My husband and I decided on the Hamilton Beach ChefPrep 10-cup Food Processor when it was time to expand on the number of kitchen appliances we have around our house. The Hamilton Beach ChefPrep was the right price and is dishwasher safe, everything we were looking for in a food processor. I am thankful that we ended up getting the 10-cup food processor because I am able to do more than just chop a couple of vegetables. Not only are we able to mince parsley and chop onions, but we can mix the whole meatloaf in our food processor. However, this is definitely a food processor for those on a budget. It is not one of those super fancy high end ones. It is a little on the noisy side, regardless of what setting the food processor is on or what food productions are inside. In addition, I was not able to use our Hamilton Beach ChefPrep food processor to shred mozzarella cheese. We also have some issues using the food processor to slice pepperoni, tomatoes, and a few other similar softer products. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase of our Hamilton Beach ChefPrep 10 Cup Food Processor and would definitely recommend this product to my friends and family that are looking for a fantastic basic budget food processor.
