Dicing kit and storage case assembly issues

The KitchenAid® Dicing Kit Accessory for 13, 14, and 16 Cup Food Processors slices then dices hard or soft fruits and vegetables for uniform cubes every time.

  • Perfect for salsa, dicing potatoes for hash browns, or fruits for a summer fruit salad.
  • The Dicing Kit comes with select 13 and 14 cup model  regular mouth food processors and may include a dicing kit cover with a  regular feed tube if your model comes with a wide mouth feed tube.
  • It can also be purchased separately and includes a dicing kit cover with a regular (not wide mouth) feed tube.
    •  The dicing kit cover with the feed tube works as both a dicing kit storage case cover as well as a work bowl lid for your food processor.

NOTE:  The dicing kit can only be used with a regular size feed tube  (as shown).

Inserting the grid properly into the food processor or storage case: 

IMPORTANT:   Make sure to place the grid properly, with the grid edge flush side UP in order to fit properly in the food processor work bowl, and storage case.

  • If it is installed upside down, the food processor will not turn on, and the storage case will not close. 
  • To reinsert into the storage case, place the grid, flush side UP in the  case, matching the notches to the indentations to enable the storage case lid to engage. 
  • TIP:  Align the grid with the clean out handle stored beneath to ensure it is properly placed in the case.
    •  You should be able to see the entire handle of the cleanout tool beneath the grid if stored properly.

NOTE:  You will see embossed numbers and letters on the underside of the dicing grid.  

  • These should not be visible if assembled properly.

Removing the lid from the Dicing Kit: 

  • To remove the lid from the dicing kit, place your thumb on the indentation, and slide to the LEFT to release the lid and lift UP to remove.

NOTE:  The lid may be slightly difficult to remove when new, but will become easier with use.
