Here are three great kitchen “all-rounders” that will definitely earn their right to stay close at hand for all their different uses.
Rice cookers are great for steamed rice, but did you know you can also cook risotto, pilaff, oats and polenta. If it comes with a steamer insert, you can also cook vegetables and fish.
Food processors are one of the most versatile of all appliances. Not only do they do all the normal food processor jobs, but some also having added attachments like citrus presses, blenders, juice extractors, dough hooks, mini bowls for small quantities and baby food and coffee and spice grinders.
Stick blenders are a great way to chop, mix, and whisk when you don’t want to pull out your food processor. They are great for making cream soups, where you can directly puree in the saucepan and hollandaise and béarnaise sauce, where quantities are too small for large food processors.
