I am very disappointed in the performance of this food processor. I have used it several times a week to finely shred vegetables and fruit. On several occasions it has emitted smoke. It has yet to actually stop working but I feel it is only a matter of time. In addition the base is so light that is actually jumps up and down when chopping carrots. I was attracted to the model due to interchangeable processing, mixer, and weight attachments and space saving advantages.. I do like this feature but notice smoke when using the mixer attachment. DeLonghi would be advised to redesign this model
Based on all the glowing reviews I purchased this item. Looks good but fragile. Motor fine, but blade broke after grating one carrot first use. It suddenly just snapped. That was it. A huge disappointment. The plastic that holds the blade together virtually broke in two pieces. I hardly used any pressure while pushing the carrot through when suddenly it snapped. I inquired about returning only the part but Overstock said the whole machine had to be sent back for credit. The part could have had a defect, however I would not recommend this for heavy duty or hard vegetables like carrots and beets. Machine is neat in appearance and easy to operate. The case and base is all plastic and only the blades are metal. The feeder hole is also much too small so carrots and veggies need to be sliced thinly in order to go through.
I love the food processor. I have been wanting one for a very long time and finally decided on this one. The day I received it, I made Hummus and the processor was everything I expected. I have used it for many more things now and love having the blender without having to have yet another base for it and I also love having weight measuring in the base of the unit. I have had this product about 2 months and use it often. I haven't had any problems with it at all.

This Food Processor met my expectations. It really seems so expensive. I can't believe I got for under! It is quite and powerful! The blades are so sharp and the cuts are perfect. The blender blends sooooo perfect and fast. The smoothies are so smooth I can drink out of a small straw. I am so glad I dumped my ninja and went for the Delonghi...it is a work horse!
