Caution-This machine is big! It is solid and has a good footing, strong motor and sharp chopping/blades. The machines design is easy to clean but I was shocked with the size and bulk of it. It performs as expected. Now for the bowls- I have not experienced the problems with chipping that others have, and I treat it like a work horse. Into the dishwasher EVERY time. I don't like the mini bowl. It leaks inside the large bowl and frankly is a waste of time and storage space. The feeding chutes design catches food and you can't clean it out. I need a second machine for a second dwelling- I ordered a curse art but it's cheap plastic, thin blades and too lightweight so I'm sure it will walk when used- it's going back. Looks like another kitchen aide with bowl design flaws is on its way to my house.

I enjoyed using the KitchenAid food processor - it did a great job. I shredded cheese to have on hand in a Lock and Lock, and all kinds of other uses. My food processor's motor worked well without issue.
However, just as Nonnie stated, the plastic pieces of the food processor started chipping off in random places. If I had dropped it or mishandled it I could have understood, but I took good care of it. It was very frustrating. I had the blue one.
Unfortunately, because I believed in the KitchenAid product quality, I gave one to each of my 3 girls who were married and interested in cooking. I'm hoping that didn't happen to them as well. I ended up throwing mine out because I don't like things that are falling apart.

Had this processor for about a year and a half. I'm very careful, and still the plastic started breaking off in little pieces around the catch. Also the processor just seemed to die. The light went on but didn't process. Not worth the time, aggravation and expense to return.
Cusinart didn't fare much better. Bought the Ninja and just returned it. Its great for strictly blending, but no slicing attachment. Also you can't coarsely chop. I really don't want to spend over $150.00 especially since I've already tried these "reputable" brands. I;m thinking about the Vitamix but $500.00 is just wayyy more than I want to spend. Has anyone had their processor for more than 5 years? If so what kind. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
