A Guide to Using Your Food Processor.
A food processor is a crucial kitchen tool for many recipes. You can usually achieve similar results using individual tools. Why not eliminate the clutter, effort, and confusion by having one appliance that can chop, dice, grind, and whip like a champion? In order to start to discover the extraordinary culinary options at your fingertips with your food processor, read our guide to learn some tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of your appliance.
The first lesson in food processing is learning what all the different attachments can do. The S-shaped blade is one of the most common, and can be used to achieve a variety of different consistencies in your food! Other less-used but equally handy attachments include the dough blade, the citrus juicer, and even a French fry disc! Foods you never thought you’d make at home suddenly become possible when you own a food processor.
Although the processor is a handy gadget with many uses, it does have limitations as well. Certain foods just aren’t meant to be prepared using a food processor, and these include mashed potato, which will become gummy and sticky if over-processed. If you identify these foods, you will never end up with a food processor snafu! For cleanup, consult our guide below, which will teach you how best to clean your beloved new kitchen treasure!
