I can’t believe this thing only cost $28. I’ve never owned a food processor in my life – I’ve always had this weird thing about having to chop everything by hand. And I cook a LOT. But I was finally thwarted by falafel – I had a grinder attachment for my KitchenAid that was just not cutting it, and my blender wasn’t cutting it for the hummus I also love to make on the regular. Both made these simple foods take too long to prepare and make a huge mess. So I decided to initiate the Food Processor Experiment. This thing had great reviews so I thought it would probably be a good test subject.

I bought this food processor for the sole purpose of making nut butters. Once washed and assembled, I had a jar of pecan and a jar of cashew nut butter in literally a few minutes! I’m beyond IMPRESSED with this machine. Every nut butter recipe I read said that the process would take at least 15-20 minutes, so I was prepared for the wait. I was also prepared to periodically take breaks to prevent the food processor from overheating, since I’ve heard that many less expensive food processors don’t handle the job well. I don’t know what kind of food processors those bloggers were using, but this little gem made me creamy cashew butter (using 10 oz bag of honey roasted cashews from Aldi) in less than 3 minutes and creamy pecan butter in less than 1 minute (using 8 oz bag of chopped pecans)!! I didn’t even roast/heat the nuts before processing. If you’re like me and want to know if this will work for nut butters then don’t hesitate to buy this. Appliances like this prove that you don’t always have to spend a lot of money for quality products!

My mother has always said that if her food processor breaks, she will go out that day and buy a new one. Me? I have got along just fine (or so I thought) hand chopping my vegetables or using The Ultimate Chopper (the famous or perhaps infamous infomercial product from the 2000’s) for smaller jobs. Recently though, I thought it would be great to slice vegetables without having to stand at the counter for hours on end (full disclosure, my boyfriend was sick of seeing me almost slice my finger off). Enter this fantastic machine.

My first food processor ever.

This is awesome! I debated for months about whether or not to buy a food processor, but I’m so glad I did. These whole (tough, thick) graham crackers went from their original form to this fine crumb in about 10 seconds. It’s very powerful.

Surprisingly powerful – excellent performance for this price level

This is a fantastic food processor at this price point. I purchased it with an Amazon Prime Now order because my fancy Cuisinart food processor that I had paid $200+ for stopped working for no reason. I was throwing a dinner party the next night and couldn’t wait to replace my Cuisinart. When ordering last minute party supplies from Amazon Prime Now I checked to see if they sell food processors and to my delight, they did, so I purchased this one.

Great buy, but beware of damaged shipments.

I’ve used several food processors over the years, and this one does the same job at a fraction of the price.

Hamilton Beach is the best

I bought this after my 30 year old food processer died and another name brand I bought was so awful I threw it away. This is better than my old one. more compact and more powerful. Easy to clean.
