Happy Holidays: It’s In the Dip & Small Appliance Review

When my mother first introduced me to cooking, she started me off with small tasks. I was stirring potato salad, snapping fresh green beans, and using the hand mixer until I she could trust me with a knife. Once I was allowed to use a knife, I was peeling & chopping everything from apples to zucchini.

Fast forward to 2014 and I had the opportunity to test the Stack & Snap 10 Cup Food Processor from Hamilton Beach. This versitle small kitchen appliance allows you to chop, purée, slice, and shred with one handy kitchen tool.

This food processor helped me make made two of the three dipping sauces for my homemade lamb meatballs. I made the 2 dipping sauces in less than 20 minutes. This food processor is fast and powerful. I was even able to shred cabbage and sweet potatoes without overheating the motor.

While you are using it, don’t think you are going to hold a conversation while the Stack & Snap is on. Do you want power or do you want silence? Even though it is noisy, this easy to use and versatile small

appliance might just find a home on my counter. Counter space is limited in my petite kitchen. You know it must be useful if counter top real estate is spare 🙂

The Stack & Snap costs about $49 to $60 USD at your favorite retailer. Treat yourself or the cook in your life to the Stack & Snap 10 Cup Food Processor. Oh, how I wish the Stack & Snap around when I was a kid 🙂
