5 surprising usesWhether you already have a food processor or are going to treat yourself to one, you probably know that it's a wizard in the kitchen because it can slice, chop, shred, mince, and puree. But it can do a whole lot more. We just finished testing 17 full-sized models and some of the results surprised even us. Here are five ways your food processor can be a bigger help in the kitchen.
1. Grating Parmesan Cheese Sure we love the Microplane fine zester/grater for a quick shower of Parm to top a bowl of pasta but when the lasagna recipe calls for a ½ cup or maybe more, hand grating can be tedious...trust us, we know. If you cut your wedge of cheese into chunks about 1-inch in size, and whiz them in the processor fitted with the blade, NOT the grating attachment, you'll be amazed at the results!
