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

Easy to use
from Ft McMurray, AB
I purchased this about six weeks ago and finally had the opportunity to try it out. It worked great at chopping veggies and nuts.
Must have in any size kitchen.
from Atlanta, GA
Ease of use is exceptional. A must have in any size kitchen and trendy color just make you feel cool and smart. No job too small or large!
Excellent for hummus
By Alex, hummus addict
from Burien, WA
Ok, so, I bought this because my nutribullet wasn't exactly ideal for making hummus, and once I knew how simple making hummus was, I wanted to make lots of it. This most definitely works worlds better on making hummus (tip - whip your lemon juice and tahini together first, add flavorings, then the chickpeas) and I wouldn't pass on it for the world. I admit to being a little uncertain about it at first, but it's certainly changed my mind on smaller food processors.Sure, it's a bit noisy, but what food processor isn't? The noise is worth excellent hummus.
Never stray from KitchenAid!
By Dina the Foodie
from South Plainfield, NJ
I tried other "fancier" food processors and while the safety features are important, they made taking on/off the lid so challenging that I actually literally could not get it open and had to take it back to the store! With the food inside. I saw this Kitchen Aid and it's perfect. Fits nicely in cupboard, does what it says without all the bells and whistles and I vow to ONLY buy KitchenAid in the first place. I have the KitchenAid standing mixer and am in love with it!
from Dallas, Oregon
I'm super happy with it, don't know why I didn't buy it sooner.
Small chopper for small jobs
By Babcia in the kitchen
from Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Bought for the small tasks in the kitchen, i just find that the moisture stays inside the lid after washing
Great little chopper
By Kitchen Maid
from St Louis MO
I purchased a month ago and this little chopper is the best I have ever used. Small enough to fit under the counter and large enough for tough chopping. Great Product!!
a monster in such a little body
By oglop the loser
from Burnaby, BC,Canada
It's a cool product who does its job well. I made a mango mousse and some filling for dumplings the first day I got it. For the Philippines mango I used, they are not very soft with lots of fibres in them, but the chopper successfully pureed them smoothly. For dumplings fillings I used the "pulse" technique as suggested in the video, but the result seemed too fine, I wanted coarser filling.
Great for chopping up food for babies!
Bought this a month ago and it puréed food very easy! Cleanup is very simple as well! I still strained the food afterwards but it was no biggie!
