BENTON HARBOR, Mich.-KitchenAid will introduce three new small appliances geared specifically for the holiday shopping season.

The 13-Cup KitchenAid Food Processor features externally adjustable slicing, thus eliminating the need for stopping the machine, removing the lid and swapping blades between tasks. It also includes specially engineered speeds and a cutting system, which together allow for precise slicing of all ingredients.

Like other KitchenAid Stand Mixers, it has a power hub that accommodates more than a dozen attachments for a number of uses.

The 5-Speed KitchenAid Hand Blender, along with its five speeds, offer accessories that enable the product to blend, puree, crush, chop, froth, beat and mince. It is designed with an interchangeable stainless steel bell-blade assemblies (the industry's first, KitchenAid said) with covers, a BPA-free chopper bowl, a removable pan guard to help protect cookware and a lidded 1-liter blending pitcher.
