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.

Thought this was going to be an amazing food processor with all the bells and whistles; plus lots of extras. We found it had some serious flaws, however. We actually found this one advertised in a specialty catalog around Christmas. This processor had amazing accessories; including dicing features that seemed to have the final "WOW" factor that helped me decide on purchasing this product. So many cool features....But here's the "dicey part". Kitchen aid needs to work out the bugs big time. This product would be so worth it if they did. After reading other reviews, we found our problems & complaints were being experienced by others as well. Some of our issues with this product are: The dicing attachment seriously catches and traps nearly 1/4 of the veggies being chopped and to remove them is an enormously hard task! The leverage to open the dicing attachment once it is "jammed", which happens often, is to the point that my husband's strength is needed to open it most of the time. This was a huge issue as he was working out of state the first few times I operated it and I try not use it unless he is home. Also an unfortunate surprise.... you pay lots for this product and guess what? There are two attachments that don't come with it and you cannot purchase them either. Only available on select models... This is the only model available. The julienne attachment and the lemon squeezer (pardon my error in terminology on that one) are not included. Would love to say this was worth the investment. If these issues were remedied it would have been. Thanks for the opportunity to comment on this product because if these issues were remedied; it would be a home run indeed.

Great for many things, but not kneading bread dough

By 

from Kerrville, TX

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Red 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!

Happy at first, until both blades broke

By 

from Estonia

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Red Food Processor:

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.

Could be much better

By 

from Round Mountain, CA

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Red Food Processor:

I use this item several times a week to dice pounds of vegetables. It is such an improvement from doing it all by hand. But there are a few things that really bother me that I believe could be improved on. 1) The first is every time I place vegetables in the chute, I have to cover the chute with my hand otherwise I get many pieces of vegetables come flying out the chute and it dirties my cabinets and even ceiling. I believe the chute can be designed better to help this problem. I would try making the chute an angled slide. Like a water slide. So that when the vegetables hit the blades, it is not right under the opening of the chute and have bits and pieces pop out as they are diced. I know the company could provide a cover for the chute that can be used after the vegetables are placed in the chute but that would be so inconvenient to place and then remove each time I placed vegetables in the chute. I have been placing my hand over the chute and it works ok but still bits and pieces get through and pop out and make a mess. 2) Another annoyance is the since the chute is off to the edge of the bowl, the vegetables don't spread out evenly in the bowl. After a while many of the vegetables are mostly piles up under the chute and a lot of the bowl goes unused. If I keep trying to dice vegetables even though there is space left in the bowl, the machine will choke. I think that placing the chute in the middle of the bowl would make the vegetables spread out through the entire bowl and I could use all the space in the bowl. 3) Occasionally a piece of vegetables gets stuck between the dicing blade and the circular blade and the machine comes to a stop. This is very annoying since then I have to take off the cover, disassemble the dicing kit so I can clean it out and then reassemble everything and continue to use it. I'm not sure how this can be improved on but it very annoying when it happens.

Awesome machine

By 

from WV

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Red Food Processor:

This is a beast of a food processor! It is very large and did not fit on the counter under my standard cabinets, but it fits under the cabinets over my nook area. The attachments also come in a huge storage box. The candy apple color is gorgeous and looks beautiful on my counter. I am very pleased with the performance of this machine. It dices potatoes like a champ, in seconds. You just drop them in the shoot and bam, they are diced! It is very sturdy. The performance gets 5 stars. I'm giving 4 stars because mine did not come with 2 discs and trying to find them to purchase has been difficult. As pricey as this machine is, it should have came with all attachments.

Very disappointing

By 

from Denver

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Red Food Processor:

I am very disappointed in the performance of this food processor. Maybe it's effective for slicing since I haven't tried that, but the basic operation and effectiveness of the regular blade is poor. I thought having two sizes of bowls would be great, but you have to use the smaller bowl inside the larger one, so you end up dirtying both. It's also very big and bulky and thus doesn't fit on my counter (and I have a relatively large kitchen). Having to change all the parts depending on the function being used is annoying also.

Comments about KitchenAid 16-Cup Red Food Processor:

I finally replaced my 10-year old KitchenAid food processor with the ProLine and it looks like it's going to keep me in great shape for at least another decade.
Love the sturdiness of the base and the efficiency of the blades. Definitely worth the investment.
