The answer is a resounding yes!
I usually like to take my time with giving you the final answer to the question I pose in the title, but this is not one of those times. The answer is just so obvious there’s no point in trying to build any sort of suspense or something along those lines. I’ve read a bunch of interviews with some of the worlds most famous chefs, and most of them admit using food processors in their kitchen.
That “admits” almost sounded like they have something to hide J I’ve also conducted a lot of interviews myself, and know a lot of those people in person, so I’m not basing this article solely on what I found online.
Food processors are very nifty appliances, and now that I took a bite out of this article I’m starting to wonder why I decided to write about this in the first place; of course famous chefs use them! How could they not? So, as I’ve already said my generally present suspense will have to be suspended this time around as we pretty much already know the answer.
But there’s probably still something I can tell you that’ll prove useful if you ever decide to hit the stores searching for the right food processor for you. What’s that, you asking? Well, I can tell you WHY chefs use food processors. We know they do, but we’re still not all that clear on the reasoning behind it. I’ll try and shed some light on the whole matter now that my suspenseful game is pretty much done for.
Yes, they do, but why?
Let’s go over some of the points as to why cooks all around the world use these machines.
First of all, they do one hell of a job. I know chefs have a bunch of helpers around the kitchen, but they’re all humans at the end of the day and they get what? That’s right, they get tired after a while, but the quality of the work still needs to be at the highest possible level. Food processors allow for the same work quality 100 percent of the time according to expert Andreea Dalena of Chop Chop Labz.
So, I wouldn’t exactly say they do a better job at chopping, smoothing, shredding, kneading, but they basically do. The quality of food and service is everything when you’re in restaurant business, and food processors help immensely with one of those aspects so is it really such a conundrum that chefs use them?
The other reason is time. In terms of saving it on a daily basis. Every person, no matter how skilled will take significantly more time to do the same thing the processor will do in mere minutes, or even seconds.
People are often comparing food processors to blenders and ask a legitimate question: “Why can’t I just use a blender for all that work”? The answer is power. Sheer power. Blenders are way less powerful than your average processor, and they’ll also need water in order to get something going.
Processors will just fly through the ingredients without any water or anything; they’ll just go, so to say.
So, they’ll do the necessary work in a lot less time than a human ever could, so they’ll be making extra cash to their owners since time is money as we all know.
