Food Processors - An Essential Kitchen Tool

Even though slicing can be done through knives, an electric meat slicer is something that should be a common kitchen tool for every household. So, in order to pick the perfect electric meat slicer, here are some tips and know-hows on seeing if that slicer is the one for you. I found these at an auction today - another item I've used myself many times - a toast or sandwich cooker for use over an open fire, mainly. I'm sure you could use it over a wood stove as well.. The handles open, you place inside any type of bread or sandwich you wish toasted, and turning it over a fire, you get a nice warm sandwich. I'm sure you could use also cook small pieces of meat in it, or roast some vegetables. While in operation the bowl is locked in place to the base for stability and security. Most home models come equipped with a 4-6 quart bowl while commercial models can have capacities upwards of 100 quarts. The core mixing attachments are the a dough hook for kneading, a wire whip for whipping egg whites, a flat beater for making batters and a pouring shield to minimize splash out. These come standard in home models. There are two main variations for the stand mixer: The bowl-lift and and tilt-head. The tilt-head mixers allow easy access to the bowl and beaters. 

Head is tilted back for access and tilted down to lock and mix. The bowl-lift mixer comes with sturdy arms to securely lock the metal bowl. An easy turn of the lever raises and lowers the bowl. Your child follows you in the kitchen then she asks what an appliance is. She asks what it is for, why do you need to do that, and how do you do that. The toaster can be a very good to start with. It is small, it is easy to use, and the answers to all the three simple questions of your kid are easy to understand. You can simply tell her that the toaster is a machine that produces heat. The heat will make the bread perfectly brown which signals that it is already for heating. The buttons that she should press are also easy to locate. 

Cleaning the toaster is also a breeze so there is no doubt that your child can do it herself. Most of the toasters have a stay-cool exterior which will not make you worry about your child's safety. This first item I found hanging in a tree at an acquaintances house. That's right, hanging in a tree! The interesting part is the head, since it is not the most common of its type. Can you guess what this is? Imagine it with a lot of string on it, wet, being pushed across a dirty floor. This item is a mop, but what makes it unique is the wringing mechanism. The strings were put into the hook, the handle cranked and all the excess water was gotten out. I'm betting if you got really skillful with this item, you never had to get your hands wet! Unclog a kitchen sink: Mix equal parts vinegar, salt and baking soda and pour solution down drain; let it sit one hour, then pour very hot water down the drain. 

Get excited about this new way of cooking, with an old kitchen tool. These cookers can be purchased in different sizes such a 4 quart for smaller meals, while a family of 4 or 5 may consider a 5 to 8 quart size or larger. Keep in mind Pressure Cookers work more efficiently when filled 2/3 full. Stainless Steel is one of the most popular metals used for cooking. Change your mind set and rethink the way you cook.
