WANT to cut down on your time spent be­ing a kitchen slave, while still be­ing able to turn out home­cooked meals to nour­ish your fam­ily and im­press guests? This may sound like a pipe dream, but Pana­sonic’s MK-F800SSL Smart Food Pro­ces­sor makes it a Kitchen Mis­sion Pos­si­ble.

What you’re look­ing for in a kitchen ap­pli­ance is not only ver­sa­til­ity and ef­fec­tive­ness of func­tion, but one cre­ated via in­tu­itive de­sign – so that you re­ally have all you need in one ma­chine, at the press of a but­ton.

The pre-pro­grammed Glass Touch Auto Menu will al­low you to do ev­ery­thing from mince to shred to spin veg­eta­bles of ex­cess wa­ter, with just one touch.

The sleek, gor­geous black and sil­ver ma­chine comes with a lucky 13 ac­ces­sories, which in­clude a host of ul­tra-sharp blades for slic­ing, chop­ping, whip­ping, grind­ing, grat­ing and mix­ing, as well as a cit­rus press for juice, a knead­ing blade for dough and a blender and dry mill. They’ll al­low you to perthe form up to 33 func­tions with ma­chine.

And the ac­com­pa­ny­ing Tri­tan jug – durable, BPA-free and dish­washer-safe, too – has a ca­pac­ity of 2.5 litres.

Here’s what the Smart Food Pro­ces­sor can do in your kitchen:

Mince meat, not words

Large blocks of meat have met their match in the slice-and­dice power of the high-speed blades. The ease with which you can mince your own meat gives you more power over what goes into your food – now you can make whole­some ham­burg­ers for the kids, with no ad­di­tives!

Chop chop

Those onion-cut­ting nin­jas will now only ap­ply to heart-tug­ging so­cial me­dia posts – re­duce onions to itty-bitty flavour blocks with the Chop Mode in a jiffy. No tears nec­es­sary, and the ma­chine works so fast that you won’t be left with a wa­tery onion slurry ei­ther – just crunchy diced onions or veg­gies.

So cool

Frozen Mode al­lows you to quickly and eas­ily process semi-frozen fruits and veg­eta­bles. This means you can have green smooth­ies and creamy shakes any time you feel like it – not to men­tion mak­ing your own smooth, fluffy gelato.

Smooth op­er­a­tor

Those sharp blades and a high­speed con­tin­u­ous op­er­a­tion can con­spire to churn out the smoothest, silki­est pastes. Now within your reach: home-made nut but­ters, fra­grant tahini, gor­geous pesto and dips – and so much more.

Set sal­ads on spin

If you love sal­ads and want a speedy, con­ve­nient way to spin your veg­eta­bles, that’s just one more thing this food pro­ces­sor can do for you.

The salad spin­ner at­tach­ment will spin off any ex­cess mois­ture, leav­ing you with crisp, fresh delino cious­ness, in time at all.

Pos­i­tively mod­ish

You can also do things man­u­ally, rather than se­lect­ing from the pre­menus. set

Shred, grate and slice by se­lect­ing from the spe­cial, ul­tra-sharp blades that come with the ma­chine – se­lect Con­tin­u­ous Mode for a fine tex­ture, or ad­just the vary­ing speeds on In­ter­mit­tent Mode for greater con­trol over the fi­nal tex­ture of your food item.

The Pana­sonic Smart Food Pro­ces­sor MK-F800SSL re­tails at RM899.
