Summary: Quick, efficient and quiet! This was an upgrade from an old food processor I have used for 20 years. My goodness! What a change in performance and technology! I chose this unit because it was recommended by Cook's Kitchen/Country, etc. It comes with many accessories. So many, I have not yet had time to use them all. Suffice to say, I have many food processing options!
A great machine that will do any food processing job you need with ease.

Summary: This is a wonderful machine. I have used it already a bunch for fall canning. It quickly chops and processes tomatoes, peppers whatever you like. It was an invaluable time-saver for making salsa. Great for spaghetti sauce, too. The mini bowl is great for chopping peppers, onions, and garlic to just the right dimensions. I bought this processor because my son lent me his cuisinart. It was ok but he also had a kitchenaid and they said it was heavier duty.
Summary: Very unhappy with this much touted processor You can't make a decent pesto sauce, neither the small blade for mini bowl, or normal multipurpose blade chops basil or small leaves well..For pesto you need a different appliance or mortar and pestle, not this behemoth. Worse, it is impossible to clean the multipurpose blade inside the shaft.
Summary: I've always had Cuisinart food processors, but this KitchenAid was such a good buy, I decide to purchase it instead when I needed a larger capacity. It has turnhed out to be a very good choice. The motor is powerful, and all the attachments are useful and work well. I am very happy with it.
Summary: Well worth the money for this food processor--well built with many of options & features.
Bread blade works well, as do the other attachments. We like the juicer, and all the parts wash easily. The three sized bowls make clean up easier
It does take up some counter room, but well worth not having to pull it out every time you want to use it.
Summary: I wasn't sure whether to stick with Cuisinart (my Cuisinart worked like a champ and was my mother's who used it regularly, then passed it on to me. I also used it a few times a week, so That processor was well over 30 years old! that's some testament to Cuisinart's longevity and quality)
After doing a lot of research, I decided to give the K.A.
Summary: I bought this unit in September and it is so strong and fast that I laugh when I use it!! It slices potatoes and apples so fast my boys all line up to watch it work. It handles big chunks and odd shapes. It is fun to use.
The main reason I'm writing a review, however, is to let you know about the awesome customer support you'll receive if you buy KitchenAid.
