Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: very solid machine, a real workhorse. Seems to be a good value for the price.
Cons: LEAKS: it handles less than the 10 cup capacity it states.
Summary: I chose this model because it was in the price range I was willing to spend, and of those models in my range it was the most solidly built sturdy unit on display. I also like the Oster brand. This is not a bad unit, but I would recommend reading the ... read more

Pros: quiet and powerful
Cons: no replacement parts available
Summary: I have an Oster 3200 food processor that has a broken bowl and trying to find a replacement part has been, shall I say, A WASTE OF MY TIME! Every service center (20+) that I have called that carries replacement parts for Oster appliances have told me ... read more

Pros: Heavy base with a nice steel case.
Shedder and Blade attachments
10 Cup Compacity
Cons: Buttons feel VERY cheap and Pop
Broke after 1 use.
Poorly designed locking mechanism
Summary: We bought this new at our local Lowes. Upon getting it home, we plugged it up, to make sure it worked. Pressed the On button, then off, pressed the pulse button, then pressed On and the machine quit. It just popped and stopped. No amount of pressing ... read more

Pros: does everything very well, attractive, powerful, quiet.
Cons: bowl is terrible. too many cheap parts that cannot take repeated use before breaking.
Summary: Hefty, powerful, quiet, large capacity. Works well at all tasks. The bowl lock mechanism is over engineered and breaks, which will not allow you to use the blender unless you rig it. The replacement is about 20.00. Very ... read more

Pros: Strong, quiet, visually appealing.
Cons: Poorly designed, easily breakable, bowl and cover.
Summary: I use mine quite a bit, and one of the things I do often is grate cheddar cheese. The last couple brands I owned had a difficult time with this task, but the Oster has a powerful, fairly quiet motor and has no problems. But... I am on my fourth ... read more

Pros: great motor
Cons: You have to keep emptying out the bowl. Too much trouble.
Summary: They claim this is a 10 cup bowl. Well, if you use the shredder and shred more than 2 cups, when you remove the bowl from the motor, everything falls out the center hole. They failed to design the center hole high enough to hold any amount of food. When ... read more

Pros: Nice, sleek styling, solid, powerful.
Cons: The real test of customer service is what you do when things go wrong.
Summary: We recently purchased an Oster 3200 food processor. Initially we loved it -- until we went to used the blade for shredding. They had failed to pack the blade extender in the box so the slicer/grater couldn't be used. I contacted Oster, gave them all ... read more
