KitchenAid KFPW760WH 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processor Review

Review of KitchenAid KFPW760WH 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processor

Read why I am purchasing the KitchenAid KFPW760WH 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processor

Over the years I have owned a number of food processors. Some of these marvelous machines have promised to do everything but eat the food for me. I am currently researching the KitchenAid 12-cup Food Processor as my previous food processors have for various reasons disappeared. One I donated to a family member as she wanted to make bread that I did not want to do and the machine had a bread attachment. The last food processor that I owned was a Braun. Unfortunately a part broke and as they no longer are making them for the North American market so I could not get a replacement part.

I want this to be the last food processor that I buy. I think that coming upon the KitchenAid 12-cup Food Processor was a very lucky discovery.

How KitchenAid Food Processors Work

Strong Motor for Speed

This KitchenAid 12-cup Food Processor has a 700 watt motor that makes slicing, dicing, and mixing a breeze. Many of the other food processors have 500-600 watt motor however since I am looking for an all in one product the stronger motor appeals to me. In spite of this large motor it runs very quietly as it has durable sealed housing.

Flexible Bowl Sizes

This KitchenAid food processor comes with a 12-cup work bowl, a 10-cup chef’s bowl, and 4-cup mini bowl with mini blade. I think this is a great idea to have so much flexibility. Not every job in the kitchen needs the same sized bowls but it is a nuisance to have to change equipment to get the right sized bowl. The 10-cup chef’s bowl fits inside the 12-cup bowl so you don’t have clean the work bowl when you change sizes. For those smaller jobs the 4- cup mini bowl fits inside the large work bowl. An example of how handy this can be, is if you are making something that requires the nuts to be chopped and put on the top you can do this in the small bowl, remove it, then use the bigger bowl to do the other chopping or pureeing.
Note: The three bowls are an option if you buy it in white or black. You can also have this option with the KitchenAid KFPM773CA Architect Series 12-Cup Wide-Mouth Food Processor, Candy Apple Red

Dicing, Slicing, Grating and Shredding

The KitchenAid KFPW760WH comes with three precision stainless-steel discs: a fine 2-mm slicing disc, a medium 4-mm slicing disc, and a medium 4-mm shredding disc. It grates cheese like a whiz. The large mouthed feeding tube allows you to put large vegetables like tomatoes or potatoes in without little cutting of them. They are sliced or diced in seconds.

The slicing discs will slice most foods including delicate items like strawberries. The 2-mm disc produces 1/16 inch slices while the 4-mm slicing disc produces 1/8 inch slices.

Multipurpose Features

This KitchenAid 12-cup Food Processor comes with a stainless-steel blade, dough blade, citrus press, and egg whip. The citrus press is similar to a manual juicer in that you put the fruit on top and it removes the juice from the orange, grapefruit, lime, or lemon. With the heavy 700-watt motor the dough blade will quickly help you make bread. The stainless-steel blade combines with the heavy motor to quickly chop, dice and puree making prep time a joy. Whether you are making soup or pesto this food processor cuts the time it takes down to seconds.

The egg whip is great for eggs, whipping cream, mousses, soufflés, and other dessert items.

Another important feature of the KitchenAid 12-cup Food Processor is the pulse control. This helps to give the consistency that you want without suddenly finding that you have over processed.

Clean Up

The bowls, blades, and discs are dishwasher safe unlike several other food processors that I have owned. The control pad and the base are very easy to wipe clean.

Size Matters

This KitchenAid 12-cup Food Processor is 10-1/2 by 8-1/4 by 16-1/8 inches. This means it is a large heavy small kitchen appliance. Because of its size and weight it doesn’t slide across the counter when using it. I have the room to have it on my counter for ease of use but I can also store it in a cupboard. Some of the other food processors that I have owned have been as big as this one without either the capacity or the features of this food processor.

For my purposes I want a large capacity machine that will do all the jobs. I like the idea that I have the capacity of the 12 cup bowl but can also switch to either a 10 cup chef’s bowl or the 4 cup mini bowl for different size jobs. This flexibility means I don’t have to have several machines.

Reviews of the KitchenAid KFPW760WH 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processor

Amazon is giving the KitchenAid 12-cup Food Processor a 4.25 rating.
Some of the comments are:

I bought this model because it was the food processor pick in a Cook’s review on the Today show. The thing they didn’t mention about it is how quiet it is!

Americas test kitchen reviewed several food processors. This kitchenaid and a Cuisinart model came out on top w/ the KitchenAid edging it out because it comes w/ an additional smaller bowl & blade for the little jobs. So glad i listened to their review,

the kitchenaid is a fantastic unit from top to bottom. Solid construction throughout w/ alot of power. Definately would buy again.

Before this I’d had the Kitchen Aid 11 cup one, which had always done a pretty good job on blending, pureeing, shredding, etc. This one seems to do an even better job, and changes have been made so that it’s easier to clean and store than the old one.
