K29945 - Cooks Essentials 5 Cup 350 Watt Food Processor w/Accessories
Nice for the Price
This item is a great value for the price paid. I haven't had any problem with the motor stopping, as some other reviewers have stated. For the average kitchen job, this machine does fine! The juicer works very well too. Happy with my purchase!
Don't Buy --
Used this 2 times and motor seized up -- No wonder this a clearance item -- This is the first Cooks Essential product that I have had to return --
A must have for all your SMALL jobs!!!
I got this few days ago and was a little hesitant because of the reviews but didn't want to pass a great deal so as in everything in life we all have different experiences....
Thanks to a "Q-shopper buddy" I learned that the problem I was having removing the accessories was not me :) and after removing them and cleaning them decided to place them back in their container but place them inside a bigger container so the accessories will be a bit loose.
I have been able to use the different accessories without incidents, however I had to remind myself about the size of this little gadget and use it as such, so if I need large amount I do it in batches but it is intended for small jobs.
Great for small families or patience families :)
It is a small investment that gives you big returns :) Have fun with it!
I was so excited to get this. The price was right. very disapointed in the product.
It had no power what so ever... Dead as a doornail. Had to return it.
Had to push down on the lid to get it to almost work, it went back
parts weren't well made, felt very cheap
will not buy any other Cooks Ess product again
This processor is the worst product ever. It does not do the things it suppose to do. It does not shred the food I want it shred properly so I have to shred them by hand myself. What was the point of me buying this if it doesn't work. The instructions are of no help.
Believe it or not but my food processor was stolen out of my storage shed!! I bought this as a replacement & couldn't be happier!! I cut up vegetables for soup the first time I used it & was done in no time. If I had had to chop them myself it would have taken over an hour & I was done in under 10 minutes. You can't beat it for the price or quality. Get it while they still have them.
Verdict is still out!
So excited to receive this food processor. Perfect size for my needs, all the attachments I could ever use, and a bonus of a citrus juicer. Now comes the disappointment. First time I used this food processor, I used the juice attachment. After 1-1/2 lemons, the motor stopped and I have been unable to restart the processor. Manual states if the motor stops instantly to unplug it, let it cool down for 15 minutes and then restart it. Cooling down did not help. I think the motor is gone. Previous reviews were complimentary of the motor strength so I wonder if I just received a bad processor or if I will have trouble with a replacement. My husband wants me to request an exchange because this food processor meets all my requirements at such a reasonable price. I hope if anyone else has experienced my problem, they will please submit their comments. Cannot recommend this product until I try another one.
Didn't expect the motor to be so powerful and I do like the assortment of blades. Plus it's quick and easy to clean. So far, it seems like a great machine.
Love my purchase. We have already gotten so much use out of it!
Just What I Needed.
Great price. Strong motor. Nice assortment of blades and tools. Each blade is marked with what is meant for. Perfect sized machine for a small household just like Bob said in his presentation. Manual could be a bit more in-depth, but I managed and it has five recipes with four pages for notes. It also specifies "Do not place any part of the food processor in the dishwasher." Blades do store in a storage frame. From my experience, I found them difficult to remove while trying to avoid the sharp edges as they snap into the frame. Also, the blade I would need would inevitably be on the bottom of the stack, which meant taking out the top blades first. I instead store the blades in a small snap and lock plastic container that I have. Just easier getting to the blades and I am careful as they are very sharp. Works for me. I have made small batches of bread dough for pizza crust and it does a great job. Wonderful for slicing, shredding, grating, chopping, juicing, and whisking. I've gotten rid of four hand utensils from my cabinet since getting this food processor.
