KitchenAid Artisan Cook Processor

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Earlier this week we had the chance to get some hands-on experience with the new KitchenAid Artisan Cook Processor, with Lorraine from KitchenAid popping in to give a demonstration of this new products capabilities.


She also introduced us to the special recipe app that KitchenAid have released – available on both the Apple store and Google Play store – specifically for the Artisan Cook Processor. This app contains a wide range of 116 recipes, with more being added all the time. Edd Kimber (aka ‘The Boy Who Bakes’), winner of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ in 2010, has worked on quite a few of these recipes and they’re all specifically written for the Artisan Cook Processor. The app is really nicely designed, the recipes are filterable and easy to navigate. Lorraine used the steam vegetables with soy sauce recipe. This allowed her to demonstrate a few of the Cook Processor’s many functions. It also allowed us to manually set the time and temperature on the Cook Processor, while also making use of the programmed settings. All these settings are really simple to set – a quick click of a button and a spin of the dial (which was quite fun to use). The preset programmes are accessed through the six buttons on the front of the Cook Processor –  boil, fry, stew, steam, puree, dough.

The recipe from the app was clearly and simply written, even I could follow the instructions! The cook processor chopped and steamed and around 20 minutes later, boom, our steamed vegetables were done. And it was good. The veg was steamed just right and the sauce was delicious.

I was pleasantly surprised by how easy both the cook processor and the app were to use together (I can’t lie I was a bit intimidated by the cook processor to begin with – it looks pretty serious). And it comes with all the accessories you’ll need to get through the recipes – 4.5L stainless steel cooking pot with hinged lid, measuring cup, Multiblade, mini bowl and mini multiblade, upper and lower steamer baskets with lid, dough blade, egg whip & StirAssist. All this and all contructed to KitchenAid’s high quality  

The die cast metal construction is built to last – and the Artisan Cook Processor comes in a choice of six classic KitchenAid colours – almond cream, medallion silver, empire red, onyx black, candy apple, and frosted pearl – so it’ll match the rest of the KitchenAid appliances range perfectly.

Keep an eye on KitchenAid for the rest of 2015, with their Artisan Sparkling Beverage Maker powered by SodaStream set to be released soon. And look out for our next blog post about the KitchenAid Magnetic Drive Blender.

New KitchenAid products now available

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

The day the news came through that there were some new KitchenAid products in the pipeline, we got very excited here in the Go-Electrical office. Then when we got the information through about the new products and saw the photographs, we got even more excited. So you can imagine what kind of state we were in when we were told the expected delivery date of some of these new products – excited doesn’t come close.

We’ve calmed down enough now to tell you all about these great new products, so let’s start with the products that are available to purchase now. Say hello to the KitchenAid Artisan 1.5 litre kettle and the KitchenAid Artisan two-slot toaster.

Designed in the same style as the KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer, the new toasters and kettles have a unique look. Both will be available in six different colours (Empire Red, Onyx Black, Almond Cream, Medallion Silver, Candy Apple and Frosted Pearl) and they are the perfect addition to any stylish home.  The kettles are built with a dual wall construction which means that the water inside stays hotter for longer, that the noise whilst in use is quieter than normal and that the outside of the kettle is cooler to the touch making it safer if children are around.

The best thing about the kettle though is that it can heat water to different temperatures. Select a temperature between 50°C and 100°C (perfect for people who enjoy different blends and types of teas) and then watch the gauge on the outside of the kettle go up. This gauge will work even when the kettle is off its base, so you know whether you need to re-boil it, or not, if you have forgotten someone’s cup of tea.

The two-slot toaster looks brilliant sat next to the kettle, and it doesn’t just look good. This toaster has an automatic inner cage which lowers and lifts the bread/toast, and it has a keep-warm function – we all know how annoying it is when your toast pops and you don’t get to it quick enough for the butter to melt.  The toaster also has seven shade settings so your toast is the perfect shade of golden brown (or dark brown if that’s what you like), and there are LED lights which countdown to when the toast is ready.

If you enjoy eating bagels for breakfast then this toaster is for you, as there is a bagel/bun function which toasts only on one side, but heats the other. There is a function to thaw and toast frozen breads, and there is also a sandwich setting which is used with the included sandwich cage to make great, tasty toasties.

Really, if you need a new matching toaster and kettle then you should seriously consider the KitchenAid Artisan products. Maybe you don’t need these two appliances though – Well don’t worry because as I mentioned to start, there are more new products on the way. New blender, food processor or chopper anyone?

The new KitchenAid Artisan food processors will be available in three sizes – 2.1 litre, 3.1 litre and 4 litre. The 2.1 litre food processor (5KFP0925) will be available in four colours and has been designed with small kitchens in mind. It may be compact, but KitchenAid haven’t compromised on the features. There is the ’ExactSlice’ system which consists of a manually adjustable slicing disc, 3-in-1 wide feed tube, uniquely-designed sharp blades, two speeds and a pulse. Team this with a main 2.1 litre bowl and a 710ml mini-bowl, and you have a brilliantly small, but efficient, food processor.

The 3.1 litre food processor (5KFP1335) will also be available in four colour options, and has the same features as the 2.1 litre, except that the adjustable slicing disc has an external lever so it can be easily adjusted. The standard bowls are 3.1 litre and 950ml capacity.

The 4 litre food processor (5KFP1644) will be available in six colour options and really is a food processor for every task – slicing, cubing, chopping, mixing, whipping and more. It has been awarded the ‘Initiative LifeCare’ award for ‘Kitchen Innovation Product of the Year 2013’. Like the other two models, this food processor features the ‘ExactSlice’ system, but also features the following;

*Die-cast metal body – making it extremely robust and stable

*Induction motor – reliable, powerful and quiet

*Three bowls – 4 litre, 2.4 litre and 1 litre

*Storage case

*Dicing kit – produces perfect cubes of fruit or vegetables.

If a food processor isn’t quite what you are after, then how about the new KitchenAid Chopper (5KFC3515). Available in three colours, this compact appliance is perfect for preparing sauces and dips. Team the 830ml bowl, with one touch operation, two speeds and a ‘liquid adder lid’, and you get a great little appliance perfect for any kitchen.

KitchenAid have long manufactured jug blenders, but here the UK we have always missed out on the hand blenders that the USA has been lucky enough to have. Well now that’s all changed – there is now a cordless handblender which is available with or without accessories (5KHB3583 or 5KHB3581), and a corded 5-speed hand blender (5KHB2571). This corded blender will be available in four colours and comes with three interchangeable bell blades, a 1 litre jug, a chopping bowl, stainless steel arms (20cm and 33cm), whisk attachment and a storage case.

 So, if any of the above sounds interesting, or you are just really nosey and want to see more, then keep an eye on our KitchenAid pages for the arrival of these new products. The two-slice toaster and kettle are already available so get yours now!
