Creature of Comfort Tools
If you are a creature of comfort who needs creature of comfort tools raise your hand! My food processor is on top of the list when it comes to taking inventory on what I do not want to live with out. Seeing the time I was saving by shredding cabbage in one instead of hand grating won me over immediately. The one I currently own is a Hamilton Beach Food Processor with Extra Crinkle Cut. That’s right! I can make my own french fries in minutes. My husband’s nephew gifted it to me. They either had two or did not use it.
Features that a creature of comfort will love
Mine was used and did not come with a book so I figured out everything on my own. I did go over to the Hamilton Beach site and saw this was on of the features. I love this as cords can be such a pain when stored on the self.
If I had to grate cabbage like I did in the olden days then we probably would not eat cole slaw again!
I always pick the most watts and strongest motor I can find in appliances as I use them a lot and need dependability.
I can easily choose to slice, shred, crinkle cut & fine shred with the functions these blades provide.
This can really handle large items and I love that the parts that are plastic are BPA-free.
I don’t own a dishwasher because that is one of the ways we keep our electric bill around $50.00 a month but I know that is important feature for many.
How Often Do I Use My Appliances?
Several times during the day and when I am meal prepping then they get used for hours. One tip that I will share that helps me is that I keep the ones I use the most on the counter and the ones I use not as frequently go on a convenient shelf I can easily reach. When I store them high or store in cabinets I use them less frequently.
Hand Grate or Food Process?
Barb and I compared our photos of hand grate and food process. We both agreed there was no visual difference. “Thank you Hamilton Beach” because I hate to hand grate.
Barb Webb, editor of Rural Mom and I thought we would have fun by doing a vegan recipe challenge. I took her zucchini bread recipe You can see the end result of the challenge on RuralMom
I am out in the kitchen daily making it work for our species of ‘creature of comfort’.
So on the whole, a creature of comfort needs hers/his tools and the Hamilton Beach Food Processor is definitively one of mine.
