4 Types of Food Processors for Your Kitchen

Are you thinking of buying a Food Processor for yourself? If so, then you should learn more about the different types of food processors available.

There are basically 4 types of Food processors available in the market: Batch Bowl, Continuous Feed, Combination, and Buffalo choppers. Each of these food processors is different in its structure and its functioning and have different pros and cons associated with them.

Batch Bowl

In this type of food processor, batches of food are passed into the processor which gets collected in the bowl. A user drops the food items inside the bowl to slice the food item and a central pillar in the processor holds an ‘S’ shaped disk which cuts all the food items that come into contact with its surface.

This blade or disc cut the food into your desired shape and size and the bowl can be detached so that the sliced and diced food items can be emptied from this bowl.

Usually, a bowl can hold 1-6 quarts of cut food items and a few commercial food processors can hold even larger quantity. One can even use multiple bowls in a rotation to save time and prepare large batches of food at a time.

Continuous Feed

In this type of food processor, a user can continuously feed the food to the food processor which simultaneously processes the food items and dispenses them out into another container. This saves time and allows one to process large batches without any interruption, quickly and efficiently.

So, basically you don’t have to wait or empty the bowl in this type of food processor, you can keep on feeding it the food items until you are done.

Combination

This type of food processors employ both the features of a Batch Bowl processor and a Continuous Feed processor.

This food processor allows the user to continuously feed the food into the food processor and processes the food simultaneously while using the bowl or attaching an additional unit for dispensing the food outside the processor. This again saves time and makes the entire process more efficient and powerful.

Buffalo Choppers

One of the best types of food processors for someone who is looking for a sturdy and heavy food processor, a buffalo chopper can handle all kinds of food. You can use this food processor to chop meat, raw carrots, etc. They have an all-metal structure which makes it more powerful than other types of food processors and makes them an all-purpose tool.

You can also attach add-ons like slicers, graters, etc. to their accessory hubs and make them more versatile and useful. Trust me, buffalo chopper is the type of food processor that one should opt for when they would be chopping a lot of different types of food items and would need to perform large batches of processing on food items.

So, now that you know about the different types of food processors, why not go out and check some model for yourself?

OH…THE PLACES I’VE BEEN

I’ve sat down to write a blog post at least fifty times, and each time I find I don’t know what to say. It’s like writing a letter to a long lost friend and you just don’t even know where to start.

So I’ll just start by saying that I’ve missed all of you. I miss having a place to vent and catch up with friends, new and old. I miss knowing what’s happening in your lives. You move me and inspire me every day, and I really need that in my life right now.

I used to think my parents were insane when they would mumble things like “where does all the time go?” And “Man this year really flew by.” I was desperately afraid of turning into them. Yet here I am wondering where the hell this past year has gone.

What on earth, you may ask, have I been doing this past year? Since it obviously hasn’t been blogging…

Well, I got my first job as a pastry chef. That’s the biggest news. Most days I love it. Other days I feel like I’m in way over my head and I’m waiting for someone to catch on and tell me the gig is up. I frequently come home cut and/or burned and smelling like a bizarre mixture of buttercream frosting, seafood, and I’m sad to say, sweat with the bottoms of my feet so sore that all I want to do sit down and never move again.

Bet you didn’t know being a chef was so glamorous, did you? All kidding aside it’s like I’ve finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. It’s truly extraordinary, despite smelling badly and the scars I will eventually need a plethora of tattoos to cover up.

My son has been working on his driver’s license, and my teenage daughter has been working on driving me crazy with her newfound love of texting and stupid boys, and worse texting stupid boys. Being a teenage girl must be harder than I remember because it blows my mind that anyone can cry that much. I’m sure I was NOT like that when I was younger.

Meanwhile my youngest has been doing her best to make me feel good every day by reminding me how old and tired I look all the time. Sweet isn’t it?

I’m busy enough that picking up The Grammercy Tavern Cookbook now qualifies as reading a book, and my daily dose of news involves the pop radio station telling me which 52 celebrities supposedly have herpes. For reals… (A side note– if Derek Jeter ever asks you out, tell him hell no!)

I’m a full season behind on The Walking Dead and Glee – so PLEASE don’t spoil them for me. And I have been sleeping on an unmade bed for three days now because I just can’t be bothered to put clean sheets on it. I tell myself I’m just doing my part to keep the mattress industry going strong.

When I’m lucky, all the planets align and I have an entire day off with nothing to do and can spend the day playing with my camera and catching up on my favorite blogs. Pretending I still have a life that doesn’t revolve around my kids and my white coat. Pretending is the key word here.

I’m thinking I may need to rename my blog Le Cirque du (insert something catchy here that I’m just too tired to think of) after the three ring circus it has become. Some days I’m seriously not sure if I’m the ringmaster of just one of the clowns.

But enough about me, how have you all been? Any exciting news I’ve missed?
