After my morphy richards conked off, I thought of buying a national Panasonic mixer grinder- but ended up buying a food processor to help me in cooking chores.


We chucked out inalsa, bajaj- they looked lousy and flimsy


It all boiled down to Usha, Philips and Kenwood.


Philips and Kenwood both were narrowed down - I was told Usha has only 1 customer service center in the city I stay.


We took a mini demo at the store itself and for both Kenwood and Philips- the sales guy was good enough to show one.


Kenwood was the best of the lot but they didn't have the big wet grinding jars that Philips had. But it looked gorgeous and extremely sturdy


The processor was a learning curve:


It is extremely important you fix the jars properly. rotate it clockwise till you hear the click sound. The arm should be at correct 90 deg to jars and u press down(literally press it). Once that is done. voila- its easy. If u just pull the arm down, it lifts itself AND WONT WORK! I have seen people complaining that the design is faulty. its not, you just got to learn how to use it correctly.


If you are grinding dosa/idli batter/ crushing ice/ or grinding something hard- its better to put slight pressure on the part of the arm resting on the lid. or else it comes out. after initial 10 secs u can release ur hand. Other regular masala grinding/chutneys/ purees this is not an issue.


Another thing is- this does not come with the separate whipping disc like the other Philips food processor. The demo guy told me I could use the kneading blade- and yes it works just fine.


of course to add to this I got the best price at reliance digital. Rs 6900 online the best price I think is


7050 on lets buy


So far I have made dosa batter/ pizza dough/ roti dough/ medu vada batter/ cake batter/ grated carrots for halwa/ chopped onions and tomatoes everyday.


Sliced cucumber . chopped palak, made tomato puree, coconut milk, chutneys.


Once you overcome the initial learning curve- this processor is a keeper!
