I have owned this Hamilton Beach food processor for 5 years now, and it has proven to be a durable and useful appliance. It does a good job of chopping food, and I've even used it to puree baby food. It is easy to operate and sleekly designed. My least favorite part of it is cleaning it, though putting the parts in the dishwasher make that significantly easier. It does not overheat, and it does a good job of finely chopping food. The design is sleek, and it is easy to store and assemble. It puts some convenience in food preparation and helps preparation go much more quickly. It has been very reliable for me, and it was a good value for its price. I recommend this product and would buy it again.
