Pros
"ExactSlice" system; easy to clean; small work bowl; versatile
excellent chopping performance; quiet; great warranty; dough function; compact
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
Stiff buttons; lightweight; need both hands to operate; lid occasionally challenging
initially difficult set-up; work bowl flimsy; low liquid capacity
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
