This is my most favourite tool EVER! No kidding! At first, I wasn’t sure if I needed it (and hubby was absolutely certain I did not need another kitchen gadget!), but after bringing this little baby into my world, there is no end to what she’ll do.
And she comes in every colour you can image, so it’ll be easy to match your kitchen theme!
The blade is nice and sharp, and at two varying heights, it ensures that you get everything even. The cup and the lip both slide lock into place, and it offers you both a chop as well as a puree option – both of which you will use throughout my recipes. Clean up is also a breeze. Stick the cup, blade and lid right into the dishwasher.
- Chop mushrooms nice and fine for stirfrys or for a filler in meat items like meatballs
- Cut down on veggie prep time for dishes like clam chowder and other pot recipes
- Use it to grind your oats and nuts for chocolate chip cookies
- Puree your homemade tomato sauce portions quickly and easily
- And really anything else you can think of!
And, as with all of my KitchenAid® investments, I recommend buying them online where you can. You will often get them for a better price than having to shop around to your local stores. You can also be confident you are not getting a returned item off of the shelf in a store – especially when you are working with motorized parts, things that could have been in someone else’s dishwasher (yuck), or just in case someone returned a lemon that got restocked. Let the post man do all of the work.
Then, ensure that you register your model with KitchenAid® online for warranty purposes. Way better than returning to the store. They simply ship you a new one – the same model or the next step up – if there are any issues.
