Since all food processors basically do the same tasks, you will want to find a powerful machine that can process food quickly and consistently. Many food processors come with a stainless steel S-shaped chopping/mincing/pureeing blade, plastic dough blade and slicer/grater discs. Any other attachments are good but not essential.

Safety features. Make sure that the bowl locks onto the base and that the top locks onto the bowl and that the processor will not start unless the processor is locked together securely.

Buying the Best Pressure cooker

Buying the best pressure cooker, does not always mean buying the brand that is considered to be top of the line. Some top of the line cookers don’t cook as efficiently as those that cost less.

The efficiency of a pressure cooker is determined by how much constant pressure is being exerted within the pot while cooking a meal. This pressure is known as operating pressure and should remain constant though out the cooking cycle. In 1917, the USDA(United States Department of Agriculture} set a standard of 15 psi(pounds per square inch) for pressure cookers manufactured in the US to target and destroy microorganism such as botulism and salmonella that are found on all foods and are associated with food being mishandled. Yet all cookers do not adhere to this standard and take longer to cook than those that do. Most recipes that are created for pressure cooking are written to cook by the USDA standard. Knowing what to look for, before buying, can be an essential step in purchasing a cooker that provides the maximum savings in energy and the time it takes to cook a meal. Pressure cookers today, are a lot safer than the one that grandmother used and are equipped with more safety features to prevent explosions that haunted their use in the past.

Here are some questions that you may want to have answered before buying what you consider to be the best pressure cooker for you.

How do you plan to use your cooker? Cooking, canning or both? The pressure cooker, You choose, should not be used to can foods. It does not meet the USDA standards for a canner If you plan on using it for both cooking and canning, buy a pressure canner. It is better suited for both cooking a meal and canning.

Knife set- A Guide

Most knife experts will tell you to never buy a knife set. I’m here to say that a proper knife set is a cook’s best friend and kitchen’s best asset. Here’s how to decide if a knife block is right for you, find the perfect knife set, and maintain it for a lifetime.

The sort of person who really gets the best out of a knife set is someone who loves to prepare nice meals from fresh ingredients, who has a kitchen that they adore and who really basks in how homey and comfortable or sleek and stylish it is. A knife block works great for someone who is very busy, and who doesn’t mind making dinner, but knows that in order to make it more enjoyable, they need to make the prep work run smoother. If they had more time, or if it were easier to prepare it, they would use fresh produce in every meal. A knife set is best for someone who doesn’t have very much time to do research and wants to find new tools efficiently.

The other argument that most knife experts make is that sets are loaded with “filler knives that you’ll never use,” or that “all you ever need is a chef knife.” I’m going to say it once and for all. Yes, you can eek by with just a chef knife, and yes, you will use your chef knife more than any other knife that you have. But try to use your chef knife to carve a pumpkin, remove the scales from a fish, or slice a loaf of freshly baked Italian bread and you will see that while you don’t do those jobs very often, when you do them you want the proper knife for the job. It’s like your stand mixer. While the paddle attachment gets 95% of the action, you still need the whisk attachment for whipped cream and the dough hook for dough.
