I wanted to upgrade my blender and after a search I opted for the Gordon Ramsey cooks 3 in one blender. What attracted me the blender was that it was a hand blender that had the abilities to chop, blend and whisk. I paid £33.99 for the blender from Argos and thought that it was not a bad price as I got the three functions. The fact Gordon Ramsey's face was on the product also gave me some reassurance as I doubted such a high profile chef would put his name to a poor product.
The blender is actually a thing of beauty (if that is possible). It is made from shiny stainless steel and has a real solid feel about it. The different attachment are all robust and strong and are of a top quality.
The blender has a whopping five different speed settings and if that is not enough there is also a turbo boost which can add a little excitement to your cooking. You get a massive 700 watts of motorised blending at your hands.
The blender is not particularly loud but you are aware of it when switched on, it certainly won't deafen you though.
The chopper comes with a plastic cup that you put the food into then seal over the chopper. This is very powerful and only needs one or two quick goes. If you are looking for big chunks this is not for you as this cuts very finely and quickly.
The blender comes with another cup with a 500ml capacity. It has a great blade which blends away so easily. It is perfect for soup making. Beware that you make get a bit of splash back when using the turbo boost.
The whisk is great for using on eggs and mixes. I have not used this too much but the large, thick metal whisk attachment is easy to use. The whole whisk comes straight off and can go straight into the dishwasher.
It is a great item to have in your kitchen. The blender is amazing. The only problem is that you get a few splashes where the machine is so powerful.
I do believe that most of us have dreamed about being victorious in the flames of Hell`s Kitchen, standing there ever so calmly as Mr. Gordon Ramsay tells us to f*** off or something of the sort, then to win a restaurant in Las Vegas, the Antarctica or in the most charming corner of Paris, Rome or Venice... Ramsay is a brilliant bloke, and therefore I never doubted his three in one hand blender to be nothing but brilliant, which thankfully it kind of is!
With this kitchen gadget, you can blend, whisk and chop away, all features done with ease and no difficulty, not yet anyway! There are five different speed variations to choose from, including a turbo version if you should want such a thing... The chopper is really good for chopping vegetables, and I have used it many a time for when making soups and such, the blender chopping everything from carrots to onions and vegetables of all sorts and varieties! The blender itself has a 500 ml capacity which makes it brilliant for making large portions of soups and drinks and purees and whatnot, even milkshakes and smoothies if you so desire! The whisk is purely brilliant and of obvious sturdy and solid quality, it really gets the job done in a blast of a second!
The look and design of these products are in pitch black, which makes them look modern and brand new at all times, and from the master of Hell`s Kitchen, I expected superb quality and was given just that!
With no complaints to utter, I recommend this 3 in 1 purchase without hesitation.
When my cousin was having a curry evening I rather foolishly said I would make 3 different curries from my book "The Takeaway Secret". Each curry requires you to chop 2 pounds of onions to make the base sauce and I was planning on making double portions so that meant an awful lot of onions to chop. I had been meaning to buy myself a decent blender of some description so took the opportunity to go out and buy one. The Gordon Ramsey cooks 3 in one blender cost me £35 from Argos making these curries the most expensive I have ever made.
As you might have guessed from the name, this is a hand blender with three different functions allowing you to chop, blend and whisk. The quality of the tool is apparent as soon as you take it out of the box, the body of the blender is made of stainless steel and the attachments are all of a good quality too. Each attachment can be used on one of 5 different speed settings and there is also the option of a turbo boost.
The first attachment is the chopper and this can only be used with the attached beaker which has a fairly small capacity. The lid of the beaker does not seal at all so if you put liquids in here they splash all over the place as soon as you turn the motor on. I actually found the chopper to be far too powerful, even a couple of quick blasts at the lowest power setting will chop things like carrots down to tiny shards which are too small for even coleslaw. It was great for chopping onions really small for a sauce and I probably managed to chop about 4 onions at a time.
The second attachment is the blender and this is brilliant. The large stainless steel blade is very sharp and it makes smoothies from frozen fruits extremely quickly. It is excellent for making milkshakes and the fact it is metal means it can be used in hot soups. It is easily the best hand blender I have ever used. It is meant to have an anti-spatter guard but it still spatters food about if you use it in a shallow container. The supplied blending beaker has a 500ml capacity and is made of plastic so is not brilliant, a glass beaker would have been better.
The whisk attachment is a standard metal balloon whisk and it works really well to whip up cream, egg whites or anything else of your choosing. The whisk itself comes right out of its attachment for easy cleaning.
I like Gordon Ramsey but I am generally not a fan of celebrity chefs branching out into flogging stuff as it is generally overpriced and not very good but I am reasonably happy with the 3 in one handblender. It is a high quality kitchen appliance which is easy to hold and use, the problem being the 700w motor is too powerful to chop things into larger pieces. The liquidiser and whisk are brilliant, whether or not to buy it depends on what you want to use it for.
