Pros
quiet; compact with excellent versatility; affordable; flat work lid; simple paddle control
relatively inexpensive; good performance with chopping, mixing, and slicing; continuous processing through large feed tube
great performance and great versatility; relatively affordable for a basic commercial food processor; the longest motor warranty of any commercial food processor; convenience of external ejection chute on vegetable prep attachment
Cons
feeder tube system is hard to clean and complicated to use
motor not strong enough for heavier jobs; large feeder tube is poorly designed & hard to clean
motor is only powerful enough for smaller establishments where it will be used just a few hours a day; it only comes with 3 blade/disc attachments and 1 cutter bowl (other accessories are sold separately and can be pricey); no blade storage included with your purchase; can't see ingredients through the cutter bowl
