Very Loud!!! Had to replace the Bowl because it broke and didn't know that the center post that comes out of bowl didn't come with the Bowl. So had to order that piece, which isn't even listed in the owners manual as a Part at all. Between those two parts, I have paid almost the same as what the original Food Processor in whole cost me. Replacement parts are ridiculously expensive!!! Wouldn't ever recommend to anyone to purchase this unit,EVER!!!
