Top Customer Reviews
KitchenAid - I was given the "Empire Red" unit for my review. The color is quite lovely, and will fit in with most décor, it pops enough to fit in with contemporary but is subtle enough to be a bright spot in more traditional homes. The overall appearance is not quite as striking as the Breville, and the plastic casing of the main unit is on the cheap side, but it is lovely nonetheless. The machine comes with two bowls and a cool lid that has a decent sized pusher for larger items (ex: medium sized potato), a smaller pusher inside the larger sized one for adding liquids while mixing and a small hole in the smallest pusher for drizzling. It does take a bit of getting used to attaching the bowl as it is a side fit rather than the more traditional front snap of the other two units featured here. This machine is quite a lot lighter than the other two units but that also means it feels like a less expensive piece of equipment.
Breville - This is a beautiful machine, being sleek silver and coal black. The lid is a slide lock system and has a very wide feeding chute and a large food pusher with a smaller round pusher, (the small pusher is calibrated and can be used for measuring); the unit can run with the small pusher out but stops if the larger pusher is removed. (And starts right back up if it is put in - quite the shock if you forgot you had the machine running when you took it out.)
Cuisinart - This is a very attractive unit but is a bit boxier than the Breville and not as expensive looking. The lid snaps on to the unit when two small buttons are pushed in on the large work bowl. There is a wide feeding chute with a smaller chute inset. And it comes with a retractable cord that can be extended a little or a lot.
KitchenAid - 4-Cup Work Bowl, Lid with Feed Tube, Lid without Feed Tube, Adjustable Slicing Disc, Reversible Shredding Disc, Multipurpose Blade, Multipurpose Blade for 4-Cup Work Bowl, Dough Blade, Dicing Kit, Clean Out Tool, Storage Case.
Breville - Three Blades (Micro-serrated S blade, Dough blade and Mini processing blade), 5 discs (Adjustable Slicing Disc, Shredding and Grating Disc, Julienne Disc, Emulsifying Disc and French Fry and Vegetable Stick Disc), One Mini Bowl, a disc spindle, small brush and spatula, instruction booklet (with a few recipes) and storage container. (Note: the blades have metal tips and can get quite hot after processing - so mind your hands when reaching into the bowls!) All bowls and attachments are BPA free.
Cuisinart - Three Blades (Small Chopping/Mixing Blade, Large Chopping/Mixing Blade and Dough Blade.) Two discs (Adjustable Slicing Disc and Reversible Shredding Disc.), two smaller bowls with pour spouts, Stem Adapter, Spatula, Cleaning Tool and instructional DVD with recipes and spiral bound instruction manual with recipes. Accessory Storage Case.
The Breville obviously has a greater number of accessories and the storage container is much higher quality than either the Cuisinart or the KitchenAid. Also, the instructional booklet from Cuisinart is by far the best and the additional DVD is a godsend for those who are either visual or auditory learners. It is very helpful to be able to actually see someone use the food processor. Also, certain of the Breville accessories must be washed by hand which is not the case with either the Cuisinart or the KitchenAid units.
KitchenAid - One year "hassle free" warranty.
Breville - One year limited warranty on unit. Twenty-Five year induction motor warranty. I have had opportunity to speak with the Breville customer service representatives on some issues and they are wonderful, very responsive and happy to help. Others have related similar experiences to me. They stand behind their product.
Cuisinart - Three year limited warranty on unit. Twenty-year motor warranty. I have also had the opportunity to speak with representatives from Cuisinart and sad to say, have not had a great experience. They replaced a lid I had mold issues with and were very clear that this was a one time thing and I was a bit of a bother. Not great.
Okay, the KitchenAid warranty is a huge issue for me, a one year warranty on this type of product is insufficient and indicates an unwillingness to stand behind your product and a lack of faith in said product - full star off for that.
KitchenAid - There are four large buttons on the face of the machine: "Off", "Low", "High", "Pulse". There is also a slide button that adjusts the width of the slicing disc.
Breville - The unit has three button controls; Power Off, Start/Pause and Pulse. It also has an LCD display with a count up or count down timer.
Cuisinart -. The unit has four buttons: On, Off, Dough and Pulse.
I love the LCD display and counter feature on the Breville. As for the Cuisinart, the dough cycle is almost a must have for me since one of the primary reasons I wanted a good-sized food processor was because I am a baker. (It is not my profession but is one of my passions.) The KitchenAid controls are okay and the slicing blade adjustment is nice.
KitchenAid - No idea . . .the manual fails to mention the specifications of the motor and the KitchenAid website does not list it either. I can tell you that in using the machine it is clear that it is not nearly as powerful as either of the other two.
Breville - 1200-watt induction motor
Cuisinart - 1000-watt peak power induction motor
Slicing and Shredding:
KitchenAid - Shredding - The machine does a nice job, it shreds cheese uniformly but you can feel the machine working hard to do so and it bucks a bit in the process. Slicing yields the same result.
Breville - Shredding - the machine shines here. Shredded cheeses are uniformly shredded with minimal powdering and there is quite a difference between fine and course shreds when the blade is turned. Slicing - simply excellent. I made a dessert that called for very finely sliced apples and I could not have asked for a more beautiful result.
Cuisinart - Shredding - This unit isn't quite as good at shredding as the Breville. There is very little difference between the fine and medium shred on cheese and quite a bit of the cheese powders. (Not an issue for cooking but one if it is being plated.) Slicing - Very good results here too. Not quite as uniformly sliced as the Breville but close enough.
KitchenAid - It works well, on par with the Cuisinart I would say.
Breville - The top performer. You just have to be careful to keep the processing time down or you end up with grated not chopped!
Cuisinart - Does a very good job but isn't quite the powerhouse the Breville unit has proven to be.
KitchenAid - The difference in presumed motor size is readily apparent here, it takes a good bit longer for dough to come together and you need to watch temps to make sure you have not over processed your dough. (If above 80 degrees when processed, put it in the fridge to cool down.) I have made some lovely breads with this machine but you have to be aware of the issue.
Breville - This machine is a beast and I had to work with it for awhile so as not to get touch, over processed doughs. I figured it out and now love it.
Cuisinart - Wow, fantastic results! Makes bread so light you can't tell the difference between that kneaded in the food processor and kneaded by hand!
KitchenAid - All accessories, including BPA-Free bowls, are dishwasher safe, top rack only. After spending this much on a machine, I would personally just hand wash the items though.
Breville - the machine must be hand washed. Cleanup is a breeze and there are no issues with food being trapped in the lid seal.
Cuisinart - I am very unhappy with the lid and seal is designed on this machine. I have to pick food out of the seal and between the seal and the lid most every time I use the machine. I also am having an issue with mold growing on the top of the seal where it is encased in plastic and unreachable for manual cleaning. I have been soaking the lid in a vinegar solution to deal with this but it is simply unacceptable to have these sorts of issues with a machine that is so expensive. The food processor is top rack dishwasher safe but I would give some thought to putting the blades and slicing/shredding discs in your dishwasher.
KitchenAid - This is a sharp looking machine but when considering the performance, price point and warranty issues, I just cannot recommend it. The Breville unit continues to outperform the field.
Breville - this is a very fine, beautiful machine. It is head and shoulders above either of the other options here. For purposes of making dough, I recommend picking up the The Best Bread Ever: Great Homemade Bread Using your Food Processor if you are having any issues.
Cuisinart - Until I had the cleaning issues with the lid on this machine I thought that for the price this unit was a tough one to beat. Further contact with customer service made me even less of a fan. Others have reported similar and other issues, so I no longer recommend this machine.
There are three main units (or four, depending on we count, and I'll elaborate on that) that you must store (and/or keep on a counter top):
The food processor itself, WITH the 14-cup work bowl (the bowl with the handle) WITH the 4-cup bowl inside it, AND the lid that has the feed tube on it. This whole thing is huge, and by my own measurements has a footprint of 10" x 12" (with the 12" measurement I'm allowing extra room for the power cord that comes out the back). With the 14-cup bowl AND the feed tube lid on top of the unit, the height is just about 17 1/4" high. That obviously means that if you wanted to keep it under a cabinet, the bottom of the cabinet would need to be about at least 17 1/2" above the counter top.
If you were to store the food processor without the bowl on it, the height is only about 10".
What about storing it with the 14-cup bowl on it WITHOUT the feed tube lid? If you did that, the interior of the bowl would be unprotected and dust would get in there. What about storing it with the 14-cup bowl on it with the lid that does not have a feed tube? I'm not going to bother measuring for that, and here's why: The lid that does NOT have a feed tube does double-duty as the cover of what's called the dicing kit. I don't think anyone would want to store the dicing kit without a lid anymore than anyone would want to store the 14-cup bowl without a lid.
Okay, let's say that your space limits mean that you can't store the monster with the feed tube lid on top of it. The 14-cup bowl with the feed tube lid on it measures about 10 1/2" high with a footprint of 9" x 11 1/2" (the extra on the 11 1/2" side is because of the handle). You could store that in a cabinet if space allows.
Next, since I mentioned the dicing kit, here are its measurements: The footprint is about 9" x 10" (there's a notch on the lid, which is why it's longer on one side). The height is about 4 1/2". So it's similar in size to many a 3 1/2 quart saucepan.
And then there's the unit that KitchenAid calls the storage case, which holds the 2 multipurpose blades, the dough blade, and some other stuff. It has a footprint of about 12" x 13" and it's about 9" high.
The food processor, the 14-cup bowl, the dicing kit, and the storage case can fit in a space that's about 21" x 21", and I took that measurement not because I think anyone's going to try to store everything like that, but just to help you visualize just how much of a space hog this might be for you.
The food processor is ergonomically designed, with easy-to-press, waterproof buttons. You can press the buttons with wet fingers, oily fingers, fingers with food on them, and nothing is going to get inside the button area, and you can just wipe the buttons clean with a sponge or damp cloth.
There are recessed handles on either side of the food processor that make it easy to lift. I weighed it (just the food processor without the bowl) and it's just over 7 1/2 lbs., which should be easy for most people to lift.
The storage case and the dicing kit case are made of hard, heavy-duty plastic and are very well designed for holding all the parts. Most of the parts go in the storage case, and there are pictures inside that show where each part goes. There's a right way and a wrong way to insert each part into the storage case (e.g., each multipurpose blade will fit if you have it in one direction and won't fit if it's in the opposite direction), so inserting parts is a bit like doing a puzzle, albeit a very easy one. A brush is included for reaching areas that may otherwise be hard to reach when cleaning the lid(s), etc. I haven't used the included brush yet, because I've just been using a toothbrush that I keep handy by the kitchen sink.
The plug on the power cord has a notch on it that clips onto the power cord to facilitate holding the cord around the base of the food processor when the cord is unplugged from an outlet. This is a nice touch, given that so many kitchen appliances do not provide an easy way to deal with their power cords when they're not plugged in.
I've used this food processor to prepare cookie dough and it was a breeze and so much easier than prepping cookie dough by hand. Slicing vegetables goes amazingly fast and the cuts are perfect; slicing potatoes for scalloped potatoes (or homemade potato chips) is a breeze (I sliced a half dozen potatoes with it today and it took seconds). There's a lever on the front of the unit that you can use to adjust slicing thickness. This is an awesome kitchen tool, as long as you have the space for it.
(I added a couple of photos, and included a pencil in one and a stick of butter, an egg, and a 12 oz. can of soda in the other to provide a sense of scale. Also, I want to mention a detail from the instruction manual just in case someone who purchases a KitchenAid food processor doesn't happen to read it, and that is, "To prevent damage to the locking system, always store the work bowl and work bowl cover in the unlocked position when not in use." This appears on page 20 under Care and Cleaning in the manual for the model under review, and I imagine it also applies to other KitchenAid food processor models.)
Other observations: the small bowl and its chopping blade did a lovely job of chopping a small quantity of shallots. But here there is also a downside. It's great that the machine comes with a smaller bowl -- but it can only be used inside the larger bowl and uses the same lid. So if you want to process something in the larger bowl and then the smaller, you are going to have to empty out and probably clean the large bowl and lid before you can do what you want in the small bowl.
This machine does a lot of things very well, but I am not sure I'm going to keep it.
