CHICAGO, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- KitchenAid is debuting a new compact food processor at this week's International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago. Featuring a 3.5-cup capacity, the new KitchenAid mini food processor was designed to simplify smaller chopping, mixing and pureeing tasks for daily meal preparation.
"Whether looking to eat healthier, be more creative in the kitchen, or just save time, the new mini food processor significantly streamlines the process of preparing food," said Beth Robinson, senior manager of brand experience for KitchenAid. "Its compact size makes an already useful and versatile tool even more convenient for everyday cooking."
Compact and lightweight, the mini food processor's size makes it an easy and accessible "go to" tool for quickly chopping ingredients, preparing dressings or making sauces. Two speeds and a pulse operation provide precise control to produce coarse or fine results for everything from chopping nuts to making creamy, homemade hummus. The uniquely designed stainless steel blade precisely chops and purees, and locks in place for convenient pouring. The easy to clean work bowl, lid, and blade are all dishwasher safe.
The mini food processor will be available in a range of new colors including Twilight Blue, Hot Sauce, White, Onyx Black, Contour Silver, Ice, Liquid Graphite, Cocoa Silver, Boysenberry, Green Apple, Watermelon, Majestic Yellow, Empire Red, Tangerine, and Pink. Available in September, the new 3.5-cup model will carry a suggested retail price of $49.99
