Too many chefs spoil the broth!

This is an example of what my food processor does.

it is the Kenwood FP407

use this as a benchmark when choosing said product.


Lets give you a run down of the features of my food processor.

Standard features include a blender and a clear Acrylic multi-purpose bowl.


Can be used for:

Mixing drinks.

Milk shakes

Ice cream shakes

Blending fruit drinks

Penne Arrabiata(Hot Italian chilli dish, think that’s how you spell it!)

Mushing Christmas dinner for guests with no teeth(seriously, you had to be there!)

Sauce making i.e. Salsa

Home made baby foods

And my favourite use; I buy dried birds eye chilli’s and blend them into a fine textured powder, this is then used to sprinkle on pizzas and add to hot foods, such as curry’s.

Clear Acrylic multi purpose bowl.

This is used mainly to house accessories in use as follows

Grater fine; for things like carrots, cheese and celery etc.

Grater course; for potatoes and other more firm vegetables that you may have to grate occasionally.(I grate potatoes to make my own birds nest’s for Chinese meals)

Slicer; this is used to slice!….cucumber, lettuce, mushrooms and all vegetables.

Chopper; this chops! Can be used to chop meat up to make a fresh mince.

Also for pummelling any product that can be shaped or pulped.

Now the Kenwood FP470 has various speeds, and if you are very careful, you can even use the blender to mush ice.

There is a safety button built in for hands free use.

You simply press the on button down, slide the lever across and this will keep the on button down.

To release this button, you simply depress the on switch and it slides back out.

This is a must if you are slow blending a recipe or if you are kneading bread, another utensil that is supplied with this product.

The chopping blades are extremely sharp and are a definite keep away from children item.

I would even go to say that when new, they would slice to the bone in seconds.

I have never used the bread making attachments yet, and I doubt I ever will, as baking is not one of my hottest skills, so I will not comment on this too much.

You also get a spatula, which, believe it or not, is patented, as it is flexible, allowing you to scrape out all the food products from the bowl.

This gadget proved invaluable a few Christmas’s ago when I had to cook for 8 people, one a vegetarian, one with no teeth and the rest were just family!

Every kitchen must have one of these, and at around £60 a shot, good value.

Just a tip though. Leave it on top of a worktop, or it will never come out the cupboard.

Happy cooking

Angus the slightly dressed chef!
