You can never have enough kitchen plug points, so the new KitchenAid Go Cordless range is perfect. Six appliances, powered by one shareable 12V battery

We had our kitchen done up a few years ago, a total gut out and start again. The first thing our builder said, looking at the empty shell, was ‘how many wall plug points do you want?’

I was inclined to only have a few here and there, but our builder pointed out that the actual material costs were small and once the kitchen was finished adding more points would be expensive and messy.

So we had loads put in,  and yet they are all now being fully used and any extra device means another device has to be unplugged.

Cordless is definitely the way to go, although of course any cordless device will still need the occasional charge from a plug.

A recent and welcome improvement in power tools is the ‘one for all’ battery. Batteries make up a large part of a cordless device’s cost, so sharing one battery between various devices is a money saver.

Now that spirit comes to the kitchen with the new KitchenAid Go Cordless System – a range of powerful, cordless kitchen appliances, with just one removable Lithium Ion Battery battery. You can buy one device with the battery and then the rest of the range without, if you want. Or buy one extra battery so you have a spare, things always tend to run flat when you least want them to, after all. A set of lights on the battery indicates the amount of charge left.

The range includes six appliances; a Hand Mixer, Hand Blender, Food Chopper, Personal Blender, Coffee Grinder and Kitchen Vacuum. All are very stylish looking, as you expect from KitchenAid, and have the usual reassuring solidity and sense of proper quality build that will last a lifetime.

We took the coffee grinder for a test, our own mains grinder being on its last legs.

The battery is certainly impressive, a hefty 12 volter,  so lots of power there. It detaches of course and is charged by a USB C cable supplied in the box, but most of us will have a few cables lying around anyway.

Initial charging takes a while, after three hours we impatiently tried the grinder and it went flat almost immediately. A full overnight charge though has now lasted us over a week of coffee making. 

We found the machine not quite as powerful as our mains machine, grinding took a little longer, and we needed to upend the machine a few times as it ground the bottom beans well, but only shattered the beans on top, but shaking it all up every now and then solved that.

The locking  and safety system is solid and foolproof, no way you could accidentally shoot beans everywhere, or get a finger chopped. Very capacious too, KitchenAid reckon you can grind enough coffee for 12 cups at a time. The stainless steel beaker makes a handy place to store excess for next time.
