Here’s our guide to the CookEasy+’s key features to help you get the most from this truly sophisticated appliance, along with some mouth-watering recipe ideas to get you started.
The all in one cooker
The CookEasy+ is the perfect complete meal solution for busy homes; an all in one cooker which allows you to prepare and cook delicious homemade meals with minimal mess and minimal fuss.
Feeding a crowd or batch cooking up a storm for the freezer? No problem. The 4.5l stainless steel bowl offers a large cooking capacity, enabling you to prepare meals for between two and 10 servings. The CookEasy+ also allows you to experience open bowl cooking with the lid off, so you can be a little bit more hands-on when creating your dishes.
The machine’s powerful 550W motor means it can tackle slow stirring or high speed chopping, and everything in between, while 1500W of heating power gives you the ability to really turn up the heat when you need it- all the way up to 180℃.
Easy to control
Smart and sophisticated the CookEasy+ may be, but when it comes to using it, we’ve kept things simple. Use the large full colour touch screen display and illuminated control dial to adjust the cooking temperature, set the timer, use the integrated scales and choose one of 3 stir speeds, 9 continuous speed and 1 ‘no speed’ setting.
The CookEasy+’s dual position direct prep tower allows you to prepare food directly where you need it, as you can slice or grate your ingredients either directly into the appliance or a separate bowl on the side. Taking all the hassle out of meal prep and saving you time-and washing up.
Choose from five interchangeable grating and slicing discs so you can prepare your ingredients exactly how you want them:
1 - Extra fine grating disc for Parmesan cheese 2 - Fine grating disc for cheese and firm fruit or vegetables 3 - Coarse grating disc for cheese and firm fruit or vegetables 4 - Thin slicing disc for cheese and firm fruit or vegetables 5 - Thick slicing disc for cheese and firm fruit or vegetables
The CookEasy+’s integrated smart scales are designed to save you both space and time, as you measure out ingredients weighing anything from 1g up to 6kg directly into the bowl or onto the weighing platform. Precise measurements are displayed on the illuminated screen, or via the Kenwood World app, giving you the benefit of accurate measurements when baking and being able to scale up recipes for large batch cooking.
9 useful presets
There are nine handy presets to help you create quick every day favourite dishes with minimal fuss. Choose from one pot meal, smooth soup, chunky soup, slow cook, knead, steam, sous vide and proof: all with the optimum time, temperature and stir speed required already programmed, or you can amend them to suit your own recipes. And once you’re done, use the rinse preset to give your CookEasy+ a thorough clean before disassembling.
The CookEasy+ offers a wide temperature range, enabling you to sauté, simmer, sear or steam using temperatures anywhere between 30 and 180℃. You can adjust the temperature in 1℃ increments, giving you the flexibility to prove dough, reheat meals, melt chocolate, make a sauce or throw together a sizzling stir fry. Whatever you’re cooking, you stay in complete control.
