Very stylish food processor that is useless in every other way.

I got this on special offer at half price at just under £50 from Argos and i thought i was getting a good deal. It does come in a very fancy box and I cant fault the instructions. Style-wise it looks very good being a mixture of stainless steel, black plastic that feels good to touch and the clear plastic bowl and jug. The bowl and jug both have measurements on the front of them.
The blender can take up-to a litre but i have found it best to stick to 800ml or it'll struggle with things such as apples, carrots and sometimes even bananas. This is quite a failing for a blender. The main bowl is the same, it can take upto 1.4 Litres but it struggles with anything above a Litre. I think Kenwood should invest in some quality control for their appliances as this would have been enough to put me off Kenwood for life. They do make pretty good bread makers though so i would only avoid their food processors.
The three attachments that come with this are the coarse grating blade, the coarse slicing blade and chopping blade. The grating blade is OK in that it does a job that is average at best, the other two blades neither slice nor chop very well and you would need to use the machine for well over a minute to get anything passable from them, by which time the motor would have probably overheated and you would need to give it time to cool down.
The main reason people are going to buy this is for the chopping and the slicing and if it can't do that very well then whats the point. This is a big and bulky machine that is difficult to keep clean and takes up too much space for something that doesn't do very much, i would recommend a mini chopper and a stand alone liquidiser instead of this monstrosity.
Summary: Good looks but no functionality
