/PRNewswire/ -- KitchenAid is once again shaking up the food processor category with a new product introduction at the International Home + Housewares Show, this time debuting the industry's first residential food processor with an unassisted cubing function. Using a hands-free, commercial-style dicing attachment, the new 16-cup Pro Line
Series food processor first slices, then cubes foods to create a precise 8mm brunoise dice without the need to manually push foods through its feed tube.
This innovation joins the ExactSlice™ system, another exclusive feature KitchenAid introduced in the food processor category at the 2011 Housewares Show. ExactSlice™ is the first slicing system to use an exterior lever for adjusting slicing thickness without changing blades and has been incorporated into the new 16-cup model.
"The food processor has always been a versatile kitchen appliance, but with the addition of these innovations, there are so many more things it can do and make," said
, senior manager of brand experience for KitchenAid. "Until now, dicing ingredients required lots of time, effort and skill with a knife, but this new model makes it fast and easy to create a perfect dice for salsas, soups and many other dishes."
The new model incorporates a sturdy die-case base, 3-in-1 Ultra Wide Mouth™ feed tube, an Ultra Tight silicone seal between bowl and lid, and soft grip handles. Additional features include a 4-cup mini bowl with S blade, 10-cup prep bowl, dual shredding disc, a large S blade, dough blade, spatula and storage case.
