My Mini Cuisinart
I call mine 'the whizzer' and I use it for everything! "Just chuck it in the whizzer!" is often heard around these parts. And I still love using it every single time.
Having been a single parent and student for so long, I would have never thought of buying an electric appliance(!) when I had managed all my life without. I am the one you've heard of, who searched out a wringer washer just because I wanted to 'do it myself'. But, if truth be told, I don't know if I could go back now when it literally takes me minutes to throw a pie together.
My whizzer makes brilliant pie crust dough, hummus, curry paste - you name it! And I have had mine for going on ten years now, so I have put it through the paces in our busy kitchen.
My now husband bought if for me the first Christmas we knew each other, before we were even together! Little did I know that it would be used in the kitchen in our own happy house all these years later. (*Side note: I think he may have actually bought it for me because when I was trying to 'find my way to his heart through his stomach', I made him a series of seriously horrific apple pies because I was trying to work so fast I could never get the crust right. And growing up in France and having a mother who was a gourmet cook, with every kind of fancy appliance you can buy, I guess he felt this kindly gift would improve my chances, and of course it did!).
I don't ever want my whizzer to break down, but if it ever does I will be really excited to buy my next one, because check out all the colours!!
Love the red!
I just bought an OXO ice cream scoop and am thrilled with the quality - I am going to grab these asap.
I only use stainless now, there is just nothing better, and you never have to worry about the 'no stick coating' ever coming off!
