Review: Kitchen Aid 12-cup Food Processor (KFP760, KFP770)

ka760intro1cropOur review of the Kitchen Aid 12-cup food processor with wide mouth feed tube is now available.

Summary
A Fully Featured, Solid Performer for Under $200

The KitchenAid KFP760 comes with a generous array of components and performed very well in most of our tests.  Available for under $200, we believe it offers many users an outstanding value. On the negative side, aside from some minor performance issues, our biggest problems with the model related to its design; notably poor liquid handling and some issues with its “Ultra Wide Mouth” feed tube.  We weren’t crazy about the one year parts warranty either.

    Dough…I’m unfamiliar with making pie and pizza dough. How would you expect the machine will perform with whole wheat dough (are pizza and pie dough similar)?

    Hi Bennett,
    Pizza a pie dough are quite different in that pie dough incorporates chilled butter into the flour whereas pizza dough is a simple yeast dough. Neither is a particularly demanding task for a FP, and substituting wheat flour for all-purpose or bread flour won’t pose a problem. We haven’t tried this one yet, but I came across a recipe on King Arthur Flour’s site that features their White Whole Wheat Flour. We will surely give it a try, but let us know if you do first.
