Hamilton Beach 70610 500-Watt White Food Processor

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I'm in my kitchen a lot cooking dinners for my family, and our family also does a lot of entertaining - which means even more cooking. And while I love it, there are times when you just need to make the job easier, and because of that I needed a food processor. I needed something that could chop, slice and dice for me while I tended to other matters, such as making sure my sauce didn't boil over. I was happy when I found the Hamilton Beach 706010 500-Watt white food processor. It was cheap, it looked like it would do the job I needed to, and it was Hamilton Beach, which is one of the best! Now that I've had it for a couple of years, and have cooked many meals with it, I've been mostly happy with it but have found that it's lacking in some areas.

What I liked most about the food processor as soon as I used it was the speed controls. There are two and they are very easy to manually control. There is also a pulse control, which I find so important and am surprised at how many food processors still lack this function. I also really liked the size of the 10-cup bowl, which I found to be quite large. I still have yet to run into a problem where the bowl on this food processor is too small.

I also liked the different attachments that came with this Hamilton Beach model. It had a chopping blade, and a grating and slicing blade that's reversible and will do either job, depending on which way you place it into the processor. I do like this feature because it takes up less space in my kitchen drawers. But there are still certain attachments, such as a dough hook and a whip attachment that I do wish it had. But considering that models with those attachments often cost hundreds of dollars, and this one only cost me $59.99, I think it's a fair trade.
