Q & As


KitchenAid Artisan 4L Food Processor 3.2 5 9 9
Lid broken yet again Bought this 30 June last year. After a few weeks it stopped working. Kitchenaid seems to know there is a problem with the lids as I was told to shake it to see if it rattled, yes it did. I was sent a new bowl and cover but it took weeks! Tried to use it today, same problem, Great no food processor over a bank holiday. 18 April 2014
Great product for large families Fantastic product if you're hosting dinner parties or have a large family- it's very efficient and (relatively) easy to use. The amount it takes to clean all of the pieces though means it's not worth it if you're just cooking for two! Other than that, a good buy. 11 March 2014
Very Good Product Very quick to make things , but does take a while to wash and dry all the bowls and tubes. But would recomend and mention about the cleaning of this product. Pleased so far. 05 February 2014
I love it Had mine bought as a Christmas present and love it. Don't have any problems with it and I am right handed. I find it very easy to use and clean and use it most days. I had a magimix before and loved that too but this looks so much nicer I leave it on the worktop so always ready for use. 25 January 2014
Very good addition to my kitchen It was a very drawn out process when it came to me trying to choose a food processor. I am very pleased with my purchase, considering that I am cooking every day, it was a must purchase for me. So far i have used it for slicing and was truly impressed with the results, I have tried slicing using different thickness, it has 6 options, very useful for gratin dauphinois, for example, as it will take only a few seconds to make it. The big plus for me also was, that it seems to be the only food processor on the market that will make cube cuts. Recently I have tried to make a nut loaf, its preparation involved using many different ingredients such as nuts, herbs, vegetables, and cheese. So during the preparation I had a full opportunity to try almost every option available with this machine, including making pastry. Machine itself is very sturdy and stylish and for me it is not a minus that the handle is on the left hand side, as you don't need to hold it. As for cleaning, it is very simple and it is dishwasher safe. So, if you want to make your life much easier I would recommend you to get one. 20 January 2014
Another lid problem Like the review below, we have also had lid problems. The first was the water getting into the hole in the handle seemed to clog up the spring. This prevented the microswitch being tripped and so the machine would switch on only 10% of the time. Now, in addition, he lid has started to rotate, when the unit is in use. This means that when the blender does switch on, it switches itself off again within 10 seconds, unless you hold it closed. This suggests major design flaws in a premium price product. 04 January 2014
Lid problem The lid is designed so that another piece has to be slotted into it to ensure it is not used incorrectly. This means that there is a hole in the lid which lets in washing up water which cannot be removed and which does not dry out properly. I took the first machine back to John Lewis and they readily replaced it . The problem still occurs with the new one and after 6 months of use I can't think that the accumulation of grunge is altogether healthy. I am going to have to take this up with Kitchen Aid but unless they change the design I can't think how it can be resolved. I'm very surprised no-one else has mentioned this - I can't think how it can be avoided. Otherwise it is a great machine and I prefer it to the Magimix equivalent but I now wish I'd stuck with Magimix. 29 December 2013
Fantastic I bought this as a present for my wife and I must say its been a hit. Its very well made and comes with a wide selection of useful tools/extras. Its even got a chip cutting attachment!! This machine can easily cope with any food processing job, and my wife tells me its excellent. She finds it easy to use and is over the moon with it. Top buy!! 10 December 2013
