A great inexpensive kitchen gadget. Makes very light work of all that's asked of it. Blitzes any cooked veg to liquid in seconds, ideal for soup or curry making. 4 suction cups on the base keep it solid during use, it doesn't move a jot. Most important of all, it doesn't leak out of the top when liquidizing like many other blenders do.
NB. If you want a spare seal for the jug base (I did, just in case it wears out) you have to buy a blade/seal kit from the Kenwood shop, it's the only place you can get them for this model. The part number is 5041179750283 & costs £2.50 plus £5.24p&p.

What can you say about a food processor? Well, most food processor blades are symmetrical - that is, where one blade goes on spinning, the other follows. So every so often, you have to shake up the mixture to ensure that the blades have new stuff to cut.
On this one, the cutting blades are different heights and different angles. This forces the stuff in the bowl to mix and makes sure that you put the stuff in, switch it on, and it is evenly treated. A very good replacement for previous food processors

I bought this a couple of weeks ago - it's been in daily use since, a great, compact food processor which does not use up a large footprint on my limited worktop space. I just wish I could find a mini grinder/mill attachment as I'd really like to be able to prepare fresh herbs etc for freezing as well as grinding coffee beans for my daily 'fix'! Pastry, batter, scones, biscuits, cakes, marinades, minced/ground meat - the list goes on - I have to admit that it's made me more interested in preparing good, fresh, tasty food. The metal blade does a good job on chopping up herbs in quantity, I've not tried it on coffee beans as I'm a bit worried that I might blow the motor; maybe someone can settle my mind on that one. Overall, I'd rate this machine 100% on current usage and 95% on unknown quantity as I'm sure that with time, I'll get to know its limitations.... I bought this from Amazon Direct and it was delivered within 24 hours - just ace.....

I was amazed how compact this processor was and that it still does everything you could want. It has not got a dough hook but then I didnt want it to make dough. It chops, slices and grates and that was my prime reason for getting it. Well done Kenwood you have come up trumps again

There is little one can say about food processors nowadays. They have been around such a long time that the functionality is well worked out and pretty standard across the board.
The motor is fairly quiet - not silent but quieter than my last one although it does give off that new motor smell that hopefully will disappear with time. The last thing you need when cooking is the smell of burning lubricant - it totally ruins the mood.

However one which I would like to point out which I think is just brilliant is the knife unit at the bottom of the blender twists off. This is brilliant for cleaning and the one thing that drove me crazy about my last one. Excellent!

Bought this to replace the food processor add-on of a hand blender (the rest of it works well, it's just the food processor bowl that developed a fault). So, I thought, I didn't need an all-in-one device again, just a new food processor. So I bought the Kenwood FPP225 and it's been a revelation. One of the main things I needed was a large capacity device and this main bowl has a whopping 2.1litre capacity. So many others are way smaller than this and it would mean I could only slice / chop in batches, increasing food preparation time.

The part that houses the motor is hefty, though not too heavy. The case is metal and there are four rubber feet, that aren't quite suckers, but at least stop it sliding over your worktop. The plastic used in the mixing bowl and blender is sturdy enough to last a lot of use. There are a lot of extras in the box, and finally I find a slicing attachment that does a proper job of slicing. I've tried various kitchen gadgets (many, many mandolins) to slice a lot of veg thinly and quickly; none of them have worked very well. I don't have to spend time with a sharp knife and a chopping board any more.

There are two selectable speeds with a clockwise clicks of the dial and a 'pulse' setting with a left turn. The motor is actually reasonably quiet in use and I quickly made a pesto from scratch in under 30 seconds. Slicing veg is also easy, though do remember to not use your fingers to push veg down the feed tube as the blades are sharp!

Noe: the removable blade (and all the cutting edges) of the food processor is very sharp from the outset, it easily sliced through the scrubbie I was using to clean it all before using. Also the bowl locking system is quite stiff to undo, I had to push the unit against the worktop wall and then force it anticlockwise to release the bowl. Whether this will get easier with more use remains to be seen, but I think I'll get the hand of it quite quickly.

This will get a lot of use and mean I can try out new recipes I would have thought twice over.

Bought this to replace a larger model that had stopped working. This one works just as well as the larger, more expensive model.

This is an excellent machine for the price. Have used it to make several batches of soup and also for pastry. It slices and grates in seconds and is easy to clean. would recommend.

I chose this Kenwood food processor as by the time I had paid delivery on a cheaper processor it was the same price as the Kenwood. I have since seen nearly the same model in a supermarket a little bit cheaper in white, but very superficially I wanted silver as it is out on the work top. I unpacked the product and it was clear how it fitted together without having to intensively read the instructions, it also looks really good on the counter - I have had comments from friends! I have not used a food processor before but have watched many an episode of Jamie Oliver so thought I would manage it - everything locks together really nicely and the dial is really simple to use it's pretty powerful despite not being excessively costly and has made light work or everything I have put in, there are also handy suckers that stick well so it doesn't travel around. It also cleaned very easily even when I made hummus which sticks to everything usually!

All in all good product, looks great and feels more expensive than it was to be honest!

So far it's saved me several hours in the kitchen (chops onion, celery and peppers well), makes great crumble mix and cakes and saved a batch of soup that went wrong (still don't know why it went wrong have been making it to the same receipt for years) thanks to the blender. Oh and loads of other things I've used it for ......... but still playing so lots to try still. One thing I did love it that its so easy to clean. Last processer seemed to have lots of 'nooks and crannies' that you could never get the soap bubbles or water out of - this one is easy to wash and dry :)
