Difference between Cuisinart and KitchenAid
Nowadays, we need all the help we can get with our household chores. With more and more homes now being made up of two working adults, there simply isn't as much time to spend on household chores as we used to have. Thankfully, various devices have been developed to help people deal with these tasks more efficiently, particularly in the kitchen. Two of these devices–Cuisinart and KitchenAid–are compared in this article.
Cuisinart is the brand name of a selection of kitchen appliances. However, the name is most commonly associated with the company’s particular line of food processors. The Cuisinart is in fact one of the first devices of its kind to achieve widespread popularity in the U.S. the company was founded in 1971 by Carl Sontheimer, and it has since grown to become a leading kitchen appliance brand in the country, as well as in Canada.
KitchenAid for its part is a brand of home appliances under the ownership of the Whirlpool Corporation. The company was established by The Hobart Corporation in 1919, in order to provide restaurants with a more practical alternative to common industrial-sized mixers.
Much of Cuisinart's early popularity was the result of glowing endorsements by such notable figures as Julia Child and James Beard, both of who emphasized the value of the device as a means of preparing healthy food quickly. Although Cuisinart products are available in the United Kingdom, they can only be purchased via specialist kitchen retailers. In any case, the Cuisinart brand has since become so popular, that the term is often used in reference to practically any brand of food processor in the U.S.
KitchenAid distinguishes itself from other similar products on the market by its distinctive shape. In fact, this is one of the few products that have been granted a trademark for its design form.
The Cuisinart 14-cup model stands apart from the competition with a user-friendly design, although it does have a few drawbacks. Users often have to pre cut vegetables for instance, and the feed tube is a bit on the short side.
As for KitchenAid, the 12-cup model has been praised for its ability to handle a variety of slicing and chopping tasks efficiently, and its performance is considered by many to be as clean and even as the results of a high-quality knife in the hands of an expert. Furthermore, it does a similar job at a fraction of the time that it would normally take. Other features of the KitchenAid are its compact and easy-to-use design, and despite its features and capabilities, it remains quite simper to operate. Many users also appreciate its low cost and large capacity.
