Black & Decker FP1600B 8-Cup Food Processor, Black (Kitchen)
I’ve had
the product for about two weeks now and have used it many times. I’m quite pleased with it. It chops and grates well. I’ve run the removable parts through the dishwasher the vast majority a dozen times, and they haven’t melted (another reviewers said theirs melted, however i don’t know how they managed that.) The only real complaint I have is a slight one- when shredding chunks of cheese, I’d often be playing a small cheese slice which i couldn’t shred since there was little else pushing it down to the shredding blade. I wasn’t going to stick my hand or a spoon in that area, but the last bit of cheese is really light it just whirls around using the blade and shred. That’s really no problem, though.
I think it’s worth noting that the various components have to be precisely in place for the processor to work. I read the instructions and assembled the processor, only to discover that it wouldn’t come on. I took everything apart and tried again. I even switched to a different outlet, and it wouldn’t work. I became very frustrated and upset. My hubby came home and took a glance and tried rotating the bowl from the food processor so the handle was facing the alternative direction, also it came on just fine. The directions just tell put the bowl on and lock it into place. When the handle is around the back of the processor, you can still “lock” the bowl into place- it makes a clicking sound and makes you believe that it’s on properly. However, the handle needs to face the user in order to work. Maybe I had been just being stupid about the whole thing, but I went back and read the directions again and couldn’t find one explicit mention of this little bit of information.
