Kenwood FP730 Multi Pro
Advantages: Lots of extras that will get used
Disadvantages: Short cord
My Mum bought me the Kenwood Multip Pro FP730 series for christmas and I'm glad she did. I had been looking for a while and could not make up my mind.
I comes with a range of great features and can be used as a chopper, liquidiser, blender, and general all round food processor. At first I found it a bit overwhelming as previuosly I had a bog standard blender with no fancy attachments, so looking at all the extra bits that came with the Kenwood pro I was not sure where to start. The unit was supplied with the following:
Knife blade/dough tool
twin beater gear whisk
maxi blender canopy with slicing, shredding, and cutting discs
bowl, liquidiser, lid and pushers
The unit itself has a useful power storage cord fixing at the back, but as with most of my kitchen electricals the cord is on the short side. There is a dial on the front that turns on the processor and it has a range of speeds, there is also a pulsing action, if the dial is turned in the opposite direction. It has a 3 litre capacity.
The instruction manual is good, explaining each tool and how things work, with handy diagrams and numbering. In addition there a a few recipes at the back including shortcrust pastry and a victoria sponge
I started by using the shredding blade, I set out the base unit, which is sturdy and has spongy bits on the bottom to prevent it slipping. Then I fixed the large bowl onto the detachable drive shaft, followed by the smaller bowl and the shredding blade, the lid is then but place and I was ready to go. I tried leeks first, I pushed them through the top with the handy pushing tool and within seconds they were done. The rest of the unit remains pretty clean.
My next use involved roasted butternut squash soup using the liquidiser and this turned out really well, the blades are sharpe and easily do the job.
I have also used the mill tool, to blend spices, mainly fennel, coriander, cumin (seeds) and star anise, again this was done well.
I have yet to use the citrus juicer or the dough tool,which can be used to make bread and cakes but I tend to make bread and cakes by hand, but the processor would probably save me some time, so its next on my list of tools to use.
All of the it can go in the dishwasher, though I wash them by hand as I do not have one. As there are so many bits to the processor they pretty much all fit inside one another for ease of storage, though overall it still takes up quiet alot of cupboard space.
I'm not sure how much it cost, but its a great additional to my kitchen and I would recommend to others
Summary: Useful tool that will have you time and effort
