After spending a great deal of time researching food processors to replace my un-repairable
(much to my annoyance) old one I found the Braun Multiquick 7 (Kuchenmaschine K3000) on this site. Based on the reviews I read on this and other sites I purchased the machine on the Tuesday and received it on the Thursday from Germany.Two days!!
It was listed as 'used' but in new condition, boxed, with all accessories complete.
When I unpacked it I found I had two grating discs and no shredding disc but an email to the seller produced a replacement with in the following week. Amazing!
It was however unused and immaculate, just the box had been opened at some point and a UK power adaptor was included
The machine is so much more than a food processor and very very robust. everything is of a very high quality.
I particularly liked the stainless steel mixing bowl, beautifully engineered (as was everything)
and the glass goblet for blending.
It makes other brands look cheap and tatty in comparison.
I've used the mixing bowl and mixing attachment for cake making and found the variable speed great for folding in flour or beating eggs. If I had a criticism it would be that when creaming butter & sugar the mixture gets stuck around the central spindle but the shaped spatula supplied quickly scraped it back in the bowl.
The blade for the processor is very sharp and come with a special cover and if you're not careful chops up very small very quickly. All the discs store in a separate storage holder.
It does look a little dated but its the VW Golf of food processors.
Very pleased, a big thank you to the other reviewers.
