Pros
inexpensive; easy to set up and clean up; good shredding cheese
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
small feed tube; low liquid capacity; loud; flimsy and lightweight
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
