Rated 1 out of 5 by Eva from Very Disappointed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Having used cheaper food processors over the last 30 years I decided to invest in what I would have considered a more superior and certainly a much more expensive model. Kitchenaid Artisan Processor. I am extremely disappointed in this processor. It is big, heavy and ridiculously difficult to even open and attach the lid...as for the attachments...crazy! If I could return this item I could. If I bought this processor at a similar price to previous ones I still would not be happy with it. I love cooking and I used my previous one several times a week. I would not recommend this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aquafarmer50 from A wonderful investment so far. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased this machine to replace a Box Store unit. Primary use to date is preparation of ingredients for home canning, which I have done for fourty years. I love the prep bowl, which allows for processing ingredients then added to the main bowl, without having to clean the main bowl first. Very easy to clean. Ruggedly built. Should last the rest of my lifetime. My only complaint so far is that I keep finding large chunks of fruit or vegetables still remaining partially processed even after several minutes of blending. This might be part of my learning curve to get acquainted with my machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alex from Love with a touch of mold [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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? :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wendy7828 from I love, love, love this machine! I've had this machine for several weeks and have used it quite a bit and just love it. I also have a Kitchenaid 13 Cup Food Processor and purchased the Pro Line because I wanted a larger machine with the 16 Cup bowl. The Pro Line seems to chop tomatoes, onions, potatoes, etc., so much nicer than my 13 Cup model - I can only think it's because of the more powerful motor - it's a bit pricey - but I love it! It makes my prep work so much nicer and the cleanup is a breeze. I'm one that cleans up right away and I rinse the bowls, blades immediatly after use and have had no trouble with food getting stuck. The Pro Line machine's blades/bowls, work very similar to the 13 Cup model so I had no trouble learning how to use it. I did read the manual that came with the machine; however.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Linda from Very disappointing [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Crafty D from Awesome machine [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by magsnic from Poor quality I am SO unhappy with this product. Do NOT buy it. I'm the sort of person who keeps her gadgets in the original packaging; my kitchen equipment is very well cared for. This food processor was hand washed and has never seen the inside of a dishwasher. So, imagine my surprise when it started falling apart. The blade snapped while making fresh breadcrumbs. On inspection you can see that the metal completely snapped - fresh bread did this! Of course when the blade flew off it destroyed the bowl - thankfully the plastic didn't fail and it kept the blade from causing injury to anyone. As well the lid has fallen apart. It's full of mould because you can't clean under the black housing, but water gets in when you wash it and can't dry properly. And, the piece that holds the safety tab somehow snapped off (possibly due to poor manufacturing in the first place) and the entire housing just fell apart. I begrudingly started researching replacement parts even though the issues lie 100% with manufacturing and definitely not by user error (there's absolutely no reason I should be paying for replacement parts) and became even more irate given the price of the replacements. As I'm doing all of this the water pump failed on our 3 year old KitchenAid refrigerator and we are now having to get replacement parts for that. I am completely disgusted by KitchenAid. I'm so mad that I gave up my ancient +20 year old Cuisinart food processor for this piece of junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lou50 from Don’t waste your money. Broke within a few uses. Looks like something actually melted. The dicer is useless. Clogs up. I’ve had to leave it on the side with rotting vegetables in it. I cannot open it. Just too much going on with it. Really regret buying it.
