The 3.1L Food Processor from KitchenAid is one of the first of their models to feature the ExactSlice system. Praised for speeding up food preparation and general cooking tasks; as there is no need to stop the machine and switch out blades or cutting disks if you require a different thickness in your slice, which can be done within a range of 1mm – 6mm. In regards to other cooking and food prep tasks whether they be whipping, slicing, shredding, mixing, kneading, mincing or pureeing, KitchenAid have kindly provided the 3.1L Food Processor with all the parts to get them done in no time at all. The base lock feature ensures the bowl goes nowhere when blending adding stability whilst processing, which also cuts down on unwanted noise and vibrations. And finally, there are the power options, with an option to choose between the lower 900RPM for coarse chopping and fine slicing, or the higher 1750RPM for shredding and thick slicing of harder vegetables. There is also the pulse button so that you can fully tailor the consistency of sauces, mashes, salsa’s and minces.
A Processor for All
Initially designed to focus on precise slicing in a consistent and reliable manner, it was quickly realised by KitchenAid that this machine was capable of much more. With the addition of a smaller 950ml capacity work bowl, it also means that smaller quantities can be prepared at the same time without having to wash out the larger bowl between processing certain ingredients. The 3-in-1 feed tube is often an overlooked feature and allows the user to guide different sized and shaped ingredients onto the blades or disks for continuous processing, in turn cutting down the total time taken. The feed chute also contains 3 pushers of which, the middle pusher can be used to measure and add liquid to whatever you're processing safely and accurately, perfect for salsas, dips and sauces. Aside from the previously mentioned ExactSlice disk, there is also a reversible (2mm & 4mm) shredding disk, Stainless Steel multipurpose blades for both the 3.1L and 950ml work bowls, egg whip and dough blade. For those keen on baking, the inclusion of an egg whip and dough blade can have you creating breads, pizza bases, meringues, mousses with more ease and finesse than ever before. And finally, the handy inclusion of the Accessory Case is almost like the cherry on the top of this package, allowing you to safely and efficiently store all the parts and accessories that come with the 3.1L Food Processor in one place ensuring that there is no time wasted in needless searching and more time for creating and enjoying.
