Kitchenaid KFPW760 Food Processor Review
The KitchenAid KFPW760 Food Processor is another popular appliance in the Kitchenaid range. However, like most Kitchenaid products, it is plagued by a few annoying issues.
KitchenAid KFPW760 Overview
With 700W under the hood, this is a powerful food processor. It features a suitably wide mouth feed tube and three bowls (12-cup work bowl, 10-cup chef’s bowl and a 4-cup mini bowl with its own blade). With regards to blades and discs, you get a shredding disc, 2 x slicing discs (2mm and 4mm), a multi-purpose blade and a dough blade. A handy spatula completes the critical accessories included in the processor bundle.
Pulse control is available, which is always a plus. Bowls, discs and blades are all dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning very convenient.
So, all in all then this looks like a fabulous appliance. Yet again though, Kitchenaid has made some critical design flaws. First of all, the tube in the center of the bowl is very short, so you get spillage with liquids in particular if you fill it up too much. This means that while this is a 12-cup processor, you may not be able to use it to full capacity.
KitchenAid KFPW760 Verdict
As far as basic food processing tasks go, the Kitchenaid KFPW760 performs very well. Operation is smooth and quiet and the motor is powerful enough that we haven’t found anything that could slow it down yet. Unfortunately, given the price, it is hard to recommend this model over the more accomplished Cuisinart models.
KitchenAid KFP740CR Food Processor Review
A few deal breaking flaws spoil the party for the KitchenAid KFP740CR, an otherwise decent 9-cup food processor. Read on to find out what you need to know before buying, and we also recommend a worthy alternative.
KitchenAid KFP740CR Overview
The unit features a work bowl and a multipurpose stainless steel blade. Pulse control operation allows for better control when required.
A great addition that’s become standard for the larger Kitchenaid processors is the 4-cup mini bowl, great for turning the food processor into a quick mini chopper. The 1/2 horsepower motor keeps everything running smoothly and surprisingly quietly.
Included accessories besides the mini bowl are the dough blade, a slicing disc, shredding disc and spatula. The included booklet/manual contains instructions as well as recipes.
The most nagging issue with this model is that the center tube is low, which leads to processed material being squeezed under the blade threads. This can be a nightmare to clean and lead to contamination concerns, especially when chopping meat. Spillage also occurs due to the center tube simply being too short.
Despite all the other great features of the KitchenAid KFP740CR, these design flaws can be a deal breaker and is something Kitchenaid will have to address.
KitchenAid KFP750 Food Processor Review
The KitchenAid KFP750 Food Processor is one of the most popular and highly rated food processors on the market, offering a big 12-cup capacity, powerful 700W motor and smooth operation. Let’s take a closer look at this excellent appliance.
KitchenAid KFP750 Overview
Versatility is part and parcel of the Kitchenaid KFP750. It features pulse controls for more precise operation when needed. The 12-cup bowl is suitably large and dual feed tubes are provided.
The accessory kit is excellent, with seven pieces provided. These include a 4-cup bowl with a stainless steel blade, a 2mm and 4mm slicing disc, dough blade, 4mm shredding disc and a spatula. So, everything you need to do what needs to be done is in the box.
This model includes a storage case to make it easier to keep your accessories organized and close at hand. All the key parts are dishwasher safe, so cleaning will be easy enough.
In practice, the Kitchenaid KFP750 performs beautifully, with one drawback – there are sealing problems when processing liquid which can lead to leaking. This does not seem to be common though and could be due to some people filling the bowl past the fill line.
Operation is quiet and the motor seems sufficiently powerful to get the job done. It chops, shreds and handles dough like a champion.
The unit is big and bulky, so be aware of that if you have limited storage space in your kitchen.
