If you’ve ever used a food processor before, you know that while it’s an indispensable kitchen appliance, it can also test your patience. The food processor takes an almost super human level of patience to clean, much a like a blender. You have to carefully scrape the sides and make sure you don’t cut yourself on the blades, not to mention those few seconds when you’re standing in front of it, contemplating how to remove the bowl portion from the body of the processor. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating slightly — it’s not the most difficult kitchen appliance to maneuver, but on those evenings when you need to fix a quick dinner, knowing it will sit in the sink unwashed for at least a full night might deter you from using it. Thankfully, KitchenAid's 7-cup food processor has been designed to incorporate a much simpler, user-friendly design.

The KitchenAid 7-cup food processor boasts a “one-click, twist-free bowl assembly and a latched lid.” That means that you simply pop the bowl off the body of the machine to scoop out the salsa, peanut butter, shredded cheese or guacamole that you’ve whipped up inside (to name just a few of the dishes this nearly all-in-one appliance covers), give it a quick rinse in the sink without worrying about the blades, snap it back into place, and latch the lid on top. Better yet, toss the bowl, lid and accessories in the dishwasher!

One five-star reviewer reports, "Only two attachments, but one is reversible, so it serves as a 2 in 1. It is quiet and easy to clean." Another adds, "It cuts unnecessary wasted time by minutes. I usually hand dice all of my vegetables. Using this makes it so much easier on me and I don't dread getting it done."

Those simplified steps make preparing dinner quicker, less messy and all around more convenient for you, whether you’re planning an elaborate taco night for your whole family, or you just want to make some hummus to accompany a week’s worth of lunches. You don’t have to dread cleaning and disassembling your food processor — meaning you’ll get much more use out of it, and have time to experiment with many more recipes.
