Rated 5 out of 5 by wornout French fry cutter
I like to bake homemade French fries for my family. I usually make 2 half sheet pans at a time. I have tried multiple products to cut French fry shapes in the past that did not work well. Some cut the fries too small and they get even smaller when baking. One chopper was too difficult to use. I had to get my son in law to push it through and it was a work out for him, and he is a body builder. So I had decided to just cut them with a knife. After I bought the kitchen aid food processor and was confident that I liked it I decided to give the additional blade set a try. I doubted that the fries would be large enough.
I was very pleased that the fries are a nice size . These are not McDonald fry size but are like the Really nice diner fries that I was looking for. If you put a potato in horizontally in the wide mouth opening and use on high speed you get long substantial fries. The slicing blade was at the widest but I don't think that it really made a difference. I am very pleased and will use often. It is important to remember that iif something is difficult to get a knife through that it will also be hard to get a blade through. I doubt I will try a butternut squash with this as I can barely cut them with a knife. Maybe if I microwaved slightly before but otherwise you are setting yourself up for failure. If you have a potato get stuck. Unplug and pull it out of teeth of blade slowly and use high speed and with an attitude. Don't be timid. Thank you for making a blade that really works. I am sure it will work for the Parmesan cheese. I tried it for ice. Again I did not think it would work but it did. Grinding ice is loud and it sounds like you are grinding rocks but it worked. You get a thicker grind like you do on a ice that you buy for the kids. Which I wanted but is a lot of work to get enough for a houseful of people. It is not the fine ice powder like you get with ninja or high speed blender, it is more like the shaved ice. I really like these blades.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda FV Great Fries and Grated Parmesan
Got these today and couldn't wait to try them out. Having homemade Italian Sauce with pasta for dinner. So the Parmesan Blade Disc was up! It grated the hard rock of a piece of cheese block without a problem. Very fine grating. I then had to do a potato for fries to try out the French Fry Blade Disc. Cut a large russet potato very easily. Am well pleased!! Also, wanted to tell others that these blades are compatible with the Kitchenaid KFP1356GC 13 Cup Food Processor offered on QVC
I am a very happy with this purchase!.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jeaninefp Best Purchase I Ever Made!
Used it tonight with the dicing kit to cut potatoes up for a stew. Took me less time to cut up 7 potatoes than it took me to cut up one any other time. I have severe arthritis in my hands and I'm always looking for things to make my kitchen prep easier. I have finally found the ultimate kitchen tool! And what a deal money wise! The dicing kit alone is $179 direct from KitchenAid, so $199 for this entire set up is simply unreal!!! I purchased a cover independently for this food processor so that I can keep it out on my counter top at all times. I can see life getting so much easier for me!!! Thanks QVC!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dkshan Great addition to my other KA disks
Used both disks over the weekend. First grated a block of Parmesan cheese. Used to use the mixer attachment but this works so much faster and more shredded with this. I only had two very little pieces that didn't actually shred. Still learning on the French Fry disk. A little disappointed that my first try wasn't a complete success but should have watch the "How to" video first on the 9 cup processor. May have to trim your potato down to fit the shoot. Over all, I am very satisfied though.
