Cooking from scratch just became a bit easier! I was sent a Food Processor from Kalorik to review,and just look at all the goodies it came with!
A few year back I had purchased my first food processor, it did everything I thought it needed to: it chopped, shredded and sliced – what else did I need it to do? I had no idea there were so many options in a food processor or that they could do so many things!
When the Kalorik Food Processor arrived I took all of the parts out and washed them. As I unpacked them I kept thinking – “another?” My
old one only had the bowl, one disk and the chopping blades. I was confused and a bit puzzled by all of the options with the Kalorik Food Processor.
The first major difference I found was the discs they were more wedges that snapped onto a rotating disk. You have your standard shred and slice options but you even have one to make fries (woohoo!). I like the versatility of the cutting options, they are much easier to keep track of and much easier to clean!
The Food Processor also comes with a juicer option (no need for a separate contraption for that) that has a basket to catch any seeds and pulp, a blade for kneading dough, stainless steal chopping blades, and an emulsifying disk for whipping and whisking. With the extensions you can chop, shred, grade, whip, mash, whisk and a whole lot more!
Now, there were a couple things I really liked about the Kalorik Food Processor. The first – it has suction cup feet. I know, that’s not a big feature, but I’ve never had that before. It helps secure the unit to your counter if it really gets mixing!
The second feature I really like – the double safety locks. Most newer food processors will not work until the base and the lid are locked on properly. This prevents little (and big) hands from getting hurt if the unit was engaged while reaching in. It’s a great safety feature to have – even if it can be frustrating to make sure everything is in position. This is where Kalorik did it right – the bowl only locks into one position, unlike other models where it can fit on multiple ways and be considered lock. For the base part of the unit it clicks in where the black button is.
The lid has a similar locking feature, remember both must be engaged for it to work. The handle actually has a place where a part of the base slides in and it locks. The handle will always be on the right hand side when it properly secured.
The bowl overall holds 8 cups! That’s big enough to make a great side dish, or a dessert filling. I can’t wait to try it out to make my coleslaw recipe, it will hold a lot more than my last model will.
I really enjoy working with the Kalorik Food Processor. While the options were a bit overwhelming at first, I love the flexibility of the options I have with it. It isn’t an appliance that will only do one thing and be put away – that’s the best kind to have!
My favorite option? The Fries disc! I can quickly and easily make fries to go with burgers at home. I just toss them with a little oil and salt and bake them while I make the burgers! So simple and something I would have never done before.
I can’t wait to use it this holiday season to prep the holiday meal and desserts. I think the emulsion disc will be great for my peppermint patty fillings!
