Troubleshooting
• If your Food Processor should
fail to operate, check the
following:
– Make sure the work bowl and work
bowl cover are properly locked on
the base.
– See if the Food Processor is plugged
into a proper electrical outlet. If it
is, unplug the Food Processor, then
plug it into the same outlet again.
If the Food Processor still does not
work, check the fuse or circuit
breaker on the electrical circuit the
Food Processor is connected to and
make sure the circuit is closed.
• If the Food Processor shuts off
while it is running:
– The Food Processor may be
overheated. If the motor exceeds a
certain temperature, it will
automatically shut off to prevent
damage. This should be an
extremely rare occurrence. If it
happens, press the Off Button and
wait 15 minutes for the Food
Processor to cool before resuming.
If the Food Processor still refuses to
run, wait an additional 15 minutes
for the Food Processor to cool.
If the problem cannot be corrected
with the steps in this section, see the
KitchenAid Warranty and Service
section on pages 53-54. Do not
return the Food Processor to the
retailer – they do not provide service.

Food Processing Tips
USING THE
MULTIPURPOSE BLADE
To mince garlic or to chop
fresh herbs or small quantities
of vegetables:
With processor running, add food
through the feed tube. Process until
chopped. For best results, make sure
work bowl and herbs are very dry
before chopping.
To chop fresh fruits or
vegetables:
Peel, core, and/or remove seeds. Cut
food in 1 to 11⁄2-inch pieces. Process
food to desired size, using short
pulses, 1 to 2 seconds each time.
Scrape sides of bowl, if necessary.
To chop nuts or make
nut butters:
Process up to 3 cups of nuts to
desired texture, using short pulses,
1 to 2 seconds each time. For a
coarser texture, process smaller
batches, pulsing 1 or 2 times, 1 to 2
seconds each time. Pulse more often
for finer texture. For nut butters,
process continuously until smooth.
Store in refrigerator.
To puree cooked fruits and
vegetables (except potatoes):
Add 1⁄4 cup liquid from recipe per cup
of food. Process food, using short
pulses, until finely chopped. Then
process continuously until reaching
desired texture. Scrape sides of bowl,
if necessary.
To prepare mashed potatoes:
To chop cooked or raw meat,
poultry or seafood:
Shred hot cooked potatoes using the
shredding disc. Exchange shredding
disc for multipurpose blade. Add
softened butter, milk, and seasonings.
Pulse 3 to 4 times, 2 to 3 seconds
each time, until smooth and milk is
absorbed. Do not overprocess.
The food should be very cold. Cut in
1-inch pieces. Process up to 1 pound
at a time to desired size, using short
pulses, 1 to 2 seconds each time.
Scrape sides of bowl, if necessary.
To chop dried (or sticky) fruits:
To make bread, cookie, or
cracker crumbs:
The food should be cold. Add 1⁄4 cup
flour from recipe per 1⁄2 cup dried
fruit. Process fruit, using short pulses,
until reaching desired texture.
Break food into 11⁄2 to 2-inch pieces.
Process until fine. For larger pieces,
pulse 2 to 3 times, 1 to 2 seconds
each time. Then process until fine.
To finely chop citrus peel:
To melt chocolate in a recipe:
With sharp knife, peel colored portion
(without white membrane) from
citrus. Cut peel in small strips. Process
until finely chopped.
Combine chocolate and sugar from
recipe in work bowl. Process until
finely chopped. Heat liquid from
recipe. With processor running, pour
hot liquid through the feed tube.
Process until smooth.
14
Food Processing Tips
To grate hard cheeses, such as
Parmesan and Romano:
To slice or shred fruits or
vegetables that are long and
relatively small in diameter, such
as celery, carrots, and bananas:
Never attempt to process cheese that
cannot be pierced with the tip of a
sharp knife. You can use the multipurpose blade to grate hard cheeses.
Cut cheese in 1-inch pieces. Place in
work bowl. Process, using short
pulses, until coarsely chopped. Process
continuously until finely grated. Pieces
of cheese can also added through the
feed tube while the processor is
running.
Cut food to fit feed
tube vertically or
horizontally, and pack
feed tube securely to
keep food positioned
properly. Process using
even pressure. Or use
the small feed tube in
the two-piece food pusher. Position
food vertically in the tube and use the
small food pusher to process food.
USING A SLICING OR
SHREDDING DISC
To cut julienne, or
match stick, strips of vegetables
and fruits:
To slice or shred fruits and
vegetables that are round,
such as onions, apples, and
green peppers:
Cut food to fit feed tube horizontally.
Position food horizontally in feed
tube. Process, using even
pressure to make planklike slices. Re-stack slices
and position vertically or
horizontally in feed tube.
Process, using even
pressure.
Peel, core, and/or remove seeds. Cut
in halves or quarters to fit feed tube.
Position in feed tube. Sometimes it's
easier to remove the work bowl cover
and insert large food items into the
feed tube from the bottom, rather
than the top. Process, using even
pressure.
To slice or shred fruits and
vegetables that are small, such as
strawberries, mushrooms, and
radishes:
Position food vertically or horizontally
in layers within the feed tube. Fill
feed tube in order to keep food
positioned properly. Process, using
even pressure. Or use the small feed
tube in the two-piece food pusher.
Position food vertically in the tube
and use the small food pusher to
process food.
To shred spinach
and other leaves:
Stack leaves. Roll up
and stand up in feed
tube. Process, using
even pressure.
15
Food Processing Tips
To slice uncooked meat or
poultry, such as stir-fry meats:
USING THE
DOUGH BLADE
Cut or roll food to fit feed tube. Wrap
and freeze food until hard to the
touch, 30 minutes to 2 hours,
depending on thickness of food.
Check to be sure you can still pierce
food with the tip of a sharp knife. If
not, allow to thaw slightly. Process,
using even pressure.
The dough blade is
specially designed for mixing and
kneading yeast dough quickly and
thoroughly. For the best results, do
not knead recipes which use more
than 2-3 cups of flour.
To slice cooked meat or poultry,
including salami, pepperoni, etc.:
Food should be very cold. Cut in
pieces to fit feed tube. Process food
using firm, even pressure.
To shred firm and soft cheeses:
Firm cheese should be very cold. For
best results with soft cheeses, such as
mozzarella, freeze 10 to 15 minutes
before processing. Cut to fit feed
tube. Process, using even pressure.
16
Helpful Hints
7. Sometimes slender foods, such as
carrots or celery, fall over in the
feed tube, resulting in an uneven
slice. To minimize this, cut food
in several pieces and
pack the feed tube
with the food. For
processing small or
slender items, the
small feed tube in the
two piece food pusher
will prove especially
convenient.
8. When preparing a cake or cookie
batter or quick bread, use the
multipurpose blade to cream fat
and sugar first. Add dry
ingredients last. Place nuts and
fruit on top of flour mixture to
prevent overchopping. Process
nuts and fruits, using short
pulses, until blended with other
ingredients. Do not overprocess.
9. When shredded or sliced food
piles up on one side of the bowl,
stop the processor and redistribute
the food using a spatula.
10. When food quantity reaches the
bottom of a slicing or shredding
disc, remove the food.
11. A few larger pieces of food may
remain on top of the disc after
slicing or shredding. If desired, cut
these by hand and add to mixture.
12. Organize processing tasks to
minimize bowl cleanup. Process
dry or firm ingredients before
liquid ingredients.
13. To clean ingredients from the
multipurpose blade easily, just
empty the work bowl, replace the
lid, and pulse 1 to 2 seconds to
spin the blade clean.
1. Never process any food that is so
hard or firmly frozen that it cannot
be pierced with the tip of a sharp
knife. Hard food can cause damage
to the blade or motor. If a piece of
hard food, such as carrot, becomes
wedged or stuck on the blade, stop
the processor and remove the
blade. Carefully remove food from
the blade.
2. Do not overfill work bowl or mini
bowl. For thin mixtures, fill work
bowl up to 1⁄2 to 2⁄3 full. For thicker
mixtures, fill work bowl up to 3⁄4
full. For liquids, fill up to the
maximum level as described on
page 10. When chopping, the
work bowl should be no more
than 1⁄3 to 1⁄2 full. Use the mini
bowl for up to 1 cup of liquid or
1
⁄2 cup solids.
3. Position slicing discs so the cutting
surface is just to the right of the
feed tube. This allows the blade a
full rotation before contacting
the food.
4. To capitalize on the speed of the
processor, drop ingredients to be
chopped through the feed tube
while the processor is running.
5. Different foods require varying
degrees of pressure for best
shredding and slicing results. In
general, use light pressure for soft,
delicate foods (strawberries,
tomatoes, etc.), moderate pressure
for medium foods (zucchini,
potatoes, etc.), and firmer
pressure for harder foods (carrots,
apples, hard cheeses, partially
frozen meats, etc.).
6. Soft and medium-hard cheese
may spread out or roll up on the
shredding disc. To avoid this,
shred only well-chilled cheese.
