Tefal Cuisine Companion: what you get for your money
The Cuisine Companion comes with five attachments: a stirrer, a whisk, an ‘ultra blade’ for chopping and a kneading/grinding tool.
The kit includes a handy cleaning brush, and a spatula for scraping down the sides.
It has a 4.5 litre bowl and a lid that includes an adjustable steam top. This lets you control the amount of steam you let out depending on the dish you’re making.
The processor also comes with a three part recipe book that contains 100 each of starter, main course and dessert ideas. These collectively give you a million different menu choices and is useful to help you while you’re learning to use the Tefal Cuisine Companion.
Which? verdict on the Tefal Cuisine Companion
Our researcher challenged the Cuisine companion to create a range of different dishes including casseroles, cake mixes, smoothies and pastes.
She said: ‘The kneading tool was brilliant at evenly mixing smoothies and cake batters, and the fact that the bowl, lid and attachments are dishwasher safe really helped to cut down on cleaning.’
