Firstly yes I know there is something better on the market called a thermomix, I just can't afford that so I'm only interested in this one. What I'd really like to know is:
How big can it chop things, eg. Can I use it to make chunky soups or to chop up the bits for a fried rice?
Is it ok at milling flour?
How does it stack up in quality against say a good food processor? I don't have a food processor so I've decided I at least need one of them.
My son has multiple food intolerances so I find I need to make so much from scratch and I think this would really help save me time, which I am in short supply of with two under threes. But $800 is a lot of money so its a big decision for me and a rare luxury item.
