Previously I had had Cuisinart food processors. This Kitchenaid knocks that brand off it's pedestal. This unit is solid, it's not walking off the counter. It must weigh twice what my old one weighed. The plastic canister also has much thicker walls. The design of the small canister inside the larger one saves space; eliminates having a mini-prep as well as a full size processor. The multi-dimension nesting feed tubes work very well. A whole potato, apple or onion fits in the largest size, while a single carrot sets upright in the narrowest insert for even slices. The shedder disc ploughed through a piece of rock-hard grating cheese as though it were butter. This is the third refurbished small appliance I have purchased through Overstock. Recently I moved and sold all my "average-brand" small appliances. The refurbished "better-brand" items which I've purchased from Overstock have all been fully functional, in like-new condition. For the cost of "average-brand", they are distinctly and perceptibly better quality and performance. Buying refurb through Overstock is a good household investment.
