Excerpt: I bought the Kenwood FP920 after much searching for a replacement for my previous Blender/ Food Processor that I had killed while making a milkshake with Daim hard toffee bits. This one lives up to the task, not only does it make really good milk shakes and my morning smoothie, but i have made soups, salsas, marinades,the slicing discs really slices evenly, and the cheese grater is great!
Excerpt: Looks good in the kitchen. Very easy to use. Lots of gadgets which seem to all get packed away for storage. I use this machine every day. Absolutely love it. Though beware of sharp cutting blades. Whilst drying up ready for first use, blade cut thro tea towel and ended up with cut thumb.
Excerpt: I am delighted to write that the FP920 is now my best friend in my kitchen (apart from my Aga). The FP920 has taken all the hard preparation work out of cooking. I actually look forward to cooking meals, as I know it will only take a few minutes to prepare. The cutters and shredders work well when slicing all manner of vegetables and for grating cheddar cheese.
Excerpt: I am a 64 year old male who had never made a cake, scone or biscuit in his life. I bought a Kenwood 920 food processor because the one that my wife was currently using was getting past its best. Since taking delivery of our Kenwood I have made scones, biscuits and cakes amongst other things without any problem despite others telling me how difficult it was to make a cake successfully.
Excerpt: The multitude of pieces you receive with this product can be a might daunting. Having said that, I have yet to find a task it cant deal with. The construction of the unit is of a solid design, easy to clean and seems dishwasher proof. Having had a number of single blenders etc in the past I would really recommend this all in one product to any cook. My only complaint would be I find the whisk attachment a bit whimpy, but again overall an excellent machine.
Excerpt: I bought the FP920 from Amazon in November 2008. When I received it I thought it a great package - apart from the lid to the main bowl which was a very tight fit, requiring the bowl to be distorted in order to engage. I suspected a faulty lid as the bowl fitted perfectly the lid to the juicer. But Kenwood telephone support said that they loosened with use so I proceeded. After a few uses however it became impossible. My partner could not even get the lid on.
Summary: I hadn't realised I would probably not use as many of the bits that this processor has. It has a detachable spindle, because of the liquidizer attachment. If I had realised this I probably would have bought a model with a fixed spindle. The spindle always seems to come out when I remove the bowl then falls to the floor. I just feel it is not as sturdy as a fixed one would be. Otherwise a very good machine.
Summary: This product has a 1000W motor. It came with atttachments for slicing vegetables, blending and soup making. Have been usng it as a food processor mostly, not tried a lot of the bits. Motor rating is powerful enough to cope with the job, although after over half an hour of continuous use it does get quite warm.
Summary: I had high hopes for this food processor because of the price, but despite great looks I find it average. One star off for not shredding veg properly, large chunks left. One star off for the plasticky finish. I attached twin whisk the other day and after dismantling seen bits of plastic shaved off caused by friction.
