Food Chopper Buyers’ Guide
A food processor is a kitchen tool used to prepare food by blending, chopping, shredding, pureeing, dicing, and slicing. Food processors are very similar to blenders in many ways but there are some significant differences. A food processor usually does not require any liquid during use, while a blender requires a specific amount of liquid such as water in order to be able to properly blend the ingredients. Food processors are usually used for more intensive tasks, such as slicing hard vegetables or mixing thick dough. They also usually come with wide mixing bowls, so you can add many ingredients straight into the machine. Food processors also include various attachments and blade types, making them able to handle various tasks involving different ingredients.
Start by choosing the blade you want to use for your ingredients and putting them into the food processor. Secure the lid and the bowl onto the processor, enabling the food processor to operate. Drop the food you want to chop into the long feed tube. Make sure to not overfill the bowl above the mark or it will cause leakage leading to a big mess. If the food isn’t going through or is going through very slowly, you can use the plastic pusher to help the food move into the bowl. For chopping food, use the S-shaped blade and the pulse button while also keeping an eye on the consistency of the mixture. For shredding cheese, put a block of it into the processor and use the pulse setting with the shredding blade. The S-shaped blade can also be used for soup fixings when broth and vegetables are added.
