KitchenAid Food Processor Attachment Review

KitchenAid Food Processor AttachmentOne look at the KitchenAid Food Processor attachment, and you find yourself wondering why anyone would ever think of appending a small appliance to the hub of KitchenAid’s iconic stand mixer.

Maybe it suddenly dawned on them that, sooner or later, bloodshed might ensue from the sheer frustration of a thankless task being continuously forced on recalcitrant home chefs who clearly have better things to do with their lives than dice, chop and julienne stuff. Clearly, they needed to step in – pronto!

Let’s unearth the trials and tribulations FPA went through before finally gaining its place as one of the most highly acclaimed heroes of our culinary halls…

KSM1FPA KitchenAid Food Processor Attachment

KSM1FPA Food Processor AttachmentKitchenAid first came up with the KSM1FPA Food Processor attachment to take care of various prep tasks such as slicing, shredding and julienning.

Then I imagine they patted themselves on the back for a job well done, sat themselves down with a beer and waited for the compliments they had become accustomed to.

After all, they had produced a solid attachment with a wide feed tube, an exclusive ExactSlice System (an external slicing lever with lets you adjust slicing thickness from thick to thin) and 3 discs:

. Slicing disc;
. Shredding disc;
. Julienne disc.

The KSMFPAEP Accessory Kit is Born!

But what they got instead was mostly complaints – how could that be? Could they possibly have dropped the ball? 😮

KSMFPAEP Accessory KitAs it turned out, customers were not all pleased with their purchase, some even stating that the KSM1FPA was “basically an overpriced, bulky shredder/slicer”. They still had to do all the chopping by hand – had KitchenAid simply forgotten about the mirepoix…?

Others recommended that shoppers simply buy a food processor instead. And more people complained about a lack of storage for their blades!

So back to work they went and promptly produced a complementary KSMFPAEP Accessory Kit which includes:
. Dicing kit consisting of a dicing disc and blade;
. Dicing disc cleaner;
. Storage case for people to store all 6 blades.

KSM2FPA Food Processor with Commercial Style Dicing Kit

And now you would think that these good people could just go and relax, and just move on to the next project – but not so fast! Because someone had a light bulb moment: why not put together the KSM1FPA attachment and the KSMFPAEP Accessory Kit and sell them as a unit?

KSM2FPA Food Processor with Commercial Style Dicing KitThus the KSM2FPA Food Processor with Commercial Style Dicing Kit was born. And this time, they had a winner!!! Whenever you see the word ‘commercial’ as part of a home appliance moniker, you know it means business – and the KSM2FPA did not disappoint.

The KitchenAid KSM2FPA attachment lets you DICE, slice, shred and julienne to your heart’s content, making food prep a cinch. We all know what a thankless task all this prep work is and what a time hog it is. Not anymore! Just get the KSM2FPA KitchenAid stand mixer attachment out, and let it rip…

And the KSM2FPA has got its act together: it likes to be organized and aims to keep it that way, so it comes with its very own accessory case – yessss!

Here’s what you get with the KSM2FPA:

. Dicing kit (dicing disc and blade);
. Slicing disc;
. Shredding disc;
. Julienne disc;
. Storage case.

KSM1FPA vs KSM2FPA

And the self-sufficient KSM2FPA is not only more empowering but also cheaper than buying the KSM1FPA and the KSMFPAEP Accessory Kit separately.

So what’s it to be?

One day I'm gonna make the onions cry...Got a boatload of vegetables to process for the next family reunion? Relax, you’ve got nothing to worry about! That is, unless you want to go head to head with these smart cookies… Didn’t think so. Why bother competing when you know that these food processor attachments can get a job done in minutes that it would take you hours to complete?
So you can spend hours chopping veggies – and yes, that includes onions –for the next backyard party, or simply let the KitchenAid mixer Food Processor attachment take over? Keep your sanity and everyone safe in the process. Time to do your nails AND relax. Actually enjoy the party…
