Compact Food Processor FAQ's

KitchenAid Compact Food Processor

The KitchenAid® 7 Cup Food Processor is easy to use, clean and store. It features an innovative design with a one-click, twist-free bowl assembly and latched lid that is very easy to use and clean.

Benefits That Make Them Stand Out: 

  • Easy to Use: One-click, twist-free bowl assembly with a latched lid for easy setup.
  • Easy to Clean: A sealed, leak-resistant work bowl means less food gets trapped in the bowl and lid. The bowl, lid, and accessories are all dishwasher-safe.
  • Easy to Store: Built with a compact design, in-bowl accessory storage, and convenient cord wrap.
  • Simple Controls with 3 Speed Options: High, Low, and Pulse Speed to handle a variety of ingredients with precision. The easy-press paddles and illuminated LED controls make operation simple.
  • Chop, Puree, Shred, Knead, and Slice: Everything from cucumbers to tomatoes, nuts, cheeses, and more with the medium reversible slicing/shredding disc, thick slicing disc, dough blade (standard on KFP0719), and multi-purpose blade.
  • A Variety of Shapes and Sizes: Can be processed in the 2-in-1 feed tube located on the lid. The small pusher features a small oil drizzle opening for emulsifying sauces and dressings.
  • The blade and disc fit inside the bowl to make storage easy.


How do I Attach the Bowl to the Base?

Place the work bowl on the base, aligning the handle with the raised button on the right side of the base. The bowl will click into place and should be flush against the base when properly aligned.

Which Position Should I Place the Disc?

The disc can be placed in two different positions in the bowl: level with the top of the bowl for processing, and lower inside of the bowl, for storage. 

Are the Accessories Dishwasher Safe?

The bowl, lid, and accessories are top-rack dishwasher safe. To clean the base, wipe with a warm, damp cloth and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. Do not immerse the base in water or other liquid.
