The Power of the Food Processor

Does the idea of using a food processor sound intimidating to you? Do you have a fear of instructions and using appliances with more pieces than a puzzle? Put those fears to rest with those garbanzo beans you’re fixing to let go to waste in that sleepy salad.

Cooking Help is OTW:

Even the next greatest food star needs a little help in the kitchen. Let’s face it, life is “bizee” man and the better the meal, the more help we need. A chopping, whiring, slicing dynamo is just what the iron chef ordered. Make short work of a long list of ingredients and you’ll have crowds eating out of your hand; If you’re into that sort of thing, anyway.

Never Fear, Newer & More User Friendly Models are Here!!

About those worries we talked about earlier, I like what Robin Sharma said; “The fears we don’t face become our limits”. That being said, if you’re techno-phobic or, suffer from a fear of too many instructions, (Ok, guilty), the time has come for you and I to face our fears and break off the limitations! With modern models of food processor that come with clear-cut instructions, using them today, is easier than doing single-digit division. Besides, many pro foodies report that you can do so much with just the main blade attachment that the rest of the pieces get thrown into their “other stuff” drawer and never see use. Some more food for thought:

  • Weighing the Pros & Cons – Make a list and check it twice. What exactly ARE your misgivings about the use of the small appliance? Make a shortlist of each and see for yourself what stacks up.
  • Ask around – It has been said that “where no advice is, the people fall”. Ask anyone with a kitchen, and you will find that the majority either own one of these efficient do-dads or secretly wish they did. 
  • There’s One out for Your Budget – Here comes the other part of the magic and fun; SHOP!! Shop around girl, be free! Like those cute little pink regulation golf shoes you just HAD to have in order to play the course, legally, you have been given permission and a near command… get a best food processor! It can save you time and bring your family around the table again – Remember that dusty round thing with all that paper on top it? Yeah, that one. No one handy to interview?
  • Switch your day up in five short minutes; And, those garbanzo beans? How about a quick homemade hummus?

Go Cray Cray with the Creativity:

Even if they don’t get you! So, whether you’re a cool gun metal gray cooking guru or hot pink patisserie pretender; Ready for the big momma, multi blade, super slicer or starting out small with the simple chop and dice version, be you! There’s one calling your name, completely within range of your pocketbook. Wishing you delicious dishes and happy hunting!

How to select the best blender?

If you are the person who loves to make shakes, smoothies, or soup then buy yourself a blender. Blenders are capable of blending the ingredients to a smooth consistency in a few seconds. Buying a good blender can not only help you save time but it also gives better final results. You can use a good blender for many purposes like blending salad dressings, whipping whole grain waffles, preparing creamy, making delicious desserts and even thick shakes and smoothies for babies in blender. While selecting the best blender for yourself, you must take into account the following factors:   

Functions:

The blenders available in the market these days range extensively in terms of the functions they could perform. While the basic ones just blend liquids with soft items, the more sophisticated ones can also prepare soups and even process hard items. The price does not necessarily depict the competency level of the machine and some less expensive blenders competently perform several tasks. Blenders are mostly electric while some manual blenders are also available. Cordless blenders could be more convenient. You must select the blender that suits your needs and demands.

Power:

Though the power of a blender does not necessarily equate with better blending however; you may choose a high power blender if you want it to do some tough tasks with blender like ice crushing and processing hard foods. On the other hand, a normal standard blender is capable of doing all the regular tasks like stirring, blending, mixing, and pureeing.

Blades

Many blenders come with two sorts of blades; dry one for grinding grains and the other one for liquids. Dry blades function differently as they pull the ingredients downwards which enables uniform grinding of the dry ingredients. Blender Reviews is a useful site for looking over the things to consider before purchasing blenders, ratings and tips too. Some blenders have multipurpose blades that work well for both sort of ingredients. Blenders with detachable blades are generally preferred as this simplifies cleaning of the blender.

Servings and Storage Capacity

You must also decide what typical serving you prepare and then decide the capacity of the blender accordingly. There are personal or mini blenders also available in the market which prepare only 1-2 servings and would be ideal for those who have limited storage capacity. These could even be taken with you while you are travelling. 

Budget

Your budget is an important factor while making the purchase decision for blenders. In order to buy the best blender while remaining within your prescribed budget, it is necessary that you first decide what sort of blender you want and then seek the significant features. The more the functions, the more expensive the blender would be.
