Works great, but could use some streamlining

I love this thing. It’s more powerful and SO much quieter than my old one. It also feels much sturdier. So far I’ve made incredible hummus and used it to slice/ shred slaw ingredients. A few cons - the snap on lid is MUCH harder to get off than the blender container. The good thing is that I 100% know it’s secure once it snaps on… but kinda hard to get off, and I’m no weakling. Also, I know the little plastic arm on the big pusher is a safety feature, but it makes it impossible to continuously feed in chunks of anything that won’t fit in the small pusher hole for shredding. You have to turn the machine off and reload for every single piece of food you want to shred - quite tedious. Finally, I wish there was more than one speed option, but that’s minor. Just kinda surprised it can’t use the variable speeds of the base, as it seems like that would be a good function for making doughs. All in all very satisfied, but those few issues bring this down to 4 stars for me.

I love this food processor!d I works flawlessly and save me so much prep time. Also a bonus that it doesn't take up space as a full sized counter food processor. This attachment tucks away nicely!

I have the Venturist which I have been enjoying using since the first day I got it. As I was considering which food processor to get, I decided to give the Vitamix food processor attachment a try. I tried it for the first time and have a good impression. It's easy to assemble, dissemble and wash. And I'm happy to know that the pulse function on the Venturist is compatible with it. I tried to make almond meal with raw almonds and it worked wonderfully. I feel that it's very well made and of high quality. I'm looking forward to using it for more recipes.

I just received my ascent series blender which I purchased primarily for smoothies. I sprung for the extra food processor attachment because my old one is so burdensome to pull in and out of the cabinet. I used the processor this morning to slice up veggies for my egg scramble and was so thrilled! Consistently thinly sliced veggies and a breeze to pull out, clean & put away! I am so happy that I chose to get this additional attachment!

Over priced, under designed.

Let's get some pros out of the way. It's built like a tank. Now to the cons - it's the size of a tank. It's bulky, a lot beefier than it needs to be. It's bulkiness does not add to the volume it can process either. One VERY notable issue with this processor - and maybe the deal breaker, is that it doesn't have variable speed. It has 1 speed and that's MAX. The blades spin so fast, even if you try to "pulse" that it basically blends whatever is in there. And as for cheese? Sure it comes with a variety of grating sizes, however the blades move so fast that even if you freeze the cheese it ends up melting and getting stuck in the crevices. Vitamix under-thought this food processor and it shows, and for the price its unacceptable. It either needed to have a variable speed to slow the blade down, or some other clever thing.

It’s a little tough to close and open the lid. The blade is super sharp and would advice caution while handling the discs .

Difficult to use for shredding cheese

3 out of 5 stars
Bluegirl1 - 9 months ago

I brought a vitamix and the 12-cup food processor attachment together as a early Xmas gift to myself. I finally used the food processor today to shred cheese for pimento cheese dip. I was greatly disappointed on how it performed and the overall design itself. I put my cheeses in the freezer to firm up before putting it through the food processor. I had a smaller food processor that no longer worked. It had a longish rectangular opening. Three things I would like to see Vitamix modifying for future production: 1-change the shape for the food pusher from round to square or rectangle. It may work for round vegetables. Cheese do not come in circle shapes except for goat cheese and mozzarella that I can think of. For pimento cheese dip, my cheese are sold in the shape of bricks. So I realized I had to cut them in half. It broke the cheese in misshaped pieces and some got stuck under the snap lid. Which made it stop working immediately after the first pulse. I could not really tell what the problem was except to press on the large pusher harder. 2- I think the gap between the slicing disc and lid may be too wide for shredding cheese properly. Unless I would have to freeze the cheese all the way through? It does makes great long shreds. I had a lot of cheese ‘crumbles’ as well. 3- it is not easy to take the lid off to pick out the broken pieces of cheese off the disc. I can unsnap one side of it with no problem and the other one would not unsnap. I was worried I was going to break the 2nd tab as it takes some effort to take off the lid. I feel part of the problem is having greasy fingers from picking out the cheese. I had to dry my hands with a towel in between. Perhaps you could make the tabs longer so they can be unsnapped easily even with greased hands? Next time I am going to try shredding the cheese on its horizon side using the large food pusher to test this theory. Lastly, Is there a work in process for a smaller version? I think 8 cups would be sufficient for my personal use. I will need to use this in different ways to give it a proper rate.

I bought the attachment and I have only used it a couple times. I don’t love it. I DO love the Vitamix and the blender attachment is probably all I needed because it does so many things. I suggest buying the blender base with the option of adding attachments and then trying the blender. You may find that you don’t need it and it takes up a lot of space in the cupboard.

My recent purchase has shaken up my cooking habits that had become too humdrum. I feel inspired to cook more dishes from scratch, and try more unusual recipes. Overall, a great buy and a marvellously great step towards health in the New Year

Worth it as I learn what it is able to do

I am glad I got it and the base senses it which some reported as an issue. I am still learning to use the blades. The large pusher has to be able to engage at the back for it to work which means constantly having to remove and then realign to use again. It does work very quickly and it also cleans very easily.
