In this case, you get what you pay for
on 26 February 2016
This food processor is a good illustration of getting what you pay for. It's not terrible, but it's not the reliable kitchen workhorse I was hoping for. The main blades leave a big gap between themselves and the edge of the container, meaning that you have to do a lot of scraping down to get a quality blend on softer ingredients. Making sauces in small quantities is difficult as a result.
The hardware hasn't been designed with dishwasher in mind, either. There's a lot of pockets in the undersides of the components, which leads to a lot of collected water when run through a dishwasher cycle.
It's not a bad food processor, but I'm probably going to end up replacing it with a more expensive model out of frustration. I was originally drawn to the Kenwood because of the price, but it seems like a false economy now.
