Philips Food processor HL1659 5 jar 750W lavender intelligent
It's been 3 years since I bought this food processor and I am happy with the performance so far except for a few hassles. I purchased this processor as it was a great combination of mixer grinder and food processor. it is very sturdy, durable, safe and it's 750W power motor is ideal for Indian food preparation. it is very good for atta kneading, batter making, chopping, slicing, masala grinding etc. However a few design features and functionalities do tend to pose hiccups while using it. The adjustable arm does give problems with chutney jar. Sometimes it gets jammed and sometimes it does not lock properly. So I have to hold it while using it. The blender jar and processor bowl plastic is not good quality. it would be really great if the blender jar was made of glass with ice crushing feature and measurement scale on it. The overall look n feel could be improvised to make it look smarter. On the whole it is a good food processor but I am still looking forward for a better model in future.

Not so silent, clumsy but works for me minus the coconut grating option
I bought this because of the "Silent" operation promise. But it is not silent. Nothing much to complain about other than that. I knew it did not have the coconut grating option when I bought it but it would be nice to have that.
Setting up the processor can be a little time consuming - especially when using the food processor mode to make dough or grate vegetables. Fixing the arm is not as easy as I would like it to be.
Signs of rust over 2 years of use are seen - especially in the jars that I have used least.

A wasteful and complicated design
1. The robotic arm is a waste. It complicates the usage. Even with the robotic arm the chutney jar spills out if the quantity is a little extra. I had a chutney bath in the morning :(
2. The transparent plastic parts are very brittle. You really need to be very careful. Once dropped -- broken..
Bought this product with high expectations but disappointed

I like the product design & performance, but we need full demo or instruction manual which would help us to complete use of the product with safe,,.. request you to help us on this. Also let me know do we get accessories to do more use of this product like to make finger chips, etc.. because I don't find the finger chips attachment, citrus attachment.. etc.

Main problem with this machine is we cannot prepare juices of all kinds. For example carrots, radish, etc.
Company shall design and provide the Juices preparing attachment to all existing and future users.
there are unnecessary attachments with the product that can be eliminated.

Best for daily use
We are using this product since 2 years. we are running it daily for kneading dough and chopping. Only problem with this machine is we cannot prepare juices of all kinds. For example we tried to prepare juice of carrots but it only got grounded and nothing came out. we heard that carrots juice can be prepared in other food processors. So, if juices are your prority then better opt for other machines.
Our priority was preparing dough and chopping for daily use. and we found this product is best in market.
Also we were told during purchase that motor works silently but we found that it makes lot of noise.

Kitchen's best friend
Yes, its the best friend of the kitchen. Chop or cut any vegetables with in couple of minutes. Prepares atta for roti in no time and doesnt stick around the vessel and easy to clean. Initially setting up the processor was one of the biggest task. Later got used to it. Setting up now takes no time. The best feature about the device I liked the most is its smart. If the processor is not locked properly, it would start,which makes it safe and avoids accidents in the kitchen
