With the kids doing school from home now, I’ve been in the kitchen even more than normal. While the extra time at home has been great for trying out new recipes and reorganizing my kitchen, I will admit that I miss taking short lunches. There’s just so much more to cook now. Luckily, I have a few tools in my kitchen that make it easy to keep up with the increased workload.
I’ve picked up plenty of food containers, mixing bowls, and spatulas to help out, but my favorite has been a Cuisinart food processor. It’s quickly become the heart of my kitchen and I use it for almost every meal or prep session. Growing up, I never understood the reason behind owning one. My mom would cut all her vegetables and chop things herself, or just turn to a blender. Now I see just how much time she could have saved for all these years! And there’s plenty more you can do – I picked up a bunch of different attachments that help me with mincing, shredding, and even cutting fries.
I’m part of plenty of different mom groups across Facebook and Pinterest, and other moms kept talking about how great Cuisinart food processors were. I was right to take their advice and pick one up, but I continued my own research. That’s how I found out about different accessories that can help with cutting, pushing, and more. I had to try out some of these functions, so I started looking for retailers online.
After searching for a while, I came across Kitchen Works Inc. They’re an online marketplace that has a ton of Cuisinart food processor replacement parts. Luckily, my Cuisinart is still new enough that I don’t need to replace anything, but they also carry accessories! I picked up a plastic dough blade, a larger bowl kit, and discs that help with different cuts. It’s great because their parts are all Cuisinart official, so I know I’m buying quality. Like the food processor itself, I don’t worry about breaking them or running into issues. Even if it happened, I could just replace the parts from the website again!
It’s great being able to use the food processor for so much more. Now, I often just prepare everything for the day right before lunch and make dinner preparation a breeze. All my vegetables and produce are cut already and my dough has time to rise after using the Cuisinart! I have the same free time now that I used to before making meals for everyone, but now I also know that my kids are eating healthier. Everybody wins!
My husband is happier too; all my kitchen gadgets had started spilling into the garage, packed up in boxes. Now that I use attachments for the food processor instead, we can get rid of all the old one-use appliances I had. We’ve cleared up a ton of space in the basement and my kitchen is easier to use than ever.
