Small food processor.. Quickly chops up small quantities of onions or garlic. Easier to clean than larger model
Krups coffee grinder. This unit will never grind coffee beans. It will be used for grinding spices
The mixing bowl where the spices are chopped
Black & white peppercorns, coriander & mustard seeds ground to make pastrami rub
Large food processor. Larger bowl, more horsepower than smaller models
Liquids for marinades can be prepped in the Food Processor
Zyliss mandolin slicer. Quickly cuts long strips of veggies, meat or cheese. Perfect for Matambre
The fixings for Matambre were all cut on the mandolin slicer.
A slicer makes quick work of slicing meat for sandwiches. The slices are uniform thickness & can be paper thin
Being able to turn out constant slices quickly is a great asset
An electric knife makes quick work of slicing chores. I find for delicate meats or meats with a crusty rub or stuffing it beats a hand knife or slicer
This electric knife has a meat blade & a wide bread blade. The bread blade is great for thin slices for topping soups
FoodSaver vacuum packs food items before or after their use. The shelf life of the food item is vastly extended
Light & dark brown sugar sealed in FoodSaver canisters never gets hard or lumpy & is always ready to use
The FoodSaver containers come in many sizes suitable for all sorts of tasks.
The food is put in a special bag sealed on three sides
The open end goes in the Food Saver which sucks out the air and heat seals the bag
Another great use for FoodSaver bags is for marinading or brining food. You can make any custom size bag you need. You seal the bag at one end, put in the food and liquid, then partially vacuum the bag and seal the other end.
An Immersion blender combines a Food Processor and Blender into an easy to clean device that you bring to the food.
An immersion blender can be used right in a pan or the container you are mixing in. The blender comes with a lidded plastic cup for smaller batches of food which serves to concentrate the food near the blade of the blender.
For around $50 (less if you buy a set of attachments) you can turn your KitchenAid stand mixer into a meat grinder that works really well for small meat grinding tasks such as making your own sausage or hamburger
I have used it extensively to bring my own burger meat and as long as you take care to keep the meat and the grinder parts very cold, it does a great job grinding small batches of meat
Nothing goes better with freshly grilled food than fresh juice. This is the KitchenAid Juicer Attachment for their stand mixers.
It allows you to turn fresh fruit into freshly squeezed juice.
Several appliances for the Kitchen allow you to make quick work of various food prep tasks. Some are essential, some are optional but nice to have.
