With the Hamilton Beach Bowl Scraper Food Processor, there's no need to stop and remove the lid to dislodge food from the side of the bowl. The built-in scraper does the work for you, even while the processor is on for continuous processing. Kitchen Tips- For a more uniform consistency, start with pieces of food that are similar in size. Cut food into 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces before processing with the chopping/mixing blade and leave room in the bowl for the food to be tossed around.When chopping foods, pulsing on and off will produce the best results.Operating time will depend on the quantity of food being processed. Most foods can be sliced, chopped, or shredded in seconds.To slice or shred cheese, use firm cheeses like Cheddar or Swiss that have been chilled for at least 30 minutes. Soft cheese like Mozzarella must be placed in the freezer for 30 minutes prior to processing to ensure it is firm enough for shredding.All removable parts are top rack dishwasher safe
Wednesday December 28th, 2016:I’m going to write a review in stages as time progresses.To start, I just opened the box and I can’t believe this processor is $21. The last time I looked, I think it was $29. It was packed alright (not the best) but I immediately put it together. I was looking for something smaller, maybe a 3-4 cups but since this one was so cheap with so many great reviews, I thought why not? You do get what you pay for sometimes so I am hopeful it will work well for a long time. It does feel a little bit light and cheap.I decided right away to make pie dough. I threw in 1 1/4 cup flour, some salt, sugar and butter. I’m floored at how easy it was to make! I’ve been making pie dough with a handheld cutter and slicing/chopping vegetables with a knife for decades. I could just kick myself for waiting to buy one of these processors to assist me in the kitchen. Wow, who knew these contraptions could make your prep so much easier?I will continue to update this review as time moves forward. I hope for the best…stay tuned.January 18th, 2017:I’m a little enamored with this food processor right now. I’m not sure how to put it into words to show how ebullient I am that I took a risk and bought this little multi-use tool. Thus far, I’ve used this unit about 20 times to make mostly pie dough and cut up vegetables. It has done perfectly every time. I make all kinds of cuisine from French, Korean, Mexican, Indian and much, much more. This food processor has literally decimated the amount of time I spend in the kitchen chopping scallions, potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, garlic, onions, cilantro and much more. I’ve made several small pies for friends while testing this thing and it is so, so much better pulsing the butter & shortening into pea-sized bits using this machine. I love it.For reference I’ve attached two photos for this entry. I wanted to make a homemade breakfast with pancakes, sausage, eggs and hashbrowns. I sliced the potato in half and pushed it down the chute for potential shredded potato pieces. You can see the result in in my first photo. The second photo is a pulverized mix of onions, garlic, ginger and jalapeño for a chicken Karahi dish. I think I pulsed the machine 4-6 times. Done. If not for this thing, I’d be mincing away at the garlic forever not to mention the onions, japan and ginger.I’m in love and hopefully this thing will not give out on me like how some of these other posters are attesting to but I’m hopeful. I also take care of my things and do not abuse them.If you’ve never had a food processor before, or know someone who is old fashioned and chops things by hand, this is a very inexpensive gift that will pack a BIG practical punch 🙂
Amazon Customer –
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!
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.This food processor is much lighter than my Cuisinart, but still offers a large capacity work bowl. It purees, chops, and blends most foods with total ease. I think it is even more powerful than my Cuisinart was. I was able to roughly chop vegetables in seconds, as well as make purees, as shown in my photos. It took a little time to figure out how to install the working bowl and top cover so it locks properly so the machine will turn on, but once I figured it out it was easy to use. I was extremely impressed by how powerful and quick it was. When you need a puree it totally purees whatever ingredient you are using, in seconds, unlike some food processors that either take quite a while to puree, or give you a chunky puree. The food processor has two suction cup feet on the bottom which holds the machine securely onto your workspace, which is a great feature.The only complaint I have about this food processor is that it is EXTREMELY loud. I was using it to prep a few things late the night before my party, and was shocked at how loud it was. I could only do a couple of pulses and finish one ingredient because it would have woken up my neighbors in my apartment building otherwise. If Hamilton Beach could figure out how to reduce the noise level by half, this would be the absolute perfect food processor.
