Nowadays we all seem to be busier than ever. I am a good example with 2 kids, a full-time job in London with almost a 2 hours commute each way every day, my blog and connecting with you, our 3 Month Clean eating challenge groups, gym, running and of course friends and a bit of social life…… time is really precious! And due to all the daily activities that keep piling up, most of us don’t have the time to take good care of our diet. It is a challenge to spend time and money not only cooking, but also finding the right kitchen appliances.
Not to mention the fact that many of you don’t have enough space in their kitchen to find a place for all those devices that they would need. If you add all of this up no wonder that some of us might end up having an unbalanced diet that could affect not only our well-being, but our overall health as well.
But now there is something out there that can help and hopefully make your clean eating journey easier, the Tefal Cuisine Companion. It simplifies everything so that all busy people can quickly and effortlessly cook at home without loading their kitchens with tons of appliances. This all-in-one machine creates your dishes at the touch of a button. I was very lucky to receive this brilliant kitchen helper and I fell in love with it at first use.
The Cuisine Companion, which comes with a stainless steaming basket, stainless ultra blade knife, a stirrer, a mixer and a stainless steel kneading and grinding tool, is perfect for chopping, whipping, mixing, kneading, cooking, steaming, blending, stirring, emulsifying, whisking, searing, crushing, milling and precise heating. It manages all the tasks you need to do in the kitchen and I think it is by far the most useful machine that you could ever own.
It looks posh too! All white, silver and sparkly with a LCD display at the front with buttons to manage 6 different programs and temperatures, as well as 12 different speed settings and a timer.
It helps you prepare delicious homemade meals as fast as possible every day. You can make sauces, sorbets, dressings, bread dough, desserts, soups, main meals, steam your veggies and much more. My almonds have never been ground like this before! If you have seen my broccoli soup recipe with butternut squash noodles, you will know that the whole dish was made using just the Companion Cuisine.
You can actually place all the ingredients for the soup inside, select the right settings and watch the magic happen while you wash your hair or do homework with your kids.
Once the soup is ready, pop in the steaming basket, select the steaming program and time and your butternut squash noodles will be steamed in no time at all. Also, you will be able to save more money in the long term. We all know that eating out and takeaway foods are neither the healthiest options, nor the cheapest.
Currently, the Tefal Cuisine Companion is being sold exclusively at John Lewis for £699.95. I know I know, this is not cheap, but if you were to buy, as Tefal claims, 8 or even 5 different gadgets including a slow cooker, steamer and food processor you could spend even more. Plus Tefal really means quality. This is one investment that will definitely pay off nicely for many years to come.
My favourite things about the Tefal Cusine Companion so far:
- It is quiet, I think the most noisy moment was when I ” asked” it to ground my almonds.
- You can swap the attachments in the middle of the recipe without emptying the bowl
- It is very easy to wash, no hard scrapping needed. The main bowl is dishwasher friendly too.
- Very easy to operate even for somebody like me who is not the most techy person.
The Cuisine Companion comes with a ‘1 million menus’ cookbook that features 300 different recipes – 100 starters, 100 mains and 100 desserts. They are not all clean, but can be adapted easily. I have tried their carrot and courgette muffins and they were delicious. You can check my clean version here.
So basically, by buying the Tefal Cuisine Companion you will get a whole package. You have the chance to enjoy an incredibly useful machine that will ease your work and help you save tons of time, as well as a cookbook that includes a plethora of recipes that are so diverse that they can meet even the requirements of the pickiest person.
Thanks to its extremely practical features, any busy person can prepare tasty and nutritious homemade meals in a snap. Even though it is a highly advanced appliance, it is user-friendly and time-saving as you only need a few seconds to control it. The only minor drawback I would say is the price, but once you get started it really is worth it
