Product Review: KitchenAid 12-cup Food Processor
Saying I was excited to receive a Kitchen Aid Food Processor from TAKEALOT is a bit of an understatement. Kitchen Aid is one of the biggest kitchen brands in the world and most (if not all) cooks aspire to owning at least one of their appliances.
Since their re-launch in June 2011 TAKEALOT has grown from strength to strength and continue to forge new paths in the world of online shopping. Forget traffic, lengthy queues and unfriendly shop assistants – browsing and buying online from the comfort of your home takes the stress out of shopping and offers you an easy way to find the products you really want. They’ve recently launched a new Home and Kitchen category which is jam-packed with all the biggest brands in kitchen ware (Kenwood, Kitchen Aid, Aeg, DeLonghi, Morphy Richards, Wiltshire, etc) and includes everything from coffee makers to sandwich presses.
Back to the food processor, I received a giant and incredibly heavy box a few days ago and felt like a kid on Christmas morning opening it. My first impression was how heavy the base for the food processor is which for me, is a good sign, it’s sturdy and strong. The second thing I noticed was how big (and I mean HUGE) the food processor bowl is. With a capacity of 2.7l the options for use is unlimited. I also loved how all the extra parts came in a container which means you can keep everything together. Gone are the days of searching for a grater attachment or mixing paddle.
But over-and-above the good looks and extras, you want a food processor to work. And you want it to work well. I use food processors for almost everything when I cook. Grating, chopping, making pastry, making pesto, juicing citrus, you name it, I do it. I was so delighted to see that this food processor also comes with a beating paddle which can be used to whip cream. Yet another kitchen task that I can delegate to the food processor. But, what about the times you have only one onion to chop? Surely you’re not going to dirty an enormous food processor bowl for that? No worries, Kitchen Aid has that sorted as well. There’s a mini-bowl attachment that fits into the larger bowl with its own little blade attachment which is designed specifically for smaller kitchen tasks. I’m telling you, this food processor is beyond fantastic.
To get your hands on one of these beauties (the PERFECT Christmas gift for a food lover), visit TAKEALOT’s new Home & Kitchen section. And while you’re there, browse around. You won’t be sorry you did!
Disclosure: This is not a paid review, but TAKEALOT did provide me with the Kitchen Aid Food Processor.
