    Misleading capacity

    I ordered this because the bowl capacity is stated to be 2.3L. When it arrived the bowl marking shows the max is 1000ml. Processor returned.

    Brilliant... until it’s not.

    The first one I ordered didn’t work the first time I got it out of the box. I have had the second one for three months and use it daily to prepare meals for my weaning baby. The grating function is brilliant, quick and easy. The smaller chopper is perfect for making baby sized portions. However the food processor when using the mixing bowl no longer turns on, so I can’t now use the majority of the components (cutters, graters, slicers). This has happened out of the blue showing how unreliable this product is. Really disappointed.

    You get what you pay for!

    When i used the big jug liquid was leaking out of the bottom of it, and when i used the tall jug i had to keep my hand on the lid as with the vibration when turned on the lid would jump off :(

    Unable to use product

    I am very disappointed to say that I have been unable to use the product as the universal blade was missing from the box. Bosch have still not sent out the part so very frustrated that two weeks after receiving the product I have been unable to use it.

    Rather disappointing performance

    Slightly disappointed, not user friendly compared to old one. Slicing attachment sharp but leaves residue jammed in top. Not that easy to assemble. No pulse facility.

    Nice colour

    Good not amazing for it being a Bosch blender Easy to use but have to cut pieces smaller for faster blend also have to add extra water and stop and start Didnt have to do that with my old one Struggling to open smaller blender , its stuck and dont want to crack the plastic Jug size is good ,have not tried it yet but im assuming blend will be similar to large blender

    Does the job

    The product looks and feels lovely, it's compact and works well on a kitchen worktop. The attachments are not the easiest to use and it feels as though it could break if one uses a bit of force which is sometimes required. Personally, for herbs such as bunches of parsley, coriander, etc. I find the mini blender that I have had from Kenwood for many years chops better than the one that comes with this Bosch product, where it tends to make the chopped herbs more 'mushy'. Overall, it's fine and value for money. For me, next time I would probably increase my budget hoping to get something that works that much better.


    I have only used it a couple of times so far in the past week. So far, it is not as convenient as I thought it would be. I am hoping it becomes more useful, otherwise, it will be another gadget gathering dust in the draw.
