Food Processor Review
Versatile and user-friendly, food processors are probably one of the most used kitchen appliances in any commercial kitchen. Whether you need to emulsify, grate, chop, puree or shred, it's likely that you will turn to your food processor to quickly and efficiently get the task done. Whether you own a small cafe, or a large catering business, you will need to invest in a food processor to help with your food prep demands. So what do you need to consider before making your purchase?
As with all things restaurant, you will need to know how much you plan on using your food processor and what its main tasks will be. Will you need to use different types of blades? Will you be pureeing soups and dressing? Will you use it to knead dough? Mix batter? There are so many possibilities that once explored, can save you and your kitchen staff hours of prep time as you designate more and more tasks to your food processor.
If you are considering heavy duty usage, then a food processor with a stainless steel bowl is preferred over one with a plastic bowl, as they are less subject to stress cracks and scratches and are often dishwasher safe. If you will be processing large quantities of food, consider a food processor with more speed settings for quicker and more effiicient food preparation. Some food processors are available with multiple blades that cut raw ingredients into different shapes and sizes for use in different recipes. Some include anti-leak features that make them ideal for blending soups, dressings, and other liquids. When considering food processors, keep in mind the features that will best suit your business and help make your food preparation convenient and efficient.
