Bowl Scraper Feature

Assembling and disassembling a food processor to scrape on the sides for even processing can get frustrated as it takes time to do, sometimes making the cooking process inefficient because of all the starting and stopping. The Hamilton Beach 70730 is a great and different processor in the fact that this one is designed to scrape down its sides on its own. With this food processor there’s no need to stop and remove the lid to move food into the center of the bowl. This food processor features a built-in scraper that can be used when the processor is on or off to speed up food preparation times. It also comes with a large feed chute so that there’s less chopping up of items before going in the processor.

The Good

The 70730 by Hamilton Beach is a food processor that can hold up to 10 cups of food, making it ideal for any family. The slice and shredding disc and both reversible and the S-blade is great for mixing, pureeing and chopping. It is a great size that doesn’t take up a lot of counter space, making it ideal for small kitchens, but definitely works well for larger kitchens as well. The discs some all labeled so that there’s no guessing involved in deciding which one to use. It is great for chopping nuts, onions, garlic, meat, celery, bread, herbs, crackers and a variety of other items. It can also be used to puree fruits and vegetables to make delicious baby food and for soups or sauces for the family. This unit features suction cups on the bottom to prevent it from tumbling to the side as they keep the appliance stable and in place.

The Bad

It works great compared to other food processors in the same price range, but it doesn’t feel very high quality. It is very light so it doesn’t feel very sturdy, which is why the suction cups on the bottom are a good addition to this unit. It isn’t a very quiet appliance. Food can get stuck between the scraper and the bowl but with care it isn’t very difficult to take care of.

Small but Efficient

It is small enough to save up counter space on small apartment kitchens and college dorms. It is black and silver and the style is pleasing to the aye. Its modern and cute look can match most kitchen décor and color palettes and styles without clashing with other appliances. The outside wipes clean easily to keep this appliance’s contemporary look sharp.

Overall Verdict

This is a very nice processor that is very easy to clean and straightforward to use. It can even make almond butter and other nut butters quickly as well as pie and biscuit dough, amongst others. It is a handy appliance with the side scraping function and wide feed chute that will definitely help in saving food prepping times. Its footprint is small enough for smaller kitchens but serves plenty for a medium family.
