KitchenAid 13 Cup 3-in-1 Wide Mouth Food Processor w/ Accessories
I have one of those wonderful Kitchen Aid Food 3-in-1 Processors, and love it, I do a large amount of home canning and this has been a huge time safer, with just the carrot slicing and anything else you want to do large qtys of processing, Every day use is huge time saver also. I gave my old one that does not adjust to my daughter and she loves that one.
I had an old processor that does not have half of the features this one has. I really needed to update and very happy I chose Kitchenaid. This processor is in my opinion the best one available in the retail market. What a great price for all you get.
Best Processor Owned!
This is the best food processor I've owned and for the money you pay to get additional accessories you can't beat it! I love everything about this machine from the ease of use to the noise level. KitchenAid has great products and this is definately one of them!
Love this Food Processor!
I use this machine every day! I didn't find the food processor complicated or confusing. LOVE the 4 c. mini bowl for pesto, salad dressing, gremolata, chicken or seafood salads, chopped veggies for meatloaf, or any other dish I'm cooking. With this machine, I can get more veggies into all of my meals. I've made bread, pizza crust, salsas, scones, marinara sauce, salad, cole slaw, you name it in the main work bowl. I can't wait to make sorbet! I've always been a KA fan and I really enjoy using this machine.
Not what I expected
I'm sorry to say that I was very disappointed with the dough mixing blade. It only mixes the center of the bowl, I had to constantly stop the mixer, remove the complicated plastic top, and drag the flour from the outside of the bowl to the inside. It does a wonderful job of slicing and dicing, but my manual slicer does too. I will try the next step up on the kitchen aid line because I do a lot of baking and cooking and I need top kitchen tools!
Everything works well. It is so easy to chop anything. The unit is heavy and does not move on the counter. I am very pleased.
Complicated and Disappointing Product
I thought long and hard before making this purchase. I knew the people at America's Test Kitchen had used this product, so that was all the convincing I needed. I have other KA products and have always found them to be excellent. First and foremost, the manual is not user-friendly. The machine is hard to assemble with its various parts, and nothing goes together intuitively. Food gets stuck in the rim, the food is processed somewhat unevenly. I still have to clean the big bowl when the small bowl is used. The machine is very lightweight. The keypad is difficult to press, especially if pulsing is desired. There is absolutely nothing I like about this machine. I had a Cuisinart which was so much better and easier to use. I am stuck with this food processor and could kick myself for ordering it. Don't make the mistake I did! I wish I had bought a new Cuisinart instead.
I am so surprised this Processor does not work. Love all my other Kitchen Aid appliances.
Thought my outlet was bad, but no it was the Mashine. It is not a cheap item, would have thought Kitchen Aid made a better Food Prosessor.
I will have to replace it, but not with Kitchen Aid....
Absolutely LOVE it!!!!!!!'
I've been cooking since a little girl, but have always done everything by hand. Purchased this item to help with time in the kitchen because being a mom of 4 time with them is important. What was I thinking??? Haha. This is absolutely the best purchase ever!!!!!! Love this product and recommend to all.
A couple years I did a lot of research on food processors. The KA was rated really good but was very expensive. I found one a little smaller and much cheaper rated really good. I had been using that one. It worked great but putting it together and taking it apart was extremely difficult. I had major surgery in 2013 and it just became to tough. I have a KA stand mixer that I love and have owned a long time. I had seen the KA food processor in stores and had taken them apart and put them back together in the store. I still didn't want to spend that kind of money when I had a processor that worked. Using my old one the other day something cracked. It still worked but the next day QVC had the KA food processor on and I ordered it. I just received it and already have used it a couple of times. Boy oh boy am I happy with it. Extremely easy to put together and take apart. I love the storage container for the parts. I didn't have that before. All in all I'm a idiot for not buying this unit earlier. KA is fantastic. QVC always has a good price and nice "Extras".
Worth Every Penny
Super quite, quick, and precise ...if you are considering it but not sure or hesitating you will not regret this purchase!
Didn't have this product 1 1/2 months before the plastic spindle inside the main blade broke. past the 30 day mark so I had to order the blade. WAS NOT CHEAP.
