I love to cook and bake, but sometimes I don’t like how long it can all take. So if there are any kitchen gadgets that speed up the time it all takes, then I’m all for it! I have wanted a food processor for a while now, as I follow a lot of recipes that need you to use one for dry ingredients, rather than a blender. So it was well timed when I was sent the hand blender from Savisto.
First of all, I love how many different accessories it comes with. It can be used in the traditional stick blender way. Plus it comes with a tall 800ml beaker for you to use it with. Second, you can add a whisk attachment for things like eggs. And finally, and most excitedly for me, it comes with a food processor attachment. For the price of £35.99 I think it is total value for money to get a 3-in-1 blender like this.
The second thing that struck me was just how good it looks. It comes in two colours; black or red. I have the red one and I think it looks so stylish. It looks expensive with a matte finish on most of the pieces. There are stylish stainless steel sections too. It just looks good in your kitchen, especially compared to other hand blenders I have used before.
It has five speed settings on the hand blender, as well as a turbo setting, which is unusual for most blenders like this that I have used. Normally they just come with an on/off switch and that is it. So this is a definite bonus, especially when using the whisk and food processor components. It is really simple to use and found it to work really well. I have mainly been using the food processor component and it grinds up nuts in an instant, as well as things like dates and chickpeas. So I’ve got no excuses for not making my own hummus now!
I honestly can’t think of anything negative to this product. I have loved using it and it is something that I think pretty much any household will get plenty of use out of. You can use the stick component to mix batters, make smoothies, soups and drinks. The whisk is great for whisking eggs or when baking. The food processor would be tricky to make your own flours with (almond or rice flour for example) as it doesn’t grind dry things up super fine. Though it does grind nuts up to a fairly fine consistency. It does blend softer things really well, like vegetables, for example.
I found that it is fairly quiet to use which is a nice feature. It also comes with a two year gurantee, which is great – a lot can happen in two years, right?
What do you think to this? Do you think you would ever make use of one at home? I’d love to hear what you think?
