Removing water or food particles from work bowl handle

Occasionally water and/or food particles get inside the small drainage hole at the bottom of a KitchenAid® food processor work bowl Handle.

To help prevent this from occurring:

  • Wash and dry the work bowl in the sink right away rather than soaking  it in the water,
    • If hand washing, hold the handle of the Work Bowl while washing it and do not submerge it in the water.
  • If cleaned in the dishwasher, do not combine with unrinsed dishes.  
    • The spray action of the dishwasher should help dislodge the food particles.  

The water will typically evaporate with time, although sometimes food particles remain inside the handle.
