This food processor is difficult to use in all the ways mentioned by other reviewers: difficult to get the blade lined up and seated properly, difficult (and dangerous) to get the blade removed again, particularly if the bowl is full of food...which is the point of a food processor, that you've put food in it. The slicer/shredder is bulky, difficult to clean, and doesn't discharge food effectively. There is no pulse function, though it can be poorly faked by toggling between on and off. The largest issue is that it completely quit working from one work week to the next, at 8 months of age, with no abuse or misuse, and you cannot get a refund, they will only send you another one without extending the warranty. Don't waste your money, stretch your budget to get a Robot Coupe. In 27 years of kitchen work, I have never known a RC to go down, only to need replacement bowls and blades. I regret buying this instead, but we are strapped in our budget and so we gave it a try. A terrible choice.
