Tefal Kitchen Machine Compact, Impressions of mixer

Stand Mixers
1

A solid piece of equiment for newcomers or an further for skilled bakers. The tefal kitchen compact is a properly intended. It life up to the description of getting compact and does not take up a massive amount of area on your counter. Compared with mixers made with a removable hand device this is modelled on bigger models and has a single beater, whisk or dough hook attachment not double ones and offers superior mixing. As it is a compact it only has a 3. 5 litre bowl but this is rather satisfactory for those people who only want to make items for family members intake. It simply mixes up cake batters and dough and the increased settings give very good speed for mixing product and egg whites. The blender attachment is quickly to take care of and use and blends cooked foodstuff and liquids simply. This is a fantastic expenditure for those people who are fascinated in discovering to bake as it offers them all the functionality of the larger sized sized mixers in a scaled-down and additional economic device so they can experiment and master building the different forms of merchandise that are getting far more popular to make instead than get or a good piece of excess equipment for the skilled baker.

Only in addition, and i experienced a special rate. I am incredibly happy by financial investment.

Tefal Kitchen Machine Compact with Blender attachment – 700 Watt

  • Compact yet versatile kitchen machine
  • Electronic speed controls: 4 positions + pulse
  • 3.5 litre stainless steel bowl with splashguard
  • High quality metal pastry tools
  • 1 litre blender

Just purchased a person, looks alright but when you open up the box there is a noticeable deficiency of recipes. Not doing any baking for some time i am seeking to make some brioches for friends tomorrow.

But not a punchy very little hatchback with nicole breathing heavily in the passenger seat this is not that sort of gallic get-about. It really is extra like an ultra-compact people today carrier – basic interior compact plenty of to set in the garage, but not major plenty of to basically have that many regular-sized persons. You close the doorway shut when you get in and it clanks as an alternative of clunks. The suspension dips so alarmingly when you sit that you panic you have place on a colossal sum of pounds. It is not the sort of car or truck to pull a caravan. In no way in advance of have you so yearned for a little bit of solid german engineering. You test out the accelerator and you hear that tinny motor strain like a shetland pony pulling a dray, sounding much more like a two yr aged obtaining a hissy in good shape than a entirely-capable motor car, and you really feel a little flinch of guilt each individual time you velocity up with any enthusiasm. It truly is like torturing the lousy matter. In the same way tortured, this metaphor has likely served its intent for the time currently being. This mixer, then, serves as a reminder to all sentient gadget people: always retain in head the trade-off that companies make in between financial gain and high quality – in this article the harmony is tipping as well much towards the contemporary working day technique of producing items that are designed to be short term instead than lasting why buy a kitchen product that won’t be close to in 10 years’ time?will it be a mere reminder of what – to coin a phrase – you could have won, if you would invested a bit more. In its favour, it does carry this degree of gadgetry to a a great deal more cost-effective degree this is extra pleasurable than a hand blender, and at minimum it does what it can be intended to, admittedly with less panache than a much more pricey product.

This kitchen mixer is ideal for a human being who only utilizes this type of product often as it has a ‘distinct’ funds really feel about it is development. Plastic as a substitute of metallic predominates and i suspect it will not stand up to hefty use for quite very long. On the other hand,it does get the job done fairly well and the effects attained have been really pleasing. 700 watts is not high for a ‘kitchen machine’ but ought to be alright for most responsibilities necessary of it. At this selling price stage in the sector this machine is a fantastic alternative.

Tefal Kitchen Machine Compact with Blender attachment – 700 Watt : An almost flawless little mixer. A couple of weeks ago, i decided i wanted to get back into baking. So i went to argos and decided to splurge on a stand mixer, as my hand mixer was getting old and the motor was beginning to smell a bit. I was originally going to go for a bosch mum, but i decided to save £150 and go for the tefal. And though i’ve only used it twice so far, i can confidently say i have no regrets. It’s not as pretty as a kitchenaid, but it’s not ugly either. It comes with a metal dough hook, plastic paddle beater and a wire (with a bit of plastic on the bottom) balloon whisk. Mine didn’t come with the blender attachment, but that’s what you get if you buy from argos. The 4 speed settings are quite adequate for my needs. 1 is a slow speed for kneading and folding, 2 is for mixing up cake batter, and 3 and 4 are for whipping and whisking.

Only plus, and i had a special price. I am very pleased by investment.
The tefal kitchen machine works very well and is a very good size for the smaller cakes and scones etc that i make now my family have flown the nest. My only reservation is that it is a bit ‘wobbly’ when mixing heavier consistency’s such as scone mixtures. Otherwise i am very pleased with it.

I got this to keep at our holiday home, so i did not have to haul my large kenwood back and forth. The price we paid was great. 50 from sainsburys, then £15 off in necta points. It was not as good, but did a fair job. The only thing that i wasn’t so pleased with was the feel of the rim of the bowl. All in all , i’m glad chose it.

Previously had a kenwood for 40 years, this of course doesn’t come up to that standard but a lot cheaper that £300+impressed with the speed this was delivered. Works well, found the blades a bit difficult to remove but other than that finei notice that no liquidiser jugs are glass now – may be a sign of the times my kenwood had a glass liquidiser and was made of metalstill can’t compare a ford with a rolls royce and shouldn’t tryall in all impressed with the service you provided. Ps you were much cheaper than pc world/currys.

Whilst the machine seems well built on first inspection its soon becomes apparent all is not well at the house of tefal. Firstly the motor, when there is a fair bit of blending and you want to start mixing with some vigour turning up the speed it becomes apparent that the 700w motor is not really up to the job. The whole unit seems to have been built down to a fairly low budget with the sorts of things that can make a unit of this kind to seriously lose its initial appeal. The tools and attachments are not the highest quality you would expect from tefal products, so it leaves you wondering who is this aimed at. The main mixing bowl is brushed stainless steel finish and should give no problems for many years to come. The blender jug is constructed from a clear crystal type plastic and i am not sure if dropped it would not break (not that i am about to find out). The 3 piece tool-set consists of a whisk, beater and a dough hook, and these are of the poor quality construction seeming susceptible to breaking. The unit is able operate at four different speeds allowing a variety of blending tasks, however the power (or lack) of the motor makes this a bit of a trial. All attachments can be put into a dishwasher for easy cleaning.

Good enough for starter and occasional cooks. This kitchen machine is one which is more than adequate enough for what the majority of starter cooks want and need and is fine for people who don’t cook all the time. It looks ok (if a bit plastic) in the kitchen although personally i’d prefer not having the white which shows up every speck of dirt and dust. I’d prefer the all over stainless steel look or a bright and modern color – white is very bland and old fashioned for a kitchen gadget these days. The size of the box is misleading since it doesn’t take up too much room on the counter when you get it out. Although you’ll need space for the blender and attachments somewhere. Love, love, love the blender attachment which is so handy for making very quick and tasty milkshakes as well as smoothie type drinks – perfect for when in a rush in the mornings. I’ve actually made a huge deal of use with the blender. Not that the blender won’t do really hard things like ice – you’d have to buy a special blender if you wanted it for mixing ice etc. It’s fine on soft stuff which is what i use in shakes etc.

This is a good investment for those who are interested in learning to bake as it gives them all the capability of the larger sized mixers in a smaller and more economic unit so they can experiment and learn creating the different types of items that are becoming more popular to make rather than buy or a good piece of extra equipment for the experienced baker.

This kitchen mixer is ideal for a person who only uses this kind of device occasionally as it has a “distinct” budget feel about it’s construction. Plastic instead of metal predominates and i suspect it will not withstand heavy use for very long. However,it does work rather well and the results obtained have been very pleasing. 700 watts is not high for a “kitchen machine” but should be ok for most tasks required of it. At this price point in the market this machine is a good choice.

My first reaction to receiving this was “oh my word, it’s huge”. Fortunately, out of the box it’s not quite as massive but before ordering you may want to check you have cupboard space for this (height:34cm, depth: 21cm, width: 37cm, plus some space for the blender/liquidiser attachment next to it). Despite the acres of plastic, it’s rather heavy and the build quality feels good. The controls are very simple – the main knob selects the speed (pulse, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4); other than that, there is a lever that needs to be pressed down to raise or lower the mixer attachment out of or into the bowl. A plastic panel slides off to attach the blender cylinder. The blender is adequate – it behaves as advertised, but won’t handle heavier tasks (it wouldn’t purée chunks of apple for me). The mixer comes with three attachments – whisk, mixer paddle and dough hook/kneader. 5 litre bowl should provide plenty of space for most recipes – certainly up to serving eight.

But not a punchy little hatchback with nicole respiring heavily in the passenger seat; this is not that kind of gallic get-about. It’s more like an ultra-compact people carrier – basic interior; small enough to put in the garage, but not big enough to actually carry that many normal-sized people. You close the door shut when you get in and it clanks instead of clunks. The suspension dips so alarmingly when you sit that you fear you’ve put on a colossal amount of weight. It’s not the sort of vehicle to pull a caravan. Never before have you so yearned for a bit of solid german engineering. You test out the accelerator and you hear that tinny engine strain like a shetland pony pulling a dray, sounding more like a two year old having a hissy fit than a fully-capable motor vehicle, and you feel a little flinch of guilt every time you speed up with any enthusiasm. It’s like torturing the poor thing. Similarly tortured, this metaphor has probably served its purpose for the time being. This mixer, then, serves as a reminder to all sentient gadget consumers: always keep in mind the trade-off that manufacturers make between profit and quality – here the balance is tipping too far towards the modern day approach of making products that are designed to be temporary rather than permanent; why buy a kitchen item that won’t be around in 10 years’ time?will it be a mere reminder of what – to coin a phrase – you could have won, if you’d spent a bit extra. In its favour, it does bring this level of gadgetry to a much more affordable level; this is more fun than a hand blender, and at least it does what it’s supposed to, admittedly with less panache than a more expensive model.

What attracted me to this food processor was definitely its footprint. Having a small kitchen, i can’t afford the space a kenwood chef would take up so this combination mixer and blender definitely fits the bill on that front. Unlike many other food processors in this kind of range, the top section is not detachable to use as a hand-held mixer. Instead it has a fairly substantial lever to unlock and tilt backward for access to the aluminium bowl. This bowl also comes with a splashguard type attachment which covers the front of the bowl and leaves open a slot for adding ingredients. Here the design seems to go off the rails a bit. The splashguard only covers part of the front so splashes can easily get into the area between the motor and the bowl. It’s also made of some fairly low-rent clear plastic. On top of the device are the speed control and a detachable flap which covers the blender attachment socket.

Just about ok but maybe the kitchen mixer falls between two stools. This appliance comprises a kitchen mixer and a blender. The manual refers to a grater assembly but this is not supplied. The full size appliance this is the compact version of has a bowl of 4l ie not that different. The materials the tools are made of are quite different – the ones supplied here are mostly plastic and have a cheap look to them with some rough edges whereas the full sized machine has metal attachments and though not tested by me look more robust on the pictures. However, this machine costs about a third less at the time of writing and it has some good points going for it in addition: the non slip suction feet work a treat, the machine is easy to use with a positive click when fully open, and dealt well with the full amount of cake mixture that i tested it with. I used the fullest permissable amount – a 4 egg victoria sponge mix. On the minor side, when i was creaming the fat and sugar, there was lots of this accumulating on the edges of the bowl. Once i added the eggs and flour however, it dealt with the mixture well and it soon turned a nice light colour. The cakes turned out light and even in texture. Another negative i am afraid: it was not very nice having to pull the used attachment out of the mixer when i am used to having an eject mechanism of mixers. Also the lip to stop the flour rising up has too small a tray so you end up having to spoon minute amounts of flour into it and most of the flour sits on the lip and you have to move that too. I would not buy this mixer as it is not robust, promises more than it delivers – in addition to the issues adding ingredients via the anti splash lid inlet, there was also lots of flour at the back of the mixer where the lid did not cover the bowl and on the front of the machine.

This mixer has been quite hard to review fairly. On one hand its just an average mixer but on the other hand its cheap compared to other mixers, so its hard to figure out who this product is designed for. Lets deal with the mixer itself first. The box is large and glossy, the item is chunky and plasticky – abit of a let down when the box is covered with loads of posh photos. Its called a compact mixer but compared to a kenwood chef it is about the same size with the exception of the small bowl. The bowl tools are all plastic and just have a metal shaft which just push into the head and pull out again (abit like the hand held mixers) so my worry is that the plastic they push into will eventually work loose or lose its grip like so many hand mixers before. The mixer head is quite large and chunky so its hard to see into the bowl but it does come with a splashguard which actually does work which makes a nice change for a mixer as most tend to allow flour to puff all round the kitchen. The 4 speeds are abit awkward as you do not have much control, but there is a pulse function and the dial is easily located and smooth to use.
