This food processor works great. Sometimes I am amazed at the items it can handle. I have found, however, with large chunks of chicken you may have to stop in between and shake it up, but I think that is to be expected and would work better in a large processor. As far as peppers, tomatoes, nuts, etc, this is the perfect size and quality. Overall this was a great buy on a deal site. It works quickly and effectively. I only wish I had a full-size processor, and will be looking to buy one from this brand if the price is right. Safety There is a safety latch so that the buttons only work if you have locked it in, which is nice. Ease of Cleaning You have to disassemble all parts to wash thoroughly, but that is to be expected.
