The KitchenAid KFP1322ER has some features that are upgrades over previous iterations. For example, the extra wide feeding chute. I have experience with older (outdated) food processors with small chutes. This is a problem because it forces you to use your food processor in one of two ways: put the food inside the work bowl with the chute detached, or chop up the food into small pieces. Either way is a hassle.
Another feature that I really like about this food processor is the exact slice. This feature lets you select the exact thickness of your cuts. You don’t have to worry about manually adjusting your blades. You just simply slide the lever from left to right.
Bowls with chopped raw tomatoes and onions
There are only 4 buttons on the KitchenAid KFP1322ER, making it extremely easy to use. Those buttons are off, low, high, pulse. These speed options allow you to properly add ingredients the right way. For example, when pureeing, you might be better served using “pulse”. This gives you more control of the texture.
The seal between the work bowl and feed chute is very tight. This means that when you add food into the food processor you don’t have to worry about food leaking, you can just keep adding more food.
Everything that you need is included to get you up and running the same day that you receive your new food processor. You get the 13-cup work bowl, adjustable slicing disc, reversible shredding disc, dough blade, multipurpose blade, mini multipurpose blade, spatula and accessory case.
One of the things I always point out and compliment KitchenAid for is the mostly metal construction of their appliances. The body of the KFP1322ER has a mostly plastic construction. If you have other KitchenAid appliances, this might disappoint you. I always thought that the metal body construction was something that contributed to KitchenAid’s durability and allure. Perhaps, the plastic body construction means nothing as it pertains to quality. At the least, it’s something to think about.
