This machine is not only attractive but does as it says it will beautifully. I chose this machine as I need a strong machine that could handle pulping very sticky dates, enabling me to make my own raw bars. So I was very relieved when the very quiet, 2000 watt motor had no issue with this task. I love the storage box, all the accessories have there own set compartment and it looks good too. Each piece of this appliance is well made, blades are very sharp (take care), easy to attatch and wash up. The instruction booklet is helpful and easy to follow too. I am very pleased with my buy.
