I Love my new machine! Great bargain. Bought it just before xmas as my Bosh mini hand blender broke down after only 18 months (750W)... and I needed an aid with xmas preparations. I've chosen #Philips as I trust the brand (I already have a juicer -I'm using it regularly for 6-7yrs, the kettle and a toaster), and it was very reasonably priced.
I've used most of the options so far. I'm so happy with the blades, my hummus is creamier than ever. I make lot of salads so shredding the vegetables it takes only seconds now :) Oh and that little grinder is a star! used it to grind coffee beans and to make my curry paste from fresh spices like ginger, garlic, chillies etc. I don't have a dishwasher but everything is so easy to clean and store. Good material quality and it doesn't take too much space on the work top, which was important for my tiny kitchen.
I've noticed the comments about poor manual but who needs to read instructions these days anyway? All those appliances are bit like smart phones, very intuitive. And if you used something similar before, you don't need to read any instructions. The colour coding is very helpful... just be careful when handling the blades, I got 3 cuts on first day of using it. Maybe just because I was too excited about the whole thing ;)

This food processor does everything my old Magimix one did, but was much much cheaper and is a neater, more compact and lighter model. I love it.

After much research on food processors I decided to buy this one. I am so happy I did. It's a great price and comes with loads of extras which others don't seem to have.
I've used it a few times a day since buying. It's great for blending soups, baby purees, making cakes, grating cheeses and stuff! Perfect. The mini chopper is a great extra. It's meant for nuts and things but I use it also if I need to make a small puree!! Really happy with this and it looks great too! Highly recommended.

This is a Which Best Buy food processor. This is the reason we chose it and we were not disappointed. It slices fruit and veg, mixes cakes etc and makes wonderful soups and smoothies. It is easy to use and (more importantly) easy to clean.

I did a lot of research before plumping for this one and I would like to correct some misinformation published in other reviews : Firstly, there is somewhere to stow the power cord - it just feeds into the base unit. Secondly, it takes about a minute to figure out how to store all the attachments in the bowl. The instruction leaflet is a bit poor but using a food processor is hardly rocket science.

Bottom line is, this is sturdy and versatile food processor which you can store away neatly.

Weak plastic product. I bought this new. On my first use, the plastic catch on the lid snapped requested for a replacement and the company sent me a used product. Not happy : (

I live in an apartment and was looking for a compact food processor. My last apartment was furnished and had a food processor as part of the amenities. The food processor was a a philips, was compact, powerful enough and sturdy. The best thing about it was that all the blades stored inside the bowl unit so you could just pack it all away. The plastic parts were sturdy, but even so I managed to chip some parts off of it. I used it for 5 years and it was used before I arrived and it was working great when I left for other realms. With such a positive experience - Philips was the first brand I looked at. I was only able to do my shopping online.

This model had the most accessories and power for the money while promising to be compact. So I bought it.

CONS:
1)Contrary to the last philips - the plastic on this one doesn't feel as sturdy. Likewise, the bowl and handle are separate pieces, rather than one piece which will probably be a weakness overtime and be prone to dirt and breakage.
2) The cutting blade in the last philips had plastic case around it for your and its protection. This model comes in a flimsy plastic packing case - like the plastic insert in a barbie doll package - that I guess you should hang onto for safety's sake but which is NOT made for long term use and will soon crack and be useless.
3) After much manoeuvring - I DID manage to get all of the blades and grating discs to fit inside the unit with the lid shut. While there is a picture in the manual that shows this to be possible - it isn't accurate (as the picture also shows the spatula and there is no way by any reach of the imagination that it could fit in the bowl) and the putting in of the objects is neither intuitive, neat, or easy. At one point I was actually afraid I was going to break the thing. Therefore - I don't recommend storing it together in the unit.
4) The plastic on the whole unit - the bowl, the kneading blade, everything - just feels really cheap.

Pros:
1)This really gives you the most attachments for the money and the wattage.
2)If you have the inclination- you can store all the blades in the unit
3) it does come with a blender and grinder attachment - though personally I would rather buy those separately and have a more sturdy and practically compact unit
You get a 2yr guarantee - so I guess it has to at least be durable enough to last that long and I guess with the bargain price - you can afford to buy another one after that.

In all, I'm disappointed, but for the price of the unit and the options it provides, can't justify giving it fewer stars. My overall assessment is that Philips took what they had as a good compact model that was durable and practical and replaced it with a cheap thing while throwing in a blender and grinder. If I could do it over again, I would buy a different model - Probably the bosch mcm 4006. But I would also suggest, if possible to see it in person first to check the quality of the parts.

UPDATE: APRIL 30, 2013 -
So I've been using the food processor about 3 times a week since purchasing it in December. I've used every attachment. Result: I love the compact size. It is still awkward to fit everything into the bowl (sans spatula) but once you figure it out it can be done. I'm loving the mini grinder - I didn't think I needed it, but am finding it useful all the time. Wear and Tear: The Color/speed Labels on the power knob have already completely worn off. My husband is more upset about this than I am - its pretty easy to figure out speeds - but all the same it doesn't look smart. The mini grinder bowl also fell on our tile floor. It has an internal stress crack, but is still in one piece. Also, a piece of plastic from the lid snapped off during use with the granulating attachment - in fact, the entire lid came off during operation and that is how the bit snapped off. The lid still closes and it doesn't prevent the machine from turning on - but it is a bit disconcerting and I'll be contacting product support.

I purchased this on the back of so many positive reviews from other customers. I have tried to blend soup with the blender and it leaks out of the top of the blender even when the jug is just half full. I am really disappointed with this product. It appears to be a design flaw rather than a one off as the soup leaks up between the jug and the lid and squirts out the sides. I'd be interested to know if any other customers experienced similar problems?
