I don’t use a lot of power tools, but here are a few I use over and over and over.
My food processor has a special blade and push-button operation for making dough. Makes my weekly batch of pizza dough in 30 seconds flat. Less than half a minute to make a week’s worth of soffrito, salsa verde or gazpacho.
My Slow Cooker needs 90 minutes to make Psychedelic Polenta when I’m willing to give up an hour of soulful, peaceful stirring. I set it to “low” and let it go slow for 24 hours for the amazing Pulled Pork with Second-Hand Smoke.
