I tested for you: the KitchenAid Cook Processor

The latest addition to KitchenAid's Artisan line is called the Cook Processor and this multi-function food processor does it all for you - well, in the kitchen at least! The KitchenAid Artisan Cook Processor takes the brand's retro design and promises simple and precise use. We tested it at the office and we tell you everything.

The Kitchen Aid Cook Processor

With the KitchenAid Cook Processor, anything is possible: boil, fry, steam, simmer, prepare a dough, chop, knead, mince, puree, mix, emulsify, whisk, turn and stir. And yes, all of that! The all-in-one cooker from KitchenAid offers 6 automatic cooking modes, as many shortcuts that allow you complete peace of mind: the robot will choose the right rotation speed for the accessories and the right temperature for you. You have nothing to do. The robot takes care of everything! A cookbook application (AppStore and Google Play) will allow you to find new recipe ideas.

Bolognese pasta according to the Cook Processor

How about testing this beautiful robot in the office? I find some colleagues ready to make the culinary guinea pigs and launch out in the development of penne bolognaise. The recipe is taken from the KitchenAid recipe book. I chose it because the Bolognese pasta is always a good idea and because the book seems to imply that I will not need any other accessory than those provided with the robot. And since I'm in the kitchen, it suits me, since I don't have an oven, a mandolin, or even a cutting board. It's a tête-à-tête between the KitchenAid robot and me - and minced meat. Ingredients : - 200 grams of peeled onions - 1 clove of peeled garlic - 5 tablespoons of olive oil - 500 grams of minced meat - 100 grams of smoked bacon - 800 grams of canned diced tomatoes - 2 cubes of meat broth - 1 handful of fresh basil - 500 milliliters of water - 500 grams of uncooked penne The preparation of penne Bolognese: I install the "Multiblade" blade in the bowl. I put the onion and the garlic. I chop 5 seconds with the "pulse" button.
I replace the blade with the "StirAssist" mixer, I add the oil, the meat, and the bacon in the bowl. I choose the MIJOTER7 program, I press start, the screen announces: "step 1". I press Start and leave the robot alone for 5 minutes at 130 ° C. The robot chose all the temperature settings on its own. I let him do it. When step 1 ends, I add the tomatoes, the cubes, the basil, the water and I close the lid while removing the cap. I press start. And I go back to go about my business.
After step 2, the office kitchen smells good! I add the pasta from the package to the sauce. People tell me, "But it's never going to cook!" Yes, the robot takes care of everything. I press start, I just close the cap and let it go.
At table !

The Cook Processor: the verdict

I was able to feed 6 hungry mouths (including mine) with this Bolognese pasta recipe. I asked the aforementioned mouths to record their meal: my KitchenAid version pasta received an average of 8/10. Well done KitchenAid - I dare not put this note on the account of my cooking skills… So I come to the 2nd point: the Cook Processor did EVERYTHING for me. Finally, to be honest, I had to do two things: peel my clove of garlic and my onion. That's all. I didn't need anything other than the robot - I remind you that I was in the office! He did everything by himself like a grown-up, spreading the sweet smell of a simmered dish in offices. 3rd positive point: the Cook Processor is very beautiful. A little less massive than these counterparts - yet the capacity of its bowl is more than comfortable, 4.5 liters, against 3.3 liters for the Thermomix TM5 from Vorwerk - and this thanks to its high design. KitchenAid quality: the finishes are treated with an all-metal robot. Another advantage and not least: it is easy to use. One screen, few buttons. The only negative point that I would note: the weight of the machine. Let's say that once it has found its place on your work plan, it is better not to have to move it every day.
