Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The compact KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Food Processor is a great pick for little kitchens, dorm rooms or those who tend to make small portions.
A little powerhouse that doesn't take much space to operate or store.
This 3.5-cup processor is the ideal size for chopping one onion or making small batches of mayo or vinaigrette.

What reviewers didn't like

Because it only comes with one multipurpose chopping blade, you won't be able to slice tomatoes or cucumbers in this model, but we found the lack of attachments made it a breeze to use – plus it ground parmesan cheese and shredded mozzarella as well as many of its full-sized counterparts.
The lid is awkward to take off, put on, and tighten securely.
It’s too small for making bread dough or coleslaw.
