Received my KitchenAid ProLine Food Processor yesterday. My review is not on how it works, but what is not included, after paying $600!! After taking everything out of the box, I opened up the container with all the extra attachments. I purchased this unit, because the video on the Williams Sonoma showing everything it included. A julienne slicer, an ice shredder, a french fry slicer and and egg whipper. Guess what? None of them were in the box. I went back on the WS website and nowhere can you even buy these extra attachments. Why show them in a video if you can't purchase them? I felt after spending $600 on a food processor, these attachments were at least included. I have contacted Williams Sonoma and I am now awaiting an answer. Hope they come up with a solution. If I have to pay extra for the attachments that were shown in a video and it did not say they were extra, I will be returning this machine, which I am not happy about. Just don't think its a fair situation here.

Happy at first, until both blades broke

I loved this food processor. It was my first KitchenAid and I tend to, when I buy things, do a lot of research.

I was impressed by it's BPA free plastics.

Over the last couple of years, my partner and I used it maybe once or twice a month at the most. So nothing serious. Then the first smaller blade broke. Then the next bigger blade. They both broke the same way. After examining it closely, it's clear to see that the tiny bit of metal hook which extends into the plastic is very thin and not adequate for a food processor this powerful. I thought "no big deal" and I made contact with local KitchenAid representation (I'm in Estonia now) and asked for parts. They wanted €44 euro and €32 for each part, about $90usd including shipping.

I don't mind paying for quality, but as a first time customer, I'm not going to be throwing further money at this thing. You guys should acknowledge that these blades are inadequate, have some sort of replacement program instead of trying to make further profits by over-charging for what are clearly cheap parts. There are things I could understand failing in a food processor over the years, the blades breaking while chopping up some carrots are not one of those things.

Love with a touch of mold

By 

from Sweden, Gothenburg

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Pearl White Food Processor:

I love this machine, I used it daily, but every time I used it, small pieces of food got stuck inside the lid and the handle of the large bowl. I tried to get the food out in all ways I could think of, and gave up after the food residues started to grow white tendrils. It got really discusting after a couple of weeks.

I've gotten the lid replaced by my local supplier for free last week. I decided to avoid processing any liquids in it to avoid getting food up into the lid. But after one single use I have the same problem all over again. This makes me very sad since I looove using this machine.

How do I clean the lid and the handle of the large bowl? :(

Very Large / Good for Some things

By 

from Jersey Shore, NJ

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Pearl White Food Processor:

My husband (who loves to cook) bought this about 3 years ago. It has a phenomenal amount of power. Does everything in terms of chopping and blending, but it doesn't get 5 stars from me because it is so big I've no place to store it; and if you store it it is so big to take back out from the cabinet you could Julianne your carrots faster by hand. I keep it in the appliance garage, and i have to disassemble it to get it in there.

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Pearl White Food Processor:

I am not a heavy user of my food processor (one a month tops) and it stopped working after 9 months. I am still waiting for KitchenAid to send me my replacement machine under their supposedly wonderful warranty.

poor accessories

By 

from florida

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Pearl White Food Processor:

I bought this almost two 1/2 years ago. I have replaced the small blade twice due to breaking. They both broke while making dressing. Now the top feeder has broker where the handle attaches. I paid over 700 for this thinking it was commercial grade. The accessories, discs, blades are poorly made! All the plastic parts are poor! however, the motor, and sturdiness of it is excellent. But what good is it if it keeps breaking blades.

Good product

By 

from Stockholm, Sweden

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Pearl White Food Processor:

I got this product as an wedding anniversary gift over a year ago. Things that I really love are that it speeds up my cooking time:). For slicing and chopping, it is really good. On the other hand, for dicing and cleaning it is simply not. I have never been able to dice with it. All the veggies always get stuck and never go through. I have tried a couple of ties and fail to succeed. So I endup trying to clear the little dicing disc with the cleaner it comes with and it still does not remove anything, and I loose all the food trying on this attachment. Really bad. And the cleaning. Cleaning the slicing and chopping blades is rather easy. The difficult parts to clean are the dicing attachment and the lid. I dont use this food processor even on a weekly basis. Maybe once every two months or less, and the lid has becomed moldy between the inside parts. I still have not figured out how to clean that away. My husband does not even want a use it because of uncleanable mold or food particulates in the lead.

Big disappointment

By 

from Piestany, Slovakia

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Pearl White Food Processor:

We bought this food processor 3 weeks ago. During last three weeks, we used the machine quite occasionally for chopping veg for evening salads and soups. Today morning, I wanted to shred a celeriac, but after job was done I realized that the cutting blade got stuck on the power shaft and cannot be removed from it. I am afraid that the shaft, which is not made of any durable material but of very cheap plastic, is eventually being broken off and must be replaced. In addition, I have to note that all chopping blades and adapters seem quite vulnerable and fragile and cannot be compared to the blades I saw on some processors of other high-end producers. All in all, the product is a great disappointment to me, not up to the standards I would have expected from a manufacturer like the Kitchen Aid and, as against my experiences, I would dis-advise anyone from buying this processor. Now I do only hope that the company's local distributor is not gonna be obstructive and will either provide me with a full refund or replace the product as soon as possible.

So disappointed

By 

from France

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Pearl White Food Processor:

I bought this robot three months ago, hoping and believing that I'm buying the best brand for food processors. I'm soooo disappointed and mad at myself for spending this amount of money on an appliance that is not reliable at all!!! after the first two weeks, the dicing disk stopped working and wans't turning anymore! after a month, the machine starts to get hot and stopped working! I sent it to the kitchenaid center in France and they fixed the problem in the engine (+I've never received the new dicing disk). And tonight, the cutting disk stopped working!!! I had never used the garantee of any of my appliances this much in a short amount of time....!!!

Great for many things, but not kneading bread dough

By 

from Kerrville, TX

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Pearl White Food Processor:

I have had mine for 3 years. I use it weekly to slice or shred veggies, mix chopped meat salads, etc... I find that the multiple bowls work well for various quantities I need, and are convenient to hold components of the recipe until all is ready. I have not had any trouble with flying pieces of processed food.

I have not had good luck using the dicing assembly. Soft foods like tomatoes turn to mush, and fibrous veggies like onions and celery tend to peel off layers that get stuck in the black plastic cover, so I don't use the dicing assembly often. I was however, most disappointed in my 2 attempts to knead bread dough. I followed the few instructions in the manual, but both times the dough quickly worked it's way inside the core of the dough blade, and down the motor shaft into the motor housing. I spent hours cleaning it with a toothbrush and multiple toothpicks, trying to get the dough out. Boy, was I dumb to try it a second time!!!

Just recently, the thickness selection knob broke off. I called KA, and because of the 5 yr warranty, they sent me a new one (woohoo!). Given the "innovative" features haven't worked that well for me, I probably would have been just as well off with a simpler processor, but since it's still under warranty, I'll take the new one, thank you very much! I definitely will NOT knead bread dough in this one!
