The new Vitamix 12 cup food processor attachment has made it’s way into my kitchen and I couldn’t be happier. It was made to fit on the Vitamix Ascent or Venturist series blender bases. There are so many things about this attachment that I like. We made a short video to show you how it attaches to the blender base and how it works.
The Vitamix Food Processor attachment comes with a 12 cup work bowl, a multi use blade – like an S blade, 2 discs – one for thick slice and large shredding and one for thin slice and small shredding. The discs are stored in their own holder. You are purchasing the attachment only. It works on your Vitamix Ascent or Venturist series blender base.
Everything stacks together so it doesn’t take up a lot of of cupboard space. I like this space saving design. I also enjoy the fact that I am not having to pull out a heavy motor base every time I want to use the food processor. My Vitamix blender lives on the kitchen counter so I only have to get out the work bowl. That is a win – win!
The shredding and slicing discs are stored in their own container. The storage container stacks with the lid and work bowl so storage is so easy.
I made shredded carrots beautifully in just minutes. You can choose small or thick shreds. The slicing disc works equally as well and clean up is a breeze.
My Oil Free Hummus recipe came out creamy and smooth. The Vitamix Food Processor attachment has plenty of power and a large capacity. Great for batch prepping food.
I am all about working smarter not harder in the kitchen.
The Vitamix Food Processor attachment is a well constructed design that is easy to clean. That is huge plus for me, because my Cuisinart Food Processor is very difficult to clean. The fact that the Vitamix food processor is easy to clean causes me to use it far more than my other food processor. It is also lighter weight and easier to get in and out of the cabinet. Everything stacks together so it takes up less space. The multi blade as well as the discs work great.
I have had my Vitamix Food Processor attachment since February and have used it multiple times to make Chocolate Cherry Brownies. I keep these in the freezer for quick and easy desserts.
Oil Free Hummus and this can be made in big batches, then frozen in single size servings using your Souper Cubes. In addition to using as a dip for raw veggies, hummus is delicious on Chopped Salads or in Fresh Spring Rolls or Nori wraps is delicious and filling.
If you haven’t tried this Lentil Loaf with Date Glaze you are missing out on a scrumptious entrée that is perfect for company, freezes well and is sure to delight your family. You can make it quickly in the food processor.
Smokey Black Bean Burgers are so much easier to make in the Vitamix food processor attachment.
Mushroom Spinach Lasagna is a family favorite recipe and the food processor is used to make the most amazing tofu ricotta. I hope you will try this recipe – it is an often requested entrée for family get togethers.
I am very happy with my purchase and highly recommend this product that was purchased with my own money and I was not compensated for this review.

We are also Holland Bowl Mill Affiliates. The 15 inch Holland Bowl Mill Cherry fruit bowl has a permanent home on our kitchen island. It’s beautiful and useful. The heart shaped bowl makes me happy – I love everything heart shaped! We use our 15 inch Beechwood & cherry bowl (his and her’s) to chop our salads everyday. Eating a salad for one meal every day helped me lose weight and become a size 4. I still eat a salad for one meal a day but now it’s a Big Beautiful Chopped salad and it helps me stay a size 4!
