Customer reviews are a great source of information at this time of year. Whether you’re buying a gift for someone or making a purchase for yourself, you may wonder if it works like the manufacturer promises. Today I’m talking about food processors, and if you’re about to buy one, I think reading the customer reviews help you know if a model you’re looking at will do what you expect it to do. You may even learn about something you had not considered.

Great Machine … I used it to mix a banana cake, oh so easy, then to grind up dry bread for bread crumbs. Besides being an easy appliance to use it is also hassle free with cleaning it. This is the third Breville product I’ve purchased over the year and am so pleased with them all.
