What a fabulous little machine! I use it constantly. It is easy to use, light to pick up, easy to clean, has more than enough features (what is it with these home appliances that have 692 features? Who other than a professional needs that many?) and fits the bill for most of the things I make. I do cook a lot more than the average person and I actually have TWO of these machines. I generally use the regular blade attachment for most chores but the other graters and choppers are easy to put together and use as well. And I am not talented with equipment. So if you want something that is easy to use, not too many features (that you likely won't use anyway), a good price, reliable, there are not enough adjectives to go around to describe the excellent functioning and uses of this invention. I'm not big on expensive and complicated kitchen machines so this is really one of the best purchases I have ever made and I recommend it highly to everyone.
