Best Food Processor?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Lock up yer chickens! DC's venturing into kitchen territory.

    I've just splashed out 95 quid on a Kenwood Multi Pro FP920 Kenwood - Food Processor Kenwood FP920 simply because it had 34 functions and I reckon I could make more stuff with it, or they may just be for decoration.

    I must confess I'm fairly new to this lark, up until a few weeks ago I knew how to order a pizza and make a bad cup of tea, but now I can boast of cooking pizza from scratch, as well as bread and pancakes, and I don't use any flour either! I've had to start dabbling with cookery as I suffer a bit from Ulcerative Colitis (which has also unfortunately wrecked my military ambitions) and in the meantime I'm having to drastically change my diet and cook everything I eat to get rid of the crappy additives you get from supermarkets, hence my investment in the food processor.

    So, did I get a good buy? A bit late now to change it I spose, are there any better makes on the market? I've also brought a yoghurt maker which should be interesting.

    I shall be perusing the Cookery section for a bit in order to get more tips and hopefully learn a few things.

    Cranberries in the blender with yoghurt should help with the thrush......

  5. Maybe you should have shopped around then bought a Kenwood Chef Major Titanium KM023 - now that is a piece of kit. Only 950Euros, mind you it does have a 2 horsepower electric motor and lots of attachments including juicers, food processors, slicer and shredder, mincer, ice-cream maker!!!
  6. The best food processor I've found is me Mum! It'll chop,shred,slice and dice,juice etc. Doesn't cost **** all to run and is voice operated :)

  7. Kitchen Aid Artisan,end of!

    Don't ever drop it on your foot.:shock:
  8. You mean you've just got the bog standard,haven't been on ebay,to get all the bells,and whistles cheap,from the US,just mixing,and grinding,tut,tut! :)
  9. My mum had a series of Kenwood Chefs, but when I went to look at a modern standard version for my wife, I found that they'd become very plasticky and fragile. Consequently, we bought a Chef Major Titanium. Its a heck of a beast: at least twice the weight of a standard version, and incredibly powerful. When you make a full bowl of bread dough, its beats the sh*t out of it in about five seconds flat. It really is a "professional" bit of kitchen equipment - probably enough for a small restaurant or bakery production line.
  10. All these machines are puff stuff, my missus has broken them all: Kitchen Aid, Kenwood Chef, Braun, Magimix, the lot. They are as dust beneath her chariot wheels, not one of them lasted longer than six months.

    Finally I got her a Robot-Coupé processor and a secondhand Hobart N-50 mixer, she's had them four years and not broken them even a bit. If they're proof against my missus they can survive anything.
  11. Concur 4t. Plan to whack some sausage with mine some day.

    Doing it with a finger or two,eyes scrunched a bit near the screen, trying to make sure I don't make a mess or mistake in the process.

    Fnar. The Kenwood Chef. Happy memories of back when we setup our first money-earning website. I would link you but it would cause a fuss with my Moderators. ******* Machines, eh? Happy juicing.
  13. I much prefer this food processor:


    And, if you are lucky, she might even pack the dishwasher for you...

    Lits :)

  15. Hah - disproved that one! Bought one for Mrs GB a few years back and, within a couple of years, the "grip-it" type heavy plastic wossname which holds the various bits in place decomposed and the whole machine is now useless. Still trying to get it repaired and/or replaced.
