I ordered this super cool Kitchen Aid 13 Cup Food Processor from QVC and it arrived today,
As you can see from the photo above it's quite a bit larger than the Sunbeam Oskar food processor my Mom bought me around 20 years ago.
I unpacked it, washed all the parts and read over all the directions so I'd be ready to try it out. The Oskar is basically a chopper and the Kitchen Aid is a multi-tasking workhorse. I'm excited about being able to slice foods so that's where I started. I grabbed a block of cheddar cheese and sliced it, wow how cool is this?!
Next I peeled a half dozen carrots and sliced those a little thinner than my cheddar cheese for dehydrating. The machine sounded different as the last carrots went through.
As I took it apart to clean it again I noticed this -
I'm bummed, it's broken after two uses. Not a very good value for the $$$.
I have read the Kitchen Aid warranty information, looks like they'll replace it - now I suppose I'll find out just how good their service really is. I also need to see if QVC will do anything for me, I'm not sure I want a replacement if you only get two uses out of it at a time.
I'll keep you up to date with how this all turns out.
Thanks for visiting my blog today -
