This is one of the best purchases I have ever made for my kitchen. I use it more often than I imagined that I would, so I can say I got a nice surprise and get my money's worth out of the processor. I use it so much because I love it and because it is so versatile and capable of doing a bit of this and a bit of that. The machine has the wide mouth so it is easy to toss in fruits or veggies with ease. You will also find this a feature that makes it easier to pour as well. It is powerful and has a nice 12 cup canister with it. I love that the food processor can chop, dice, slice, mix, and mince. It truly is versatile in so many ways. It is very easy to use as well. Toss it into the dishwasher when its time to clean and the hard work is done for you. For the price you will not find a better food processor. Rush out and get it.
