Since I lived alone, I owned an old electric mixer that belonged to my grandma. It was working quite well, but it could only mix or chop.
Being a ambitious cooker might require proper gear… so when I had to change my food processor I made up my mind to buy a multipurpose machine that combines several skills in one.
From the very beginning, I was a little scared of buying a bulky and heavy electric appliance. But you know what? I thought I needed a good processor to take care of all those repetitive and boring tasks in the preparation of food… and I convinced myself that after some time the new food processor would have become a real necessity to me.
So a bought a brand new food processor that cannot only mix and chop, but that can also slice, beat, whisk, rasp, grate, blend and juice.
When I bought it, the salesman dared to call it “compact”, and I might admit it‘s freackin’ compact to be a minivan.
But it was multitasking, right?
So, let’s talk about the optional accessories and pieces, that at the beginning seemed all essential to me.
I thought that accessories should stay handy, every day at my fingertips… but I ended having a hell of blades and detachable parts hanging around everywhere in my kitchen for days.
Having little toddlers around they become a real danger for us…
So I come to the decision of storing the majority of them in a huge box, but since I do not have any room, I didn’t know where to store the box.
So I began to store the box next to the hob (where it was really obstructing), then I transferred it on the top of the refrigerator (where it was really dusty and challenging as I’m not that tall), later I relocate it in the highest shelf of the highest kitchen cabinet (where it was really unattainable), than I moved it down to the cellar (where it’s really useless) .
Now the food processor I own can only mix or chop, unless I go down to the cellar.
