Top Customer Reviews
Some reviewers said that when using the mini bowl or prep bowl that they had leakage and dirtied up the other bowls. I don't know what they are doing wrong but I have not had that happen to me. I've used the mini (4 cup) bowl to crush nuts for cakes and pies and to make sorbet and the other two nested bowls remained spotless.
It is a piece of cake putting the discs, blades, and dicing kit to use and cleaning them. I read some reviews where folks said they found it confusing and difficult, particularly with the dicing kit. Again, I can't fathom why they have such a hard time. A child could figure it out. The dicing kit is only 3 pieces and it only goes together one way. Extremely simple and works great.
I've only had the unit a month now as of 2-10-1016 but it works great, looks sexy in my kitchen, and makes cooking more fun and enjoyable. With this and my stand mixer I can pretty much take on any cooking challenge.
I have had many food processors. I had my first Cuisinart for over 20 years, when the stem broke. I decided to jump ship and went another brand. I had a bad experience with that processor (now discontinued), and swapped it for the Cuisinart Elite 16 Cup, from Williams-Sonoma. I had the Cuisinart for about three years now but I had to try the new Kitchen Aid. It was love at first bite. Williams-Sonoma has a 90 day exchange policy if you are unhappy with the item for any reason and Kitchen Aid has a five year guarantee on this product. So I can have a “trial marriage” to see if I am happy with this product.
I was marginally satisfied with the Cuisinart but was frustrated with the way small particles of food kept getting stuck in the seal in the lid. I felt that there was too much waste in chunks of food that did not get processed properly. I was ready for a “trial marriage” to the Kitchen Aid.
Out of the box, this looks great in my kitchen. The KA pro line dicing food processor is much snazzier than any other food processor. Even though it is large, it is very attractive. The tool kit that comes with this machine is huge and will not fit in any of my lower cupboards. I will keep it on the counter next to this workhorse.
Over the past two months I put the machine through its paces. I have thin-sliced cabbage for Cole slaw, and shredded carrots for same. I thick sliced onion for Krepluch (a Jewish ravioli) filling then after I sautéed it, ground it up with meat in the food processor. It went thought all of these tasks like a trooper. It did a better and faster job of slicing the cabbage and onion than my old Cuisinart and there were fewer unsliced chunks.
The bowls and blades, like the Cuisinart, take up the whole top shelf of my dishwasher. The case has holder for any two extra discs (Parmesan, Julianne or French-fry) and an egg whipper. Cuisinart does not make these accessories for the Elite 16 but they do for the Elite 14.
I used it to grind wafers and added ingredients for a crust for an ice cream cake. I love the fact that I do not need to measure the finished product because there are clear makings on all three of the food processor bowls. It does a great job chopping food either fine or coarse.
On my Cuisinart, food was constantly getting stuck in the lid because of the rubber seal. Not so with the KA. This is a different design and is much easier to clean. No rubber seal on the lid and no stuck food. You start by processing dry ingredients and when you get to the wet ingredients, you simply wipe out the bowl between ingredients.
I used the dicing disk for a relish salad. I diced cucumber and radish. The dice was beautiful. I expected a small amount of waste. I use the plastic pusher that comes with the dicing disk and then I use a small skewer to push out the food scraps that we not removed. This is a very small dice but it is perfect for soup and salads and potatoes
I made noodle dough using the large bowl and the large chopping blade. I have made this dough by hand in the past, as well with a stand mixer and the Cuisinart food processor. This is by far the best and the fastest method for processing this dough. The dough was beautifully supple and easy to roll out.
I had to grind about six pounds of potatoes for potato pancakes during a Chanukah party. Every other processor I have left huge chunks of potato in the mixture. Not so, the Kitchen Aid. It did a great job in a very small amount of time. There were no chunks.
I have made several batches of cookie and brownie dough in this food processor. It works faster than my stand mixer and the results are just as good. And clean up is easier.
In about six weeks of use, I had one problem with this machine. I was doing a simple procedure (mixing cookie dough) when the machine would not run after I replaced the lid. I finished the cookies by hand and washed the bowls in the dishwasher. After the bowls were clean, the machine ran without a flaw and I have had no further problems. I contacted both Kitchen Aid and Williams-Sonoma about this problem. The customer advocates in both places felt that maybe I did not have the lid on tightly enough. However, both suggested that I exchange this machine for a brand new machine. I continued to use the “old machine” almost daily for three weeks since this happened without further problem. My replacement machine arrived last week and I exchanged one for the other but I am satisfied that the problem will not repeat itself.
I had a dinner party for over 20 people and this machine was great. I got lots of compliments on it and used it in front of my guests while I was preparing dinner.
This machine comes with one slicing blade where you dial in the thickness of the slices. It has one shredder blade you can flip over for fine or medium shred. It is the only food processor in this price range with a dicing kit. The kit has a plastic pusher that you push into the dicing kit to clean out anything that has not popped out. The Processor has three bowls. You nest either the small or medium bowl in the large bowl. With the Cuisinart you have to nest all three bowls before you can use the small bowl. There are two chopping blades; one is for the small bowl, an adapter and a plastic dough hook.
One of the negative comments about this machine is that the dice is too small. If I want a larger disk, I use the French fry disk (purchased separately) and cut each “fry” into two or three smaller pieces.
One night I took a few potatoes and put processed then every way I could. I sliced it from thin to thick. I used the French fry disk, the Julianne disk, both fine and medium shredder and the dicing kit. I put all these side by side. It was a great way to learn about the features of the machine.
The machine comes with a basic manual. If you need a recipe book, I recommend The New Food Processor Bible (see my review on this). This is the missing manual for any food processor. The machine is expensive but in my opinion worth every penny. It’s like having another pair of hands in the kitchen.
This machine is definitely recommended for the serious cook.
