KitchenAid 13 Cup 3-in-1 Wide Mouth Food Processor w/ Accessories
Not Reliable After 1 Year
I've never had a problem with Kitchenaid in the past, but here I am. I loved my 13 cup food processor gloss cinnamon. After 1 year of slightly being used, the low and high buttons don't work. And when I get them to work, the machine seizes up. Now what? I do a lot of canning and rely on this machine.
Works great, well made, love the organization for all the accessories. The box keeps all the accessories neat & clean. The only thing I'd change is how HUGE the processor is. I have a small kitchen with limited counter space. It is a very substantial product. It is not only wide but tall. If you read the directions, you won't have any trouble operating the unit. The only reason I didn't recommend it as a gift is that it is so large (unless recipient has a large kitchen with large counter space). My favorite part of the unit is that I can set the thickness to what I want & it couldn't be easier to set another thickness (just slide the gauge).
I've had this awhile now but kept bypassing it and going back to my knife for chopping; boy was that foolish on my part! I was in a chili competition for charity recently. I started my chili LATE the night before dreading all the chopping of onions & various peppers I needed to do and then out of the corner of my eye was my KA food processor! I had everything chopped and into the pot within minutes! I can't believe it took me so long to actually use this....it is now my go to appliance and I'm about to purchase 3 of the 9 cup models for my kids!
PS I placed 2nd in the competition!
Stopped functioning after 15 seconds of use
Was super excited to get this food processor as Ive been wanting one for a long long time. Attempted to chop up some onions and green pepper, it stopped functioning after 15 seconds. Returned for a full refund.

This unit broke down on its maiden voyage and refused to restart. I was making hummus and the family was gathered around watching. Everyone laughed at me for buying such an expensive, broken food processor. Ended up throwing out the partially blended hummus.
I never write reviews, so for me to be sitting here typing this up says something. I used to trust QVC to bring me the best value. Trust gone. Long-time customer lost. End of story.

I was really excited about this food processor. On the 5th time I used it, it quit working. QVC is refunding my money, which is good. I am just really bummed!

Sorry to see some have had issues. This product is AMAZING! Have started eating Paleo. Love the 13 cup capacity. Made a HUGE bowl of cauliflower taboulleh in no time. Made spaghetti with zucchini instead of pasta and processing the zucchini was a breeze. Sweet potato and yam chips thinly slice in a heartbeat. Find it very easy to use and clean. Having SO much fun. Thank you Kitchen Aid.
Problems after 1 yr. with product
Definitely a good price. I had an issue with stem on which the blades sits on. It got stuck within one of the blades and was no longer usable. Luckily we're still under Warranty. However, nothing to do with QVC but Kitchen Aide just could not get it right in replacing the damaged product. After having to send back the replacement due to motor issues right out of the box. We're now on our 3rd and hopefully 3 is the charm.... :-) So, buyer beware when dealing with Kitchen Aide.
multi blade stuck
on my second use of the thing, the multi-blade stuck. I got a very deep cut on my finger trying to get it out. Sent it back. Couldn't pack it properly since the blade was stuck so had to pay more to ship back. Totally inconvenient. I guess Kitchen aid is not what it used to be. I do not review normally, but thought if you do not have time to make returns, then buyer beware.
Awesome Food Processor
Love my food processor. It's quiet and easy to use. The adjustable slicer works wonderful. Slices thin pickles and onions for making bread and butter pickles. You will not be disappointed with this product.
One of my best purchases ever
Just awesome....Such a handy & versatile piece of kitchenware.
Wonderful kitchen accessory!
I am really not sure why there have been a few not so wonderful reviews on this product. I think it is great. I had a 25 y.o. KA 7 cup processor for about 25 years. After asking it to do probably far more than I should have expected of it, it finally started to die. The motor runs like a charm but other parts had cracked.
After coveting this one for so long, I finally ordered it. It is fantastic. Actually, I have had to get used to the speed of this. I thought my old one was fast but this is amazing. As far as it's size goes, yes it is large but the foot print is not much bigger than my old one. And, if you are in to making dough in a processor as I am, you really need one this size.
The other complaint I have see is that it is complicated. I don't feel that is so. There is one piece that is used only with the adjustable slicing disc; simple.
So, if you want a wonderful helping hand in the kitchen, I would highly recommend. You cannot do better on the price; I saw it on sale in another big name store for $199.. I am really happy that I made the purchase through QVC when I did.
