    Any suggestions for a good quality but cheap food processor?

    My Breville finally gave up on me and will no longer work. I'm after a food processor that's good quality but at a reasonable price.

    Obviously if I can get a good Magimix, KitchenAid or top of the line Breville on sale I'm not going to say no!

    If there's any that people have used and are cheap I'm keen to hear experiences and reviews

    I love to shop!

    Fantastic food processor!

    Love this machine, bought it in the Kitchenware Direct sale for a great price. Can't fault it at all - it's just as fantastic as my friend (who also owns one) said!

    Faulty with poor customer support from Magimix

    My 20 year old magimix became un-repairable so was happy to buy a new one. It arrived after purchasing it online. It is a great mixer. But the bowl is incredibly difficult to lock into place. And the lid is even more difficult. When locking the lid into place, the entire bowl warps out of shape. Having only had the product that we paid more than $400 for, I contacted Magimix and asked them to replace the unit, as it was obviously faulty. The bowl and lid require so much force to lock them into place, that my grandmother is incapable of doing it herself. On the old one, she had no problem whatsoever. Magimix customer support solution was for me to proceed and make 30 minute trips back and forward to the repair center. The repair center have been great. They acknowledge that there product is obviously faulty. They tried changing the bowl and lid for me, but the problem persists. Because I bought the product and it was faulty from the start, my complete disgust is that Magimix company feels it is ok for me to make trips backwards and forwards, an hour each trip to attempt to fix the problem. And now that the replacement bowl and lid dont solve the problem, the next option is for me to leave the mixer at the shop and lose use of the product. Again, I bought it brand new and should not have to have to make all these trips and then lose use of the product. Magimix is sold at a premium price. The product support needs to match. If a product is faulty off the shelf, it should be replaced and become the problem of the company supplying the product. I am disgusted by the attitude of the management at Magimix. I would never ever recommend using any of their products.

    Magimix is great

    I have had a blender in my kitchen for years. Not a very good one... I lashed out and bought the Magimix a few months ago, and just want to say that it has revolutionised my cooking. I use it almost every day - no kidding! It is fast, quiet, easy to clean and works like it should. I absolutely love it. Kitchenware Direct delivered it to me quickly and in pristine condition, and when I wanted an additional item (the vegetable juicer attachment) they were helpful and efficient. They are doing so much that is right - impressive!

    Tefal Electrical La Moulinette Chopper White cheap food processor at Le Domaine

    I've heard good things about the magimix and the micro versions that they sell they seem to rank high in the best buy food processors. Really does depend on what you want, I've found that if you get one that does the job that you want but isn't too expensive is best as I've found all the expensive ones last as long as the cheap ones.

    this one's very small with only a 300G bowl but a massive 1000W motor:

    can't find any reviews for it, will check youtube later as my audio drivers have died after having the laptop plugged into a monitor.

From rough chops to smooth blends, simply hold down the top button for the required length of time, and watch the results through the transparent bowl.
    The Tefal Electrical La Moulinette Chopper has a 300g chopping bowl, and has a compact, stylish and very stable white motor unit. The bowl always fits on the motor easily, and simply press down to activate the stainless steel chopping blade.
