Overachieving kitchen appliances can be good for consumers. Having one appliance that can handle only one task at a time can waste time, space and money. Add another feature however, and suddenly you have a combination appliance, quite often with enough multitasking abilities to prevent us from purchasing a second, similar appliance.
With one 500-watt motor, the Cuisinart PowerBlend Duet Blender/Food Processor supplies the power and usability of two popular kitchen appliances. Featuring interchangeable work vessels, the machine is capable of a variety of tasks. In food processor mode, the appliance allows users the ability to slice, shred or chop. Exchanging the 3-cup food processor work bowl for the 56-oz. glass blender jar brings even more prepping abilities to the countertop, with standard blender features that include: Pulse, Stir, Mix, Puree, Chop and Crush Ice.
Using the right tool for the job is essential in the kitchen, and food processors and blenders, while similar, have distinctly different uses. Having control in the kitchen is a feature in and of itself, and having the right equipment facilitates as such. With space and budget concerns being as they are, a little convenience in the kitchen in the form of handy, multitasking appliances is sure to be appreciated.
