Before buying this product, I looked at lots of reviews on Amazon, some were good, some weren't, and it took me a long time to make up my mind. I had a very old Kenwood processor which still just about worked, but it couldn't chop nuts up very small, which I really wanted a gadget to do. In the Which magasine, I read that the Bosch processor chopped nuts up well, so decided to risk it, despite the bad reviews. I am very pleased with it - it grates quicker and better than my old Kenwood (which must be about 20 years old), chops up nuts really well, and does all says it will. And it is much cheaper than any other processor I've seen! The instruction guide could be clearer, but with a bit of patience, it can be worked out.
