Pros & Cons
This unit takes up a lot less space than many other brands. That makes it perfect for people living in a small apartment or people who just do not have a lot of room on the counters in their kitchen. However, this is still a rather large machine and may even need to be stored in a cabinet for people with a lack of space. It is a rather heavy appliance, which means that you will not want to move it around with each use if you do not have to do so.
The addition of the mini bowl is perfect for processing smaller amounts of food and liquids, however there is some leakage when it is used. However, there is also some leakage with the main bowl around the lid when there is liquid in the bowl, such as when pureeing.
The sound or lack of sound, with the KitchenAid 700-Watt processor is a big benefit. Unlike most food processors which are really loud, you can’t even here this unit in the next room when it’s on. This is perfect for people who might have sleeping kids in the house or elderly parents sleeping in the house.
