KitchenAid 13 Cup 3-in-1 Wide Mouth Food Processor w/ Accessories
Shopped around for quite a while and decided this was the best value for what we needed, it also matched our KitchenAid mixer. So far we have been very pleased with the food processor, it has all the power needed and the adjustable thickness selector works as advertised. My advice to anyone is to make sure the smaller bowel alignment pins are correctly oriented (very important) and read the instructions.
WOW! WOW! WOW!
I was reluctant to purchase this processor due to the reviews. I'm fortunate in that I live about 20 minutes from The Kitchenaid Experience in Greenville, OH. I stopped in to take a look at it "in person". I fell in LOVE. It's a gorgeous machine! Large, beautiful and a power house! Due to QVC's Easy Pay and return policy, I immediately went home and ordered it. I've put it through its paces - chop, grind, slice, dice...fruit, vegetables, pepperoni.... it never missed a beat. I've owned/used a Kitchenaid Professional 670 for over 10 years. I never thought I would see the day I would want to use another machine...until now. This is an awesome food processor!
I Looooove It!!!!! The KitchenAid Queen
I purchased this KitchenAid Food Processor, and I am very excited to say it works great. What a beautiful piece of equipment. Once out of the box I put it together and you better believe I made Banana Bread, which turned out Yummy!!!! it was so easy to use. What I love about this product is that it's "Idoit Proof." The Food Processor won't work until all the pieces are put together correctly which is a great safety feature. Next, I made cupcakes, which turned out perfect. Salads are a breeze!!! It slices, dices and grinds up nuts so yes the Almond butter turned out great. If you've never had a KitchenAid Food Processor, you have to get it, it's quite. I have tested other food processors and they were very loud. Can you tell how excited I am about my KitchenAid Food Processor you will be too!!!!
What A Processor
Not only does it looks good sitting on my counter, but I am now able to get things cut up super fast AND everything is the same size.
This is my first food processor and I couldn't be more pleased. Easy to assemble, easy to use. It has met all my expectations of how a food processor should work. I also love the accessory box so that I can keep track of every thing.
Slicing made easy.
I just used my new Wide Mouth Processor and It did exactly as advertised, I just love it and will be using it frequently. I don't know what some people were complaining about, I have had no trouble with it. Maybe they didn't read the directions???????
My First Food Processor
I love it. The instructions were easy to follow & I am so glad I got this. I have a progressive nerve condition which has made it very hard for me to use my dominant hand so I was cooking less and eating out more, UNTIL NOW!!! Thank you Kitchen Aid and QVC for getting me back in the kitchen and eating healthier.
So far I've only used the slicer, but I downloaded the recipe booklet and plan to use it regularly. Great idea QVC.
If you are contemplating buying this, stop thinking and get it. You will not be disappointed.
Big and Beautiful!
I've been big into making pickles and canning veggies the past few years........and my "C"brand processor was just too small to handle the job. PLUS when I tried to blend lentil soup, it would fill the blade shaft and spill out under the bowl, as well as leak out around the rim.
When I saw the dimension of this processor.......plus the on the fly adjustable slicing thickness.............I was sold.
A pleasant surprise was the seal around the rim.......that was th iceing on the cake.
I anticipate the adjustable slicing will speed my processing as I always had to do the extra thin onion slices by hand to balance them in flavor and crunch in my zucchini pickles.Also, the motor base is light, so I don't fear taking it out of the lower cupboard will strain my back.
Love this purchase
I love the price, the safety features, the color. I had a little trouble at first with putting it together but my parents and my nephew took control and did it. The whole family loves this processer and I like the easy pay. Thanks for a great product.
GREAT, so much flexibility!
I have always loved KitchenAid appliances so when I saw this one I couldn't pass it up. There are lots of safety features that I really appreciate things locking together, the finger holes especially since I have problems holding things, the smaller bowl, and tool storage container.
I just received this today, washed it all, dried, and then learned to put it all together. I must admit even though I have had a KitchenAid stand mixer for 24 yrs. I was concerned from the many that posted they couldn't get it to work and on and on. So I thought I'll see what how hard it is. I was given a different competitors food processor a couple years ago and it's broken now. The attachment drive just snapped from use. I needed to get this one working because I use a food processor almost everyday for just about everything I can.
Putting together was a snap.
The blades when in smoothly, pushed down until I heard the click, put the lid on and away it went. No problem getting any of them in and out. No problem with the smaller bowl features either.
I believe I understand why some are having trouble with the graters or the slicing disk. At first glance the instructions are a little hard to follow. If not looking at the picture it might be missed that one is just the shaft with the slicing adapter that goes onto the drive adapter. The drive adapter is used with the disc slicing blade only! This is the only way to use the slicing thickness in the front.
The shredding disk uses the other adapter. They are both easy to get on and off and using safely.
It's really a matter of making sure things are in place properly, make sure to listen for the click sound and then turning things into the correct position.
I have used other food processors and this one is safe, I love the seal, the large bowl with the flexibility of using the small bowl. It's a win, win for me.
My Hubby didn't get it at first because he was focused on putting the 3 piece together instead of putting one with the power shaft base and then the other one when using the other disc. He has never used a food processor before. When I suggested looking at the pictures he caught the problem and fixed it right away.
I hope this info helps, I love all my KitchenAid appliances. My stand mixer is absolutely the best thing. I even mix a large quantity of meatloaf in the mixer because doing it by hand is hard for me. I had an employee once that did her best to break it and she just couldn't. I've had lots of experiences with my Kitchenaid items.
I am eying the Artisan Raspberry mixer, just because I would love to have something bright and different in my kitchen and maybe I'll pass my older stand mixer down to my youngest daughter so she can learn to use it. :)
Too Bad They Don't Offer Trade in's..
I purchased a KitchenAid a few years ago from QVC. It is nice, but this one looks better.
BE VERY CAREFUL
I had the competitor's food process for over 20 years when it gave out. So I bought this product. It lasted less than a year with all the plastic parts cracking a splitting. I tried to replace them and the cost of the replacements exceeded the product. Went back to the other competitor and have had it for five years without a problem.
Kitchen Aide mixers are the best. The other products: not so much.
