1) One of my main criteria when I was shopping for it was that my new food processor should have a large capacity. This one was advertised as having a large capacity. But the stem in the middle of the bowl is very short, so you can't actually put much food into it, especially if the food is liquidy.
2) They advertise having one of the widest mouthed feed tubes. But what they don't tell you is that the "maximum fill line" on the feed tube is very low. So you really can't pack all *that* much food into the feed tube.
3) The ad said it had an attachment called "juicer." I thought that this meant that I could use it to, say, juice carrots, like the way my local food co-op has a juice bar where you can buy things like carrot-beet-celery juice. But no, actually the "juicer" is an attachment where you push down on an orange over a dome and the juice comes down the sides, through holes, and into the body of the food processor. It's basically like an ordinary "Mexican hat shaped" manual juicer except that you use the food processor to turn the middle (I guess that's how it goes -- I've never used this attachment) and then the bowl collects the juice. When I made my final decision between the last two food processors that I was looking at, I chose this one because it said "juicer." So this was a disappointment and made me feel that I'd been snared by phony ad hype. Interesting... I see they are now saying "citrus press" instead of "juicer" for this attachment. I think that is much more honest.
4) It's not good with small quantities. My old food processor could chop a clove of garlic.Read more ›
So, I decided to order the KitchenAid 760 B and it is almost silent, chops, shreds, purify's, and pulverizes anything you put in it. The extra wide mouth on the food shoot is excellent for potatoes, zucchini, and large vegetables. So far, nothing I used in it slowed the motor down.
The use is simple and easy to put together and it cleans up beautifully with everything encased, leaving nothing open for food to get stuck. One spot may be the spindle which turns the blades, but it wipes out very easily.
The attachments which come with it along with the blades provided are enough to do anything you need. I've made bread dough, and being a vegetarian, used it to chop every manner of vegetable, effortlessly. Worth every dime, dollar, hundred dollar, two hundred dollars!
I decided to buy the Kitchenaid Food Processor 750. However, Amazon.com sent me the 760 model. Maybe they were out of the 750...or maybe I lucked out through a computer glitch. Either way, I'm thrilled with my 760. I highly recommend you spend the extra 20-30$ for the 760 which has a few more attachments, including the juicer.
I have never used a food processor before, always relying on my handy Kitchenaid mixer. Today I used my processor for the first time to make a quick loaf of Banana Macadamia Nut Bread (a recipe included with the processor.) It was so easy to use, the directions were very user-friendly. As a side note, the bread was pretty tasty as well.
The Processor feels a little heavier than I expected, but I guess since it has a bigger motor that is to be expected. It felt very sturdy as it was mixing up my bread, and the motor hummed along fairly quietly. I am amazed at how quickly and expertly it sliced up the bananas! I can't wait to try it out with other recipes.
My parents have a Kitchenaid mixer that I remember using when I was growing up, so it is a good 20+ years old. It still runs like it is brand new. If this is indicative of Kitchenaid products, I expect my food processor will be in the family for many years to come!
As a side note: A friend of mine lives on Kodiak, a large Island in Alaska.Read more ›
My latkes turned out great with a minimum of effort on my part--I was very, very happy! Since them I have used my kitchen aid (we have named her Diana, after Wonder Woman) many times and am always very happy with the results.
I knocked a star off the rating for two reasons: one, the lousy accessories packaging. The plastic box can only be stored flat because there is no way to lock the cover on. In my small apartment, I must store it sideways and it's closed with a very low-tech rubber band. Two, the smaller workbowls are only useable with the work blades provided. It would have been nice to be able to use the smaller bowls with a grater or slicer blade as well.
