I was so excited to receive this food processor and begin using it. I was thrilled with how fast I could prepare vegetables, but I found the slicing disc to make extremely thin slices--only 2mm is not very thick! I decided to look into buying some additional discs which could cut thicker slices. However, I soon learned by going to kitchenaid's website, and by calling them directly, that there are NO additional discs or blades available for the 7-cup version besides those that come with it. So, if you think you might ever want to purchase some other blades or attachments (julienne cutter, thick slice disc, etc.) you'd better go with a bigger model. I ended up returning mine for a 9 cup version. But I can't help but feel grumpy about it, because Cuisinart offers additional discs for their 7-cup models. Why doesn't Kitchenaid?

It was a fantastic food processor, but the options were just too limited! I asked the kitchenaid rep on the phone why that is, and she said they consider 7 cup models to not be full sized. It doesn't make sense to me, though--just because you're cooking for a small number of people, why would you automatically only want small slicing sizes?

If you don't think you will ever want to purchase more accessories for your fp, by all means buy this model. But just be forewarned that you will only be able to slice stuff reeeeeally thin.

This workhorse is perfect for our family. The large 7 cup bowl is good for so many uses, while the 3 cup mini bowl helps save some clean up time. It does leak a little on the side if you are dealing with liquids, but solid items stay in the big bowl.

Since the buttons are flush on the unit, it makes cleaning it a snap. A quick wipe and you are done.

As with any white plastic part, it will stain depending on what it comes in contact with. I've pureed red chilies in there so my blade handle has taken on a bit of a red hue. A little bleach and quick cleaning usually removes the color.

The blades that it comes with have been a life saver for shredding - I've shredding carrots for a carrot cake in no time flat without hurting my arms using the old box grater. I used to avoid making carrot cake for that reason, but now make it more often.

My mother used my processor and loved it - she requested it for Christmas! It just makes cooking easier.

Have had the Kitchen Aid KFP720OB 7-cup with 3-cup mini for ~2 mos., and I'm still learning, as it's my first food processor. The original small blade scored the sides of the mini bowl, but I called KA customer service, and both the blade and bowl were replaced immediately at no cost. KA even sent a postage label for returning the defective parts. I use both blades and both bowls almost daily but haven't used the slicing/shredding blade. The machine is quiet, powerful, doesn't move about on the counter, and everything is easy to clean (I have no dishwasher). The closest thing I have to a complaint is that the large bowl is a little difficult to remove. Perhaps I just haven't figured it out yet. All in all, I'm very happy with this processor. I think it does what it's supposed to do, and customer service was excellent.

This processor is quick, smooth, and NOT loud (my husband can sleep through the noise when I use it in the morning, unlike our previous Cuisinart.) And it does everything I need it to do. I'm very satisfied with the product, and definitely recommend.

The closest I ever came to owning a food processor was a Salad Shooter (remember those?), which drove me nuts with the volume of parts to keep track of. As much as I'm not fond of hand-chopping food, I figured a knife was much easier to manage (and clean) than a food processor would be. I recently got a hankering, though, and began my research. Since there are just two of us, I knew I didn't need lots of bells and whistles, nor did I need or want a bunch of attachments, i.e. for breadmaking, etc. I wanted basic but quality, and this KitchenAid fits my requirements perfectly. It's solid, it's not ear-crushing noisy, and it does exactly what I need it to do quickly and without fuss. Chop stuff with a knife? What was I thinking? For the price, this is a great machine, and I would highly recommend it.

This is a great machine. I got it to make humus, cole slaw and banana whip deserts which it does flawlessly. Watch those blades though, sharp!

KitchenAid KFP720ER 7-Cup Food Processor with 3-Cup Mini Bowl, Empire Red Food processor can be handy...but in fact they often sit unused because most are hard to clean or changing attachments is time consuming...they are supposed to speed things up, not make it slower then doing it by hand! Well the KitchenAid is super quick to change attachments on and very easy to clean. Finally a food processor that makes life easier!! I got the 7 cup with mini bowl because there are only two of us at home now, but all the sizes work the same -- just choose the one thats right for you -- you will love it!

I've never had a food processor, so I don't have an opinion based on years of use. I bought this recently and love it. It's easy to clean--the parts can be popped easily in the dishwasher and the rest is easily wiped down. I love that the buttons are easy to use, and it really isn't that hard to set up once you get the hang of it. I leave it on my counter but it's not too hefty to put it away if you want. It shreds things like spinach like a breeze and chops heavier items like beans and sun dried tomatoes just as easily. It does get full rather quickly, but I didn't want a larger capacity because it's only the two of us. So if I have a lot I can just do it in batches and it works fine. I have not used the smaller work bowl yet but I like having it; if I were to make a very small sample of something it would come in handy. Overall, I am glad I purchased it and would recommend it.

I had a similar model and it lasted for four years. I tend to kill food processors and this has been the most sturdy one I have found yet. It doesn't wobble in use. Makes nice hummus, chopped liver, and grates cheese faster than any thing else. Also grates potatoes and other hard vegetables quickly. Nuts, no problem. Haven't used the smaller mini bowl yet.

This is an excellent appliance, easy to use and quiet plus it does a good job. I have other KitchenAid products, stand mixer, coffee pot, mini food chopper plus a dishwasher and refrigerator! Needless to say I highly recommend these products.
