I assumed that a food processor advertised as 7-cup would have a usable capacity of 7 cups. Such a huge disappointment to unpack this item and find the usable capacity was more like 2 cups. This made the processor unusable for my needs. The good news is, other than having to pay $XX.00 for return postage, the entire return process was very simple and efficient. Unlike many other company return policies, credit was issued to my account the same day the item was received in Overstock warehouse. Thanks Overstock!
The description failed to mention that all the parts might not be included. This processor new comes with 2 sizes of bowls, 7 cups and 3 cups, but the one I received only came with one size, 7 cups. After receiving the product I went to *** and they had the same item brand new for only $$$ more. So by time I paid for shipping I saved only $$$ and I have a refurbished machine instead of new. I should have looked around locally first before making purchase.

The body is heavy duty and works perfectly. However, I'm a bit dissapointed in the thin flimsy plastic of the actual container. I just don't think it's going to hold up well.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I can't imagine that it will hold up for years to come. It seems nothing is made to last anymore.

I am always nervous buying something that's been 'refurbished', but this was such a good price I couldn't pass it up. My previous processor was 15 years old, still working, but taking up too much storage space so I needed to down-size. This is just the right size, works beautifully, stores nicely and came 2 days after I ordered it! Wow! Just can't say enough how great the quality and shipping of O.co products are!

A solid well built machine smooth running. Easy to clean only has 4 parts to wash extra attachments to this would really be a plus consider buying.

I found the product description well written. The processor arrived promptly and in excellent condition. I chose the 7 cup size as that just about does it for all of my small household. It's a great machine and the process of getting it was so convenient.
When we purchased the refurbished food processor I was a bit nervous that we were gambling and it would stop working, but this little gem gets used several times a week (and up until our recent purchase of a stand mixer, we made all kinds of bread and pizza dough in it) and is still going strong. In retrospect, I would have bought a 9-cup, but the 7-cup is a good compromise if you have limited storage.
I love most of this processor, it does a tidy quick seamless job at slicing, shredding & chopping. Food does get stuck in the double rings of the lid, annoying. Also there is only 1 choice in the size of slicing & shredding, it really could use an extra disc for smaller shred & larger slice, other than that, it's been great!
I had another food processor for over 25 years and needed to replace it. The last one was a top of the line product and served me very well. I purchased this Kitchenaid processor really because I do like Kitchenaid products. I was a bit disappointed with the bowl size, but it works very well. It is more difficult to assemble than my last one and that can be a bit irritating, but I'm 64 and things are generally more difficult than they were in the past anyway. In other words, its probably me, not the appliance. For most of today's cooks, this will work very well. I'm a scratch cook and use my appliances more than most folks. It's a fine appliance over all.
We use our food processor a lot. I had purchased another brand and the bowl broke within a week. It also had a very light weight base. When I contacted the company, they never returned my email. With my past experience with Kitchen Aid brands, I ordered this one. It is wonderful. Chops food quickly and does not bounce all over my counter. I know I can trust the Kitchen aid brand and if necessary I can find parts for it.
We have had this unit for a good 8 years. The base and motor, no problem, but we are now on our 3rd mixing bowl and second lid. The handle parts are cheap Chinese garbage that WILL BREAK even with careful use. At a good $XX a pop, purchase something that will last!
It works great. It's powerful and quiet. The only drawback is if you get water in the handle, it darkens the clear plastic. I owned one before this one so that's how I know this happens. I'm trying to avoid that this time. I might add that the reason I bought another one is because I used my old so much that I wanted to replace the blade. It made more sense to buy a new processor since the price was so good.
I'd love to write a review...indeed to be able to use this product...but you mailed it to the wrong address! How could this be? My friend, also home-bound, is unable (and probably unwilling to pay) to send this heavy package to me...what do I do now? And of course I tried your chat line first, but it was "having trouble connecting"!
This is a nice smaller processor that I will use far more often than the full-size heavy models. It is easy to use, chops, slices and grates well. I can leave it out on the counter, due to its smaller size. It cleans up very easily and is over-all a great addition to the kitchen of someone who loves to cook.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I ordered white. It's white!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I'm very happy with the smaller amount of room it takes up on my counter and that it's not too heavy. The bowl seems a tad thin-walled, as if it may not last forever. It funcitons very well as a processor and I am overall quite pleased with it.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Everything on the site was accurate. It could have included more detaril, however.
