all that i do. I don’t understand the poor reviews. Maybe people just did not follow instructions or were too rough with it?. The only issue i would see is over-filling it. It is powerful but you need to be careful with not over-stuffing it. Sometimes a small amount of water is needed to get things going. I make pancake batter, nicecream, and date balls with this thing.
This is a great little processor.
Love it and i got it on sale at amazo. . My daughter bought the same one weeks ago at target for $35. 00 i recommend this product.
No idea why this processor is getting bad reviews. It’s been a solid workhorse for me for 2 1/2 years so far, and i cook nearly every night. I use it to power through huge onions, chop up chicken for some recipes, as well as to mix up dough for homemade noodles and pizza crusts. It’s powerful, even mixing bread flour or durem wheat into super sticky dough is no issue. I see complaints that it doesn’t liquefy items easily, which i see as a huge plus. Other processors turn the bottom of the container to mush, while leaving the top untouched, this bad boy (with an occasional scrape down the sides with a spatula) beautifully chops a whole onion into evenly sized bits. It’s been awesome for me, but seemingly your miliage may vary.
