I received this as a wedding gift. I had done my research and registered for a different one but decided this should be good. It works well. It quickly chops up anything I've put in it. No complaints on the power/chopping work of this processor. The problem? It is in the design. First, it is turned on with a knob. A knob that does not lock in place. So it must constantly be held. No multitasking while using this. Second, assembly is difficult. It seems to be made of cheap plastic. It is difficult to get the bowl on the base. Then the top on the bowl is another challenge. It clicks but is very hard to assemble. A green light comes on when assembled correctly so it can power on - it can take a few tries to get that to come on. Taking it apart is another challenge. Untwisting the lid always makes me think it's going to snap apart. The plastic seems flimsier than I would expect. This has held up for 5 years, but probably only because I hardly use it. I would love to use it more, but it is just not easy enough to assemble and use. I recommend getting one made of sturdier plastic with a power button instead of the knob. And make sure it is easy to assemble/disassemble as the lid is taken off several times during processing.
