All in all I’m very satisfied with my Kenwood food processor and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a high quality food processor at a reasonable price.

A Safe and Easy to Use Food Processor

Kenwood is a well-known kitchen appliances brand, which was founded by Kenneth Wood in 1947. Its products include kitchen machines, food processors, blenders, kettles, toasters and coffee makers, etc. The one I’m writing about is a food processor made by Kenwood, given the full name, Kenwood FP731 Multi Pro Food Processor.

Packaging:

To avoid any damages in delivery Kenwood FP731 Multi Pro Food Processor is double packed in big recycled boxes. It’s not easy to open. There is a picture of the food processor on the front box. Inside the box there are a food processor set, attachments, a product list and a cooking guide written by Becky Johnson.

Main Features:

There are two kinds of attachments inside the box. One is the basic attachments, which come as standard with all Kenwood food processors. They are a knife blade and a thick disc. The knife blade can be used for mixing, chopping, mincing, pureeing and rubbing in; the thick disc is a reversible disc with slicing on one side and shredding on the other. It can be used for slicing vegetables and shredding and grating a wide range of foods. The optional attachments are explained below.

Dough doll is used to mix and knead yeasted recipes; Twin beater geared whisk is used to whisk egg whites, whip cream and whisk eggs and sugar for fatless sponges; Maxi-blend canopy is used in conjunction with the knife blade to blend soups; Thin slicing shredding disc is used for slicing vegetables finely and grating crisp fruit, vegetables and cheese; Standard chipper disc is used for making continental-style chips from potatoes or other root vegetables; Fine chipper disc is used for super-slim French fries or fine strips of root or other crisp vegetables; Extra-coarse shredding disc is used for grating vegetables and fruit really coarsely for salads, you can also use it for grating cheese; Liquidiser is for blending soups and sauces, making smoothes, milkshakes, cocktails and purees; Multi-mill is used for making baby or small quantities of purees, grinding coffee beans and spices, and chopping herbs and nuts; Mini-processor bowl is used for making baby food, sauces or small quantities of purees and chopping herbs and nuts.

Price and Availability:

In the UK you can buy Kenwood FP731 Multi Pro Food Processor from many retailers including Amazon, PC World, Currys, just to name a few. You will find prices vary considerably. As a guide the current price is £69.04 at Amazon UK website.

My experience:

I bought my Kenwood FP731 Multi Pro Food Processor on February 2012 on Amazon UK website and I paid £64.99. Now I have been using the food processor for over six months and it is my first Kenwood product. I’m very satisfied with the performance of my food processor.

My first impression of this machine is that it is well made. It looks quite attractive with the white processor set and light grey container. The bowl and the attachments are plastic but not fragile for careful use. Before I bought the machines I had read some reviews on Amazon websites, from which I learnt how to assemble them. So it took me little time to get started. Bear in mind you must be sure that the bowl is turned completely to the right. You can hear a click when it’s locking into place.

I want to say the food processor can do many kitchen works. It made my cooking more creative and more enjoyable. My expectation was to use the machine for Chinese dumplings because I don’t want to spend time to chop the ingredients. However I did worry if the western tool can do eastern meal. Surprisingly it did a perfect job for my dumplings, maybe I should say, even better than I can do. I even used the machine for mixing a heavy cake for the first time in my life, which I never thought I can do. Now I have used it regularly for dumplings, cakes, drinks and breads, and I have found it superb for every task.

Last but not least I would like to say it’s easy to use and even better, easy to clean. Although I have to say it does create some clean tasks after using it. However compared to the time saving the clean time doesn’t count. The only downside to me is where to put them afterwards. It does take some spaces in the cupboard.

Conclusion:

All in all I’m very satisfied with my Kenwood food processor and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a high quality food processor at a reasonable price.

I have bought food choppers, mixers, blenders and not got along with any on them. Thanks for this helpful information, Blossom.

I've thought about getting a food processor but have always held back because I felt I didn't need the dough processor (I don't bake my own bread). I didn't know you could use them for mixing cakes.
