When the lovely people at Tesco Direct asked if I’d like to review and run a competition with my choice of small kitchen appliances there was no holding me back!
First I chose the Tricity TFSSHB12 Hand Blender which retails at £9.50 and even comes with a jug. For the money I think this is an absolute steal as it whizzed up my soup perfectly and even has a pretty blue led around the power button. There are 2 speed settings but I didn’t actually notice any difference between them. The jug is useful for blending smoothies and milkshakes. My only negative is that it is quite heavy but you can rest the blender on the bottom of your pan and tilt to blend your soup etc. I do think a stainless steel hand blender is a kitchen essential as you don’t have to wait for your hot soup etc to cool down before blending. With this device in your cupboard you need never buy ready made soup again!
The next item I chose was the James Martin Grinder ZX595 by Wahl which retails at £18 as I’ve never owned such a gadget of a pestal and mortar! This grinder can be used not only for spices and coffee but I used it to make my own ground rice and oatmeal. So I think this is a cool gadget for saving you money too as you can stretch your kitchen staples even further! Its only drawback was that it wasn’t that easy to get the lid off so wouldn’t be suitable for anyone with arthritis etc.
The last item I chose was the Eddingtons Mincer Pro which retails at £27.99. I have been looking for a suitable mincer for ages and I have to say I love this one. There’s no clamping it to the worktop like some mincers, just a turn of a small lever activates a suction cup in the base to adhere to your work surface. I tested out the mincer with some fresh frying steak to make burgers which worked a treat and I even passed the onion through the mincer too! It’s nice to know what’s in your mince or burgers. My main plan for this mincer though is for using up leftover roasted meat to make up things like rissoles, pies and pasties etc. There’s even a sausage making attachment for the more adventurous!
