The equipment of the kitchen machine KM 4515 by Rosenstein & Söhne
So much accessories for so little money: The 1,000-watt and about 7.5-pound food processor comes with a 4.5-liter stainless steel bowl with splash guard and refill and a glass mixer attachment with 1.5 liter capacity. In addition, a meat grinder attachment can be infected with a filling tray, with which pasta, hack and other mixtures can be shredded or directly filled via the sausage spout. Three different perforated discs with different diameters are available for this purpose.
Depending on the planned food, a dough hook, whisk or a stirring hook rotate in the mixing bowl. However, the parts are not completely free of play on the pin of the planetary gear. Likewise, the levers and caps are made of plain material and do not feel very nice. Somewhere the extremely low price must come. At the front of the plastic housing are the unlocking lever of the stirring arm and the setting wheel for the stirring speeds. For a secure stand even with heavy Knetarbeiten should provide four rubber feet. The power cable is well sized at 95 centimeters.

With a yeast dough we want to check engine power and dough hooks, the whisk is to produce firm ice cream, in the blender we fill ingredients for banana shake and pesto (one after another!) And the meat grinder to show how well he can sausage.
If a whisk in the mixing bowl is too far away from the bowl wall, it may be that the egg whites are not or only partially beaten. In our experiment, we add 5 egg whites of sugar, vanilla sugar and a little lemon juice to bake crunchy meringues. Although the whisk leaves about 1.5 centimeters of air to the edge of the bowl, he does his job on level 4 to Max. Quite passable, the egg whites are relatively fast. However, the device produces a very loud and unpleasant sound.
Now engine, gear and dough hooks are required: A heavy, solid yeast dough brings so many devices to its limits. The dough in this machine weighs up to one kilo, which is not too much, but is sufficient even for most bread recipes. The mixer arm battles through the crowd, and the whole box starts to move. But the four rubber feet hold everything firmly in place. Specifically, they can be solved only with difficulty and physical strength of the smooth ceramic field. At level 2, the dough has a very nice homogeneous and smooth consistency after about 15 minutes, the baking result is top!
And is enough speed at the connection for the Blender? A ripe banana plus a liter of cold milk should show it. Nice would be the result of a frothy shake without noticeable pieces of fruit. After about 30 seconds on level 4, I stop the mixer: The banana shake is airy, pieces are not found in it. Very good.
Now it gets a bit more demanding: my favorite pesto with arugula, roasted almonds and Parmesan needs a well-shaped ingredient knife in the blender, so everything is quickly and thoroughly crushed without becoming Mus. The result is good with level 3. However, when using the blender, the transmission rotates with the stirrer. So that nothing gets caught here, the bowl should be placed under it. It is noticeable that the engine smells unpleasant at high speeds. This may be after prolonged use, but it is not standard.
Homemade grilled or sausage is the coronation: Here I know exactly what’s in it and must at the barbecue no skeptical guest sayings to “eye and cartilage sausage” endure. In particular, the – admitted – rich Thuringian is my frequently produced favorite. Put the coarse disc into the housing, fill tray – let’s go. The first round works fast and well, also the second through the middle disc. But when I want to turn the farce for the third time and with the fine disc through the wolf, the pulse rises and the nerves begin to flutter: The farce repeatedly swells out laterally from the filler legs, the tamper has too small a diameter and can Do not push the meat mass down cleanly. After a much too long time and one or another outburst of anger, the Thuringians are finally on the table in front of me. That was (unfortunately) no pleasure! I have not experienced. Here the manufacturer should check the function.
