My little mini mincer finally died after many years of service and I decided I'd replace it with a small food processor that I could store in my TINY kitchen and that I could also make pie dough and hopefully pasta dough with. Well, there ARE no small food processors so I ended up looking at choppers and settled on this one partly because of the KA name but also because I think somewhere I saw a mention of making dough in it. Anyway, I bought it sometime this year and have used it for various chopping jobs and been VERY happy with it - so much more consistent as far as size than a blender or my little mini mincer. But I never had worked up the ambition to try pie crust. And now, of all times I chose Thanksgiving day to try it. Thank heavens, it worked and worked beautifully. I only made one crust at a time since that's a cup of flour and 1/3c. shortening. And about 10 quick pulses and it was pretty much perfect. I DID dump it into a bowl and do the 2-knives method for a minute or so just cause I couldn't quite believe it was done. But it was and I'm a happy camper. I think this will inspire me to try a small batch of pasta dough.P.S. - I've noticed a couple of negative comments about taking the lid off and taking the bowl off the base and I, too, thought there was something wrong with mine when I tried, following the instructions, to dismantle it the first time. But since then, either because of experience or use, it has become very easy to do, so if you have trouble stick with it. The end result (a great little chopper) is worth it.

I Ordered this chopper a week ago and was very excited about getting it as it is my first food processor. I chose this small 3.5 cup as I live alone and only cook for 1 or 2 and the many color options. Looks very nice and is name brand but it doesnt seem like much real world testing went into this product. Only pro so far is appearance. First thing I noticed is that the decieving "additive" port is just a tiny hole for adding liquid that you pour on the outside of the lid and drizzles to the inside dust and all. Second thing I found that is the cord length is barely 23 inches long, try moving that around a counter top. There is a cord keeper on the bottom but not enough room for the entire cord because the first 7 inches still hangs out. Next I realized the lid, base, and blade are very difficult to detach. The 2 speed push buttons are part of the cover that flow through the chopping bowl and activate the motor as a safety feature. The lid has a funky ramping action that doesnt really help anything as you can lock and remove the lid before it even comes to this ramping deal. I played around with the lid a bit and if it isnt on all the way the chop button can still activate the puree mode switch(I scratched my head on that one) Up next the blade is difficult to remove when the bowl is still installed wich I get but they extended it to hit the inside of the cover to restrict up and down movement so it wont disengage the motor shaft. Now after the external review we get to throw some ingredients in....HUGE dissapointment! First few pulses everything is slung and stuck to the wall of the bowl...now what? Get out the spatula and scrape it off right? The blade doesnt move because its attached to the motor so scrape around it. Pulse scrape pulse scrape pulse scrape...liquid additive is sitting in the bottom not blending with the solids...pulse scrape pulse scrape ok now we are just playing the game take the lid off every time. By now the lid is broken in enough to twist open on its own from vibration and bouncing up and down on the counter tetherd to the wall by its short cord..fun game. Now we shall attempt to take apart and wash the dirty parts. Great there are 4 springs, a screw and internal moving parts on the bowl and lid not to mention the blade could slice open a wet hand in the blink of an eye. Good luck rinsing out all that soapy water, and forget about hand drying all that water you can still see inside there #1yearwarrany...just my 2 cents. Guess you get what you pay for no matter the brand

Was unable to remove the bowl. After reading other reviewers with the same issue I called KitchenAid & they sent me a new one. Unfortunately the new one does the same thing just haven't taken the time to call them.All my kitchen appliances and toaster oven is Kitchen Aid so I do like their products but this one is a dud
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like several features of this little appliance, including the 3.5 c capacity, the fun color, and, how well it works!

This was a gift (albeit a requested gift) so I did not actually choose KitchenAid. I am very pleased with its' operation. Like the cord stowage. It is very fast and chops very evenly.The one negative is that it is difficult to pick up. I store it on a lower shelf and every time I try to pick it up, I come close to dropping it. There seems to be no secure way to lift it.
easy to use
This was a wonderful Christmas gift!!I am enjoying it!

My Best Little Helper!
I bought this at Christmas and have been using ever since. While I have a larger Cruisnart, this little guys is so handy for chopping cilantro, scallions and other items that I would not have dragged the larger food processor out to use. Very convenient and easy to clean-up too.
