Pros & Cons
The Black & Decker PowerPro FP2500 Food Processor comprises of 500-watt powerful motor under its sleek and sturdy exterior and performs as great as it looks. The appliance offers a large 10 cup capacity work bowl with a generous handle and a wide-mouth feed chute that can accommodate whole foods, saving time in return by eliminating the need to cut them into smaller pieces first. It gives flexible options to choose from three soft touch Mylar buttons for low or high speed, or pulse that gives an extra burst of power to the stainless steel chopping blade or reversible slicing and shredding disk.
Other highlights include a safety interlock system, heavy duty suction cup feet to keep the unit in place during operation, convenient cord storage and dishwasher safe removable parts for quick and easy clean-up.
However, the reviewers were quite disappointed with the drawbacks from this appliance. The plastic parts are not heavy duty, quite thin, non-durable and break off easily. It is considerably loud and noisy. Also, as the blade is far from the feed tube, the food squishes between the blade and container thus leaving many small and large chunks of food. Many reviewers also mentioned that they found cleaning to be tedious and not easy due to many removable parts.
Overall, the Black & Decker PowerPro FP2500 Food Processor is easy to setup to slice, chop, shred, grate or puree as much or as little as needed to save time and make life simpler. It is reasonably priced and is backed with 2 years limited warranty.

Saves lot of time and energy • Food sticks to the blade or container • The 3 pieces have to click together every time • Waste of time and money for many reviewers
Review Group #: 4
Quick and powerful • Easy to clean, not all parts are dish washer safe though • Does not chop well, the chopping blade is serrated and by the time the food achieves a uniform chop, they are shredded into mushy juice
