    1. Shilpa, yes it does. I have accidentally cut myself on one of those blades and it not only hurts but bleeds a lot in a quick hurry usually making me lightheaded and queasy. I was fortunate my daughter was nearby to bandage it and apply pressure. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

  9. And this is one of the main reasons I haven't purchased a blender or food processor, which I desperately need. I'm too clumsy.
