2. Attach the Work Bowl
This is the clear plastic container that attaches to your food processor base. They come in various sizes, depending on the capacity of your food processor. KitchenAid brand makes models varying from 3.5 or 5-cup food choppers, 7-cup, 9-cup and 13-cup food processors and the Pro Line® larger capacity models.
The KitchenAid® 7, 9 and 13-cup food processors feature work bowls and latched lids that click into place for easy, twist-free assembly. Your food processor will not operate if the work bowl is not attached correctly and fully locked in place.
If you have an older KitchenAid® model, you’ll need to line up your bowl at about 90 degrees from the insertion point, then twist it until it drops onto the base and locks into place.
If you’re ready to upgrade to innovative new designs for easier setup, there are many models of KitchenAid® food processors for you to choose from.
