What's happening guys? Another Sunday afternoon has come round again, it gets to this point so quickly doesn't it?!
Today I am here to inform you all about the "Kenwood Compact CH108A Mini Chopper", what it does, how it works and what I think of it!
So what brought me to this purchase? As you may know from reading my previous posts or my ‘about me’ page, I am a keen baker, and I am always looking for new devices to aid me in my cooking missions! We used to have a huge kenwood mixer, but it was rather old and unfortunately stopped working, so it had to go! Now, I didn’t have (and still don’t!) have the funds to replace the large one, as they are much more expensive, but I did have £19.99 to spare to buy this (link to site)and boy oh boy am I glad I did!
The ‘Experts’ Product Specification:
- Made from plastic
- 300 watts.
- It has a 0.35 litre container.
- It has removable stainless steel blades.
- Parts are dishwasher safe.
- It has a safety locking lid – if the lid isn’t locked, it won’t start!
- It has a non slip base.
So What Can You Use It For?
- Crushing digestive biscuits for a cheesecake base.
- Blitzing bread to crumbs for a treacle tart.
- Crushing nuts (as my pictures will later show).
- Making cake into crumbs for cake pops.
- Making salad dressing.
- Cutting up onions.
- And many more things!
- It is affordable being £19.99 at Argos (link is above).
- It is small, it doesn't take much space up in your cupboard or on your kitchen top if you decide to keep it out.
- It is easy to use - you don't have to spend hours going through instruction manuals before you use it.
- It does the job of a large mixer, the only difference being it's size, for example, instead of putting a whole 8 inch cake in, you may only be able to put a quarter in at a time.
- It is easy to clean, wash and piece together.
- When you mix it is very loud, and you do have to keep your finger on the 'on' button, or else it will not mix!
One bit of advice I would say though, is personally I wouldn’t mix a baking things with cooking things. This may just be my personal preference, but with how strong garlic and onions are, I wouldn’t want to blitz a cake in it afterwards because of any potential lingering onion odor!
