Chops and purées vegetables and nuts really well. It just takes a little longer and is noisier than i woul like.
We’re happy overall with this food processor. It’s not fancy, but it works fine and is very inexpensive. The only complaint is that it’s so darn loud. It’s so loud that we can’t use it at night for fear of waking up neighbors in the next apartment, and whenever my wife is about to turn it on she has to warn me first so i don’t mistakenly think an f-15 jet fighter just landed in our kitchen.
A bit loud, but works great. Here are the specifications for the Black & Decker BLACK:
- Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
- Stainless Steel Chopping Blade, Slicer, Shredder
- 8-Cup Work Bowl – Plent of room to work with
- Food Chute with Pusher – Helps guide food towards the slicing/shredding disk while the processor is going, for consistent results
- Dishwasher-Safe Removable Parts
- Safety Interlocking System – Blades operate only when the lid is securely attached to the bowl
I like it cause it gets the job done , only thing its very noisy and pieces of veggies or cheese etc get stuck under the lid while processing but it works for me worth the money.
Noisy, but does the job well. Removing bottom center post assembly for complete cleaning can be difficult, if you don’t lube the snap-in locking clips (3) on bottom assembly with drop of olive oil, but if done, this assembly is easy to remove for periodic cleaning, since some food gets down the vertical post tube inside the blade unit. Over time, the locking clips tend to dry and become sort of frozen, preventing assembly removal. Remove this center post assembly by turning the large extended three tabs under bottom of bowl counter-clockwise. Easier to clean and use than the old and pricey cuisinart processors. Great device for making frozen banana creams with any flavors desired. First liquify one ripe banana and then add natural flavor, such as raw carob powder, then add chopped frozen bananas (into small 1/3 inch thick) slices. In no time you’ll have a tasty desert or much like ice cream snack.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Just what I needed!
- Inexpensive and very noisy
- Food Processor
) it doesn’t turn onthis model has two safety features. The lid has to be securely fastened and the 8 cup container has to be secured in the base. I made the same mistake and called the 1-800 number. She told me to secure everything and i proceeded to explain nicely that i had done that. She humored me and asked me to try one more time. There are tiny little buttons that have to be triggered as a safety precaution. ) you can see food stuck in the bottom external piece that you can’t get out because that piece doesn’t removeevery piece of food container is removable, including the handle. That’s what make it so easy to clean. I always warn everyone in the house that i am about to turn it on. Otherwise, i will scare the s^*t out of everyone. You are literally using it next to the wall.
Just the right size for a small kitchen. Just the right power for everyday cooking.
My old one broke and i thought i was ordering the same thing but it has new features that make it better.
Can’t say enough good things about this. Easy controls (i give it 5 *’s just for that) this processor is a work horse. I’ve given it a workout and it has not let me down. Can’t beat the price for a brand name appliance.
The item is just as described. I love it i can chop vegetables and use it for many other mixtures and blends.
As i believe other reviewers have noted, this is not a water-tight food processor. However, it works great for heavier sauces and solid foods. If you hold the lid down tightly, you can do thinner sauces with minimal leakage (remember to put the tamper in too. I make chopped salads, flours, and sliced veggies without any trouble. There are only two people in my house, so the size is perfect. If i were cooking for three or more, it might be a bit small. Note that this is not a high-powered processor. Sauces will not be the creamy smooth they are on your favorite food blogs or in cookbooks. They will be edible, but not great.
I read several reviews before i decided on this product and noticed many remarked on how loud this was. I did not find that to be true. Very easy to operate, clean and store. There is a space under the motor to store the cord so that it is out of the way. This is the first food processor i have owned that did not come with a plastic blade in addition to the steel blade. I wish it had one but hopefully the steel blade will work for making pie crusts and some cookie recipes i have. Only had this product about a month so if any problems arise i will be back to list them.
I got this from a local outlet store because it was only $16. Thought i would come on amazon and review it as i usually come to amazon for reviews for purchases even if i end up buying it somewhere else. It works reallly well and i would have given it five stars except for how loud it is. I’m pretty sure a jet engine is quieter than this food processor.
I use this more than my blender. It came quickly, it works properly, it’s easy to clean. I use it to chop veggies, i’ve tried to use it to make pie dough. You have to have super cold hard butter for that to work, which i didn’t know. But it works wonderfully for making banana ice cream.
This is such a great food processor. I upgraded to a larger one and couldn’t be happier. It is a quality product that works wonderfully. I feel like i cook so much more since i got it.
I had a b&d mini processor for over twenty years that i loved. A small piece of it broke, and i was unable to find a replacement part. I read reviews of ‘better’ (i. , more expensive) brands, and chose to purchase another b&d, as it had a grating blade. It is almost identical to my old one, but with a larger capacity bowl. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
This is the perfect size kitchen food processor. It works exactly as described and i am very happy with this item.
The first thing i used this model for was to make sauerkraut. There really ought to be separate slicer/grater blades, because this combination ‘shredder’ blade leaves large pieces and much, much, smaller grated pieces, and all sized in between. Iow, the pieces are not of consistent size. I also discovered that the food chute is not level with the top, so pieces get stuck between the bottom of the chute and the side of the cover. That means that every time i use it, i have to get a kitchen knife and clean out that small area. The other thing i think is odd is that the chute is at the back of the processor, so you have to reach across to put food down the chute. The clincher, the one real annoyance for me, is the 2 foot cord. I have to move the processor to the receptacle every time i use it, while every other appliance i have has a 4 foot or better cord and i can just pull them to the front of the counter, plug in the cord, and use them.
It chops and grinds quickly and quietly.
I bought this a few weeks ago and so far it has been worth it. It rices cauliflower and shreds zucchini and carrots in a matter of seconds. I’m planning on making nut butters and milk in the future as well. It’s incredibly easy to clean, plus taking it apart and putting it back together doesn’t take long at well. The only downside is that it’s so loud. I’m a little embarrassed to use it when people are around. But it works so quickly that it really doesn’t matter because the loudness is over in a matter of seconds. Okay, follow-up review: i love it just as much, if not more. I will never shred a sweet potato again.
I cut up my vegetables for homemade soups. I also cut up fruits and vegetables for twin grandsons. I rinse off parts and wipe dry.
