If you do a lot of cooking at home, then it might be time for you to invest in a really good food processor. Food processors are great for speeding up repetitive tasks like slicing vegetables. You can even use them to make your own homemade salsas and dips. As you check out the selection of food processors, you will notice that they are available in a wide variety of sizes and prices. One of the best is the model KFP1333 KitchenAid 13-cup food processor.

As you may already know, the KitchenAid brand is well known for its reputation of making quality small kitchen appliances. And this food processor is no exception. It can do everything from slice tomatoes on the thinnest setting with no problem to effortlessly kneading some bread dough.
2 Bowls Makes it Easy
One of the things I really like about this food processor is that it actually comes with two work bowls. So, if you only need to slice a few things you do not have to dirty a large bowl because you can just use the smaller one. It also means that you can slice two different things at the same time without having to stop and clean out the bowl. This really saves me a lot of time when I’m cooking. You get one 4-cup bowl and one 13-cup bowl with the food processor. The larger bowl is great for when you are making a lot of food, such as a holiday dinner or a vegetable stir-fry.
Unlike some of the cheaper models, the KitchenAid 13-cup food processor actually lets you set the level of thickness for the slices. This is great for those times when you want something sliced thinly. The thickness can be adjusted between one and six levels by moving the access lever. It is actually pretty simple to use.
KitchenAid 13-cup Food Processor Controls
The front of the food processor is where you will find the buttons for the three different speeds. They are large and clearly marked, which is great for cooks with vision issues like my grandma. You should use the pulse speed option when you are creating a salsa, puree, salad dressing, dip, sauce or something similar. This option gives you the most control over consistency. The high speed setting can be used for quick slicing, shredding or julienning your fruits and veggies. If you are worried about presentation or are slicing thin-skinned items, like tomatoes, the low speed is the best option for you. It can slice through both thick and thin-skinned fruits and veggies and leave them looking perfect. Even thinly sliced tomatoes on the low speed look perfect. It is actually kind of impressive.
Whole Fruits & Veg in one Go!
The size of the feed tube on the KitchenAid 13-cup food processor is great because it is so wide that you can put whole fruits and veggies in it for processing. The tube is actually adjustable to three different widths, so you can tweak its size for your needs. But you can put in a whole potato, cucumber or even tomato with no worries. And of course the long, slender items like carrots fit in just fine. One of the main benefits of using a food processor for slicing and dicing your fruits and veggies, other than the time saving, is that you end up with nice, uniform slices. So, if you are having a cookout you can slice tomatoes so that all of the slices are the same size. It is also nice to slice berries in the food processor so that you fingers do not get stained from the juices.
KitchenAid Food Processor Colors
You can order the KitchenAid 13-cup food processor in a color to match your kitchen decor. At this time there are four color options available. You can choose from silver, black, white or red.
What’s in the KFP1333 box?
This food processor comes with five attachments in the box. You get two multipurpose blades for everyday use. Additional attachments are a dough blade, a dual slicing disc and the storage case for the blades. If you are concerned about cleanup, don’t be. All of the removable parts can be tossed in the dishwasher with no worries.
You might be concerned about the presence of toxic BPA in the two plastic bowls. Fortunately, the KitchenAid 13-cup food processor has BPA-free lids and bowls.
