Our home economist, Fiona Mair, tested each attachment of the All in One and found it to be excellent for performance. She mashed potato, sliced and chopped carrots, chopped breadcrumbs, shredded cheese, kneaded pastry, emulsified mayonnaise and processed pesto and couldn’t fault the appliance.
Ease of use
It’s easy to use with sealed rubber controls and a comfortable grip. It has useful measurement grading on the processing bowl but releasing the shaft and locking the lid onto the bowl requires a little pressure and effort. You won’t be able to operate the unit until the bowl and lid are properly engaged on the motor base.
We found the processor can jolt when using high speeds but it’s generally stable on the bench with a non-slip base. The processor only has a pulse function which can make it difficult to process foods and hold the trigger at the same time. It has a convenient storage base where all accessories (except the whisk) can be stored and a protective cover for the quad blade. The plastic masher might discolour over time but all attachments are dishwasher safe.
Remember to remove the gear box from the lid before cleaning as this part should never be immersed in liquid – just wipe it down with a damp cloth.
This appliance is great for those of us who want a compact multi-function appliance that is intuitive to use and gives great results. The All in One is impressive for performance and it’s simple to use, too.
