Baked Mozzarella Potatoes

My love for KitchenAid Products isn’t really a secret, and I’m sure my kitchen isn’t the only one with their appliances in matching colors – I love black, but dream to venture out into the colors one day!  I like to purchase brands I trust and use regularly without issues.  Customer service is also a big factor in the brands I choose.  I’m so excited to share my review of KitchenAid 13-Cup Food Processor with ExactSlice™ System  with you.  Not only am I proud to now own a food processor but I really don’t have to worry about another mandoline accident.  If you’re new here, let me explain..  Back in April I was using a mandoline slicer to slice some potatoes.  Not only did I struggle to get the potato into the “safety guard” but the potato wasn’t really slicing.  That’s when I pushed a little harder, which then made the potato slip, my hand slip, and poof goes half my fingertip.  The ER said they see at least 4-5 mandoline accidents per day.  I was the 4th that day.

My husband never wanted another big appliance and that’s why he bought me the mandoline.  It looked great on TV.. the reviews that I read were all pleasant.  It wasn’t until I took off my fingertip and nail-bed that I actually read more reviews… like this one. “I have been wanting this type of item for awhile to make scalloped potatoes. It works great! Took off the top (and I do mean the top NOT the tip!!) of my thumbnail. OUCH!!!! The holder thingy didn’t work too great on a potato. I’m now terrified to use them again. They will likely end up in the donation bag but they do work wonderfully…..”  Now if I had only read that review!  Now my finger is almost back to normal appearance wise, but the nerves are still extremely sensitive.  Touching things can be just as painful as the incident itself..

It may be cheaper to go with a mandoline at first, but in all honesty Food Processors are safer and much more functional than a mandoline.  I’m thrilled with the performance of KitchenAid 13-Cup Food Processor with ExactSlice™ System.  Not only is it safer, it actually has the level of thickness on the base.  Meaning I don’t have to fiddle with the blades at all.  It also comes with a 4 cup work bowl so that you’re doing a smaller portion you don’t have to use the 13 cup bowl.  Unlike other processors I’ve seen this one has a Ultra-Wide feed tube, with a 3-1 pusher.  I love the small pusher which is designed for small amounts of liquid to slowly drizzle in.  I also love that it has a off, high, low, and pulse button.  I think pulse and I will be the best of friends!

The KitchenAid 13-Cup Food Processor with ExactSlice™ System includes a BPA Free 13 Cup Work Bowl, a BPA Free 4 Cup work Bowl, a Bowl Scraper/Spatula,  a Stainless Steel Multipurpose Blade, Mini-Blade, Dough Blade, Slicing Disk, and a Shredding Disk which is reversible.  All of those aside from the work bowls fit into the included Chef’s Accessory Case, which is also included!

It slices, chops, shreds, purees, minces, kneads, whips, mixes, julienes, what more could you ask for?  My crazy mandoline didn’t come close to the performance of the KitchenAid Food Processor!  Oh, and did I mention  it’s dishwasher safe?

In the coming weeks I plan to show you many ways to use this food processor, but first things first.  I want to show you the recipe I was trying to make before I ended up in the ER and eating a frozen dinner since I got home by midnight.

To set-up the Slicing Disk connect the Drive Adapter and the Slicing Adapter then place them into the Slicing Disk.

Baked Mozzarella Potatoes
Serves 6

3 Idaho Potatoes
6 oz Fresh Mozzarella
3-4 Tablespoons Butter
1 Teaspoon Dried Parsley
1 1/2 Tablespoon Garlic Salt
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Preheat oven to 350.
Wash and dry the potatoes, cut in half and place into food processor feed tube.


Using  the Slicer blade, slice the potatoes thin using the pulse button. Set aside

Now using the shredding disk, shred the fresh mozzarella.

In 6 small ramekins spread the potatoes in a circular pattern until the ramekin is 1/3 full, then sprinkle mozzarella and a thin sliver of butter.


Repeat potatoes, butter, and add seasonings.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until potatoes are slightly golden.

You could serve in the ramekin or place onto a plate by sliding a butter knife around the edges and using a fork or spoon to scoop out.  Perfect side to any meal.

    Those potatoes look awesome and that Kitchen Aid food processer looks awesome also. We have a Kitchenaid Mixer that we have has for 10 years and it still works like a champ. Thanks for sharing.

  2. says

    Like you, I’m a diehard KitchenAid fan. I love this machine, and I’m gonna look into it further, if for no other reason than I want to make those potatoes! :)

  3. says

    Those potatoes look amazing – the slicing is so precise on the food processor! Can’t wait to hear more of what you do with those KitchenAids!!

  4. says

    That food processor looks amazing!!!! I’ve had to take back every one I’ve ever gotten because it would break right after I got it.

    Those potatoes look super yummy too!

    I don’t really see shat’s different between that and the previous model 12 c food processor with the wide-mouth chute, 4 c bowl, etc.

  6. says

    Anonymous – The main difference is that this is the ExactSlice System. The unit has a lever on the base to determine the thickness of the slice. Hope that helps. :-)

  7. says

    Oh my, that looks delicious! Now I want potatoes for breakfast. 😉 What an awesome job it did thinly slicing the potatoes. Food processors are so fabulous!

  8. says

    Does it vibrate and move on the counter when chopping heavier type foods like hard cheese or making dough?
    Is the chopping blade too small for the size of the bowl.
    Do you find any parts hard to clean
    Does the slicer actually give you different thickness
    Is the motor quiet or does it have a high pitch
    Your answers are greatly appreciated

    Ok, super duper jealous. I’ve been coveting one of these processors for some time now! I love the feature of being able to select the thickness. I need to ask, can it get skinny enough to do potato chips? I have a dreaded mandolin as well, but it doesn’t get as skinny as I’d like it to.

  10. says

    loved your review & was so happy to find it in my google search on this specific food processor…we went out and bought one today after reading your post. so far so good! can’t imagine all the time we are about to save in the kitchen! thanks!

    THANK YOU for the photos you did of putting the slicing disc on. I could not figure out how to do this — the manual did not help at all. I had been able to use the disc, but it mangled everything — everything was in huge chunks — and wobbled while in use. I was just about to return it when I found your website and saw how the three components go together to attach the disc. I am pretty sure this will work now, since using only that drive adaptor with the silver tip and the cloverleaf shaped component sure didn’t do anything. They should write manuals for half blind old ladies like me — or they should let YOU write the instructions so I won’t cut my hand off. BTW, I also had a disaster with a mandolin — cut my pinky through to the bone and it took four months to heal due to medications I am on that make me bleed freely. You are a lifesaver, hon! Bless you.
