KitchenAid 13 Cup 3-in-1 Wide Mouth Food Processor w/ Accessories
Buttons are EXTREMELY hard to push, my wife can't even use it! Hard to clean without a dishwasher, lots of parts and pieces. Feed tube difficult to clean. Should have bought a more basic model.
Amazing Food Processor!
I love, love this appliance! Its so quiet compared to any other processor ive ever had and does an amazing job quickly!
I have several KitchenAid applicances and love them however was greatly disappointed with my 13 cup food processor. I bought one a few years ago and after using it a couple of times it quit runing. I was told to call Kitchen Aid and was told to send it back for repair. It cost me over a hundred dollars for the repair and was told they had to replace my bowls because one was cracked. Like others I found it very difficult to put together and just did not use it very much. That is why my warranty had run out and I had to pay the repair bill. About a year later my sister gave me hers because she just didn't use it and she had had it over a year and had only used it once. I loved it because it was red and had the leaver in front adjusting the thickness of the slices. I used it a couple of times and like my first processor it just quit running. Again it was over a year old and warrenty is out so it is packed away in my cupboard.
I hate this machine. It is heavy and difficult to use. The top pieces cracked with the second use. I could kick myself for tossing out my tried and true Cusinart. I am now tossing out the Kitchen Aid and my new Cusinart is on its way.

Have wanted a. Good mixer for years and was happy to get one in red. Have not had
Much time to cook as I got injured over a year ago and am having to
Learn to use my rt hand again. Am still working at it but know that
The mixer will make my cooking easier.
Since my doctor recommended I cut out grains, I have been using a cheese grater to shred cauliflower into "rice." It was delicious, so I put up with the labor-intensive process. No more! I can shred a whole head of cauliflower in a minute or so! Then I can just rinse and put in the top rack of the dishwasher, and its done!
It is important to read the instructions, though. I could see how it could get confusing or things would not work right if you didn't. Certain "adapters" go with certain blades or disks, and you have to pay attention or things could go wrong. Overall, very heppy with this purchase!
NOT A GOOD VALUE
Bought this 2012 first we could not get together called QVC they said call KitchenAid. They say take the red seal out of top that helped. When you use it everything stays in the top never in the bowl. Worst thing ever bought. Thought it would help since one hand does not work that well very disappointed. Sent one back second did the same thing have not used in a year.
Tough on Arthritic Hand/Wrists, Hard to Clean
Bought (2) of these; one for me and one for my daughter in law. Returned them both. The parts are not easy to put together and the food gets stuck in the lid.
Does so much
I ordered the KitchenAid as my first full-sized food processor. I love the versatility of the appliance and the accessory case is a great feature too. My only complaint is the mini bowl does not seal tightly and food being processed in the mini leaks around the rim into the large bowl. Defeats the purpose of using the smaller bowl when the larger one still gets dirty and has to be washed. I'm still using my old mini processor for small jobs. This one really fits the bill for big jobs though. Very quiet and sturdy. Beautiful appliance and delivered fast and well packaged, as always, by QVC.
Mine has issues
Disapointed in this. When I finally get it put together, making sure all locks are in place, when i turn it on, the lid vibrates loose making it stop. I have to hold the lid in place to run it. so I need a third hand. Wish I had sent it back.
I love it
I wanted one for a long time, but wasn't sure about it.. When the shipping was free and 6 flex pays, I got mine.. I sliced my cucumbers and shredded my cabbage.. They came out so good and was exactly like it said it would do.. So easy to use and clean... I love, love it so much.. Love the small and big bowl.. So easy to use after you read the instructions.. Isn't hard to put together at all.. I'm so happy with mine...
There isn't any meal I make where I don't use this! Sometimes it's a bit big for the task @ hand but for me all tasks are huge because I have Lupus & RA. Both diseases are doing a number on my joints so just cutting some peppers is like an insurmountable chore for me & I'm a thick headed Cuban who HATES to ask for help! LOL! From the second I took it out of the box it's been a piece of cake to use & the manual that comes w/ it is quite helpful. I suggest to folks who order things from QVC to open & use as soon as you get it! That way if there is an issue you can return & exchange it thru QVC. They have a fabulous group of folks there & from prior experience on another item - they will fix your problem immediately - as long as you follow their 30 day policy! Fav thing about QVC purchases is Flex Pay!
