Cooking Chef

What is the Cooking CHEF?

The Cooking Chef is a kitchen machine/stand mixer which can cook in the bowl. The machine operates in the same way as the Kenwood CHEF range; however this machine has an induction heating plate underneath the bowl. Precise heating with an induction plate, sensitive thermometers and the mixing power and performance of a Kenwood CHEF, means this machine is capable of making much more than a standard mixer. Think of the bowl like a saucepan which stirs itself and can be maintained at a precise temperature. With this simple idea you can make a huge range of recipes from choux pastry and crème pâtissière, to stir-fry, stews, marshmallow, tempered chocolate and even popcorn!
