High Quality Kitchen Kit!,
This review is from: Sage by Heston Blumenthal the All In One Control Grip, 700 Watt, White (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been on the look out for a stick blender for a while so I as delighted to get the chance to review this "Control Grip", especially since I'm a big fan of Heston too. Quite often when a top chef puts his name to something the actual product is disappointing, hence the need for celeb backing in the first place. Thankfully though, this blender / chopper / processor / whisker and masher is pure quality.
The kit arrives in a large, well packed box which contains :
The handheld "stick" mixer
A whisk attachment
A mashing attachment
A top quality processing bowl/tub
Blades for the above for slicing, shredding and processing!
A full instruction booklet including handy guides on chopping, mashing etc the most common items
The hand held stick itself is light and easy to use, but not so light as to question it's quality. There's plenty of mains cord and thankfully it doesn't get in the way.
The rest of the product is the quality you'd expect with something with Heston's name on it. The slicer has a selection of settings so you can slice to your own thickness requirement, the masher powers through anything you mash with it, the chopper scythes through vegetables like they're not there, and the blender blends with aplomb. Seriously, everything you want this to do, it does and does well.
My only slight criticism of this package would be the footprint or storage space it needs. Inconsequentially picky there though, a beyond minor reservation!
To summarise, I don't know how we ever did without this excellent item. It's worth every penny of it's price and earns the reputation for quality that it's famous patron shares.
