Kenwood Food Mixer Review
The Kenwood food mixer is the best food processor for those of you who find you struggle for storage space around your kitchen. It’s the ideal size for student accommodation too, where space is of the essence.
With a size of 39 x 27 x 22 cm, and within that, you get the on board storage carousel, which is ideal for storing most of the accessories you get with the Kenwood FP731 food processor. The larger accessories, such as the dough tool will need separate storage, but the different shredding disc and even the whisk can be stored within the bowl that comes with it.
- Excellent Value for Money
There have been some comparisons made to the great Kenwood Chef food processor. One of the signature appliances and perhaps even the best food processor, to have been produced from Kenwood. The Kenwood FP731 does much the same and some say that it does even more, all for a fraction of the price.
That’s what you call great value for money.
To get a signature food processor, that could set you back hundreds of pounds to buy new, you can get the Kenwood FP731 and enjoy all the perks of an all-in-one food mixer, that does everything that most of the Kenwood kmix range would do, for a fraction of the cost too.
Whether you want to make smoothies, soups, coleslaw, pate, or just slice and dice your vegetables, the Kenwood FP731 will make light work of any food preparation chore. Leaving you to enjoy cooking even more.
- Super easy to clean
When it comes to home cooking, one of the major annoyances that many of us have is the clean up process. It doesn’t seem to be a problem for people who can clean as they go, but for those of us who end up with chopping boards, potato peelers, knives, mixing bowls, weighing scales and an overall mess all around the kitchen, the Kenwood food mixer is going to help you out even more.
Just toss in your ingredients, choose the setting that you need, switch it on and the job’s done. Simple as always. That’s Kenwood for you, standing by their slogan of keeping life simple, with innovative appliances that make light work of some dreaded chores.
It’s also dishwasher safe, which is always a perk.
- Superior in Versatility
The Kenwood food mixer is ideal for those of you who love to try out serving up new recipes, to keep your taste buds active. Food can be interesting, when you start to mix together a blend of different herbs, spices, vegetables etc, and there’s a number of celebrity chef recipe books available to help you try these dishes out.
The problem is that it takes a lot of preparation and often the recipe requires a food processor to either blend different ingredients to make a sauce, or get your vegetables prepared for cooking.
With the Kenwood FP731 food mixer, you’ll be able to take any recipe and let the food processor do all the hard work for you. All that’s left for you to do is to start cooking it and serve it up to your guests.

A few flaws in the Kenwood Food Mixer
There’s an extra large bowl that can take up a lot of storage space, in your cupboards, but you can house that on the unit and just remove it when you need to use the food mixer.
That said though, there is a bowl with spare parts, that can easily slot into the larger main bowl, so that helps with storage.
Not everyone wants to keep the large bowl out on display though. Shelves are handy for this in your kitchen to put the bowl out the way of your worktops. The main unit itself has a great modern touch and is perfectly suited to sit nicely on your worktops, without taking up too much space.
You’ll just need to store one of the bowls away when you’re not using it, but it’s not something that would stop you buying it. It would be more ideal if you could store the 2 bowls together on the unit, without having to separate them.
- Grater Attachment
Even using the best food processor you can find, you’re going to have difficulty grating everything you put through it. Carrots especially. The Kenwood FP731 seems to have more problems in this area, than others do, as it’s a large amount that’s left at the end of the vegetables.
You’re best to take the ends off, before putting through the processor, to avoid this problem. That’s something the instruction manual could have explained a little clearer.
Would the Kenwood food mixer be the best food processor for you?
Despite the couple of flaws the Kenwood FP731 has, there’s so much more to it that most certainly makes up for them. All the accessories, the variable speed settings, storage, modern slick design…and of course, the value for money. It’s a tremendous saving to what you’d pay for a similar Kenwood food mixer, such as the Kenwood Chef. For the value, it’s a dream machine for those that hate the hassles of food preparation, or even for those who struggle to find the time to cook fresh dinners at home.
If you’ve never tried a Kenwood food mixer before, then give the FP731 Kenwood food mixer, and you’ll soon see why people feel that this is by far the best food processor available.
