What's the Big Blendin' deal with blenders?
Blenders are by far the most universal and versatile kitchen appliance you could possibly own. It is NOT just smoothies, although it does take smoothies to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL when you realize it's potential. Ice creams and sorbets can be made for pennies on the dollar! Hot soups? Make them from scratch in a couple minutes. There will be a list of foods you NEVER need to buy again because it wouldn't make sense, once you have a blender and a blender stick. Let's say for example, hash browns. The machine can make plain hash browns or gourmet hash browns in a matter of a minute! NO! In a matter of SECONDS. Cheaper, fresher, better, healthier, no preservatives- your hash browns can be just POTATOES! How about applesauce? These days they're FULL of high fructose corn syrup, preservatives so they can sit on a shelf for months, added sugar, and even color... WHY? WHY DOES THE WORLD FEEL THE NEED TO CHANGE APPLE SAUCE FOR GOODNESS SAKES. Take a an apple, CORE, SKIN, STEM, THE SEEDS, HECK YOU CAN THROW IN THE WORM FOR A LITTLE EXTRA PROTEIN IF YOU'd LIKE (ok i won't go that far), but throw it in a blender and bam! In 25 seconds or less you have home made apple sauce with all the nutrition that a typical $100 dollar or $500 apple sauce maker would throw out (And without the hassle and clean up). Wait, you don't want plain apple sauce? Well go ahead and add all the processed sugars for all the people who enjoy doctor visits and complications. Or, instead of doing that, you could add a frozen or fresh strawberry or two, and make the world's best, healthiest and freshest strawberry apple sauce in less than 1 minute with a quick clean up. See where I'm going. The switch turns impossibles to possibles. It can take whatever you're eating and allow a more fresh, healthier pathway to making it in your kitchen. Let's say you want spaghetti for dinner. Don't buy that junk on the shelf and it doesn't matter which brand. It's been on a shelf for months. Take or create your own spaghetti sauce recipe. Throw in tomatoes, juice from lemon, a touch of basil, a little onion, some seasonings hiding away in your cupboard for the last 7 years, whatever your heart desires and blend. Boom-- you just created your own spaghetti sauce in seconds! From Homemade tartar sauce for your hubbies fish, to desserts, salsas, baby food, soup, chopping, mincing and all food processing, homemade coleslaw in seconds, homemade horseradish, wheat berries to flour, or regular popcorn to cornmeal in seconds, rice to rice flour, take care of all of your dairy-free and gluten free allergies and be confident, homemade almond or rice milk, fresh peanut butter. This list could on for hours why? If a good blender and the Tamperla™ blender stick can't make it whole, it can help out partially with the chop, mix, stir, process to compliment whatever you're making, all with a quick clean up!
