Leading Brit Chef Heston Blumenthal, who is also an appliance geek, reckons the new Breville Boss blender is a cracker not just for its looks but also for the quality of its motor blades and the way it delivers “great” food preparation.
Described as a sleek, high-velocity super blender, this $999 device is tipped to head straight to the top of the charts in the food appliances that cooks “must own”.
Blumenthal, who is now involved in the product development and design of products for Breville, is currently relocating his popular Fat Duck restaurant to Melbourne. He said he was amazed by “the creativity” capable with the new Boss blender.
The Boss is Breville’s most powerful blender to date with a 2200 watt motor. It can make everything from green smoothies, hot soups and sorbets to non-dairy milks, nut butters, and flours – without the need for an additional dry grains attachment.
Other features include the unique ProKinetix blade and bowl system that pulverizes food into 50 per cent smaller particles than traditional blenders; a pause/play feature for the temporary removal of the jug from the base; a 2.0 litre BPA-free Tritan jug which is impact resistant, shatter-proof and dishwasher-safe; a timer with count up and count down functions; and an auto-clean function.
Presets include smoothie, green smoothie, frozen dessert, soup and pulse/ice crush. There are 12 speed manual control settings, and a mill setting for ingredients such as flours, non-dairy milks and whipped cream.
