So I’m not really great in the kitchen department. We’ve all seen my baking fails but I do have more success with my slow cooker and salads 😉
However, could my fails be down to a lack of decent equipment? Maybe. Maybe not but decent tools can’t hurt can they. So when I was offered the opportunity to review the Savisto 3 in 1 hand blender I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see if it really could make the difference to my kitchen disasters could I? It may not turn me in a Masterchef or the winner of GBBO but it may help me to make more edible food easier.
The Savisto 3 in 1 hand blender features 3 different attachments that are easily interchangeable depending on what you need. There is a whisk, blender and chopper. Meaning I pretty much have a good starting point to work with.
Using the Savisto 3 in 1 Hand Blender.
The first thing I tried was the blender. After spending the day salivating over some chicken and vegetables simmering away in my slow cooker, I decided to put the blender to the test to whizz up some souper (sorry) smooth chicken and veg soup for myself and Olivia. The girl is obsessed with homemade chicken soup but it needs to be smooth. Could the blender handle the task? Would it liquidise enough to please lil miss fussy pants?
It was pretty easy to use even I could do it! With 2 buttons on each side to attach each fitting they literally just clip on that easy. With an on and off button to hold down when in use and release when you are done it really is that easy to use. There is even a turbo button for those in a hurry, or those like me who have forgotten Olivia’s about to come home from school and needs to blend said soup ASAP!
It was so easy and not too noisy to use either. Blended like a dream. My old blender took so long and I usually ended up missing bits, but not with this one. I was impressed and there wasn’t any complaints from Olivia either except that I hadn’t made enough! So I went and made some more.
This time I used the chopping attachment to chop some vegetables instead of opting for pre chopped frozen vegetables. All I done was quickly peel and cut into chunks before popping into the blender and letting it do it’s thing. It’s thing was good. Even Olivia helped out. 5 seconds on setting 5 and a whole carrot had been shredded! 5 seconds! I was like WOW! Seriously that some mighty quick chopping action going on there. It took mere minutes from opening the stew pack to having everything chopped and in the slow cooker ready to go!
So obviously if you don’t want your veg so finely shredded then go for a lower speed. I did leave them in as pretty big chunks as well so it’s worth experimenting to get it to the right setting to chop to the size you need it for. This I would think is perfect for making baby food or when you need to hide the healthy foods in kids meals. With them literally blended down down so finely they are much easier to disguise!
Now To Make A Cake!
Next up was the whisk. Dare I even attempt to make a cake? I dared. All caution thrown to the wind and memories of my previous fail blurred and distorted, I promised myself it would be ok. No, good even. Today we would make something edible! No cake though, something else. Olivia went for choc brownies (yeah totally different that is!)
Even we couldn’t mess this up. Not even the fact we only have ROUND cake tins not SQUARE didn’t put us off. After all it just needed to taste good not look good!
I left Olivia to whisk up the gooey concoction and she loved it. For this we turned the speed back down to setting 1. I think this now means she would like to (attempt) bake more often now! And…… the brownie was edible. It didn’t look too fantastic but it was delicious especially delicious considering I, OK we, made it.
I love it. Easy to use, easy to clean but how much does this cost? Currently on offer for £35.99 the Savisto 3 in 1 Hand Blender is definitely worth every single penny of the full RRP (£59.99) in my opinion. A good sturdy appliance that does exactly what you need it for. It looks to be my new most used appliance (aside from my coffee maker obviously) for the kitchen! I would advise to read the instruction booklet so you don’t use it for too long. After whipping a pretty big batch of chicken and veg soup I did notice it getting a bit warm. Probably due to continuous use. I left it for a while before carrying on. I possibly done too much too quick I am aware of this.
