Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Very difficult to use

Submitted by Polly - 9/22/2017

This appliance is very difficult to use. I have a hard time figuring out how to get it to process food. The lid is difficult to attach and I can not figure out how to get it to run once I have put food in to be processed. I tried to make salsa recently and ended up using my blender to chop everything up. I would not recommend this product.

Very compact food processor

Too fun for words !!!

Submitted by Late Bloomer - 9/7/2017

Always wanted one of these but never was willing to treat myself. Between the sales and the coupons I couldn't resist any more. Having a blast. First few tries a little challenging as you figure it out and get comfortable with the appliance. But once everything starts to move a little freely, it is a blast. Can't wait for winter to make cutting up my veggies for chili that much easier and faster. (These make great gifts !!)

Can't Keep the Lid Chopper Assembly in Place

Submitted by Roxxfy## - 9/3/2017

I purchased this unit as a more attractive replacement for my Cuisinart (boring stainless) and the red was perfect. I was impressed by the quality of the chopped food with both settings. HOWEVER, after the first couple of uses the lid assembly separated and I was unable to put it back together to use again. I exchanged it for another unit with the same specs. AGAIN the lid separated into the same two pieces and I'm back to where I started. An attractive compact mini processer x two neither of which I can use. This is really too sad because the red is dynamite and matches my other Kitchen Aid appliances.

Not as simple as my old 3 cup food processor

Submitted by TN VOL - 9/2/2017

The designer of this new food processor must not use kitchen appliances as often as I do. The black lid is difficult to take off and on and to get it directly in line with the handle where you press for it to chop or pulse. It has a tiny plastic area like lining up legos. I like the color red and black and the chop and pulse feature but it takes me 5 min or more to figure out how to get the black lid off the clear base without breaking the plastic. I replaced a 2009 red Kitchen Aid 3 cup processor and when it wouldn't work I called KA customer service. My warranty was on file and the agent said I could purchase a new one with free shipping so that was the perk but I had no idea it wasn't the same easy design. It chops onions fine as that is aIl I use it for. I do like the way the cord wraps around the base to hold it in place for storage.

Troubled design

Submitted by Constant mom - 8/23/2017

Bought it as a replacement for similar kitchenaid chopper that was no longer functional to clean because apparently the blade welded itself to the base unit after being running in short bursts to chop some cooked meat chops. The lid came apart immediately with use and it seems prone to the same over heating issue as the first one. Have to be ginger with it.

Best Small Chopper!

Submitted by JMS - 8/20/2017

I have had "many" small choppers. None have been able to chop and purée like this one. I put four garlic cloves in without any liquid and it chopped it to perfection. I did run into a problem with the blade (insert ring broke).

Best food processor

Submitted by Susan cooks - 8/20/2017

I bought this to use with spiralizer recipes. I wish I had bought one years ago! It is the perfect size, works so well and doesn't make me dread having to drag out the food processor. It fits perfectly on the counter. I use it all of the time for many different reasons. In fact, I look for an excuse to use it. Someplace to use, amazingly quick to clean. Just love it. I hope it lasts forever.

Great mini food processor

Submitted by Opinion02122 - 8/11/2017

I bought this in order to make good food toppings for the world's fussiest dog! It works great! I cut up chunks of meat, and put them in. The processor makes short work of a boring task and makes a lovely meaty topping for his kibble. The processor is small and easy to use and store. And, best of all, it's a Kitchenaid, at a terrific price! A mini workhorse!

Hard little worker!

Submitted by LabLoverx2 - 7/15/2017

I bought this little appliance about three weeks ago and use it daily. I just about returned it because it wouldn't start, then discovered the blades were not seeded in properly and then I was off. I use this daily as I feed my two labs raw, and use it to chop meat (yes tough meat!), raw veggies and fruits for them. It is small enough to sit on the counter of my very small kitchen and cleans up in a snap. Even if I had a large workhorse of a food processor, I would recommend this machine for those quick small chopping and pureeing tasks you do daily.

Submitted by Diane - 7/12/2017

Our blender decided it couldn't handle the jobs I gave it, so I decided it was time to get an actual food processor. After reading reviews and specs online, I decided to try oht the KitchenAid mini food processor, and so far it's worked exactly as I need. Easy to assemble, easy to clean, and small footprint in my kitchen. Now I'm trying to think up other things to make just to keep testing it out. I wish I had added this to my cooking/baking repertoire before burning out the blender, but so it goes.

Nice appliance for small amounts of food

Submitted by Hiker - 7/11/2017

I bought this as a second mini processor for a summer house. I liked the first one I purchased to process small amounts of food to add to any dish. My husband needs to have onions and vegetables with skins processed for a health condition but I don't want to give up the flavor of those foods in the many recipes that I prepare. The mini processor is ideal for this purpose.
