Food processors are one of the most multipurpose kitchen appliances. Unlike a blender which requires liquid to mince its contents, this mean-machine can do without it and can grate up pretty much anything! So, if you are one of those people contemplating whether or not to buy a food processor, because
a) you do not know how to properly use a food processor in daily life
b) think about them as too much hassle to clean up afterwards or c) already own one (thanks to those wedding gifts!) but have been stored away where the sun don’t shine.
Allows you to unleash your culinary skills
Let’s be honest: most of us are scared to even try experimenting with different recipes we have looked up online or have been suggested to us by friends and family – because, who has the time? Think of your food processor as your own private chef. It will focus all its energy on doing all your basics and the work you really don’t want to do, so you can focus more on your culinary creativity and basically, cook more adventurously!
This beauty will save you loads of time doing basic chores like chopping, kneading, slicing etc in literally a blink of an eye! It can shred a block of cheese, chop all your vegetables and even whirl up a batch of ice-cream in no time at all.
Handles Parmesan Cheese like a pro
Shredding regular cheese can be a regular task for any food processor but grating Parmesan cheese requires some special skills – it is an entirely different story! Tackling this hard cheese requires man power and strength. Get yourself a good block of cheese and do it at home instead of buying pre-grated ones in the market, of which you can’t be sure of! It especially helps if you need it in a big bulk.
Good for Salad dressings and Pesto Preparation
Food processors have the ability to whip up big batches of any of your favorite salad dressing. Homemade salsas and pestos have never been easier to make!
Food processors initiate your vegan tendencies!
Most people avoid eating vegetable because chopping takes too much time. Be done with your chopping boards and say hello to your kitchen savior! Chopping veggies for soups, salsas, and stews can be a real nuisance if required to do manually. The food processor handles all of that and gives you finely minced garlic, onions, and ginger in a jiffy!
Making large batches never looked so easy
Sometimes we really cannot muster the strength to get up and cook every day, and so with the aid of the food processor, you can cook in large quantities so you can easily use it in portions throughout the week. You can double the recipe ingredients because it doesn’t matter if you need 20 cucumbers because your new friend will do it for you. Leftover portions can be frozen to be enjoyed on weeknights!
