I don’t use a lot of power tools, but here are a few I use over and over and over.

Food Processor

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 soffritosalsa verde or gazpacho.

Stick Blender

My Mini-Blender/Stick Blender is great for small batches of all kinds of things, like the flavor base syrup for homemade ginger ale or a pot of borscht.

Slow Cooker

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.

Ice Cream Maker

The first thing to know: when you churn your own, it’s soft – like ‘soft-serve’ ice cream. And it’s crazy good right out of the machine – really hard to eat slowly.
