Black & Decker 10 Cup Food Processor Model FP1510
1 Star Review   By member lvfrshslsa427 - Nov 29, 2012   

Strengths: It did an excellent job of chopping and blending.

Weakness: Seal to keep moisture away from shaft in stabalizer plate is faulty. Plastic gear strips as moisture creates rust around bearing and metal shaft. Parts of safety handle on container also break.

This food processor would be repairable if there was a replacement part for it. The motor is fine. If there is a part with a stabalizer plate, shaft w/gear and a new water seal, I could fix the food processor myself. I would order a new container, but if there are no replacements to fix the gear, it is useless.

Strengths: Looks

Weakness: No safety mechanism to protect the internal drive gear in case of abuse... or surely with time will break the gear.

While the look of the product is nice, the thing died very quickly. The universal motor is durable and strong enough to handle the job, but the dinky plastic gear is way too weak (looks like delrin to try to reduce the noise). Mistakenly I turned on the processor while the spare blade and disc stem was inside the unit. The noise was awful and the damage was great. The food chute broke off the tabs and the 10-cup container was marred inside and broke the latching mechanism. While this was an embarrassing mistake for me, as a mechanical engineer myself, it is always my duty to design consumer products to handle this type of user error. This processor is not designed to be forgiving and my guess is that if you do a lot of dough mixing, the gear will not survive very long and you will end with a broken machine in a very short period of time. We'll see how B&D customer service will respond and if they are willing to fix it.
