Introducing Heston Blumenthal’s range of kitchen appliances
A self-taught chef, Heston Blumenthal's route to the top has been unconventional yet memorable. Best known for his molecular gastronomy, Heston’s food involves rule breaking, unusual experiments and lots of quirkiness. Snail porridge or bacon and egg ice cream anyone?
With three Michelin stars under his belt and a wealth of cooking knowledge and experience, who better to help design a new range of home appliances than Heston himself?
The Sage by Heston Blumenthal range features 16 innovative products, all vigorously tried and tested with the gadget-loving, home cook in mind.
For me, the stand out product in the range is the Tea Maker It’s the first fully automatic tea maker ever. Simply select your chosen tea type and once the temperature is reached, the leaves are automatically lowered into the water, and then back up again. Genius!
Another favourite is the Smart Scoop™ Ice Cream Maker. It can cleverly detect the hardness of the mixture based on your selection of sorbet, frozen yoghurt, gelato or ice cream and keeps the mixture cool. It also plays an ice cream van tune when it’s finished!
The Smart 2-Slice Toaster, Silver produces perfect toast every time. With a handy Lift & Look™ function, a motor lifts up your toast to check if it’s done enough. Press the ‘Bit More’ button if not, and it will brown for that little bit longer.
For an extra helper in the kitchen, the Multi Cooker™ fits the bill perfectly. The risotto programme controls the temperature to absorb flavour, lightly agitates the rice while simmering, and turns itself off once ready. Delicious results with minimum effort.
If you love fresh juice in the mornings, the Nutri Juicer is perfect. An extra large chute easily accommodates whole apples, pears and oranges so you can squeeze every last bit out rather than wasting any. The powerful 1200W motor won’t leave you waiting around for long either.
For baking enthusiasts, the Scrape Mixer Pro™ Stand Mixer is a real winner. The mixing action replicates the likes of machinery used in bakeries and patisseries. A large mixer head covers the entire bowl and an ingenious scraper beater wipes the sides and bottom of the bowl, so you no longer have to scoop any remainders with a spatula. The perfect solution for light and fluffy mixtures without any waste.
Look out for the other products in the Sage by Heston Blumenthal range, there’s bound to be something that inspires your inner chef.
