I don’t know what I did before I had my food processor. I do catering out of my home and the food processor I chose takes a lot of the work away and allows me to take on more jobs with the time I’m saving. The main purpose of my processor is to help eliminate all of the tedious tasks that I was doing day after day after day before I found the perfect one for my kitchen. Tasks such as slicing vegetables and even kneading dough have been made fast and simple just buy the flip of a switch. They are actually pretty similar to blenders as they use blades that whirl around quickly to break food apart.
The history of anything has always fascinated me and the food processor was no different. After seeing all of the time and effort that was put into chopping, dicing and kneading in his customer’s kitchens, Pierre Verdan, a French catering company salesman decided there must be an easier way. He then set out to invent what he envisioned as a bowl with a revolving blade in the base to cut food. This was expanded on during the 1960’s. The first food processor was released to the public in 1972 and our kitchens were never the same.
I tried doing things by hand for a long time, as I am an old-fashioned cook. However, my mom had the best food processor on the market and during a Sunday dinner, I couldn’t resist using it for a dish I was making. I loved it and knew that I had to get my own. I got on the Internet when I got home and read some of the food processor reviews and checked into the potential uses for a food processor. My business was still struggling so I couldn’t afford to spend a bunch of money on something I would only use a few times and toss in a cabinet.
