4 Reasons Why You Need a Food Processor in Your Kitchen

McKenzie Jones | November 23, 2021

If you’ve ever stood in your kitchen overwhelmed by the idea of simply chopping up veggies for dinner, you are not alone. With full days and never-ending to-do lists, making a new recipe that requires just a bit more effort can feel daunting, to say the least. Fortunately, the nutribullet® Food Processor helps take the hassle out of eating well. Not convinced? Here are four ways this product makes your kitchen life so much easier.

It does the work of multiple appliances.

Each appliance in your kitchen takes up valuable “real estate” when it comes to cupboard and counter space. so it’s important that you use your limited “land” with intention. The nutribullet® Food Processor won’t gather any dust; it will be put to work. It can do the work of a cheese grater, a sharp knife, a spiralizer, a pastry cutter, and more. That translates to a lot of saved space. An added bonus? Blade attachments fit smartly inside the work bowl when not in use, so you can stack and store without any extra clutter.

It’s easy to clean.

Unlike some food processors or kitchen appliances that may feature bulky components, hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, and pieces that require hand-washing, ours is a breeze to clean since it’s dishwasher-safe. This means more time in your precious evenings to do the stuff you actually want to do (and we know that’s not the dishes).

It makes meal prep and eating healthier so much easier.

If you thought you’d never be someone who makes their own salad dressings or nut butters from scratch, think again. A food processor really makes it simple to eat more healthfully and affordably. Since homemade condiments and meals often cost less than their store-bought counterparts, your wallet – and your tastebuds – will notice the difference.

It will help get you out of your cooking rut.

3 Recipes to Make with Your Food Processor

Arugula Pistachio Pesto. For a peppery twist on an Italian classic, swap out basil and pine nuts for arugula and pistachios. Our version also substitutes nutritional yeast for Parmesan to create a fully plant-based alternative.

Ratatouille. A simple blend of summer vegetables becomes a showstopper when thinly sliced and arranged in a beautiful spiral formation. It’s the perfect dish for an elegant dinner party or any special meal.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Apple Salad. With its hearty ingredients and crunchy, nutty goodness, this salad is an excellent choice for picnics and meal prep, or pretty much any mealtime situation.
