Products and Tools
Below are some products and tools that are handy in the kitchen when it comes to puréeing food.
Blender: A blender is perfect for making smoothies and small to medium sized servings of pureed food.
Mini Food Processor: 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 Mini Food Processor.
Large 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.
