    I love the fact that the lid clips on. No lining it up and turning it. Easy on, easy off!! Love the two different size shoots. Powerful and does not take up a lot of space! Completely satisfied!

    Great food processor—-reliable, easy to clean, easy to operate. Once I washed it on the bottom rack of the dishwasher, the lid now takes more fiddling to get it to fasten down. I guess the heat caused minor warping. It still works though. I would still recommend it.

    I know this food processor has gotten some bad reviews, but I tend to look at the combined total of 4 (15%) + 5 (64%) star rating and that give it 79%. I consider that to be quite good for a rating on Amazon. Then, I looked at the fact the ratings don’t seem to be about anything other than the product it should be about. Lately, reviews for different products seem to be showing up where they don’t belong, which distorts a product’s true ratings. With the reviews just on Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Stack and Snap Food Processor (70725A) and an overall 79% 4 + 5 star rating, I then compared it to other food processors and their reviews. After what seemed like an interminable amount of analysis and sorting through reviews, I selected the Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Food Processor (70725A).

    I had been using my tiny Cuisanart to do at best 3/4 to 1 cup at a time to puree cooked rice with beef bone broth every 3 or 4 days for the dogs. Pembroke Welsh Corgis for those who want to know. This was really frustrating me since I have to have 1 cup of the mixture per day for the dogs to add to their food.

    So, enter my having to be out of town for almost 2 weeks and I set out to mix up 2 weeks worth of cooked rice and beef bone broth to leave for my husband to feed the dogs while I would be away. plus an extra day so I would not immediately need to mix up more upon my return. That process with my “miniature” Cuisanart sent my frustration level went through the roof. I was determined to not have to go through that again, thus ordered this Hamilton Beach food processor!

    Imagine my delight when I as soon as I returned home I realized I apparently had not made up enough for day of “travel recovery” before making more doggie rice/broth mixture. I’m still not convinced my husband did not use more than necessary, but that’s beside the point and I turned to open the Amazon box containing my Hamilton Beach food processor which had arrived while I was gone.

    I decided to cook up the whole bag of short grain brown rice at once and give the new food processor a try. 5 cups of rice + 10 cups of water = a lot of rice. I divided it into 3 portions figuring rice is sticky, it would probably get stuck to the side of the processor and I wasn’t using a whole lot of broth to combat that. With the first portion of rice in the processor I added about 3/4 cups of beef bone broth, pressed puree, and quickly shut it off! The processor is rather load and made the doggies bark and bark and bark! I stopped the food processor, they stopped barking. I started it again, they started again. I shut the food processor off and put the dogs outside! Problem solved! Within about 5 minuetes, I finished 8 days worth at 1 cup per day of rice/broth mixture. Happy dance! Literally, I did a happy dance!

    By the way, dogs also digest the pureed rice better than leaving the pieces whole. Just so ya know.

    Upon returning home, I also had to look forward to processing 5 large and I mean large pumpkins. Also for the doggies!

    My adult daughter has also been sick, so I offered to process her pumpkins as well – also a lot of large pumpkins! So, the Hamilton Beach has been working almost relentlessly since October 27th. Enough so, that my hands are very dry from constant washing of them, all the equipment, and the kitchen counter, sink, and stove.

    So, I’ve processed:
    3 batches of rice/broth puree good for 8 days each for the dogs.
    98 quarts of pureed pumpkin (55 quarts for our dogs, the balance for my daughter’s dog and family)
    16 – 1/2 pint jars for adding to homemade spiced chai (my reward when I get to actually sit down)

    I’m ready to say the Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Food Processor rocks! I’m my opinion.

    I’ve washed it umpteen times without any of the problems or concerns I’ve seen others state. Maybe I’m being extra diligent because of what and where others have stated they’ve had food get stuck and either can’t get it out or do with great difficulty. I have some small brushes in a jar by the sink for cleaning hummingbird feeders which do the trick quite nicely and easily.

    The enclosed part on the lid and bowl that create the easy stack and snap feature of this food processor is one area some reviewers have complained about either food or moisture getting into and not being able to get it out or having a lot of difficulty getting it out.

    Well, I’m not the neatest person as I’m forging through processing our doggies’ rice/broth mixture or processing at least 275 pound of pumpkins. I doubt I’m over estimating on the pumpkins. 98 quart jars and 16 – 1/2 pint jars took 204 pounds of pumpkins and I hauled a lot of 5 gallon buckets half full of pumpkin skin, seeds, and guts outside! Between removing the processor lid to pour the pureed pumpkin into the double boiler to keep it hot for canning it, adding mushy, cooked pumpkin into the small hole the black “large food pusher” creates in the “food chute” for hours on end and I had pumpkin pretty much everywhere on the processor bowl, lid, and large black food pusher. I was able to keep the base quite clean despite the plops of pumpkin on the counter – yay!

    Despite my mess, the bowl and lid cleaned up easily. Yes, water got into the enclosed parts that create the processor’s stack and snap feature, but it dried, overnight as a matter of fact. I don’t quite understand others complaints that moisture gets in there and never dries. All I can say is that moisture does get in there, but it dried each and every time in mine.

    I found the key to cleaning the lid and bowl is to not let them sit to allow for any food dry on them. The inside of the bowl can be filled with water to soak if necessary. I was reluctant at first to submerge it in the sink because of some of the reviews, but even doing that any trapped moisture dried. I use the “hummingbird cleaning brush” on part of the “nonremovable motor shaft” in the bowl to make sure all food residue was removed.

    The “chopping/mixing blade” is another part other reviewers have complained about. I soak it in hot soapy water and scrub! Sponge, “hummingbird cleaning brush,” dish bristle brush, rinse, repeat until I’m confident I’ve gotten all the food from between the plastic and blades. So, far with lots of use, cleaning, and drying I have not noticed any odors or anything of concern.

    The black “large food pusher” is a bit tough to clean. But, I found soaking it helped to loosen any pumpkin that was stuck inside and then reaching in with a knife and flushing it under running water I could get the pumpkin out.

    I’m happy as a dog with a new bone with my purchase of the Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Stack and Snap Food Processor (70725A). Our dogs also seem very happy with the rice/broth mix and pumpkins from this processor! It’s Corgi approved as well by their owner!

    Have only used a few times so far – but amazing! Easy to use, easy to clean, compact- fits in my cabinet! Mega power! Blade’s are super sharp- takes a bit to learn the blades- especially pulse, too much gives you miniscule pieces, have to learn gentle touch- love it! Should have bought it sooner!

    Llevo con el casi 5 años y nunca he tenido problema, la foto que anexo es de cuando me llegó y pues todo bien. He hecho hummus, falafel, cortar verduras, crema de cacahuate y procesar varios tipos de alimentos. Si necesitas que quede muy muy fino no te lo recomendaría, ya que llega hasta cierto límite, aunque para hacer cremas de nueces y semillas si funciona perfecto, solo debes agregar bastante cantidad para que se alcance a moler por completo ya que es bastante grande. Es muy muy ruidoso pero creo que aplica para cualquier procesador.

    This is an excellent food processor for the money, but as they say, you get what you paid for. It grates, slices, chops food, and blends food from fresh veggies. This thing does exactly what it’s supposed to do! I even use it to make brown sugar from white sugar and molasses. It does tend to get stuff stuck up in the lid, but that issue is survivable. Every task in the manual works, but DON’T DROP THE BOWL OR LID ON TO THE FLOOR. This appliance was 100% perfect until the lid parts or the bowl is broken and safety features will not let you use it until the broken part is replaced.

    The bowl and every part of the lid is made of that clear breaky plastic that cracks, chips, or shatters when dropped on the floor. This plastic is used in dozens of inexpensive countertop appliances nowadays. It’s plastic; not glass so you’re safe. It won’t break, right? And it has safety features so that it won’t work if you cannot get the lid snapped on and if the shoot isn’t in place it won’t run. However, if you drop the bowl and lid and just crack or chip it so that it can’t be locked down or the shoot can’t be put in place, you aren’t going to enjoy any of the features.

    For breaking it, your punishment is to search the Hamilton Beach website, use your model number, and find a replacement part you need. This process may be so frustrating that you will cry. When you DO find the model number and part number, you will cry again! Just the bowl costs $33.99, add shipping, so you’ll cry in frustration some more!

    However, when it’s not broken, this thing works GREAT! It does everything it’s supposed to and does it well! I have turned berries and fruit into a strainable mush (to remove seeds to make the BEST jam! Just remember; when you are washing the bowl, lid, and parts, just don’t drop them, none of them.

    Este procesador es una gran ayuda dentro de la cocina, muy fácil de usar pero no tanto de limpiar. Muy potente y versátil. La opción para picar es genial, el rallador espectacular, pero el rebanado es lo mejor. Tiene muy buen tamaño tanto e apertura como de su recipiente general. Muy buena opción a un muy buen precio.

    Like that is isn’t real big, fits on counter without looking cluttered. Great power and love the durability it seems to have over our old Cuisinart.
