Every Breville product begins with a simple moment of brilliance.

The Breville Sous Chef began with the observation that the food comes in many different shapes and sizes, making it difficult for one machine to consistently cut all ingredients into the optimal size pieces.

So how do you make sure that you get the perfect size for what you’re cooking?

The Breville Sous Chef solves this problem with its unique design. Its wide feed chute makes it possible to slice vegetables of all shapes and sizes, while numerous disc and blade options makes it easy to get perfect results, any way you slice it.

    This unit was purchased in March of 2015. By November of 2016 the dough blade had drilled a hole through the lid and fused itself to the unit. Breville replaced the unit, but due to a backlog of orders, I didn’t receive the processor until December 2016. In the meantime I purchased a Cuisinart processor and continued to use that until this spring. I just recently unboxed the replacement Breville processor and have only been using it for about the last four months. Two days ago while making pizza dough, the dough blade drilled a hole through the lid of the food processor and fused the lid to the blade and the body of the processor. I’ve requested a full refund. This product has some very serious design flaws. It is certainly not worth the high price Breville is charging. This product should be completely redesigned before it ruins Breville’s good name! I’m very disappointed by this product and will not be purchasing from Breville again.

    The main bowl cracks in normal use where it attaches to the base, causing the machine to not function at all. The first time this happened replacements were available. They are reasonably priced. No big deal.The second time this happened was during the holidays last year (November). We have been a waiting list for a new main bowl since then. It’s August of the following year. Absolutely do not buy this under any circumstances without verifying that replacement main bowls are in stock. And, frankly, if you’re going to invest this much, you should go ahead and buy several spare main bowls if you find them in stock. Because it’s trash otherwise.FWIW we (family of eight, nearly always cook from scratch at home) replaced this with a $50 Hamilton Beach while waiting for the main bowls to be back in stock. It works fine.

    We were really excited to get the sous chef after our 30 yr. old Cuisinart started circling the drain. It’s really nice looking, and it worked great for about 5 times. Then the bowl started leaking because a crack developed where the gear housing comes up from the center of the bowl. OK, well I’ve only had it about 90 days, I’m sure it won’t be a problem. The FIRST TIME I called Breville, I was ON HOLD FOR 46 MINUTES before someone answered the phone. When I asked what their problem was, and why didn’t they have any employees to answer the phone, I was told that the wait was long because it was Monday morning. Then they told me they would happily replace my bowl under warranty, but the MIXING BOWLS WERE OUT OF STOCK FOR A MONTH. About a month later, I still hadn’t received my new bowl yet. So I called Breville a SECOND TIME, this time on a Wednesday afternoon, and I waited ON HOLD FOR 1 HOUR AND 5 MINUTES before some poor slob decided to answer the phone. I was so infuriated that I had to waste two hours of my time on hold because of the complete arrogance of this company, I swore right then and there that I would never purchase another Breville product as long as I lived. It’s been SIX WEEKS since my bowl cracked and I STILL DO NOT HAVE A NEW BOWL, and no one knows when they are coming in. This is the sorriest excuse of a customer service department that I have ever seen. Not only that, judging by the unprecedented amount of time I had to spend on hold listening to an endless loop of completely annoying Muzak before someone even answered the friggin telephone, this company either has an incredibly high failure rate of their products, or they have a severely deficient management team. But to NOT ANSWER THE PHONE and then NOT HAVE THE MIXING BOWL IN STOCK FOR OVER A MONTH is just stupid and inexcusable, especially when your $400 sous chef is MADE IN CHINA.UPDATE: It has now been OVER FOUR MONTHS and I still have not received my replacement bowl. Are you SERIOUS? For sure, Breville has replaced ATT as the worst customer service in the universe. I waited on hold for ONLY 38 MINUTES to be told that the bowl would be delivered in a couple of weeks, but as I mentioned above, it’s already been over four months, so I knew they were just lying to me again. I finally demanded a refund for this worthless piece of garbage. Breville. Never again.UPDATE: I finally received my replacement bowl. It was almost six months before they finally got them back in stock again. Breville did replace the bowl under warranty. I was so exasperated, Breville agreed to refund my purchase for the unit and as the transaction was being processed, they notified me that they had finally received the replacement bowls. I was ambivalent about the entire situation, because on the one hand, when the unit is working, it’s absolutely fabulous. On the other hand, it was inexcusable that I had to wait 6 months for a replacement bowl when Breville was already on notice that there was an issue with the bowl cracking down where the chuck goes through the middle of the bowl. So I decided to purchase a second replacement bowl as well, so that at least I would have a back up if the new one cracked, because this really is the best unit on the market for the price. It has a 4hp motor, for one thing. So, I ended up giving Breville a reprieve and I will try it again. But seriously, if you know you need replacement parts for a design defect in one of your more popular models, it was incumbent upon whoever is in charge of those things to get on top of the situation and not make people wait six months for parts. That’s just stupid.

    You’d think for the price it would work for more than 6 months, but that’s not the case. I don’t use a food processor often, maybe 2-3 times a week on average, and when it worked, it worked great. However, right around the 6 month mark, I noticed the motor seemed to be getting louder and louder. When I went to take the lid off, the blade came with it! It had turned in the “holder” in the lid so hard and fast that it melted the plastic and the shaft of the blade was stuck in it. I called Breville and got an exchange, figuring it was a fluke. The second one I got, on the second use, started to do the exact same thing so I stopped using it and called Breville again. They said they would not refund my money but would give me an exchange again. Why do I want that??? So I can get more plastic in my food??? Since it’s past the Amazon return date, I guess I’ll just keep returning and getting exchanges from Breville until they figure out it’s not worth it.Save your money and don’t buy this item.

    My husband purchased this food processor as a gift which was wonderful, however after three uses the plastic mount which the bowl sets on began to crack and eventually broke into pieces. When I called customer service they were great and sent me another right away. The second one lasted about 4 uses and the same mount cracked and broke off. The third one and then the fourth one.. need I say more. This is a defective product. I am now sending it back to get a full refund. I will have to say customer service has been great!

    Better than cuisinart, but still pretty flawed. The main bowl cannot be submerged in water to clean! The handle is hollow and water remains in the handle if submerged. Are you kidding me! Really bad. The other thing is the inner bowl is a gimmick. You will be taking it out and finding a place for it on your counter every time! Anything you can do in the inner bowl you can do better in the main bowl. So, you will be finding a place to store that thing. The machine controls do not inspire confidence. They haven’t even programmed the thing to shut down after sitting there idle forever! Attention to detail is really lacking on this product. Unfortunately that’s the case with most industrial design these day. Race to the bottom. Not sure what other options there are. Cuisinart is total junk these days. I went through 3 of them.23 aug. my update after using it daily since purchasing. it is useful but the bottom has now cracked. i am about to order a replacement part. luckily it is inexpensive. I also had the adjustable slices blade start to melt on some carrot slicing. my assessment hasn’t really changed. useful unit but poor design and terrible build quality.

    Have been using this item regularly for the past 3 years and have had to Gorilla Glue the main locking portion on the base 3 times. Replace the bowl now twice and this time the bowl is on back order with no idea of when it will be back in stock. For the amount I paid for this “Professional” food processor, I am very disappointed in its durability

    After owning this processor for the past 18 months I have to say we’ve loved it. It’s never been placed in the dishwasher always hand washed. Unfortunately today I discovered a large crack at the bottom of the bowl where the spindle is attached. Hopefully it won’t be ridiculously expensive to have a new one ordered. I like the case so I don’t have pieces floating around. That was the primary reason I purchased this model. However, I have to say it’s not worth quite what I payed when it cracks after 18 months. Or less as some people have mentioned.

    I was about to recommend this to my mother who has another namebrand that has been nothing but trouble. Then I saw all the complaints about cracked bowls and went to check mine. Sure enough, there is a crack on one side and another one starting on the other side. I use this food processor very little (less than once/month over three years) and never put the plastic pieces in the dishwasher. I had a smaller mini processor of a different brand that lasted me >10 years that was much cheaper. Not impressed anymore. Would not buy another Breville product. At this price, that bowl should last the life of the machine.

    OK. The other day I wrote a review stating don’t purchase this machine. I used the French fries blade to cut my beets. The blade broke & the machine was vibrating so bad it almost bounced off the table.So I wanted to returned the machine & noticed I was over my 30 days so now I am stuck with it.NEW REVIEW!I called Breville to tell them the blade broke in 2 minutes of use. The company was so helpful. He is sending me a new blade & showed me the list in the manual of vegetables & the appropriate blade to use.So far I will give this machine & company a great review. The next time I use the machine I will update my review with more detail.

    Got this 16 cup food processor about a week ago. So far I have mixed dark fruit cake, sliced and diced several kilos of veggies for coleslaw and soups, made frozen desserts and used the mini bowl and small s-blade to make sauces.At first I was reluctant to get this model because I am used to two speed machines. This machine only has one speed (super fast) but I have still been able to do traditional slow mode tasks using the pulse button. In the new year I’ll get around to making breads and doughs. I do not have a stand mixer so I hope the blades do not significantly heat up the dough. I’ll update this review on cookie, pizza and bread dough preformance soon.While it’s still too early to comment on the longevity of the machine it seems to be quite robust. I really appreciate the metal gearing at the bottom of the work bowl and the base is both sturdy and well designed with places to grab when moving it. Unlike some other machines I tried, it doesn’t leak and better still you can remove the rubber sealing gasket to clean it properly. I only hand wash this appliance and compared to many food processors this is very easy to do. The storage caddy for the shredding, slicing and french fry blades is good too and also keeps the included brush and spatula organized.Everything has worked well and almost effortlessly aside from the cleanup. This machine is so fast that it’s almost a no brainier to whip it out even for smaller jobs. If I had more counter space, it would be a permanent resident. The results with consistent technique are excellent and repeatable a credit to the induction motor. Some lesser powered models can cycle and bog down resulting in uneven results. That’s not a problem here.If Breville only had made the mini bowl more vertical instead of sloped at the top it would be an even better product.Another difference (but not necessarily an inconvenience) are the lack of hole(s) for dribbling in olive oil and the like for emulsions. Instead you get a small plunger that you can unscrew the top of to measure the oil with.This really is a great machine and when on sale an excellent buy. P.S. All the models in this line are the same, the only difference is the paint job.

    When using the dough blade the blade pin gets heated up too much. With just a few uses it has melted away the plastic slot on the lid and deformed it to the extent that no other blade can now fit in the machine. Also, the melted plastic has made a layer on the dough blade so it can’t fit the lid even if the lid is replaced. The customer support is not responding. The machine is still under warranty and I want a refund or at least a replacement of the lid and the dough blade.

    Bought this Nov 26 2018. It has worked flawlessly for a year and 6 days. On day 6, some sort of retaining washer has been found in the motor unit (see pics).Try to contact Breville by phone-wait, wait, wait etc so I leave my number for call back. In meantime, I try to submit email request using their forum. Won’t accept a date past 1 year so I use tomorrows date. You need to enter a “batch” number found on the bottom of the motor. I do but their system says it’s invalid.It is possible to leave it blank so I do but include a note in “comments”.Interesting to see how this issue is resolved as it is 6 days past warranty expiration. Will update when they respond.

    I had a Black & Decker 2018 very bad quality and very very noisy, and then a Kitchenaid 2019 it kept stopping (new security feature) but very annoying when you are making hummus or any type of frozen fruit mousse, it took forever.Breville ….. expensive, however, worth the money. Beautiful look, very solid, stays in place when one uses it, very smooth, quiet, easy to clean, good quality, powerful … I only have good things to say about this food processor. A must in the kitchen. I am very happy with Breville : )

    This is, by far, the best food processor I have ever used. If the price tag is scaring you, like it did to me at first, it’s totally understandable. I took a chance and ordered it (on sale luckily) and I do not regret it for a second. This thing is a monster. I like to make almond butter. Previous food processors would overheat and make too much noise. This beast is pretty quiet and finished the job in no time.I highly recommend this product. It is completely worth the extra few dollars. This thing is superior to other food processors.
