I purchased this food processor a few years back and after only using it a few times I was too frustrated with it to want to use it again. I have tried it for many different uses like salsa, soup, dough, general puréed foods and I seemed disappointed everytime I tried. My salsa the tomatoes ended up tangled on the blade, my soups were semi chunky and just general puréed food was not smooth at all. Maybe I overloaded it or maybe I didn't read the directions properly but I was not a fan. It cleaned up nice but I noticed the dishwasher turned the bowl ad top purple. It still works fine, it's just discolored. The motor is pretty loud. For all the noise it makes, it doesn't do a great job. It gets the job done but I think it's worth paying alittle more and getting a better product. I would maybe recommend this product to someone it just depends on what they were to use it for.
