Kohersen VC05S is a robot for salads and desserts. It is equipped with two working tips, 6 cutting bits and a 150-watt motor. How does it work in practice and is it worth buying? About it in today’s material.
I received the robot for review from Kohersen. As you may have read in other reviews, I really like testing devices designed to make cooking easy and enjoyable for everyone. The latest offer from Kohersen aspires to be such devices. Has it lived up to my expectations?
The device is not large. This is a big plus, because the kitchen is always too tight. A large number of equipment causes problems with their subsequent storage. For this reason, there are often times when you use something once in a while and then it mainly lies in the cupboard.
In the set with the Kohersen VC05S salad and dessert robot, we have a central unit with two interchangeable fronts. One of them is used to prepare fruit desserts, the other allows the use of different knives. Interestingly, they are of different colors so that you can distinguish them at a glance. However, it requires practice, because without looking at the drawings on the box or the manual, I don’t know what for which one is. And we have a total of 6 different inserts to choose from.
The first is for cutting thin, smooth slices. It can be used to cut, for example, carrots, zucchini, potatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onions, turnips, red cabbage, white cabbage, apples and even hard cheese. The second allows you to cut into thick, wavy slices. The third gives us the opportunity to take advantage of coarse-grained friction. In addition to vegetables, we can rub with it, among others chocolate or hard cheeses such as Parmesan. The fourth cap is for fine rubbing. The fifth is suitable for grinding or grinding. This option can also be used for rubbing old bread into breadcrumbs, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds or coconuts. The last, 6th attachment allows you to cut potatoes immediately into French fries.
To replace the cap, place your hand inside the cap and turn the stopper. After releasing it, we can take one out and insert the other. It’s very simple, but people with larger hands will have a problem reaching this blockade. It is also not very large, so I recommend that you put it in the device right after washing. Thanks to this, you will not lose it.
The Kohersen VC05S salad and dessert robot in practice
The assembly and disassembly of the device is very simple and takes literally a moment. This is very important in the context of storing the device or cleaning it after work. Here there is no problem with washing everything quickly and thoroughly. For comparison, my slow-speed juicer is used quite rarely, because I never want to disassemble the device into a few small elements and bother with cleaning them.
I like the solution with the colorful knife attachments. This allows not only their easy and quick replacement, but also allows you to slowly remember what and what it is used for.
Interestingly, my wife noticed exactly the same element as I did when I started using the robot after a while. The feed chute is transparent, as is the pusher. This one is hollow on the inside so you can grab it and press it easily. My wife found herself looking for him all over the kitchen and he was just tucked into the gutter. It flows so well that a moment later I started throwing vegetables instead of into the gutter, then into the pusher inserted in it. When I was surprised that the device was not chafing vegetables, my wife started to laugh.
To start the device, you need to press and hold a centrally located and quite large button. With the other hand, we quite instinctively press the put vegetables against the gutter. This can outweigh the device and tilt it. Even the instruction manual itself warns you about it.
While most attachments are pretty good in practice, I can’t say the same about the special French fries knife. It should be noted that the gutter itself is quite small in diameter, so the peeled potatoes must be cut enough to enter the device.
However, what comes out on the other hand can be called brushwood rather than chips. Not only pieces of potatoes can fly out of the bowl, but also large pieces of potatoes fall between the knife and the housing.
Out of curiosity, I tried to prepare the fries made in this way. I tested several ways – baking, deep fryer, pan frying and even a fat-free (hot air) fryer. The effect was always the same – either the whole thing is heavily burnt, or partially burnt and underdone, or the whole thing is underdone.
However, with other attachments, the effects are very good. However, it should be remembered to give a fairly large bowl at the outlet of the device. The rotating movement makes some pieces like to shoot to the side.
