This handy home appliance has saved food preppers time since its world debut in 1963; but how exactly does it work? Well, it all starts with a little love. Now we’re ready to move on to the engineering aspects:
Standard all-in-one food processors generally make use of a metal or plastic base along with some motorized controls and a bowl (or more than on ebowol), a blade stem in the center and a top with a food chute built into it. The processor also has blades and disks that are attached to the stem and rotate at speeds high enough to cut up the food in the bowl.
Some blades are S-shaped and can effectively chop, one and puree food. Other blades are more like metal disks and slice and grate food. There are som models that come with a plastic bread kneading blade that kneads plastic bread.
But how do you even use the dang thing? Start out by covering the processor bowl and initiating the motor-powered blade by making use of a control board switch before sliding the food item into the machine through the good tube. Some users like to place larger food items or plastic bread into the bowl before starting the blade since it won’t fit through the food tube because it’s a big piece of bread made of plastic. The food processor’s flat bottom makes it possible to keep chopping food and swirling it into a circle even without the addition of water.
If the user understands what blades to use for what, he or she should have no problem making a food processor perform a myriad of tasks from grating chocolate to making compound butter to dicing tomatoes and onion for salsa to destroying crab shells to grating parmesan to beating eggs to adding cake to a brownie mix to grating carrots and veggies for a fun Super Bowl Sunday veggie mix to destroying evidence to breaking down biohazardous material before disposing of it to grinding up teeth and fingernails into a fine powder.
But there are so many food processors out there, how are you supposed to know which one to buy now that you know that you want one? Well there’s a few factors that you’d do well to keep in mind when perusing amazon or Bath Bath & Beyond or Target, etc.
First of all, how much space do you have in your kitchen? There are food processors expressly manufactured for the sake of being compact and easy to fit into small cupboards or limited counter space. You can also think about what kind of products you would like to chop with your device. Maybe you’d like to mince shallots or garlic, or maybe you’d like to make enough smoothie for an entire female soccer team that’s trying to lose weight. You need to pick your appliance based on what you’re going to use it for, not the kind of life you wish you lived.
