Rated 2 out of 5 by Devchand Not very useful gadget
It is perhaps not good for Indian Kitchen without chutney jar. Other accessories though good but does not make sense to use as cleaning takse more effors than doing something mannually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vipin TIME SAVING EFFICIENTLY
We are using this food processor daily for kneading, chopping and grating etc.. The blender of this food processor is the best we have used till date. This is a good solid product from the house of Philips, which saves a lot of electricity because of its simple design and efficient working. We recommend this FOOD PROCESSOR for every kitchen.

Very handy and useful product. However lacks from grinding of masala for day to day requirement due to absence of small masala grinder bowl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by thomson This product is Nice but with just One disadvantage..
The product is very useful & worth the money that customer pay.
The only drawback I felt is the lack of a Chutney Jar, which is essential for household uses. Even the customer can not purchase one extra Chutney jar, since compatible Jar is not available...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ritvij911 A good food processor for daily needs
The food processor is as advertised.
It Saves space and a lot of it.
The vertical design makes it easy for an housewife to move it around.
It is powerful, but the bowls are not strong enough to withstand the grinding of rice or pulses to Dosas etc; still have to use the philips grinder for that.
Overall, its aesthetic, the blade changing process should be made a little easy or ergonomic.
If you're looking for a processor that does most of the work of the kitchen, this is it!
And its priced right too!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by zuzzo62 This product is just a basic food processor for all day usage, nothing extraordinary
The main problem of this product, which made me angry at the beginning, is that it simply does not whip the egg whites to stiff peaks nor can it make cream fluffy until it turns into chantilly...I have used eggs at room temperature, I have tried it with fresh eggs, fresh cream, vegetable cream etc etc. I am sorry, but it does not work at all..

This product cannot slice. But it can shred very well. I tried to slice a tomato into a thin slices. I could not push the small sized tomato down the feed tube. I cut it into two halves, the minimum of the three parameters LxHxB was 3.5 cm. It cut one half slice ( not one complete circular slice ), then it rotated the remaining portion of the cut half of the tomato round and round on top of the insert holder, doing nothing. I got fed up after 15 minutes. switched of the appliance, took out the remaining portion of the cut half of the tomato, and sliced it into desired slices of desired dimensions with my own hands with my trustworthy kitchen knife. The thing is philips processor 7625 cannot slice any other vegetable other than long vegetables like carrots and cucumbers. But suppose the carrot or cucumber's breadth is more than 4 cm, you will have to discard/cut off any additional breadth that does not fit into the 4 cm of the feeding tube. Say the cucumber is 8 inches long and 3 inches wide, you will have to shear off/slice off like 1.5 inches of the breadth of the cucumber. Next is what you will do with the last 1 inch of the cucumber or carrot. You will have to take it out manually and slice this last 1 inch of vegetable yourself. The food processor will not do that for you. So what was the use of the food processor in the first place. You can do that with your kitchen knife. Let me tell you frankly. This is a low priced food processor. You cannot expect it to make your kitchen life better in every expect. Like time consumption and effort. The time you save in processing food, you will spend in cleaning the device. Now let me tell you frankly. I have used the device in shredding vegetables and slicing and mixing semi-dry preparation of curry leaves. The device scores in the department in shredding. It does not score in slicing vegetables other than long ones like carrots( you can forget about cucumber, the average width of cucumber exceeds 4cms ), and you will have to take care of the last 1 inch of the long vegetable manually. Mixing. It is not good for mixing semi-dry preparations and I suspect it will not be good enough in preparing a preparation calling for finely divided ice like say a smoothie; the ice will float on the surface and will not be broken (I think, I have not tested it).
Now to conclusions from my limited experience from limited exposure to the device
The device shreds well
The inserts are useless (i.e. slicing is useless, I don't know about the granulating insert with dry and wet; I don't know about the medium shredding insert with dry and wet; I don't know about the granulating insert with dry and wet)
I don't know about the emulsifying disc
I don't know about the kneading accessory
The mixer is not good for semi-dry preparations
and will not be good for breaking ice in the mixer itself (in my opinion)
The pusher is useless as it is good only for long, narrow vegetables with maximum diameter of 4 cm.
Final words: So for the price you get a good shredder for a small family and a mixer that does not do semi-dry and ice shredding
Go for higher priced varieties if you can afford. And I suspect the competition is as good as philips at the same price front. i.e. at this price you will get the same shredding capabilities and same slicing and mixing capability. There is nothing to differentiate between philips and the competition except perhaps the material used in construction of the device. Your choice. First you decide what you want the food processor do with your vegetables (different kinds of vegetables that is) and then decide if the food processor is able to do the same while at the same time saving on your valuable time (please calculate the time you will spend in cleaning the device). If you come to the conclusion that it is worthwhile to buy a food processor of any make (whether it be philips or one of it's competitors), then you decide which make of food processor with what capabilities you will buy, then you search and research the food processor that will serve you best, then you buy it from the vendor offering you the lowest price with all the warranties and guarantees.
