I didn't realize what I was missing out on until I bought this food processor. I was spending so much time chopping food when this could do it much faster with the press of a button. I bought the Hamilton Beach food processor on a whim when it was on sale and I had an additional coupon so the price was reasonable and much better priced than other food processors out there. It is small so it can't handle a lot of food, but emptying it out and doing it again is easy. I use it to chop veggies, nuts, and other food. It works great every time and I have had it for years. It is also easy to clean and put back together. I don't use it very often so it sits in the cupboard but since it is small it doesn't take up too much room so I love it!
