If you’re like me, spending hours and hours in the kitchen trying and creating recipes, you understand the need for a handy tool that can blend, cut, shred, knead and whip. Hand blenders just make preparations so much easier, so the real fun begins!!
I received the Bosch MaxoMixx 1000W hand blender (MS8CM6160G) as a Christmas present. It’s been 3 months now and I absolutely love it! It is currently my favourite kitchen tool, I use it every other day or sometimes every day. I’ve used it to make so many different soups, turkey meatball, garlic sauce (yeah you’re right, the kebab shop garlic sauce), tomato pasta sauce, parsnip puree, breadcrumbs, sesame paste and minced ginger.
I’ve really enjoyed using the hand blender so far, so I’m going to introduce my new favourite tool to you.
Ease of Use
First of all, I’d like to say the design is beautiful. It’s stainless steel with an ergonomic non-slip soft-touch handle, which makes it comfortable to hold and completely safe even when the speed is up. It weighs only about 1.52kg and has large buttons that control all the settings, making it very handy around the kitchen and easy to use.
The Bosch hand blender comes with the following accessories:
1 x mixing/measuring beaker
1 x stainless steel mixing wand
1 x balloon whisk
1 x universal shredder
2 x lid
Both the beaker and 750ml extra-large shredder have lids, so if you want to store your sauces and pastes in the fridge you can put the whole thing straight in.
The accessories are also easily released using a simple click-mechanism, after which they can be washed, dried, and locked back in safely. The accessories (except the lids) are dishwasher safe, what more can I ask for?!
If you have a broad palate and love making soups, purees, sauces and pastes, you will love the powerful 1000W motor. It really can process almost any ingredient. There are also 12 speed settings and the turbo function, so I can adjust the speed depending on what I’m blending and the consistency I want.
The QuattroBlade Pro is a 4-bladed knife that guarantees maximum efficiency, and I’m most fascinated by its built-in anti-splash and anti-suction technology.
This hand blender has also been upgraded to chop up veggies and blend them to a perfect consistency. Now I don’t have to cut my veggies, cheese, nuts or meat by hand and it’s ideal for sauces and soups (which I love so very much). Even when it comes to baking, I can easily whisk my eggs, whip up some cream or mix pancake dough with Bosch.
Just one problem
If I must talk about one problem with the hand blender, I guess it will be the need to avoid wearing out the blades. For example if you want to use it to chop meat, you’ll have to work a little to get rid of the bones first. But the thing is, these days I just buy boneless meat if I’m making a dish that needs the blender, so it’s not really an issue for me.
My final verdict…
I do highly recommend this hand blender if you’re dying to release your inner Jamie Oliver.
