I bought this on impulse a few months ago and have used it endlessly since. It was a bargain price, and for the money it has far exceeded expectations. The only criticism (and it is barely a criticism as its a worry, rather than a reality) is that the mixer attachment appears quite flimsy and looks as if it could snap any moment – however i have used it loads of times and despite appearances appears to be robust enough for what i use it for (whipped cream, batters etc). Overall i am delighted with the product for every day home use. It would probably not withstand heavy duty “professional” cooks that want more than the regular every tasks but its fine for daily “normal” tasks.

Excellent for the price, with a few little niggles. I’ve always been a fan of kenwood food processors and as my last one had finally had its day (dropped on the floor too many times by me having clumsy moments) and so i added this to my wish list and was fortunate to be given one for christmas. My little niggles (and believe me there are minor as overall this is a great piece of kit):1. Thanks to some helpful amazon reviews, i was prepared to find that the central pillar would fall out frequently when removing the main bowl. Take it out carefully to avoid dropping it and damaging it on the floor and you do this automatically after a few trial (and errors)2. There are lots of attachments, which on face value is a great thing, but just think about your kitchen size and storage space before you buy (and check out the useful review that has been added with a video link as this shows you all the pieces as they come out of the box and you’ll soon see what you are dealing with. If you have lots of space, this won’t be a niggle at all. The mill – for me this is a real puzzle.
Kenwood FP580 2-Speed Food Processor – White : An excellent multi-function food processor with well designed features. The kenwood fp580 2 speed food processor is a well designed multi-purpose kitchen utensil, built around the core functionality of a food processor. The main body of the unit is a solid plastic base which allows for a number of different blades and attachments to be added to it, in order for it to perform different everyday cooking functions. The power cord can also be pushed back into a small purposefully left space within the main body of the unit, making storage and safety of the appliance a little easier. Utilising a simple ‘clip-on, clip-off’ design for the different attachments, more often than not incorporating the cylinder detachable drive shaft, the unit can be quickly and easily changed from one functionality to another. The key functions of the unit are as follows:food processorliquidisertwin beater geared whiskerslicer / shredderdough kneadercitrus pressmill (for herbs, nuts & coffee beans etc)the food processor is a sturdy and durable unit, with a very simple to use functionality. The food processor offers two different speeds as well as a pulse option for quick blasts of the blades.
