I'm in the market for a food processor.

For those of you who use food processors, any brand-names I should avoid or any suggestions as to the best one for the best price to get?

I'm eyeing a Hamilton Beach:  https://www.amazon.c...d-20&ascsubtag=[artid|10055.a.26064214[src|[ch|[lt|

What do you think?

I've had a Ninja food processor since 2013. I liked it because it came with an Ice Crusher attachment...at least it did at the time I  bought it...

Looked ok until reading the first negative reviews which said it was poorly designed for thorough cleaning. But then again, anything can be cleaned as long as you can reach it or figure out how to reach it.

I love mine but it's pretty basic. I think it was 30 bucks at Walmart.

Wifey wanted an air fryer for Christmas. My brain started frying trying to figure out which one to get, so I made an executive decision. Rather than blow her entire budget on the wrong one, I told her to study them and decide which one she wanted, and we'll get it with the tax return.

we got a nuwave air fryer last year. it works well and we use it, but it does take alot of counter space.

OMG, wish I came across this sooner.  I got taken twice by buying Hamilton Beach, a food processor and a microwave.  They look like good deals, but in the end they turn out to be cheap, poorly performing garbage.  Better to spend a couple dollars more in the beginning and get a producct that will work well enough in the long run.

I bought a Hamilton Beach slow cooker that got rave reviews but I think it stinks.  It doesn't cook well at all and I just stopped using it.  I never got another one because I don't know which brand is reliable.

I'm not too impressed with their products either.
