Products and Tools

Below are some products and tools that are handy in the kitchen when it comes to pureeing food.

 

Blender: A blender is perfect for making smoothies and small to medium sized servings of pureed food.

Food Chopper: This is a great option for making individual to a few servings.  It is also easy to store in your kitchen.  One recommended product is the KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Food Chopper.

Food Processor: Use this if you are making many servings.  A good option if you’re looking to make a large quantity and freeze.

Coffee/Spice Grinder: The perfect tool for grinding rice or oats before cooking.

Spatulas: It’s always a good idea to have a few small spatulas on hand to scrape the sides of the blender/food chopper/food processor.

Forms: Egg rings or cookie cutters work well to form the puree into a more appealing look.  Also try using ramekins.

Piping Bag: A creative option for plating pureed food.

Food and Liquid Thickener: More commonly used for thickening drinks.  Also used when food is too thin.  Recommended product is Thicken Up Clear.
