The KitchenAid® PRO LINE™ Series Food Processor is engineered
to provide commercial quality performance. A professional 16-cup work
bowl and extra-wide feed tube sit atop a rugged die-cast metal base.
The powerful 1000-watt motor is designed to make quick work of
the most demanding food preparation tasks. The heavy-gauge
cutting blades and discs are made from the highest quality stainless
steel for exceptionally clean slicing and shredding. This machine
doesn’t trade performance for capacity – you’ll achieve extraordinary
results no matter what the task.
The outstanding performance is matched by exceptional
convenience. A mini bowl and mini blade transform the PRO LINE™
Series food processor into a mini-chopper, the perfect tool for finely
chopping herbs, nuts, onions, and garlic. The Ultra Wide Mouth™
Feed Tube is one of the industry’s largest – it will process tomatoes,
cucumbers, and potatoes with a minimum of sectioning or slicing. Another great timesaver is the 13-cup
chef’s bowl: place it inside the work bowl, and you’ll be able to slice or shred an item while keeping the
work bowl clean for another ingredient.
The KitchenAid® PRO LINE™ Series: professional quality for the discriminating home chef. From the
company distinguished by its legendary craftsmanship.

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, and the food pusher is inserted to the
maximum fill line on the feed tube.
– See if the food processor is plugged into a grounded 3
prong 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.
22
• If you have difficulty removing the food pusher from the
feed tube:
– Food particles are probably lodged in the interlock system.
To free the pusher, soak the work bowl cover in warm water
or wash it in a dishwasher.
If the problem cannot be corrected with the steps in this section,
see the KitchenAid Warranty and Service section on page 93*.
* Do not return the food processor to the retailer – they do not provide service.

FOOD PROCESSING TIPS
Using the Multipurpose Blade
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 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
desired texture is achieved. Scrape sides of bowl if necessary.
To prepare mashed potatoes:
Insert chef’s bowl into the work bowl. Using the shredding disc,
shred hot, cooked potatoes. Remove the chef’s bowl with potatoes.
Place multipurpose blade in work bowl, and add shredded potatoes,
softened butter, milk, and seasonings. Pulse 3 to 4 times, 2 to 3
seconds each time, until milk is absorbed and texture is smooth. Do
not overprocess.
To chop dried (or sticky) fruits:
The fruit should be cold. Add 1⁄4 cup of flour from recipe per 1⁄2 cup
dried fruit. Applying short pulses, process fruit until desired texture
is achieved.
To finely chop citrus peel:
With a sharp knife, peel colored portion (without white membrane)
from citrus. Cut peel into small strips. Process until finely chopped.
24
To mince garlic, or to chop fresh herbs or small quantities
of vegetables:
With processor running, add food through the small feed tube.
Process until chopped. For best results, make sure work bowl and
ingredients are very dry before chopping garlic or fresh herbs.
To grate hard cheeses, such as Parmesan and Romano:
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.
FOOD PROCESSING TIPS
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 chop cooked or raw meat, poultry, or seafood:
The food should be very cold. Cut in 1-inch pieces. Process up to
21⁄2 pounds at a time to desired size, using short pulses, 1 to
2 seconds each time. Scrape sides of bowl if necessary.
To make bread, cookie, or cracker crumbs:
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 melt chocolate:
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 small feed tube. Process until smooth.

25
FOOD PROCESSING TIPS
Using a Slicing or a Shredding Disc
NOTE: When cutting and packing food items in the Ultra Wide
Mouth™ feed tube, do not exceed the maximum fill line; this will
permit the pusher to engage the interlock and the unit to operate.
To slice or shred fruits or vegetables that are long and
relatively small in diameter, such as celery, carrots, and
bananas:
Cut food to fit feed tube vertically or horizontally, and pack feed
tube securely to keep food properly positioned. Process, applying
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 the food.
To cut julienne or match-stick strips of vegetables and fruits:
Cut food to fit feed tube horizontally. Position food horizontally in
feed tube. Process, applying even pressure to make plank-like slices.
Re-stack slices and position vertically or horizontally in feed tube.
Process, applying even pressure.
To slice or shred fruits and vegetables that are round,
such as onions, apples, and green peppers:
Peel, core, and/or remove seeds. Cut into halves or quarters to fit
feed tube. Position in feed tube and process, applying even pressure.
26
To shred spinach and other leaves:
Stack leaves. Roll up stacked leaves and stand the rolls vertically in
the feed tube. Process, applying even pressure.
To slice cooked meat or poultry, including
salami, pepperoni, etc.:
Cooked meat should be very cold. Cut into 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, applying even pressure.
FOOD PROCESSING TIPS
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, but do not
exceed the maximum fill line. Process, applying 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 the Dough Blade
The dough blade is specially designed for mixing and kneading
yeast dough quickly and thoroughly. For the best results, do not
knead recipes that use more than 6 cups of all-purpose flour, or
4 cups of whole grain flour.
To slice uncooked meat or poultry, such as stir-fry meats:
Cut or roll food to fit feed tube. Wrap and freeze meat until it is
solid to touch (30 minutes to 2 hours depending on thickness of
meat). Make sure you can still pierce the meat with the tip of a
sharp knife. If not, allow meat to thaw slightly. Process, applying
even pressure.

FOOD PROCESSING TIPS
Using the Egg Whip
To make egg white meringue:
Place 4 egg whites and 1⁄4 teaspoon cream of tartar in work bowl
fitted with the egg whip attachment. Process about 15 to 20
seconds, until foamy. With processor running, slowly add 1⁄4 to 1⁄3
cup of sugar through the small feed tube. Process until stiff peaks
form, about 4 minutes. Stop processor as necessary to check texture
of mixture.
28
To whip cream:
Pour 1 cup heavy cream in work bowl fitted with egg whip
attachment. Process 30 seconds. With processor running, add
2 tablespoons powdered sugar through the small feed tube. Process
until soft peaks form, about 30 to 40 seconds. Stop processor as
necessary to check texture of mixture. With processor running, add
1
⁄2 teaspoon of vanilla, if desired, through the small feed tube.
Process until mixed. Do not overprocess.
For the best results, never attempt to whip more than 2 cups of cream.
HELPFUL HINTS
Organize processing tasks to minimize bowl cleanup. Process dry or firm ingredients
before liquid ingredients.

When cutting and packing food items in the Ultra Wide Mouth™ feed tube, do not
exceed the maximum fill line. This will permit the pusher to engage the interlock and the
unit to operate.
After removing the work bowl cover, place it upside down on the counter. This will help
keep the counter clean.
To easily clean ingredients from the multipurpose blade, just empty the work bowl,
replace the lid, and pulse 1 to 2 seconds to spin the blade clean.
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 to the maximum level as
indicated on the work bowl (see “Maximum Liquid Level” on page 17). 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.

To capitalize on the speed of the processor, drop ingredients to be chopped through
the small feed tube while the processor is running.
9
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. Using special care, remove food from the blade.
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 food.
Different foods require varying degrees of pressure for best shredding and slicing results.
In general, apply 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.).
10
30
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 with short pulses
until blended with other ingredients. Do not overprocess.

15
Soft and medium-hard cheese may spread out or roll up on the shredding disc. To
avoid this, shred only chilled cheese.
FOOD PROCESSING TIPS
11
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.
When shredded or sliced food piles up on one side of the bowl, stop the processor
and redistribute food using a spatula.
When food quantity reaches the bottom of a slicing or shredding disc, stop
processing and remove the food.
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 them to the mixture.

To remove the contents of the work bowl without
removing the multipurpose blade, grasp the work bowl
from the bottom and place one finger through the center
opening to hold the blade in place. Then remove food
from the bowl and blade with a spatula.

APPETIZER
PREPARATION AND
SERVING SUGGESTIONS
• When planning your menu, select an assortment of both hot and
cold appetizers.
• To keep your hors d'oeuvres at the proper serving temperature,
consider using slow cookers, heated chafing dishes, ice baths, and
so forth.
• It’s always wise to select as many make-ahead recipes as possible.
• At minimum, plan on preparing 4 appetizers per guest per hour.
• Set out serving dishes and platters needed for each menu item
well in advance of your event.
• Bake your appetizers in batches, so fresh, warm hors d'oeuvres
will always be available.
• For recipes calling for cooked chicken, consider:
– purchasing broasted chicken from the deli
– steaming, poaching, or grilling chicken breasts or thighs
– using prepared or packaged chicken strips or cubes
34
• When you’re serving exotic or unfamiliar appetizers, label them
with decorative place cards on the buffet table. Consider
including a short story or explanation of the history, ingredients,
or special preparation that went into their creation.
