The basic machine comes in three parts. Part 1is the actual Braun CombiMax Food Processor, part 2 French Fry System, and part 3 Coarse Slicing Insert. As you can see from the picture above, there is quite a variety of blades that can be attached to the unit in order to maximize the versatility of this item. Additionally, this food processor comes with a universal bowl that can be sealed to prevent leakage when the unit is in use, a cream whipping tool, to make your own whipped cream, and a stainless stell shredding disc and a slicing disc.
Another feature that is not listed with the food processor is the years of service you’ll get out of this machine. Many previous owners of Braun food processor have stated that their machines have lasted years and years (into decades) and that is why they purchased another one after the last one broke.
Other features that the food processor has is it’s great at making juice, yet it’s not something that is advertised on the product promo. It can make dough like nobody’s business. The bowl holds a large capacity of food and has a safety lid that can be trusted to stay on.
Cleaning the Braun is very easy, and it’s dishwasher safe. Another favorite with users is the variable speed. It makes a difference if you just want to chop vegetables as opposed to pureeing them. So, this is a very handy feature. It also has a pulse, for those times that you want to coarsely cut vegetables or fruits. It has a wide feed tube which can accommodate the vast majority of vegetables and fruits you are most likely to use with the machine. It does not have a complex lockout system that other food processors seem to have. This can be distracting if you don’t do it just righ tin other food processor, because the machine won’t start at all. However, the safety catch on this machine is very forgiving. It is not child proof, but honestly, children have no business being near a food processor.
The one drawback to the machine is that apparently, Braun will no longer be making these units available in the United States in the future. You can get replacement parts online, but there won’t be any future modles. However, with Braun’s reputation for stability, this machine should last you for years to come.
